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.

Price: $32,000,000+

Size: 7,855 square feet

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.
