By Natalie Watson

If you follow the Historic Lewis & Clark Trail along the banks of the Sandy River you will soon arrive in the historic town of Troutdale. This charming town is known for being the gateway to the famous Colombia River Gorge National Scenic Area or, as the locals call it, “The Gorge of the Gods!” Troutdale lies alongside the meandering Sandy River rich with swimming holes, recreational areas and historic state parks. Troutdale, Oregon, a small town located just 15 minutes from downtown Portland. Troutdale is the type of place that provides an instant feeling of home, neighbors are friendly, community is embraced and it is a delightful place to live! One of our favorite discoveries is located up a private, winding road behind a gated entrance. Here we find a luxurious 14,000-square-foot home on 96-acres of pristine Oregon land. Designed with low horizontal lines in mind and resembling a Frank Lloyd Wright Prairie-style home. “What’s most breathtaking about this property is the jaw dropping, nearly 360-degree view of the Columbia River Gorge complimented by city lights of Portland in the distance,” says Tammy Beckley. The two-level estate greets you with a grand lighted porte-cochere entry complete with water feature, lighted fountains and lush landscaping. The home’s interior has six ensuite bedrooms. On the main floor you will find a formal living room , an executive office, formal dining room with adjacent butler’s pantry, full bar and an impressive top-of-the-line gourmet kitchen. Adjacent to the kitchen is an informal dining room and plush sunken family room offering an inviting fireplace, built-in media center and floor-to-ceiling windows. The lower level has private mother-in-law quarters with a full kitchen, living room, family room and full bathroom. This area is easily accessible with its own entry or, by the two staircases or elevator that descend from the main floor. Entertaining is made easy with a home theatre, billiard room, gym, sauna, outdoor pool and a wine cellar that is naturally to temperature. While the luxurious interior design details such as the four flagstone fireplaces, marble and travertine flooring as well as solid cherry wood cabinets, doors and moldings, may seem to have a woman’s touch, the 14-carheated garage with warm water wash station is the perfect refuge for any man or devout auto collector. An additional 8,000-square-foot covered outbuilding would be perfect for wine production. This property could be the perfect equestrian ranch utilizing the outbuilding as a horse stable, complete with caretaker’s quarters inside. To store your tractors, commercial trucks, RVs or boats, the outbuilding is the perfect solution complete with oversized doors, concrete flooring and two fueling stations. There is also a helicopter pad to privately access the home by flying right in! Offered at $3,995,000. Please inquire about financing options from the seller.

Wide W i d eOpen O p e n SSpaces paces By Lauryn Howell and Hannah Mobarekeh

For centuries people have been traveling West in search of wide open spaces and a simpler way of life. They were greeted by towering mountain ranges and endless panoramic views, but, more importantly, they were greeted by opportunity. Today, these same western havens have given way to a unique lifestyle. Equestrian living, as it

has become known, is full of serenity, seclusion and a much deeper, more aware appreciation of the land. It’s the sort of life that brings families together for decades to come. Whether you prefer Montana’s wildlife or the ranches of Northern California, there’s an equestrian lifestyle perfectly suited for everyone.

Bozeman, Montana The Last Best Place

The state of Montana is often called “the last best place.” With its wide open spaces, abundance of wildlife, crystal clear rivers, vastly beautiful forests and towering mountains, it’s easy to see how it earned that title. While enjoying the pure magnificence of a Montana sunset it’s not uncommon to encounter a herd of elk traveling right through your backyard. As you gaze into the star filled sky, where entire galaxies can be seen thanks to the minimal amounts of light pollution, the cry of a wild coyote croons. All of these natural wonders give way to endless outdoor activities. Residents can be found hiking, skiing, kayaking or simply enjoying a night on Main Street listening to the local bands. It’s no surprise that Montana is a young state that keeps getting younger with more and more families choosing to raise their children there each year. Sally Uhlmann of the PureWest’s Platinum Team is

a Montana resident who’s beyond passionate about this remarkable state. Elk Haven on Teepee Ridge is one of Sally Uhlmann’s many magnificent properties. Elk Haven exhibits all of the most desirable characteristics of Montana living: seclusion and privacy while remaining a short 18 minutes away from downtown Bozeman. Situated on 63 acres, Elk Haven is a Montana adaptation of an English Country Manor complete with a private barn. Owners also have private riding access into the surrounding National Forest. In the words of Sally Uhlmann, “One of the things that I really love about Montana is that nature is so prevalent here. It’s in your face and, consequently, people who live here very quickly understand that human beings are pretty insignificant compared to nature, and it’s good to have that put into perspective.” It truly is a land of freedom and rugged individualism.

It's a growing area with more and more vacationers calling this beautiful area home each year.

FORT LAUDERDALE

Lively and Relaxing Fort Lauderdale is often referred to as the Venice of America, with its intricate and expansive system of intersecting canals. The city is considered one of the boating capitals of the world with first class boating facilities for repairs and dockage found abound. Port Everglades is the third largest cruise port in the world and home port for the two largest cruise ships. “Over the years, Fort Lauderdale has flourished, becoming one of America’s most popular and prosperous cities,” says Eileen Kedersha, real estate agent for One Sotheby’s International Realty. In fact, Fort Lauderdale is the fourth most sought after vacation destination, stimulating demand from international home buyers. The climate in Fort Lauderdale is perfect for outdoor activities. Walking on Las Olas Boulevard you’ll encounter a thriving business district, lovely shops and unbelievable restaurants. Paralleling Las Olas Boulevard is the Riverwalk Arts and Entertainment District where you can visit the

Broward Center for Performing Arts and other art galleries, engage in historical tours and listen to live music. One of Kedersha’s listings is a majestic 31-room estate, located on a double point lot in the heart of Fort Lauderdale with 650-feet of water frontage and outstanding views of the Intracoastal Waterway. The home has 9 bedrooms, 13-full baths and 4-half baths. “This luxurious home intricately blends indoor and outdoor living with superb attention to the use of stone and wood,” says Kedersha.

Perfect for entertaining, the stunning property also has Spanish-style verandas and gardens, a complete summer kitchen and a 3-room guesthouse.

FORT LAUDERDALE A Tropical Oasis For many a torn soul, the call to the ocean is irresistible, but the pulsing energy of city life is a necessity. It seems a choice must be made. But, why? In Fort Lauderdale, Florida, cerulean seas and slick, glass towers live in harmony, offering all of the excitement of the city with an impossibly turquoise backdrop.

dock to indulge in a day of deep-sea fishing or world-class diving.

It’s a city that’s emerging as the grown-up version of its past self. “Fort Lauderdale has lost its spring break dogma,” contends Julie Jones, broker associate with Premier Estate Properties. “It’s becoming sophisticated.”

But inventory is far from outdated. “We’re seeing a lot of older houses, even those from the ‘90s, being torn down and replaced.” That means shiny, new, updated inventory is becoming available every day.

The transformation has not gone unnoticed. Buyers from as far as New York and Massachusetts are ditching their sweater collections and buying beachfront...and they aren’t alone.

True luxury condo living with sweeping views of the Atlantic horizon can be had with a cool $3.5 million. Sprawling single family homes are available as well, where one only needs to cross the lawn to dip one’s toes into the water.

Like its uber-flashy neighbor, Miami, Fort Lauderdale is enjoying a multicultural explosion. Foreign buyers are snapping up prime perches for luxe vacation pads, and are increasingly committing, choosing to call this tropical metropolis home.

Not only is the market sizzling, Jones says, properties are getting a makeover, too. “What’s happening now is that the market is recovering very quickly, and we have sellers encouraged to put their houses on the market.”

Jones’ latest listing, pictured, is a magnificent point estate offered at $12.9 million, and is a perfect example of the exciting prospects at hand.

PROPERTY SPOTLIGHT

La Maison de Lucy Alford, Florida

By Cathleen McCann One of the most unique and luxurious bed and breakfast getaways in Florida actually began life as a schoolhouse in the 1930s. Located in Alford, a town on the Florida Panhandle just outside of Panama City Beach, La Maison de Lucy is a top-rated boutique bed and breakfast and event center that celebrates beauty from around the world.

O

Situated on three acres of beautifully landscaped grounds, the $3.2-million historic landmark features twelve spacious suites individually decorated to represent ten different countries—from India, to Morocco, to Kenya and Ireland, to name a few. The owner, an interior designer from France, has handpicked the furnishings and created the decor for each room. “The attention to detail in every room is impeccable,” says Broker Michael Setboun, with Century 21 Ryan Realty in Panama City Beach. “You really feel like you have been transported to that particular country.” Recently refurbished to today’s standards with top-of-the-line amenities and an elegant ambiance,

PROPERTY SPOTLIGHT

La Maison de Lucy can accommodate up to thirty-five guests. The property consists of two buildings. An 11,000-square-foot main building houses the beautifully decorated suites, a dining room, sitting room and library, as well as a professional kitchen. Next door is a 4,000-square-foot event center that can accommodate 300 people, has a commercial kitchen and offers a 2,500-square-foot deck with recessed lighting. A pool with a generously-sized deck, gym, sauna and spa are also included at La Maison de Lucy. A truly unique bed and breakfast and one-of-a-kind offering, La Maison de Lucy is being sold as a commercial property. However, it can be transformed in a variety of ways to suit the needs of the buyer. “It would make a wonderful private residence or second home, perfect for entertaining family and friends,” says Setboun. “Another possibility is converting it into a recording studio and writing retreat for a music industry performer.”

DESTINATION

DESTINATION: NAPLES, FLORIDA

ELITE LIVING, FLORIDA FUN By Monica Cavanaugh hen one peruses home design glossies, daydreaming about second and third homes, it’s often the preppy manors of Martha’s Vineyard and the stunning chalets of Aspen that set hearts aflutter. In recent years, another, warmer contender has filled eager buyers’ eyes with stars. Sprawled luxuriously along the southwestern coast of Florida, Naples offers swank sophistication with legendary surf and sun as a backdrop.

W

A far cry from its fishing village past, this glitzy oasis is a spot-on mix of luxury and pure Florida fun. Love surfer chic by day and couture by night? Only here will you find Lanvin and Valentino alongside Quicksilver and Billabong. Four-star dining, award-winning golf, world-class boating and postcard-perfect beaches push this surfside gem to the next level. It sounds so idyllic that it’s hard to imagine why people bother to live elsewhere. Sometimes, they just give up trying.

“Buyers typically start with a second home here, and then they make it part time, and then full time,” says Realtor Phil Wood. A lifelong resident with 35 years in the business, Wood can certainly appreciate the tremendous draw. Representing John R. Wood Realtors, which has been negotiating deals for more than fifty years, he has a keen understanding of his market—and it’s a tight one. “Our inventory in the Naples area itself is now down to less than 4,000 units, and it has been continually dropping for the past 5 years. It is a very thriving market right now, with prices going up rapidly.” Want waterfront? As of early August, a mere 79 single family homes are up for grabs. While some fixer uppers can be had for a sing-songy $600,000, others are going for a cool twenty million. “Naples is a very popular place for those who can afford a very special lifestyle,” says Wood. Very special, indeed. See some of “Naples Finest Estate Properties” on the next page.

WATERFRONT

By Lauryn Howell, Nicole Lauber, Hannah Morbarekeh, Natalie Watson

You wake up to the sound of waves folding into themselves and settling on powdery white sand. Gulls caw in the background, and a cool sea breeze blows through your window, keeping you from getting too warm. Pinks, oranges and yellows reflect in your room as the sun slowly rises and brightens everything around it. This can be your morning every day when you live in a waterfront property. The waterfront cities we visit have spectacular sunrises, but each are unique in their own way. Enjoy the many festivals in Virginia Beach, or revel in the serenity

POMPANO BEACH, FLORIDA Pompano Beach, “the boating capital of the world,” is located in South Florida, just off the Hillsboro Inlet. “Pompano Beach has the most affordable homes with the closest unrestricted ocean access in the entire country,” says Heather Lefebvre, Real Estate Broker-Associate for Adache Real Estate. “It also borders some of the most expensive oceanfront real estate, including the exclusive Hillsboro Mile.” Lefebvre raved how Pompano Beach is by far the best kept secret – "It's a brand new town!" An undiscovered gem, Pompano Beach, has undergone a multi-million dollar redevelopment project emphasizing the friendly, laid-back characteristics of this beachfront town. The redesign features a brand new Caribbean-style beach with state-of-the-art outdoor gym, private BBQ pavilions and sitting areas with grassy knolls to sun and nap. Pompano's Atlantic Boulevard features fabulous outdoor restaurants, chic cafes and shops. On special nights just near the pier, you can also enjoy listening to live music and watching festive fireworks displays. Pompano Beach has the widest, most pristine, white sand beaches, which stretch for 3.5 miles. This oceanside paradise offers water activities, such as deep sea fishing, spear fishing, kite boarding, paddle-boarding and surfing. With luscious reefs just yards off the coast, Pompano Beach has

