France's 'Rich Tax' Creates Real Estate Bonanza

Rue D’Anjou, Paris

Asking: €2.6 million ($3.38 million)

This relatively snug two-bedroom apartment occupies the two top floors of a five-story building in the Eighth Arrondissement, near the Place de la Concorde and the monumental Greek temple of a Catholic Church known as the Madeleine. The lower floor has a fully equipped kitchen, living room and a dining room, all with sleek ebonized floors and floor-to-ceiling casement windows. The upper floor has two bedrooms and a bath with a "dressing room" for Madame.
