Paris Property – How to live stress-free by the Champs-Elysées in a 19th century Haussmannian home
If you bought a property in the 8th arrondissement of Paris, you would become the proud owner of one of the most coveted addresses in the world. This is where to buy for high fashion and the high life. Luxury shopping is on your doorstep, particularly in places such as Avenue Montaigne – an haute couture paradise with stores such as Chanel and Dior – which makes up part of the golden triangle with Georges V and the Champs-Elysées.
In terms of beautiful landmarks and enthralling places to go, the 8th arrondissement in Paris offers some truly upscale delights. In the north is the splendid Parc Monceau, which was developed by Louis XVI’s cousin Phillippe d’Orléans and designed by Carmontelle. It was completed in 1779, and the painter immortalised the historic handover of keys in a painting.
For tourists and locals alike, visiting the Petit Palais art museum – home to Musée des Beaux-Arts – is always a treat. The inner courtyard with its pink cherry blossom and exotic foliage is the perfect place to meet friends and enjoy a coffee – visitors may not even get as far as the art gallery the garden terrace is so magnificent.
Accessibility is another major reason that Parisians choose to live in the 8th. It boasts the second largest train station in Europe (Paris-Saint-Lazare) and is one of the best-served areas in London for public transport – it has nine metro lines. If you are interested in luxurious Paris property, the 8th is somewhere to seriously consider
Around 40,000 people live in the 8th and more than 10% of all Parisian jobs can be found in this area because, along with La Défense, it is one of the main economic hubs in Paris. There are countless luxury properties and government buildings in the 8th. The most important of them all, the Élysée Palace, is here, as well as the interior and justice ministries and the embassies of seven of the G20 countries.
