This staggering 48,00 square foot mega-mansion in the Cayman Islands was listed at a jaw-dropping $59 million USD! Can you believe people live in places like these?
Architects Darrick Borowski and Danny Orenstein show us that it’s possible to live quite comfortably in 500 square feet (46 sq m). From stairs that act as storage drawers, to a loft bed, this place uses every square inch of space!
Located in gorgeous Phuket, Thailand, this stunning property boasts over 8,000 square feet of interior space and over 8,500 square feet of outdoor terrace space as well! Situated on the waterfront, this property is simply beautiful
It’s not surprising that the craziest, most outlandish penthouse posted in 2010 would be in New York City. This 5-storey penthouse located in the ultra-swank TriBeCa neighbourhood can be yours for a cool $28 million USD. Anybody want to go half and half on it? :P
It’s a 1965 Boeing 727 converted into a hotel room. Need I say more?
Located in Villa Vals, Switzerland (home to one of the world’s most famous thermal springs) is this fascinating property built into a hillside. Certainly one the most curious entrances we’ve ever seen for a home, this is truly one of the most unique properties posted on the Sifter.
Bought by one of Britain’s richest women for a cool $97.36 million USD, the 300+ ft Maltese Falcon is one of the biggest sailing yachts in the world. It is without doubt, the most extravagant home not on land I’ve ever posted.
If your bachelor pad doesn’t have a beer trough, it’s not as cool as this place. End of story.
When the architect proclaims the property the greatest achievement of his career, it’s probably pretty nice. The Glass Pavilion in Montecito, California is the Sifter’s favourite design of 2010.
Just look at the view! This home is absolutely gorgeous. Beautiful design through and through. The Sifter’s favourite property of 2010.
