Whether it’s midcentury estates or French chateaus, we love a good fixer upper. This is another good one, first spotted by one Messy Nessy Chic. Located in Paris’s 19th arrondissement—home to a number of music institutions forming Cité de la Musique (including the Jean Nouvel-designed Philharmonie de Paris)—this three-bedroom apartment takes over one floor of the house, which looks like a grand creation from the Belle Epoque era.
Covering about 1,550 square feet, the flat is chock full of drool-worthy details. Start by studying the floors. Tile! Herringbone! Parquet! All ready to be restored to their former glory. This is not to mention the fireplace, intricate moulding throughout, and many a atmospheric French door. The property also has access to the terrace and gardens on site. The place is asking for €880,000 (about $941,512), which is not too bad considering a starter apartment in Paris offering 860 square feet for $730,000 is a considered a “very attractive deal.”
