PUBLISHER’S LETTER Dear Readers, I think I can safely say that we are all looking forward to beginning a new year in hopes of continued growth in this marketplace. You’ll see some great properties featured in this month’s issue which no doubt will tempt and inspire you to consider owning a new property and possibly even move you into action. Our Marketplace feature this month is California. In Coveting Pebble Beach you’ll read about a picture-perfect home overlooking the Monterey Peninsula Country Club Shore Course. This property is listed through Carmel Realty Company and is well worth checking out, especially if you entertain. The realtor says it accommodates sixty to eighty people comfortably, and even has played host to cocktail parties during the annual AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Another California beauty is the San Francisco penthouse featured on page 36. With a seven-minute walk to North Beach and a view of the San Francisco Bay from Telegraph Hill, this is a premium location. The master bedroom suite covers the entire upper level with unobstructed views of the Bay. You won’t want to miss reading this feature. The Editor’s Choice this month is a peaceful place on 32 acres in Evergreen, Colorado. You’ll enjoy seeing the 2-page spread photos of this property. With a 6,000-square-foot recreation facility, horse stables and guest house as well as a 12,000-plus-square-foot Asian-design main home, this property was built to emphasize the family. Please be sure to read An Oasis of Natural Serenity. One last feature I want to mention is the Long Lake compound in the Adirondacks. This historic property in Lake George, New York is listed by Select Sotheby’s International Realty. If you are in the market for a charming and secluded estate, be sure to review all of the information provided. This place has water frontage, wooded property, gardens, and even a team-building area. I hope you enjoy these features as well as the rest of the magazine this month. We’re glad to start out the New Year with such beautiful real estate offerings for our clients and our readers.

COVETING PEBBLE BEACH Pebble Beach, California


A BUYERS GALLERY of FINE HOMES®

FEATURED PROPERTY

“Stroll the beach and oceanfront walking paths“ By Eli S. Pager There’s a rare opportunity to own one of the finest country club homes in Pebble Beach, and it’s situated in the heart of one of the most scenic and jaw-dropping venues in California. The surroundings, with the crashing surf, majestic sunsets, and the famed 17-Mile Drive that winds through Del Monte forest, is simply picture-perfect. It gets better. Within one of the most coveted Pebble Beach neighborhoods, the 4,634-square-foot house, rebuilt in 2005, overlooks the Monterey Peninsula Country Club Shore Course. The arrival through a gated courtyard, with a fountain at its center, offers the first wow, according to Peter Butler, the property’s listing agent and the owner of Carmel Realty Company in Carmel, California. “It’s grand, but it’s a perfect fit with the casualness and elegance of what people here like.” And the back of the property offers the ultimate wow, according to Butler, because of its panoramic Pacific Ocean views that stretch from the Santa Cruz Mountains to Cypress Point. Large picture windows across the entire two floors of the back capture those views, as well as the manicured golf course in the foreground. The beach and the area’s oceanfront walking paths are only a short stroll from the house. Butler says the interior is particularly well suited for entertaining. On the first floor, for instance, there’s wet bar in the living room, and that space is adjacent to a formal dining room. In addition, a temperaturecontrolled wine closet is set off of the kitchen. Earlier this year, for

FEATURED PROPERTY example, the owners hosted a cocktail party during the annual AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am that is played on the Monterey Peninsula Country Club Shore Course that essentially is located in the home’s backyard. “The house can accommodate sixty to eighty people comfortably, but it also works for small parties and casual dining. And the house is equally well-suited for a couple to live comfortably,” comments Butler. A curved staircase leads upstairs, where there are two bedroom suites and a grand master suite. All three stretch across the back of the home and look out over the golf course to the ocean. The spaces also offer white water ocean and sunset views. The grand master suite includes a fireplace, his-and-her walk-in closets, as well as a bathroom with a marble-slab steam shower and spacious tub with ocean views. Among the home’s more subtle design features are solid wood doors, radiant heating, a remotecontrolled cabinet housing a flat-screen television, a whole-house sound and lighting system, as well as high-quality materials and appliances throughout. Butler notes that the $6,495,000 asking price is below replacement cost and well below the current owner’s investment in the property. Moreover, he says the property delivers everything, including location, views, and access to the Monterrey Peninsula’s natural beauty, that people seek when they come to Pebble Beach.

