Luxury vacation home sales have been on the rise in recent years as more people are trading in their resort destinations for something they can call their own. Realtors and mortgage brokers alike are seeing trends in luxury vacation home sales on both coasts of the United States as well as some mountain, desert, and lake front homes. We’ve looked at many vacation homes and taken into account the popular destinations and have selected some prime locales you may want to call your home away from home.
The Hamptons, New York
First we have a popular destination for affluent New York City residents and for those who wish to be and are willing to share a rental house with a dozen of their closest friends, The Hamptons is the place to be in the summer. Located on the eastern side of Long Island’s South Fork, this series of seaside communities is made up of long stretches of beach, interior farmland, and charming 18th century-era buildings and estates. Pictured is a stately home in The Hamptons village of Oyster Bay Cove, aka, Copper Beach. Currently on the market for $9,900,000 with Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty.
Steeped in Cuban culture, the international city of Miami, Florida, has long been a vacation destination for its gorgeous beaches, gorgeous people, beautiful weather, and also the turquoise waters in Biscayne Bay. We’re focusing in on Brickell Key, right in the heart of Miami and in close proximity to Miami Beach and South Beach. This man-made island is also called Claughton Island and is the perfect location for your luxury vacation home. Pictured is a luxury apartment in Asia, the premier luxury building on Brickell Key. It features a high-end kitchen, a private elevator, and also enviable views. This luxury unit is available for $2,375,000 from EWM Realty International.
Pine forests, red-rock buttes, and steep canyon walls are the setting for Sedona, Arizona. This is an ideal getaway with a mild climate as well as a thriving arts community. Perfect for hiking and also hitting the local shops and galleries, Sedona has a unique vibe that welcomes everyone – after one visit, you’ll wonder why you don’t already own a vacation home there! We love this home as it fits seamlessly into the Sedona landscape. This luxury green home could be yours for $3,300,000 through Sotheby’s International Realty.
Del Mar, California
With what can only be described as a pleasant and utterly lovely year-round moderate to warm climate, Del Mar (a beach city in San Diego County) is most widely known for horse races. But, its close proximity to San Diego means you’re in the right place for beaches, a world-renowned zoo, luxury accommodations, art galleries, world-class shopping, restaurants, museums, and so much more. There’s never a bad time to visit Del Mar, which makes this the perfect destination for a vacation home. This contemporary Mediterranean home is another that is perfect for hosting family or friends or both. At $6,995,000, it is available through Rande Turner Properties.
