Many luxury homes feature pools; it seems that the addition of a cabana can make a real splash. We happened upon several properties that offer this unique amenity, each in its own distinctive setting.
Given the name “Fairholme,” everything about this palatial estate is done on a grand scale. The historic oceanfront property spans over four acres along Newport’s legendary Gilded Age coastline. With 16 bedrooms and twelve and a half bathrooms, it’s safe to assume that there is plenty of room for guests, and who wouldn’t want to visit this extraordinary property?
The home has a ballroom that can seat 120 people for dinner, the only private residence in Newport, Rhode Island that is capable of hosting a crowd of that size. Bespoke details can be found at every turn; intricately molded plasterwork, silk wall coverings and a massive limestone fireplace help set the tone inside this one-of-a-kind estate.
Equally stunning is the outside of this property; with jaw-dropping ocean views, impeccably manicured gardens and state-of-the-art lighting and sound systems, visitors are sure to be dazzled. The pool area has a covered veranda, a bar and not one, but two heated marble cabanas, both with full baths and heated floors.
Heading to the United States’ opposite coast, we discovered The Ultimate Landmark Urban View Estate. Tucked away in a quiet cul de sac in highly coveted Banker’s Hill, this sublime property is a private oasis with a spectacular view of downtown San Diego.
Designed by Master Architect, William Sterling Hebbard in 1908, this incredible home was expanded and totally reimagined in 2007 with meticulous attention to every imaginable detail. The master suite has dual bathrooms, closets and offices. It also features a gym, a 500+ bottle wine cellar and a chef’s kitchen. Should the chef decide to take things al fresco, he or she will be delighted to find a Viking Kitchen outside.
It’s easy to understand why one would want to be outside at this lovely home; it is quintessential California living at its absolute finest. With over an acre of lush grounds, the property features a glimmering pool and cabana just perfect for open-air entertaining.
Venturing 7,000 miles away, we are enchanted by this Aegean Seafront Home. Looking almost as if it had been carved out of the mountain itself, this architecturally significant estate overlooking Yalikavak Bay is located on the Bodrum Peninsula. It’s widely considered to be the most prestigious part of the Southern Coast of Turkey.
Flawlessly fusing traditional Mediterranean architecture with the natural wonder around it, the home has awe-inspiring vistas from every window and terrace. Featuring a master suite with a large walk-in wardrobe and Juliette balcony, this home also has two additional en-suite double bedrooms.
Perhaps the most captivating element of this property is the exceptional outdoor entertainment area. A stone terrace offers both shaded and sun-kissed spaces, with a cabana that has a shower and changing rooms. The infinity pool has not-to-be-believed views of the bay below; orange and pink sunsets provide a splendid backdrop, whether you are entertaining guests or luxuriating on a chaise lounge counting the cottony clouds above.
