Your Muskoka Legacy Awaits

On 40 acres with approximately 550 feet of prime south exposure shoreline, Bellevue Estate is a jaw-dropping luxury lake house on Lake Rosseau in Muskoka, Ontario, Canada. Enjoy a coveted sand beach, 2-story boat house with a dock and gazebo shaded seating area, art studio, tennis court, massive sports field, private winter ski hill/snowboard park and a treehouse jungle gym with zip line through a secluded forest. 

 

Inside the 18,000-square-foot home, entertainment abounds with a Muskoka media room (made from reclaimed timbers salvaged from a 19th-centry shipwreck on Lake Huron), a live music private bar and games arcade, a movie theater, and a fitness center with a hotel-grade sauna and yoga/massage studio.

 

“The home offers a cool, laid back vibe that is surprisingly intimate, unpretentious, and hip,” says listing agent Ross Halloran of the Kolbuc Halloran Team of Sotheby’s International Canada.

 

Listed for $14.95 million, the home also features 14-plus bedrooms, 10-plus bathrooms, a soaring great room with a 35-foot vaulted ceiling and two stone fireplaces. The main-floor master bedroom showcases an airy 30-plus-foot ceiling with a five-piece en suite, including a claw tub. There is also a separate butler/caretaker residence with a full bath. 

 

This home would be perfect for a multi-generational family with many friends and business associates who would like to visit one of the last grand estates in Muskoka. If The Great Gatsby owned a lake house in Muskoka, this would be it.

Home of Dean Martin for Sale

Jeff Hyland and Drew Fenton are thrilled to present The Glazer Estate, located in Beverly Hills, California. Totaling approximately 27,500 square feet, the massive concrete home with a modern museum-style aesthetic was completed in 1995, and has since replaced the longtime home Dean Martin originally purchased in the 1950s. The property was most recently owned by late real estate developer Guilford Glazer and his wife, Diane Glazer.

“Offering an exclusive Beverly Hills lifestyle, this rare gem is the ultimate in refinement and architectural prowess,” Hyland says.

Beautifully situated on 1.6+ acres in the most prime neighborhood of Beverly Hills real estate, Mountain Drive is arguably the best street in the city, making The Glazer Estate a world-class home in a world-class location.

Guests are instantly greeted by a long, private driveway surrounded by park-like grounds. With no expense spared, The Glazer Estate makes entertaining on a grand-scale seamless, with the ability to host over 1,000 guests.

From large teak doors to a two-story atrium and theatrical water elements, only the highest level of quality is showcased throughout the residence. The open floor plan allows guests to flow between the grand formal dining room to the glass-enclosed junior dining room, formal living room, and an exceptional water lounge surrounded by ponds on all sides.

The lavish master retreat is a world unto itself, with dual baths and closets. Other standout amenities include indoor and outdoor pools as well as a ballroom.
