A dream architect house

Large floors and split-levels in this loft-like property

In the heart of Paris' 16th district, near the Bois de Boulogne, Villa Montmorency is an exclusive private and gated community featuring outstanding homes owned by businessmen and celebrities. In the heart of this peace haven stands a sumptuous architect house inspired by Le Corbusier. The three-storey property provides 430 sq m of living space. "Unlike the other houses of the area, which are rather narrow with a wide clearance, this one has large floors and split levels," stresses Emile Garcin Paris Rive Droite. The ground floor houses a huge entrance leading to a pair of children rooms, a laundry room and two bathrooms. A three-space garage and an additional separate tworoom apartment round up the level. The loft-style reception area is located upstairs with huge bay windows opening on the garden. An amazing dining room under a glass roof, a fully-equipped kitchen, a bedroom, a fireplace, a TV corner, a bathroom and a mezzanine office are also featured on that bright level. The deluxe bedroom, with a dressing, is located on the upper floor. The bathroom connects to a 33 sq-m terrace. Other amenities include various gardens (lawn, bamboo alleys…) and a small workshop which can easily be turned into a separate studio apartment.

Proposed price: 8,400,000 euros
