OFF THE GRID DOESN'T HAVE TO MEAN SLUMMING IT IN MAUI
Just walking out of the airport in Maui makes you never want to go home. With this $14.7-million, 28-acre estate, you could avoid that internal conflict. Built into a hillside with 180-degree ocean views, the four-bedroom, six-bath home has three guest suites complete with outdoor showers, and it all runs on solar power. Transportation is covered in the sale price, too. The home comes with a Tesla electric car for trips to town and a golf cart for negotiating the practice hole on the property. Taxes are $39,000 yearly.
RELAXING IN RIO DE JANEIRO
How much does it cost to get outside the hustle and congestion of Rio and be near Gavea Golf Club? About $5 million. This six-bedroom villa, just a few miles from the Olympic Village, has a wine cellar, pool, lake and 20-car parking. Your staff won't suffer, either. The 13,000-square-foot main house has two servants' bedrooms, and the caretaker can hang out in the separate two-bedroom cottage on the property.
MAKING GREENWICH GREAT
A lot of high-end Greenwich, Conn., real estate is based on one-upmanship from the hedge-fund set. Drop the mic with this $50-million estate, which occupies this peninsula on Long Island Sound. Formerly owned by Donald Trump, the circa-1939 palace has eight bedrooms, 10 baths, a practice green and a guest house magnificent enough to have an indoor pool.
