This unique modernist villa has an idyllic location in the exclusive Quinta da Baroneza, a gated resort community just an hour’s drive from São Paulo. The 13,487-square-foot, six-bedroom home has a fluid layout for seamless indoor-outdoor living. Vast glass walls in every room showcase views of the golf course and the surrounding countryside.

This private residence on Oneloa Bay (also pictured top) is set within the exclusive gated community of Kapalua Place in West Maui. The 7,800-square-foot, five-bedroom home was designed by the current owner, maritime artist Christian Riese Lassen, to capture the essence of indoor-outdoor oceanfront living and entertaining. Among the highlights is a grand hall with 25-foot-high motorised glass pocket doors that open to the lush grounds, a tropical haven with an infinity pool and rock waterfall, two hot tubs, wet bar, grilling station, and private access to the beach.
Encircled on three sides by the Pacific Ocean, with water views stretching to the horizon, Casa Millas commands a premier vantage point on three acres in the exclusive enclave of Rincon in Careyes, Mexico. Designed by renowned architect Manolo Mestre to be at one with its dramatic setting, the property features five unique semicircular pools which optimize sunset and sunrise ocean views. Another standout feature is the master suite, a separate, 1,000-square-foot, circular structure with a private roof deck and terrace — essentially a private island in one of the estate’s pools.
