Location: Paris, France
Price: $10,800,000

Well, La-di-da! Airy Parisian abodes are a dime a dozen, but few are as heavenly as this one, located only a stone's throw from the Luxembourg Gardens. Don't be fooled by an initially somber 18th-century façade! Inside, you'll find all the prerequisites of a dream home—high ceilings, pedigreed moldings, a rosé Eames chair, parquet floors, an industrial corkscrew staircase, Mies van der Rohe's iconic daybed, and—do our eyes deceive us?—a Felix Gonzalez Torres light fixture dangling from the stairwell. Clocking in at a bountiful 5,400 square-feet, the light-filled residence boasts a cloakroom, six bedrooms, a music room, both a petit and grand living room, a wine cellar, and a cinema.

The abode's verdant courtyard is surrounded by a brawny stonewall that will keep out the plebeians. (But, just in case, keep a few slices of cake at the ready.) Well, what are you waiting for? Take a peek inside, s'il vous plaît.
