Three waterfront residences meeting Global Luxury criteria in home series

Coldwell Banker Global Luxury properties are marketed to a broader international audience, primarily through the ColdwellBankerLuxury.com website. These properties must meet the criteria of the global luxury brand and we have several currently listed. I have selected three waterfront residences listed in the last couple of months and their communities for this Home Showcase Series.
