Manhattanites tired of tower living can cross the water to this twenties English Tudor home on what may be one of the loveliest blocks in famously lovely Brooklyn Heights. But why stop there? Across the Atlantic is Begur, an ancient fishing village in the Costa Brava region of Spain where this five-bedroom villa is located. It’s got sandy beaches; medieval, Romanesque, and Gothic architecture; class-A golfing; and more tranquillity than a view of the Hudson. Salvador Dalí’s hometown of Figueres is just up the coast. But be sure you’re ready to give up Chinese-food delivery before you go; Begur has only 4,300 year-round inhabitants, so when the novelty of endless siestas fades, you’ll have to drive two hours to Barcelona for that big-city fix.
