Stunning Villa La Plage in St. Barth

With powder-white sand and turquoise waters that offer tranquil swimming and world-class surfing, this gated seven-bedroom property — set on beautiful Lorient Beach — is one of St. Barth’s most luxurious beachfront estates.

“This property represents an extremely rare opportunity to purchase a beachfront estate in St. Barth,” says Tom Smyth of St. Barth Properties Sotheby’s International Realty who is listing the property for 35 million euros. “We generally see an opportunity like this once per decade.” 

Features include wraparound terraces providing easy access to the interior from all sides, a stunning pool, a spacious living area, a gourmet kitchen, and five equal master suites are all accessible from the courtyard.

Additionally, the expansive courtyard encompasses a private spa and a bar, and a two- bedroom caretaker’s house is located near the entrance. The property allows for expansion.

Designer Diane Durocher quoted “Adventure, curiosity and exploration are what opens young minds to infinite possibilities” as the inspiration for the boy’s bedroom in the home. Choosing a color palette and furniture to grow with the child, Durocher explains the room represents a child’s curiosity about world, travel and life. Featuring an en suite bath, the bedroom is the perfect space for growing and learning.

Just blocks from Lake Michigan and approximately 16 miles from the city of Chicago, this Georgian Home in East Winnetka, Illinois has the luxury and elegance of 1918 updated with the magnificence of today’s standards.

“This home would be perfect for anyone that is into older homes with architectural details we don’t see today, but still has all of the updates and attributes of 2021,” says Lisa Kowalenko of Keller Williams Momentum, who is listing the property for $2.85 million. “It’s warm and inviting everywhere through the home, while still being spacious and efficient.”

The home features six bedrooms and four full and one half baths and an exquisite master suite with an incredible dressing and closet area that is the envy of the North Shore. Outdoors, the private country club-quality yard boasts a terrace, pool, and a hot tub to help create a lifetime of memories. “As you walk through the property you can almost feel the glory,” says Kowalenko. “This is definitely a true gem.”

Offering 100 feet of private beach frontage on Lake Michigan in Norton Shores, this two-bedroom, two-bath cottage showcases three miles of beautiful Lake Michigan shoreline.

“The property is contiguous to the P.J. Hoffmaster State Park, so no one can build to the left of the property — and you can enjoy private walks along the beach, miles of hiking and skiing trails and kayaking in the summer,” says Bradley Wisk of Keller Williams Harbortown who is listing the property for $1.5 million.

The home has been recently restored and features include a teak deck leading to the beach, an open floor plan, a chef’s kitchen with luxury appliances, a bath with a large walk-in shower and jetted bathtub, and a lower level with two bedrooms, a full-bath, and  laundry room.

Using the homeowner’s collection of antique wooden panels depicting the 12 zodiac symbols, designer Sam Ciardi created a Southeast Asian designed dining room. The room is a warm and cozy space, according to Ciardi with Samuel Robert Signature Spaces, who chose to center the room around a custom dining table.

Every inch of the zen-inspired room breathes life into the space, from the abundant green plants to the dark, earthy ceilings, to the bespoke credenza painting. The “deep bold, ‘Palm Frond'” transports you to the perfect paradise that encompasses a tropical, tranquil elegance.

Live among the rare Bosphorpus mansions in Istanbul, Turkey in this seven-bedroom, four-bath Andonaki twin mansion (built in 1890).

“What makes Istanbul the city is its history,” says listing agent Sühran Aras of Coldwell Banker-Baras. “Its charm has remained unchanged over time — since the Byzantine period and even earlier times — which signifies the value of the city. A life on the Bosphorus, where you can feel Istanbul in your bones, is the most prestigious way of life you can ever have here.”

The home is close to the Bosphorous bridges and private pier and the main entrance opens to the pier and front garden.

“There are only a few places in the world like Istanbul where you can feel the past in every corner of your home while living a modern life,” says Aras who is listing the home for $9 million. “This mansion offers the opportunity to admire the Bosphorus from every room, including the living room, which has direct access to the terrace.”

 The home also features a heated wave pool, Turkish bath, and an elevator.

“This home is for those who want to be in touch with nature and admire the enchanting beauty of the Bosphorus, all while residing in the city center,” says Aras.
