A 147 m² flat on a high floor near to the Champ-de-Mars,
with the Eiffel Tower as a look-out post
Paris, PARIS paris 75007 FR


The avenue, between the Champ-de-Mars and the Quai-Branly-Jacques-Chirac Museum, is very practical for going not only to the centre but also to the outskirts of Paris. Good state and private schools are near to this residential, family district. Local amenities include the shops in Rue-St-Dominique and Rue-de-Grenelle as well as the markets in Rue-Clerc and Avenue-du-Président-Wilson.


This dressed stone building, dating from the late 19th century, is enhanced with eclectic decoration typical of the period following the Haussmannian era. Monumental gates open into a vast gallery, dotted with canopies and wrought iron lights. The entrance hall and its flight of stairs, adorned with balusters and travertine stone floor tiles with inlaid decoration, immediately set an elegant tone. A live-in caretaker keeps an eye on the premises.
This 146 m² flat, in a very good state of repair, is on the 5th floor, reached via a lift. It comprises a 37 m² living-dining room with a kitchen, where it is possible to take meals and appreciate the balcony. Each of the three spacious bedrooms, spanning between 13 and 23 m², have their own bath or shower room.
All the rooms are luminous and either look out over the avenue’s luxury buildings, facing the Eiffel Tower, or overlook the entrance gallery, with a clear view of the Quai-Branly-Jacques-Chirac Museum.
An additional maid’s room and a small attic are on the 6th floor.

A family flat or a sumptuous pied-à-terre

This 146 m², 5th floor, through flat, with unobstructed views of the Eiffel Tower and the Quai-Branly-Jacques-Chirac Museum, is in a very good state of repair. Tall east-west facing windows let copious amounts of light into each room. The entrance gallery, with parquet flooring and white painted walls featuring moulded picture rails, provides access via double doors to a 37 m² area comprising a lounge and a dining room-kitchen. The outstanding decoration, with coffered ceilings, ova friezes, acanthus leaf scrolls and herringbone pattern parquet flooring, has been preserved. A Carrara marble, Louis XV style fireplace is topped with a mirror trumeau. A wrought iron balcony is an invitation for a couple to share a meal. This room precedes a small, 10 m² study, enhanced with a balcony featuring balusters. Fine wall pilasters and the gilt bronze ironwork of the French window add a luxurious touch. Then comes a 23 m² master bedroom, with a view of the museum, superb carved fanlights and a bathroom with a red Languedoc marble wash-hand basin.
A little corridor, decorated with stained glass from the Art Nouveau era, leads to two bright, quiet bedrooms, respectively spanning 13 and 22 m². Both have moulded ceilings and oak wood parquet flooring. Their adjoining, modernised bath and shower rooms feature white ceramic tiles, with inlaid black decoration. A dressing room completes the storage cupboards.
An additional maid’s room and a small attic are on the 6th floor.

Our opinion

This building, between the traditional expanse of the Champ-de-Mars gardens and the modernity of the Quai-Branly-Jacques-Chirac Museum, upholds the district’s aesthetic requirement as of the monumental wrought iron gates and the entrance gallery, with its pilasters featuring Tuscan order capitals, its basket-handle arches enhanced with scrolls and its impressive canopies. This flat exudes the same level of elegance, with its reception rooms and spacious bedrooms, all steeped in light, and its walls, with their picture rails, topped with their original intricately moulded ceilings. The marble fireplaces still have their trumeaux. This family flat, near to green open spaces and good schools, would also make an ideal pied-à-terre. Furthermore, its delightful layout could be modified to suit its new owners’ needs.
