Our friends at TopTenRealEstateDeals.com have rounded up a sweet mix of noteworthy homes across the globe, from actress Faye Dunaway's elegant two-story home in West Hollywood and a picturesque brick home in Virginia, to a "soaring" abode in the Lone Star state.

#1: Faye Dunaway's Hollywood Home

Legendary Hollywood star Faye Dunaway just sold her West Hollywood duplex for $1.45 million, having initially purchased the property for nearly a fifth of the price almost 20 years ago.

Part of a hedged duo totaling four bedrooms and three baths spanning 2,437 square feet, the newly-renovated home features a barrel-tiled roof, stuccoed walls, and lush greenery flowing out of every arched opening, along with intricate crown moldings.

#2: Fabulous Home in South Africa

South Africa is a nation like no other—a blend of game reserves, safaris, and wine country, set in a year-round temperate backdrop.

Now on the market in Johannesburg, this four-bedroom, six-bath home—listed at $1.275 million—features five living areas that lead out to a heated pool and gardens. Touting a curvilinear design, the glassy residence has a newly redecorated kitchen along with a separate bar and wine room, making it ideal for entertaining. It also has staff quarters, a detached studio, and a four-car garage.

#3: Texas' Soaring Wings

Sited on one-and-a-half acres, this Winn Wittman-designed abode in Austin—known as "Soaring Wings," due to its unique shape—is a modern blend of copper, stone, steel, and glass.

With 6,100 square feet of living space, the four-bedroom, six-bath home—currently asking $5.95 million—has curved and angled walls of glass that overlook lush green hills from nearly every room, including the chef's kitchen and family room. Outside, there are also ground-level terraces and an oversized saltwater pool adorned with fountains. The estate is so breathtaking, that it was used as the set of an yet-to-be-named film currently in production starring Ryan Gosling and Natalie Portman.

#4: On the Ocean in Kennebunkport

Located in the peaceful fishing village of Kennebunkport in Maine, this 5,882-square-foot home—now on the market for $4.25 million—sits on a two-acre swath at Marshall Point, and features a 207-foot stretch of private beach.
