In the luxurious sector of Paris’ 16th arrondissement, very near to Avenue-Henri-Martin. With not far, the station on the so-called “ligne petite ceinture” (inner ring road line) opened for Paris’ 1878 Universal Exhibition, which currently has links to the RER train line C and which for at least seventy years has housed the mythical Le-Flandrin brasserie-terrace, with its local and international customers. Just 500 m from Janson-de-Sailly secondary school. It has a good public transport network and is also near to local shops.


In a dressed stone mansion house, constructed in 1900, protected by an interphone security system. A glazed door, protected and decorated with wrought iron, opens into the entrance hall of this exceptional property, the renovation works of which were supervised by an expert in the art of Feng-Shui. A marble stairway provides access to the first level. A private lift also provides access to the floors. Light, symbolised by gold, silver and crystal, is omnipresent throughout the house.
The first level is taken up by reception rooms, extended by a wooded terrace, spanning a floor surface area of approx. 30 m², and by a conservatory. The ceilings go up to a height of five metres, excluding that of the outstanding entrance gallery which culminates at a height ten metres. Said gallery houses the main stairway.
This leads to the second level which comprises five bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. Two of the bedrooms are extended by a terrace. A stairway leads to the laundry room, located on the ground floor and featuring a back door. There are also a 20 m² studio flat and two car parking spaces in the building.

The flat

First level
The reception rooms on the first level are set out around an impressive entrance gallery with stone walls and a marble floor. The striking doors surrounding it are all covered in silver leaf. The double lounge leads all on a level on to a south-facing, wooded terrace, spanning a floor surface area of 30 m². The wall moulding and panelling are enhanced by water gilding. The ceilings are covered with gold leaf, matt and brilliant patinas produce the sought-after effect of clouds. Paintings representing putti adorn the areas above the doors. The water gilding was carried out by master craftsmen in keeping with traditional methods. The elegant mirrors reflect this warm light even further. A 19th century fireplace features a red veined marble mantelpiece, enhanced with a trumeau. The parquet flooring is laid in a herringbone pattern. This lounge provides direct access to a dining room, the walls of which are entirely panelled with oak wood, embellished with small alcoves. The parquet flooring is laid in a herringbone pattern. This room opens on to a long conservatory, topped with an atrium roof. A spacious, built-in kitchen is fitted with top of the range household appliances, including a wine cellar.

Second level
In a spacious entrance vestibule, centrally hung with an impressive, crystal chandelier, the large, majestic, double flight, marble stairway leads up to a gallery that looks down on this area and provides access to five bedrooms.
