Our partners at Vingt Paris have provided us with our Property of the Month for October, situated in the City of Lights’ Trocadero district in the 16th arrondissement. The city’s western suburb is quietly charming, set just a stone’s throw from the illustrious landmarks of the Champs Élysées and Tour Eiffel, this area has a muted opulence about it. In this fashion capital, property trends come and go, but the Étoile Victor Hugo mansion’s appeal is timeless.
This charming 1850’s property is a rare find in Paris – a proper house with multiple floors and an outdoor terrace. It is found just a short stroll away from the Arc de Triomphe and the chic boutiques of Avenue Victor Hugo. The home, with its sumptuous original features, is beautifully laid out and spans 620 square metres, with the outside area approximately 45 square metres – a true luxury in Paris.
On entering the impressive reception hall you’ll notice there is not a single corridor. The unusually practical layout for a mid-19th century home leads from the lobby straight into the bright living room area with light streaming in from a magnificent glass atrium. The play of light throughout the house is fascinating, creating the ideal setting for displaying elegant works of art.
From the reception hall, a glorious marble staircase winds upwards to the 5 large bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms and pleasingly large windows. The stairway extends downward to the dining hall, kitchen and vast family rooms. The double height ceilings, large windows and swathes of natural light accentuate the feeling of spaciousness in this historic property.
A home to be shared with visitors, another highlight is the beautiful terrace area, perfect for summer dining – the luxurious, newly renovated outdoor space has a feature glass floor. The layout of the house is ideal for hosting guests and parties with rooms that flow seamlessly one to the next and comprise generous floorspace for mixing and mingling.
The property has been truly brought up to date with sophisticated electronics, top-quality security and modern facilities, while being sensitive to its original features. Its location in the seizième, lovingly dubbed a ‘village’ by its inhabitants, is the ideal spot in the sprawling French metropolis. Flecked with galleries, museums and renowned places to drink and dine, you’ll fall in love with the most romantic city in the world’s chicest arrondissement.
Opportunities like this in one of the world’s most exclusive cities don’t come up often. Étoile Victor Hugo could be your dream Parisian pad.
