A great view goes a long way. Whether its city lights or ocean horizons, fields of flowers or scenic hillsides, these six estates offer perspectives that bring a little peace and inspiration.
1130 CAROLYN WAY | BEVERLY HILLS
This hilltop home’s breathtaking views stretch from Downtown L.A. to Catalina Island. Masterfully designed by architect Philip Vertoch and completed in 2019, the 12,127-square-foot estate sits above Sunset Boulevard. Its expansive pool terrace looks out on lush green treetops, the skyline in the distance and the Channel Islands on the horizon. 1130 Carolyn Way is represented by Blair Chang.
CASA BAHIA ROCAS | SAN JOSE DEL CABO
Set on two oceanfront acres within the ultra-private Villas Del Mar community in Palmilla, this estate’s sweeping Sea of Cortez views will have you totally entranced. Swaying palms surround the expertly landscaped property, which is adjacent to the world-famous One&Only Palmilla and moments from the calm waters of Palmilla Bay. Listen to the breeze pass through the trees from the home’s spacious sun-drenched terraces or while dipping into the infinity-edged pool and two heated spas. Casa Bahia Rocas is represented by Janet Jensen, Jessica Moreira, Lew Gallo and Jonathan Ruiz.
1622 VIEWMONT DRIVE | LOS ANGELES
Designed by architect Michael Mueller to capture the most impressive views of L.A., this estate in the Hollywood Hills is surrounded by sweeping vistas that span from the Downtown skyline to the Pacific Ocean and north to the Santa Monica Mountains. Represented by Mauricio Umansky and Farrah Brittany, the five-bedroom, eight-bath home’s expansive floor plan flows seamlessly from one space to the next, and from inside to outside through Fleetwood sliding pocket doors—which also frame its epic city views.
THREE HAWKS RANCH | SANTA BARBARA, CA
From 2700 Refugio Road’s stone pool deck—or from inside the main house’s newly expanded interiors—take in wildly wondrous views, which run 15 miles down the grassy hillside, across the Pacific and out to the Channel Islands. The estate’s 12-foot ceiling and wrap-around glass walls also help emphasize the broad-reaching vistas. Represented by Billy Rose and built in the 1920s, this 106-acre coastal ranch also features a pair of new on-site yurts (complete with air conditioning and heating) plus a 60-tree fruit orchard, an updated chef’s kitchen, two barns and an outdoor dining terrace.
VILLA 5109 WYMARA | TURKS & CAICOS
This is the picture-perfect tropical ocean view you have been dreaming about. Perched atop the waterside cliffs of Turtle Tail, Wymara Villa 5109 captures unrivaled vistas of the Caicos Banks and turquoise blue ocean waters. Offered pre-construction, Wymara Villa 5109 comes with a design crafted by the internationally renowned Coast Architects—but there’s still room for personalization. Located within a 15-acre, gated community with exclusive access to Wymara resort amenities, the estate will feature three private pools, an over-the-water swim platform and plenty of patio space for soaking in the ocean views. Villa 5109 is represented by Nieve O’Neill, Sean O’Neill, Brendan O’Neill, Zach Knapp and Steven Davis.
CASA BELLA | TODOS SANTOS
Casa Bella offers land and sea panoramas, from sunrise to sunset. Set on the side of a bluff, this 10,225-square-foot estate’s views span up and down the coast, capturing lush vegetation, deep blue ocean waters and a tranquil tributary. Enjoy the scenery from all three of the home’s expansive levels. Casa Bella’s pool, barbecue and outdoor dining area are all designed to provide the best seats for sunset and stargazing.
