The emblematic property of a Saint-Germain-des-Prés of bygone times



The union of two icons recently deceased, legendary fashion photographer and film maker Peter Lindbergh (1944 – 2019) and internationally acclaimed interior designer Andrée Putman (1925 – 2013), this unique, 497 sq.m. (5,350 sq.ft.), 3-level residence with elevator and a 102 sq.m. garden terrace, of incomparable beauty and flooded with natural light on all sides, combines the grandeur of a 17th-century landmark mansion in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés and the modernist minimalism of a brick and steel, late 19th-century industrial building.

Rue des Grands-Augustins

On the piano nobile of a former grand mansion known by the name of the Conflans-Carignan palace, only a few yards from the river, hidden away between two large courts and protected from prying eyes, accessed via a grand staircase and an elevator to be installed shortly at the owner's expense, a 341 sq.m. (3,670 sq.ft.) apartment with approximately 4m-high ceilings and 4 orientations, featuring:

Entry hall with window and ceiling painted by Pierre Alechinsky

Grand, through-light living room facing east and west, with 3 tall windows and a large fireplace

Magnificent kitchen / dining room with pantry and 2 tall, south-facing windows
