Dec 5, 2013  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

Personally, I would love to live in a home called Fish House. It makes me think of soothing water elements and of course, mermaids.

Nov 26, 2013  |   Contributor: James Rothaar

Is this the ultimate in home security or what? From the exterior it is as imposing as Fort Knox and sports the ambiance of Alcatraz, but this concrete monolith is actually a cleverly disguised luxury residence. The two-story “Safe House,” which is located outside of Warsaw, Poland, was built in 2009.

Palm Beach's Impressive Old Palm Golf Club Has an Intimate Opulence

Nov 23, 2013  |   Contributor: Jared Paul Stern

Nearly every private club defines itself as exclusive, but few can lay claim to the term as honestly as South Florida’s Old Palm Golf Club, which is permanently limited to 330 memberships. The figure is roughly equal to the amount of estates which can ever be constructed on its 651 lushly landscaped acres in Palm Beach Gardens — a parcel which could easily accommodate twice as many houses.

Nov 19, 2013  |   Contributor: Noah Joseph

Tel Aviv may not be the oldest metropolis on the Mediterranean, but in the hundred years since its founding the White City has developed into one of the most vibrant.

When Katniss and Peeta were fighting for their lives on the cornucopia in The Hunger Games, were you thinking about how neat the design would look translated as a residence? Maybe you weren't, but that's certainly what came to my mind when I saw the modern outer shell that made up the structure. Luckily, my dream house actually exists and it's in Victoria, Australia!
