A soaring greenhouse lies at the heart of this suburban Parisian home, listed for €990,000.

The property in Fontenay-aux-Roses – 5km from the French capital – actually comprises two structures: an 1800s stone farmhouse and the vestibule-like greenhouse built in the 1930s.

Surrounded by private gardens, the glass addition functions as the lounge and is flooded by natural light. It also comes with an adjoining work/studio area.

Typical French architectural details run throughout the property – on the market via Patrice Besse – including balconies, French windows and parquet flooring.

The area of Fontenay-aux-Roses is also connected by the Coulée verte, the inspiration behind the High Line in New York. This Parisian incarnation, built in 1993, runs along a disused railway for 4.7 km, going all the way to the 12th arrondissement in the city.