MARKET INSIGHT

LONG LAKE, NEW YORK IN THE ADIRONDACKS HISTORIC PROPERTY NODS TO THE PAST, EMBRACES THE FUTURE By Elyse Umlauf Nearly every luxury property exudes a special feeling that's often difficult to communicate in words. Not so for an Adirondack camp, Kwenogamac, which is set on Long Lake located within the heart of the Adirondack Park. Harold Reiser's description goes like this: "It's like driving into a storybook." How about that for enticing? That storybook feel comes from the property's remoteness, for one. The 13-building compound, built in 1903 for Arpad G. C. Gerster, a European immigrant and doctor, is set on 42 acres. The site, accessible by a private, gated road, is surrounded by woods, mountains and water, all of which combine to deliver a rare, calming silence. The property is listed with John Burke, of Select Sotheby's International Realty. It has three New York offices in Saratoga Springs, Lake Placid, and Lake George in New York. Reiser is associate broker and founding member of the firm. It's a property that offers a nod to the past, but where history and modernity co-exist. In fact, unique spaces from the original design remain. Those include a room whose surfaces are entirely covered in tin. The tin kept linens safe from mice. Another space was used to refill oil lamps. Among the camp's main buildings are the original historic lodge, meant for summer use, that includes a library and seven bedrooms that are spread across three floors. Gerster, something of a Renaissance man, kept diaries, books and papers, some of which are still in place at the property. A new guest lodge for year-round use features a great room with a full kitchen and a master suite with soaring gabled ceilings accompanied by magnificent peeled log truss work.

And a year-round boathouse includes a second-floor great room, a sundeck and Crestron and Lutron systems. It's marked by log beams and a dramatic vaulted ceiling. Its interior fireplace is so grand that you can walk around it. A second fireplace is located outside on a covered porch. The building was designed to fit with the environment and incorporates wood from the property, along with red and yellow birch and reclaimed heart pine floors. "The combination of woods and the architecture is a piece of art," comments Reiser. Moreover, the compound is self sufficient and relies on green power. Solar panels and battery storage produce electricity, for instance, and a wood boiler is capable of generating heat and hot water for two major buildings. Gardens, one of which is totally white, are abundant across the property. And rather than using harsh measures to keep deer at bay, a motion sensor sets off squirts of water that discourage them from chomping plants. And an array of outdoor amenities make the property an ideal getaway for recreation. There's the 1,233 feet of water frontage with a sandy beach, as well as two playing fields, trails for hiking, skiing and snow-shoeing, and water sports that include boating, swimming and fishing. Reiser and Burke see the property as ideal for a high-profile person craving privacy or for a family compound. It's also a strong contender for a corporate entity seeking space for training and meetings, especially since there's a built-in environment for teambuilding exercises. www.duPontREGISTRY.com

California wins again--for the seventh year in a row--as the state where most people would like to live. That’s according to an October 2010 Harris Poll in which it asks respondents, “If you could live in any state in the country, except the state you live in now, what state would you choose to live in?” Echo Boomer and Gen Xers are especially enamored with the state and those demographic groups rank California as their number one spot, found the Harris Poll. Baby boomers (aged 46 to 64) also love California, ranking it number three, with Hawaii and Florida being their first picks. Such news likely is no surprise to California real estate practitioners, who see people regularly enticed by the state’s gentle climate and sun-drenched beaches.

SLEEK TIBURON CONTEMPORARY SPARKLES The architect for a Tiburon, California, house wisely saw a site that demanded something special. As a result, the design exploits the astounding views that, according to Karen Hardesty, capture the essence and joy of Tiburon living. On one side, the graceful curves of the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge, the hills of the East Bay, and water traffic of commercial and pleasure vessels are visible. The other views reveal hills, trees, coves, and beaches.

