The idea of “luxury living” is definitely different for everyone. In some aspects, it is measured by fortune, or the lifestyle you are used to living. It could also be measured by how you spend your time or the activities you do. It could be a gourmet meal at a high-end restaurant, a day at an elegant spa, or an exotic vacation. Luxury living also could be measured in a simple way - who hasn’t relished in the feeling of a luxurious “day off”? Depending on how you live, it is different in how you determine what it means to you. Is it the way you live or where you live that makes it luxurious? Is it the architecture of a home, the sheer size of a home, or the exotic finishes that spell out luxury to you? Perhaps it is the lifestyle that the type of home you choose allows you to live - do you live in a modest home and choose to spend your money elsewhere with experiences and travel, or do you fill your home with every high-tech and high-end finish in existence? Is it the location of being in the middle of the best neighborhood, or maybe you want the peaceful serenity of acreage without a neighbor in sight?
Here in our area, we are surrounded by luxury. Not only in the homes and estates that surround us, but also in the nature, environment, and culture that is so prevalent in our community. Whatever luxury means to you, I thought it would be fun to spend some time looking at some homes currently on the market, that to most people would be the epitome of “Luxury Living”.

"Imagine owning this iconic Lewis Crook designed home sited majestically atop a beautiful +/-5 acre lot on arguably the most expensive stretch of estate scale real estate in Tuxedo Park. Rarely do opportunities like this come available and once this one is purchased, it will not be available again for perhaps 30 years. Combining the elegance of the old with the Norman Askins updates of the previous 2 owners, this property is truly unsurpassed. The very livable floor plan centers around the walk-out pool and gorgeous landscaped grounds. Truly a forever home!"
