Welcome to our weekend property digest, where we bring together the best houses for sale (or rent) that we’ve unearthed across the world. This week we explore a live/work gallery for sale in Paris, and a converted canalside warehouse in Milan.
Parisian art gallery home, France
€6m via Christie’s International Real Estate
Originally designed by architect Emile Molinié in 1913 as an artist’s atelier, this Art Deco Parisian property is home to the Henri Cartier-Bresson Foundation, which is moving out in September 2018. The cavernous space is set over five levels and is crowned by a duplex apartment – currently used as the foundation’s offices. The vast building comes with permission to convert it to residential use. Take a peek inside.
Industrial loft in Milan, Italy
1 bedroom; rent via One Fine Stay, POA
This gritty industrial loft sits next to the Ripa di Porta Ticinese canal in Milan. Traces of its past can be read in its industrial beams, phantom partitions and soaring skylit ceilings, which are paired with cool concrete floors and Modernist furniture. Get a closer look.
Restored townhouse in Sórre, Mallorca
5 bedrooms; €2.5m via Bjurfors
Casa Sa Mar has been given a top-to-toe restoration by Practice Durietz Design and Development, polishing its Franco-Mallorcan bones. The five-bedroom island home is set around a courtyard, and dates back to 1896. Interiors have soaring beamed ceilings, stained glass and furniture by the likes of Herman Miller, Hay and Fritz Hansen – all included in the sale.
Contemporary San Francisco townhouse, USA
4 bedrooms; $11.85m via Vanguard Properties
Design practice Dawson & Clintons spent three years revamping 3847 18th Street – a Victorian
townhouse with thoroughly modern interiors. The four-bedroom home unfurls around a jewel-box glass atrium, planted with bamboo that extends the height of the San Francisco property. Other highlights include sculpted wood panelling and a black steel staircase. Explore its cavernous spaces.
