Amazing Homes Thread

Searched, couldn't find one. I think it's time we get a thread for awesome houses. We have them for bridges, skyscrapers, but no homes? Come on you guys!

Quote:


Like in a dream, live in the most expensive apartment in Dumbo Brooklyn – The infamous “Clocktower” apartment complex is selling its top floor triplex penthouse apartment. ($25 million )



The apartment has a great history of once being a factory, and it is also very unique! Check out these pictures of the “Clocktower” penthouse apartment that were published in the New York Times this week.













more pictures at cyanatrendland.com
could you imagine owning this house? it would be like a dream come true!

Is the clock still operational? I do hope they switched its components over to more modern ones, because the sound of the functioning clock would drive me crazy!

This has always been one of my favorite homes. It's located in Victoria B.C. and for sale through Sotheby's for around $17.5 million USD.

@amor de cosmos - Thanks for showing me that beautiful website ( http://freshome.com/ ). Since I've found it I've spent around 2 hours browsing it. Lots of inspiration.

Looks like you stopped everyone in their tracks with that one, Hammersklavier!

If I could choose any house I've every seen to live in, it would be Vaux le Vicomte in France. Saw it on a school trip 21 years ago, still remember it vividly:

That style of architecture and furnishing would be wasted on me.

I just want something like this:






Philip Johnson's Farney House in Sagaponack (between Southampton and Bridgehampton). Just sold this summer for $24 million.

http://bhshamptons.com/sagaponack-ny...2205-10836131/

Needs some interior work but that's probably part of why it didn't sell for the asking price of $35 million.

Isn't this house next to that huge massive one?

I absolutely love Falling Water, I think it has the most beautiful natural settings, impressive engineering, classic awesome design, and I actually love the interior. It is stuck in a time I want to be in. It looks like the most relaxing place in the world.
