The 60-story tower features 132 units, a spa, ballroom, movie theater and a unique drive-in car elevator. Sources say more than 20 billionaires have already bought in and only a few units remain, including a $32 million, four-level penthouse with two private pools and an exclusive four-car “sky garage.” Read more at oceanhomemag.com/ porsche-design-tower-opens/.

Congratulations to renowned architect Peter Pennoyer, not only for being named one of Ocean Home’s Top 50 Coastal Architects for the second year running (page 74), but also on the launch of his fabulous new book, A House in the Country.

What have you photographed this issue? A spectacular home in Watch Hill, R.I., by leading architects Ike Kligerman Barkley (page 84).

What have you written about this issue? A stunning new penthouse, set on the top floor of Seven South at The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman (page 58).

What do you love most about the design? It’s acute sense of place, exquisite interior woodwork and daring rendition of a Shingle-style home.

What do you love most about the penthouse? It’s sheer size – I love the fact that it’s large enough to invite eight friends on vacation with everything taken care of.

My perfect ocean home would be… …half-timber with a thatched roof, close to a fishing harbor, a bookstore, hardware store and baker.

My dream vacation escape would be… Ariara, a private island paradise in the Philippines: it’s the ultimate in seclusion and blissful relaxation.

VILLA VENETIAN’S POOL OF TALENT Miami is home to some of America’s most exciting residential architecture, but few designs fire the imagination quite like Villa Venetian. Perched on the exclusive Venetian Islands, this 7,961-square-foot family home is a contemporary masterwork by Choeff Levy Fischman, an award-winning, Miami-based architecture and design firm specializing in high-end custom residences and hotels. The new home features seven bedrooms, nine baths, a theater, wine bar, outdoor dining area and a rare rooftop infinity pool with spectacular views of the city skyline and Biscayne Bay. Choeff Levy Fischman fittingly joins the ranks of Ocean Home’s Top 50 Architects of 2016 (page 74) and is profiled more fully for Casa Clara, another of its stunning Miami designs (page 76). Both homes, we’re certain, could host the best pool parties in Miami. clfarchitects.com - ANDREA COLLINS October + November 2016 | O C E A N H O M E M A G . C O M

“It’s always a thrill to have carte blanche to design an ocean home anywhere in the world, and the landscape and water views of Hawaii are wonderful inspiration. This living room was designed for families to gather, relax and entertain; it’s glamorous yet very comfortable at the same time. We wanted lots of seating with good conversation areas – functional but super chic. The ocean and gardens are the ideal backdrop, and a glass wall that opens to an outdoor patio is the bonus.” Barclay Butera CEO of Barclay Butera Interiors barclaybutera.com

all is almost upon us, and it’s not just the leaves that are turning. Thoughts are also turning, from summer soirées, pool parties and beach barbecues to cozy celebrations and Thanksgiving feasts. Looking for ways to spice up your fall fêtes? Here are ten easy and heart-warming tips from Carla McDonald, founder of The Salonnière – a popular website dedicated exclusively to the art of entertaining. CHOOSE A STELLAR DATE Everyone loves an autumn moon, so hold your party on or around an evening when the moon is full and bright. Full moon dates this fall are September 16 and October 16. If it’s not too cool, serve cocktails and dinner outside, and drape throws in seasonal colors over the backs of chairs for those who get chilly. MIX UP A FESTIVE COCKTAIL Welcome your guests with a drink that puts them in the mood for the cool, crisp days and nights of autumn. Try a delicious Spiced Pear Collins, comprising gin, pear purée and rosemary. ADD SEASONAL TOUCHES Serve light bites on leaf-shaped platters and choose linens in autumnal shades like gold, rust and pumpkin. BE INSPIRED BY THE BEACH Decorate your dining table with pieces of driftwood, sea shells and colorful fall leaves. PREPARE A SEASONAL FEAST Serve warm, earthy nibbles made with squash, pears, fennel, figs, apples and other fall flavors. Butternut squash soup served in shot glasses and garnished with sage is a classic autumnal touch that looks beautiful passed on trays.

CAPE COD

I

n spite of all the talent and visionary skills that a residential architect brings to a new project, sometimes the most important tool in his or her arsenal is the ability to listen. Renowned Bostonbased architect Patrick Ahearn, FAIA, was reminded of this in 2011 when he met with a client at her Cape Cod home in West Hyannis Port, Mass. The 7,410-square-foot oceanfront residence, initially built as a summer cottage in the 1920s, had seen its fair share of expansion efforts over the years. But nine decades on, the home was not only disjointed in its layout and design, it was also slowly crumbling into the sand. What it needed was a comprehensive renovation. As the client interviewed architects for the job, she heard the same advice numerous times: tear down the home and build a completely new one in its place. That would likely have been the easiest solution, but the client had lived there with her husband, children and grandchildren for decades, and the house was more than a home; it was a collection of family memories. “Part of my job as an architect is to be the good listener,” says Ahearn, a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects and one of Ocean Home’s Top 50 Coastal Architects of 2016. “I could feel the angst and the melancholy in the woman’s voice [as she talked about the prospect of tearing down her home].” Client and architect loved the home’s stone fireplaces,

one of which was set into an inglenook with built-in benches. Ahearn also liked the dueling staircases on either side of the great room; the overall look and feel of the home, which he described as Gatsby-esque; and the beach stones incorporated into the base of the exterior, which he immediately saw as a starting point for how he would reimagine the house. “Our aim was to get to the common goal of what the original architect was trying to do,” he says. “To be

