Dreamy Parisian mansions are not too hard to find, but this four-story gem in the 14th arrondissement, right by the lovely Parc Montsouris, is something special. It was, after all, once home to André Derain, the famous French artist who co-founded the Fauvist movement with Henri Matisse. The highlight of the four-bedroom house designed by architect Marcel Zielinski is the ground level workshop/reception area with 20-foot-high ceilings and a killer mezzanine.

Natural light and outdoor access are aplenty throughout the 5,200-square-foot residence. The ground level TV room and kitchen/dining area lead out to a 540-square-foot backyard garden, meanwhile private terraces can be found off the master suite and on the roof.
