St. Barthelemy, St Barth Properties Sotheby’s International Realty
One of St. Barth’s most luxurious beachfront estates, this seven-bedroom property is set on the beautiful powdery white sands of Lorient Beach. The enormous pool and covered terraces wrap around the villa providing easy access from all sides. As you pass through the large living area and the gourmet kitchen you enter a large courtyard with private spa, outdoor bar, and direct access to each of the five, equal master suites. Not enough space? A two-bedroom caretaker house is set by the property’s entrance with room for further expansion.
This manor house on more than 29,000 square-feet features over 70 rooms, including staff accommodation, internal and external leisure facilities, a two story garage, and tennis court. Inside, take a relaxing swim in the stunning pool, or bring the cinema experience home in the luxurious theater. Within this estate, feel enveloped by nearly every amenity imaginable.
Unique amongst the best ocean front estates, this striking home designed by renowned architect Barry Berkus presents one of the most dramatic settings along the entire West Coast. Stunning white water views are offered from each of the four-bedroom suites with fireplace and private deck, two lofts and all public rooms, as well as the various ocean-side terraces, all perched directly above the churning Pacific. This spectacular, nationally recognized home is ideal for entertaining, both inside and out. Minutes away from the charming Village of Carmel-by-the-Sea toward the Big Sur Coast but a world away from the tourist crowds.
Situated on 67 acres, Linden Hill is notable for its world-class architecture and its very private, park-like setting. Designed between 1928 and 1931 by Edmund B. Gilchrist for stockbroker Rodman Ellison Griscom, the property was owned for more than 50 years by the Dorrance family of the Campbell’s Soup Company. Enter the very secluded grounds and travel past fenced pastures and stone outbuildings reminiscent of the quaintest of French villages. At the end of a narrow walled lane, the magnificent manor house and cour d’honneur reveals itself, a majestic example of French Normandy-inspired design of breathtaking scale and symmetry. Pass through the courtyard entry where brick chimney stacks on guest houses cleverly frame the main house, and behold a truly historic mansion, beautifully maintained with complete respect for its origins, yet offering every modern amenity. Its grand-scale formal rooms offer elegant and easy, expansive or intimate entertaining spaces. Private quarters are equally inviting with family living quarters that accommodate guests for short-term or extended stays. Beyond the main house are two pools, a pool house, tennis court, and a beautiful aviary, all set within absolutely stunning gardens and grounds.