some of the best spots for scuba, snorkeling and lobster diving. “Architecturally, waterfront homes in Pompano are all so different and unique, which is why it is so special,” says Lefebvre. “You can find anything, from Key West style homes to Mediterranean opulence and contemporary tastes. It’s a great eclectic mixture and has something for everyone.” Pompano Beach attracts a variety of prospective home buyers from both international and out-of-state locations looking to invest in a second home. The friendly locals are mostly young families and empty nesters. Pompano Beach is also a very vacation friendly community. In fact, Adache Real Estate has a unique specialty. What if your vacation home "earned” you money? “Finally, a way to literally get the best of both worlds,” says Lefebvre. The program allows you to use your home whenever you want, and the rest of the time it is managed and rented, no leases involved, on a weekly minimum. This program allows your second home to generate income while you’re not enjoying it. Each home will vary depending on price, location, size and other factors. Finally, an attainable path to your dream home in Florida. Come live and enjoy the beach life. Visit www.OceanAreaLiving.com for details.

MARYLAND’S EASTERN SHORE Ask Kathy Christensen of Benson & Mangold Real Estate about the perks of living along the Eastern Shore of Maryland, and you’ll hear a lot about water and wind. The fall winds make for a spectacular visit, and her featured riverfront properties all have good water depth, perfect for cruisers and clippers alike. She sings of regattas and boat shows and waterfowl hunting season, a nationwide draw, the way other realtors brag of fine dining, shopping and golf. While she may not crow about those last three, her market, which includes Easton, Oxford and St. Michaels, offers them all, and more, on an impressive scale. “Downtown Easton has a great historic district with world-class dining and shopping,” she says, almost as an aside, before waxing on about an annual, three-day waterfowl festival featuring artists and artisans from across the country. “Some of the hand-carved decoys sell for thousands of dollars!” “Oxford is a little more sleepy,” she says, but it certainly keeps busy hosting a myriad of championship regattas.

Christensen’s offerings range from “entry level waterfront to higher-end properties,” with prices ranging from $400,000 into the millions. Serene escapes are available at all price points. Perhaps a deal breaker for someone seeking über mod riverfront spreads, local lawmakers are “very conscientious of preserving the historic look, and are very strict on growth,” she says, noting that waterfront development in particular has recently revised guidelines for what will and won’t fly.

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SOUTH CAROLINA Welcome to Hilton Head Island, a celebrated landmark for yachtsmen who cruise the Intracoastal Waterway, as well as one of the most family-friendly destinations in the world. “For more than three decades, Hilton Head Island has offered one of the finest ports of call on the Southeastern Coast,” says Jacque Johnson, a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist with Charter One Realty. “If you are looking for pleasant layovers, historic places to visit, fine dining and beautiful wildlife environments, cruising the Intracoastal Waterway with Hilton Head as your homeport is the experience of a lifetime.” From Hilton Head Island, Charleston is only a half-day cruise away, making it a perfect destination for a long weekend. Ports in Georgia make for a fun week of cruising, and you can also plan longer aquatic trips to the Florida Keys and beyond. Rich in natural beauty and wildlife, the paths of the Intracoastal Waterway near Hilton Head Island should not be missed. Prefer to stay on the Island for a few days? Resort amenities, like more than 20 golf courses and 300 tennis courts, are 86

readily available. The gorgeous, natural environment of the island makes the perfect backdrop for family getaways. Enjoy miles of pristine beaches, kayaking through beautiful marshland and biking on paths surrounded by the island’s signature Live Oaks draped in Spanish Moss. One estate that Jacque is currently representing is 30 Wexford on the Green in prestigious Wexford Plantation. This 6,228square-foot residential complex is for a discriminating buyer, as the interior touches include artistically crafted windows, doors and cabinetry, Brazilian cherry wood floors with oak accents, Pella windows, Villery & Boch tile floors and more. A private swimming pool and spa, two separate guesthouses, four garages, a private courtyard garden and extensive landscaping with hardscape accents are included. With its wide range of amenities, it’s no wonder that Jacque sees Hilton Head Island as a hidden gem on the Southeastern Coast. “There’s something marvelously different about the relaxed, warm island attitude found at Hilton Head Island that makes it the best destination.”

