Wilhelmsberg, with its almost 150 years of history, and its 22 rooms with a total area of 700-square-meters, is undoubtedly one of Gothenburg’s truly unique private homes. The house is located on a huge beautiful garden plot with an area of 3,378-square-meters, with bushes, trees and fountains, as well as a grand four-car garage. In 1865, Julius Lindström, a wholesaler of snuff and tobacco, bought the property from James Dickson and built a summer residence in the Renaissance style, inspired by a castle in Normandy. He retained the services of renowned city architect, Victor von Gegerfeldt and the building was completed around 1868. Lindström also beautified the park in the style of an English garden, and adorned it with fountains and statues. Lindström was an important man in Gothenburg, and at times was a city councilman and member of parliament, as well as being known as a public benefactor.

Architectural Digest: 5 Incredible Properties for Sale Around the World

Whether you’re in the market for a summer getaway or an alpine escape, a property steeped in history or something with a modern twist, one of these five newly listed estates is bound to catch your eye. Nestled on a forested peninsula in southern Sweden, the opulently restored Fogelvik Castle sits on land that once belonged to a 15th-century king. Another pedigreed gem encompasses 50 lush acres in Yucatán, Mexico; currently a luxe bed-and-breakfast, the 17th-century Hacienda Katanchel was refreshed by architect Aníbal González and designer Mónica Hernández. And in Tuscany, two storied parcels are being offered as one sumptuous 12-acre compound that includes a four-bedroom main villa, a 1647 chapel, and a studio that once served as the atelier of avant-garde Dutch artist Karel Appel. Meanwhile, two modern homes in the U.S. boast stunning designs by high-profile architects. In 2009, on a sprawling 105-acre spread just outside of Vail, Colorado, AD100 talent Annabelle Selldorf crafted a refined structure embellished with copper brise-soleil, masonry siding, and pine beams. For the more beach-inclined, there’s a serene ipe-clad residence in Provincetown, Massachusetts, that was completed in 2013 by the esteemed New York firm Hariri & Hariri Architecture.

Set on a private peninsula some 140 miles south of Stockholm, historic Fogelvik Castle was designed in the 18th century by Carl Hårleman, the father of Swedish Rococo style, on land that in the 1400s was home to the country’s King Charles VIII. In 1995 the current owners undertook a painstaking restoration of the three-story castle’s period details, among them murals by artist Jean Baptiste Masreliez. The verdant three-acre property includes a pair of spacious detached wings—with guest quarters, a grand entertaining hall, and a sauna—plus a summer cottage.

Perched high on a dune at the tip of Cape Cod, this 2013 house overlooks Pilgrims’ First Landing Park, the storied stretch of sand where the Mayflower originally docked in 1620. When conceiving the striking building, the Manhattan firm Hariri & Hariri Architecture looked to a more recent past, taking inspiration from the Bauhaus. (Walter Gropius designed the landmark 1959 residence next door.) Clad in Brazilian ipe wood and gray stucco, the two-story home features a dramatic asymmetrical roofline, double-height window walls, and a sleek glass-and-steel bridge connecting the bedrooms on the second floor.

For the design of this 2009 alpine getaway—located on 105 pristine acres just outside Vail—AD100 architect Annabelle Selldorf took cues from the surrounding swath of White River National Park. Floor-to-ceiling windows frame the rugged landscape (the best views are from the three-level tower), while at the center of the dwelling is a lush courtyard that Selldorf envisioned as an intimate counterpoint to the sweeping vistas. To infuse her sophisticated aesthetic with a decidedly rustic edge, she used local materials, from fieldstone to copper to pine beams.
