Apartment Paris 7th (75)

Like a house in the Bac-Grenelle district in Paris' 7th arrondissement in an 18th century mansion house overlooking a paved, wooded courtyard. Once through the carriage gates on the street, protected by a kind of semi-circular pronaos, visitors find themselves facing a main courtyard where a large camellia standing in a circular parterre takes pride of place. A journey through time begins. The feeling is cinematographic with the facades resembling a film set, the silence improbable, and the total lack of any visual pollution, with low facades like those of houses, appears unreal. This property is to be found on the left-hand side of the main courtyard. Its reception rooms are vast. A studio flat laid out as a little office, with a separate entrance and a shower room, communicates with the lounge. Two other bedrooms, one with a bathroom, the other with a shower room, are separated from the living area by a large entrance hall. A projection room, also used as an office and meeting room, a laundry room and an area illuminated via the roof, followed by a shower room complete another, equally independent area. Recent modernisation and other works carried out throughout this mansion house make it possible to acquire a private carparking space on the basement level, reached via a car lift in the courtyard. A cellar on the same basement level completes this property. The mansion houseThe history of the mansion house begins in 1660 when the count of Vauguyon commissioned its construction with architect Antoine-Le-Paultre, also responsible for the Hôtel-de-Beauvais in the Marais district. Numerous scholars were received here by the abbot of Ligny, bishop of Pamiers. Countess Fontaine lived here up until 1738, then Abbot Desmarets, Colbert's nephew, rented it to Duke Saint-Simon, a famous 18th century memoirist. But it was Jacques-Denis-Antoine, architect of the law courts and Hôtel-des-Monnaies, who redesigned the building in 1771, giving the building, housing this property, its current appearance.The interiorThe entrance, double French windows, is similar to that of a house in a garden. A vast, extremely bright vestibule is covered with cement floor tiles, featuring geometric motifs. On one side, a floor-to-ceiling bookcase unit is set out around a central window. At the other end are a guest toilet and a cloakroom. A lounge, with exposed beams and oak wood parquet flooring laid in a herringbone pattern, is separated from the vestibule by four openings that are reminiscent of an indoor patio. A kitchen, fully fitted with units and a Boffi stainless-steel work surface, has a La-Cornue cooker. It is separated from the lounge by a partition wall. An area, adjoining and communicating with the lounge, is laid out as an independent studio flat, with a kitchen area and a shower room. It is reached via an entrance door on a landing in the communal section. Another bedroom, with its bathroom, is on the entrance level and a polished concrete, quarter-turning, balanced stairway goes up to a third bedroom, with a shower room. Its ceiling, going up to a height of more than 5 m, has made it possible to construct a metal-framed mezzanine which adds a modern touch. A stairway, against the facade wall, runs alongside the entrance hall bookshelf and provides access to the lower level which houses a projection room, also used as an office and meeting room. A laundry room and an area, illuminated via the roof, are enhanced with a shower room with a toilet.
