Palatial Elegance

Palatial Elegance on Place des Victories
Paris, France 

On the right bank of the River Seine stands a magnificent 17th-Century home. Overlooking the Place des Victoires—one of the city’s archetypal royal squares, built as a monument to The Sun King, Louis XIV—this historic treasure is the epitome of refined Parisian living. Renowned architect Laurent Bourgois oversaw the remarkable restoration, completed in 2009. Work was done to return every facet of the architecture to its former ­elegance, from exposing the original stone façade, to repairing the mansard roof and stone balustrades. Originally built as a hôtel particulier, a palatial mansion once owned by French nobility, this estate has been perfectly restored and transformed into a superlative array of luxurious private domains. Encompassing 1,000 total square meters, or more than 10,700 square feet, the building features a wealth of grandly proportioned entertaining rooms, sumptuous living areas, and a total of 10 bedrooms and bathrooms. The beautiful main property is a three-story apartment with a master bedroom suite and conservatory.