WATERFRONT PROPERTIES VIRGINIA BEACH, VIRGINIA Boasting 38 miles of sandy shores, Virginia Beach meets the requisites for being a beach town, but also proves to be more than just a seasonal destination. Layne Donovan of ERA Atkinson Realty is one who has been lucky enough to call the area home for roughly 18 years. He has seen the city grow and attract yearround residents, second home buyers and investors interested in the area’s profitable rental market and relaxing beach lifestyle. “Virginia Beach is like a small big city,” says Layne. “From the many festivals to the annual surf championship, there’s something to do every weekend.” Those festivals include events like the American Sand Soccer Championship, the Patriotic Music Festival, Boardwalk Art Show, Rock & Roll Half Marathon and the ever-popular Neptune Festival, a family friendly festival held at the boardwalk every year. Virginia Beach also has a culturally refined side, exhibited by the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art, where spectators can see anything from Normal Rockwell to Andy Warhol. Virginia Beach also has the Virginia Aquarium, conveniently located at the oceanfront. With such a vibrant community to offer, it’s no mystery why Virginia Beach currently has an active real estate market. A mixture of low interest rates and a good inventory of well-

priced available properties have been fueling the momentum behind this market, notes Layne. 848 South Atlantic Avenue presents a great rental opportunity for a prospective investor buyer, a second home or a year-round primary residence. This gorgeous oceanfront home offers wonderful spaces for entertaining, including a dune-top outdoor deck with glider, a hot tub and a new pool, complete with stone paver surround, just steps from the beach. 604 Croatan Hills Court could be the perfect home for a large family or investor, located on the highest elevated lot in Croatan. This translates to one of a kind privacy and views from the huge rooftop deck of this open and airy 5,500-square-foot home. Other features include a new custom chef’s kitchen from Italy outfitted with top-of-the-line appliances and a stunning master suite with its own private deck. This home also has a large heated salt water pool with Travertine paver surround. Offering year-round activities, unmatched property opportunities and arts and culture, Virginia Beach is a natural choice for those seeking the beach lifestyle with all the amenities of a larger city. Whether it’s a home for hosting guests, an investment or a retirement home, Virginia Beach has the properties available to make your waterfront dreams a reality.

SOUTH FLORIDA The waterfront market in South Florida is hot! Whether you’re looking for a beachfront condo or an intracoastal estate, you’re bound to find a gorgeous property to establish roots here. “The great thing about Miami waterfront is the myriad of choices you find in designs and styles. The current trend is for homes with contemporary architecture that is fresh and vibrant, as well as timeless,” says Sylvia Fragos of Great Estates International Realty, Inc., in South Florida. Nothing says South Florida like this stunning 4-bedroom, 4-anda-half-bath residence in the exclusive Bellamare at Williams Island. Located in the privately gated enclave of Williams Island on the intracoastal and overlooking the ocean, this residence offers exquisite design, extraordinary views and exceptional space. The floor plan allows sunrise and sunset views, and the floor-to-ceiling windows invite natural light into every room. Magnificently detailed with rich wood columns and light color marble floors, it is a perfect South Florida waterfront residence. A full-service deep-water marina for yachts up to 160 feet is also available. This home is priced to sell at $2,849,000. 88

WATERFRONT PROPERTIES

Living on the waterfront can be a lifestyle change. Inviting waterways instigate a deeper appreciation for time spent outdoors and for engaging in an active, healthier lifestyle through recreational activities such as boating, paddle boarding and water skiing. The temperatures in South Florida can be hot, so living on the waterfront in an area like Miami or Miami Beach brings in cool breezes that don’t normally reach further inland. South Florida is also the international gateway to Latin America and Europe, and thus benefits from diversity of culture, cuisine and arts scenes. Every year Miami hosts Art Basel and The South Beach Wine and Food Festival, as well as the Miami International and Fort Lauderdale International Boat Shows, just to name a few of the city’s events. Indulge in all there is to do and experience in South Florida, or choose to sit back, relax and enjoy the views.

WATERFRONT PROPERTIES CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA Known for a plethora of recreational island activities, an inviting community and its well-preserved architecture and landscapes, the term “southern charm” couldn’t ring more true for Charleston, South Carolina. “When one sees Charleston for the first time, they are in awe of the coast, the harbor, the towering beautiful mansions, the cobblestone streets, the massive oak trees dripping with moss and the lush courtyards,” says Debbie Fisher, broker with Handsome Properties, a boutique luxury real estate firm in Charleston. “There is really not another city in the country that compares.” Residents and visitors alike take advantage of the area’s barrier islands to enjoy sailing, beach sports and boating. Charleston and the surrounding islands are also home to incredible golf resorts, like Kiawah Island Golf Resort on Kiawah Island and the Charleston Country Club on James Island. Daniel Island plays host to the Family Circle Tennis Tournament every year. As the city with the largest concentration of 18th and 19th century homes in the United States, Charleston offers many preservation home tours and antique shows.

