description

Summary

Significance: Originally a private residence, this structure was designed in the Louis XV manner and, as built was one of the largest and most costly on the avenue. The simple, logical progression of interior spaces and the sequence of their stylistic changes exhibit a quality in both design and craftsmanship. Special attention is drawn to the particularly fine wood carving, plaster and iron work, and the remarkable hardware and lighting fixtures used throughout.
