Between the Church of St. Mary Magdalene and the Elysée Palace,
a bright, 193 m² flat in a Louis-Philippe period building
Paris, PARIS paris 75008 FR


In a quiet, sunny street, between Rue-Royale and Rue-du-Faubourg-Saint-Honoré. This street, divided into building plots in 1650, is bordered by mansion houses and buildings dating from the 18th century and the Louis-Philippe period. The nearby Church of St. Mary Magdalene (Église de la Madeleine) and Place-de-la-Concorde contribute to the majesty of the premises. Saint-Honoré and La-Madeleine markets as well as local shops are but a stone’s throw away, as are renowned schools such as Condorcet and Racine Lycées (sixth form colleges). The district has an excellent public transport system including buses, the underground and the RER A and E train lines.


The elegant layout of the building facade, topped with an attic floor featuring a balcony, reflects the Louis-Philippe style. Windows with slatted shutters are crowned with canopies featuring corbelling and mascarons. The entrance porch, with a moulded ceiling and columns, a lovely shade of yellow, provides access to a paved courtyard, enhanced with a fountain, followed by an entrance hall with mahogany wood panelling and a travertine stone floor with black inlaid decoration. This 193 m² flat, with its herringbone pattern parquet flooring and its 3.3 m high, moulded ceilings, is on the third floor, reached via a lift. Its east-west aspect making it bright, this flat opens into spacious reception areas, spanning a total of 63 m², enhanced with a fireplace. On either side are two bedrooms, spanning 27 and 29 m². Both have fireplaces as well as bathrooms and wardrobes. A third, 16 m² bedroom, with a bathroom, looks out over the paved courtyard. It would be possible to create a fourth bedroom. Nearby are a kitchen, with an eating area, and a pantry. A spacious, lock-up garage in the courtyard is also available over and above the asking price.

A family flat of high standing

This elegant, 193 m² flat still has all of its stately, period features. Tall windows, fitted with slatted shutters, let copious amounts of light into all of the east and west-facing rooms. The 3.3 m high, moulded ceilings and walls are painted white, as are the double, moulded doors. The floor is covered with herringbone pattern, oak wood parquet flooring. The 23 m² entrance gallery immediately sets the tone with its peaceful, welcoming atmosphere. Each of the main rooms has a Carrara marble, Louis XV style fireplace. The living-dining room comprises a superb, 40 m² reception area, the total reception area spanning up to 63 m², and on either side, two bright bedrooms, respectively spanning 27 and 29 m², both with a fireplace and a bathroom. A fourth bedroom could be created. Overlooking the paved courtyard, in the main suite, the bright bedroom is enhanced with a wardrobe and a bathroom, with black marble floor tiles and salmon-coloured walls. The 12 m² kitchen, with its eating area and terracotta floor tiles, is illuminated via a delightful flower-filled window. A nearby pantry is also used as a laundry room.

Our opinion

The elegance of the premises clearly reflects that of their address. Although this flat has been immaculately kept, it is in need of some attention. Set in this lively, elegant district of Paris’ 8th arrondissement in the heart of the French capital, this flat could be used as a family home or for organising functions. It would also suit a self-employed professional seeking to work from home. And in the paved courtyard, over and above the asking price, is a vast lock-up garage that would appear essential.
