A classic, sophisticated design with a hint of glamour is probably what you imagine when you picture a Parisian home. Located in the 5th arrondissement, this Paris house is not just any house: it is a beautiful mansion, amazingly designed and guess what? It is for sale! Wether you’re looking into buying a house in the City of Light or just getting design inspiration, be ready to scroll down and be amazed.
Officially listed as a historic monument, this school turned mansion was built in 1718 in the Pantheon historic quarter. The building maintains its original freestone façade and features 6 bedrooms, 6 baths and a lush garden.
For the most part, the color palette is tame, featuring subdued neutrals like gray and pale yellow against a white and cream backdrop — even a pop of blue in the chairs somehow feels subtle and refined.
The original stone staircase with intricate iron rails is absolutely stunning, and a true icon for every Paris house. On the other hand, each bedroom features an en suite bath.
The double bath off the master suite includes a freestanding tub and wood flooring. On the uppermost floor is a private apartment, with large glass windows letting the natural light in.
This Parisian home clearly embraces its roots with gorgeous crown molding, delicate chandeliers and beautiful antique furnishings. In fact, the French have never been accused of sacrificing style for anything. While modern Paris may have moved away from powdered wigs and bustles, there is still a certain stylistic effort in everything they do.
