ecrett Gem

Cape Cod, Massachusetts By Elyse Umlauf-Garneau

E

Especially in recent years, luxury has been associated girth, glitter and a bit of swagger. A Chatham, Massachusetts property stands as confirmation that luxury need not entail that flash and glam, nor embrace the "bigger is better" mantra. Instead, this graceful gem earns its luxury stripes by tucking itself into the land, showing off clean, simple lines and delivering essential comfort.

The property comprises 8.25 acres and features two houses. The three-bedroom guest house serves as its public face, and concealed behind it is the three-bedroom main house. That main house, set on Harper's Island, is accessible only via a 300-foot-long footbridge. The property was designed by Polhemus Savery DaSilva Architects Builders, a Cape Cod design firm that Chris Rhinesmith lauds for its ability to create one-of-a-kind houses that simultaneously give a nod to Cape Cod architecture, yet depart from tradition in unique and interesting ways. "The main house has a Cape and coastal feeling, but it's literally unlike anything else," observes Rhinesmith, broker/owner of Pine Acres Realty in Chatham. Polhemus Savery DaSilva faced unique site and environmental constraints that influenced the design. For instance, it was required to deposit a modern, luxury property on the footprint of two kit houses that had previously existed on the site. It succeeded in doing so by designing one section to house a master suite and connecting it to another space for additional bedrooms and the open great room that combines living, kitchen and dining space. 10

Natural materials, such as wood and stone, along with cantilevered bay windows, high ceilings and decks all work in concert to visually marry the property with the site. "The outdoor space is as compelling as the indoor space," says Rhinesmith. In fact he counts the exterior and the privacy it affords among the home's greatest luxuries. It includes ever-changing views of the salt marsh, Buck's Creek, Nantucket Sound, open space and private shows put on by osprey, egrets and blue herons. "The views are layered and dynamic," he adds.

PUBLISHER’S LETTER

AUGUST 2010

PRESIDENT/PUBLISHER Sheri Norris, snorris@dupontregistry.com

Dear Reader, This issue celebrates our fifteenth anniversary of A Buyers Gallery of Fine Homes®. It all started back in 1995 when we decided to launch a magazine dedicated to the buying and selling of luxury homes, after ten years of success with A Buyers Gallery of Fine Automobiles ®. In an article featured in The Tampa Tribune January 30, 1995, staff writer Jim Riley introduced our next venture—a home magazine. A lot has changed since then. Publishing has seen many technological advances over the last few decades and so has the luxury marketplace. In fact, if you were to pour through hundreds upon hundreds of back issues of the duPont REGISTRYTM and distill them into one, you would have a compendium of market history and knowledge. We have seen recessions come and go and we’re watching as the most recent one slowly fades away in the rearview mirror. The luxury homes featured in this edition aren’t your typical estates. You will find them on secluded lakes, with breathtaking views of mountains and beautiful countryside, and in locales just minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge and the Las Vegas Strip. We hope you enjoy these amazing homes. We thank all of our loyal clients and advertisers who have stuck with us over the years. There are many indications that the luxury home market is making a come-back, and that real estate is still a good long-term investment. Keep us in mind whether you are buying or selling your home, and be sure to check us out online at www.duPontREGISTRY.com. Warmest Regards,

Thomas L. duPont Publisher and Chairman duPont Publishing, Inc.

MARKET INSIGHT

ST. SIMONS ISLAND, GEORGIA

NO BETTER PLACE IN THE WORLD By Elyse Umlauf-Garneau In the forty-two years that Susan Hardwick has lived on St. Simons Island in Georgia, she's seen the island evolve from a retirement retreat to a vibrant, year-round community. Having grown up in Chicago, she's known both city and island living and opted for the gentility and calm of the southern island. This year, Hardwick, associate broker of Sea Palms Realty, celebrates her twenty-sixth year as a real estate practitioner. When the island was lauded by Money magazine in 2006, it didn't surprise her. After all, she says, "It has a great climate, sandy beaches, lush marshes , and the gorgeous live oaks are something to see." Though outsiders think of it as a vacation getaway, what they don't realize is that St. Simons offers a strong job base. Hardwick points to an active port and a seafood industry as just two employment sources. Moreover, the island represents a relatively affordable alternative to pricier nearby venues. For instance, an appealing alternative to the full-tilt luxury property is the patio home option. The properties are smaller luxury homes situated in gated communities, and prices range from the mid$300,000 to the mid-$400,000.

