Let’s start with a majestic one villa in the Gulf of Tigullio, which will make architecture lovers dream, as well as those of adventure. The location is actually Sestri Levante, a land linked to the myth of the siren Segesta, the forerunner of the Little Mermaid. But beyond this legendary aura that surrounds it, the villa – now on sale via Lionard – stands out for its undisputed architectural value, placing it among the most successful examples of Italian modernism. Built between 1938 and 1940, it bears the signature of Luigi Carlo Daneri, which enhances the beauty of the landscape through a clean and essential construction, in perfect balance with nature. Characterized by a great functional rigor, the interiors retain their original charm and, with their total of 1,100 square meters, are perfect for accommodating a good number of guests. The plus is the direct access to the sea through a suggestive path between the trees.

Crossing the water in Mediterranean Seawe dock on the island Hydrain Greece, to discover the second home on sale of the week. To call it home is actually an understatement because Cyanathis is its name, it looks more like a castle of Renaissance inspiration, designed in the eighteenth century by an Italian architect and belonged to one of the most famous families of the place. Today, the property, which stretches over 700 square meters and is surrounded by mighty walls like a fortress, still shows its ancient splendor intact, which emerges from elements such as arches, wooden ceilings and the monumental staircase that welcomes guests at the entrance. . But a careful restoration has rejected all this magnificence in a modern key, equipping the structure, or rather the five available structures, with all the comforts. An infinity pool and a private chapel are just some of the extras that the house boasts, but its flagship is undoubtedly the large terraces that stretch out over a breathtaking panorama.

There are those who prefer the big city dimension to the atmosphere by the sea, and so here we are London, in the Camberwell area, where a very urban style loft with a unique character awaits us. We are actually talking about a former bus station from the Victorian era, totally restored in 1990 by David Quigley with postmodern details and art deco references. The interior, curated by the Space Group Architects studio, emphasizes volumes and light and plays with industrial elements that testify to the site’s past. And then room for exposed brick walls, concrete floors and large black steel beams. An inner courtyard with red balustrades now completes the three-bedroom property on the market to 1.65 million pounds.

And now in step with Rock and roll let’s slide in California, more specifically in rural Casitas Springs. Right here, in 1961, Johnny Cash built his dream house, a bow retiro wrapped in candy hills and meadows in flower, often evoked in his passages. Ownership now on the market for $1.9 million, still bears the visible mark of its legendary tenant, who actively contributed to the design, in details such as the country patterned family room, curved brick plinth, custom built-ins and an original wall-mounted record player. The wood-panelled studio where Johnny wrote some of his biggest hits has also remained intact. There are five bedrooms and you can’t miss the swimming pool to refresh yourself outdoors and enjoy the enchanting tranquility of the place.

Closing our weekly review is another California house of great historical value, the Van Horn Residence from Palm Springs. The villa was built in 1948 for a rather famous writer and actress at the time and bears the signature of the well-known local architect Herbert W. Burns, of which it fully represents the style. Among its recurring aesthetic features we find, for example, the sandstone pillars, the vertical posts, the steel windows, the colored concrete floors. There are three bedrooms, with as many bathrooms and generous common areas, bordered by glass walls that blur the line between inside and out. Here, too, a swimming pool has been created in the garden, an essential part of the California lifestyle. To complete the picture, there is also a fantastic view of the mountains that surround the area. That price to get your hands on this jewel (expertly preserved and restored) is off 1.56 million dollars.
