Before we dive into this week’s property, the Estate Elegance team wanted to share a timely video on an industry that fuels our newsletter: home search portals. The competition in this space is fierce, and CoStar-owned Homes.com has made a splash and is here to break away from the competition. In less than a year, homes.com has claimed its space in the industry as the #2 home search portal in the industry as they broke took their traffic to new heights in September 2023 with 100 million unique visitors, according to Yahoo Finance. Success has come with a bit of criticism from the competition, Realtor.com, over the principles of Homes.com’s “Your listing, your lead” business model. If you’re a real estate professional, CoStar Group’s CEO and Founder, Andy Florance’s letter to the industry emphasizes Homes.com principles, their position toward the National Association of Realtors (NAR) and their promise to put realtors first is a must read.

For a detailed over, Bryon Lazine and Nicole White went over the email thoroughly in this week’s episode of The Real Word.

Imagine yourself waking up in the grandeur of your Indian Wells estate at 47625 E Vintage Drive, a sanctuary where luxury and exclusivity converge. As the owner of this $7,295,000 property, your day begins with the sun gently illuminating the sprawling 12,507 square feet of living space, highlighting the exquisite interior design that defines your home. Stepping out of your lavish bedroom, you're greeted by the breathtaking views of the golf course and the majestic mountains, visible through the expansive windows.

Your morning unfolds leisurely, perhaps starting with a coffee in your gourmet kitchen, followed by a stroll along the landscaped terraced path that leads through your property. The tranquility of the meandering lake and waterfalls bordering the golf course provides a serene backdrop for your morning contemplation.

As the day warms, you might choose to retreat to the lower-level environment, a 3,500+/- square foot space dedicated to entertainment and relaxation. Here, you could indulge in a game of billiards, watch a movie in your private theater, or enjoy a workout in your fully equipped gym.

In the afternoon, the outdoor spaces of your estate call for your attention. Perched upon a 31,798+/- square foot elevated lot, your home offers a vantage point like no other. You lounge by the pool, soaking in the California sun, or perhaps host a lunch on your patio, where the indoor-outdoor flow of your home makes entertaining effortless and enjoyable.

As evening approaches, the sunset casts a golden hue over the golf course, creating a picturesque scene. You might find yourself hosting friends for dinner, utilizing the expansive dining areas both inside and outside, where every meal is complemented by the stunning views and the all-inclusive ambiance of your home.

Your night concludes with a retreat to one of your luxurious bedrooms, each a haven of comfort and style. As you drift to sleep, you reflect on the beauty and tranquility of your Indian Wells estate, a place where every day is an experience in unparalleled luxury and serenity.
