#2     1120 Park Avenue, PH, New York, NY 10128 is listed for sale at $25,000,000.




There is something extra magical about this 5 bedrooms, 6 bath Penthouse. The views of Central Park that are somehow better than those found from apartments on Fifth Avenue combine with its terraces and the seamless marriage of a traditional, graceful Park Avenue apartment duplex and a wonderful loft-like great room merge to create something unlike any other apartment in Manhattan. Remarkably, every room has views of the Park and reservoir or twinkly city vistas, or both. Completely renovated and designed by David Kleinberg, the happy possibilities for entertaining are apparent when you walk in. The formal living room has Central Park views, a charming terrace, a wood burning fireplace and multiple seating areas. It opens, enfilade, to the corner dining room, also with park views. The kitchen has a well-planned gourmet cooking area with open city exposures, as well as a large breakfast room/den. The bedrooms on the second level all have endless views of The Park and city from large picture windows. The master suite is a serene oasis with large closets and a lovely white marble bath. The secondary bedrooms are generous in size and have en-suite baths. Currently configured as a 4 bedroom plus staff room, there is also a lovely guest quarters on the 22nd floor. The apartment is in its entirety perfection, but the room that literally stops the presses is the great room, or "Penthouse" on top of the apartment. With wrap-around terraces, the room feels like a treehouse aerie floating above Central Park and the sparkling reservoir. The "PH Room" has everything: views, high ceilings, an abundance of glass, a wood burning fireplace, full kitchen, full bath, and terraces with mature plantings and an irrigation system as well as a Viking gas grill and enchanted hideaways for dining or sitting. While more contemporary in feel than downstairs, the materials seamlessly link it to the rest of the apartment. All floors are accessible by the building elevator.

#3   6545 Redwood Retreat Road, Gilroy, CA 95020 is listed for sale at $15,000,000.



Just south of Morgan Hill, a few miles from Watsonville Road and on the Santa Clara Wine Trail, is the turn off to Redwood Retreat Road and the way to Bates Ranch Vineyard. This 6 bedroom, 7 bath, 4,144 sq.ft. historic estate was once a historic stagecoach trail leading to the tranquility of the country, and a haven for poets and writers. The feeling of leisure begins when you have left the broad striped highway for a more humble road as written in A Cabin in the Hills by Allan R. Bosworth many years ago. Today, that haven still exists in the bucolic 932 acre Bates Ranch, which has been in the same family since the late 1950s. A beautifully preserved William Wurster designed main house watches over the park setting, surrounded by heritage oaks and serene gardens that greet you as you pull up the classic gravel drive. A number of settings await your new dream home. These private lands and vineyards await the next steward who values the opportunity to enjoy a week-end retreat, a summer place or full-time ranch.

Today's Mortgage Rates
Mortgage Rates Edge Slightly Higher
Jul 9 2018, 4:47PM

Mortgage rates were modestly higher today amid exceptionally quiet market conditions.  In general, the bond market (which underlies mortgage rates) has been sideways and fairly lifeless since the end of June.  Until Friday, the same could be said for stocks.  At that time, both sides of the market were waiting to see how other investors would react to the official implementation of new tariffs.  

Volatility surrounding the tariff launch suggests that the stock market was jumpier than bonds/rates.  Still, rates have been willing to take some cues from the direction of movement in stocks.  For instance, when stocks are surging higher, it can suggest investors are more comfortable with risk, and less eager to own bonds, which are considered a safe haven.  When demand for bonds drops, rates rise.

All of the above having been said, I'd hesitate to read too much into the microscopic rate movement seen in recent weeks.  Today, especially, was incredibly light in terms of volume and participation among bond traders.  Themes may change when activity begins to ramp up.

The Top 50 Luxury Real Estate Markets with 2018 Updated Medium Home Values

The definition of the word "mansion" varies but in U.S. real estate terms, it generally defined as single family residence of more than 8,000 square feet. Mega Mansion range from 20,000 sq,ft. and Super Mansions over 50,000 sq.ft. Until the mid 20th century most "mansions" would have a hall, two or three salons or drawing rooms, library, billiards room, ball room, dining room, breakfast room, morning room, study and numerous bedrooms but only 2-3 bathrooms.
