The Parisian estate of legendary lensman Peter Lindbergh (think Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington and that heady ‘90s supermodel period) is up for grabs.

The enviable 6th arrondissement address (5-7 Rue des Grands-Augustins) presents a grand mansion at the site of what was once the Hôtel d’Hercule – itself known to house a venerable who’s who across many differing eras.

Dating to the 14th century, the hotel and its various buildings housed former French kings, Savoy princes, lords, artists – including Picasso, who lived and worked here from 1936-1955 – among others.

King Charles VIII is said to have paid 10,000 pounds for the property in 1493, and it’s also claimed that a nine-year-old Louis XIII was crowned king within the mansion.

Lindbergh, who died in 2019, had the spacious mansion reflect his artistic career and life. The 496sqm residence covers three expansive floors complete with two kitchens, two cellars, a workshop, two parking spaces and a private 103sqm garden terrace.

The first floor harbours an entry hall opening to a lofty living room complete with fireplace, as well as two bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, mezzanine office and loft.

The second floor boasts a robust interior complete with a bedroom, shower room and aforementioned workshop. The third floor, meanwhile, offers a red bricked industrial kitchen topped with wood beams, sloped picture windows and garden terrace.

The property is currently listed with David Stanley at Emile Garcin Propriétés for approx. $27.3 million.
