By Britta Dragicevic

Southwind Ranch

The soothing nature of water and the variety of activities it offers has long made lakefront living a mainstay in the luxury market. Refreshing lake vistas, the indulgence of private beaches, the freedom to head out on the water at your convenience, the gathering of friends and family— these are a few of the pleasures of lakefront living.

Karnes City, Texas This 238-acre showplace ranch is one of the great architectural masterpieces, an imposing four-story, 34-room Antebellum-style mansion. This world-famous ranch is only 45 minutes from an international airport, making this ranch perfect for a corporate retreat or family compound.



Virginia—A Resilient Industry By Elyse Umlauf-Garneau The meaning of the slogan, "Virginia is for Lovers" has always been a bit vague for those residing outside Virginia. Could it be a love of U.S. history? A love for the beach? Waterfront living? Commanding mountain views? Quaint towns?

Dear Reader,


With school winding down and families embarking on summer vacation adventures, we tend to shift our focus over the next few months. The hustle and bustle of day-to-day life oftentimes takes a backseat to the pursuit of life’s simple pleasures. Not everyone can indulge in this summertime bliss. However, all are aware of its presence in the air. Something about summer beckons to people to proceed at a more leisurely pace. Enjoying time with family and friends while relishing in this relaxing season, is what summer is all about. That is why in this issue of the duPont REGISTRY A Buyers Gallery of Fine Homes® we focus on discovering the hidden gems of real estate which offer the peace and comfort that go hand-in-hand with summertime satisfaction. In the Pleasures of Lakefront Living we uncover the secluded natural settings amidst the Appalachian forests and mountains at Lake Watauga, Tennessee, and Lake Burton, Georgia, as well as the quaint and festive atmosphere of Winnipesaukee Lake, New Hampshire. For our marketplace feature we highlight a destination full of serenity and beauty yet also rich in history, Virginia—A Resilient Industry. From Virginia Beach to Smith Mountain Lake we unearth the picturesque surroundings of such a prestigious state. If a significant and impressive heritage is of interest to you, then be sure to read our write-up about the Belle Terre, our featured property in Saucon Valley, Pennsylvania, an area dating back to 1741. Moving back to current times, in Golden Opportunity we recap the private preview event of one of Tanya Murray’s luxurious estates in Las Vegas, Nevada. With long summer days on the horizon, be sure to take some time to read through the features listed above—relax and enjoy.

BELLE TERRE Saucon Valley, Pennsylvania



By Britta Reque-Dragicevic Eastern Pennsylvania is richly steeped in American history with the city of Bethlehem established in 1741 around a strong Moravian influence. The landscape of rolling hills, winding rivers and genteel valleys stand witness to tradition, harmony, change and the fullness of the American dream. Few locales offer such a deep connection to the inner spirit of prosperity and determination that remains the hallmark of American success. In Saucon Valley, this history is evident in remarkable vintage estates designed to celebrate the wealth and good fortune of early American enterprise. Graciously appointed with every

amenity and situated in lush acreage, these estates offer today’s distinguished owner the opportunity to carry on the area’s legacy. Belle Terre is one of the most pedigreed of these estates, centered in a private cache of more than 24 acres of lawns, mature trees, and professionally landscaped grounds. Fully renovated with meticulous care and attention to historic detail, the manor house offers 13,000 square feet of living space featured in 19 rooms, 5 bedroom suites, 7 fireplaces and luxury accruements including historic cherry hardwood flooring, stonework, custom millwork and moldings, and barrel and coffered ceilings. The



home encompasses three levels with a new fully appointed theater room with leather seating, gourmet kitchen, two-story pub room with second floor library, game room and garden room with lap pool. “After I sold this property to the current owners in 2004, they spent four years carefully renovating the home with one of the area’s most renowned historic architects,” says Nancy Ahlum, the property’s listing broker with Carol C. Dorey Real Estate. “They spared no detail and even removed the main roof and repitched it to make it more accurate for the 1939 period in which the estate was built,” Ahlum says. New additions include a reproduction Bucks County settler’s home which serves as the pool house for the three outdoor pools that interconnect with waterfalls. The property has more than 8,000 square feet of patio space and a tennis court. Ten garages provide ample room for the car enthusiast and a reproduction PA barn has been designed with historical accuracy and offers an area for a batting or golfing cage. Adjacent is a fully equipped caretaker’s quarters. “The area’s estates were designed for the executives of Bethlehem Steel and they were the ultimate in prestige, comfort and serenity,” Ahlum says. “Today they are home to people who enjoy the finer details of life. Nearby is the renowned Saucon Valley Country Club, one of the nation’s top clubs offering 60 holes of golf on four courses. Just five minutes away, Bucks County has always been famous as a playground for weekenders and artists who were attracted to the natural beauty of the area.” Belle Terre is located in Saucon Valley in the broader Lehigh Valley and is within an easy 60 to 90 miles to Philadelphia and New York City. Boutique shops, antiques, spas, casinos, golf, music and arts festivals, higher education, and fine dining abound. An international airport within 15 minutes facilitates private jet arrival. “In its understated elegance, this property has a quiet dignity that is not overpowering or ostentatious. It’s been designed to feel very inviting and comfortable. Nothing feels as if it doesn’t have its place on this property,” Ahlum says. “This is a wonderful place to call home, in an area long appreciated for its rich history and gracious estates.” Offered at $9,800,000 For color brochure and comprehensive information packet contact: Nancy W.

