The World’s Finest Estates 2014

The BVI’s “Signature Villa,” Steele Point, is for sale. Named after the peninsula upon which this unique home is perched, Steele Point is located in the breathtaking British Virgin Islands on the very western tip of Tortola, an island surrounded by the most beautiful sailing waters in the world.

Built atop a 90-foot rock headland and reaching all the way down to its own private dock, Steele Point offers complete privacy, unobstructed views of the opalescent waters below and a dramatic 360-degree panorama of ocean, yachts and largely undeveloped islands. The structure is a dazzling triumph of structural grace and ingenuity, attributes that prompted it to be featured in many luxury magazines, including Architectural Digest. In 2010, Caribbean Travel + Life noted that Steele Point is “ … doubtless one of the most astonishing rental homes on earth.” Since then, this iconic property has benefited from a two-year complete refurbishment and is in immaculate condition.

The main house welcomes you with an open, airy feeling. The villa features patios, courtyards, indoor and alfresco dining areas, and five air-conditioned suites, all with private full baths. The raised, open plan living, dining and kitchen area has been completely remodeled. The professional grade kitchen has been ingeniously re-fashioned and re-shaped to work wonderfully in the space. Millwork, countertops and appliances are all of the highest standard.

The lounge area, which like the rest of the house has been completely refinished, is light, relaxed and comfortable and features all modern conveniences. The dock can accommodate the largest of yachts. And there are few more romantic places on the planet to share a meal than on the covered dining terrace at Steele Point!

Unprecedented Luxury Living Comes To Miami
1000 Museum
Presented by Chris Soares

Miami introduces 1000 Museum, a first to trump all design and architectural standards giving new meaning to luxury living. This dramatic and stunning 60-story structure towers over Biscayne Bay and downtown Miami, and is the first project by Pritzker Prize winning, world-renowned architect Zaha Hadid in the Western Hemisphere. Hadid plays with complex and bold design elements featuring half and full-floor residences ranging from 4,600 to over 16,000 square feet. The building’s unique, curved and futuristic exoskeleton eliminates the need for interior beams creating a flow-through design that allows each unit to have sunrise and sunset views.

1000 Museum’s customized floor plans offer ultra-luxurious amenities, such as: private security detail, concierge, indoor and outdoor pool, spa, wellness center, a bank-style vault, and a helipad. The $45 million penthouse masterpiece has more than 16,000 sq. ft. of spectacular bay and city views, and its own private and exclusive roof-top helipad lounge. With six bedrooms, six and half baths, this stunning penthouse is furniture ready with exquisite interiors and finishing touches that have been designed and approved by Hadid herself – a true work of art.

Miami is the most important place to live, play and invest in right now. Never before has a city been so poised to embrace cutting-edge architecture, along with magnificent design, art, and culture, as today. Visit Miami and you may just end up swapping your wool for crisp linen, and your scotch for a cool mojito and soak in the rays of this burgeoning city.

IMI Design Studio

When Anita Lang talks about design, she literally glows; a beautiful smile illuminates her entire being and her passion radiates out. To anyone watching, it is clear that her natural talent and her daily work are in complete harmony.

Anita Lang’s enthusiasm for creating uplifting and inspiring design has been the driving force in her career. She founded IMI Design, a concierge service level interior design studio in 1992 to serve her clients in their quests for the ultimate luxury and comfort. According to Anita, life should be full of nothing but spectacular. “There is no room for mediocrity in design,” she says.

Lang and her team at IMI Design constantly stand up for their clients’ dreams, no matter how impossible they seem. With a sparkle in her eye, Anita Lang adds: “Just because something has not been done before does not mean it cannot be done.” “No” just does not exist in the IMI vocabulary.

In an ongoing campaign to break the mold of traditional design firms, IMI Design launched their Smart LuxuryTM and Smart ConciergeTM programs in 2013. Smart LuxuryTM is the design plan that walks clients through the phases of their project while ensuring each step is customized specifically for their individual needs and wishes. Smart ConciergeTM is an added-benefit program available exclusively to IMI clients — past and present.

“When you walk into our spaces, they resonate with an energy based on love of beauty and truth in design,” she adds. Anita Lang ended with a challenge to the readers: “When you’re in your home or office, take a moment to notice the space around you. Is it living up to who you are? Imagine the impact on your life if you lived each day in a space that is truly inspiring.”
