Aug 25, 2015  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

For $17.8 million, you can pretty much start your very own community by purchasing the three-acre Little Hawkins Island in Sea Island, Georgia. The homes were built by previous owner Del Masters (a Silicon Valley tech entrepreneur), who wanted his own private resort to relax with his friends and family. Overall, from planning to interior decorating, the property took seven years to complete and includes four buildings: The Residence, two guest cottages and The Club (which includes a gym and a club room with a bar).

Though the structures—which are being built near Battersea Power Station—won’t be finished until 2017, we know that the stunning aquarium-like pool will be 25 meters long (around 82 feet), five meters wide (16 feet) and three meters deep (which is nearly ten feet). It goes without saying, but this pool definitely isn’t for anyone who is afraid of heights!

Jeff Bridges' $29.5M Montecito Estate is Up for Grabs

Jul 22, 2015  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

Jeff “The Dude” Bridges has moved on from his Montecito, CA estate, making the $29.5 million home available for a new owner. Not only is it pretty rare to find a property of this size (the lot spans 19.5 acres) in the area, Bridges and his wife Susan bought the house from musician Kenny Loggins way back in 1994 and raised their three daughters there—meaning that those walls have a lot of cool stories to tell.

Jul 21, 2015  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

In the best and perhaps most beautiful example of mankind’s desire to return to Mother Nature, Open Platform for Architecture has designed the conceptual Casa Brutale.
