Hot New Homes: Italian Spaces as Fresh as Milan's Runways

All well-coiffed heads may be turned toward Milan's fashion offerings this week, but its real estate is just as noteworthy.

All well-coiffed heads may be turned toward Milan's fashion offerings this week, but its real estate is just as noteworthy, with sleek reinterpretations of classic Italian aesthetics in Verona, Tuscany, and more. You wish you lived here.

Location: Como, Lombardy (pictured above)
Size: 14,638 square feet
Selling points: The best part about this three-villa medieval estate is that it doesn't look like it belongs in the Middle Ages. Honey-hued wood flooring, select stone walls, brickwork, and exposed beams take on an industrial vibe when paired with tough accents like metal banisters and stainless-steel appliances.

Location: Tuscany
Size: 9,472 square feet
Selling points: This castle-like home's interior exposed beams, stone walls, and terracotta flooring add a sense of place without being over the top. But we're sold on the yard alone: artfully landscaped gardens, a large infinity pool, terraces perfect for an al fresco dinner, and facilities for horseback riding, clay-pigeon shooting, mountain biking, and tennis.
