What’s better than enjoying fresh air and sunshine while remaining steps from the comforts and conveniences of the indoors? These five homes—in desirable locales from Palm Beach to wine country—boast indoor-outdoor spaces just right for the long, lovely days of summer.
Contemporary Tour de Force
Vivienne Leebosh & Caroline Santandrea | Sotheby’s International Realty – Montecito – Coast Village Road Brokerage
Every interior space of this stunning masterwork enjoys a bond with the outdoors. Designed by esteemed architect Barton Myers, the residence was inspired by the temperate climate of California and the indoor-outdoor lifestyle it fosters. In the primary living space—a great room with 16-foot ceilings and a Bulthaup kitchen—glass walls “disappear,” offering a seamless flow between indoors and a patio with a fire pit, various garden “rooms,” and a 50-foot lap pool.
Napa Valley Idyll
Ginger Martin, Sotheby’s International Realty – Wine Country – East Napa Street Brokerage
On approximately four acres in the idyllic locale of Napa Valley, this stylish estate—a 6,000-square-foot main residence and a 900-square-foot guesthouse—combines sophistication and serenity. The heart of the home—adjoined by a sleek kitchen and a chic wet bar—is a great room with walls of glass giving way to a dining loggia, a sparkling swimming pool, and a spa, with tasteful landscaping, olive trees, and an acre of Sauvignon Blanc vines beyond.
Modernist Masterpiece in Santa Fe
Neil Lyon, Sotheby’s International Realty – Santa Fe – 326 Grant Avenue Brokerage
In the hills of Tesuque, just north of Santa Fe, this exceptional residence boasts sleek adobe walls and a minimalist interior that more closely resemble an urban museum than a Southwestern retreat. A rooftop mezzanine above the one-bedroom casita and a wraparound portal afford vistas in multiple directions. Combining serenity, understated refinement, and harmony, the spacious living and dining area is walled with floor-to-ceiling expanses of glass that frame priceless mountain views and open to a courtyard with sculptures and a fountain.
Hamptons Waterfront Compound
Pat Petrillo & Dawn Petrillo, Sotheby’s International Realty – Southampton Brokerage
On 2.6 acres in Bridgehampton, this wonderful eight-bedroom home has an easy, elegant floor plan that makes day-to-day living and grand entertaining equally effortless and enjoyable. The living room and both formal and informal dining areas open to an enviable collection of covered and open-air terrace spaces that look out over the estate’s refreshing swimming pool and spa toward lush green lawn, vibrant gardens, mature trees, Kellis Pond, and sunsets.
Light-Filled Contemporary in Palm Beach
Patricia Mahaney & JB Edwards, Sotheby’s International Realty – Palm Beach Brokerage
On a cul-de-sac overlooking the eighth hole of the Old Palm Golf Club, this six-bedroom residence exemplifies contemporary elegance, offering an array of formal and informal spaces for relaxed day-to-day living and chic entertaining. Towering ceilings create a sense of grandeur and lightness throughout. In the family room, a wall of glass blurs the lines between indoors and out, opening to a covered terrace just steps from the dramatic pool and spa.
