High value assets are not only investments, but are often acquisitions of passion. Though one asset may be so small as to slip in a pocket and the other so expansive it fills the countryside, the two design forms continually inspire their existing and aspiring owners. Scarcity of similar quality and specialist marketing to the world’s most qualified buyers drives pricing in each category.

As part of our 2015 Luxury Defined report on the global prime property market, we explore the relative values of these passion assets, offered for sale by Christie’s and our real estate Affiliates across the globe.

Discover these 'perfect pairings' from the worlds of art, luxury goods, and property:
