Toast the Sunsets on Clearwater Beach

Located on Clearwater Beach, an award-winning stretch of Florida’s western coast, rests Pura Vida: the height of coastal luxury living. This stunning hideaway offers its residence with privacy, serenity and spacious units unlike any other.  These twenty-two luxurious condominiums overlook the Gulf of Mexico and a white sand beach that's frequently considered one of the best in the United States.

 

Pura Vida is situated at the quiet north end of Pinellas County’s gorgeous, two and a half mile long barrier island, and is just a stroll away from fine shopping and dining. Each unit in the intimately scaled, boutique-style building features three bedrooms, three and a half baths, and balconies for toasting brilliant sunsets. “It’s complete turn-key,” says project manager Kal Patel, of Avalon Land Holdings, LLC, the building developer.  “Tremendous thought and research went into the contemporary layouts and appointments.”


Spacious and open with ten-foot ceilings and floor to ceiling windows, the fixtures, flooring, and appliances are all high-end.  Gorgeous spa baths feature exotic stone tiles; living room wet bars include wine coolers; and Thermador appliances are specified for the sleekly modern Euro-styled kitchens.

During this build out phase, upgraded packages will be available, with buyers able to specify Miele appliances, for example. “We want to make sure the end users will be happy,” says Patel.


Individual condominiums are priced from $985,000 to $1.4 million, depending on the size of the units, which range from 2200 to 2900 square feet. The property is attracting interest from both & ldquo; snow birds & rdquo; and residents of nearby Sarasota, Naples, and Tampa, says Patel. With the ground scarcely broken, five units have already been reserved.  

Amenities include a resort-style pool with spa jets, a well-equipped fitness facility, a spacious club room for parties and relaxation, 24-hour security, air conditioned storage and covered parking for two cars per residence.

Luxurious Makena Estate - Maui, Hawaii

Located at the southern part of the south resort district of Maui, adjacent to Wailea, is Makena, “a very special place that is hard to describe unless you’ve been there,” says Tom Tezak, Maui real estate specialist and co-owner/broker with Wailea Realty.

Situated in Makena Place -- a gated enclave containing 10 luxurious homes -- is an exquisite 4 bedroom with 2 en-suites upstairs including the master and two downstairs, 4.5 bath, 4,000-square-foot oceanfront retreat recently renovated with stunning detail. The .28-acre lot is the most sought out location within the community with a secluded side yard and easy access to the ocean where you can launch your kayak or paddleboard.

From the moment you walk through the impressive glass front door into the gracious open entry, you're enveloped by the feeling of the warmth and luxury of this island oasis. Travertine floors are throughout the open lower level, expect for carpet in the bedrooms.  Your gaze is immediately directed to an expansive wall of sliding glass pocket doors. Cool ocean breezes sweep through the home when these doors are open, creating an indoor/outdoor space between the living room and covered deck. Here you can captivate your days poolside and watching turtles and whales just off the shore.

A gorgeous wrought iron and wood staircase wraps around to the upper level where you'll find the spacious guest ensuites and master retreat. The master bedroom is a grand island bungalow with grass cloth ceiling and doors that open across the front of the room to a balcony overlooking the picturesque ocean. The master bathroom also has a private, floor-to-ceiling view of the water from the soaking tub.

"I love the home, property and location," says current homeowner of 4950 Makena Place. "But the best thing about this property is the onsite property manager." Having been on site since the beginning, the property manager understands the nuances of Makena Place and meticulously handles all the details of your home.

 

Entertain guests at either the complex's private sport court with a game of tennis or basketball or the beautiful, hidden crescent beach. Although the community elicits the feeling of living on a remote part of the island, you are a 6-minute drive from some of the best shopping, dining and activities in all of Hawaii.

Many proclaim it to have no equal.

Lake Arrowhead, California

By Caitlin Duffy

Lake Arrowhead, California is a mountain resort community in the beautiful San Bernardino Mountains located just east of Los Angeles. Centrally located to Southern California’s key areas, LA is just an hour and a half away, Palm Springs one hour and Newport Beach is just a two hour drive. 

An exclusive private lake surrounded by multi-million dollar waterfront estates, the surrounding neighborhoods range in price from $200,000 for cabins and lodges to multi-million dollar prices for the finer homes and estates.

The community’s premiere Lake Arrowhead Country Club is open from the beginning of spring to the end of fall, featuring all the expected amenities of a high end country club. The golf course frontage is adorned with $2 million-plus estates.

Many know Lake Arrowhead as the "jewel" of the Mountains. The mountain scenery surrounding every lot is truly glorious, and options for activities in the area are limitless. The lake allows for water skiing, boating and fishing. There is also a yacht club and marina.  

At an elevation of approximately 5,300 feet, the weather remains generally mild despite a lower latitude. All four seasons can be enjoyed in full without many extreme days, with most offering a clear blue sky and fresh mountain air.

The mood of the community is very friendly and inviting, while also very upscale. Overall, the community is a quiet one, with many part-time residents using these estates as a vacation or second home. With its proximity to Los Angeles and the theatrical community, it even provides a close escape from the Paparazzi. 

full service community in every aspect, Lake Arrowhead boasts educational opportunities ranging from grammar schools to private and religious schools, as well as Rim High School. Those who are interested in making Lake Arrowhead their partial or full time home should consider Belle Maison. Located on the east side of the lake in a quiet, exclusive gated community, Belle Maison is on a large and secluded parcel. One of the most architecturally significant properties off the lake, it won’t be on the market for much longer.

Magnificent Mid-Century Modern Manor

By Natalie Friedmann

Chatham, MA is a beautiful seaside town at the southeast tip of Cape Cod, known as the elbow of Cape Cod.  The town’s prime location, being surrounded on three sides by Pleasant Bay, Chatham Harbor, the Atlantic Ocean and Nantucket Sound caters to various water activities like fishing and sailing.  In fact, Chatham still has an active commercial fishing community and one of the most iconic Lighthouses on the East Coast. 

Currently on the market is an impressive home built and designed by skilled artisans who also happen to be descendants of the founder of the town of Chatham. The design of the home pays homage to the Cape Code style fused with a modern, transparent interpretation.

The site is on a large 2.5 acre lot, with an adjacent 40,000-squarefoot lot included in the sale. A wilderness preserve is on the east side of the property as well as a paved private lane along the western border. The exterior of the home is stunningly simple, simultaneously combining a natural yet cultivated look with the use of natural materials such as stone, cedar and copper. 

“The home exhibits exquisite superlative craftsmanship, ideal for someone who appreciates sophisticated design & architecture,”says listing agent Phyllis Nickerson Power of William Raveis Prestigious Homes. 

The residence was specifically sited on the lot to welcome bright light through the impressive floor-to-ceiling windows. The views from the various rooms throughout the home give you the feeling of being engulfed in nature, evoking a feeling of serenity. During the winter months, it has been compared to living in a snow globe with the sparkling snow swirling around the glass windows. 

The home is equipped with Smart Home technology including, but not limited to, features such as smart lighting and HVAC control, motorized roller shades on the doors and windows, in-floor radiant heat throughout the home, audio visual systems and even bathroom town warmers. 

Other desirable amenities include exquisite landscape planting such as hydrangeas and perennials, a breakfast deck and sun deck, outside shower and detached storage barn, to name a few. This property is one you’d truly have to see to believe as words cannot do the design and features justice.
