Situated next door to Ted Turner’s 32,000-acre property is Oak Hill Plantation — 1,000 acres of lovingly tended natural habitat with a Greek Revival abode designed and built by owners T.K. Wetherell and his wife, Virginia, a high-profile duo some call the “First Couple of Conservation in Florida.”

Looking for a romantic second home deep in the heart of art-centric Santa Fe? The Canyon Road compound of an iconic artist who was instrumental in developing New Mexico’s rich art scene is on the market. It’s a historic property (dating back to the 1700s) that’s been meticulously renovated and is now up for grabs. Best of all it sits in the midst of the Canyon Road art scene, steps away from the galleries, museums, restaurants, and boutiques that made us fall in love with Santa Fe.
