Hot New Homes: Paris' Most Breathtaking Properties

In a city praised for its style, the multi-million dollar real estate listings are just as show-stopping as the haute couture. And these homes, with decidedly modern takes on Old World aesthetics, are the sleekest of the set. You wish you lived here.

Location: Industrial home in Montparnasse
Price: $7,731,000
Size: 5,166 square feet
Key selling points: The former home of painter André Derain; masterfully mixes honey-hued wood, wrought iron, and glass to create a cool loft-like space near Paris' Parc Montsouris. The double-height ceilings, open floor plan of the gallery-like great room, and private courtyard garden make it perfect for big projects and big parties alike.

Location: Historic townhouse in St. Germain Des Prés
Price: $32,000,000+
Size: 7,855 square feet
Key selling points: The same architect responsible for renovating France's Republic palaces brought this townhouse back to life, adding unexpected new touches like multiple glass panels that open out onto the patio from the first floor and a solid metal banister while preserving the dignified exterior and original wood flooring.

Location: Zen mansion in the 11th arrondissement
Price: $20,000,000+
Size: 11,819 square feet
Key selling points: This Zen complex created by the Japanese design house Iwaki blurs the line between indoor and outdoor living with three levels of glass-roofed living space. It's a far cry from the city center's cramped quarters, with an annexed studio, sauna, jacuzzi, sports room, tea room, staff living quarters, a three-car garage, four terraces, and two gardens.

Location: Hotel-turned-private residence in Saint Germain des Prés
Price: $30,000,000+
Size: 18,290 square feet
Key selling points: Anyone with a big enough bank balance can buy a mansion—a hotel, on the other hand, is a rarer find. But it doesn't hurt that the former Hotel de Chambon has looks on lock, too: super-sized skylights, a bedroom with wall-to-wall glass doors, lace-like metal banisters and ceiling accents, and white marble and hardwood flooring.