Of course, southern hospitality is second nature to the residents of Charleston. The city was voted “America’s Most Friendly” by Travel + Leisure in 2011, as well as in 2013 by Condé Nast Traveler. “Charleston is a relaxed and inviting community,” Debbie says. “It has always been that way since the 17th century. Charlestonians continue to welcome people to be a part of their history and their community.” One property that Debbie is currently representing is the Theodore Gaillard House, which has been noted as one of the finest Federal Homes in the country. Charleston’s top restoration experts, architect Glenn Keyes, contractor Richard Marks and landscape architect Sheila Wertimer, collaborated with the current owner to carefully revitalize and restore the estate to perfection. The 1.25-acre property includes a 9,345-square-foot main residence, a kitchen house with four bedrooms and two-and-ahalf bathrooms, and a carriage house with two bedrooms and two-full bathrooms. The grounds also include a large garage, a pool and a pool house with an outdoor kitchen and bath.

HATTERAS ISLAND, NORTH CAROLINA The word “beach” usually elicits thoughts of sun tans, bikinis and jam packed shorelines. For Alex Risser of Outer Beaches Realty, the word brings up memories of childhood and “the beaches of old.” These beaches of old were quiet havens, places where family and friends could escape reality and spend endless amounts of time in the sunshine just enjoying each other’s company. This is exactly what drew Alex to Hatteras Island 28 years ago. Unlike the neighboring islands of the famous Outer Banks, Hatteras Island is family oriented. When asked to describe the Island, Alex Risser responded, “To encapsulate what Hatteras Island means to the people who come here, I would use the word ‘togethering.’ It allows varied groups to come together, primarily families with multiple generations. They eat together and sleep together, and all while being surrounded by one of the best beach destinations in the world.” Even in the busy season

WATERFRONT PROPERTIES

there’s no more than one line of blankets on the beach. Relaxing on the sand is always an option, but if you’re looking for an adventure, Hatteras Island also has plenty of water sports and activities to offer. One of Alex Risser’s stunning Hatteras Island properties is the Amorous. Surrounded by breathtaking ocean views, Amorous replaced a slightly older home, opening the door for both renovations and upgrades, with the new interior design done by the Hatteras Island Design Center. In the words of Alex Risser, “You cannot get a better home for a weekend getaway.” Because Hatteras Island is an extra hour away from the rest of the Outer Banks, the crowds are small and people come to stay. Despite being so close to millions of people and vacationers, Hatteras Island has remained secluded and serene, making it the ideal getaway for family and friends alike.

The state of Nevada has a variety of features to offer its visitors and residents. Beautiful mountains and landscapes flow throughout the state, attracting outdoorsmen and families alike, but take a trip down to south Nevada and you’ll find something quite different. This unique state is also home to one of the most famously luxurious and extravagantly upscale cities in the United States, Las Vegas. Whether you’re enjoying the great outdoors or testing your luck on the strip, there’s never a dull moment in Nevada. It also maintains its own part

of the famous Lake Tahoe with more and more residents and visitors choosing the Nevada shorelines over California’s each year. It’s not just the breathtaking panoramic views and simply stunning natural beauty of north Lake Tahoe that attracts everyone; Nevada residents enjoy no state income taxes. In describing locations, it’s often said that there’s something here for everyone. Never has a destination embodied this phrase quite so well as the uniquely beautiful and wildly adventurous state of Nevada.

Luxurious Las Vegas Las Vegas. That legendary playground for the posh, an extravagant landing for those who demand the best, awaits you.

and more parks per capita than most states in the country.” All at a relative steal.

So does realtor Tom Love, of the Tom Love Group, who’s well versed in brokering swank spreads in this tony town.

Rebounding beautifully from the market crash with impressive inventory, low cost of living and no state tax, Las Vegas “is ranked number one in the country for appreciation, and that includes the luxury market. It’s becoming a mecca for people who want a great lifestyle at a low cost.” Not to mention those with investment bucks to burn.

Realtor to international hoteliers, Grammy winners, film stars and sports pros, Love is your go-to for super luxury in Las Vegas. His most recent sale, an $18 million estate, was the most expensive in the city within the last year, and is just the latest addition to an impressive portfolio.

