New York City
What’s Here: Feast your eyes on endless angles of the NYC skyline at this three-bedroom penthouse. From the inside, these panoramas act like murals framed in enormous arched windows with bronze detailing — but it’s on the expansive, near-80-foot loggia that the views level up to captivating. Wide-plank white oak flooring guides the way through this home’s over 2500 interior square feet, arriving upon many a standout space. The primary bedroom is a secluded sanctuary boasting direct loggia access and two tremendous walk-in closets. Its ensuite is imposingly luxurious, sporting textured marble and a carved stone soaking tub offering another window to those city vistas.
What We Love: Renowned architect Sir David Adjaye designed this modern Financial District high-rise, outfitted with several jaw-dropping amenities. Go one-on-one on the private basketball court, soothe body and mind in the spa and wellness center, catch the latest blockbuster in the private IMAX theater, and soak up the city on the communal rooftop terrace.

What’s Here: Stand under 14-foot-high great room ceilings, marveling at the scale of this Upper East Side carriage house as sunlight rains down through twin skylights. Ease through original steel sliding doors into a skylit dining room and serving kitchen with terrace access. A full kitchen sits one floor below in an English basement. If your face doesn’t yet resemble the heart eyes emoji, check in on the second-floor’s vast deck or revel in the third-floor-encompassing primary suite. The top floor’s glass-enclosed sitting room opens to a roof deck on two sides. Slide both sets of doors and create a unified space that’ll put you in even more rarified air.
What We Love: The history. Upon its 1908 construction, this carriage house was considered a “private garage,” built in anticipation of the Ford Model T’s impending arrival. The second and third floors were individual apartments, one inhabited by John and Olivette Ekin. John was chauffeur to Morgan Stanley co-founder Henry Sturgis Morgan while Olivette was the attendant of Morgan’s wife, Catherine Frances Lovering Adams, a direct descendent of John Adams.

What’s Here: A Brooklyn Heights home on Pineapple Street; how sweet it is. Yesterday and today blend as prewar craftsmanship like ceiling, doorway, and fireplace mantel moldings lend an eternal charm to the modernized home. On the parlor floor, enter a sculpture garden through the dining room’s dramatic ceiling-height French doors or the sunroom’s sliding glass one. The sunroom also acts as a heavenly breakfast nook, adjacent to a kitchen heavy on counters and cabinets. One level up, the primary suite wows thanks to a windowed bath and dressing room. Meanwhile, the finished lower level has a home office and wine cellar for business or social calls.
What We Love: You’d be hard-pressed to find a more distinct book nook escape than this home’s arched, wood-paneled library. To take your reading experience up a further notch, enjoy the room’s enclosed balcony, a perch overlooking the neighborhood and harbor.

What’s Here: Country character meets Hamptons maximalism at this Southampton estate. Things commence in a double-height entry hall, natural light draping onto the hardwood floors and grand staircase. From there, choose your own adventure over the home’s 7000 branching square feet. Each room pops with personality, painted or wallpapered in eye-catching tones and patterns. You’ll also spot glorious detailing throughout, such as wall wainscoting, crown moldings, and coffered shiplap ceilings. Stone terraces dot the stellar grounds, great for entertaining or letting the Hamptons’ brilliance wash over you.
What We Love: The finished lower level is this home is a spacious retreat under trayed ceilings. In addition to two of the home’s nine bedrooms, it hosts a billiards room, a screening room, and multiple bonus rooms to further maximize life out east.

What’s Here: A delightful five-bedroom estate in Bedford Hills, originally built in 1953, is set on two acres, with a grand porte-cochère, flagstone patio, and outdoor fireplace. The 5,400-square-foot house has an open kitchen/family room, a formal living room, and a formal dining room, each with their own fireplace. There’s also a wood-paneled library, which can be used as a home office. There’s an additional 2,977 square feet of living space in the basement, which includes a playroom or media room, guest quarters, home gym, two additional home offices, and separate closets for entertaining, skiing, and fishing gear.
What We Love: Built-ins include window seats in multiple bedrooms and the dining room, as well as extensive shelving throughout.

What’s Here: A five-floor historic brownstone, originally built in 1880, has it all: five bedrooms, three full bathrooms (and two half bathrooms), a parlor that connects to a separate wet bar, a library, a media room with a projector and surround sound system, a full gym, a meditation room, a home office, and an elevator. And that’s just the inside! The outside spaces includes a garden with a fountain, a deck, and a roof terrace with unobstructed views of Manhattan and the Hudson River. There’s also a two-car garage.
What We Love: The details really elevate this brownstone, whether it’s historic features like plaster moldings and medallions on the ceilings or carved marble fireplaces (now easily lit with gas); practical touches like a pot filler, double ovens, and double dishwashers in the kitchen; or just fun elements like a circular skylight on the top floor or a triangular, upholstered nook built into the office wall.

