A hôtel particulier on a Sunday

Posted on Sun, 29 Aug 2021 by KiM

Why stick to châteaus when there are also stunning hôtel particulier properties too! This 8 bedroom jaw-dropping beauty is for sale here. Oh the things I could do with this!!! In the heart of the Quartier Latin, Paris 5th, a few meters from Place Maubert. This exceptional house with charm and historical character of approximately 650 sq.m, built in 1610 around a patio under a glass ceiling (retractable), has a terrace with a breathtaking view of Notre Dame de Paris, a swimming pool and a gym with sauna, a wine cellar. It consists of four floors and a vaulted stone basement: a music room, a reception room, a library lounge with fireplace opening onto the terrace, a large dining kitchen, a service studio, eight bedrooms, seven bathrooms, several dressing rooms and mezzanines. The six levels are served by an elevator.

I may have been watching too many YouTube videos lately about French châteaus as I also found myself thinking this could be a fun Sunday theme. I spotted this gem on Sotheby’s. This medieval fortress is located on a mountain in Saint-Pierre-d’Albigny (south eastern France) with breathtaking views. It is 560m², has 14 bedrooms and includes stables, multiple towers and a chapel. This has sooooo much potential! What a dream!

Round the back of the shops

“This award-winning house was designed by architect Hugh Strange in 2010. It is cleverly tucked behind a line of Victorian buildings on Evelyn Street in Deptford; it unfolds over the ground floor of the original period terrace, opening onto a private courtyard garden and the new single-storey house beyond. A contemporary palette of materials including concrete, glass, cross-laminated timber and hurricane-felled Nicaraguan hardwood has been used to dramatic effect throughout.”

A zen haven opens off a common foyer of a Victorian era terrace. Bespoke joinery, windows opening to courtyards allowing light to flood in, wood lined walls and ceilings all define this ground floor flat in London’s Deptford. This simple oasis was for sale through The Modern House but saddly it’s under contract. Doesn’t stop us from popping these ideas away in our inspiration files.

From its elegant orangery style window and high ceilings in the living room to the cosy kitchen, from the verdant garden back through to the sweet and most likely hard-working scullery come laundry this London maisonette in Brondesbury Road has stolen my heart. Now if only I could move to London during the pandemic (my whole country is isolating from the world) I’d make it mine. For sale via UK historical home estate agency and sister agency to The Modern House Inigo.
