White-washed interiors are bursting with character at this New York carriage house.

Take a virtual tour of the Brooklyn Heights home.
Beach house in Corsica, France
Sleeps 12; from €980 per night direct
Casa Santa Teresa sits on the Ajaccio shorefront. The dilapidated 1950s island home had been empty for decades before architect Amelia Tavella got her hands on it. She’s heightened the island home’s connection to the water, installing pivoting glass doors that open interiors up to a large front terrace. Get a closer look.
