Mima Light Floating House

Thanks to a wooden foundation covered in mirrors, the Mima Light Floating House appears to levitate above the ground on which it sits. Its modular design keeps environmental impact to a minimum, and allows for installation in a variety of spots where traditional building methods would be difficult. The interior is outfitted with wooden panels on the floor, walls, and ceiling, high-end fixtures, and a minimal bath and kitchen, while the exterior is clad in a combination of aluminum and laminated glass. Available in 9m and 12m varieties, but sadly for those of us in the States, only in the EU.

  • Michelangelo's Tuscan Villa

    Located just outside Florence, Michelangelo's Tuscan Villa gives you the rare chance to own the former home of a Renaissance master. Originally built as a fort, the property was in the painter's family from the time he purchased it in 1549 until 1867, was recently restored with an eye on historical accuracy, and includes the original documents and deed. There are eight bedrooms and seven baths in the main house, two additional bedrooms in the separate guest house, and an outbuilding that could serve as additional storage or an office/getaway. And while there's no original artwork on the property (that we know of), there is an oil mill and 200 olive trees, enough to supply your family and guests with olive oil without needing to visit the market.

  • Mickey Drexler's Tribeca Loft

    Set in one of Manhattan's most renowned loft buildings on one of Tribeca's most desirable streets, Mickey Drexler's Tribeca Loft is a fitting abode for a fashion mogul. The J. Crew CEO's home offers over 6,200 square feet of space, with highlight features like 11-foot ceilings, wide-plank Brazilian floors, and an 82-foot wide living that separates the master suite from the four other bedrooms. There's also a modern kitchen, arched windows, and what one can only assume is a theater, designated as such by the truly massive flat panel on the wall.
