This three-bedromm, 180-SQ M apartment features a wide and spacious living room

Located on an upper floor of a Haussmann-style stone building, this outstanding apartment offers 180 sq m of living space in perfect condition. Its five huge windows have panoramic views over the Esplanade des Invalides, one of the most upscale places in Paris. "It's a very relax and sunny place, stresses the Propriétés Parisiennes Sotheby's International Realty agency. There's an unbelievable feeling of space with a fantastic view over many Parisian landscapes, including the Sacred Heart." Bathed in light, the reception area includes a living room and a dining room. The master suite, equipped with its private marble bathroom and very functional closets, sits next to another bedroom with a shower room. A kitchen and a laundry round out the amenities. Entirely refurbished and maximised by renowned designer Didier Gomez, the apartment is a gem with Asian-style settings. Says the architect: "It brings maximum serenity. The idea was to avoid running to ostentation. It's not your typical 19th-century apartment with moldings." Pierre Berg, Harrison Ford or French actor Daniel Auteuil are amongst Gomez's clients, to name a few. The sale also features a keeper's room, a cellar and two parking spaces, a rarity in such a sought-after district. Proposed price: 6,500,000 euros