CALIFORNIA MARKETPLACE And though the 5,924-square-foot property features high-end details, such as stone, granite and art glass, there’s nothing in the house that shrieks for attention. “It’s elegant, understated, and it’s not a house where you walk in and say, ‘Look at those moldings,’” comments Hardesty, who with Chelsea Hardesty, both of Frank Howard Allen REALTORS® in Tiburon, is colisting the property. “There’s nothing that detracts from the house’s setting. Everything is designed to enhance it,” she adds. Sleek, contemporary, and fresh would all be appropriate adjectives to describe the six-bedroom house.

entertaining, and the two Hardestys got a firsthand look at how well the property works for guests when they threw a soiree, featuring jazz and champagne, to introduce the property when they listed it. There was an “ooh-aah” sense among guests as they entered through a stone walkway and immediately caught the captivating views.

The property is marked by clean lines and curved design elements that echo throughout the space. Rooms, including dual family rooms, are oriented to walls of glass, and the property’s outdoor decks extend the home’s livable space.

The neighborhood, itself, is characterized by large wooded lots, open space, parks and the beach. And though it’s only a 15-minute jaunt from the Golden Gate Bridge, Karen Hardesty says the house makes you feel like you’re worlds away, thanks to a bucolic setting that is populated by oak trees, flowers and meandering paths.

Karen Hardesty points to the master suite as especially attractive and calls it a retreat. For one, it’s secluded from the main areas of the house and it has a sitting room, a dressing room, and access to an outdoor deck with a private hot tub. And the bedroom, itself, features two walls of glass. The more public areas of the house are ideally suited to

Additional outdoor features include dramatic night lighting, a sports court and parking for eight cars. In addition, six houses in the neighborhood, including this one, share use of a dock.

TURN-OF-CENTURY MONTECITO ESTATE A turn-of-the-century, grand estate in Montecito represents a notable departure in architectural style from the tile-roofed, Mediterranean-style homes more typical in this region of Southern California.

Designed in 1895 by the legendary East Coast architect Stanford White, the 10,000-square-foot, two-story home with wraparound, columned verandas, evokes a feeling of another era. The cedar shingled nine-bedroom home is surrounded by 3.7 acres of lawns, lush flower filled gardens, mature trees and wide lawns. Susan Burns of Coldwell Banker Previews International in Montecito says that entering the estate through its formal gates is like stepping into a bygone world of refined elegance. The home features spacious, sunny rooms, high ceilings and architectural details, like intricate moldings, wonderful woodwork, and the classic fine oak floors of the time. A total restoration of the estate, done in 1994 by the current owners, included remodeling the interiors, while maintaining the original configuration of the rooms, and replacing all the electrical, plumbing and heating systems. In 2002 a second renovation enlarged the family room around an inviting river rock fireplace and created a larger master bath with mahogany and ebony floors. Other nods to modernism include a gym and up-to-date kitchen, along with outdoor amenities, such as a tennis court, a pool with spa and a poolside cabana. The estate offers both mountain and ocean views and with gardens that, says Burns, are both spectacular and colorful. A long, curving driveway is lined with willow trees, roses surround 30

the home in the summer, and a climbing rose vine stretches from the front doorway up the house to the second floor. “The large gracious rooms have a pleasing symmetry and they’re painted in soft tones that look beautiful in all seasons and adapt well from day to night,” observes Burns. The warm colors, along with the textures of fabrics, create a serene retreat. The property features terraces and 19th Century verandas and French doors in every room that allow the house to be open to the balmy Santa Barbara climate. The circa 1917 “Recreation House” features a wood-paneled, curved living room ceiling and an original stone fireplace. It serves as a large two-bedroom guest house and has a private location on the property, as well as its own gated entrance. The home could be rebuilt or expanded if someone desired a larger family compound. The current owners, says Burns, always had an eye on creating a living space that balanced comfort with elegance and architectural integrity. “It’s rich with history, yet allows for the casual indoor and outdoor lifestyle sought after in Santa Barbara. This Montecito estate stands alone with its magnificent architecture and landscape design,” she says. www.duPontREGISTRY.com

