The annual pace of Canadian housing starts fell 22% in November, according to the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. The agency said the seasonally adjusted annual rate of housing starts in November came in at 212,624 units, down from 272,264 in October. The rate of starts in Montreal was down 30%, while Toronto and Vancouver both saw a drop of 39%, driven by significantly lower multi-unit building. Penticton Herald

Simple Australian Coastal Cottage Asks Upward of A$2 Million

A humble 1960s coastal cottage in New South Wales, Australia, might not look like luxury at first glance, but its coveted location makes the property a top-notch offering and it’s on the market with a price guide of A$2.1 million to A$2.3 million (US$1.4 million to US$1.5 million). The property is in Brunswick Heads, a beach town 15 minutes north of Byron Bay, and consists of a three-bedroom cottage behind a wire fence and a separate, two-bedroom apartment. Agents suggest the cottage could be transformed into a “luxurious coastal retreat.” Domain

Pop Singer Sabrina Carpenter Buys Recently Updated 1930s Hollywood Hills Home

Singer-actress Sabrina Carpenter has snapped up a newly redesigned Los Angeles home in the Hollywood Hills. The former Disney star paid about $4.4 million for the nearly 3,500-square-foot home, which was initially listed for just under $4.8 million. Design-developer duo House of Rolison purchased the 1930s house nine months ago for $2.3 million. They reimagined the dated space by adding design details like wide plank oak floors, vaulted oak ceilings, vintage Spanish Revival-style lighting and arched windows looking out toward the city. The four-bedroom home sits on a full half-acre, a rare amount of space in the hills. Robb Report

London Homes Over £10 Million Have Sold at Fastest Pace in Eight Years in 2023

Uber-luxury home sales in London registered their highest showing in 2023 in eight years, according to a report from Knight Frank. There were 175 deals for homes priced at £10 million (US$12.7 million) or more annually in November, the data showed. That’s down from the 2014 record of 225 transactions, when high-end sales leapt just before the introduction of higher rates of stamp duty for properties above £1 million. However, the annual total for 2023 is set to be even higher, as a number of big deals go through in December, including the £138 million purchase of a Mayfair mansion by Indian billionaire Adar Poonawalla, known as “the vaccine prince” due to his family’s vast vaccine factories.
