I REALLY do want to live there part of the year.
In a perfect world I'd live there for 3 months -3 months in Manhattan - 3 months in my beloved Montreal - and then smack in the middle of winter - I'd spend 3 months somewhere HOT.
Anyway this week it's about Paris apartments of which I completely see myself in any one of them.
There's not a lot of photo's per listing but what there is..........oh gosh it's pure eye candy !
PARIS 8EME ( Arrondissement = District )
Realtor - JOHN TAYLOR PARIS
CHARMING RENOVATED APARTMENT
In a prestigious period building located in the Golden Triangle, rue Chambiges, one-bedroom apartment of 45m² (35,5m² Carrez law) on the 6th floor. The apartment has been recently renovated with the finest materials and the most modern facilities. It comprises: Entrance Living room Open kitchen
Bedroom Shower room WC
There's nothing quite so beautiful architecturally as Paris roof lines - the hotel we used to stay at looked out at the most glorious roof lines - I used to sit at the window for far too long gazing out at them.
You'd never see an apartment being advertised in North America with pics of that LOL !
You can tell by the windows and sloped ceilings that this apartment is on the top floor - tucked under dormers and eaves
Pieds a terre at it's finest !
This next one ?
Good grief - I almost had to take a valium just to look at it - it's that spectacular !
( I'm probably dating myself here - I don't know what people take today - but when I was little all the Mothers were on valium LMHO )
Realtor - AGENCES VARENNE
SEVRES BABYLONE In the heart of Sèvres Babylone with a beautiful view overlooking the Square Bousicault, Le Bon Marché and Le Lutetia hotel. A 192 sqm (2066. 7 square feet) south and west facing apartment in a beautiful 1903 building, it comprises an entrance hall leading to the corner living room, dining room and separate kitchen. Three bedrooms with three shower rooms / bathrooms and separate toilet. A 7 sqm (75. 3 square feet) service room completes this property. Some decoration work needed in this apartment bathed in sunshine and with a good layout. .
Can you see the view from that window - holy vache ! ( vache is french for cow - I'm trying to be worldly here )
It's almost too much to take in don't you think?
Why there would EVER be carpet over these floors I have no idea - but that window in my bedroom
This next one is in the 14 EME
It reads 3 rooms ( avec une Terasse ! )
Realtor - TERRASSES ET JARDINS
It's not a typical Paris apartment in the sense that we North Americans think of them - but the outdoor space is absolutely priceless !
OH. MY. GOSH.
All this and heaven too!
The dinner parties with twinkling lights and good wine - baguette and aged cheese - while looking over the streets of Paris ?
And then there's the one that my friend Patty sent me ( Thanks Patty ) which started me looking in Paris ( yet again ) this week !
PARIS 6 EME
( St. Germain-des-Pres ) one of my favorite districts !
