Situated in the highly sought after district of Saint Philippe du Roule, between rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré and the Avenue des Champs Elysées. The elegant façade is referred to in the Encyclopedia of Architecture. This beautiful traditional stone building was renovated in 1880 by Paul Sédille, best known for his design and reconstruction in the same year of the iconic department store Magasins du Printemps. Paul Sédille was an advocate of highly-coloured polychrome architecture.
At the Universal Expositions of 1878 and 1889 in Paris he exhibited demonstration pieces of his approach of integrating structural design with colourful terra cotta tilework into the vocabulary of classical, beaux-arts architectural forms.
The original stained glass windows on landings of the wide wooden stair case that welcome you, reflect his attention to detail and the importance that he paid to light and colour.

The apartment is well adapted to a contemporary life style exploiting the best potential of its spaces combining them with the greater luminosity enabled by the high ceilings.
It has a large wine cellar and there is an adjoining 45m² apartment available for rent at 1,500 euros p.m.

The Tax fonciere is 1185 euros p.a. and the quarterly service charges are 938 euros (covering heating, hot water & the caretaker fees), there is a service stair case but no elevator. There are 36 lots in this co-owned residence, and there are no major planned works.
