This two-bedroom loft is located in the vibrant La Villette district, a former slaughterhouse district 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 a 10-minute walk away. A comparable walk in the other direction reaches 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, grocery stores, shops and parking in the immediate area. Metro stops in the area include Crimée, Ourcq and Corentin Cariou, and the journey to central Paris usually takes less than 30 minutes.

Size: 1,959 square feet

Price per square foot: €710 ($777)

Inside: This loft with commercial area has the feel of a townhouse on three levels. The front door opens onto a landing leading into a light filled living room with 18ft industrial style glass ceilings. The space has a slightly raw feel with metal beams, skylights and exposed stone.

From the landing, a small staircase ascends to a mezzanine bedroom with glass windows overlooking the living room. Below the bedroom is a large open kitchen with white cabinets and a center island.

Opposite the main entrance, a wooden and metal staircase ascends to a second bedroom with large windows facing the interior and a bathroom with shower and separate toilet, all cantilevered over a library and office space.

The lowest level of the house, partially visible through a glazed floor, has a laundry room, a cinema room and another large room that could serve as a master bedroom with an adjoining bathroom.

Outer space: The loft, which is located in the backyard of an early 20th century building, is accessed via a 129-square-foot private patio.

Taxes: 2,067 euros ($2,261) per year, plus annual co-ownership fees of 3,560 euros ($3,901).

This loft apartment is located in the colorful Sainte-Avoye neighborhood, a center of artists and art dealers in the Marais district. Attractions include the half-acre Anne Frank Garden and several museums, including the Museum of Jewish Art and History. The peculiar Passage de L'Ancre is a hidden pedestrian route.

The Marais had fallen into disrepair but was revived in recent years and is now among the most fashionable areas of Paris, with many buildings of historical and architectural importance. The district has many restaurants, shops, groceries, parking and other services.

Nearby metro stops include Rambuteau, Arts et Métiers and Étienne Marcel, with all the amenities of central Paris minutes away.

Size: 1,112 square feet

Price per square foot: €1,250 ($1,368)

Inside: This loft was once a workshop and then a gallery. Highlighted is a floor-to-ceiling industrial-style glass wall that houses the main entry door, which opens to a landing that opens to a substantial living space with 13-foot ceilings. An exposed stone wall, old wooden beams, metal I-beams, and a column add a slightly gritty feel to the space.

A kitchen with a contemporary marble design opens to the main living room. All floors are polished concrete. Beyond the kitchen, a space topped with a sloped glass roof is used as a library and office. A workshop-style glass partition separates it from a bedroom adjacent to a bathroom.

From the entrance landing, concrete stairs ascend to a mezzanine with two open sides running the length of the apartment. The mezzanine has an open bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and a dressing room large enough to convert into a third bedroom.

Outer space: The apartment, in a nine-unit building, is located on a quiet and private street.

Taxes: €1,035 ($1,130) per year, plus proportional annual expenses of €6,000 ($6,573)
