Amagansett, New York | Rylan Jacka, Sotheby’s International Realty – East Hampton Brokerage
Combining classic Hamptons charm with clean contemporary style, this one-of-a-kind five-bedroom estate consists of two cedar-clad barnlike buildings anchored by a center structure offering a great room, a dining area, and a well-appointed kitchen that open to the grounds, the pool, and pool house. Secluded in a private wing, the owner’s suite includes a spacious bath featuring two vintage-inspired pedestal sinks, eye-catching floor tile, and an inviting soaking tub with ornate feet and an idyllic treetop view.
Santa Fe, New Mexico | Ricky Allen & Cathy Griffith, Sotheby’s International Realty – Santa Fe – 318 Grant Avenue Brokerage
On 2.5 acres of gently rolling land just 10 minutes from the historic Santa Fe Plaza, this 3,363-square-foot adobe home enjoys expansive views in every direction. Among the highlights are gallery space, a living room with a fireplace, a wonderful open kitchen, a bookshelf-lined library or study, covered patios, a courtyard, and other magnificent outdoor spaces. One of the two bedroom suites includes a bath with a relaxing claw-footed soaking tub and a door that opens to the rugged grounds and fresh Southwestern air.
Sag Harbor, New York | Holly Hodder, Sotheby’s International Realty – Southampton Brokerage
At the end of a private drive, this custom Shingle-style manor offers more than 7,000 square feet of exceptional living and entertaining space—a living room, a formal dining room, an open-plan family room, and a dine-in marble-clad kitchen—as well as alluring outdoor areas and a refreshing pool and spa. The regal owner’s bedroom has a balcony, a fireplace, and two baths—one an elegant aerie with a freestanding claw-footed tub enjoying a serene spot beside its own warming wood-burning fireplace.
In a tranquil spot on a tree-lined street in Houston’s storied Woodland Heights, this delightful four-bedroom home combines the unique stylistic appeal of a Creole cottage with plentiful contemporary amenities. Richly hued hardwoods and other classical details accent nearly every space, from the paneled library and the wine “grotto” to a luxurious owner’s bath with a spacious shower and a generous footed soaking tub. The backyard pool and spa remain secluded thanks to a manicured ivy-covered wall.
San Francisco, California | Rebecca Schumacher, Sotheby’s International Realty – San Francisco Brokerage
Part of a beautifully reimagined three-residence Victorian building in San Francisco’s popular Inner Mission neighborhood, this four-bedroom flat has been outfitted with smart home features and offers a spacious great room, a chef’s kitchen, a family room atop a spiral staircase, and access to a private deck overlooking a shared patio and colorful backyard. The primary bedroom suite includes a sunny bay window, a walk-in closet, and a luxurious bath with dual sinks, a shower, and a classic freestanding soaking tub with claw feet.
