A loft-like two-bedroom apartment of the sort more commonly found in the cast-iron buildings of Lower Manhattan has come up for sale in the stylish 6th Arrondissement of Paris for €8.9 million (US$10.5 million).
“It’s a very New York style of apartment,” said listing agent Alina Grigoras of Juno Fine Properties/Knight Frank, who has the listing with Kelly Killoren Bensimon of the Holly Parker Team at Douglas Elliman. “It’s very open and it really does look like a loft.”
“An open floor plan is very unusual in Paris,” Ms. Bensimon said. “And the bathrooms are large and white, very bright, very American.”
“It’s in one of the best areas of Paris, one of the most expensive areas and an area that is very sought after by both foreigners and Parisians,” Ms. Grigoras said.
“The apartment has amazing views, all over the city,” she said. “You can see the Eiffel Tower, Montmartre Sacré Coeur and other monuments.”
“To not have any buildings in front of you, blocking your view, this is very rare in Paris,” she added.
The apartment, which has been featured in Architectural Digest magazine, has a triple reception room that has been divided into multiple seating and dining areas. It features two balconies and three sets of double doors that can be opened wide to the Luxembourg Gardens.
“You can easily fit a small table and two or three chairs on the balconies,” Ms. Grigoras said.
The kitchen, which has dark cabinetry and a small counter with stools, is “very simple and chic,” Ms. Bensimon said.
The primary bedroom suite, which can be closed off from the main reception area, features a bedroom with a small desk between two large floor-to-ceiling wardrobes, a dressing room and a modern bathroom with two windows, a soaking tub, a large walk-in shower and double sinks. The second bedroom has a shower room and a toilet, and there is also a guest bathroom and a laundry room.
The apartment was recently refurbished and redecorated in a very contemporary style, with interiors by Edward Church and Ana Dantas, Ms. Grigoras said. “To have very modern decorations in an old building is very desirable in Paris.”
The agents declined to identify the seller and it could not be determined through public records.
