If your searching for a new luxury home, why not try looking at… podcasts?
In a first for a high-end real estate network, Christie’s Great Estates launched a series of luxury lifestyle video podcasts this month, providing potential homebuyers with an in-depth look into the history of a property and the lifestyle it offers. The visually rich podcasts—narrated by the homesellers themselves—are reserved for the most distinguished and facinating estates on the market and are available for viewing on the Video Gallery section of www.christiesgreatestates.com.
A Home For Art- Inspirador in Arizona
Narrated by noted art Belgian collector Mr. Stephane Janssen, the video podcast of Inspirador in Scottsdale, Arizona, is the featured podcast on www.christiesgreatestates.com. Mr. Janssen provides a guided tour of his Pueblo-influenced home, designed specifically to showcase his more than 4,000 works of art.
He adds fascinating personal anecdotes about various elements of the residence including the doors, outdoor sculptures, and architectural features—all of which are pieces of art in themselves.