There are, of course, an array of high-end homes. One such property, listed by Hardwick, features three bedrooms and three bathrooms and overlooks a marsh. The house, built in 2001, includes 2,081 square feet and an oversized garage that can house three cars. The asking price of $795,000 includes the membership entry fee into the Sea Palms Golf & Tennis Resort. The resort's primary draw is its twenty-seven golf holes on three newly renovated courses. Moreover, the views on the course, including lagoons and marshes and live oaks, are a bonus. The Sea Palms Golf & Tennis Resort isn't the only game in town for golf aficionados, however. The island offers more than two-hundred golf holes scattered among private and public courses. Given the area's wealth of golf resources, it's no surprise to locals that St. Simons was chosen as the site for the McGladrey Classic, a PGA Tour event scheduled for October 7-10, 2010. As golf columnist Stan Awtrey put it in a story earlier this year, "...there's no question that the PGA TOUR has made a smart decision to bring an event to Sea Island. The rest of the world will learn in October what the rest of us have known for years. There's no better place in the world.

The properties offer buyers all the pleasures of the island, such as golf, boating and beaching, along with tennis and swimming and fitness centers in gated environments. The upside for buyers is that the communities are secure and managed, so there's no maintenance. The concept is particularly appealing to the second homeowners. "These properties are such a great way to enjoy the community and the island without having to worry about the house, " comment Hardwick.

ts sunny climate may have earned it the nickname, the Golden State, but California, specifically Southern California, is all that and more. “You just can’t beat the weather,” says Lee Ann Canaday, owner/broker with RE/MAX Fine Homes in Laguna Beach and Newport Beach, a specialist in high-end properties in Orange County and L.A. County plus a short sale department. “On a horrible day, it is still beautiful here.” Southern California’s sunny disposition lends itself nicely to an active lifestyle. Equestrian pursuits, golfing, and boating are just some of the activities that are popular here. Big Bear Lake and Lake Arrowhead, both located in the San Bernardino National Forest, are easy getaways for year-round enjoyment. “A lot of people buy vacation homes here,” Canaday says. The desert communities of the Coachella Valley, which includes Palm Springs, are another desirable spot to purchase vacation homes. “In the Southern California coastal area, people have second homes in either the mountains or the desert because both are within a two-hour drive,” says Canaday. Plentiful beaches run along the coastline with Newport Beach and Laguna Beach being exceptional standouts. Boating is big here and Newport Harbor offers an abundance of homes right on the water.

MARKET INSIDER

MARIN COUNTY, CALIFORNIA A COLLECTION OF QUAINT VILLAGES Just north of the Golden Gate Bridge you will find the bucolic county of Marin, well known for its abundance of natural beauty. This progressive county is a collection of villages, each with its own personality and amenities. Chelsea and Karen Hardesty of Frank Howard Allen Realtors are a mother and daughter team who say that working together has allowed them to provide a high level of service to their clients. “One of us is always available,” says Chelsea, “giving our clients a sense that their real estate needs are always being met.” This is especially important when the market is as sensitive as it is now. Chelsea and Karen state that even though the foundation of real estate throughout the country has been shaken during the last couple of years, the housing market in Marin has remained relatively strong, going through a long-overdue correction but holding value better than most areas. The reasons for that are varied. They confirm that the residents of Marin value and support education and this is reflected in the high-scoring schools—a draw for families with children of all ages. Also, the fact that Marin is approximately 70% open space that cannot be built on, has curtailed development, making the inventory that does exist more valuable. “The close proximity to San Francisco and the broad economic base of the county have further insulated us from a deep regression of value,” says Karen. Karen has been a real estate broker for more than twenty-five years and has seen many fluctuations in the market. She still believes that over the long-term Marin County real estate is a good investment. She thinks it is a positive twist that people are now focused on a house as their home first and an investment second. Chelsea, who spent several years working in finance in San Francisco and London, agrees that there is no better place to put your money for future security. She left the finance world seven years ago for the opportunities she felt she could offer her clients in real estate and has never looked back.

available. I believe that market conditions then were just as challenging as they are today and the market came back. Real estate agents had to think outside the box and be adaptable to market conditions in order to best serve their clients.” The Hardesty’s believe that the same qualities in an agent are necessary today and they welcome searching for solutions for their clients. They have always viewed other agents throughout the county as colleagues, not competitors. This has served them well and led to success when the market gets tough. They belong to network groups of agents who support each other’s interests in best serving their clients. “This can make a difference in finding the right properties for our buyers for our listings,” says Chelsea. Karen agrees that this has been an invaluable component to their business. The Hardestys share a passion for their business that translates into the realization of their clients’ dreams. “Our desire is to give the people with whom we work the sense that they are our only clients. We understand that buying or selling a home is not only a financial but an emotional experience that deserves the highest standard of care. We are selective about the people with whom we work and strive to make each individual feel that they are our main focus. They deserve this, even if it means we work very long hours. This approach has led to an excellent and consistent repeat and referral business for the Hardestys, who treasure the relationships they have built in their profession.

