By now you know that I am fussy when it comes to my real estate stalking. Fussy, fussy, fussy and hard to please. Not quite right, bad photos, I need more photos please, house is amazing furniture is deplorable or no furniture at all! Can't quite put my finger on it listings with something that has me nodding "yes". This week's leftovers include an OTT art deco complex with a bathroom of greenest green, a two storey penthouse that is chaotic and classy, a couple of small pools that caught my eye and a 60's iconic house that needs to be saved not bulldozed by developers.

Run away! Run Away! It's Monday. Let's keep the weekend going with a virtual getaway to the Hospedería Convento de La Parra in the Extremadura region of Spain. We could call it a retreat. It is a 17th century convent after all.
"Sorry. You are not going to find a television set here, not even a radio tuner. Only spaces for reading, a table for playing board games, corridors for reflection, cloisters that will bring back to you the smell of orange blossom, lime, wood, rest, peace, water and sun."
Aaaahhh! A heavenly cure for Mondayitis.
It's neck and neck, side by side, elbow to elbow what I like more about this holiday home on the island of Menorca. The sleek, white contemporary lines or the organic, natural touches. Maybe how the two place off each other. The epitome of modern summer style. By Codo a Codo Arquitectura.
Is this the ultimate home cinema? Pass the popcorn and roll the film, I'm moving in. Perched on a ridge line in the Hollywood Hills, the Skyline Residence by Belzberg Architects may incorporate sustainable design practices, may have clean modern lines, expansive rooms with outrageous views through vast walls of glass but what we all will be pinning and filing away for another day will be the outdoor theatre. Genius.
The renovation and extension of this 1930s duplex by Virginia Kerridge Architect saw a double height box added behind the building extending the lower floor apartment. The contemporay space provides a kitchen dining area above and an intimate sitting area that opens to a pool. "The concept behind the scheme was to leave the existing building in close to original condition with the addition being treated as a “box” for living in..." Please Santa. I've been a good girl this year. Could you leave an extension just like this behind my house this Christmas morning?
