Matthew Perry's Malibu Contemporary

With incredible views of Malibu Beach, the pier, and the Pacific Ocean, the 5,500-square-foot world-class stunner sits on 2.3 acres of land in Malibu’s Serra Retreat, and features four bedrooms, six baths, a sleek designer kitchen, and plenty of space for outdoor entertaining.

Its expensive decks, swimming pool, and spa with adjacent fire-pit combine to create the epitome of indoor-outdoor California living. The master bedroom has luxe his-and-hers baths, a seating area with a fireplace, and a window seat overlooking the Pacific. The home is also equipped with a game room, a home theater, and a garden area, as well as sound systems both indoors and outdoors. The home’s smart house security and automation are on the cutting edge of today’s technology. With walls of glass overlooking gorgeous views, the funnyman’s property is undeniably incredible.

Last Mizner Home in the Northeast

Built of stone and stucco, Addison Mizner’s opulently designed 1912 “Rock Hall” home—presently priced at $3.495 million—is located on a 23-acre estate in Colebrook, Connecticut.

Last Mizner Home

On the National Register of Historic Places, the estate was meticulously restored in 2005 by its current owners, who updated the home’s mechanical systems and appointed the property with 21st century luxury amenities while leaving all the intricate Mizner design details intact. Among the 8,578-square-foot residence’s key components are five bedrooms, seven baths, and a great room with walls in coffered panels of chestnut, a vaulted-beamed ceiling and a large fireplace (one of seven), with the original mantel piece still intact. A number of reception rooms also radiate from the home’s great room.

Other rooms consist of a large formal dining room, a library, rock-walled sunroom, a billiards room, a media room, and a grotto-styled wine cellar. A tearoom is accessible through a secret-panel door, and opens to a Mediterranean-style patio. The chef’s kitchen is outfitted with all high-end appliances, as well as a repurposed original icebox that is now the entry into the space’s walk-in cooler. Two more floors house bedrooms and the sizeable master suite, along with a gym, a game room, and full staff apartment. The property’s grounds are lushly landscaped with mature rare specimen trees, and shrubs, and touts a lawn with a pool, tennis courts, a pétanque court, and a freestanding yoga studio.

Aspen Home with Mountain Views

This glamorous, privately located home sits on the outskirts of Aspen, on one of the ski-town’s most popular streets at the edge of a wooded pond.

Aspen Mountain Home

Now being offered for $41.25 million, the 11,437-square-foot residence sits on 2.5 acres of land, providing ample room for entertaining or daydreaming by the pond. With six bedrooms and ten baths, The Ponds—a full-time or vacation residence for year-round activities—has more than enough room for extended family and friends to share. Completely away from the main living area is a children’s wing with staff quarters and screening room, while the living room, sitting room, dining room, and recessed bar flow around a large two-sided stone fireplace.  Located at the foot of Red Mountain, the overlooks views of Aspen Mountain through its large, panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows.

Santa Monica Mountains Compound

Nestled on a very private swath of 48 acres, previous owners took great pains to mold this rare California property into the peaceful sanctuary it is today.

Santa Monica Mountains Compound

Surrounded by views of a private lake, colorful gardens, and stunning views of the Santa Monica Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, the home possesses a very tranquil and serene vibe. From every angle, flowers bloom brightly, ancient trees provide shade, and the sound of water splaying over rocks into the lake provides a natural calming effect.

There are a total of six structures on the 12,000-square-foot property including the main house, a caretaker’s house, a maintenance building, a guesthouse, a covered pavilion near the lake, and the tennis pavilion, all surrounded by lush flora. High up a hill are two 50,000-gallon water holding tanks fed by a well on the property—one used for the lake and irrigation, and the other as a backup used to feed six fire hydrants around the property, should they ever be necessary. In addition to this excellent safety precaution, the lake is a barrier to wildfire.

Once listed for $40 million, the estate—located near Los Angeles—will be auctioned off on June 28th, with a reserve of $14.5 million.

Dracula’s Castle La Paloma

This breathtaking castle was actor Bela Lugosi’s home back in his Hollywood days.

Located in Beachwood Canyon on approximately a quarter of an acre, Dracula’s Tudor-style brick mansion—on sale for $4.197 million—overlooks marvelous views of Palos Verdes, Long Beach, Beachwood Canyon, and the Hollywood sign. Measuring in at 5,000 square feet, the fully restored home—which still touts its original sumptuous detailing—has five bedrooms, six baths, a ballroom-sized living room, a family room, a formal dining room with iron windows, a spacious master suite, an eat-in chef’s kitchen, and a service wing. The interior’s rich details include original tile work, inlaid floors, handmade ironwork, finished beam ceilings, inlaid Italian slate floor entries and foyers, mahogany doors, a gated motor entry, and a slate roof.