What’s Here: Lake Rogers gleams azure blue beside this Mediterranean-inspired Boca Raton home. Each of this residence’s five bedrooms claims a walk-in closet, an early indication of the luxuriousness omnipresent here. Behind an intricately imposing front door, the main level is a sprawling wonderland of columns and arches. The effortless open plan is suffused with sunlight and sits ready for gatherings of any size or purpose. Start and finish your day gazing out toward the water from an inviting dining nook. Or, if you have grander aspirations, venture to the upper level and step out onto an expansive balcony overlooking it all.
What We Love: Your outdoor area is the vision of South Florida living. The covered porch reprises the interior theme of columns and arches, boasts lounging and dining spots, and almost melts into a heated pool and spa. Bar seating only ups the tropical resort vibes. And, of course, there’s Lake Rogers, readily accessible via boat from a private dock.

What’s Here: This gorgeous European-inspired estate is an entertainer’s dream, with more than 8,600 square feet of living space, including four bedrooms and five full bathrooms (plus three half bathrooms), a great room with 20-foot ceilings, nine gas fireplaces, and a 1,200-bottle wine cellar with a cigar humidor. The property has a layout designed to highlight the best of an indoor-outdoor lifestyle, with space for poolside dinners under the stars or cocktails on one of the many terraces.
What We Love: The living is easy here, with lots of fun and useful features throughout — there’s pet shower in the laundry room, built-in bookshelves flanking a fireplace in the home office, an outdoor kitchen, a home gym, dual changing rooms in the pool-adjacent bathroom, and a rustically styled potting room with a farm sink for gardening chores or party prep.

What’s Here: Dating to 1869, this five-bedroom in the heart of Savannah’s Landmark Historic District was expanded and restored into a modern masterpiece melding historic charm, twenty-first century technology, and sophisticated style. The house is the epitome of Southern charm with a chandelier over a claw-footed bathtub in one of the six bathrooms, while boasting a modern sound system that plays throughout the house. There’s also two gourmet kitchens, three laundry facilities, expansive terraces, and an elevator.
What We Love: The property includes a cobblestone-paved garden that feels like a secret getaway, tucked away behind stone walls and ornate wrought-iron scrollwork, and which wraps around the house for a side patio, where there’s an outdoor sink and storage.

What’s Here: An remarkable and enormous unit at the top of a Parisian-style apartment building has four bedrooms spread out over a 5,700-square-foot interior space, with an additional 2,500 square feet of private outdoor space. The three large corner terraces are connected by a private walkway that surrounds the entire apartment, all of which is accessible through glass doors in every room. There’s a great room with coffered ceilings, which flows into the kitchen, dining room, and breakfast nook, and which opens to the northeast-facing terrace. There’s also an additional separate entertaining space, with its own bar, plus storage for 400 wine bottles. The primary suite has a sitting area, two walk-in closets, a terrace, and a bathroom with a soaking tub and a custom shower for two.
What We Love: The building, the Beauvallon, also has a large, shared deck that boasts landscaped gardens, a pool, fire pits, and a year-round hot tub. There’s also an on-site concierge, as well as restaurants, a gym, and a spa in the building, and is located close to all of downtown Denver.

What’s Here: This is a rare opportunity to own an entire building in Presidio Heights comprising two condos. On the upper level, there’s a two-level unit with three bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, as well as a media room, a home office with French doors, and a roof deck. The lower level has three bedrooms, one-and-a-half bathrooms, and the garden. Both units have retained many of the building’s original 1913 details, including crown molding, window seats, and multiple fireplaces, all elevated with the polish of modern renovations and conveniences, including two newly renovated kitchens. There’s also a two-car garage.
What We Love: The outdoor spaces for both units — the roof deck and the garden — are lovely, spacious areas with plenty of room for outdoor entertaining. The backyard has a paved seating area, along with a small terraced garden, lined with leafy ferns. The roof deck has a fire pit and an elevated area for grilling and dining, plus built-in lighting along the walls.

What’s Here: Experience understated luxury in this beautifully restored 1926 house in Honolulu’s exclusive Black Point neighborhood. The primary house has four bedrooms and three bathrooms, with lanais on three levels, and which connects to a one-bedroom, one-bathroom guest house via the elevator or a path through the lava rock garden, right past the koi pond! The bedrooms open directly onto the lanais — which built around living trees that arch through the decks — and onto the most splendid views.
What We Love: Black Point is one of the most coveted places to live in Hawaii, with just 31 amazingly sited properties within its boundaries. Even more tantalizing is Black Point’s incredibly photogenic (and somewhat secret) neighborhood pool: Built directly into the cliffs, the pool has a wild beauty, is only accessible to Black Point residents, and is just a five-minute walk from the house.
