On a quiet block in the Cobble Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn, a circa-1850s townhouse draws in passersby with its striking design.

According to listing agent Jill Braver of Brown Harris Stevens, the house was completed in 1888 by architect James Naughton, a former superintendent of buildings for the Brooklyn Board of Education. “He embellished the facade, added a story and put the mansard roofs and the turret on the house,” Ms. Braver said. “It’s a very whimsical piece of architecture—really, one of a kind. Anyone who walks by it says, ‘Gee, I wonder what it looks like inside?’” Owner James Stewart is happy to provide some details. “The house is a beautifully preserved 130-year-old place with parquet floors, 15-foot ceilings and pocket doors,” he said.

But he cites the home’s spaciousness as its greatest asset. “The main advantage of having a big house in New York is that you can be generous—we have loved entertaining our relatives and friends over the years,” Mr. Stewart said. “We set up the top floor a guest quarters so people can have their own space. And it’s exactly what we were looking for in terms of city living. We’re quite close to Manhattan but can walk just about anywhere we need to in the neighborhood.” The home’s main floor has a living room with a bay window and a window seat overlooking the front garden; the kitchen and dining area is also on this level. The downstairs unit has its own kitchen and full bathroom.

Mr. Stewart’s wife is a therapist who currently uses the garden apartment as her office. But the property is a legal two-family residence, so the space could be rented out.

The home has five bedrooms, three full bathrooms and one half-bathroom within 3,718 square feet of interior living space. These numbers include the garden apartment.

A standout feature of the property is that it the stands back from the street, which allows for a garden in the front; there is also a landscaped rear garden. Inside, there are two wood-burning fireplaces on the main floor. #listingoftheday

The Big Easy is known for its lavish and historic architecture, but every once in a while a true stunner hits the market. The Cornstalk Fence Mansion (as it’s known locally) was built in 1859 and designed by Henry Howard, a noted architect in the South at the time. The stately home features a garden, along with four balconies, and nearly every room opens to a patio or the garden. But the most distinguishing feature of this mansion is the morning glory and cornstalk motif cast-iron fence around the entrance. “It’s one of the greatest homes in New Orleans and the whole south,” says Hill Riddle, Jr. of Hill Riddle Jr., & Associates. “It’s an iconic structure loved by locals and tourists.” The mansion was built for Col. Robert H. Short, a wealthy commission merchant from Kentucky, and for brief stints at the height of the American Civil War, served as a home for a top government official and then a major general.

The current owners, a couple that “want to downsize,” according to Mr. Riddle, purchased the property in 1994 and began a 10-year restoration. They furnished the palatial home with period French antiques from local vendors, specially woven rugs from England and hand-sewn silk drapes.

The 9,800-square-foot home has six bedrooms, three full bathrooms and three partial bathrooms.

The chef-style kitchen is equipped with Sub-Zero appliances and a La Cornue free-standing island stove and rotisserie. The house is lit by numerous antique chandeliers, including one in the breakfast room from the 1850s that is composed of Baccarat crystals. A small side garden blooms camelias, roses, gardenias, crepe myrtles and magnolias.

In addition to the unusual cast-iron fence, the Colonial Revival mansion includes details such as Corinthian columns, pocket doors, marble mantels, masterful millwork and walkthrough windows. #ListingOfTheDay

This charming home on Sydney Place, called Queen Charlotte’s Orangery, is described by its agent, Jack King of Savills, as “quite small but perfectly formed.” A Grade-I listed property, it is a house of great architectural and historical significance.

It was originally built in 1812 as part of the estate of Queen Charlotte, on the back of a main house, but the two properties have since been separated.

The property has undergone renovations by Mark Watson of Watson Bertram and Fell Architects.

About 15 years ago, a large extension was added, which doubled the size of the property, while preserving its authentic architectural style. It includes the home’s stunning rotunda atrium with a glazed ceiling skylight.

The house’s quiet, tucked away location, a stone’s throw from picturesque Sydney Gardens, is still within walking distance of the center of the city of Bath.

This single-story, 2,012 square foot home has four bedrooms and four bathrooms.

