It is followed by a dining room which communicates via a very wide opening with a 1.20 m wide terrace, covered by a canopy. It features a grey marble fireplace, flanked by showcase cupboards. A double living room, with a fireplace, faces south, looking out over the street, and east, overlooking the courtyard. All three reception rooms have herringbone pattern, oak wood parquet flooring and skies painted on their ceilings. The walls are enhanced with moulded panelling.

Our opinion

This residence was fully renovated in 2005 even if a coat of paint would not go amiss. Its modern day home comforts include ventilation systems with roof extraction in every bathroom, double glazing throughout, indoor and outdoor shutters at certain windows as well as extensive cupboard space. Living and hosting receptions in such a distinguished, large, luxurious home in the middle of Paris is already quite exceptional. Furthermore, every day new owners will appreciate the ambiance of the nearby Rue-Cler: a village nestling in the solemn beauty of Paris’ 7th arrondissement.