HEARTFELT TOAST TO THE GOOD LIFE A Laguna Beach property has history, size, and walkability on its side. Those are just some of the ways the approximately 5,800 -square-foot house stands out in its market. It once served as the summer stomping grounds for members of the Hershey family, famous for the iconic chocolate bar. Originally built in the late 1920s , the three-story property features an array of design elements and craftsmanship that mirror the original features and finishes, but that have been updated to modern standards, according to Lee Ann Canaday of the Canaday Group in Laguna Beach, California. Upgrades took place both in 2001 and 2008. Among the additions were a media room and a custom gourmet kitchen that features limestone counters with hand-carved edges and gourmet appliances, such as two Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezers and a Dynasty oven. The kitchen is adorned with hand-painted murals, as well. For the area, the generous square footage is rare and so is the parking for four cars, notes Canaday. She also says the location is a tremendous asset because it’s across the street from beach access and within walking distance of downtown, giving prospective residents the option of ditching the car and walking to Laguna Beach’s restaurants, galleries, and festivals.

www.duPontREGISTRY.com

And the city, particularly its festivals, provides experience-rich opportunities. Canaday calls out one unique event, the annual Pageant of the Masters, that is a huge draw. Painting masterpieces are recreated not in paint, but by real people posed so that they look exactly like the people in the artwork. The theme of a recent fest was “Eat, Drink and Be Merry,” and, according to organizers, it was focused on “artworks that reflect our collective capacity for seizing the moment, letting our hair down and raising a heartfelt toast to the good life.” That good life, Canaday might argue, is found right in this property, where focal points are 180- degree ocean view and a beach lifestyle. Outside, there’s a bath and shower designed for beach days, and an exterior staircase leads to an outdoor fireplace that is surrounded by sitting areas. The beach is just steps from the house. Ocean views are captivating from the living and dining room and from balconies across the property. In addition, the master suite offers the 180-degree ocean views, and sights of the coastline, white water, and Catalina Island. Moreover, the house is in move-in condition. “It’s impeccable,” says Canaday. “You can bring your toothbrush and clothes and just start enjoying yourself.”  above: Ocean views are captivating from the master bedroom suite’s private balacony CALIFORNIA MARKETPLACE

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA SAN FRANCISCO PENTHOUSE MESMERIZES By Elyse Umlauf-Garneau It's a beguiling city that immediately captures your heart. After just one visit, nearly everyone toys with the idea of one day calling San Francisco their home. And the ideal home that factors into that fantasy likely resembles a luxury retreat that Heidi Rossi, of Paragon Real Estate Group in San Francisco, is marketing. Simply put, it has everything. For one, it's set in one of the most desirable neighborhoods, Telegraph Hill, home of the city's iconic Coit Tower. It's a mere seven-minute walk to North Beach. The property, itself, is as stunning as its neighborhood. Though it's a condominium, the three-bedroom Lombard Street penthouse lives like a single-family home. It's spacious, open, and filled with light. And views through the butted glass (glass with no mullions that offers unobstructed views) are transfixing and include San Francisco Bay and Coit Tower. Extensive remodeling introduced an array of luxury appointments and brought about a perfect marriage between the indoors and outdoors, according to Rossi. The arrival, through a Spanish courtyard-style entry, sets the tone for the rest of the property that is executed in a style that Rossi calls Spanish eclectic. That deck is a spot to relax, take in views, and watch the famed wild parrots of

