A Classic Apartment in Paris

I’ll let the pictures do the talking (and the selling) for this incroyable apartment, located in the 16eme near Trocadero. The views are, simply, breathtaking, and if there were ever an excuse to get me into the kitchen (a room I generally ignore) it would be the promise of la Tour greeting me from the window. I love everything about this place, from the floors, to the original mouldings, to even the vintage Louis Vuitton suitcase in the office. Even the stairwell is perfection! My first act though, once I’d moved in and claimed the space as my own, would be to move the desk chair to the other side of the desk so it’s facing the window. Who in their right mind wants to sit with their back to Paris? Though now that I think of it, talk about a writing distraction.

Price? An astronomical, never-going-to-be-affordable-except-in-my-wildest-dreams: $9,368,338 / €8.350.000

  • SOLD! What are the closing costs?

    • Oh man, I don’t even know. (Literally, I don’t. I haven’t gotten to that part of the coursework yet!) but assuming the commission is 6%…you’re paying over half a million dollars in commission. Good lord. Totally worth it though, for that view! xo

  • High ceilings! I love Parisian apartments <3 xx

    • Moi aussi! xo

  • Each room looks like it is the size of a small NY apartment. Stunning.

    • Right? The last apartment I lived in before moving in with Jamal was the size of one of those bedrooms, and that’s being really generous! xo

  • Geez this place is huge and I think I’ll install myself permanently in the kitchen. I might even cook there, if I feel so inclined

    • I’m almost certain I wouldn’t be able to afford food if I lived here, but at least I could starve with a beautiful view! ;) xo

  • the kitchen would be my favourite place. I might even sleep there :)

    • That’s more than enough space for me, too! You really cannot beat the view out that kitchen window. xo

  • My God! Adjectives don’t exist to accurately describe the utter beauty of that apartment. The chevron floors, the marble fireplaces, the expansive windows!

    I’d follow your lead and turn the desk around, but would need sunglasses permanently affixed to my face as not to go blind from the beautiful light. As well as a fancy-schmancy evening gown so I can ascend and descend that staircase in style!

    • Oh, an evening gown is an absolute requirement for that grand staircase! Maybe even a Belle Epoque number, something whimsical and vintage. A silk fan, perhaps? But seriously, this apartment is every Parisian-apartment stereotype rolled up into one gorgeous package! xo