The Orangery has an interesting history dating back several centuries. It was originally built as an orangery house for Queen Charlotte in 1812. Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz (1744 –1818), who married King George III, was the Queen of Great Britain and Ireland from 1761 until the union of the two kingdoms in 1801. After the union, she was Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland until her death in 1818.

Queen Charlotte was a patron of the arts and an amateur botanist, who helped expand London’s Kew Gardens, according to travel writer John Murray. Only 2.5% of England’s Listed buildings are honored with a Grade-I Listing (the highest grade), marking it as a property of exceptional historic interest, and this house is among them. #ListingOfTheDay

The iconic Hines House, one of the first private homes designed by well-known Northern California architect William Turnbull Jr., has come on the market publicly for the first time since 1972.

In the early 1960s, Turnbull was one of a handful of architects who created the master plan of the ecologically designed 10-mile Pacific Coast stretch known as The Sea Ranch. “They were geniuses,” said Hines House listing agent Ilana Gafni. “Their main thing was they wanted the houses to be integrated into the landscape.” “It’s a really idyllic setting, with lots of trees—there were wild turkeys walking around when we visited,” she said. “You’re in a forest, but with views of the ocean, too.” The Hines House is unusual because of its “big house/bunk house setup,” she said, with a main house for the family and an almost adjacent smaller guesthouse right next door. “There is an elongated terrace between the two structures,” Ms. Gafni said. “The main house is really interesting because he put the windows on the corners to direct your views to the ocean,” she said.

The extensive use of sturdy redwood and Douglas fir in the home help to unite the buildings with the surrounding landscape, she said. There are also six strategically placed skylights. “They were very careful about materials because it’s windy there, and it rains,” Ms. Gafni said.

The house is built into a slight slope, she said, “but you don’t really notice it when you’re inside the house because of the way he designed it.” Turnbull worked on the 1968 house throughout his life, designing a kitchen expansion, library, view deck and new skylights. The home won the Sunset/AIA Home of the Year Award in 1970, and has been extensively published in Japan, Europe and North America.

Ms. Gafni thinks the buyer will likely be an “architecture aficionado—it’s not a traditional sort of place.” “This is pure Turnbull, and pretty unaltered,” she added. “It’s in really good condition.” The 2,382-square-foot house has four bedrooms and three bathrooms. It sits on a 1.58-acre lot.

Amenities include a wine cellar, laundry room, two-car garage, tool shed, wood shed and a security system. #listingoftheday

Looking out over Wailea Point on a typically calm morning, this oceanside condominium provides front row seats to a cerulean seascape, pristine beaches and lush foliage. “The minute I walked into this condo it took my breath away,” said listing agent Ron Silva of Island Sotheby’s International Realty. Designed to bring the scenic landscape inside, the residence’s open-concept design and panoramic views of the surrounding ocean and land allow the homeowner to experience the bustle of the beach from the comfort of their own home.

Inside, the living room is defined by tall, angular ceilings reaching up to 25-feet, unique lighting fixtures enhanced by a plethora of recessed lights, and a contemporary, open kitchen inseparable from the rest of the living space. Meanwhile, the home’s neutral interior pallet is given texture by subtle stone floors and pops of warmth from wood features that can be seen throughout, particularly in the bedrooms and bathrooms. “Oceanfront homes of this caliber are going from $20 million to $30 million,” Mr. Silva said, noting that the benefit of owning this particular condo is that homeowners need not “worry about everything an oceanfront house” typically entails. As a result, the residence provides all the benefits of a Hawaiian beachside home but with the lifestyle and maintenance of an exclusive resort-like community.

The 3,850-square-foot residence includes three bedrooms and three full bathrooms.

There’s a media room, library and office. And as a part of an exclusive residential community, the property includes access to both tennis courts and swimming pools. #ListingOfTheDay​

This fully renovated two-floor parlor loft takes up the second and third floors of a five-story brownstone on East 9th Street in the heart of Manhattan’s Greenwich Village. “It’s been renovated to perfection,” said listing agent Benjamin Glazer of Douglas Elliman. “The owners brought it back to the original feel—that’s the charm of the apartment.” “The owners keep it in amazing shape,” he added. “It’s a pied-a-terre for them.” They bought the parlor floor of the 1900 brownstone in 2005 and the floor above it in 2012, he said, and then combined the units into one unified, two-story space.

Original architectural details include floor-to-ceiling Ionic columns, Greek Revival trim and moldings, and grand room dimensions, including 13-foot ceilings in most rooms. The living room has south-facing floor-to-ceiling windows with original wood shutters.

The kitchen features 23-foot ceilings, Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, an integrated ceiling sound system, a built-in breakfast nook for eight people and a private terrace for intimate meals or morning coffee.

There is also a 20-by-27-foot terrace surrounded by mature trees and low-rise townhomes.

The master bedroom has a gas fireplace and custom lacquer floor-to-ceiling built-ins. The master bathroom features a double-vanity sink, separate soaking tub and walk-in shower, and a Swarovski-crystal curtain.

The 4,000-square-foot cooperative apartment has three bedrooms and three full bathrooms. There is also about 500 square feet of outdoor space.

Amenities include a fully integrated Crestron home automation system, laundry facilities, and recessed lighting by a lighting designer specializing in lighting museums, art galleries and expensive homes.

The apartment has four fireplaces, Mr. Glazer said. One is wood burning, two are gas, and one is decorative but could be brought back to working order. #ListingOfTheDay

Originally built between 1849 and 1864 by Francis Radford, this West London mansion was considered to be “one of the largest and most successful developments in Victorian Notting Hill,” according to the London County Council.

Notting Hill is known principally for its private communal gardens—16 in all, according to Miles Meacock, the listing agent for the house. Only residents in the homes that adjoin the private gardens have access to them. This detached, double-fronted house not only overlooks gardens but also features greenery around the perimeter of the house, a rarity for a congested urban area.

The historical house retains much of its charm, from its stucco fronted, Italianate architectural style to its impressive amount of restored ornate crown molding.

Contemporary finishes can be found throughout, such as an Agape freestanding soaking tub—an original Italian design that’s been knocked off countless times around the world—and underfloor heating.

A Crestron system controls the home automation, including a network of security cameras. The kitchen is modern, with sleek Balthaup cabinetry and storage, double Sub-Zero refrigerators, high-end Gaggenau appliances, and a 16-foot-long kitchen island. French doors lead to the garden.

The stately home spans 13,327 square feet and holds its volume well throughout its four levels. High ceilings on the raised ground floor reach just over 13 feet tall. There are eight bedrooms and a total of 13 bathrooms (including five half-bathrooms). There are eight gas fireplaces, and more decorative fireplaces since the home was originally heated with a fireplace in each room. The home, though in a central urban area, has plenty of outdoor space with the terraces, balconies, and gardens.

The house features a car elevator, a passenger elevator and a dumbwaiter. The car elevator, an unusually luxurious amenity, can hold up to two cars at once and descends to the sub-basement, where there are five parking spaces. A finished gym, a sauna and steam room, and staff accommodation are on the basement level. #ListingOfTheDay

The historic Mediterranean revival-style mansion in Los Angeles’s Fremont Place community has been home to King G. Gillette, son of the razor baron; John J. Cantwell, the first archbishop of Los Angeles; James Francis McIntyre, when he served as cardinal; and Patricia Barham, one of the first women to report on the Korean war.

Barham, who died in 2016, had rented the house from the Roman Catholic Archdiocese before buying it in an off-market deal in 1973. Barham wrote a Hollywood column for the Los Angeles Herald & Express, and entertained often at the mansion. “She knew everybody and everybody knew her,” said James Inman, her husband, adding that Barham Boulevard in Los Angeles is actually named after her father, Frank Barham, publisher of the Los Angeles Herald-Express.

Fremont Place was the first gated community in Los Angeles, with 73 mansions on large lots, each vying to be more glamorous than the next. The enclave has maintained its original exclusivity—it is open only to residents and their guests and doesn’t appear on Google Street View. This house was among the earlier homes to be built in the enclave. Like others in Fremont Place, it has kept many original details like mahogany paneling.

