Welcome to our weekend property digest, where we bring together the best houses for sale (or rent) that we’ve unearthed across the world. Among this week’s discoveries is a jungle-like home by Andresen O’Gorman Architects in Australia and a fashion designer’s Ibizan retreat.
Artist’s loft in Manhattan
1 bedroom; $3.895m via Maggie Kent of Core NYC
Fashion photographer and filmmaker Greg Kadel is selling his loft in SoHo, which features exposed brick walls, 14-ft-high ceilings and historic cast-iron columns. It’s currently configured as a one-bedroom bolthole but, with its 48-ft-long great room, it could easily be turned into a two-bedroom home. Get a closer look.
A fashion designer’s Ibizan villa
6 bedrooms; rents from €34,776 per week via Ibiza Sotheby’s International Realty
This 600 sq m island retreat comes with interiors by BA&SH label founder Barbara Boccara, who has put a bohemian spin on its industrial-style spaces. Concrete floors and wooden wall panels have been teamed with black and white linen and bespoke rustic furnishings across the four-bedroom main house. There’s also a two-bedroom guest house, swimming pool and soccer pitch, and an outdoor lounge for soaking up the sun. Take a look inside.
Converted baptist chapel in Somerset
5 bedrooms; £625,00 via The Modern House
Dating back to the 19th century, this clever conversion comprises a former Baptist chapel and an L-shaped meeting house, which have been turned into two interconnected units. Hardwood floors, arched lancet windows and soaring volumes have been retained throughout, and the chapel is enjoying a second life as a vast living room. The former Sunday school has been repurposed as a bedroom wing.
Rosebery House in Brisbane
4 bedrooms; POA via Modern House
Rosebery House is something of a celebrity, having been published in 15 architectural journals and magazines since its completion in 1997. The treehouse-like home is the handiwork of much celebrated Aussie practice Andresen O’Gorman Architects and it was conceived as a trio of pavilions that are unified by a super-sized trellis facade and private courtyards. Have a look around.
A glass villa in Goa
4 bedrooms; $2.3m via Sotheby’s International Realty
Light floods this Goa villa, designed by Tarun Tahiliani. Tucked away in Nachinola, the 6,628 sqft property is surrounded by plant life and is just 15 minutes drive from north Goa’s feted beaches.
