Unique on the Paris market, this elegant apartment with rich history, lies on the sunny south-facing side of one of the most beautiful streets of Western Paris – Avenue Foch. Found on the 2nd and 3rd floors of an elegant turn-of-the-century building with exceptional common areas, this beautiful duplex apartment offers open views over the green Avenue Foch and its remarkable architecture.
The building and the apartment itself was once constructed as the residence for the well-known jewellery dynasty, the Arpels family, and holds many historic treasures, like the wood panelled reception, a beautiful old-fashioned safety deposit box, hidden bars, and original parquet de Versailles. These details have been preserved and still remind us of the rich history of this property.
Stylish bar, conceived in the 1960s by famed spy fiction writer Gérard de Villiers, with spectacular view over the avenue, adds an another layer of history to this elegant apartment, that is perfect for entertaining with its 4 reception rooms. The upper level, currently offering 4 large bedrooms, TV room and a gym, can easily be re-converted for needs of smaller or larger family, allowing endless opportunities for reconfiguration.
Alistair Lockhart, FE Property Director: “Apartments with such rich history rarely come on the market, especially in an address as elegant as Avenue Foch.”
