Honor. Respect. Distinction. Originally named after Rome’s first emperor Caesar Augustus, the month of August has long been associated with these qualities. The adjective august describes something that is respected and impressive, even to this day.

Where are the august homes of our time? They can be found in the golden bluffs of Beverly Hills or along the crystal waters of Lake Austin. They live in far-flung seaside villages like Grimaud or on Florida’s sun-soaked shores. These newly listed residences marketed by the Coldwell Banker Global Luxury℠ program represent the finest in construction, in architecture, in materiality, and in style, elevated by their owners’ careful stewardship and enduring quest for quality.
