Our friends at TopTenRealEstateDeals.com have rounded up an amalgam of notable homes currently up for grabs.
Read on for our top five picks of the bunch, from a condo in the heart of Georgia, to a bright New York penthouse complete with a green sanctuary.
HGTV’s Urban Oasis Home
When army veteran Dan Cavanaugh won this 2,091-square-foot condo in Atlanta, he couldn’t believe it. His two-bedroom, two-bath prize includes an oversized master suite with a sitting area, a morning bar, a spa bath, and a dressing room. As beautiful as the residence is, however, the apartment can’t accommodate the rancher’s beloved horses, so the Scottsdale native has decided to put the luxury digs—which boasts an expansive balcony—on the market for $1.725 million.
Decorated by interior designer Lindsay Pumpa, the home is decorated with an extensive collection of artwork and finishes by local artists and craftsmen. Its gourmet kitchen includes stainless steel Miele appliances, marble and Silestone® countertops, a marble backsplash, and open seating around its kitchen island, not to mention a walk-in pantry with lots of storage space.
Located at The Residences at Mandarin Oriental, the fully-furnished home’s residents will enjoy 24-hour concierge service, valet parking, security and key control, in-home dining and catering, housecleaning, laundry, and dry cleaning services, and private car and airport transportation, along with access to the hotel’s spa facilities, fitness hub, and saltwater pool.
Santa Fe’s Colorful Homes
Showcasing panoramic views of the Sangre de Cristo and Jemez Mountain ranges, this contemporary gated estate—now priced at $5.9 million—sits on 13.58 acres on a ridge overlooking the Santa Fe Opera House.
Boasting a structure inspired by the concentric building layouts of the Anasazi people, the 7,200-square-foot home—which consists of five bedrooms and six baths—is outfitted with many walls of glass and open living terraces. Its curved walls and 31 nichos are ideal for displaying an extensive art collection. The home was constructed out of many organic materials including slate, hardwood, glass tile, glass, and granite that combined, raise traditional Southwest style to a whole new level. The property also includes a separate guesthouse, which is simply a miniature version of the main house.
New York Penthouse with Greenhouse
Situated within the pre-war Greenwich Village building on Lower Fifth Avenue’s Gold Coast, this bright three-bedroom, three-bath penthouse once belonged to late landscape painter Jane Freilicher and her family for over 50 years.
Now listed for $7.7 million, the residence features a wood-burning fireplace, beamed ceilings, and panoramic views. More importantly, however, it touts three massive terraces on two floors on top of a 1,000-square-foot greenhouse on its roof with its own large terrace, allowing residents to grow their own produce year-round, and enjoy the ultimate in urban outdoor living.
Houston Gold Mansion Auction
Poised in the upscale Woodlands community of Carlton Woods right outside Houston, Texas, this mansion—known as Colonial Haven—overlooks the 17th green and 18th fairway of the Nicklaus gold course.
Going up for auction on March 26th with no reserve, this 12,000-square-foot residence is comprised of five bedrooms and seven baths and sits on 1.5 acres on a tranquil cul-de-sac. Along with several elegant formal spaces, it features a paneled den, six fireplaces, a catering kitchen, and a large game room with a $60,000 golf simulation system. Outside, there is also a covered terrace with an outdoor kitchen, a television, ceiling fans, and a heated pool with a sun shelf, not to mention an in-pool pub table and an eight-person spa.
Joan Rivers’ Manhattan Penthouse
Late comedienne Joan Rivers‘ Fifth Avenue penthouse—a boutique condo housed in an erstwhile Gilded Age mansion that was converted into an exclusive nine-unit residential in 1930—is still on the market for $28 million.
Along with four bedrooms, the opulent residence—which oozes old French-style grandeur—boasts several large entertaining areas, including a ballroom and music room with 23-foot ceilings. Among the 5,100-square-foot triplex’s many cool features are antique columns, crystal chandeliers, and golden antique boisserie paneling. As Rivers’ used to say, “It’s what Marie Antoinette would have done if she’d had the money.”
