Prime Paris property with a ghoulish view - 18th arrondissement

14 June

You would think overlooking a 200-year old cemetery would be an obstacle when selling a property. Yet, there is one place where it is not; the famous Montmarte Cemetery in Paris’ exclusive 18th Arrondissement.

The resting place for impressionist artist Edgar Degas and writer Alexandre Dumas, this beautiful cemetery in Central Paris is located in Montmarte, the once seedy underbelly of Paris, now the city’s chic bohemian bourgeois centre.

Directly overlooking the cemetery and with views across to the Sacré Coeur, this luxurious and highly rare collection of just 76 new apartments features striking contemporary architecture and is just minutes from the nearest metro, ideal for exploring Paris. The project, called Le Factory, provides apartments which feature generous outside space, a rarity itself for property in Paris.

Home to many of the city’s most famous current film producers, directors and models, property in this district is highly sought after.

Nick Leach, Partner at Athena Advisors:

“There are only a few places in the world where a view this ghoulish can actually be a selling point and this is definitely one. But regardless of the view, real estate in this area of Paris is extremely popular with international buyers, especially those from the UK, US and Russia, mainly due to the rarity of newbuild property in this location.”

Prices for these highly rare and uniquely located studio, one to four bedroom properties start from €440,000.
