La Villette | €1.39 million ($1.5 million)

A two-bedroom, two-bath industrial loft entered through a private courtyard near the Canal de l’Ourcq

This two-bedroom loft is in the vibrant La Villette district, formerly a neighborhood of slaughterhouses in northeast Paris that has been undergoing redevelopment since the 1980s. The 136-acre La Villette Park, with concert halls, museums, theaters, event spaces and other cultural venues, is less than 10 minutes away on foot. A comparable walk in the other direction arrives at the Bassin de la Villette, the largest artificial lake in Paris, and a bohemian area offering shops, restaurants and bars, boating and other attractions.

There are cafes, groceries, shops and parking garages in the immediate area. Metro stops in the area include Crimée, Ourcq and Corentin Cariou, with the trip to central Paris typically taking less than 30 minutes.

Size: 1,959 square feet

Price per square foot: €710 ($777)

Indoors: This commercially zoned loft has the feel of a townhouse on three levels. The front door opens to a landing overlooking a light-filled living area with 18-foot industrial-style glass ceilings. The space has a slightly raw feel with metal beams, skylights and exposed stonework.

From the landing, a small staircase ascends to a mezzanine bedroom with floor-to-ceiling glass windows overlooking the living area. Beneath the bedroom is a large open kitchen with white cabinetry and a center island.

Opposite the main entrance, a wood-and-metal staircase climbs to a second bedroom with large interior-facing windows and an en suite shower room with separate toilet, all cantilevered over a library and office space.

The home’s lowest level, partially visible through a glazed floor, has a laundry room, cinema room and another large room that could serve as a primary bedroom with adjoining bathroom.
