Santa Barbara Real Estate could be a wonder of the world in its own graceful way. Sandwiched between the ocean and the mountains, the town is painted with beautiful homes. It doesn’t hurt to window shop, however, and admire some of the most unique homes outside of the lovely American Riviera. Here are a few places on the market that just may make your jaw drop.
Menalapan Megamansion: This is a 16-acre, $195 million, 33 room, 47 bathroom home in Lantana, FL. With a sweeping, 1200 foot private ocean front yard, botanical garden, a sports complex, treehouse, and more, the home for sale is full of luxurious real estate add-ons that one can typically only imagine!
Former Danny Thomas Estate: Formerly owned by the late comedian, Danny Thomas, this $135 million abode is nestled in the often stigmatic town of Beverly Hills. With gold-leaf ceilings, this 18000 square-foot mansion has seven bedrooms, ten bathrooms, and $2.5 million worth of Baccarat chandeliers.
Fifth Avenue Flat: A duplex co-op on the well-known 5th Avenue in New York City, this $96 million real estate offering is no stranger to fine luxury. Equipped with a library, wine cellar, Central Park views, and 20 rooms, it is easy to get (literally) lost in this city dwelling.
Thimble Islands: Yes, plural. This 8-island estate is actually 8 different residences encapsulated as one $78 million piece of real estate. With a variety of landscapes across the archipelago, the luxury is easy to spot. Arriving, however, is not so simple, as it takes a 20 minute helicopter ride from Manhattan.
These homes may not be on our list of potential purchases, but they sure are fun to look at. Beyond the shiny and sparkly add-ons, however, many of these homes are valuable because of the area in which they reside. For Santa Barbara real estate, this is a perpetual perk!
