A 2-storey, artist’s studio, with three bedrooms,
between Trocadero Gardens and Passy
Paris, PARIS paris 75016 FR


This flat is in a quiet, residential street in Paris’ 16th arrondissement, not far from the Seine embankments. Rue-de-Passy, with its many shops, is just a few minutes’ walk away, as are Trocadero Gardens. The district has a particularly good public transport network: underground line 6 (Passy), RER train line C (Champs-de-Mars, Tour-Eiffel) and bus route no. 72. There are also several well-known schools in the area: Saint-Louis-de-Gonzague, Saint-Jean-de-Passy, La-Tour, Janson-de-Sailly and the International School of Paris.


The facade of the 1913 building is composed of old artist-studio workshops overlooking the quiet, no-through road. This flat spans a total floor surface area of 115 m² over two levels. The first level can be reached via a lift from the third floor. The entrance door provides access, on one side, to a lounge, the high atrium windows of which go up to a height of almost 5.50 m and look out over Trocadero Gardens; on the other side, in the more traditional section of the building which overlooks a bright inner courtyard, are a kitchen currently open on to the entrance hall and a lounge, reached via double, glazed doors. A rear hall area leads to a separate toilet as well as a shower room and a first bedroom, both of which overlook the courtyard. A wooden stairway, facing the entrance door and looking down on to the lounge, goes upstairs. This upper level comprises a second bedroom which is extended by a mezzanine, closed by a wide, glazed door overlooking the old workshop, as well as a bathroom, with a toilet, and a third bedroom, looking out over the courtyard.
A cellar is sold with the flat.

The flat

Double entrance doors provide access to a first hall area, fitted with cupboards and hanging space, which leads, right, to the old artist-studio workshop. Its tall, north-east facing atrium windows provide a view stretching into the distance over the trees in Trocadero Gardens, via a perpendicular street just opposite the building. The light-coloured parquet flooring helps to fill the vast space with a sparkling whiteness.
On the left-hand side, behind double, glazed doors which let in copious amounts of light, is a kitchen with a window overlooking the inner courtyard. A corridor leads from there to a toilet, a shower room and a first bedroom where a corner fireplace, topped with a trumeau mirror, is enhanced with ecru-coloured ceramic tiles featuring floral motifs.
An interior wooden stairway, overlooking the lounge, goes up from the entrance hall to a corridor providing access, left, to a second, double-aspect bedroom. A window overlooking the courtyard and a hanging space open on a mezzanine via glazed doors, looking out over the old workshop and its atrium windows. A grey marble fireplace, topped with a trumeau mirror, adorns the wall on the right-hand side on entering this room. A bathroom, with a window overlooking the courtyard, separates it from a third bedroom which also looks out over the courtyard. It comprises a fireplace identical to that in the bedroom on the first level.
The floors in the hall area and the bedrooms are laid with strip pattern parquet flooring.

Our opinion

The atmosphere in this quiet street, in Paris’ 16th arrondissement which borders the river Seine and Trocadero Gardens, is peaceful and unpretentious just like the premises which formerly housed a convent and, up until the end of the 19th century, old farm buildings. This is no doubt why these artist-studio workshops were built here at the beginning of the 1900’s for artists seeking serenity but wishing to stay near to a social life and their patrons. Tall atrium windows let copious amounts of filtered light into this flat, the unusual layout of which will delight artistic and unconventional spirits. It will also appeal to a family courtesy of the proximity of all local amenities and more besides. Children will be able to play in the gardens, the foliage of which can be glimpsed from the windows overlooking the street. Some works are needed to give the original splendour back to this property which still has features from the Decorative Art period.
