From a contemporary Malibu estate with a tropical indoor-outdoor garden to a luxe villa in Turks and Caicos with a jungle for a backyard, the grounds and gardens of these six incredible estates will inspire your inner green thumb.
Tucked behind gates on a private street in Malibu next to some of So Cal’s best surf breaks, this newly designed contemporary estate, represented by Cooper Mount and Sandro Dazzan, brings a tropical island vibe to the iconic beachside living experience. Sliding walls of glass off open, airy living spaces lead to expansive decks and manicured lawns surrounded by lush, tropical foliage. Vibrant bouganvilla and exotic palms color the grounds, surrounding a serene koi pond and waterfall. The garden theme is ever-present throughout the home’s interiors, beginning with the elegant, sky-lit atrium, which showcases its own indoor tropical garden display, mirroring the vibrant landscaping that surrounds.
Sitting on the footprint of one of Ojai’s original early 20th century hotels, this gated, five-acre estate, represented by Gideon Lang-Laddie and Jonathan Ruiz, showcases gardens that will take your breath away. Inspired by his childhood growing up on a farm in Switzerland, the estate’s owner meticulously planned the grounds, infusing the property with an abundance of blooms, scents, edible leaves, fruits and vegetables. Watered by the property’s own well, the estate features expansive green lawns, 800 fragrant rose bushes, towering shade trees, avocado, orange, nectarine and lemon trees, along with every imaginable variety of vegetable. A meandering pathway that leads from the part-saltwater swimming pool and spa, to the home’s own bocce ball and sports courts, is lined with flowering lavender, filling the air with the sweet smells of the South of France, to accompany the sweeping views of the surrounding mountains and Ojai’s famed ‘Pink Moment’.
Located at the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula, where the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific Ocean, this remarkable offering, ideally situated between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, showcases magnificent gardens in a beautiful oceanfront setting. Represented by Bernardo Mucino Koenig and Mauricio Umansky, the home’s grand tiled entrance pathway features a commanding water feature surrounded by towering palm trees and colorful flowers. Charming palapas, quaint courtyards and immaculately landscaped gardens studded with gently swaying palms create an environment of immense beauty, all perfectly arranged to enjoy endless blue-water views and vibrant sea life in the distance.
Perched atop a hill in the Fundadores neighborhood of Puerto Los Cabos, overlooking the Sea of Cortez, Paradiso Perduto combines all the best aspects of luxury living with ample grounds for relaxation and adventure. Represented by Mauricio Rivero, Bernardo Bucino Koenig and Janet Jensen, the home is built on two lots totaling 55,521 square feet and features a paddle tennis court, chip and putt golf course, bocce court and dramatic infinity-edge pool. Perhaps most breathtaking of all is the estate’s lush grounds, which showcase a cascading creek housing koi fish and turtles that runs through lush gardens, all set against views of the ocean. Ideal for entertaining, the garden can accommodate special events of up to 200 guests.
Resting on approximately 1.3 acres in prime Beverly Hills, this pedigreed estate, represented by Stacy Gottula, was originally built by Paul Williams and reimagined in 2010 with the finest of finishes. Verdant grounds are lined with an abundance of private loggias, manicured hedges, sprawling lawns, rose bushes, lemon trees, palm trees and a waterfall that joins a romantic koi pond. Oversized doors off grand-scale living spaces promote an effortless indoor-outdoor flow, bringing exquisite grounds to the forefront of the living experience. The estate also features a pool and spa, north-south-facing professional tennis court, full putting green, dry sauna and outdoor cabanas.
Immersed in the natural beauty of Blue Mountain on the island of Providenciales, this expansive villa, represented by Ian Hurdle, showcases magical grounds elevated by seemingly infinite ocean views. The gated property includes a cutting garden rife with vibrant flowers, fruit trees, a grotto, waterfall—including a turtle pond—three-zone infinity pool, hot tub, sauna and beach access. Meandering pathways lined with palms and lush foliage cut through the property, while bridges and stairways enveloped with overhanging greenery are nothing short of transportive.
