The Château des Brouillards, the onetime home of acclaimed impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir, has been put on the market for a whopping €7.8M (approximately $9.9 million US). The Château, built in 1772 by a Parisian lawyer, is located in the uber-trendy neighborhood of Montmartre. The home’s garden affords stunning views of some of Paris’ most iconic Paris, including the Church of the Sacré Coeur. This 3,000-square-foot stone home boasts four bedrooms, four bathrooms, a French country-style open kitchen, 20-foot ceilings, with the added luxury of an indoor pool and other modern amenities thanks to a recent $3-million renovation.
Local historians believe Renoir lived at the estate throughout the late 1880s. The home is currently owned by the former executive of a successful French denim company, who purchased the property during an auction in 2002 and spent millions meticulously renovating the home.
The property is listed with Xavier Attal of Immobest International in Paris, France.
