Luxury living in California
California is the epicenter for luxury living. The golden state is spotted with elegant cities and quiet hideaways for those with the most exquisite tastes. Combined with a year round temperate climate, beautiful scenery, fine dining and the best shopping around, California is the place to live for people who want it all.
For those who enjoy luxurious city living, Beverly Hills, Bel Air and Holmby Hills are the cities to be in. These cities have the most magnificent mansions on gated manicured estates that provide privacy, while being set next to stores such as Tiffany Jewelers and Sax Fifth Avenue, hip nightclubs and restaurants, and a plethora of beauty spas.
People who want to be close to the Los Angeles action, but want a little more privacy, may prefer the Hollywood Hills, which is a quiet hilltop estate community nestled next to the Santa Monica Mountains. Estate owners in the Hollywood Hills enjoy beautiful views of Hollywood down below, all from the privacy of their exquisitely designed homes.
For those who want to enjoy the beauty of nature in the most exclusive settings, Malibu and the Pacific Palisades can’t be beat. These coastal cities are set in the Santa Monica Mountains, with its abundant wildlife and preserved nature habitats. The mansions in these areas are designed by some of the world’s most famous architects. Many of them rest on the scenic ocean behind guarded gates. For those who prize privacy, but must have every luxury available, the mountain areas of these cities provide the solution. These mansions nestled in the mountains are surrounded by acres of private gated property, swimming pools, horse arenas, golf courses, and more. With views of the ocean on one side and the mountains on the other, estate owner’s feel like they are in the middle of nowhere, yet they are only a short drive into town where the finest spas, designer fashion boutiques, gourmet restaurants, and the famous Getty Museums are found.
The central coast and further north in California also provide luxurious spots for those who enjoy a taste of luxury. Montecito, Paso Robles, Half Moon Bay and Saint Francis Wood are all cities that combine elegant living in a beautiful setting, and have a slower pace than the cities in Southern California.
Each affluent area in California is designed with luxury in mind. These areas are designed for those who have the finest tastes and will settle for nothing less than the best. In California, one does not have to settle for anything. Great weather, exquisite scenery, fine dining, glamorous night life, art galleries and the best shopping experiences combine to make California the dream place to live.