HEIDI ROSSI

Telegraph Hill that flit about in trees just off the deck. The property's main level features a guest bedroom suite and another well-appointed bedroom and a full guest bathroom. A gourmet kitchen also captures the views and is fitted with professional appliances, including a Chateau Series La Cornue Range. Features, such as Pyrolave Enameled Lavastone countertops and a custom, hand-hammered copper countertop island with a trough sink add originality to the space. The main living room features a stone fireplace with trompe l’oeil detailing, an exposed beam ceiling, and Spanish tile floors. And a sliding door in the dining room opens up to allow entertaining to extend to the outdoors. And from its second-floor perch, the master bedroom suite takes in unobstructed Bay views. The bedroom covers that entire second level and has a remote-controlled fireplace, dual bathrooms with steam showers, a large whirlpool soaking tub and a dry sauna, and walk-in wardrobes.

CARMEL, CALIFORNIA SANTA LUCIA PRESERVE By Britta Dragicevic It’s not every day that you can buy luxury and sustainability, a nurturing home and a perpetually nourished environment, a place among some of the most gorgeous land in the world and a place in history. At the Santa Lucia Preserve in Carmel, California, you can. With 20,000 acres of untouched Californian coastal landscape tucked just three miles from Carmel, the Santa Lucia Preserve is one of the rarest opportunities in the world today for those dedicated to preserving our most important treasure: land. Breathtaking mountain and ocean vistas, quiet valleys dotted with legacy oaks, rugged terrain and smooth pastures, ancient Redwood stands and magical forests—this sprawling 19th century cattle ranch somehow slipped through the cracks of time and urban sprawl, having been preserved by three owners since the 1850s, and most recently sold to the fourth owner in 1990. Today, this land stands testimony to California’s original and enduring beauty, its mesmerizing array of ecological systems and its ability to resist the human footprint.

The residents at Santa Lucia Preserve relish life and enjoy luxury amenities including a private golf club limited to 300 members, an owner’s social club with weekly cocktail parties, guest suites and world-class chefs, equestrian opportunities, 100 miles of groomed trails and guaranteed privacy. The experience and lifestyle at the Preserve is enhanced by an array of unique and memorable personal and community events. The hills of Santa Lucia drop off into Big Sur and the community is close to Highway 1, Carmel-by-the-Sea and Monterey. “We attract buyers from Silicon Valley, Los Angeles, Texas, the East Coast—people come from all over, but they all share a commitment to living luxury a bit differently, perhaps more meaningfully, with a real love for nature and this incredible legacy we have been privileged to be stewards of,” says McAulay. Land parcels and existing homes are currently available for sale.

To ensure that the legacy of this land will continue, 18,000 acres have been placed under a perpetual conservation easement, overseen by the non-profit Santa Lucia Conservancy, endowed with $25 million to provide its long-term sustainability. The remaining 2,000 acres have been carefully and meticulously developed into a Preservation community with 300 home sites. Well-designed architectural covenants ensure that homes recede into the landscape and Preserve residents enjoy a close, tight-knit community of fellow landowners passionate about land preservation, respecting nature and enjoying a quiet, serene relationship with the natural world. “We are committed to living gently and lightly on the land,” says Kris McAulay, managing broker with The Preserve Land Company, Santa Lucia’s onsite real estate representative. “It’s a private community that enjoys knowing that by owning property here, they are creating a legacy for their families in an exclusive, permanent, safe and secure environment while ensuring that this land will be undisturbed forever.”

By Britta Dragicevic ORLANDO, FLORIDA Orlando’s luxury market is still sizzling, thanks to its unbeatable climate, rich amenities and array of properties designed to meet every lifestyle. Lush properties can be found at great value and opportunities abound for those looking to relax in the sun and enjoy the good life. “Orlando has its share of foreclosures even in the luxury market, but they don’t stay on the market very long,” says Carol Ann Hewitt, broker/owner of Oxford Realty in Orlando. “Those who have cash have the best opportunities as financing luxury properties can be challenging during these times.”