Should you wish to safeguard your hard-earned scratch and invest in one of Love’s showstopper properties, consider his latest listing.

The Vegas Strip, famous for its glittering casinos, superior shopping and dining so fine “world class” seems to be an understatement, is only part of the draw of this desert oasis.

Located in the chic DragonRidge Golf Club, the 20,000-plussquare-foot contemporary stunner boasts 5 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, an infinity lagoon pool, 5,000 square feet of outdoor living space and guarded gate access, all with unobstructed views straight down the fairway and out across the Strip. “It’s an architectural masterpiece,” he says. “The finishes are to the moon.”

“People have the perception that Vegas is just the Strip,” says Love, “but if you leave it, we have great schools, great hospitals

To the moon, indeed. Living the Las Vegas life is simply out of this world.

His record astounds, but there’s no denying that this town has so much to offer that it nearly sells itself.

North Lake Tahoe The North Lake Tahoe area in Nevada is typically synonymous with powder-white slopes, deep blue water and majestic mountain estates that seem to meld seamlessly into the landscape. But, recently, it has been popular for another reason. Realtor/Broker Owners Chris and Patti Plastiras of Lakeshore Realty in Incline Village note that there has been an influx of buyers seeking the activities, the scenery and the value that North Lake Tahoe properties provide. This is especially true with homebuyers who are from California, a state known for their historically higher taxes. “Since the beginning of 2013, Lakeshore Realty has closed 39 residential sales along the Nevada shores of Lake Tahoe to buyers who are migrating from California,” says Plastiras. “Of the total, 40 percent of the buyers specifically said they’re moving to Nevada for tax-related benefits.” For those who are not as dollars-and-cents minded, North Lake Tahoe offers breathtaking beauty and countless outdoor activities to partake in year-round. From the world-class skiing, to summertime hiking and kayaking, there’s always a means to enjoy your surroundings. With properties ranging from smaller condos to

mountain retreats, different lifestyles can be accommodated easily. Nestled in the green pines of Incline Village is one such mountain retreat. 900 Lakeshore Boulevard presents an opportunity to own an expansive 5-bedroom, 5-bathroom lodge-like oasis in a desirable neighborhood. The custom floor plan consists of a lower level comprised of a media room with backyard access, a junior kitchen and flexible room for an office or guest room. The upper level boasts 3 ensuite bedrooms- perfect when entertaining a full house of guests. Rustic wood beams open up to the entryway, which faces the grand living room with its towering ceilings to create an airy feeling right when entering the home. A large outdoor entertainment area takes full advantage of the gorgeous forested views and showcases the large outdoor hot tub. Incline Village and its neighboring cities open up a world of outdoor possibilities, whether you enjoy the great outdoors or prefer to stay fireside indoors.

Dayton, Nevada “Daney Canyon Ranch is a secret paradise” says Charlene Meenan of Chase International. Just minutes away from Virginia City and Carson City, in Northern Nevada, you will find the 225acre Daney Canyon Ranch. It’s nestled away from all the hustle and bustle of everyday life, yet still only half of a mile west of Dayton. The Daney Canyon Ranch is enhanced by resort style living. The main Spanish-styled home is a 3,278-square-foot, 3-bedroom house with magnificent stained glass windows, Spanish tile floors and an open floor plan. The main house complex features a large outdoor swimming pool with built-in hot tub and an entertainment cabana with barbecue. Additionally, in the pool house there is an exercise room, steam room, changing room and a half-bath. Below the main house is a large pond and a gazebo. Behind the pool area is the generator room, ensuring a power supply, no matter the weather. By the upper guesthouse are two large walk-in bunkers for storing supplies, food or whatever you need to store. Just below the main house is an Agra Tech 25-foot by 37-foot

He is a painter and sculptor in the traditional or realist style of the Old West. His heroic bronze statue of Kit Carson can be found in front of the capital in Carson City, Nevada.

