The former Paris home of Impressionist master Pierre-Auguste Renoir finally has an online listing, after coming to market last week. The 3,000-square-foot Château des Brouillards, which lies in the still-artsy neighborhood of Montmartre, was renovated by the current owners at a cost of more than $3M, resulting in some modern features mixed in with all that history. In the basement, instead of dusty wine bottles, there's a glittering indoor pool, but history has not been completely forgotten. The iron bannister was restored and the lush, nearly overgrown, garden was kept intact, as were the unobstructed views of the Sacré Coeur. The property now includes four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and a modern kitchen, and is listed for $9.9M.
