A 218 m², family flat, between Trocadero Gardens and Passy,
in Paris’ 16th arrondissement
Paris, PARIS paris 75016 FR


This district, nesting between the Iéna and the Bir-Hakeim bridges, between Passy and Trocadéro Gardens, is perhaps one of the most beautiful in Paris. Those strolling along the embankments and through the few surrounding streets pass the homogeneous architecture of luxury, middle-class buildings and mansion houses. On one side, the embassies and, on the other, Eiffel Tower and some of France’s most famous museums. A place for walking or patronising, everything is to hand: sports and leisure centres, renowned schools, chic restaurants, etc. It also has a very good public transport network, with several RER train and underground stations as well as numerous bus stops.


Albert-Joseph-Sélonier, architect of constructions after the Haussmannian era, was one of the most prolific known to the French capital. The city boasts no less than 300 of his buildings, including the dressed stone one housing this flat. Once through the wrought door protected by numerical keypad and surveillance security systems, visitors reach the comfort of a wide hall. This flat takes up the entire second floor, accessed via a large stairway. There, a vast gallery, paved with stone featuring inlaid decoration, leads, on one hand, to the reception rooms, with their herringbone pattern parquet flooring and their balcony: a lounge, a small lounge, a dining room with an adjoining pantry and kitchen. At the other end are four bedrooms (including one with an adjoining bathroom), a bathroom, a shower room as well as three toilets and numerous cupboards. Three large cellars as well as two staff bedrooms come with the flat. A car parking space is also available below the flat.

The flat

Double doors provide access to this 218 m² flat. All early 20th century decorative codes become immediately obvious. A vast gallery, with a stone floor featuring inlaid decoration and a 3.2 m high ceiling, leads, on one side, to the reception areas. Each of the ceilings in the lounge, the small lounge and the dining room, with their gilt marble fireplaces, are enhanced with moulding and friezes, depicting cherubs and country scenes. The walls are embellished with coffers and the floors with herringbone pattern parquet flooring, creating a classical style. The three rooms feature large, double doors opening on to a long, stone balcony. A functional kitchen is separated from the dining room by a pantry. On the other side of the gallery are four bedrooms. The first and biggest has its own bathroom. Once again, moulding and a fireplace are part of the decorative features. The three other bedrooms share a bathroom and a shower room. Two staff bedrooms, including one with a view of Eiffel Tower, as well as three cellars complete this property.

Our opinion

The building, standing like a giant of elegance amidst its peers, is in an up-market district of the French capital, where embassies meet historic monuments. This flat is a reflection of the building: noble, classical and charming. Intricate moulding, walls with cap moulding and trumeaux fireplaces all bear witness to an era when, during the World’s Fairs, Trocadéro Gardens, Champ-de-Mars and Eiffel Tower showcased Paris which became the artistic and cultural centre of the world. Between its vast reception rooms, its four bedrooms and its high ceilings as well as the proximity of good shops and renowned schools, this home is the ideal place for a family to live in the middle of the Left Bank
