53 W 53rd 55A / $19.725M
"Rising 1,050 feet in the heart of Manhattan against the cinematic backdrop of Central Park and the surrounding cityscape, this property is truly the future of NYC apartments," Eklund says. "This property also proves what magic can happen when an architect (Pritzker Prize-winner Jean Nouvel) and an interior designer (legendary Thierry Despont) collaborate on a space. 53 West 53 is a true icon for not only its overall design, but also the 5-star hotel level amenities that come with living in this building with the MoMA on the ground floor. Deeply personalized amenities are now an expectation for buildings to curate for their residents, and this building spared no expense to make sure this was available."
17 Crest Rd. / $$16.680M
"This property had sat on the market for two years and needed a rebrand and new life," Eklund says. "We brought in real horses to illustrate the lifestyle of the home, and it sold in 60 days for $$16.680 million, a record-breaking sale in Rolling Hills. We're seeing more buyers demanding properties with a small house and a lot of land in the LA area."
27453 Ortega Hwy. / $6.995M
"This three-acre property is a gem of a find in Orange County," Eklund says. "Equipped with an equestrian center, putting green, movie theatre and more, we are seeing that—even in Orange County—buyers want properties with all the bells and whistles not just inside, but outside as well to soak up all the California sunshine."
265 S Beach Rd. / $39.5M
"This buyer purchased not only an incredible Spanish Colonial Property by Alan Wanzenberg, but also a private beach in Jupiter Island as their backyard," Eklund says. "This couldn't be more of what a Florida client is looking for. The natural privacy by the lush landscaping creates a picturesque backdrop surrounding the Har-Tru tennis court, BBQ area, pool, private beach—and let's not forget, it's tax-free!"
2304 Donella Cir. / $15.995M
"Deemed the 'Mansion in the Sky,' this Bel Air property encompasses why I have so enjoyed working with L.A. properties," Eklund says. "This property takes advantage of the L.A. buyer's needs by focusing on creating endless outdoor space, incorporating a 2,000 square-foot rooftop deck that gives you the best views L.A. has to offer, in addition to an invisible pool that surrounds a sunken fireplace hang out spot."
