REAL estate lovers rejoice — here’s your chance to check out some of the most luxurious properties on the market around the world. But before you fall in love and plan a move to somewhere exotic, be sure to check the prices, as they’re as jaw-dropping as the homes to which they belong.
Oozing modern luxury, a new property at Marbella boasts a dream location just minutes from the glamour of Puerto Banos with nightclubs, ultra expensive shopping, and restaurants.
Set in an exclusive gated community, the villa offers five bedrooms and six bathrooms (one with a marble bathtub with ocean views), and with four floors to service, a lift is an absolute necessity in this Sotheby’s listing.
The living room with a fireplace opens out to a terrace, the perfect place to soak in stunning views over the infinity pool to the blue of the Alboran Sea.
Entertaining will be easy, with the pool house, designer kitchen, and formal and informal dining areas. Stylish touches like a cinema room and wine cellar complete the luxury.
COSTA DEL SOL, SPAIN
This Golden Mile villa on the Costa del Sol is truly a home for the rich and famous.
Completely refurbished, no expense was spared in the works, with the result an ultra-modern, stylish beachfront home. It has 14 bedrooms, 12 with ensuites. The master suite brings new meaning to the idea of luxury, with an enormous freestanding bath, marble tiling, a gas fireplace in the bathroom, and private garden outlook, plus ample wardrobe space and a retreat area. The property boasts two pools, both resort-style: one heated and adjacent an outdoor lounge with bar, the other huge and surrounded by decking.
Both enjoy uninterrupted views of the sea, as does many of the bedrooms. Set on a double block, the home, offered through Sotheby’s, has a gym, sauna and staff quarters.
LINCOLN SQUARE LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM
Designed around a garden court, a new residential building in an ultra expensive pocket of London will breathe new life into a very old, prestigious neighbourhood: think Bloomsbury Set, and the Sloane Rangers.
The choice of apartments ranges from studio, one, two, three and four bedroom apartments and penthouses.
Take your pick of residences in the north, east, south or west wings, each with unique outlooks to either the internal courtyard or over surrounding landmarks.
The building was designed to offer the comfort of a luxury hotel, with a concierge desk, multiple pools, private dining rooms, cinema and kids’ room.
