Whether newly built or undergoing renovation, these remarkable homes have recently hit the market—and are poised to capture the attention of style-minded buyers.

Location: Beverly Hills, Calif.; Price: $36 million
Finished this month, this 11,200-square-foot estate offers expansive views— from downtown Los Angeles to Catalina Island—from its elevated 36,000-square-foot lot. The Los Angeles–based builder and designer Michael Palumbo, of Palumbo Design, and Marc Whipple, architect and founder of the city’s Whipple Russell Architects, designed the three-story residence, which includes five bedrooms and nine bathrooms, and a separate guesthouse with one bedroom, one bathroom, and a private gym. Among the main house’s features and amenities are a glass-walled six-car garage, a home theater, a wine room, a Crestron home automation system, Miele kitchen appliances, an infinity pool with a Jacuzzi, and a private deck off the master bedroom with a large fire pit and a personal Jacuzzi. Available through Mauricio Umansky, the Agency, 424.230.3701, www.theagencyre.com

Location: Miami; Price: $16.5 million
The desirable Sunset Islands enclave, which offers residential proximity to South Beach, is the setting for this 10,500-square-foot estate. The Miami-based contractor Bart Reines Construction is in the final phases of building the seven-bedroom home, which upon completion in November will feature large windows, a central courtyard, and a bay-front pool with an outdoor shower. Amenities will include wood floors and a boat dock with a lift. Available through Esther Percal, EWM Realty International/Christie’s International Real Estate, 305.674.4022, www.christiesrealestate.com

Location: New York City; Price: $23 million
Penthouse One is the last available residence in the “sky garage” building—the 4-year-old tower designed by Selldorf Architects at 200 11th Avenue in West Chelsea. The 4,266-square-foot penthouse (including 668 exterior square feet), located on the 12th and 13th floors of the 19-story structure, offers three bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, and two terraces with unobstructed views of the Hudson River and the Chelsea Piers. The highlight is the unit’s one-car garage en suite, which is accessible via a private 8,000-pound-capacity elevator. Youngwoo & Associates—the developer of New York’s Pier 57 project—is redesigning the penthouse with the Rotterdam, Netherlands–based architecture firm MVRDV. Completion is expected next month. Available through Ryan Serhant, Nest Seekers International, 646.443.3705, www.nestseekers.com
