The Icon of Riddell’s Bay

For over 200 years the Heron’s Nest Estate has boasted one of the most spectacular waterfronts in Bermuda – the true Icon of Riddell’s Bay. This special property’s rich heritage began with the earliest recorded conveyance in 1803, purchased in 1936 by one of the General Motors Company founder’s family heirs. This rare waterfront estate, complete with its own private “Haggis Island’, remained in this same family until recently. The house enjoys over 450 ft of prime boating waterfront on the protected waters of Riddell’s Bay complete with a large deep water dock, 2 boat moorings and a spacious 2 bedroom cottage. The 2 storey main house is approximately 5,300 square feet with original design by Wil Onions. The house proper consists of 6 bedrooms - most offering breathtaking views of The Great Sound and Riddell’s Bay - plus 4 fireplaces, French doors to a large terrace overlooking the water as well as a 2 bedroom, 1 bath staff quarter. It is also finished with valuable aged Bermuda Cedar throughout.

Included is also a spacious cottage, recently renovated with garage, laundry room, and 2 fireplaces. In addition, the property offers croquet lawn with fish ponds and horticultural buildings. The current owner’s vision is transforming this beautiful eight+ acre estate into an exclusive boatable waterfront community. Lots are approximately .5 acre in size excluding the main house lot which is over 4 acres. All have fabulous water or overland views and all new owners will enjoy waterfront access with dock. This estate sits on prime protected waterfront; the well-appointed grounds are lush with many types of trees such as Grape Bay, Pittosporum, Oleander, Bermuda Cedars and fragrant Frangipani. Rarely do properties of this nature come to the market - perhaps a handful in one’s lifetime. Heron’s Nest House & Heron’s Nest Cottage offered at $5,995,000 (inclusive of Haggis Island); Estate lots starting at $775,000. Please contact Rhonda Casling at Rego Sotheby’s International Realty.

This is the life! Live in peaceful Somerset with a great view over the Sound, and commute to town from Cavello Bay ferry stop just minutes from your front door. The cottage has a spacious living room with working fireplace, a covered porch for enjoying the breezes and the view, and two bedrooms. The kitchen is designed for a dedicated gourmet cook. There is also an unfinished lower level. Please contact the sole listing agent Margot Cooper 441-535-4323 or email margotcooper@ibl.bm

You’ll be investing time, money and emotional Rhonda Casling energy building your dream home, so for a successful outcome, take the following steps. 1) Put your wish list together. Consider your day to day functionality as well as your lifestyle preferences. On a basic level, how many bedrooms, baths, etc does your family require? Do you require quick access to shopping or schools or want closer proximity to a golf course? Do you want water access, views? Do you want a short commute to work or a slightly longer drive for a sanctuary at the end of a long day? Do you want to jump into your boat without needing a car or bike to get to it? 2) Plan your finances…if you don’t require financing and plan to pay cash, count your blessings. If you require financing, go sit down with a reputable lender and find out how much cash you need for

4) Interview (and ultimately hire) your architect You want an architect who can capture your vision and best put it into a realistic design for the land you are communicate well and stay on budget. Make sure they assist with the planning approval process so you know your dream house is legally on course. 5) Interview and hire you contractor: Make sure also, that your contractor has an excellent reputation for doing quality work and coming in on time and on budget. In both cases, ask architects and contractors for reference and check them out. 6) The Build…stop at your site on a regular basis and make sure the construction is going as planned. Get excited and start to envision your family living in your dream home!

3) Find your dream Location, Location, Location: You are now ready to begin your search for the perfect lot of land. Particularly here in Bermuda, prime location is rare so find a lot of land that is special to you. How does it match up to your wish list? Remember, you may not find a lot of land that suits everything on your wish list, but if you find one that suits most, you’re ahead of the game.

deposit money, loan application process, etc. If you want to buy the land now and build much later, are the lending guidelines different than if you’re going to build right away? Be educated about how you’re going to pay for the process.

