Enough Realism. Live the Dream.

Jennifer Thornton, Karina Timmel, and Beth Weitzman | September 26, 2012 | Story Further Afield

YOUR NEW DIGS: Montage Deer Valley
Pick one of 81 whole-ownership residences on the top floors of an over-the-top, mid-mountain resort ensconced in featherlight Utah powder. Choose from two-to four-bedroom units with coffered ceilings, flickering fireplaces, and private balconies overlooking feet of heavenly snow in your backyard. $2 million–$10 million and up.

YOUR NEW HOMETOWN: Vancouver, Canada
YOUR NEW DIGS: Rosewood Hotel Georgia
We here in San Francisco love Vancouver. Must be the squeaky-clean streets, snowcapped mountains, and Canadian good cheer. Or maybe it‘s the fact that you can have all that, plus eat exceptionally well at restaurants like Hawksworth, which could be your virtual kitchen if you splurged on one of these high-tech condos with views of the mountains, the city, and the sea. $1.3 million–$9 million.

YOUR NEW HOMETOWN: Santa Fe, New Mexico
YOUR NEW DIGS: Fairmont Heritage Place
This pueblo revival–style residence overlooks the historic downtown square and is oh-so Santa Fe, with clay-plaster walls and decorative ironwork. Best of all, it’s just steps from all the delicious chili-infused Tex-Mex you can eat. From $185,000 for a fractional ownership, from $500,000 for a whole.

YOUR NEW HOMETOWN: Aspen, Colorado
YOUR NEW DIGS: Dancing Bear
Each of the nine three-bedroom residences—right in downtown Aspen—comes with mountain views and a granite kitchen, plus two fireplaces, steam showers and soaking tubs, private access to the wine cellar, and a wraparound rooftop terrace. Amenities include a fitness center, daily breakfast, a movie theater, a ski valet, and regular cocktail gatherings—so you won’t miss the city for a second. Six weeks per year for $625,000, plus annual dues of $24,000.
