From a California compound to a chic East Coast beach house, these four properties are perfect places to celebrate what Thoreau called “the glistening autumnal side of summer.”
Magnificent Malibu Compound
Steps from Broad Beach, this majestic compound is one of the most luxurious properties in Malibu. It offers open-concept living areas opening to decks for effortless entertaining, a chef’s kitchen, a theater, a circular primary suite with retractable doors giving way to a sundeck, three guest suites, and every imaginable amenity. The grounds are a veritable resort, featuring a stunning pool and spa with two waterfalls and a bridge, a pool house with a wet bar and a steamshower, and a tennis court.
Secluded East Hampton Oasis
On the verge of Three Mile Harbor, this peaceful three-bedroom hideaway enjoys water views from nearly every room. Its chic interiors include a living room with vaulted ceilings, a fireplace, and a wall of glass; a kitchen with stainless-steel appliances, marble countertops, and a butcher-block island; a spacious dining area; and an upper-level primary suite with a balcony, a jetted tub, a shower, and heated floors. Just outside is a wraparound ipe deck with an outdoor shower. A 116-acre preserve and Sammy’s beach are nearby.
Sunset Plaza Serenity
An easy open flow and sophisticated style are the hallmarks of this five-bedroom compound on a quiet cul-de-sac in a premier Lower Sunset Plaza location. It features living, family, and dining rooms as well as a chef’s kitchen, all opening through walls of glass to the private backyard, which offers a refreshing pool and spa, a striking grilling area, a pergola, a covered living area, and a dining terrace. The restaurants and shops of Sunset Plaza are within walking distance.
Enchanting Hamptons Hideaway
Filled with glorious natural light, this quintessential beach house sits on the banks of Noyac Bay. Boasting the chic minimalist style for which the Hamptons are known, it features wide-plank hardwood floors, skylights, an open-plan great room that includes a well-appointed kitchen, three bedrooms, two baths, a secluded deck gazing out toward the waves, a small waterfront terrace, and views that stretch to Shelter Island. The delights of Sag Harbor Village are minutes away.
