Today I’m sharing a gorgeous manor house located in Tarbes, near Lourdes, France. Restored in 2005 with approximately 600m² of living space, a caretaker’s house 250m², garage and 5 acres of parkland. The main house comprises 3 drawing rooms, 2 dining rooms, fully equipped kitchen, 3 offices, wash room, 2 dressing rooms, 7 bedrooms and 5 bath or shower rooms and 2 terraces on the first floor with jacuzzi and a fountain. The caretaker’s house includes 2 sitting rooms, kitchen, 6 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and basement and the garage has a work shop and possibility for 6 cars. The style of this home is unique and almost chalet-like. This would be so fun to get my hands on! If only I had a spare 2.3M USD. For sale via Le Figaro Properties.
The landscaping of this home in the Sydney suburb of Haberfield is lush and contemporary and has everything you could possibly want to enjoy the lovely weather those Australia get 364 days a year ;). Now I’m going to be dreaming and scheming how I can get myself a steel pond. Designed by Fieldwork Associates. (Photos: Jessica Harris)
“This project, designed for a creative couple and their two children, converted a non-descript backyard into an outdoor living space with a pool and new freestanding casita building for additional living and entertaining space.”

This sprawling home with the most epic views is located in Glen Ellen, California and is another project by those talented Hommeboys. Indoor/outdoor living is essential with a location like this, and the organic materials used throughout really do help bring nature indoors. Absolutely stunning.
“SWDS was enlisted to create the interiors and exterior living spaces of this brilliant Taalman Koch Architecture project. The steel, glass and concrete home, sits on the side of the mountain overlooking Santa Barbara and the ocean. The clients love to entertain family and friends, and were committed to the ideal of true indoor outdoor living. They also, wanted a warm and rustic feel, rather than the typical austere choices that are typically made with this type of architecture.”
Simply elegant living with a mid century modern vibe. West Mountain by Sarah Walker Design Studio.
