A family apartment on the fourth floor of a fine edifice of dressed stone,
nestled in the splendid eighth arrondissement of Paris
Paris, PARIS paris 75008 FR


The apartment lies in the Europe district of Paris, which is on the right bank of the River Seine in the city’s eighth arrondissement. It is not far from the lush Parc Monceau and the trendy Batignolles neighbourhood. The French capital’s famous eighteenth arrondissement with its quaint streets around the Abbesses area is also close, as is the Saint-Georges district in the ninth arrondissement with its range of theatres. The road on which the apartment building stands was built between 1847 and 1867. It is mainly residential. The street is lined with fine apartment buildings of dressed stone made at the time of Georges-Eugène Haussmann’s far-reaching renovation of Paris. Mid-nineteenth century writers and intellectuals cherished this splendid neighbourhood. The French poet Stéphane Mallarmé, who translated works by Edgar Allan Poe, lived here. He taught English at the Lycée Condorcet secondary school nearby.


There are no shops on the ground floor of the apartment building. The edifice has seven levels: a ground floor; four upper floors and a fifth one set back with a slightly sloping roof and a continuous balcony; and a sixth floor in the roof. The building’s seven bays of windows are embellished with surrounds of mouldings. The windows stand behind finely crafted wrought-iron guardrails. Folding metal shutters protect them. A covered entrance area leads into an inner courtyard with fan-shaped paving that recalls the concave face that looks down at it. A fountain stands on the court’s far side. A glazed door takes you into the hallway. This hall’s floor is covered with a magnificent marble mosaic in which a patterned strip frames a central floral design. Dado panelling adorns the walls. The upper part of the walls is decorated with mirrors. From this hallway, you walk through another glazed double door to the building’s staircase leading upstairs. A lift shaft rises up in the axis of a spiral staircase of oak steps, upon which a woollen carpet lies under thin brass bars.

The apartment is nestled on the fourth floor. It has kept all its decorative features from the period when it was built: a marble fireplace, glazed internal doors, chevron parquet flooring of solid oak and finely designed cornices with patterns that vary from room to room. This bright apartment enjoys a dual-aspect layout: seven street-facing windows and six court-facing ones fill all the rooms with natural light. The apartment’s hallway connects to the different rooms in a radial layout: a bedroom and a living room on one side, a dining room on the right, a bedroom with a bathroom and a separate lavatory on the left, and lastly a corridor with a wardrobe and a third bedroom with a bathroom. You also reach the fitted kitchen from the corridor. The heating and hot water come from gas, on a private, rather than a communal, basis. The property includes a cellar in the basement too.

Our opinion

This splendid apartment has kept its true soul – from its gleaming parquet floor to its finely crafted mouldings. The dwelling’s aesthetics and layout have been carefully conserved since the period when it was built. Its rooms are comfortable and flooded with natural light, benefitting from the apartment’s dual-aspect position up on the fourth floor. Its radial layout opens up countless possibilities for transformation: the place could be a magnificent family home or the premises of a professional private practice. Furthermore, it is ideally located, in a mainly residential environment away from urban bustle yet close to the trendy Parisian districts of Saint-Georges, Batignolles and Abbesses.
