This mansion, dubbed Palais Montmorency, is located  on Paris’ famed Avenue Foch and comes with a whopping €100,000,000  ( $136,000,000 ) price tag, which makes it the 2nd most expensive residential proprety for sale in the world right after Candy Speling’s $150 million behemoth. It was built in 1912 for the Duchess of Montmorency. After her death in 1927 the house was acquired by famous art collector Antenor Patino. It boasts 31,000 square feet of living space with 12 bedrooms, 12 bathrooms and 4 staff/guest apartments.

    Hehe, I live in Paris! 🙂
    And Avenue Foch is indeed notoriously known for being filled with crazy houses! But I didn’t know we could find stuff like that, though…. woah.

    Stunning. Outside is not the greatest of Parisian mansions, but very nice nonetheless. I don’t know about the price. I can see it going for half, but certainly not 100 million euros. Stunning interior details as well.

    Personally, I wouldn’t want something so big in Paris. A duplex apartment of no more than 7K-8K square feet would be more than sufficient. It is a gorgeous street though. Fun “driving” down it with StreetView (The mansion is located on the north section of Avenue Foch and Rue Le Sueur).

      A thing I noticed though that is a pity – all the mansions have a black grate in front of them. Was this installed for security reasons or something else? Either way, I think it is unfortunate that the front entrances are only visible from the 2nd floor up when walking…

    It’s beautiful no doubt but how anyone could think its worth 100 million euros is beyond me. It’s a flippin townhouse! Personally, I don’t see how it could sell for anywhere near that, in fact I think it’s worth only half that (if that), but I’ve been wrong before. You never know what some rich foreign guy does with his money.
    Btw, the nicest house in Paris (as far as I know) is located right next to the Rodin Museum. It’s a small palace and I think it’s now owned by the Sultan of Brunei. It used to be owned by Ogden Mills, the American financier. The Mills were at one point the richest family in all of California. If that home ever comes on the market I expect it to go for a hell of a lot

    It’s definitely grand, and the history is fascinating. The foyer alone would make it a great house for entertaining. I wish we could see more of the interior. I’m guessing there are some cozier rooms but it’s bigger than I would want. If I had the money I wouldn’t pay that much for it. However, I wouldn’t be surprised if someone did pay at or near the asking price for this house. There are only so many massive houses in Paris and some people are still paying insane prices for houses.
