Take5: From a work and home space in Cape Town to a Blackrock house that needs work
Greenbank, a semi-detached house on Stradbrook Road in Blackrock has four bedrooms and extends to 174sq m (1,880sq ft). Though in need of modernisation, the house has huge potential to extend – subject to planning – as rear garden is 33m (108ft) in length on an overall site of 0.22 of an acre. It is near the Dart and within walking distance of the villages of Blackrock and Monkstown.
SOUTH AFRICA: CAPE TOWN
This most unusual offering in Sea Point, Cape Town, is described in the brochure as an “architectural beacon”. Though from the exterior it resembles multiple garage units, inside lies a cool Manhattan loft-style office space with traditional-style housing on middle and lower levels that include a three-bedroom house and a one-bedroom apartment. The property is close to the beach, has uninterrupted sea views, large storage areas, a garden and pool.
This apartment, on the 11th floor of a high-end development in a 16-storey tower built in 2009, has one bedroom and extends to 86sq m (925sq ft). The property, which has a good-sized balcony, is a six-minute walk to the Metro Chiyoda Line, and eight minutes from the Ginza Line.
Price ¥109,800,000 (about €847,000).
This alpine lodge is laid out as nine one-bedroom apartments extending to 537sq m (5,780sq t) overall.

Chateau d’Oz, in the Rhone Alps in the heart of the Oisans region, has year-round activities nearby such as skiing in winter, and cycling, river sports and walking from late spring to autumn.
