"Not only was this exquisite 1957 midcentury-modern home designed by renowned desert modern architects Donald Wexler and Richard Harrison," says listing agent Keith Markovitz of Compass Real Estate, "it’s located in an intimate Rancho Mirage community master-planned by legendary architect William F. Cody. One of a cluster of 10 homes in Thunderbird North, the sleek low-slung house sits on over half an acre of land and is wrapped in spectacular mountain views from sunrise to sunset. Simple board-and-batten siding wraps the exterior and extends indoors, and two natural rock walls echo the linearity of the house. Wexler, known for his masterful use of light and shadow, always said his buildings were designed to live with the environment, balancing orientation and views."
"Designed by the renowned architect Bruce Goff, the Searing House blends minimalism, whimsical features, and the feeling of being in nature," says listing agent Katherine Lee of Bash & Co. Sotheby's International Realty. "With all sides of the home surrounded by windows or sliding doors, and the central triangular skylights in the middle, the home also offers features such as wood dividing doors that meld into one another to enlarge or shrink the space, and a central fireplace. On the market for the first time since its creation, this piece of art has been meticulously maintained by the same family since its construction."
"This French Normandy townhome in Walter C. King’s landmark Chateau Beachwood was designed in 1937 and was reportedly built by Warner Bros. to house their starlets (legend has it, this list includes Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich, Madonna, and Marilyn Monroe, who is said to have lived in this very unit)," says listing agent Marlena Maidhof of Acme Real Estate. "Enjoy a sun-soaked living area with oversized casement windows and strip oak hardwood floors, leading through to the formal dining area and all-white kitchen that features stainless-steel Bertazzoni stove and a microwave, wine fridge, and Fisher & Paykel dishwasher drawers. Beyond the kitchen is the laundry room with a stacked washer and dryer and a back door leading out to a stoop and beautiful gardens."
"Coral Caye is a beautiful, secluded island retreat. This island, located eight miles and approximately 25 minutes by boat ride from Placencia, Belize, has been featured in several magazines including Land and Travel and Caribbean Culture and Lifestyle," says listing agent Peter McLean of the Corcoran Group. "The great house features a sand floor and indoor/outdoor living rooms, while several other newly built cottages are also available. Each unit comes complete with multiple solar panels, which are hooked into a battery and inverter system."
"Once owned by Steve McQueen, this astutely renovated architectural home is perched on its own bluff behind gates in the coveted Victoria Point community," says listing agent Elizabeth Donovan of Coldwell Banker Realty. "With oceanfront decks and unparalleled views from Broad Beach to Point Dume, this iconic residence has been reimagined to harmoniously bring the outdoors in. The main level’s kitchen, dining, and living rooms seamlessly transition to the expansive decks hovering above the Pacific. The primary suite with fireplace and spa-like en-suite occupy the second level. An additional primary suite occupies the lower level, and is outfitted with a soaking tub and oceanfront deck. The property’s private staircase to the sand with nearby coves and miles of shoreline to explore, provides the quintessential Malibu beach experience."
