Beginning with a prestigious gated estate in New Jersey to a sprawling mountain manor in Switzerland, this month’s collection of exceptional properties for sale features homes in some of the world’s most sought after destinations.
New Jersey – Located in the prestigious and private gated Estates at Alpine, this magnificent estate home, among the most preeminent and elegant of its kind, is located on almost 13 acres. Only minutes from Manhattan, the estate includes a 13,000 square-foot English Manor-style residence, a carriage house, English gardens, aviary and a private stocked pond. Renovated twenty-five years ago, this home, with its classic Palladian influences, now affords the extraordinary opportunity to make it your own.
St. Barthelemy – Gouverneur Views is the combination of three villas; Villa Mirage is a three bedroom home with an oversized infinity pool and expansive pool deck, Villa Boudoir is one bedroom with an open-air kitchenette and a bar located on the pool terrace and Villa Reflet de la Mer is a gorgeous two bedroom villa that offers a contemporary take on traditional West Indies design and a breathtaking view of Gouverneur Beach. The pool is the focal point of the outdoor living space and the villas are just a short drive to pristine Gouverneur Beach and close to Gustavia’s shops and restaurants.
Beijing – The Powerful Mountain project is a quintessential masterpiece developed by R & F Properties Group. The mansion is a detached single house, a truly astonishing unrivaled estate in its scope and architectural form. The property is located within the second ring, the most lively area in Beijing. Inspired by the Baroque Era and imprinted with its signature sophistication, refinement and luxury, this home is surrounded by a Baroque garden and is completed by a indoor swimming pool, wine cellar and home theater.
Tel Aviv – Located at the top of one of Tel Aviv’s best residential properties is The Penthouse, an over 16,000 square-foot residence surrounded by sea and skyline views. This masterful and magnificent redevelopment is set within the 19th-century buildings that once housed Jaffa’s French Hospital. Mindful of its heritage as one of Tel Aviv’s iconic historic landmarks, the project seamlessly blends the W Hotels’ signature amenities with architectural features from the original building. Designed by world-renowned architect John Pawson in collaboration with local architect Ramy Gill, the duo tastefully transformed the 2,000-year-old historic foundations uncovered during the construction into inviting public spaces. All of the residences are located in the newly constructed wing adjacent to the main hotel building with a private entrance and easy access to the diverse, high-quality services and amenities at the W Tel Aviv.
Geneva – This manor estate is surrounded by eight hectares of beautiful grounds. The property is remarkable for its absolute tranquility, unobstructed view of the Alps and the peak of Mont Blanc, and exceptional spaciousness. The property includes a number of leisure areas such as a private nine-hole golf course, a pool with pool house, a tennis court, a bowling court and a playground area in the woods with chalet. The house offers almost 1,000 square meters of habitable floor area and a basement.
