Luxury Living: Homes by leading interior designers

From New York to Montana to Valencia in Spain, 5 exclusive homes created by sought-after interior designers — all from Christie’s International Real Estate

This grand estate in the most exclusive suburb of Phoenix is set on 12 acres with views of Camelback Mountain, the McDowell Mountains and Four Peaks. The home's living areas are the creation of celebrated interior designer David Scott, whose goal was to “create an elegant dream in the desert”. Amenities include a home theatre, an indoor basketball court and a three-bedroom guest house.

Award-winning architect Jerry Locati designed his private estate as the ultimate family compound. The 7,929-square foot main house has three bedroom suites, there’s a 1,943-square-foot guest house and a spectacular “man cave”. Akin to a luxury mountain resort, the 21-acre grounds feature waterfalls, a recreation lake, plunge pool, golf and archery ranges, and an entertainment area with a fireplace, fire pit, heated patios and surround-sound audio.

This classic Hamptons estate exudes style throughout. The 9,000 square-foot, seven-bedroom residence features chic interior decor by New York architect and designer Campion Platt. Highlights include a master suite with a balcony and a recreation level with a home theatre, gym and billiards room. Surrounding the home are 1.6 acres of landscaped grounds with a pool house, an oversized gunite pool, a spa and a sunken tennis court.

This luxury apartment offers panoramic city and East River views from its lofty position in one of New York City’s tallest buildings, One Beacon Court, just across the street from Bloomingdale’s. Completed in 2005, the residence was decorated by New York–based interior designer Richard Mishaan and featured in his book, Modern Luxury. It boasts floor-to-ceiling windows, two en suite bedrooms, and a state-of-the-art Poggenpohl kitchen.

This exclusive villa enjoys a prized location within El Bosque golf and country club near the city of Valencia. It features nearly 10,000 square feet of sumptuous living areas decorated by Spanish designer Vicente Navarro. Complementing the six-bedroom, five-bathroom villa are tranquil gardens with a resort-style pool, and El Bosque club’s 18-hole golf course, equestrian centre and gym.
