mansion houses for sale - paris 16th district

An elegant mansion house
in Paris’ 16th arrondissement
Paris, PARIS paris 75016 FR


Nestling in one of those private, chic and much sought-after streets for which Paris’ 16th arrondissement is renowned, near to Place-Victor-Hugo, its luxury shops and restaurants.
In the heart of these “superb districts” rich in prestigious buildings and near to the business districts despite being perfectly peaceful. The arrondissement includes some of Paris’ most well-known secondary schools and sixth form colleges such as Janson-de-Sailly and the Institut-de-La-Tour.


This elegant mansion house, built at the beginning of the 20th century in a rich, eclectic style, was transformed during the 1930’s by set designer Groussard. Neglected for decades, the building was bought a few years ago by its current owner who, after carrying out extensive works and radical transformations, has restored its glory of yesteryear.

The mansion house

Garden level
Built around two inner courtyards, on to which it opens via large, sliding picture windows, the garden level comprises a luxurious 2-room flat decorated using light colours and top quality materials.
Wide slatted, light-coloured oak wood parquet flooring is inset in the stone floors. The doors and panelling are made of light-coloured oak wood, not only in the lounge-dining room but also in the bedroom which features a fun cosy corner and large cupboards. The fully-fitted kitchen has Corian work surfaces, white cupboards and Gaggenau electric household appliances. The buffet is enhanced with pictures of clouds taken by a contemporary photographer.
The stunningly white shower room elegantly combines white earthenware, Corian and large brown, stoneware floor tiles. This floor also includes a guest toilet with a wash-hand basin.
The machine and boiler rooms, quite separate from the flat, are set out on the road side.

Ground floor
The entire ground floor is currently given over to offices which are elegantly and soberly laid out. Light-coloured oak wood dominates, notably via the wide slatted, oak wood parquet flooring and the numerous cupboards. It comprises separate toilets for men and women.
The stairway and the lift both lead up to the first floor which comprises the bedrooms.

First floor
This floor features darker, more intimate tones: brown-tinted floors, dark-coloured oak wood doors.
The master bedroom still has both its quarter-circle curved Art-Deco style fireplaces, set on either side of the door leading to the bathroom. The one on the left-hand side, topped with a glass showcase, is actually used for storing wood, whilst the one on the right is in good working order.
It is illuminated via a large window looking outside and, behind the bedside table, features a large dressing room fitted with drawers, illuminated hanging spaces and a designer radiator evoking the frame of a monumental mirror.
The main bathroom, featuring dark-wood parquet flooring like the rest of the floor, is adorned with a large, central carpet of small, vividly coloured tiles, on which two, made-to-measure, Corian wash-hand basins stand back-to-back. In addition to the vast glazed shower, it also comprises a separate toilet, cupboards and a made-to-measure heated towel rail.

A glass, Art-Deco dressing-table was preserved and restored at the request of the Commission-du-Vieux-Paris, as were the handles of the doors in the same style.
Two other, soberly luxurious bedrooms look out the back of the mansion house. Their bathroom is adorned with mosaic tiled stripes set on a white background.
The landing provides access to a separate toilet with a wash-hand basin.

Second floor
The top floor acts as the reception area. Steeped, like the entire mansion house, in a peaceful atmosphere, it features lighter, greyer tones than the floor below. It comprises a lounge overlooking the private street via two large windows. The room is adorned with two recesses set into the walls forming a quarter-circle curve on each side of the step leading to the small lounge-library. The recess on the right-hand side is a fireplace, whilst that on the left is used for storing wood.
The adjoining dining room can seat twelve guests.
The kitchen is fitted with state-of-the art materials, Gaggenau electric household appliances and work surfaces made from heavy Italian marble soberly spalled along the edges.
A completely unoverlooked terrace, facing the kitchen, can be used as an open-air dining room.
A small hall area leads from the library to a guest toilet and a laundry room.
The large, completely unoverlooked roof terrace with its wooden flooring can be used to take advantage of the Parisian sky as of the first rays of the sun. With its designer furniture, it features a summer kitchen and a dumb-waiter linked to the main kitchen. The planters set around its edges have an automatic watering system.

Our opinion

It is rare to find so many assets and features united in a single property. The luxurious and refined decor of the curves and spaces contained in this mansion house almost appear to be hand-finished, giving it an unusual and highly “haute couture” touch. This effect is accentuated by miscellaneous terraces and small, landscaped courtyards, that appear to be but luxurious trestle tables blooming in the sunlight from Paris’ most chic sky.
A dream location, in the peace and quiet, with three car parking spaces outside the residence, making it possible to park in front of the entrance door. The district also has an extensive public transport network, including the Victor-Hugo underground station (line 2).
