What’s on the market right now for $4.3 million? For about that amount, you could buy an ocean-view villa in Ibiza, a renovated one-bedroom apartment in Hong Kong’s Happy Valley, or an off-the-grid compound on Maui’s North Shore. Here’s a closer look:
A pampered offering by the Mediterranean Sea, this contemporary villa in Ibiza, Spain, features an open-concept floor plan with flexible rooms for almost every living situation. Clean lines, floor-to-ceiling windows and organic materials define the architectural home, which takes in mountain and ocean views.
Features: Private balconies and multiple terrace spaces create a wealth of outdoor living space at the Ibiza compound. A rustic stone wall shields a swimming pool area flanked by gardens and mature trees in the backyard.
Other perks: In addition to sweeping views, the villa is a prime position for visiting Ibiza’s most popular beaches. The home is also close to Ibiza Airport, making for quick to-and-from travel to and from the resort area.
Haiku, Maui, Hawaii
Price: $4.3 million
Nestled in a tropical forest of green punctuated slightly by views of the blue Pacific, this compound on Maui’s North Shore is entirely self-sufficient with its well, multiple photovoltaic systems and fruit trees on site. A pair of artist-inspired homes, two swimming pools and an art studio are among the structures found on site.
Features: Of the two homes found on the property, the “Ocean House” sits in the lower valley at the confluence of two running streams and offers three bedrooms, three bathrooms and lanai with some of the best ocean views on the property. A three-bedroom, three-bathroom “Sky House” sits at the top of the valley, taking in the greenery and ocean below it.
Other perks: Meandering stone paths make it easy to explore the roughly 10-acre compound. In addition to fruit groves and nature trails, the property is home to an impressive collection of botanicals, palms and ancient Banyan trees.
Happy Valley, Hong Kong
Located in Happy Valley, an affluent suburb on Hong Kong Island, this one-bedroom residence has been renovated and features a sophisticated palette of designer-done spaces. Of note is a rustic wood-clad office/den, which adjoins a media room.
Features: Tempered glass conceals an updated cook’s kitchen with custom cabinetry. The lone bedroom suite features a posh bathroom upgraded with colorful artistic tile, a large walk-in closet and a Japanese-style wood soaking tub.
Other perks: Nearly the entire Hong Kong skyline is one display from the home’s oversized balcony, which sits off the living room. The property also comes with one car park — a coveted amenity in the dense city.
