6 local drool-worthy homes you have to see to believe


This post is brought to you in partnership with Savvy + Co. Real Estate. All opinions are our own.

What makes a home truly drool-worthy? The kind where you walk through the front door and wander around mouth open, eyes wide? One where the “wow” factor does not slow down for a second, from top-of-the-world locations to resort-inspired pools and spas? Kitchens that are almost too stunning to use, secret entrances, and a garage for your dream roadsters — all in one place?

C5 asked the experts at Savvy + Co. Real Estate to share their favorite “OMG” homes, and they delivered. Best of all, they are available, so if one catches your eye, you can take a look in person.
