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 bring you a converted bunker home and a Modernist landmark in Miami.
Bunker House at Fort Ward, Washington USA
3 bedrooms; $1.738m via Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty
Eggleston/Farkas Architects incorporated a disused military bunker into this cantilever home’s design, using the structure as a concrete base to support the steel and glass structure above. Walls of glass frame views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains in the distance, while interiors have been dressed in warm Brazilian cherry wood. Take a tour.
A cavernous London home by Stanton Williams, UK
6 bedrooms; £9.95m via The Modern House
Commissioned by a film director in 2014, this Stanton Williams designed Highgate home is embedded into a sloping plot overlooking the heath. Its uncompromising concrete form is set with huge glass panels which maintain views across the property and a double-height living room adds drama. See more.

Paul Rudolph’s Milam Residence in Miami, USA
5 bedrooms; POA via the Paul Rudolph Foundation
Its bold geometric facade drew praise in the 1960s and more than 50 years later the Milam Residence is still one of the most distinctive properties on the Miami waterfront. The Modernist property has been faithfully maintained by the Milam family throughout the decades, and it’s just emerged from a recent refurbishment. See more of its midcentury spaces.
