Exceptional Luxury in Minnesota

With 500 feet of privately owned river frontage (with a dock) this stunning home in Minnesota overlooks the St. Croix River and is set on 17 acres. “The setting is spectacular,” says listing agent Sharon O’Flannigan of Coldwell Banker Realty. “It is completely private and secluded.”

Architecturally designed and built by Vujovich Design, the home features exceptional use of quality materials and details, creating a warm, inviting environment. “The great room, dominated by a stone fireplace, provides intimate spaces for conversation and relaxing,” says O’Flannigan.

Listed for $2.236 million, the home features a pool, pool house, pond and fire pits. “This home would be ideal for a family or couple who enjoy the outdoors, wildlife and the joy of navigating the magnificent St. Croix River,” says O’Flannigan. “It is a home to create memories in a naturally beautiful setting.”

A home is a true reflection of a person’s lifestyle. Crystal Pointe, nestled among the Lake Tahoe landscape in Nevada, is no exception.

“It’s built in harmony with this environment and is in the contour of the land,” says Susan Lowe, vice president and corporate broker with Chase International Luxury Real Estate. With over 16,000 square feet, Crystal Pointe offers stunning views of the lake throughout, with the main foyer featuring large floor-to-ceiling windows and absolute privacy all-around.

In essence, the home is meant to incorporate the beauty and elements that Lake Tahoe encompasses. From the hand-carved cedar beams to the outside fire pit and waterfall, the home puts Lake Tahoe’s outdoors on display while linking people to the area’s nature and spiritual lands.

“The connection to Mother Earth through the water, through the sun and the essence of our souls is found in this property,” says Shari Chase, president, CEO and luxury specialist of Chase International Luxury Real Estate. “The property takes into consideration all the elements of the surrounding land and the stunning views of Lake Tahoe.”

The two funiculars on the property provide a 360-degree view of the sugar pine trees, bald eagles and cascading land that envelope the property. A continuation of the main residence, the beach house, sits further down the mountain, allowing for direct access to the lake below. The crisp air breathes into the beach house through the deck that connects to the main level, bringing the outside in. The dining area features a 2,400-year-old alligator juniper tree table, while fossils scattered in the sandstone flooring add finishing touches to this spectacular addition.

Crystal Pointe embodies the lushness and vibrancy of Lake Tahoe and pays homage to the unrefined environment. Put simply by Chase, this home is for “people looking to enhance the quality of their life.” Crystal Pointe is listed at $75 million.

The new residential villas will feature an open concept with floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to ample private terraces.

Chileno Bay Resort & Residences, Los Cabos’ premier beachfront resort and residential villa community, will expand its real estate offerings with the fall 2018 unveiling of 28 new beach-front villas, 12 new hotel rooms and suites and a variety of social and culinary amenities for owners and guests.

Since opening in January 2017, Chileno Bay Resort & Residences has seen strong sales numbers and high occupancy at the award-winning Auberge property.

A sprawling 22-acres above one of Cabo’s coveted year-round swimmable beaches and part of the prestigious 1,200-acre resort community of Chileno Bay, the resort is comprised of a private beach club and a three-tiered infinite swimming pool with an oceanfront hot tub and fire pits.

The new residences will provide future buyers more options to stay at this luxurious resort with the introduction of two-bedroom villas, penthouses and additional four-bedroom villas.

“Our goal with the new villas is to offer the most exciting new ownership opportunity in the destination and bring a new level of luxury to Los Cabos,” says Mark Cooley, a partner of SV Capital Partners — developers of the resort.

With simple, direct forms, the villas are clean, light and airy. The new homes feature an open concept with floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to ample private terraces. Ground-floor villas all have private, in-ground pools and spas, while upper-level villas have Jacuzzis on the spacious, open-air balconies. All residential villas are equipped with indoor-outdoor gourmet kitchens with Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, immaculate finishes and fixtures and distinct artisanal furnishings and artwork.

The developers are also introducing new community amenities that appeal to the whole family — specifically, more opportunities for young adults to meet peers and simply have fun. The result is the new Young Adult’s Club, a casual space for gathering with a recording studio, gaming center, onsite photography coordinator and mocktail bar. Other new enhancements around property will include a coffee shop and an additional dining venue.
