The Old San Juan Villa

A stunning fifty-two room mansion. The ancient villa sits high on the Old City’s North Wall with stunning Atlantic Ocean views and breezes. Created by joining six interconnecting townhouses, the villa houses an artist and her life’s work in painting and sculpture. The magnificently decaying stone and plaster walls harken back to a time when pirates looted and pillaged in the Caribbean. The villa features brick patios, antique arches, ausubo beams, private stone nooks, a sunken open-air waterfall pool, and a multitude of sculpted fountains. Nineteen gardens and five active art studios are tucked away between twenty-two beautifully appointed guest rooms. A Venetian-style music room houses a grand piano.

Square footage: 23,000 (Fifty two room mansion)

The Lakefront Lodge

This stately lodge, with its steeply pitched wood shingle roof and stone façade, wouldn’t be out of place in the English countryside or Germany’s Black Forest. One reaches the lodge via a private road through woods and wetlands. Knock on the brass lion doorknocker at the front door, but be patient as it takes awhile to unbolt the heavy wooden door. Inside you’ll find a cavernous wood-paneled great room, a huge fireplace with cauldrons, and an enormous wrought iron chandelier. Outside you’ll find a private lake with a floating dock, a grand lion-headed fountain, waterfall, manicured grounds, rolling hills, and huge pines circling the home. This lakefront estate is surrounded by water on four sides, which offers water views from almost every window. Square footage: 5,000 interior, 7.5 acres of land (Main house: Great room, dining room, bird room, sunroom, commercial kitchen, 4 bedrooms, art studio, 5 bathrooms, steam room, laundry room; Outbuildings: Boathouse, large workshop, tower, child’s house) Amenities/Details:
