$ 4.995 million, 229 E. Serapio Drive, Telluride, CO 81435
A full day at the slopes deserves a soak in the hot tub, and at this luxury alpine abode, that’s just what you’ll find — plus a wine cellar, billiards room, movie theater, breathtaking mountain views, and 7,451 square feet of living space for you and your closest friends. Did we mention this six-bedroom home is just under a 25-minute drive to the famous Telluride Ski Resort? (If all those aforementioned friends are nowhere to be found now, they soon will be.)
$ 1.795 million, 4113 Leland St., Chevy Chase, MD 20815
Located just outside Bethesda, this 3,708-square-foot brick Colonial is a vision in white, both indoors and out. Ample windows and skylights enable the already-bright space to shine with increased intensity, and who wouldn’t want to cook up a storm in that fully loaded kitchen, overlooking the breakfast nook and backyard?
$ 16.9 million, 5840 Camino De La Costa, La Jolla, CA 92037
Want to live life on the edge? This gravity-defying Mediterranean-style mansion is perched just before the drop of an oceanside bluff in La Jolla, creating dramatic water views from nearly every floor-to-ceiling window. The 8,465-square-foot home is separated from the sea by a sliver of a manicured garden and an infinity edge pool that echoes the home’s endless-horizon views.
$ 340,000, 244 E. 53rd St., Savannah, GA 31405
A cute-as-a-button and newly renovated bungalow in Savannah’s desirable Ardsley Park neighborhood. How could you go wrong? Not only does this 2,402-square-foot, four-bedroom, three-bath home offer brand-spanking-new amenities inside (check out that master bath!), but it also sits on a corner lot at the intersection of two charming, tree-lined residential streets.
$ 3.45 million, 12693 Highwinds Road, Ojai, CA 93023
Combining the best features of a Napa Valley winery with the architectural elements of a Tidewater home in the Deep South, this 3,150-square-foot residence in Ojai was custom-built in 2006. Farmhouse-style furnishings and century-old wooden floors add to the home’s rustic appeal, while outside, numerous covered porches provide a peaceful place for sipping a cold glass of sweet tea — and overlooking the property’s orange groves, 60-foot lap pool, and the surrounding mountains.
$ 3.495 million, 935 Arcady Road, Santa Barbara, CA 93108
French doors from the second-floor master suite of this 3,838-square-foot hilltop estate in celeb-favorite Montecito lead to a private balcony overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Off in the distance, the foothills of the Santa Ynez Mountains are also in the frame. Needless to say, whoever pays the mortgage on this Cape Cod–style home will drink in some seriously spectacular views along with their morning latte.
$ 3.795 million, 1103 Camino Viejo, Montecito, CA 93108
Contemporary Zen meets the Mid-Century rancher in this four-bedroom home in tony Montecito. Trulia users on Pinterest can’t seem to resist its striking exposed wood beams, which stand in stunning contrast to the home’s bright white walls and ashy wood floors. We’re digging the Japanese teahouse vibe of the facade and abutting rock garden.
You’re familiar with craftsmans and Colonials, but what do you know about The Sea Ranch style? It’s an architectural style unique to the Sonoma County town of The Sea Ranch, which is quite likely one reason this 2,561-square-foot home attracts attention on Pinterest. Other explanations for its popularity? The home’s dramatic, light-filled interior, as well as its position within a private hillside meadow just beyond the reach of the Pacific.
Nestled within the exclusive gated community of Mira Vista in Fort Worth, this four-bedroom home makes a lasting first impression with its two-story formal living room, which is punctuated by a dramatic curved staircase and a picture window that spans more than half the height of the space. Still, the real selling points of the residence are more easily overlooked: the granite countertops in the kitchen, for example, or the slate tile and scraped hardwood floors that run throughout the majority of the 4,355-square-foot stunner.
