Extravagant homes in eclectic buildings with richly adorned façades are dotted around the city, interspersed with private mansions built of stone and elegant, minimalist 20th-century residences. Nestled between the Bois de Boulogne and western Paris, Neuilly is a quiet enclave of beauty at the heart of the metropolis that also boasts excellent secondary schools, prestigious shops, high-quality facilities and a safe environment that makes it popular with a wealthy clientele and families. Its location on the edge of Paris also means that it’s the ideal starting point for a weekend away.
The real estate market
Prices have evolved differently depending on the quality of the property. Those at the top end of the market have increased steadily and stabilised at around €14,000-16,000, while the average price of a typical property is around €12,000 per sq.m. Properties with defects or requiring a lot of work are on a downward price trend.
The Sablons district is ideal for families, Saint James for those who like peaceful, green surroundings, and the Ile de la Jatte for those seeking a rustic ambiance with plenty of shops and businesses.
Buyers wishing to move to Neuilly on a ‘tight’ budget will find the best prices on the busiest boulevards and thoroughfares. If it’s a rarer property you’re after, these are often negotiated off market, so please do get in touch with us.
