Ultimate Home Tour: A Great Estate

A significant residence does not simply burst onto the scene. It typically gestates for a year on the drawing boards, then takes two years to construct and yet another year to finalize the furnishings and landscaping. Building the perfect home takes time.

Robb Report’s third annual Ultimate Home Tour required a shorter incubation period—and fewer building permits. Our great estate is a composite of different rooms and exteriors, each created by a leading architect or interior designer for a specific client. How were we able to bring such disparate styles and personalities together in such close quarters? Simple: We created an imaginary house where we could show the full gamut of styles, from classic to contemporary, coexisting peacefully under one roof.

This way, we have the best of all worlds. Harmony reigns, and the result is  some carefree construction.
