Love this contemporary so much, I made it my profile picture for Facebook and Twitter. Dubbed The Glass Pavilion, this 5 bedroom, 5.5 bathroom is architecturally amazing. Boasting 14,000 square feet of living space, a wine cellar, space for 32 vehicles, and 2 fireplaces, I truly have never seen a home like this. The unique manse, built this year, has a stunning, modern interior with views of the beautiful, 3.5 acre plot, which was bought for about $3 million in 2005. Beyond comparison, and unlike anything I have ever seen before. I realize that I do, usually, only post properties that are new-to-the-market, but this place is so impressive, I thought I had to share.

Situated on a 1.18 acre parcel, in Westlake’s prominent Vaquero golf community, this 5 bedroom, 4.2 bathroom Mediterranean features, for all who like to dance, a very unique “disco tech.” With a stunning, contemporary interior, the 7,800 square foot estate boasts a cabana, pool with swim-up bar, game room, 4 car garage, 4 fireplaces, fitness center, and, included in the sales price, a country club membership. Built in 2006, the magnificently designed residence has a very open, lofty feel and beautiful concrete floors. The backyard, which is just as impressive as the interior, is perfect for all sorts of entertaining.

Hope everyone has a happy Thanksgiving!

$5,950,000 – Palm Beach, FL

While I’m not too keen on the facade of this Palm Beach estate, the interior is drop-dead gorgeous! Designed by Clarence Mack, the home, which is not far from the water, includes 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. Classy, yet casual, the 51-year-old, 6,500 square foot manse features a swimming pool, cabana, 12 foot ceilings, and 2 car garage. Located in one of Florida’s most affluent areas, it is very close to that $84 million spread, and many other notable homes. Like I said previously, the interior is just magnificent. At $6 million, someone will definitely scoop this place up, but still, it doesn’t, at all, compare to the Seattle residence we looked at yesterday.

$9,500,000 – Clyde Hill, WA

I’m a sucker for a Bentley! This Clyde Hill manse is probably the most well done, best designed property on the market right now. The 11-year-old, 12,000 square foot estate boasts 6 bedrooms, 7.75 bathrooms, and an “8 car auto salon.” Situated on a 1.11 acre lot, the home features many luxurious, fantastic amenities, such as a billiards room, swimming pool, screening room, and virtual golf simulator. The interior was very well put together, and I love the colors that the designer chose. While it doesn’t include an avocado orchard, like this place in Santa Barbara, the backyard is wonderful and great for entertaining.

$3,950,000 – Newport Beach, CA

Oceanfront living at its best! Featuring 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a stunning beachfront lot, and 4-5 parking spots, this $4 million property commands dazzling views of Catalina Island and the beautiful, blue water. The interior was fabulously designed, boasting a very tasteful, top-of-the-line kitchen. If I were to purchase this 29-year-old, exquisite Newport Beach spread, I’d probably spend most of my time relaxing on the patio or beach, peering out to the Pacific Ocean. A professional surfer would feel right at home here, since it is located on one of California’s best surf spots.

Situated on a 1.93 acre lot, this Tuscan palace was built with the highest quality materials available, in the year 2004. Boasting 7 bedrooms, 8.5 bathrooms, 11,000 square feet, a home theatre, game room, wine cellar, multiple fountains, gym, and swimming pool, the estate was once priced over $10 million, and with all of these amenities, I feel that it is worth even more than that. Some rooms are a bit dark, but overall, the interior was gorgeously designed. A stunning home, and true masterpiece. Wondering where you’ve seen this place before? Not surprisingly, it was featured in a few national commercials and print advertisements.

$6,500,000 – Rockleigh, NJ

Even though Oprah is not moving to New Jersey, hopefully someone will buy this 7 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom in Rockleigh. The estate sports 3 separate residences, a horse barn, 3 fireplaces, 3 garages, and a lush, 18 acre parcel. This compound appeals to me oh-so much because of its quaintness and charm, but yes, some renovations are needed. Inside the main house, you will find many beautiful, classical touches and, while there are no interior photographs of the other residences, they are probably quite similar. With a little TLC, this could be the perfect retreat for any city dweller.
