Great Spaces: Gorgeous Grounds for May

With spring thawing out many areas of the country, this month, we're exploring homes with gorgeous grounds so that we can all set our sights on garden days to come.

Immaculate Mexico Mansion

This immaculate property located in Careyes, Mexico, is surrounded by the Pacific Ocean on three sides. Sprawling over three acres, this 18,000-square-foot, six-bedroom villa was designed by Mexico City-based architect Manolo Mestre. Currently owned by Dick Butera, former owner of Hotel Jerome in Aspen, Colo., Casa Millas is equipped with five infinity pools. The real standout feature, however, is its master suite. Acting as a private island in one of the home's pools, the master suite is a 1,000-square-foot circular structure with a private roof deck and patio terrace.

Enchanting Florida Estate

"Enchanting" is the best word to describe the grounds at this 10-bedroom, 13-bathroom Coral Gables estate. The 2.87-acre gated property features a winding drive lined with 100 majestic oak trees, giving the 15,668-square-foot estate the signature sense that it was plucked from a fairy tale. Built in 2003, the property includes a pool with a fountain, a tennis court, home theater and study. The home is currently owned by Roy Donahue "Don" Peebles, real estate entrepreneur, author and political activist. - Irving Padron - 11501 Old Cutler Rd-3-Web (1) - Irving Padron - 11501 Old Cutler Rd-23-Web (1) - Irving Padron - 11501 Old Cutler Rd-1-Web (1)
