Carnoustie, named for the Scottish town, occupies eight acres in Ocean Colony, a luxury home development in Half Moon Bay, California. Homes here feature New England Coastal, English Cottage, and French Normandy styles and offer up to 3,400 square feet of living space on lots with ocean and golf course views. Carnoustie is the final addition in Ocean Colony, making it the last opportunity to buy a new home in the upscale community. Nearby are the Ritz-Carlton, two championship golf courses, a spa, and a tennis club. Phase one of the development consists of approximately nine homes, which went on the market in May. Carnoustie home prices start at around $1.4 million. carnoustiehomes.com.
The Brooklyn-born singer/songwriter Barry Manilow still has his Malibu home on the market, but now with a price cut. The home, which Manilow bought for $3.85 million in 2002, hit the market in 2009 with an asking price of $12million. Now the ocean front estate is down to $6.999 million.
The gated home, which was built in 1976, has 5 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, media room and floor to cieling windows that make up the two-story living room. In addition there is a detached 1 bedroom guest house and flagstone courtyard.

Minimalist splendor combines with Anguilla’s rugged natural beauty at the luxurious Ani Villas. By Paul Rubio
Ani Villas is a spectacular contemporary estate perched on the cliffs of Anguilla’s north shore. Separated as the North and South Villas, the two five-bedroom, 10,000-square-foot luxury homes commingle tropical elegance with Scandinavian design prowess. The fundamentals of earth, air, and water are represented by walls of textured raw woods, hardwood furnishings, floor-to-ceiling windows, glass balconies, a five-story open floor plan, and tranquil water gardens.
Arranged within desert, tropical, and indigenous landscaping, the seductive infinity pools, expansive lounge areas, and elevated hot tubs positioned near the cliffs’ edge capture the island’s beauty at panoramic vantage points.
Directly below the villas, accessible by a short walking trail, the island’s top snorkeling spot teems with marine life. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy the tennis court, mountain biking trails, the neighboring Greg Norman-designed championship golf course, and kayaks for exploring Little Bay. When privacy becomes too confining and the house staff all too familiar, Anguilla awaits new explorers. Hop in the complimentary house car and experience the island’s burgeoning restaurant scene, its laid-back nightlife, or yet more of its renowned waters.
The two villas can be rented separately or together as an estate; a five-night minimum is required in either case. $30,000-$40,000 (villa), $51,000-$68,000 (full estate) per week. 264-497-7888, anivillas.com.
Far from your usual stand-alone condominium project, the Garza Blanca Preserve comprises a private and exclusive planned community of penthouses and two- and three-bedroom residences on an 88-acre property that extends from jungle-covered hillsides to the famous Garza Blanca Beach, just 10 minutes south of downtown Puerto Vallarta.
The Preserve’s beach area has 46 two-bedroom, three-bedroom, and penthouse residences. Six penthouses are in the Atrium building and have a level of service and convenience that is unavailable at any other of the resort locations. Two additional beachfront buildings, each with 18 residences and two penthouses, are located on the south side of the beach. Phase I penthouses range from 3,714 square feet to 6,109 square feet. Two- and three-bedroom residences starting at 2,260 square feet also are available. All residences have large balconies.
Currently under development, the hillside area of Garza Blanca Preserve will have seven 12-story residential buildings with two units per floor. They will contain two- and three-bedroom units, as well as penthouses. Rock wall terraces with hanging gardens and four pool areas will highlight the hillside.
Amenities include a tennis club, a beach club, a European health spa, an executive fitness center, a retail village (with a deli, a market, shops, an Internet café, and a restaurant), and hiking trails leading to a common area with a waterfall. A pedestrian bridge, suitable for golf carts, connects the hillside and beachside areas, leading from the hillside directly to the main Atrium lobby, the beach, and the two beachfront infinity pools.
The beachfront phase is completed, and site work for the hillside residences is underway. Prices start at $929,000. garzablancapreserve.com.
