The Eiffel Tower, the Champs-Élysées, elegant boulevards brimming with cultural institutions—this alluring popular vision of Paris is the background to the Parisian manse seen above, a romantic 7,000-square-foot estate with a picture-perfect garden primed for outdoor entertaining. Located in the city's prestigious 16th arrondissement, home to over a dozen museums and the Roland Garros Stadium (where the French Open tennis tournament is held annually), the $12M residence spreads seven bedrooms over two structures separated by the extensive lawn.
The main house features an airy reception and living room, plus an industrial-style kitchen and dining area under skylights. The polished winding staircase leads to well-lit bedrooms with French doors and terraces. This splendid classical look, however, takes a turn for the funk in the basement, where a gorgeous swimming pool is surrounded by rather shocking graphic, sparkling walls.
