Two of North America's Most Spectacular Homes

A home that the listing agent describes as possibly the most spectacular waterfront property in North America, and a $50 million mansion in Mexico are for sale and featured this week at TopTenRealEstateDeals.com.
“Lake Tahoe Contemporary”
One of the world’s deepest Alpine lakes, Lake Tahoe straddles the California – Nevada state line offering prime water, mountain and forest views, hiking and ski resorts that attract wealthy home buyers. Especially to the friendly-tax Nevada side such as Incline Village. As exhilarating or laid back as Incline Village is today, the town has attracted adventurers since the Gold Rush days when Mark Twain lived there as a reporter for the Virginia City Territorial Enterprise writing about the area’s mining boom.
Now for sale in Incline Village, one of Nevada’s most expensive and contemporary homes described by the listing agent as “quite possibly the most spectacular waterfront property in North America.” On the edge of Lake Tahoe with huge unobstructed views of the blue lake and snow-covered Sierras through six floors of floor-to-ceiling glass and steel walls, each of the home’s floors can be accessed via a glass elevator or glass stairwell. Sited on a half acre in front of a solid rock cliff that provides privacy, the 8,694-square-foot house includes four bedrooms, four baths, a dining room that appears to be floating over the water and a round, free-standing fireplace and chimney that can be viewed from the living room and while dining. Balconies with clear railings for unobstructed views provide outside space from upper levels with the ground level offering a terrace, lawn and access to a steel pier, boat hoist and two buoys on the 98-foot lake frontage.
Priced at $39.75 million, co-listing agents are Janet O’Donnell and Michael Oliver with Christie’s Oliver Luxury Real Estate in Tahoe City.
“$50 Million Los Cabos Mansion Has 50 Different Colors of Mexican Tile”
Located at the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula in Los Cabos, Mexico where the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific Ocean, the water is so abundant with aquatic life that Jacques Cousteau called it the “last natural living aquarium in the world.” The Gulf of California is where ecotourists flock in the winter to watch the pods of whales that come to bear their calves at the completion of their 6,000-mile migration from Alaska and Siberia. The Los Cabos area has been a prime year-round vacation spot for Americans and South Americans since the end of the 19th century.
An impressive resort-style residence, Casa Noble could be used as a private residence or turned into an elite small resort on 2.56 gated acres and 240-feet of beachfront, the most expensive estate for sale in Cabo with an asking price of $50 million. The Spanish-hacienda-style contemporary is spread out across the acreage with 28,807 square feet of air-conditioned living space on seven levels which includes 23 bedrooms and 25 bathrooms with oceanside terraces, fitness facility, steam room, sauna, hot tubs, tennis court, pools and spa. The main house has 50 different colors of Mexican tile, many of which can be seen around walkways and courtyards that display thick tropical plantings and palms. Each of the doors has been hand carved by local artisans and walls of glass throughout the property guarantee expansive ocean views. There are six separate dining areas, five kitchens (including two designed for catering), and three bars making it easy to entertain the entire neighborhood.
Casa Noble’s asking price is $50 million. Co-listing agents are Jade Mills, Coldwell Banker, Beverly Hills; Bernardo Mucino Koenig, The Agency, Los Cabos; and Mauricio Umansky, The Agency, Beverly Hills.
