5. TBONE House – Germany
Situated right next to the Porsche headquarters in Stuttgart, Germany, the TBONE House boasts two symmetrical living spaces that come complete with floor to ceiling windows, sleek heated brown slate floors run through the home, built-in leather cabinets and a glass-walled garage to top things off. It’s only fitting that the owner parks his beautiful 1974 Porsche Targa here for all to see.

Residence One has its very own moat, bridge, 13-foot tall doorway, two pools – one being a 50-foot infinity pool overlooking the Indian Ocean and the other, a glass-bottomed one inside the master bedroom.
3. Mirage House – Greece
Measuring a comfortable 198 square meters, the Mirage House was designed by the team at Kois Architecture, and sits high on a steep, rocky hillside on the beautiful Greek islands of Tinos. The interior is built directly into the hillside, and an infinity pool, provides the roof for the outdoor patio section. This design helps provide thermal insulation for the guests in addition to also protecting them from solar radiation.

Based in the pricey Sai Kung district of Hong Kong, Balor just might be the ultimate bachelor pad, spanning several levels. It’s been divided into a collection of boxes, which feature a sunken kitchen, an elevated dining table, and even a living room showcase for a supercar. If you can afford this, we’re sure a LaFerrari will be the next hypercar showcased in your living room.