One of the amenity-rich properties Hewitt represents is the “Casa de Enamorados” a gorgeous 9,250-square-foot estate nestled in an exclusive gated community on the beautiful Butler Chain of Lakes. A sandy beach, spectacular lake views, a pool and heated spa, a private putting green, boat house and waterside deck create a perfect place to enjoy Florida’s sun-kissed days. The custom built home reflects the mission-style architecture of Santa Barbara and features Spanish elements, hand-carved doors, stone floors, beamed ceilings and hand-painted tiles. An open floor plan allows for easy entertaining and fun family gatherings. Oversized window-walls provide spectacular waterfront views throughout the home. “Once you enter the guard-gated entrance, you’re welcomed into this charming lakefront setting where you can leave the rest of the world behind,” Hewitt says. “This property is all about living the good life.” No luxury has been spared. The home features five bedroom suites, a gourmet kitchen, theater, lakefront billiards room, gentleman’s office with private entry, formal living and dining rooms, massive stone fireplace, screen-enclosed lakefront outdoor living/dining area with stone carved fireplace, summer kitchen, bar and grilling area, wood flooring and many custom details. The Butler Chain of Lakes offers eleven navigable lakes 50

perfect for boating, fishing and enjoying water activities. The estate is only fifteen minutes to Disney attractions, shopping, medical facilities and many fine restaurants.

NATCHEZ, MISSISSIPPI Two years older than New Orleans, the city of Natchez, Mississippi is the oldest city on the Mississippi River. For more than 300 years, its charm has drawn visitors and residents to its beautiful location on the highest river bluff north of the Gulf of Mexico. Today, luxury buyers find remarkable values for homes with legacies dating back into the 1700s— homes whose grace and immaculate detailing provide a gentle escape into a rich history of a genteel lifestyle. www.duPontREGISTRY.com

THE SOUTHEAST “The residents of Natchez take pride in the city and its historic homes. While you can find a wide variety of architectural styles and periods, the antebellum mansions are what we are most well-known for,” says Charlotte Copeland, a real estate associate with Century 21 River Cities Realty in Natchez. An elegant property Copeland represents is The Towers, a fully and meticulously restored 1798 mansion in the Upper River Historic Residential District. Located on a generous five acres of gated southern gardens and old growth oaks, the home is situated in the heart of the city. Its Italianate façade and sweeping terrace are embellished with beautiful flora and manicured lawns. The mansion features 7,500 square feet of climate-controlled

living space—authentically decorated to highlight the home’s history. Four bedrooms, four baths and two-half baths, three kitchen areas with modern amenities discreetly incorporated, a parlor, music room, garden room, formal rooms and threeroom office or caretaker suite create a spacious place to call home. The covered porches on the rear of the residence are ideal for relaxing with family and friends. “Our high quality of life in a small city where you can walk the streets, feel safe, and enjoy the shops, dining and beautiful historic ambiance make Natchez one of the best places to retire, vacation or raise your family,” says Copeland.

THE SOUTHEAST custom windows and doors, and artfully designed views of pool and lush landscaping. A resort-styled pool and Jacuzzi, as well as covered terraces with granite bars invite family and guests to relax in the comfort of the property’s privacy. A four-bay garage and detached guest suite with Turkish bath and private terrace overlooking gardens complement the home. “This is a gorgeous home with a wonderful flow and sense of space,” Cisneros says. “It’s in the quiet suburban village of Pinecrest where there are gardens, parks and close proximity to some of the best public and private schools in Miami-Dade County. This is a luxury home designed for today’s family life.”

FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA Representative of the best values available today in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, this premier new construction deep-water luxury estate offers distinguishing amenities within the coveted community of Las Olas Isles. “Florida is really the state of opportunity right now,” says Julie Jones, broker/associate with Premier Estate Properties, a leading Fort Lauderdale real estate firm exclusively representing ultra-luxury properties. In 2009, Julie was named Top Luxury Broker in Fort Lauderdale with more than $37 million in closed sales.

