In the global marketplace for luxury real estate, just what does $1.5 million buy? That’s the question Luxury Defined, the online magazine of Christie’s International Real Estate was answering in an article recently published.
Rising property prices don’t mean there are no values out there. Even a prime market like New York City still has Manhattan listings for $1.5 million—but perhaps not as much in the way of square footage. Those willing to buy farther afield will find more than bricks and mortar: They might find a lifestyle in a locale with a piece of history, and a home for living the dream.
Considering the vineyard lifestyle? Christie’s International Real Estate offers a vineyard (and an olive grove) in one of the world’s great wine regions, with change to spare. Thinking of moving south for the winter? Well, a brand-new luxury villa on the “hurricane-free” Caribbean island of Aruba might just be the ticket.
Read on to discover what and, perhaps even more importantly, where $1.5 million gets you. Here are some examples:
Vineyard Estate, Greve in Chianti, Tuscany, Italy
Chelsea Garden Cooperative, New York, New York
Villa Bella Luna, Aruba, Leeward Antilles
Louis XIII-Style Château, Normandy, France
