I haven’t been in the design and art gallery area of the 7th arr. in a long time. Walking through the area again, I realized there is an abundance of beautiful doors within a radius of a few blocks. I was on the rue de Beaune, in the same area, when I discovered my first Door of the Month in February, 2008, so seeing these other doors brought back memories of that important day.
I researched the history of this building and here’s what I found. It was built in 1865, most likely as a hotel particulier, with three stories. It is now 11 apartments, averaging 189 square meters(about 2,000 sq. feet) and the average price is 14,500€ per meter, so the price of living in this baby would cost a pretty penny, about 2,740,000€.