We are about to begin our Toys for Tots Campaign for 2011. We thought it would be a good idea to give you a little background on this amazing programme, how it started and where we are going with it. Toys for Tots began in 1947, when Major Bill Hendricks, USCR and a group of Marine Reservists in Los Angeles collected and distributed 5,000 toys to needy children. The idea came from Bill’s wife Diane. In the fall of 1947, Diane crafted a homemade doll and asked Bill to deliver the doll to an organization which would give it to a needy child at Christmas. When Bill determined that no agency existed, Diane told Bill that he should start one. He did and that it where it all began. Since then many have become involved including Walt Disney who designed the logo and first poster and Nat “King” Cole, Peggy Lee and Vic Damone who recorded the Toys for Tots Theme. As Coldwell Banker is a franchised corporation, each office is independently owned and operated. Toys for Tots has been supported by hundreds of Coldwell Banker offices across North America for many, many years. While Kim Webb was in Vermont one year at Christmas, she saw the banner flying from the Coldwell Banker office in Quechee, Vermont. It was a time when Bermuda was prospering and she wanted very much to do something to give back to Bermuda. On

approaching Coldwell Banker Bermuda Realty, they readily embraced the idea. Since then it has grown to be the number one toy collection drive at Christmas. Since the inception in 2001, when we were shooting to collect 250 toys the need has grown and last year we collected in excess of our goal of 500 toys. We were able to assist not only the Coalition for the Protection of Children who we work in conjunction with, but also many of the churches and other charitable organizations and the Hospital. We have many schools and companies that get involved and give their student and employees an opportunity to give back to the community. This year however, the recession has taken its toll on many more families in Bermuda. So, in addition to our Toy Drive, Coldwell Banker is planning a food drive to help supply the Food Bank that the Coalition for The Protection of Children offers. Many families in Bermuda now depend on the Food Bank for at least one main meal a day. Stay tunes, more on this to come. For more information on the Toys for Tots campaign or Food Bank drive, contact Kim Webb – kwebb@brcl.bm or Stephanie Robinson – srobinson@brcl.bm.

Professional Property Management Provides Long-Term Benefits for Prudent Property Owners By: Mark Orchard, MRICS, Mark Orchard Real Estate Ltd.

Mark Orchard

Everyone knows how expensive owning and operating property in Bermuda can be, and whether you are a member of a condominium management board or own a private home, the benefits of a hiring a competent property manager are many. Most of Bermuda’s largest commercial and residential developers consider property management a prudent investment and not an unnecessary expense. In fact, having a certified and experienced property professional can often save a building owner significant monies in operations and contract management.

Here’s some reasons why. Budgeting: A professional property manager will prepare an annual operating budget for the property and will provide you with monthly statements and reports on how the actual building expenses are performing against that budget. Developing a cash flow calendar is key to managing operating budgets, as expenses such as insurance and taxes are paid on an annual or semi-annual basis; painting might be once every few years; electricity, landscaping, pool cleaning and the like are paid every month and of course there needs to be cash set aside for future capital expenses such as the replacement of air-conditioning systems or appliances. And as older commercial and newer condominium buildings struggle with increasing vacancy rates, accurate expense management is one of the keys to financial success. A proactive property manager will require written contracts from all the major vendors and will regularly re-bid those contracts to ensure that you are getting the value from these service providers that you require. Operating benchmarks will be clearly defined and vendors will be held accountable for their commitments. Communication: The property manager is the go-between the owner and tenants or the service providers themselves. Too often the property owner is

8 w Island Property News • October 2011

in the dark about what is going on with regards the resolution of propertyrelated matters. As your advocate, a professional manager will ensure that there is a steady communication between you and the service providers and ensure that all instructions and answers are complete and professional. Homeowners who may be traveling, or live overseas, may not see their home for some time, yet they want to know what is going on, particularly if a hurricane is approaching the island or there is maintenance underway. Regular proactive dialogue is the key to success in any important relationship. Certified: There are an increasing number of small firms offering property management services and some of these lack the professional training and experience to deliver the world class expertise that a sophisticated property will require. When hiring a manager, make sure that the company or individual is properly certified. There are a number of certifications that are considered the best in the business, including those from the UK-based Royal Institution of a Chartered Surveyors or the US-based Institute of Real Estate Management. Relationships: Knowing who to contact when there is a problem to be resolved and more importantly, having that service provider respond in a timely manner, is the key to solving problems in a cost effective manner. Anyone can use the Yellow Pages of course, but a property manager with a deep network of trusted contacts and vendors who deliver when they say they are going to, is the key to having a problem resolved with minimal disruption. After all, time is money. Trust: At the end of the day it all comes down to trust. You want to work with someone who you trust will act in your best interests and who, as your advocate, will represent your concerns as if you were doing it yourself. Someone you trust with the keys to your home. Someone you trust with your check book. Someone you trust with your families most valuable asset. Working with a professional property manger will save you money over time and ease the burdens of property ownership. In fact, a professional property manager might even help you sleep better at night!
