What is a Pied-à-terre?

Pied-à-terre is a French term that translates to “foot on the earth” and is used in the New York City and other real estate markets to refer to what is typically a second home or vacation home. The main distinction being that a pied-à-terre is not considered to be a primary residence, but rather a place where you nonetheless wish to establish and maintain a presence, roots or a “foothold”. When looked at it in this light a less literal translation of the French to “foot on the ground” makes far more sense.
