The styles you couldn’t get enough of in 2023.

The 6th Arrondissement has a prestigious pedigree, and the sort of architecture, cultural sites, and strollable neighborhoods that Paris is famous for: Haussmannian, the Odeon, and Saint-Germain des Prés, for example. This townhouse feels like the perfect microcosm of all of that, with its elegant late-19th-century design, leafy garden, and location on Rue du Cherche-Midi, which traces an ancient Roman route.

The home features four bedrooms, including two upstairs suites with their own bathrooms. But you might prefer the bedroom on the lower level: It opens onto the 2,637-square-foot garden where tall leafy trees and potted plants hug the stone-tile terrace.

In fact, the entire first floor of the home is truly where it's at. The triple living-reception room features a sweeping staircase and charming design flourishes, from the molding to the fireplace to the Fleur-de-lis tile floors. Naturally, those spaces also have exquisite French balconies and doors that open onto the garden.

The kitchen looks sleek and professional, with its brushed stainless steel appliances and center island. You can also stash your vintage bottles in the wine cellar, and invite your friends to stay in the separate two-bedroom apartment on the property, complete with its own parking space. There's a reason why this one costs nearly $19 million.
