The latest edition of Private Residences is here, featuring some of Engel & Völkers' most extraordinary properties from across the Americas, and the homes included once again do not disappoint. This season, whether you're a cold-weather enthusiast or like to be a snowbird by the beach, these properties are sure to satisfy all your winter homebuying dispositions. Here's a roundup of some of our favorites that are truly making our eyes tear.
The Critically Acclaimed Chalet - Sundance, Utah
Exquisite cinema isn't the only thing that comes out of Sundance, Utah. World renowned architect, builder and visionary Bron Roylance designed this one-of-a-kind ski chalet, which was inspired by French monasteries and incorporates priceless art, antiques and elements found from his personal travels. Built with the structure and amenities of a modern home, but having the heart and soul of a period piece, this home boasts the most incredible amount of salvaged stonework, woodwork and interior design pieces. Not a fan of the ecclesiastical aesthetic? Perhaps this property's next homebuyer can appreciate the estate's direct access onto Mount Timpanogos and its après-ski room.
The Cabana in Cabos - Los Cabos, Mexico
Perched at the top of Los Cabos' legendary One & Only Palmilla Hotel, Casa Fryzer not only epitomizes luxury beach living with its sweeping infinity views, total privacy and sophisticated decor, but it also includes a private screening room, custom-made chef's kitchen and 2,000 square foot living pool. That's right — a living pool. The photos speak for themselves.
The Waterfront Wonder - Powell River, British Columbia
While this family estate sits on a whopping 23.5 acres, the entire estate was thoughtfully crafted over the course of a few years, and it shows in its stunning architecture. Comprised of a main residence, caretaker's cottage, several guest houses, outbuildings, perennial gardens, scenic walking trails and private 60-foot dock, Maracoté is the ultimate waterfront estate. With access to some of British Columbia's best boating, fishing and natural beauty right at its doorstep, it's easy to want to spend all your time outdoors. Yet, the main residence's wine cellar, game room, gym or chef's kitchen just might tempt you to stay indoors.
The Fairytale Family Home - Coral Gables, Florida
With a winding driveway lined with 100 oak trees that guides you to a dreamy ivy-covered estate, this Coral Gables home is nothing short of enchanting. The current homeowners designed its grand salon and formal dining room with large celebrations in mind, but balanced these with a cozy library and game room to offer intimate comfort at all other times. With an added patio, pool, tennis court and basketball court, the next family to reside in this on-the-market listing will always have a reason to spend some quality time together.
