To be a guest and at home simultaneously? Yes, it is, indeed, possible to contemporaneously experience both pleasures. Visualize yourself on holiday at a friend’s estate and sleeping in one of the most luxurious guest houses in the world. Such a guestdom is more than its walls, rooms, bespoke fixtures and indoor space. It also serves to encapsulate the landscape and encompass the lavish luxury lifestyle.
The most grandiose guest quarters include views of the bluest waters or vistas of magnificent mountain ranges. Spacious clear skies with striated clouds and the yellow sun serve as the backdrop for certain theatrical settings: sunrises, sunsets and soirées.
Purple mountain majesties and amber waves of bliss are experienced year-round at this luxury guest house. You’re able to partake in clam bakes celebrated on the beach, the toasting of gourmet s’mores over an oversized fire pit or yachting on the waters.
Walk through gated acreage in order to experience paradise with your friends, and socialize on a massive stone patio surrounded by manicured green lawns. The utter beauty -vast and endless- invites the indoor spaces, with exceptional materials and design, to extend beyond the walls of windows. Panoramic views are magnified. Nothing is ordinary about these guest quarters.
A palatial mansion with five-star amenities remains unsurpassed when it comes to entertaining. And a pivotal reason as to why is the grand guesthouse perfectly situated on the property. You must discover the spellbinding guesthouse, as well as the evening parties that occur there, where a few legendary icons would happily be recalled to life. Visualize Andrew Carnegie captivated in conversation by John D. Rockefeller; Coco Chanel stroking her pearls and fraternizing with Jackie Kennedy Onassis. Bill Gates and Warren Buffet would also be in attendance at these Gatsby-like parties in order to share modern-day triumphs. These soirées are where the magnates, industrialists, philanthropists and the wealthiest of the wealthy socialize, schmooze and sensationalize luxury living. You can further relax and imagine Rockefeller raising his champagne glass and making a toast: Don’t be afraid to give up the good to go for the great.
Envision in the afternoons that you watch the other guests dive into the pool or, at high tide, take in the sun on the yacht, abandoning the hot sands of the beach. You hear the motor-boats glide across the waters, leaving behind a wreck of foamed swells.