Karen remembers the market conditions of 1979 and the early 1980s. “Interest rates were as high as 22% and there were no loans

Unbelievable Equestrian Vineyard Retreat San Juan Bautista, California SUPERBLY SITUATED high above the San Juan Valley, this exceptional estate offers the ultimate California lifestyle amidst a breathtaking mountaintop setting of a magnificent equestrian-style ranch with vineyard charm. Here, a world of enchantment and utmost privacy unfolds – location, location, location – allowing you to indulge in the best rural secluded living has to offer with all the conveniences of large urban metropolitan areas just a stones-throw away when desired. This private estate is conveniently situated within 30 minutes to Carmel and Monterey and approximately 40 minutes to the San Jose Airport. The ready access to popular destinations makes a day trip very feasible for a break in a rigorous schedule. The main residence encompasses 18,000± square feet of building area above grade, including the master suite and 5 guest suites (there are 6 bedrooms, 9 full and 2 half baths in total). The luxurious gourmet kitchen features granite countertops, cherry floors and cabinetry, Viking double ovens with six burner grills, 2 dishwashers, a walk-in pantry, plus a butler's pantry with additional storage and separate sub-zero refrigerator and freezer. The great room boasts aerobic-impact floor, a revolving observatory-style dome skylight which allows you to open the roof to the midnight skies, his-and-her locker rooms, an adjacent theater room and panoramic views of the farm-rich San Juan Valley below. Additional features include a lower-level wine cellar and tasting room with additional case storage, a 6-bay, 2,700-square-foot detached garage and a circular motor court. The estate is surrounded by acres of impeccably manicured landscaping with each room specially architected with its own special view and interaction to the surrounding grounds. Alternative possibilities for this incredible equestrian estate as a winery, corporate retreat, or spa are boundless. Expansive accommodations, sprawling rooms for meetings or seminars, and the special touch of a reclusive estate add to the impact this would have on clients and employees. Situated within close proximity to major airports, the struggles of arrival and departure for out of town personnel is eliminated, and the attraction of a resort quality destination is most effective. The main house is beautifully appointed for one-onone or large-number meetings, creating a peaceful work place as well as a retreat for rejuvenation and relaxation. Existing zoning has the possibility for many alternative uses (see San Benito County for possible use change permit information).

anta Barbara Beauty FEATURED PROPERTY

By Cathleen McCann

Citing Santa Barbara as her favorite place in the world, Suzanne Perkins, agent with Sotheby’s International Realty in Montecito, California, isn’t just saying that. A thirteen-year career as a flight attendant for Pan American World Airways allowed Perkins to travel the world many times over and visit the very best places the world has to offer. Santa Barbara, however, was the one place that stole her heart. “You can easily envision that you are someplace like the South of France or the coast of Italy when you are in Santa Barbara,” she says. “It has the same type of ambience.” A prime example of Santa Barbara’s best is the home at 3443 Padaro Lane. Located in one of Santa Barbara’s most exclusive beach areas, this $29-million home is situated on 1.13-acres of

waterfront property on Serena Cove. “The homes in this area are set back from the water so you have vast stretches of sand, expansive water views, and lots of privacy,” Perkins says. Its cedar shakes exterior is evocative of East coast beach resorts, but its architecture and open floor plan have a contemporary flair. Floor-to-ceiling windows in each room provide breathtaking unobstructed views of the water and lots of light. The master suite is on the entire second floor of the home and its bath has an amazing view of the cove, yet is completely private. Beautifully landscaped gardens are shaded with eucalyptus, cypress, and oak trees. A private interior courtyard patio has an outdoor fireplace, saltwater Jacuzzi, and beach access. New clay north/south tennis courts with lights and a beach volleyball court which is set up in the summer months are some of the home’s other unique features. In addition to the 5,979-square-foot main residence, a detached 883-square foot bunk house, which overlooks the tennis courts, sleeps eight and comes with a kitchenette and two baths. I

