amidst the Walter buildings near Porte-de-la-Muette
The Porte-de-la-Muette city gate is in one of the most verdant areas of Paris as it backs on to the Bois-de-Boulogne and is notably near the edge of Ranelagh Gardens.
It is entered via a horseshoe-shaped stairway in a vast reception area, all on a level with the terraces and the garden: a large lounge, a dining room and a small home cinema. The fully fitted kitchen, where it is possible to eat, is near to the dining room and the terrace.
A large hall area provides access to a study, a master suite comprising a bedroom, a dressing room and a bathroom, a second bedroom with a shower room and a fully fitted studio flat with its own entrance.
An entire section, with an 11 m long swimming pool, a hammam and an exercise room, is given over to well-being and physical exercise.
Reached via a lift, the basement comprises three lock-up garages able to take up to six cars.
The mansion house
After the wide wrought iron entrance door, the stone steps of the horseshoe-shaped stairway go down into the vast reception area, around which the rest of the mansion house is laid out. Copious amounts of light flood in through the large, made-to-measure windows and the roof atrium, which reveals the architecture characteristic of the Walter buildings. Extremely elegant, sliding wooden doors open as required, on either side, into the dining room and the home cinema. The floors, as immaculate as the rest, are covered with marble or parquet flooring.
The kitchen, adjoining the dining room, is fully fitted. A central unit can be used for taking breakfast or informal meals. Every section of the reception area communicates with the terraces and the garden.
A large hall area leads, on one side, to a fitness centre and, on the other, to the bedrooms. After a study, the master suite, also overlooking the garden, comprises a large bedroom, a fitted dressing room and a particularly sophisticated bathroom.
The second bedroom has a shower room, whilst the third could be considered as a large studio flat, with a lounge area, a night-time area, a bathroom and above all an independent entrance.
The entire mansion house features the most up-to-date facilities including alarms, home automation, automatic LED lighting and reversible air-conditioning.
The fitness centre
The fitness centre, with its mosaic decor, is on one side of the mansion house. It includes an 11 m long indoor swimming pool, with a Jacuzzi and a counter-current feature, a hammam and a shower area. A few steps lead to a large exercise room.
Jean-Walter’s famous Art Deco style buildings stand guard around this mansion house, surrounded by its terraces and its garden. The layout of the land is such that a horseshoe-shaped, extremely refined stairway, nestling in the almost entirely glazed, entrance rotunda, goes down into the reception area. The eye is taken by so much sober inventiveness before being drawn skywards through the large atrium in the roof. With an indoor swimming pool, a hammam and an exercise room, the quality of life here promises to be as exceptional as the aesthetics of the premises.