The 9,339-square-foot house has nine bedrooms and six bathrooms, plus one partial bath and a restroom accessible from outside.

The chauffeur’s quarters above the four-car garage include a bedroom, living room, kitchen, and bathroom. The grounds cover 1.25 acres.

The 36.5-by-14-foot pool, with an additional six-by-five-foot spat at the end, is heated.

A chapel installed by Cantwell was converted to a music room by Barham. In the basement, a wine cave can hold more than 300 bottles.

The house was built in 1915 by Charles Henry Thompson, a Chicago developer. The beamed ceiling in the dining room is painted in a Renaissance style. #ListingOfTheDay

This duplex penthouse sits atop one of two new six-story buildings along swanky Rothschild Boulevard in Tel Aviv.

Each building will have four large apartments, a garden duplex apartment, and a duplex penthouse with a private rooftop pool and large terrace. “Unlike penthouses that are in a tower, we’re talking about a penthouse that is in a much more intimate building, with only five other tenants in each building,” said Yigal Zemah, marketing director of Villa Rothschild. “There are very few penthouses with a swimming pool on Rothschild Boulevard, let alone in a small building that is not a high rise,” he said.

The two new Villa Rothschild buildings sit on either side of a historic building from the 1920s by Israeli-Russian architect Joseph Berlin. “It’s a mix of old and new,” Mr. Zemah said.

The project architect is Gidi Bar Orian, and the interiors are by architects Paola Liani and Itai Paritzki. Construction is under way, and “it will be ready at the end of this year,” Mr. Zemah said. “The apartment has a very flexible design,” he said. “We think two or three bedrooms is the right size.” “The rooftop will be a fun place to hang out and enjoy the beautiful Tel Aviv weather,” he added.

The 1,884-square-foot apartment will be outfitted for two or three bedrooms and three full bathrooms. There is also a nearly 1,100-square-foot balcony and terrace space, plus a nearly-1,000-square-foot rooftop with a swimming pool.
Amenities include around-the-clock security, parking, a private storage area, a superintendent personally available to serve residents and provide various concierge services such as transportation, laundry, and restaurant and theater reservations.

In addition, the buildings will feature a wine cellar where every apartment will have its own temperature-controlled facilities. #ListingOfTheDay

This historic house in the posh Primrose Hill area of London was constructed by William Willett, a builder and promoter of British Summer Time, who’s often credit with leading to its adoption across the country.

Known as Elsworthy House, the seven-bedroom home has not been on the market for 60 years, having been in the same family for four generations. “It’s a very unusual listing,” said listing agent Michael Sulkin of Aston Chase. “It’s almost like a country house in the heart of London.” “There is a private garden, and then you have access to a three-acre communal garden,” he said. “It’s very leafy and it’s only for the residents—it’s a pretty special space.” This house on Elsworthy Road was built in 1890 by the luxury building firm Willett Building Services, headed by Mr. Willett. (Elsworthy Road was built in phases between 1875-81 and 1896-1911.) The architecture of the double-fronted, three-story house was inspired by the Art and Crafts movement and Queen Anne Revival style, tailored into a local vernacular known as “Willet Style.” It has a long carriage driveway, Mr. Sulkin said. “You can get seven or eight cars on the drive, which is very unusual.” The seven-bedroom house has a grand entrance foyer that leads to two interlinking reception rooms, a large dining room, family kitchen and a glass conservatory that can seat up to 24 people. “There are two working fireplaces in the reception rooms, a fireplace in the dining room and one in the entrance hall,” said. “We’ve had a cold winter, so it’s been quite nice to have them.” Designed in shades of white, the kitchen is bright and spacious with lots of storage.

The large dining room has dark oak floors and a restored period ceiling and bronze chandelier by Porto Romano. Other architectural details in the house include bay and dormer windows, high ceilings, original plasterwork restored by craftsmen and four sets of French doors that lead from the conservatory to the back garden. “The private garden is very charming, with a barbecue area, a seating area and nice landscaping,” Mr. Sulkin said.

The 5,845-square-foot house has seven bedrooms and seven full bathrooms. #listingoftheday