LIVE THE LIFESTYLE LAKE WATAUGA, TENNESSEE An earthy scent of deep Appalachian forest mingles with the light early morning mist rising over Watauga Lake. Towering evergreens blanket the rolling hills in this corner of northeast Tennessee, creating a vista so refreshing in its tranquility and beauty that it rivals the best vacation spots in the world. “Few places offer a guarantee of privacy and seclusion like Watauga Lake,” says Sean Good, of Cherokee Forest Homes, LLC. “We are completely surrounded by national forest and only 25 percent of the lake can be privately owned.” Luxury homes are interspersed along the lake’s 110-plus miles of shoreline. Among those is a private estate that takes its resplendent place as one of the only available properties on the lake to encompass the tip of a peninsula—offering more than 600 feet of shoreline and panoramic views of the main channel, rolling hills and undisturbed nature. “This is a rare offering on this lake and the only one of its kind to become available,” says Good, the listing broker. Offering more than 5,000 square feet of living space and designed to impeccable detail, the home is located on a generous nine-plus acres, creating an oasis of gracious natural living for the perfect family retreat and escape.

A STATE OF BEAUTY By Cathleen McCann


One of the country’s fastest growing cities is Bentonville, Arkansas. With its small town feel, abundance of natural assets, and world class amenities it is easy to see why this city has won over the hearts of so many. Indeed, Bentonville’s reputation is worldwide, thanks to its location as the birthplace and headquarters of retailing giant, Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. Situated between the Boston and Ozark Mountains and the University of Arkansas in nearby Fayetteville, Bentonville’s prime spot in Northwest Arkansas allows for many day trips to popular tourist hot spots like Branson, Missouri. However, plenty of opportunities for recreational activities make any outdoor enthusiast want to stay close to home.

Bentonville is poised to become a major player on the national art scene with the addition of the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. This premier museum, currently under construction and scheduled to open in 2011, will showcase the best of American art and artists. One of Bentonville’s foremost residences boasts a prestigious pedigree. The Applegate House, designed by renowned architect and Frank Lloyd Wright student E. Fay Jones in the mid-1960s, was nominated to the National Register of Historic Places. Fay Jones was the architect of Northwest Arkansas’ Thorncrown Chapel, chosen fourth on the AIA’s top designs of the twentieth century. Situated on over sixteen picturesque acres in the heart of Bentonville, the home feels secluded, yet is just minutes from downtown and the WalMart Headquarters. “Its unique hilltop setting overlooks a three-acre spring-fed lake stocked with bass,” says Stacy Walton, owner/broker with Prudential Northwest Arkansas Real Estate in Bentonville. Perhaps the home’s most unique feature is its curvilinear design which surrounds the indoor swimming pool. “Brownish Ozark stone graces the home’s interior and exterior, making it blend seamlessly with the landscape,” adds Walton. Other interesting features include cascading rock “waterfalls” instead of showerheads in the homes three circular showers as well as two windows constructed from a 1957 Chevy.

above: The unique Applegate House on the hilltop in Bentonville, Arkansas.



A UNIQUE CREATION Bentonville, Arkansas


Designed by E Fay Jones, the Applegate House is a custom built, multi-level residence masterpiece built on a hillside site and constructed of indigenous Ozark stone, a dominant structural and aesthetic element in the home’s design. The home is 9500 square feet with a flat design roof and walls that are entirely curvilinear in form. Configuration of the land had much to do with the concept of the home. Located on a hill, the rear facade of the home with multiple windows, overlooks a three-acre lake on property consisting of 16 acres total. Experience spectacular views of the lake with balconies, flagstone patio areas and winding paths. The original owners conceptualized this home with an open flow for an entertaining lifestyle. The well orchestrated flow of space offers continuous interior space. There are three bedrooms, 3 baths with stone showers, 4 total featuring rock “waterfalls” instead of shower heads. The central focus of the interior is the large beautiful nine and a half foot deep pool surrounded by a two story high atrium. A home that is “different” in many ways, and definitely a unique creation.

