If anyone is looking for a home in Paris in the lovely Marais district, then how about Christian Lacroix’s place. For sale for a cool NZ$5million, it has four bedrooms and a mezzanine library – and a courtyard garden. Actually if it came with the furniture, it would rock! I love a house filled with colour – eclectic colour – I can’t go quite that far on my own – even though I want to. To sit and have my croissant and hot chocolate for breakfast (I don’t do coffee) in front of those windows would be very agreeable. Here is the real estate listing should you need to contact the seller (yay for you!). Mr Lacroix will only be 200m down the road.
The estate agent says this about the house “…the tall ceilings, elegant windows with shutters and panelled doors are straight out of an 18th-century French genre painting. A staircase with carved white banisters leads from the drawing room up to the bedrooms, which look out over the rooftops of Le Marais, and there’s an enclosed courtyard garden. How perfect in spring and summer to dine outside, or lie on a chair to work on your suntan.” – I want it even more now – hope it’s got central heating for winter.
