An Apartment in Saint-Germain






For a slim $2.5 million, this 870 sq. ft. apartment in Saint-Germain could be yours. It has two bedrooms, a bathroom, and gets tons of sunlight from its 13 windows with three different exposures. I love the pale wood floors and the tiny bedroom with ceiling beams. The gray, cream, and lavender color palate is pretty fantastic. One day.

  • Ha! I love it how no furniture and photos can make 870 sq. feet look HUGE! There is so, so much to love about this place. J’adore! But. At the risk of sounding like one of our least favorite House Hunters International characters, that kitchen is going to need a complete overhaul. ;)

    • P.S. Merci bien. I can read much better your text and comments now. XO

      • Thank you for telling me! It all looked fine from my end, so I had no idea! I prefer sans-serif anyway ;)

    • That bedroom is teeny tiny, but I adore it. That little nook above the bed is so smart; I’m telling you, small spaces necessitate smart design choices! When can we move in??

      We watched House Hunters International last night, and a couple was moving to Austria and kept complaining that their king size sleigh bed wouldn’t fit in any of the rooms. I cursed so much at the tv. Oops. xo

  • $2.5MM for 870 sf? That’s chump change – I got this :)

    • I totally needed the laugh your comment gave me, Rooth!

    • Haha, this reminds me of the car insurance commercial with the guy who is so overconfident he tries to tell the man juggling chainsaws to toss him one. “I got this, give me one. I got this.” :) xo

  • My flat is only 740sq ft so this is positivitly palatial. I like the windows. Total rip off though, $2.4m? seriously???

    • Mine is 1700sqft and I would trade it in a heartbeat! I’d take an outdoor space, though, preferably. Maybe a tiny balcony. xo

  • Oooh how gorgeous! I love the exposed beams in the bedroom!

    • I know! That’s very typically Saint-Germain, beams like that. I love them! xo

  • if you, me, and all of your readers split it, we could all share it, right? we could reserve different dates and all have a place to stay when we travel! we could totally make this happen!

    • I LOVE the way you think!! Let’s get on this. If we each ponied up $200k…we’d need 12 of us to make this work. Also $200k, but that’s just details ;) xo

  • Oh my gosh. I love it. The light, the floors, the view. The fact that it’s in Paris!

    • I 10000% agree! It could look a lot worse, and it would still be fantastic because of the location! Haha xo

  • ha! i can spot a fellow lives-in-a-place-with-terrible-natural-light dweller when you say something like “13 windows with three different exposures.” this place is dreamy. the windows, floors, beams. sigh.

    • Ohh yes. From one to another, I commiserate! Let’s just move to Paris, shall we? xo

  • I love it.. I too wish to have a beautiful place tucked in Paris.. hopefully next to a delicious boulangarie. :)

    • Oh gosh. I hope this apartment is on a high floor to work off all the croissants I’d eat every day! xo

  • you rock!

    • Ha, thanks? That’s kind of a non-sequitur. xo

  • SOLD! To me! So Erin, please step aside. I have coffee and croissants to consume and cigarettes to smoke.

    • Hahah, can we share??! Pretty please! xo

  • That living room with windows on three sides is a-m-a-z-i-n-g! Since one of you guys is clearly snapping this place up, thanks to the great price, maybe we can do an apartment swap for vacation sometime. Trading Paris with New Jersey. I can’t see anything wrong with that ;) xo

    • Haha, I think that would be an even trade ;) It’s basically my goal in life to have an apartment in Paris, especially one with this many windows! xo

  • I was going to say it’s unusual to see something so spacious in Paris… but for that price-tag, it makes a little more sense.

    • Haha, it does and it doesn’t. Real estate prices are insane. xo

  • […] apartment in the 16eme arrondissement of Paris is the same price as the one in Saint-Germain I shared earlier this week, at $2.5 million. Location is clearly everything, as this apartment is 1650ft², double the last […]
