Lyon, RHONE rhones-alps 69000 FR

Location

This exceptional flat is on one of the most beautiful avenues in the city of Lyon, its wealth of history dating back over 2,000 years. Bordered by plane trees in the midst of a residential area composed of mansion houses as well as middle-class homes, reflecting the style of Monceau Park, and neighbouring shopping streets, this wonderful address is further enhanced by numerous nearby good state and private schools as well as the entrance to Tête-d'Or Park.
Part-Dieu TGV train station, 5 minutes away, provides 2-hour links to Paris and 1½-hour links to Marseille amongst other places. The Rhônexpress tramway goes directly from the train station to Lyon-Saint-Exupery international airport. Access to various motorways such as the A7, A42 or A89 is also easy.

Description

This building was constructed in 1906 using stone for its base taken from old fortifications, following its downgrading in 1884. Impressively prestigious, it is characterised by its resemblance to a mansion or chateau, with its slate-covered pavilion roof, courtesy of its marble columns and its rich neo-Renaissance decor. The building, set back off of the boulevard in the middle of an enclosed garden, can be accessed by cars via gates, set between two immense columns, or on foot via a gate next to the caretaker’s cottage or lodge. Its old stables, on the parklands side, have been transformed into four large, double garages.

The flat

The vestibule provides access to a monumental stairway just a short distance from a period lift. This flat takes up the first floor above a raised mezzanine. A carved, wooden entrance door opens into a square entrance hall leading, in turn, to a wide gallery, some 17 m long, which gives access to virtually all of the rooms. Inlaid in the walls on either side, four large paintings depict the four seasons in the style of Antoine-Watteau. Each of the two large lounges, with their three immense double windows, open on to a terrace which guarantees the quality of the luminosity. One of the terraces has a unique and stunning view over the park. This property, with its comfortably high ceilings, comprises five bedrooms, two bathrooms, a shower room, four toilets, three of which are separate, and a dining room. A laundry room, the kitchen, with its two large windows, and its back door complete this vast home. This flat still has its main historic features as does the facade, its rendering having been redone in 2017 under the supervision of architects from “Bâtiments de France”.

Our opinion

It can but be a privilege to live facing Tête-d'Or Park, the city’s green lung. As of dawn, just as the city is coming to life but peace and quiet still reign, it is very soothing to be able to take exercise or go for a stroll using a private entrance. This flat is a pearl waiting to be polished, enhanced and embellished, its spacious rooms having kept all of their authenticity.
This is, without doubt, one of those addresses worth keeping in mind.