Dallas’ Most Unique Estate


Elizabeth Anderson 478 457-7010 TEXAS 115




irginia A Resilient Industry

By Elyses Umlauf-Garneau


Betsy Atkinson, owner and broker of ERA Atkinson Realty offers an interesting perspective on the state of the real estate market. Her view is one that has relevance not only in her home state of Virginia, but to those across the country who are jittery about the real estate industry. She displays a calm about and confidence that stems from running a family real estate business established by her late father-in-law, Frank Atkinson, in 1943. In Virginia Beach, the lot that once sold for $2,000 in Frank Atkinson’s early days now goes for $2 million, she says. Since Betsy Atkinson started practicing real estate in 1968, she recalls experiencing every kind of market condition. She


saw interest rates that soared to 21 percent and plummeted to today’s rates. She’s seen prices skyrocket and tumble. And she’s watched consumer confidence bounce from ebullience to despair and back. Throughout it all, the company has stood and survived. It’s a lesson about the resilience of the real estate industry and testament to the importance of rolling with the natural ebb and flow of business cycles. Those ready to roll with this current real estate cycle have enormous options in Virginia. Just some of them are described across the next few pages.


VIRGINIA MARKETPLACE JEWEL OF VIRGINIA BEACH If that love entails beachfront living, Virginia Beach is poised to deliver. The lead-in for the spring story at the Virginia Beach Convention and Visitors Bureau web site hit just the right tone with the comment, “Mother Nature has finally hit the defrost button and Virginia Beach plans to make the most of the sun-filled days ahead.” And Layne Donovan of ERA Atkinson Realty in Virginia Beach has just the property to make the Virginia Beach experience all the better. The 5,262-square-foot house is situated right on the beach and within easy access of the city’s biggest attractions, such as the boardwalk and the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center, as well as to shopping and dining. Yet the property is situated in a peaceful, sheltered residential enclave, Croatan Beach, that Donovan calls “a secret jewel of Virginia Beach cut off from the hustle and bustle.” Among its selling points are its unique architecture and panoramic views of Rudee Inlet, the ocean, summer fireworks

that residents get from nearly every window. “The ocean and beach are framed like pictures from almost every inch of the house,” says Donovan. The three-story house features a bright open floor plan and four bedrooms. Donovan says the property could easily be converted to a five-bedroom home. A third-floor master suite encompasses the entire floor and offers water views and a loft area overlooking the living room. Its bathroom features a jetted tub, sauna, and his-and-hers vanities. The property’s outdoor space capitalizes on the waterfront venue and it includes multiple backyard decks, a hot tub and a private walkway to the beach. To sweeten the pot, there’s an incentive for buyers making a full-price offer of $1.9 million. “The house has great bones and we’re offering $50,000 so that a buyer can treat the property as a blank canvas and make design changes to customize the property,” comments Donovan.

A MARRIAGE OF HISTORY AND MODERNITY One-of-a-kind is a term bandied about fairly frequently in the real estate industry. But rarely is such an adjective truly fitting. Stone Ridge, an estate in Appomattox County, Virginia, is one that truly earns such accolades. The 2,500-acre estate includes a Colonial house built in the 1700s, its own mountain, and an eye-popping array of modern amenities. Its location, approximately eleven miles outside Lynchburg, is rich in history. The area played a important role in ending the Civil War, for example, and Thomas Jefferson used his nearby Poplar Forest, situated just outside Lynchburg, a year-round retreat. The land for Stone Ridge was awarded to Captain William Turner, formerly of the Continental Navy, in the mid-1780’s. Across a 40-year span Turner and his sons acquired additional land, including Turner’s Mountain, that sits on the estate today. The site includes two miles of shoreline along the James River, and the Colonial Manor home is situated on a bluff overlooking the river. Jay Miller, principal broker of Piedmont Sotheby’s International Realty in Washington, Virginia, says there’s one road in and one road out of the property, and the buyer seeking true solitude, can find complete quiet and isolation there. During the mid-1980s, a renovation executed by Truhart Poston, a specialist in Virginia Georgian Colonial design, freshened the image of the home, and at the same time, 118 VIRGINIA MARKETPLACE

