11 homes that are out of this world
1. Jamie Chua’s home has a 700-square-foot closet. It’s the Singaporean socialite and businesswoman’s favourite spot in the house. The closet opens only with her fingerprints. It houses her collection of over 200 Hermès bags.
2. The Pink Lady of Hollywood has an entire home filled with pink. There is nothing in the home that isn’t in the colour scheme.
3. This 3D printed home in Texas is a prototype of a home that can be built in 24 hours. It measures 650 square feet. Mortar was printed layer by layer, and workers installed the windows, doors, plumbing, and electrical systems. It has a living room, a small office space, one bedroom, and one bathroom.
4. Peter Cohen designed his home around his 24 rescue cats. The house has 300 feet of walkways and about 15 tunnels. He has been designing the walkways for 25 years.
5. This $US3.6 million apartment has a retractable wall. It opens up to the living room and combines indoor and outdoor space. The apartment also features other multiuse furniture pieces.
6. This NYC loft has a zip line and a slide. The four kids’ bedrooms all have a special feature they designed. They have a rock-climbing wall, monkey bars, floor-to-ceiling maps, and a spiral slide.
7. This home, nicknamed the “Flinstone House,” is a piece of art. The fun home has colourful stained-glass windows… And a stone bathtub and shower. It’s filled with artwork and sculptures.
8. The Safe House is a home in Portland built around security. The home is also energy-efficient, collecting solar energy during the day when it’s open.
9. This ultraluxurious apartment is on NYC’s Billionaires’ Row. The duplex has phenomenal views… And luxurious touches, like an entire bathroom made from marble imported from Italy.
10. The Silverfield Villa sits at the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. The Airbnb has seven bedrooms and sleeps 24 people. A six-story glass elevator runs from the basement to the rooftop.
11. These Hobbit Holes are custom-built for “Lord of the Rings” fans. You can live in one or use it as a playhouse. Each is built by hand.
