International dream home listings with Tom Bowden

Take a look at some of the world’s latest dream home listings for multi-millionaires. This week, real estate writer Tom Bowden checks out homes in The USA, Greece and, a bit close to home, Victoria, Australia


If you’re looking to live large on a sprawling estate, 4649 Saint Laurent Court, Fort Worth, may be just the place you’ve been looking for.

Just look at it — it looks more like a resort than a home! The home is set in the luxury gated estate Montserrat and offers five bedrooms, six bathrooms and sits on an acre-and-a-half of landscaped grounds.

Designed to be a grand entertainer, it has all the lifestyle features you could want. There’s a tennis court, a putting green, an outdoor kitchen, a pool with waterslide and a cabana.

There’s also a media room, a games room, a huge craft room and two separate garages with room for eight cars. And, given the area is no stranger to the odd Hollywood starlet, there’s also a state-of-the-art security system with a stack of cameras to protect you from the prying eyes of the world’s media.

The home is on the market with Christies International Real Estate. Price not disclosed.

Greece’s waters have a magical ability to soothe the body and cleanse the soul, with some of the most visually spectacular stretches of coast in the world.

Imagine that picturesque ocean being the first thing you see when you wake, and that last thing you see when you close your eyes.

Well, in this stunning Mykonos mansion, those dreams become reality.

Offering 472sqm of living space on 1248sqm of landscaped gardens, the home has five bedrooms, five bathrooms and luxe fittings at every turn.

Built from local materials, the home is a textural showcase, beautifully blending quality timber and stone features. If you’re an entertainer then this place definitely has you covered, with plenty of space for all your highfalutin’ guests to mill around the sparkling pool, enjoy a drink on the balcony or take a walk down your own private path to the beach.

IT is being touted as having Melbourne’s best pool, but that’s only part of the luxury package on offer in this Beaumaris beauty.

Dreamt up by acclaimed Chris Clout Design and made a reality by renowned builder Wayne Pastor, the home has high end features at every turn and offers a true resort lifestyle.

A showcase of the finest materials available, the home has Miele appliances, rough-hewn limestone and veined Silstone details, a wall of oak, a statement gas fireplace, an open-stringer staircase and designer lighting throughout. And the pool of the three-bedroom Hodges-listed home?

That comes complete with a deck bridge, a glass-walled spa and sits alongside a sunken conversation pit. You’ll never need to pay for an overseas holiday again.
