A town house in Montmartre, The icing on the cake: a private elevator

A town house in Montmartre

A bright living boom on the third floor

This threestory town house on Montmartre’s high grounds has several balconies, bay windows and terraces from which to enjoy a fantastic view of Paris. The previous landlord bought the open outlook so the building opposite cannot be raised. Says Propriétés Parisiennes/Sotheby’s Intl Realty: “This property has a contemporary style with beautiful volumes. Though some town houses are still up for sale in Montmartre, few benefit from such an open outlook.” 650 sq m of living space are spread over 5 levels. In the basement, a splendid endless pool with stone walls and soft lights, a hammam and a shower provide a relaxing space worthy of the best spas. A screening room, and a three-car parking occupy the ground floor. One floor up, the children’s area includes two bedrooms, a playroom and a shower. The master suite, which opens on the terrace, has a dressing and a white marble bathroom. Up on the third floor a vast living room with a glass wall and a high clearance leads to a state-ofthe- art open kitchen. White walls and a streamlined architecture give this very quiet town house a spacious yet very warm touch, epitomised by the hardwood flooring and fireplace in the living room. In excellent condition, it is equipped with an elevator and was recently done up. A secondary basement, housing a boiler room and a laundry room, could be converted into a recording studio. Listing price: 9 900 000 €
