New York City

What’s Here: Upper East Side allure as enduring as the neighborhood itself. Currently configured as a multi-resident building, this six-floor townhouse can level up into an eight-bedroom mansion. The facade — lightly colored with a copper bay window accent — begins a trend of visual appeal that continues into teak wood interiors by renowned Gilded Age designer and painter Lockwood de Forest. Marvel at herringbone and parquet flooring, six wood-burning fireplaces, and near-13-foot-high ceilings. Natural light flows freely throughout, notably through a charming south-facing conservatory that adjoins a formal dining room.

What We Love: The home boasts over 1,500 square feet of outdoor space, counting multiple terraces, a roof deck with Central Park and skyline views, and a back garden that evokes tremendous hidden oasis vibes.

What’s Here: Elegance is in the air up, down, and all around this Tribeca duplex penthouse. One end of the main level hosts a nouveau-stately living room, well-appointed with its gas fireplace and zebrawood bar. Around the corner is a dining room qualified for your grandest galas and most intimate of pizza nights, plus a custom cabinetry-outfitted chef’s kitchen. The upper level is entirely reserved for privacy, holding the home’s four bedrooms. Each non-primary bed has an ensuite bath, with the primary boasting two unto itself — each with radiant heat flooring. It also flaunts two dressing rooms and a separate seating area.

What We Love: Indisputably, this home’s highlight is its wraparound terrace. Viewable from most main level rooms, it’s even better to step onto — as fantastic for entertaining as relaxing with a good book. And with three seasons’ worth of blooms planted, the freshness it exudes throughout the year will never grow stale.

What’s Here: A classic c.1910 Park Slope brownstone that breaks away from the mold. Recent renovations, including work by AD100 architect Elizabeth Roberts, outfit this townhouse with a broad open concept living area atop walnut floors and beneath lofty ceilings. Casement windows brighten the kitchen, visually distinct with its green cabinetry and center island and an attention-grabbing built-in churrasco grill (installed in an original wood-burning fireplace) with floor-to-ceiling blue tile surround. From there, step out onto the newly refinished deck — with remote-controlled awning — overlooking a dreamy back garden.

What We Love: All-encompassing privacy on the second floor, entirely occupied by a primary suite boasting a marble mantel fireplace, built-in bookshelves, and a spacious walk-in closet with even more built-ins. The primary bath sports black and white patterned tile flooring, a deep soaking tub, and its own marble fireplace.

East End

What’s Here: Be one with nature at this ultra-modern Water Mill escape, one acre set on the Mecox Bay waterfront. An open-concept main level frames the surrounding serene landscape through floor-to-ceiling windows, blurring the line between interior and exterior. The kitchen — equipped with top-notch appliances, ample storage, and an extra-wide island — blends into a majestic deck that’ll be the site of many mornings, afternoons, and nights spent dining or lounging al fresco. Step from the primary suite onto a second private outdoor space, flaunting further glorious vistas and an outdoor fireplace.

What We Love: Enviable East End amenities abound, including an outdoor kitchen, a saltwater pool and spa, and a private dock for exploring the bay your way.

South Florida

What’s Here: Resort-style living typically only reserved for far-flung vacations. At this two-story villa — one of eight at the Ritz-Carlton Residences — the aura is five-star hotel meets tropical getaway meets luxurious waterfront home. Glass walls invite in the Sunshine State’s finest rays, suffusing a neutral-toned interior with unending warmth. Sliding doors on either end of the living room turn it into an open-air space that merges seamlessly with the exterior. Once outside, the sea is your oyster. It’s a swift trip from your private dock via Surprise Lake to Biscayne Bay in one direction and the Intracostal Waterway (and the Atlantic Ocean) in the other.

What We Love: Amp up your Miami Beach lifestyle with the Ritz-Carlton Residences amenities package. Enjoy a rooftop pool deck (in addition to the private pool at your villa) complete with cabanas and day beds. There are also studios for fitness and for art, a spa and sauna, personal chef service, and much more.

Northwest Florida

What’s Here: Escape to this amazing five-bedroom, three-story estate set on a private island in Panama City, just off the coast of Northwest Florida. Everything needed for the good life is available indoors and out, with waterfront views from every room and covered porches on every level. There are multiple spaces for living, dining, and just relaxing on each floor, whether it’s curled up in front of a fireplace or seated by the pool with a cocktail in hand. Set directly on the waterfront, you can jaunt off to dinner and back by boating directly home to the private, 350-foot deep water dock, with the Gulf of Mexico just 10 nautical miles away.

What We Love: The indoor and outdoor kitchens are well-equipped; the indoor kitchen has a professional six-burner range with double convection ovens, filtered cold and instant hot water at the sink, as well as a wet bar with a wine refrigerator. The outdoor kitchen has a grill with a rotisserie, dual cooking burner, warming oven, and a waterfall island.
