One of the most prestigious locations in Paris, and named after World War One hero Marechal Ferdinand Foch, the 16th arrondissement’s Avenue Foch offers 1300 metres of luxurious residential possibilities.
Avenue Foch is one of the twelve avenues leading from the Place de l’Étoile, it is lined with lush green verges and elegant chestnut trees, and is an extravagant 120 metres wide.
“This is a street made for millionaires,” says Hervé Levy, Manager of Home Hunts’ Paris office. “It is highly secure and home to upmarket organisations such as the Yacht Club de France and many grand palaces, such as those of the Onassis and Rothschild families.”
Running from the Arc de Triomphe to the Bois de Boulougne, Avenue Foch was part of Napoleon III’s plans to reconstruct Paris, which were delivered by Baron Haussmann. The street was originally to be called the Avenue de l’Impératrice, the Avenue of the Empress, for Napoleon III’s wife. However, thinking it was not wide enough for a lady of her status she insisted on new, wider boundaries – and her wishes were granted.
Home to many Haussmannian buildings, Avenue Foch is work of art in itself, perhaps one of the reasons why creatives such as artist Claude Debussy and Marcel Pagnol, one of France’s greatest 20th century writers, chose to live here.
“Close to the Champs Elysées, so offering superb shopping within walking distance, as well as bakeries, restaurants, cafes and medical services, this location easily meets the great expectations of high net worth individuals looking to invest in a Parisian property,” says Hervé.