maintained the character, features and materials of the original design. Yet, living in the property isn’t akin to tiptoeing around a museum. The property features something of an ideal marriage between history and modernity. Yes, the property’s original design was pristinely preserved, but a sympathetic addition also delivered an array of modern amenities and appointments. The estate is something of a playground. Miller ticks off a long list of Stone Ridge’s amenities that seem to rival what’s found at an upscale resort. Among them are a 6,000-bottle wine cellar indoor and outdoor tennis courts, indoor and outdoor pools, a fitness center and spa, a game room and billiards area, a bowling alley, a baseball field and a 15-seat movie theater. It also includes beach volleyball, a driving range and a shooting range. And a sporting clay course allows people to simulate field shooting with a variety of targets that replicate the flight habits of game birds. There’s also no shortage of opportunity for outdoor sports, such as fishing, snowmobiling and cross country skiing, horseback riding (the property features a 20-stall stable), and mountain biking and hiking. Miller says the property offers a new owner tremendous flexibility. It could remain intact as a private estate or a buyer could use it for future development. “I’ve been a broker for 25 years and I’ve never seen an estate quite like this one,” comments Miller.


VIRGINIA MARKETPLACE PURSUIT OF PEACE The pursuit of peace and quiet, along with quick access to city amenities are what bring people to Virginia’s Chesapeake Bay and River country in Southeastern Virginia, according to Jeanne Hockaday of Virginia Country Real Estate in Gloucester, Virginia. The region features a series of picturesque cities, yet they’re within easy access of Williamsburg and Yorktown, and the shopping, dining and cultural amenities of Newport News. It is in Hayes, Virginia, where Hockaday has a listing for those ready to pursue a slower pace on the waterfront. The 6,642-square-foot property, built in 2004, is situated on two acres along the York River. The ambiance, according to Hockaday, is very casual and family oriented. The family room, for instance, features a fireplace, a bar, a game table and wall of windows with water views “It’s geared for recreation and good times,” she says.

The four-bedroom home, a cross between a colonial and a contemporary, has a first-floor master suite that features closets that Hockaday describes as the size of most bedrooms. It also features a gourmet kitchen, a music loft and library overlooking the family room, dual fireplaces in the living room and a wraparound veranda. The outdoor space really delivers on amusement, with a pool and cabana house, a covered boat house, and a pier with three boat slips and a lift. There’s also a sandy beach that is ideal for sunning or crabbing. And Hockaday has another brand new listing that offers a different experience. It’s an estate on almost ten acres along the York River. The property features panoramic river and bay views it and includes stable for horses. “It’s an ideal house for retirement because everything is all on one level,” comments Hockaday.

PRIVACY, SECURITY AND VALUE Leslie Becker of Smith Mountain Lake Properties in Huddleston, Virginia, considers Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia one of those luxury gems that is somewhat undiscovered. It’s tucked in central Virginia along the Blue Ridge Mountains and is located between Roanoke and Lynchburg. Moreover, access by plane is fairly quick and painless from places like New York, Washington, D.C., and it’s a mere two-hour drive from Raleigh, N.C. It’s an ideal venue, according to Becker, for those who love a waterfront lifestyle, but are seeking value, views, convenience and culture. The residential make-up is well balanced among retirees, second homeowners and full-time residents. In addition, the area has seen an influx of international buyers from Canada, France, Germany and Italy. All are attracted by the lifestyle and amenities that the 20,600acre Smith Mountain Lake delivers. Dotting the lake’s 500 miles of shoreline is an array of luxury property that provides residents access to a full complement of water sports, including power boating, sailing and paddling. Becker says pricing for luxury homes ranges from about $800,000 to nearly $6 million.


Included among her current listings are a number of interesting properties. One, a 5,600-square-foot property, sits on a point of the lake and delivers residents resort-like ambiance and amenities. The five-bedroom Mission Style contemporary includes a home theater with surround sound, a sauna, tennis courts and resort-style pools. And for investors or those seeking a retreat, Becker has a unique property that includes two homes that are situated in a wildlife refuge. The property features 400 feet of lake shoreline, two separate docks and offers spectacular water and sunset views. The property offers tremendous flexibility and can serve as a family retreat, as a rental property, or it can be a site for spectacular new construction. Both properties cater to different buyers’ needs and represent the variety that Smith Lake Mountain offers to prospective buyers. And, comments Becker, “People are looking for value, and here they’re finding a reasonably priced asset with privacy, a sense of security. I
