Hot Houses: Jeff Bridges' Tuscan-style mansion and Candace Bushnell's charming farmhouse

Each week picks its Top 3 over-the-top luxury listings from Mansion Global.

This week we have a seven-story London mansion fit for royalty, Jeff Bridge’s former Montecito estate and "Sex & the City" author Candace Bushnell's Connecticut country house.

It doesn’t get much more posh than this seven-story 7,761-square-foot mansion on Chester Square in one of London’s most desirable neighborhoods. The home has eight bedrooms, two of which occupy an entire floor each.

There are seven bathrooms, a drawing room with a balcony overlooking the garden square, a roof terrace and a stunning wine cellar.

A mews house, a small cottage that once kept horses, sits behind the main property and is now linked to the house on three floors, greatly increasing the living space. The mews contains entertaining space, a cinema room and a family room.

The lower ground floor contains a yoga studio and treatment room.

The property has been fully updated with a state of the art lighting control system, an elevator and underfloor heating.

You’ll be in good company. Chester Square’s past occupants range from the former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher to Rolling Stone Mick Jagger.

Across the pond, Jeff Bridges has just slashed the price on his stunning Montecito estate. The “Big Lebowski” star originally listed this Tuscan-style beauty for $29.5 million. The actor and his wife Susan are looking to downsize and have reduced the price to just $18.5 million.

The 9,500-square-foot, five-bedroom main house boasts sweeping mountain and ocean views.

The Dude’s property also contains a music recording studio, a small vineyard, a one-bedroom guest cottage, a two-bedroom caretaker’s cottage and a swimming pools.

Bridges first bought the properly in 1994 from singer Kenny Loggins and have used it as their main home ever since.

And finally, we have the adorable Connecticut Victorian owned by Sex & the City writer Candace Bushnell.

The three-bedroom, 1,429-square foot home comes with its very own apple orchard. The grounds are also home to a saltwater pool, a well-manicured rose garden and three acres that can be used for cross-country skiing.

Even though the 126-year old main house has been restored it still maintains plenty of charming details, like wood plank floors, a stone fire place and a tin kitchen ceiling.

The Roxbury village has been home to plenty of writers. Both Arthur Miller and Frank McCourt once called the town home.
