There’s nothing better than summertime in California. With our sunny skies, gorgeous beaches and lively ambiance, the Golden State is the perfect place to relish those warm summer days and cool summer nights.

Coldwell Banker Previews International® explores the beauty of summertime living with its latest version of Homes & Estates, a magazine that displays stunning luxury homes all over Northern California.

For those who are looking for a summer getaway where the plane ride isn’t too long but the feeling is still of a true vacation, the magazine showcases exceptional homes in Utah, Colorado and Hawaii that might catch your attention.

Gracing the cover of the magazine is Villa Madre, a winery and vineyard estate like no other. With approximately 80 acres (including 60-lush-acres of planted Cabernet grapes), luxurious architectural design inside and out, and ultra-cool amenities like a fully enclosed pool and spa, this home is the perfect cover property to represent the beauty of living in Northern California.

From Placerville to Los Gatos, Carmel Highlands to Hillsborough, Homes & Estates takes us on a whimsical journey throughout the region to find homes that are unique as the locations they are set in.
