There are virtually no fractional ownership shares left on the Paris market, but here’s a highly unusual opportunity to own 50% of a studio apartment in the heart of charming Montmartre!

Featuring…”La Comtesse” (The Countess)

50% Share of a Studio Apartment on rue Yvonne le Tac, Paris, 18th Arrondissement

Just steps from the famous Abbesses Métro station which is highly desirable to tourists because of it’s close proximity to Sacré-Coeur and easy access to the heart of the Montmartre quartier and all its amenities, this charming studio apartment is located just up a short flight of stairs on the courtyard of a 19th-century building.

The Abbesses Métro is less than a one-minute walk from the front door of the apartment. From here you can connect to anywhere in Paris and beyond. A few steps further is the 95 bus which stops at Opéra, the Grands Magazins (Printemps, Galleries Lafayette and others). It travels on to Le Louvre, the Quartier Latin, Gare Montparnasse and the famous flea market at Porte de Vanves. Gare du Nord is just a 10-minute walk from the apartment and from there you can hop the high-speed trains to Brussels, Amsterdam and London as well as the RER trains to Charles de Gaulle and Orly Airports!

Here you will find some of the city’s most authentic and desirable cafés, restaurants, boutiques, galleries, wine and cheese merchants. Just tucked-in adjacent to the carousel at the Abbesses Métro station is the Square Jehan Rictus – a tiny park with a 430 square foot mural covered with the words “I love you” (Le Mur des Je t’Aime) in 311 languages…a befitting tribute to l’amour à Paris.

At 21.2 square meters (226 square feet), the apartment is designed brilliantly to house a small separate kitchen, bathroom and toilet. The main room has two large windows with views overlooking the courtyard and the apartment building that faces the street. The exposure is south-facing. The original wood beams are exposed giving it lots of charm and it was decorated by a professional interior designer and was featured in “Country Living” Magazine.

The kitchen is equipped with a small refrigerator and a two-burner stove. The property includes a “cave” and a “débarras” (storage closet) just outside of the entrance in the hall.

About the immediate vicinity…

Montmartre is the last remaining village in Paris. It is the highest point, crowned by the majestic Sacré-Coeur Basilica, which looks grandly out over the entire City of Light. Behind the church and clinging to the hillside below, the narrow, winding cobblestone streets and alleyways seem almost to have survived the relentless march of time. It is easy to understand how this magical setting served as an inspiration to the many famous artists, poets and writers of the past as well as the present.

With a 50% share, you can choose your times of usage with the other owners. There are currently no ‘by-laws’ set in place and therefore you have the privilege of writing them yourselves!

• South Facing
• Entry Closet
• First Floor Entry
• Separate kitchen equipped double sink, cupboards, dishes, cooking utensils, refrigerator, two-burner stove, hood fan
