By Wes Grover

With the launch of the newest issue of LPI Magazine just days away, we look back at the property features from our October 2020 edition, with locations in New York, New York; Upper Cape Town, South Africa; and Cashiers, North Carolina.  

Spectacular Penthouse In Upper West Side Landmark

New York, New York, USA | US $13,975,000

At the newly constructed penthouse at 498 West End Avenue, however, there are no compromises to be made. Set atop an Upper West Side landmark designed by renowned architecture firm Neville & Bagge in 1910, the two-floor residence blends the best of prewar craftsmanship with contemporary artistry across 3,646 square feet of immaculate living space. An additional 3,002 square feet of exterior space is provided by four separate terraces, allowing one to create their own private oasis for relaxing or entertaining with family and close friends above the city. Web ID: JZTE

Luxury Lodge In North Carolina

Cashiers, North Carolina, USA | US $6,500,000

For those who covet natural beauty and an active lifestyle, it’s incomparable. And for those in search of a world-class residence that caters to all of this, Blue Bear Camp is, quite simply, as good as it gets. A one-of-a-kind wilderness retreat bordering the national forest, this 8,516-square-foot home boasts a level of craftsmanship rarely seen. Reminiscent of the grand lodges of the early 1900s, with the wild Chattooga River running directly through the property, the house itself is a work of art created by skilled artisans from across North America. Web ID: MIPS

Casa Garita – Historic Hacienda Goes Contemporary

San Miguel de Allende, Mexico | US $2,950,000

In the heart of the city, set along one of San Miguel’s quintessentially picturesque streets, Casa Garita gives access to this enviable lifestyle and much more. Hidden behind an unassuming outer wall, the splendor of the residence is on full display as you enter into a massive courtyard set amidst the property’s original 18th-century, hacienda-style structure. Showcasing an artful balance of historic craftsmanship and modern luxury, its first impression is simply breathtaking. Web ID: WMXN

A Connoisseurs Choice For The Discerning Buyer

Constantia Upper Cape Town, South Africa | R32,000,000

With its idyllic surroundings and fertile soil, the property soon embraced the valley’s burgeoning wine tradition and a series of buildings were constructed in the Cape Dutch style where wine was stored in wooden casks. Today, most of these buildings — referred to as wine cellars — have been transformed into a five-star resort, known as The Cellars-Hohenort, that caters to travelers longing to visit the world-class vineyards now found here. Yet, one such cellar was sold off separately and converted into a private residence that feels like a resort of its own. Web ID: TUTH
