Two Disparate Developments on North Fork By T.J. Clemente The North Fork, with all its charms, is subtly changing. In recent weeks, two properties making news are the Anderegg Preserve, a 19-acre wooded parcel along Long Island Sound in Riverhead, which is being purchased then transferred to the Peconic Land Trust (PLT), and the Highlands Club, a residential development. This weekend, the management is holding a wine tasting there to educate interested individuals about its successful resort communities on the North Fork. But first, the preservation story. The Anderegg Preserve is dedicated to the memory of J. Philip Anderegg and Etiennette Trouve Anderegg. A generous donation to PLT for the acquisition of the property came from Anderegg’s estate, overseen by his friend and estate executor Arthur M. Tasker. Neighbor Randy Pratt was also extremely influential in this seamless transaction, thanks to his financial generosity and foresight. When this property was initially up for sale, a 90-unit condominium development was planned. Pratt reportedly said, “The only options I could see were to sell our property, or to try and buy that land. We ended up buying the property, but we also knew, based on conversations with our financial advisor and Tim (Caulfield, Vice President of PLT) that we should keep our options open. So, while we had protected a lot of our property, this was still developable. Finding a conservation buyer, with the same interest in seeing this property remain undeveloped, was very lucky for us.”

According to Yvette DeBowSalsedo, Director of Marketing & Communications at PLT, “The new collection of 65 acres of protected natural lands, in which the Anderegg Preserve is now a part, boasts beautiful view sheds in every direction, a variety of flora, fauna and wildlife, as well as a range of sensitive natural areas, including uplands, bluffs, ravines, coastal wetland areas and beachfront.” In short, preserving it was a great coup for the area. Explaining the motivations behind the donation, Tasker reportedly noted that Anderegg wished his estate to be used for the preservation of lands that would be “forever wild.” “The majority of Philip Anderegg’s estate was directed toward the purchase of land to be kept forever wild, or to an organization whose mission and goals were to do that,” Tasker reportedly said. According to DeBow-Salsedo, in addition to the protection of this property, Tasker has made contributions from the Anderegg Estate to two other conservation projects: the 4,000-acre Kahtadin Lake project in Maine through the Trust for Public Land, and the Finch, Pruyn & Company, Inc. property, with 160,000 acres in the heart of the Adirondacks, through The Nature Conservancy. Other properties in Montana and Rhode Island are currently under consideration.

Tasker, who was born and raised in Greenport, has a special affinity for Long Island’s East End, and is pleased to have been able to identify an appropriate local project— significant natural land—for the estate to protect. The Highlands Club, on the other hand, is a development that shows smart tasteful design along with wise ownership and stewardship. The proud owners and members of the Highlands Club are inviting all to meet on Saturday, Sept. 26, between 3 and 5 p.m. Many successful and prudent retirees are now in a position to find a community worthy of their standard of living. With the many selective activities available both recreationally and socially, The Highlands Club is making the point to showcase why their homeowners are happy with their choice to live in one of the two communities developed by the Highlands Communities developers. Although these two developments seem to be from the opposite spectrum of thought, the truth is both are needed and valuable. We need to protect what is very dear—the wonderful historic landscapes of the North Fork—but we also need tasteful development for the new retirement community that will make up more than 40% of the country’s population in the next 10 years, and hold perhaps as much as 80% of its wealth.