MIAMI, FLORIDA The Miami luxury market continues to draw international buyers attracted by the sun-drenched multicultural Florida lifestyle and the opportunities to purchase incredible properties at exceptional values. “This is a great time to buy if you have cash,” says Marisela Cisneros, real estate associate with One Sotheby’s Realty in Coral Gables. “People with listings are starting to realize that when they lower their asking prices to reflect today’s market, their property goes under contract. The only homes that still command their ‘boom’ values are those that are unusual, one-of-a-kind architectural dwellings where there is nothing else like it on the market.” One exceptional property built with the luxury woman’s distinguished taste in mind, is a grand manor in the village of Pinecrest, just south of Coral Gables. “This was custom built by a woman from Germany who is an architect. You can tell that she carefully planned out the flow of space and usage for the convenient needs of everyday family life and with the insight into a guests comfort.” The home’s 12,000 plus square feet of living space are hallmarked by exquisite details including imported Colombian wood, marble floors, coffered ceilings, gourmet kitchen, custom cabinetry, plush master suite, Bisazza mosaic tiling, La Finestra

“This property is a classic example of the kind of value you can find in Fort Lauderdale. At the height of the market in 2005, this property would have been listed at around $6 million, now you can have all of the same amenities, plus the rarity of new construction for $3,995,000. This is an outstanding opportunity.” Just completed in 2010, this Mediterranean-inspired estate features gorgeous water views, full Smart House capabilities and Old World ambiance embraced by the presence of an Old Chicago brick motor court and a hand-made Artezanos Colombian clay tile roof. Over 6,000 square feet of living space secured by a sophisticated security system, brushed and chiseled marble floors on the main level, hand-distressed walnut flooring on the upper level, six bedrooms, five full and three half baths, elevator, spacious gourmet kitchen, elaborate columns, plush master suite, theater room and private VIP guest suite complement the home’s noted design. A 100-foot seawall shoreline, new extended dock, sweeping Jerusalem stone patio, four garage bays and a 40-foot-long outdoor pool with waterfalls create a luxurious and refined outdoor space for entertaining or enjoying tranquility. Protected deepwater dockage allows easy access to the New River, Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean. “This is an amazing value and great example of the kind of deals you can find here,” Jones says. “And in today’s economy, getting a good deal is everything.”

THE SOUTHEAST By Eric Snider NAPLES, FLORIDA Unlike Miami—the glitz capitol of the Southeast situated 108 miles down U.S. 41—Naples, Florida is quiet, dignified and exclusive. It’s also one of the most prestigious addresses in the U.S. “It’s a very private social scene, with parties and cultural events, galleries, the best shopping,” says Don Winkler who, with partner Robyn Griffin, sells ultra-high-end homes and condos almost exclusively within Naples’ relative small city limits. “We have CEOs of major companies who have second and third homes here, and they know they can live here quietly and confidentially.” Winkler and Griffin, who work under the John R. Wood, REALTORS umbrella, allow that Naples, like pretty much every other community in America, went through a real estate slump, even in the realm of multi-million-dollar homes. “In most instances, properties sat on the market with very few showings,” Don says. “Most of us who had been in the market for awhile kind of sat on the sidelines. We didn’t encourage someone to buy or sell who didn’t have an immediate need.”

The situation has decidedly changed for the better. “We have certainly seen a recovery,” Robyn says. “There are great values now. We’ve been very busy.” In sales of homes over $2 million, the Naples market has seen a 20 percent increase from the first half of 2009 to the same period in 2010. “We’re seeing a lot of customers once again feeling comfortable going ahead with the transaction,” Don says. Robyn adds that investors are once again purchasing high-end estates, “taking advantage of the market.” A typical home in the partners’ portfolio is a gorgeous manse in the luxurious subdivision of Aqualane Shores. Overlooking serene Naples Bay, the home, at 6,855 square feet under AC, features six suites, a 150-foot on-water dock with a lift, lush landscaping and other extraordinary amenities. Price: $5.9 million. “Besides the actual home, which is breathtaking, it’s three blocks from the beach, within walking distance of the finest restaurants in Old Naples, as well as shopping and art galleries,” Don says. “The location allows you to easily access everything Naples has to offer.”

