The Collector’s Loft

Imagine all of the contents of a Maine roadside flea market transplanted into a cozy Brooklyn loft. Every nook and cranny of this loft is filled to the brim with old framed tin-type photographs, retro paintings, dusty books, antlers, old clocks, broken toys, and every kind of tool imaginable – hung on the wall! There’s a tree fort loft made from birch logs, a garden window lounge with a tiny stage, and a rock embedded floor under a clawfoot tub.

Square footage: 1,700 (Open loft room, bedroom, garden nook, kitchen, bathroom and a small sleeping loft).

The Cave House

Forget about Batman, I can picture so many film scenes shot in this cave home: Crocodile Dundee, James Bond, or any number of action-packed thrillers. This family home used to be a roller skating rink and nightclub. The back chamber still has the stage where Ted Nugent, Bob Seger, Ike and Tina Turner, the MC5 and many other bands performed. Recently, there were living quarters including bedrooms, bathrooms, and a kitchen added. The 17,000 foot home boasts 240 acres of cave, including interior springs, waterfalls, and even a 60 acre lake.
