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 cottage designed by modernist maverick Marcel Breuer in Connecticut, and Sir Terry Farrell’s London penthouse.
A glasshouse in Tasmania, Australia
3 bedrooms; $900 per night via BoutiqueHomes
Rosevear Stephenson Architects designed this beachfront home on Tasmania’s eastern coast to maximise the dramatic views. Exterior walls are almost entirely glass, meaning ocean views can be enjoyed throughout. The Australian holiday home also has access to its own private beach and comes with numerous terraces for watching the sunrise – or sunset. See inside.
A Marcel Breuer icon in Connecticut, USA
4 bedrooms; $2-2.5m estimate via Wright auction house
Breuer is considered the grandfather of modernism, and Stillman Cottage is among his more experimental designs. The 1970s property appears to float above the landscape thanks to its stilts, while floor-to-ceiling glass draws light into the timber home. It’s going under the hammer in December – but you can register your interest ahead of time. Take a sneak peek.

Sir Terry Farrell’s London penthouse, UK
3 bedrooms; £3.45m via Domus Nova
The home of high-profile British architect Sir Terry Farrell is intriguing as you’d expect. The London apartment caps the Old Aeroworks Factory, which turned out parts for Spitfire fighter planes during WWII. Replicas of the aircraft hang from its vaulted ceiling, and a 1940s style staircase – painted in battleship grey – takes centre stage. Take a closer look.
