Get a Jump on SFís Real Estate Trends & Snatch Up This $2.9M Oakland Hills Estate

Nov 3, 2015  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

There is always a new hotspot when it comes to luxury real estate and while San Francisco continues to rise, it may not be where the hip kids go in the future. According to real estate whiz Roh Habibi, Oakland is actually the new Brooklyn and several big tech companies are moving in, which is bringing in thousands of jobs. The influx of buyers is changing Oakland’s less-than-stellar reputation, turning it into a serious up-and-coming area for millennials. Take this stunning estate at 13383 Campus Dr., for instance.

Oct 27, 2015  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

Living up high with the trees is a dream for many, especially when that home faces the ocean and was designed specifically for you. When the Gooden-Nahome family wanted to make that dream a reality on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, they looked to Benjamin Garcia Saxe. Even though the site proved challenging, since it is on a steep slope and the water can only truly be seen from the mid-upper area, the architect made it work. The finished project is called Casa Flotanta and is a stunning treehouse-like structure that relies on posts to give the impression of floating.

Conquer Your Fears Between Spa Treatments: Here's What it's Like to Live at The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain

Sep 7, 2015  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

The drive from San Diego to The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain in Marana, Arizona includes some major temperature spikes and terrain changes—you get rocky mountains, unforgiving deserts (including one that doubled for Star Wars’ Tatooine), and miles and miles of Saguaro cacti. Though the thermostat may jump from to a suffocating 115 degrees by the time you hit Yuma, it’s alright because Marana seems to be at least 15 degrees cooler than its neighboring towns and cities.

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).

As an example of something that probably looks much scarier than it actually is, London’s Nine Elms neighborhood will soon have a glass-bottomed Sky Pool that will sit 10 stories off the ground, stretched between two luxury Embassy Gardens residential buildings. 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!

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.
