Noble 19th century architecture, this incredible private mansion houses a 235 m2 setting on the ground floor and its south-facing interior courtyards of 60 and 45 m2 alongside calm and nature, in a thoroughfare in the Préfecture district where historic buildings are discreetly lined up.

This reception apartment offers great potential and many development possibilities. Preserved by its owners, the place has kept its bourgeois attributes such as its herringbone parquet floor, its moldings and woodwork, its period tiles and its marble fireplaces. The apartment is revealed by crossing a first living room-library embellished with French ceilings. In a row, a second living room dressed in a navy signed, vestige of a rich shipowner, overlooks a first interior courtyard with luxuriant vegetation. In the extension, the reception rooms open to the South: the living room, which looks like a hunting lounge, stands next to the vast family kitchen and its pantry. They open onto a preserved courtyard with an old-fashioned atmosphere. A parental bedroom and its bathroom come to close this part. From the courtyard, there is access to the back house that once housed the servants of the private mansion. This house with drawn arches and adorned with gargoyles has three bedrooms and a bathroom. A spiral staircase gives access to the furnished roof terrace. Finally, a little lower down, served by a stone staircase covered with plants, a workshop-glass roof space can be discovered, contributing to the undeniable charm of the place. This part, treated as a winter garden, houses the original stone washhouse, and at the back an office. A garage completes this charming property.

An unexpected living space straddling time.