COLORADO—DENVER VER AREA

By Cathleen McCann

n abundance of outdoor activities to choose from year round bring people from around the world to Colorado, but its lucky residents have the very best right in their backyard. Golf, hiking, biking, and, of course, skiing are set among a breathtaking backdrop of mountain beauty. “You can really dictate the lifestyle you want here,” says Gary Lohrman, one of the founding brokers of Fuller Towne and Country, now Fuller Sotheby’s International in Englewood, Colorado. Lohrman has been selling real estate in the Denver metro, Foothills, and Douglas County area for over thirty-two years. Professional sports and premier cultural offerings are among the list of Denver’s many amenities and part of what gives it the feel of a large city, but on a more condensed scale. Its manageable size makes it easy to escape town and head for the many world renowned ski resorts within about an hour’s drive of downtown Denver. “We don’t think in terms of miles here, we think in terms of the minutes it takes to get places,” says Lohrman. Competitive prices combined with good movement in the high end real estate market make now a great time to buy in Colorado.

GEORG G RGIA—LAKE BURTON

N

estled among the inspiring mountain scapes of the great state of Georgia and mirrored in the blue-green waters of Lake Burton, timeless vistas capture the Blue Ridge Mountains. Flowing from these silhouettes are clear, crisp streams that feed the lake and accent the beautiful homes tucked into Lake Burton’s shoreline. Lake Burton got its name form the actual town of Burton that was set at the confluence of the Tallulah River, Dick’s Creek and Timpson Creek. Now submerged under the waters of the lake when the river was dammed in 1918, the town remains an inspiration for story telling. Our Georgia Power lake spans 2,775 acres with 62 miles of shoreline. Waterfalls, hiking trails, trout streams and mountain views are incentives for those looking for that special place to decompress. As the population of Atlanta has grown, so has the popularity of Lake Burton. Always a close knit community from its origin, the Southern Hospitality of Lake Burton offers the appeal of the incredible mountain scenery and crystal clear water. Water skiing, pontoon rides, jet skiing, tubing and fishing are all to be enjoyed. The word’s out, the homes are larger and the properties more exclusive due the limited supply of this small hidden jewel. Lake Burton real estate continues to remain strong through the economic slow down. Lake Burton is on track to be a major destination for top architecturally designed mountain lake homes. Come see!

Construction took place between 1827 and 1832. It ranks among some of the most impressive of North Carolina’s early-nineteenth-century homes. The home is documented in The ARCHITECTURE of WARREN COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA-1770s to 1860s by Kenneth McFarland. In addition, it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is protected by protective covenants of the Historic Preservation Foundation of North Carolina, Inc.

Dependencies include a caretaker’s house, horse stables, car garage, equipment

storage and others. The plantation house has been totally updated for today’s living with attention given to the maintenance of this significant historic home. Located in rural Warren County, it is situated just outside the historic town of Warrenton in the northern piedmont section of North Carolina. Within a 1.5 to 2 hour drive to Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill, NC and Richmond, VA, it is accessible to major airports. Come to see this unique property!

Envision a land encompassing 55 acres offering both sunrises and sunsets. Next, imagine a shoreline stretching 3,000 feet along some of the most pristine waterfront with soft, sandy beaches. Then, picture a compound of three separate waterfront residences that watch ships come and go from its two deep water docks. Dream of the deeply dredged, private lagoon with additional docks for safe harbor during storms. Conjure up an expansive pond, beautiful orchards, indigenous wild life and miles of walking trails to enjoy. No, not the promo for some exotic vacation destination (or maybe it is). And not the location for the next Pirate movie (but it could be). Nor is it the secluded haunt of a mysterious mega mogul (at least not currently). What is it exactly? Simply put, it is the most beautiful waterfront property now available for sale in the Hamptons today. Located on the northern tip of a peninsula that looks at the pristine shorelines of Shelter Island, Sag Harbor and East Hampton’s Northwest Harbor, Tyndal Point awaits.

