This remodeled apartment is located in a charming and well-maintained red brick and stone building on the 3rd floor (4th floor US). There is no elevator in the building, but the staircase is wide and comfortable. You enter the apartment through the small tiled kitchen area that includes a compact refrigerator, washer / dryer unit, sink and two-burner cook-top. There is ample counter-space for a microwave or small oven, and there are cabinets for storage. The kitchen opens onto the main living area, with its hardwood floors, lovely fireplace and, at the moment, a daybed that converts to a queen-size bed with top quality mattresses. Other options might be a Murphy bed with a couch underneath, or a sleeper sofa that can sleep two. The space has other simple but stylish furnishings, including a chair, small glass and wrought iron table, and additional storage boxes. The modern, simple bathroom has a glass-enclosed shower, sink and toilet. The apartment can be sold with the furnishings at additional cost. A storage cellar completes this offering.

As special as the petite studio feels, the real treat awaits through a double French door that leads out to a spacious terrace almost as large as the apartment itself. Mature plants and comfortable seating looking over the building’s courtyard garden, the terrace offers a sense of privacy, calm and shelter. The ensemble is so magical it’s hard to decide whether to sit in the garden and look into the adorable apartment, or sit in the apartment and look out through the open doors to the picturesque garden terrace.
The apartment is ideally located on rue Paul Albert in Montmartre. Just down the street is a small, leafy square, the Place Paul Albert, with several charming cafes. The park surrounding Paris’ iconic Sacre Coeur starts there. Just up the street is the special neighborhood of Lamarck-Caulaincourt, a hilly, picturesque area with a gorgeous tree-lined market street on the rue Caulaincourt. You can explore the winding streets and discover a historic windmill, a city vineyard, and never-ending eclectic shops, with sweeping views of Paris below you. The area easily accessed by several metro lines.

This is a small but well designed space that would make an incredible pied-a-terre from which to explore Paris.

Paris: 18th arrondissement
The famous 18th arrondissement of Paris is best known for Sacré Coeur, the iconic white domed church at the highest point in Paris in Montmartre. At the bottom of the hill, the Moulin Rouge cabaret defines a different spirit and a different history, of this eclectic arrondissement. The streets of Montmartre bustle with sketch artists and tourists, keeping it lively but somewhat redundant unless you know how to get off the beaten path. On the back side of the hill from Sacré Coeur, you will find some of the most charming, tree-lined streets in Paris, and Paris’ best flea markets toward the northern edge of the city. Rue Caulaincourt and Avenue Junot are full of cafés, wonderful bakeries, and one-off shops selling anything from porcelain doll parts to antique wind-up toys. The rare hôtels particuliers sell quickly and often by word-of-mouth when they come on the market.
Average price: €8,298/m2; +3.2% over one year; +50.5% over 10 years
There is quite a range in price among the different neighborhoods of the 18th. Expect to pay Marais-like prices for a large apartment with a great view and a terrace or garden in select areas of Montmartre, but prices fall fast toward the Goutte d’Or neighborhood, where they are among the lowest in Paris. The neighborhood near the Metro Guy Moquet, toward the 17th arrondissement, is coming to life with bakeries, shops and a young cosmopolitan feel – get in while you can at that price. Around Abbesses and rue Lepic the price is quite high and in demand. Average price: 8,298 €/m2, ranging from 5,313 € to 12,134 €/m2, depending on the area.
