Most visits to Paris include a stop in Montmartre in the city’s 18th arrondissement. Montmartre is a hill with the beautiful, white-domed Basilica of the Sacre Coeur. Tracing the city’s glorified history from the end of the 19th century and into the 20th, artists flocked to Montmartre, making it their own. The rents were low, with incredible views over Paris. Most importantly, the artist community was most welcoming.

Nearby landmarks are on full display from the many homes and public gardens that surround them.

Montmartre became the cultural center for Monet, Van Gogh, Toulouse-Lautrec, Picasso, Renoir, Modigliani, Degas, Picasso and Pissarro to name a few. Artists have come to Montmartre for the French spirit of creation and art for decades. Chanteuse Edith Piaf lived not far from the famed “Moulin Rouge.”

Picture windows and skylights capture the views.

Located on one of Montmartre’s oldest streets and in the center of Montmartre village, this historic 3,000-square-foot home is currently listed at (about US $4.44 million).

Montmartre’s artist connection is tied directly to the home, with the current owner being an art dealer. There is even a portion of the property available for commercial use. An art gallery, perhaps.

Looking for prime real estate abroad is a time-honored tradition.

Anna Sherbinina, a broker with France’s Groupe Mercure, says the buyer for the home may be, “someone who truly loves Paris and will enjoy living an authentic French lifestyle in the best area.” The surrounding neighborhood is a wonderland of cultural delights with numerous restaurants, bistros, cafés, and art galleries. Then there is the panoramic view of the Sacré Coeur and Paris.

Owning property in France is allowed for Americans as there are no restrictions on foreigners purchasing homes. Do consider there is quite a paper maze to navigate to complete a transaction there. The amount of time you can spend at your Paris pied-à-terre is dependent on your Visa status.
