Property Insights: What Does U. S. $10 Million Buy Around the World?

In the global marketplace for luxury real estate, let's explore what you get for $10,000,000... Does the big city call, or an island retreat?

Consider a penthouse in the romantic city of Paris, a Villa in Casablanca a Contemporary home in Mallorca or stay stateside in a Mediterranean-style property in Montecito.

The cool, white contemporary wings of Villa Harmony embrace a sundeck, shaded terraces, and swimming pool deck, enclosed in a palm tree-lined garden. Walls of windows (with translucent curtains) create light-filled interiors, shade, and privacy. The open-plan ground level includes a contemporary take on the majlis, or traditional drawing room for visitors. The double-height family/living room flows to a media lounge, dining space, a sleek contemporary kitchen with a breakfast nook, an office, and a fitness center.

A dramatic, spiral staircase rises from the common spaces to a curved galley (with glass balustrade) and six vast en suite bedrooms, each with a dressing room. All this is just minutes from the Atlantic promenade of La Corniche and its Morocco Mall—the largest shopping mall on the continent.

Blue walls, the color of the deep sea; blue, solar-panelled roofs; and a tall, bronze palm-tree sculpture proclaim the playful soul of the rambling villa Mare Blu. Its 6,000 square feet perch on a 0.96-acre gated lot above the cerulean waters of Cruz Bay on St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands.

Window walls and pocket doors throughout the house flow to balconies, galleries, and terraces, blurring the line between indoors and out. Inside, seven immaculate bedroom suites complement the exterior with a soothing palette of burnt orange, rust-brown wood finishes and postcard views, with seven full bathrooms executed in sea-sparkling blue mosaic tile.

The outdoor amenities center on a 48-foot infinity pool, a pool lanai, spa showers, and a fully kitted open-air kitchen serving the covered dining and lounging spaces. To quote the great Antônio Carlos Jobim song, there’ll be “No More Blues”!
