The word bachelor pad tends to evoke leather sofas, lounge chairs, giant entertainment centers, and a fully stocked bar. But more and more single men are proving that living solo doesn’t mean forsaking a stylish home. AD has put together some bachelor pads from their archives to inspire a contemporary and cool twist on traditional masculine style.
When a Manhattan bachelor purchased a piece of land on Martha’s Vineyard, he turned to architecture and design firm Ashe + Leandro to create the perfect getaway. The great room displays selections from his extensive art collection, including works by, from left, Howard Hodgkin, Sterling Ruby, Aaron Young, and Rashid Johnson; the bespoke ceiling lights were created in collaboration with the Urban Electric Co., the sofas and slipper chairs are by Christian Liaigre, and the striped pillows are by Ralph Lauren Home.

Before settling down with model Behati Prinsloo, singer Adam Levine resided in a chic Hollywood Hills home decorated by Mark Haddawy and outfitted with classics by 20th-century-design icons. The living room is a well-edited haven of vintage pieces: a Dunbar sofa in Maharam mohair velvet, a Stilnovo floor lamp, a Jean Prouvé cocktail table, a Hans J. Wegner Ox chair, and a Ludwig Mies van der Rohe daybed. The pillows are covered in antique Caucasian textiles, and the carpet is 1920s Persian.

Designer Peter Dunham worked with film producer Steve Tisch on the redecoration of his 1932 Paul Williams house in Beverly Hills. Basquiat's Trumpet is displayed above a custom-made sofa in the living room; the cocktail tables are vintage French, and the 1940s floor lamps are by Jacques Adnet.

Entrepreneur Derek Mattison called on design collective Commune to renovate his 1960s Los Angeles home. Reclaimed-oak paneling gives the double-height living room a rustic air; a dark custom-blended Benjamin Moore color on the beams and trim lends contrast. The floor lamp on the far left was custom made by Downtown, and the cocktail table is by Alma Allen for Commune. A Vladimir Kagan Contour chaise from Ralph Pucci International is upholstered in gray cashmere, and the overscale floor lamp is by Bottega Veneta; the cowhide rug is from Blackman Cruz

Designer Tino Zervudachi of Mlinaric, Henry & Zervudachi worked with local sources to restore and furnish Nat Rothschild’s bachelor pad in Rio de Janeiro.

In the master bedroom of investor Yoon Kim’s Manhattan bachelor pad, which was designed by David Mann and Brett McMullen of MR Architecture + Décor, the floating bed by Robert Bernstein is dressed in Calvin Klein linens, a mink coverlet by ER Fur Trading, and a throw from ABC Carpet & Home.

Architect Frederic Schwartz and designers Tony Ingrao and Randy Kemper collaborated with Donny Deutsch to renovate his 1889 Manhattan townhouse. In the living room, a George Condo painting is displayed above a custom-made sofa, one of a pair upholstered in a J. Robert Scott silk mohair. Next to the Venfield zebra chair is a gueridon by Hervé Van der Straeten; the curtains were made using the reverse side of a Kravet fabric, and the cowhide rugs are from Stark Carpet.
This beautifully landscaped 6 acre home in Buckinghamshire is the Old
Jordans residence, a stunning 18th century period manor house with a
Unlike the typical super estate, the 10-bedroom home features a
modern open plan design with ample space to house even the biggest of
car collections, most notably in a spotlight space located in between
living and dining areas.
Secondary accommodation is also available across the Japanese-style
gardens, while a beautiful swimming pool and additional leisure
facilities offer plenty of options for winding down and relaxing.
The residence is currently listed at a whopping $19.5 million USD.
The gated community of Meriwether Ranch is far from the hustle and
bustle of any major city. With its world-class fishing and hunting, this
secluded neighborhood is a welcome respite for those seeking a break
from city life.
“This is a place where you can experience wildlife on an almost daily
basis,” said listing agent Laura Sacchi of Big Sky Sotheby’s
International Realty. “It’s not unusual to see a herd of elk, deer, the
occasional black bear or grizzly bear, or wild cats.”
In keeping with its wild surroundings, the interiors of this
Meriwether Ranch home are adorned with fishing and hunting memorabilia,
including a trophy room featuring a large, stuffed bear.
The property, which belongs to a family of outdoor enthusiasts from
Colorado, includes an unusual perk: a high-end kennel and dog shower
designed for the family’s hunting dogs. “Even the hunting dogs get very
luxurious treatment in this home,” Ms. Sacchi said.
The 6,375-square-foot house has five bedrooms, four full bathrooms
and one partial bath. The home also features a modern kitchen and a game
While the home sits on one acre—relatively small for homes in rural
Montana—Meriwether Ranch gives residents the opportunity to explore the
great outdoors. Most of the 724-acre community is undeveloped, and
access to hunting and fishing is a big draw for potential buyers.
The Big Hole River runs past the home’s backyard, and can be seen
from the living areas. The property includes an outdoor fire pit.
The home is one of many on Meriwether Ranch, which is accessible via
two suspension bridges that stretch over the Big Hole River.
While the community is located in a rural area, the small college
town of Dillon is just a 15-minute drive away. Butte, which has air
links to Salt Lake City, is one-hour away.
As Montana becomes more attractive as an alternative to Jackson Hole
and Aspen, nearby properties—with their world-class outdoor
attractions—have enjoyed increasing popularity.
