New York City doesn’t have a monopoly on stunning lofts, and this $11.5 million Parisian listing is here to prove it.

This ornate loft conversion features a gabled glass roof, resting on a early 20th-century steel structure created by famed French architect Gustave Eiffel, according to Curbed.

The 9,400-square-foot former textile factory in the Bastille neighborhood was converted into a five-bedroom mansion and includes such amenities as an indoor pool, a hamam bath, a 15-seat movie theater and a wine cellar.

“It was a workshop with only four walls and a roof made of corrugated iron with not a single window,” owner Véronique Bonnefond told the Wall Street Journal.

Bonnefond and her husband bought and converted the property after their business venture at the address failed. [Curbed] Christopher Cameron
