Editor’s Letter from Dreams Ultimate Estates 2017 by Natalie Friberg
This issue of Dreams takes you jet-setting around the world for a dazzling display of the ultimate real estate and wealth contained on our planet.
Starting here in the cosmopolitan center of the world, Los Angeles, we take you into the prestigious hills of West LA for a tour of the most expensive property in the history of the United States. At $250 million, 924 Bel Air Road is the ultimate show-stopper, comprised of every amenity imaginable and built exclusively for the discerning billionaire. The property’s helipad will serve us well as we take off to our next destination.
Soaring through Los Angeles, we’ll then take you into the intellectual hub that is the San Gabriel Valley. Be sure to visit some of the finest schools and universities our country has to offer while enjoying the view from an estate in Pasadena or La Cañada Flintridge.
After taking in the San Gabriel Valley views, we’ll make a beeline to the majestic Pacific Coast to explore the finest ocean estates in the world. My personal favorite? 22506 Pacific Coast Highway – a spectacular ocean-front residence coming in at a cool $57.5 million. Who doesn’t want to wake up to the grandeur of the Pacific Ocean?
A profile of extreme global wealth wouldn’t be complete without the third richest man in the world: Warren Buffett. Buffett has an ocean-side pad for sale in the prestigious Laguna Beach. The famous investor demonstrated why he is considered one of the all-time greatest by purchasing the home for $150,000 in 1971. Today, this seaside escape can be yours for $11 million.
Of course, this show could never transpire without the exceptional and dedicated teams of real estate brokers and agents. In this issue, we recognize the best real estate professionals out there so our readers know who to call for their next ultra-luxury transaction. We have an exclusive interview with the man who has transformed the real estate industry and is on top of the charts year after year: Mauricio Umansky.
As the top luxury publication in all of Los Angeles, we bring only the best that LA and the international world around us can offer. This issue, climb aboard and we will take you to all the top real estate destinations of the world: New York, Las Vegas, London, Dubai, Hong Kong, and of course this extraordinary place we call home – Los Angeles.
Only one question remains: Where will you buy?
