Tour A South Florida Mega Mansion

A South Florida Mega Mansion

There are some properties that require no description and pictures don’t even do it justice. This is one of those properties. The video below from LXTV Open House gives you a tour of one of the most incredible properties I’ve ever seen. Listed by Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate superstar team, The Jills, this $29 million palatial estate in Bal Harbour, Florida transcends luxury. Everything is custom and it boasts 200 feet of waterfront views.

If that’s not enough you’ll also get two infinity pools, 8 beds, 10 baths, and over 12,000 square feet of livability. Enough of my typing. Check out the video below to be amazed.

Tour Through the True Blood Mansion

It’s the season for creatures of a scary nature and what better time to have a house on the market that is known for vampires. Fans of HBO’s True Blood may recognize this palatial estate as being home to the blood-sucking Queen Sophie Anne, but it’s actually a home set on the bluffs of Malibu. The mansion is currently listed by the #1 agent in all of Coldwell Banker Real Estate, Chris Cortazzo, for $75 million.

Michael Corbett of Extra TV featured the property the other night which you can over at ExtraTV.com. What you’ll notice is that the indoor pool that has been seen on a number of episodes of True Blood is actually contained in a totally separate mansion from the main house! Chris Cortazzo describes the home as being influenced by Italian design and architecture, and the home has some of the most beautiful views in Malibu.

According to the property description, the home is actually named La Villa Contenta and is one of the world’s premier properties that has never before listed for sale. This ultimate compound is located on approx 8 acres of the most prime bluff top that Malibu has to offer. No vampires included.