NORTH CAROLINA—ELK —EL RIVER RIVE

T

he good life, a dream that everyone shares, can be found in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, far from the turmoil of a busy, hectic existence. It centers around the elegant Elk River Club, a rare jewel that has become synonymous with a casual but dignified lifestyle. Elk River was created in 1984 by Harry and Spencer Robbins, two imaginative native sons with an impeccable reputation for excellence and quality. With the passing years, the plush site of dogwood trees, rhododendron, azaleas and mountain laurel has developed into one of the nation’s most prestigious second home recreational communities. Spread over 1,200 acres of gorgeous mountain terrain, Elk River offers golf on one of the nation’s finest courses, a scenic and challenging championship layout that was designed by the famed Jack Nicklaus. In addition there is tennis, a unique equestrian center, swimming, hiking, fishing and wellness center. An impressive 50,000 square foot clubhouse complex serves as the club’s centerpiece for dining and social activities. The picturesque community is a showplace of stately homes and condominiums situated on slopes that overlook a peaceful river and a lush, green valley. The gated community, near the quaint town of Banner Elk, is served by its own jetport capable of accommodating both private and corporate aircraft. A number of Club members have their own planes and use the jetport frequently in commuting to the mountain getaway. “Life at Elk River is just what the members want it to be,” offered Founder, Spencer Robbins. “There is a wide variety of attractive amenities for everyone to use and enjoy. But if it’s peace, quiet and relaxation that they are seeking, it is here in a restful, luxurious environment.” Because of a limited membership, there is seldom a need for a golf course starting time. “Our members appreciate the fact that with golf memberships limited to 265, tee times are rarely needed,” Robbins said.

ELK RIVER CLUB 539 Banner Elk Hwy. Banner Elk, NC 28604 828.898.9777 info@elkriverclub.com www.ElkRiverClub.com 144 NORTH CAROLINA—BANNER ELK

Elk River’s success and reputation have been achieved by providing the highest quality of facilities for discerning members. “The setting, the amenities and an aura of excellence have been our trademark,” Robbins explained. “Life here is what most people dream about.”

SOUTH CAROLINA – HILTON HIL ON HEAD H D ISLAND IS N

F

By Cathleen McCann

rom the low country with its marshes and canopies of live oaks to the Appalachian foothills, South Carolina’s diverse landscape possesses a breathtaking natural beauty. Many freshwater lakes can also be found throughout the state. Fortunately for us, South Carolina is not densely developed which preserves its pristine beauty. Perhaps South Carolina’s most famous asset is its coast with its long stretch of beaches. Here set on one of the low country’s barrier islands is Hilton Head Island. Only twelve-miles long and seven-miles wide, Hilton Head Island has twelve-miles of white sand beaches running along the Atlantic Ocean side of the island. The west side of the island runs along the Intracoastal Waterway. “There is a diversity of places to live here,” says Steve Timperman, Broker/Partner with Charter One Realty in Hilton Head. “You can find everything from vacation homes and short term rentals to villas, private homes, and private estates.” Many private harbors offer not only a place to live, but one in which you can dock your boat in your own backyard. Approximately twelve gated communities provide privacy and a host of luxurious amenities. Premier golf and tennis clubs are some of the best in the U.S.

hough monarchial government never moved over from Europe, the tradition of living like a king has been established within America. In this land, the right resources allow anyone to revel in the pleasures of a castle sans the pressures of diplomatic leadership. Chateau Noble is one such resource that accommodates regal living. Nestled atop a hill and beset by two beautifully landscaped acres, Chateau Noble personifies its name as a 27,000square-foot manor brimming with spatial rooms and detailed with Beaux-Arts elements.

The splendor of these precisely crafted artistic facets begins at an entrance flanked with wrought-iron gates revealing the circular stone drive. Inside, a sweeping staircase surmounts the whimsical rotunda toward a coffered dome encasing a Schonbek chandelier. The stair railing is outlined in the rich black scroll work and the rotunda swells to expose a geo-metric pattern embellished in white and gold. The centrally located 166 FEATURED PROPERTY—SOUTHEAST

Superb coffered ceilings reappear in the library, which contains custom bookshelves and pocket doors in mahogany paneling. A gourmet kitchen heats the house with top-of-the-line appliances positioned between Angola gold granite countertops sparkling under recessed lighting. An adjoining butler’s pantry helps feed twenty-four guests hosted in the stylish formal dining room, and two salons with inlaid oak flooring suggests supplementary entertainment. The crown jewel of the living quarters is the magnanimous master suite that supplies a separate sitting room with fireplace and closets equipped with cherry wood built-ins. Luxurious accommodations continue in five additional bedrooms, each bedecked with their own marble and tile bathroom. On the main level there are three powder rooms, and tucked into the lower level are a workout room and oversized steam shower. The workout room overlooks a private garden www.duPontREGISTRY.com
