It’s been an established trend for the last few years in the luxury residential space: affluent buyers want new construction. This month’s collection of new $10 million+ listings illustrates this point beautifully. Dominating the list are a handful of spectacular mansions with 2021 completion dates, including a modern designer waterfront showpiece in Boca Raton and a chic gated estate in California’s San Marino. There’s even a rare oceanfront property in Santa Barbara’s Hope Ranch topping our list that is currently underway — not even completely built yet. That’s not to say there aren’t some truly remarkable properties with a past, like the “Under the Tuscan Sun” dream-inducing 14th-century wine country estate. For more inspiration, read on:
