Set in the former NYPD gym, The Police Building is a fantastic four-bedroom apartment at one of Manhattan's most iconic addresses. Designed by Charles Gwathmey, it measures 6,600 square feet, much of that taken up by the great room. With 25-foot barrel-vaulted ceilings, three skylights, exposed steel trusses, and multiple sitting and dining areas, it's ideal for entertaining large groups. It shares the first floor with a chef-grade kitchen, wine cellar, the master bedroom with dual bathrooms, a sauna, and walk-in closets, and a private terrace. Upstairs lie the rest of the bedrooms, as well as an open library that sits above the master bedroom and looks over the great room below.
Comprised of 20 acres on the Sea of Abaco in the Bahamas, Foot's Cay Private Island is an ideal private getaway. Spread across the island are a four-suite main house with professional-grade appliances, limestone floors, and a modern aesthetic, a more traditional three bedroom cottage for guests nearby, and another two bedroom cottage tucked away on the end of the western beach. There's also a tennis court with a cabana, a cut-out limestone harbor, and plenty of pristine white sand. It's also just 30 minutes away from an international airport, making getting to and from the island a breeze.
They're meant to be hotel accommodations, but judging by the design and quality of Ood Mirrored Prefab Rooms, they'd make fine getaways as well. The exterior is split between wood panel cladding and mirrored glazing, which provides spectacular views from inside. Steel makes up the roughly 18 square meter structure, which provides room for a custom made bed, desk, chair, sink, toilet, and shower, with functions such as the locks, lights, and temperature controlled remotely via an integrated router. Best of all, it can be installed in as little as eight hours, meaning you can start seeing a return on your investment — whether through guests or relaxation — immediately.
Located on 255 acres of untouched wilderness, the Montana Saloon Ranch gives you resort amenities in a private residence. The main house offers four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and three fireplaces, while additional housing can be found in the guest house, bunk house, and manager's home. Four-legged guests have their own accommodations on the property's horse barn, arena, tack room, and indoor kennel. Although it's just 50 minutes from Missoula, there's plenty to keep you occupied with a swimming pond, fishing pond, theater, Finnish sauna cabin, and western-style saloon.
Built in the 1950s in New Canaan, Connecticut, the Noyes Brown House elegantly blends old with the new. Joeb Moore & Partners added a simple metallic extension that mimics the proportions and layout of the original one-story building and added a glass wall to the entryway that provides views of the front courtyard from the stairways. The completed structure stays faithful to the spirit of the original and includes five bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms, a pool with pool house, and an outdoor dining area with fireplace. A fantastic example of mid-century design, updated for modern life.
