The glass walls brings maximum light into the recption area

In the heart of Saint Germain-des-Prés, entering this property feels like being in the south of France. The place hides what was once the Balthus workshop in the 1930s. « The spirit of Montmartre is everywhere, says Immo Best International – Xavier Attal. » A vintage staircase leads to the entrance of the house that provides 285 sq m of living space in a quiet environment. The huge living room topped by an Eiffel-like framework features a fireplace and a dining corner next to the fully-equipped kitchen. The kitchen opens onto a terrace. That level also boasts a bedroom with a walk-in closet and a bathroom. Upstairs, three bedrooms have access to an additional terrace away from prying eyes. The Master suite with a wide clearance features a bathroom. « That place combines the spirit of a New York loft with a country house », stresses the agency.
