Welcome to our weekly property digest, where we share some of the best houses for sale or rent across the globe. This week we have a trio of rustic, restored and rural homes for sale and a slow-travel retreat in the Caribbean.
The Old Workshop in High Suffolk, UK
3 bedrooms; £750,000 via Inigo
Skirted by the coast and Suffolk plains, The Old Workshop in Saint James is a rustic property that wears its history on its sleeve. Rugged hand-hewn beams and floorboards cross the 18th-century home, which has been expanded with a new addition by architect Mark Prizeman that houses sleeping areas. The double-height kitchen with its Shaker cupboards, tiled floors and wood stove is a particular highlight, though there are so many striking corners and intricate details it’s hard to pick. Take a look inside.

A restored country finca outside Palma, Mallorca
€1.9m via Fantastic Frank
This historic farmstead, outside of Palma, doesn’t come cheap – but it includes not one but three buildings on the bucolic plot between the villages of Santa Maria del Camí and Buñola. The historic finca has been given a top-to-toe renovation in a contemporary Spanish style with white-washed plaster walls and hand-hewn beams on show next to modern furniture and bespoke cabinetry. The kitchen is a particular delight, opening onto a picturesque al fresco courtyard dining space. A small guesthouse and second converted building on the property are licensed holiday homes for rent offering a source of income for the new owner. See more of the life-changing estate.
