Because who wouldn’t covet a pristine pied à terre with unobstructed, 360-degree views of Paris and its monuments?

New on the market — listed at $1,146,000 — is a Parisian Penthouse that was awarded the distinction to be one of the best living spaces in the European Union — and “a complete delight” — by the Royal Institute of British Architects.  It was also short listed for the Stirling Prize for Architecture thanks to its surprisingly serene and unitary design by renowned specialist Mark Guard.

The one-bedroom (with a surprising amount of storage space!) is mere steps from Place Monge and rue Mouffetard, one of Paris’ oldest streets, nestled on the roof of an Art Deco building in the city’s famous Latin Quarter.

The flat opens on a private terrace with a panorama of the City of Lights’ 5th arrondissement.

It’s a calm and contemplative oasis to actually live high above the liveliness of one of the world’s best loved, and most romantic, cities.
