An elegant, 154 m² family flat, ideal for mixed purposes,
in the Ville-l’Évêque district of Paris’ 8th arrondissement
Paris, PARIS paris 75008 FR

Location

This location, between Rue-de-Surène and Rue-de-la-Ville-l’Évêque, is the very centre of one of the French capital’s historic areas: the Ville-l’Évêque district. The street, created under Louis XVI, owes its name to the Duke of Anjou, prior to his becoming King Henri III. It is lined with mansion houses, built in the 18th century where noblemen and close members of the royal family lived. After the French Revolution, it remained just as sought-after and numerous personalities such as La-Fayette, Talleyrand, Crawford and Nadar, photographer and friend of impressionist painters, purchased properties there. And nowadays, this lively district is just as fashionable, with its food shops, its many restaurants, Madeleine and Treillart markets and its emblematic brasseries such as Café-Pouchkine. Nearby, the Seine embankments and Place-de-la-Concorde provide access to the centre of Paris and its suburbs. The nearest underground stations are Concorde and Madeleine. Renowned schools such as Condorcet and Fénelon are in the vicinity.

Description

The sober, elegant building is typical of the Restoration period. Its whitened quarry stone block facade, marked with horizontal moulding, features tall windows, with slatted shutters and Louis XVI style ironwork railings. On the third floor, below the attic floor with its roof dormers, runs a cornice, decorated with a frieze featuring guttae and plant bas-relief. Double, moulded, wooden entrance doors, topped with a cornice supported on corbelling with triglyphs, open into a vestibule, with mosaic flooring and a Greek frieze. A lift goes up to the third floor. This flat, with its white walls featuring cap moulding, its tall doors, its moulded ceilings and its herringbone parquet flooring, is in a good state of repair. Spanning a floor surface area of 154 m², this quiet, bright flat, with its 3 m high ceilings, faces west, east and south, providing unobstructed views over Rue-d’Anjou and Rue-de-Surène. The entrance gallery provides access to a spacious, 24 m² dining room, its walls lined with bookshelves, and a 31 m² reception lounge, with a fireplace illuminated via tall windows, just like the three large bedrooms. Overlooking the inner, restored courtyards, a kitchen big enough to include an eating area is followed by a bathroom and a shower room. This family flat of high-standing would also appeal to someone wishing to work from home.

A family flat of high-standing

This 154 m² flat, in an excellent state of repair, is an elegant blend of classicism and modernity. On the third and second-to-last floor of the building, it faces east, west and south. Its tall windows, with wrought casement bolts, let copious amounts of light into every room, providing wonderful views of the mansion houses on Rue-d’Anjou and Rue-de-Surène. Under high ceilings, decorated with moulded, plant friezes, its white walls are enhanced with cap moulding and feature large, double doors. The herringbone pattern, oak wood parquet flooring is still light in colour. An entrance gallery and a corridor provide access to the various rooms. A dining room is not only used for taking convivial meals but also for reading and the clarity of a cherry wood table, set opposite a marble fireplace, contrasts subtly with the light grey-coloured wood of the bookshelves. Further on, a 31 m² living room houses a second Carrera marble fireplace with a trumeau. In the main, 24 m² bedroom, moulded panelling conceals a spacious wardrobe. A modern kitchen is enhanced with a Dutch style, gilt brass light fitting as well as a table with coloured seats. The corridor, laid with sisal matting, leads to a shower room and a bathroom as well as another two, luminous bedrooms, both with built-in cupboards.

Our opinion

This flat, equidistant from embassies and ministries, Tuileries Gardens and Place-de l'Opéra, is in a privileged part of the French capital. It is in one of those authentic streets that includes fashion houses as well as the biggest hotels and that tourists from the world over love to stroll along of an evening, to the sound of the musicians’ violins, after having visited the museums. Living here, is to experience an authentic Paris, between urban turmoil and travelling through the ages. In the midst of this exciting tumult, this flat is a combination of luminosity, refinement and meticulous restoration works. It would be equally well suited to family life as to the organising of functions or to those seeking to work from home.