Holly Hedges Located in the Historic Spanish District of Downtown Natchez, this early 1796 home is noted for its formal gardens and a deed that requires “no bull fighting on these premises.” The home has a grand foyer with double parlors, a gentlemen’s parlor and most notable is the grand ball room with original Zuber wall coverings. The ornate doorways, medallions and crown moldings are breathtakingly beautiful. The property has a separate 3-car garage and guest house. One enjoys the carriages that go by and the 2-block strolls to the Mississippi River. Restored to perfection, this home is so desirable for those that appreciate the antebellum era.

The Towers of Natchez, Mississippi Located in the Upper River Historic Residential District; this antebellum mansion sits on approximately 5-acres of gated southern gardens in the heart of the City. The beautiful southern flora enhances the Italianate façade. The earliest date for the home is 1798 and is incorporated into the stately mansion we have today. The Towers has 7500 square feet of heated and cooled area. It consists of 4 bedrooms, 4 baths and 2 half baths, 3 kitchen areas, parlor, music room, garden room, formal rooms and a 3-room suite for an office or caretakers residence. The rear of the home has covered porches. The basement area of the home has large storage area, a gardener’s room, laundry room, half bath and an office. These basement rooms are centrally heated and cooled. This home is rich in history and is a favorite of the many tourist that visit Natchez.

Tom Wagner Presents...

Palm Island

A World of Seclusion and Natural Delight Awaits You.

Just imagine: a deserted beach stretches for miles before you, wisps of grass tufted along the abandoned shore shimmer in the light breeze. There are no crowds, no strangers, no disturbances. Flocks of seabirds pepper the wet sand, protected sea turtles meander at will, the waves crash on the shore encrusted with shell remnants from the sea of a millennia ago. Time here slows to a rhythm all your own. Hailed as one of the only places in Florida that still offers the quiet, secluded escape that first attracted vacationers to the sun-drenched state, Palm Island (located just south of Sarasota in southwest Florida between Sarasota and Fort Meyers) is a jewel of Florida island life waiting to be your next best kept secret. The island is actually comprised of three interconnected islands—Don Pedro, Knight Island and Palm Island—stretching seven miles long and 700 yards wide max. Life here is peaceful and quiet. There are no towns or street lights. While vehicles are allowed, most people enjoy the ease and simplicity of getting around via golf cart. Islanders enjoy the fact that life here is like the way Florida used to be and they’re careful to preserve it. While residents enjoy a quiet lifestyle, there are amenities available at the island’s only commercial establishment—Palm Island Resort—which occupies the northern section of Palm Island. Here you and your guests can find succulent seafood dining fresh from the Gulf, full catering services, entertainment and guest boat docking. One of the only places in Florida that still offers the quiet, secluded escape that first attracted vacationers to the sun-drenched state, Palm Island is a jewel of Florida island life. Residents of Palm Island enjoy a rare privacy thanks to 300 feet of Intracoastal Waterway that effectively makes this a naturally gated community. On Palm Island you have the luxury of letting grandchildren roam around on golf carts, go fishing, and just enjoy being kids. Ferries provide vehicle transport, but the fee charged non-residents is a natural deterrent to curious sightseers. Private boats can only find dockage at residences or as registered guests at the resort. Fire and Rescue is located on the island as well. And just four minutes away, the mainland offers all the conveniences of an urban living. Owning property at Palm Island is coveted and property values continue to hold and climb. It’s a great time to buy! There are undeveloped lots available for building your ideal island retreat and established private residences also on the market. While many people see Palm Island as a great place to retire, there also families with children and couTom Wagner, Realtor ples who enjoy the tropical climate, gorgeous RE/MAX Alliance Group environment and the way the island fosters closeknit family life. This is the place to be to enjoy a 2000 Webber Street • Sarasota, FL 34239 carefree island lifestyle while living harmoniously Cell: (941) 685-5890 with the natural environment.