East Shore of Lake Tahoe With an abundance of recreational activities throughout the year, beautiful weather no matter the month and tax incentives for residents, it’s no wonder that living on the east shore of Lake Tahoe, Nevada, is highly sought after by many. “The east shore of Lake Tahoe is one of those places that’s easy to fall in love with,” says Jon Kirkpatrick, luxury real estate agent with Chase International. “It’s one of those places that you want to come to, spend time in and be a part of.” Considered as a true year-round resort community, Lake Tahoe’s residents and visitors can take advantage of many outdoor activities. During the warmer months, boating, fishing, kayaking, standup paddle boarding, hiking, horseback riding and golfing are very popular. In the winter, twelve ski resorts are in the area, and there are plenty of places to snowshoe, snowmobile and ice-skate.

residents enjoy no state income tax. “The 39 $1 million-plus homes sold since January 1 are testament to the fact that the east shore’s luxury real estate market is starting to heat up,” Jon says. “People see Tahoe as a place that provides an attractive lifestyle. They also want to live where they can enjoy the many tax advantages Nevada offers.” One listing that Jon is currently representing is 202 Pine Tree Lane, an 11-acre compound in the private community of Glenbrook. With spectacular views of Lake Tahoe, the 12,000-square-foot main residence includes six suites, a wine cellar, a large living room with timber-framed ceilings and a full wet bar, a 60-foot indoor lap pool and 8-foot hot tub and a gym with a sauna and steam room. Acres of manicured lawns and aspen groves provide a serene setting, and an Olympic-sized tennis court, two large garages and a clubhouse are also included to entertain guests. 

It’s easy to see why someone would choose to live on the Nevada side of Lake Tahoe, as opposed to the California side: Nevada’s

MARKET INSIGHT

VIRGINIA BEACH, VIRGINIA WONDERFUL WATERFRONT

By Cathleen McCann Located at the southeastern entrance to the Chesapeake Bay, Virginia Beach is the largest city in the state of Virginia. Its relaxed lifestyle and prime mid-Atlantic location have helped make Virginia Beach one of the most desirable areas on the East Coast. Blessed with over thirty miles of shoreline and seventy miles of scenic waterways, Virginia Beach is a prime spot for waterfront properties. Whether you are searching for a single-family home, a condominium or land to build your dream home, Jeanne West, associate broker with William E. Wood and Associates Realtors in Virginia Beach, is a fabulous resource for both buyers and sellers.

A lifelong resident of the area, West has been selling real estate in the Hampton Roads region for more than 35 years. Her impressive list of credentials includes membership in the Hampton Roads Realtor Association’s Circle of Excellence and a coveted position in the top one percent of all area realtors. Specializing in properties on and near the water in Virginia Beach and the surrounding communities, West’s expertise allows her to advise her clients as to the advantages of each available property in the area. She recently joined the luxury homes division of William E. Wood. The firm is among the leaders in marketing luxury homes in the area. “The waterfront is the highlight of Virginia Beach,” West says. “Our mild climate allows for maximum enjoyment of the outdoors.” The three-mile long Virginia Beach Boardwalk is one of the area’s more notable attractions, and a center of activity. First Landing State Park is another big draw. Upscale urban amenities and premier dining and entertainment venues are plentiful. Ample options for waterfront homes can be found in the area’s many lovely neighborhoods bordering Broad Bay, Linkhorn Bay and Lynnhaven River. “It’s a great place for families, vacation homeowners and retirees,” says West. “There is something here for everyone.”

Almost Heaven Farm

Just five miles from Interstate 77 in Beckley, West Virginia sits a 90.16-acre gentleman’s farm. The best of everything, including materials and craftsmen, were specially selected as the original owner, a well-known local contractor, built the home himself. Even the stones found in the house’s masonry were each hand selected by the best stone masons in the area. Looking in any direction from the property, whether toward the farm outlined by the 1.6 miles of iconic white fence or toward the green-grass framed home, the views are breathtaking and fantastically unique. Flower gardens, 80 acres of farmland stocked with 40 beef cattle, four barns, several garages, a helicopter pad and hanger and thousands of dollars worth of farm equipment can be found on the premises. The master bedroom’s large windows ensure a naturally lit beauty of a view every morning. The show continues in the master bathroom, where a skylight illuminates the whirlpool tub surrounded by heated floors for cold winter mornings. Tucked within the rest of the home are six bedrooms, a sauna, four fireplaces and a fully-stocked bomb shelter, all completely furnished. Back outside, the cedar deck provides spacious seating and features a gazebo alongside an arched bridge to the adjacent pool. Around the pool and underneath the deck’s gazebo, is a man-made stone lined stream. It trickles peacefully as residents relax in their private pool on their custom deck. This unique farm combines luxurious features with Midwestern charm to suit residents of all lifestyles. This property encompasses everything one could desire in a West Virginia home, with an extra dash of pure elegance and luxury. It is truly a farm from heaven. Total Price: $9,500,000.00
