We’ve worked hard at Coldwell Banker to make our website, coldwellbanker.com, a valuable tool for all of you. We’ve added keyword search capabilities, improved the navigation and developed BlueScape, the ultimate tool for finding your dream home.
This got us thinking: what are the most popular “dream homes” on coldwellbanker.com? We took a look at the top 10 most-viewed home listings in November, and found there is still a strong interest in the most extraordinary homes in the U.S. The top two homes are not only spectacular dream homes; they also have famous former residents.
The property that rules the West Coast is The Spelling Manor, former home to the late television and film producer Aaron Spelling, that features grand-style luxury with a projection room, billiard room and 2-lane bowling alley among some of the fantastic amenities. The estate, listed at $150,000,000, has 14 bedrooms and – get this – 27 bathrooms, and is located in the Beverly Hills section of Los Angeles, Calif.
The Point, a 20-acre estate believed to be the inspiration for the mansion in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, is the most viewed home in the East. The main home was built in 1850 by John Alsop King Jr.. He was the son of a New York governor and namesake of Kings Point, the town in Long Island where the home is located. In addition to gorgeous panoramic views of the ocean and the New York City skyline, the estate includes nine buildings, a pool, gardens, stables, a vineyard and a greenhouse. The main house has nine bedrooms and five baths. The estate is listed at $39,500,000. If you’ve read The Great Gatsby, you can only imagine the kinds of parties and extravagant affairs of this home in its heyday!