respectful of the original idea and not introduce new ideas that might be viewed in conflict with the imagery of the house. “Although not the true story, it’s a story of what could have been – that this was a turn-of-the century, 1920s beachside cottage that grew over time. It’s not a true restoration at all. We’ve changed the house greatly, but in the spirit of what could have been. It’s more a sleight of hand.” Construction started in late 2011 when the entire house was raised and eventually lowered onto a new concrete foundation. But the significant enhancements began with the removal of a large tree that concealed most of the home’s previous front door and the construction of a new gabled main entrance accented by those eye-catching beach stones, as well as multilevel landscaping and architectural elements to guide visitors to the front entry. According to Ahearn, the litany of additions that had been made to the home over the years had rendered it a confusing mash-up of hallways and small rooms, which prevented it from being the comfortable multigenerational summer retreat that its owners desired. A prominent new front entrance, combined with French doors that open out from the great room onto a pergola and an outdoor patio at the back of the house opposite the front door, provides a better flow to the

interior layout and connects the house to its waterfront setting via panoramic vistas of the Atlantic Ocean. “When you opened the front door before, you couldn’t even see the water,” says Ahearn. “Now you look through the great room, through the French doors and pergola and out to the ocean. The house now has a new spine and a new focus.” The home also features a completely redesigned second floor, which includes a large master suite with his-and-hers bathrooms, walk-in closets, dressing rooms and a study that takes up the entire left wing of the home and can be accessed via a private staircase. The rest of the second floor is made up of additional bedrooms for the owners’ children with adjacent rooms for the grandchildren. Zoning limitations prevented Ahearn from moving the house any closer to the water, so he focused on utilizing most of the original footprint. In the end, the revised interiors created more than 1,700 square feet of additional living space, all of which was possible without increasing the height of the home, something Ahearn purposefully avoided. “In New England, we have a strong history of coastal architecture that is romantic in nature and human in scale,” he explains, “and as we develop or renovate old buildings, it’s important that they maintain their intrinsic value in terms of that architecture and scale. 34

O C E A N H O M E M A G . C O M | October + November 2016

“If you choose to live in a seaside village, you have an obligation to be sensitive to how your property will be viewed in the context of the whole streetscape and – where possible and appropriate – to maintain public views to the water.” Ahearn incorporated the ocean-side motif in subtle ways throughout the house. In many of the informal rooms, the walls are clad with bead board, which Ahearn says ties into a New England coastal vernacular. “It gives you a sense of texture and warmth throughout the house,” he explains. In the bar area, a teak-and-holly bar top competes for attention with a custom backsplash of navigational charts of Nantucket Sound. And in the great room, custom ceiling beams were designed to draw attention from the formal entrance to the outdoor living areas and the Atlantic beyond. “Architecture shouldn’t compete with a spectacular view,” Ahearn says. “It is only enhanced by it.” THE DETAILS In another masterstroke, For more information, Ahearn added oversized visit patrickahearn.com. windows along the back of the home that help bring in additional natural light and create unobstructed views of the ocean. “A house benefiting from beautiful views of the water,” he says, “creates its own magic and light.”

ilmmaker and screenwriter Alejandro Landes, whose work has debuted at both Sundance and Cannes Film Festivals, has developed a finely tuned appreciation for drama. “The type of film I’m interested in has relationships – it takes you through a series of evocative experiences that, as a whole, create a transformation,” he says. Now he’s applied that cinematic narrative to architecture in a scene-stealing home he calls Casa Bahia, in Miami, Fla. The 20,000-square-foot residence – overlooking Biscayne Bay from Coconut Grove – is his first design project. Spare and minimal, with an exposed exoskeleton wrapped in teak, glass and stucco, the home could be likened to a Hollywood tour de force. “A friend said this house is more like a shot list than a floor plan,” he says. Just as he might assemble a movie crew for a film, Landes gathered up a handpicked team of architects, builders, interior designers and landscape architects, and for two years they worked mightily to interpret his vision. Among them were Bernard Zyscovich, who provided the schematic design; the architect of record Jerry

Gavcovich; and renowned landscaper Raymond Jungles, one of Ocean Home’s Top Coastal Landscape Architects of 2016. Landes’ mother, Catalina Echavarria, an awardwinning furniture and interior designer who has worked with Donna Karan and Cher, created all of the home’s bespoke and handcrafted interiors. Landes says the construction process also recalled similarities between filmmaking and architecture. “It’s kind of like being on the set with a cinematographer who’s studied philosophy and a cameraman with no high school diploma,” he says. 38

“We had a structural engineer in an office a long way away working with someone pouring concrete who had no degree, but they were both working together.” The filmmaker was intent on exploring the tension of using loadbearing materials – stone, wood and concrete – in ways that make them seem light. In essence, he directed them to provide a framework for open spaces, inside and out. “I was trying to play with these polar opposites and create a handmade home,” he says. “I wasn’t trying to push any formal ideas, but rather something very honest in the materials of the structure.” The best architecture, he says, is site specific and this site presented one doozy of a challenge. It’s basically a peninsula with a cul de sac that creates a bottleneck, yielding a footprint that looks much like an hourglass. But it does offer 500 linear feet fronting Biscayne Bay, and that’s one asset that Landes and his design team used to full advantage. “There are seven bedrooms and eight and a half baths,” he says, “and almost every bath is on the water.” 40

The home is open on its lower level, with a number of balconies that provide shade during the day and constant cross ventilation, effectively eliminating the need for 24/7 air conditioning. Southeasterly breezes, cooled by the waters of Biscayne Bay, flow through the home’s open floor plan, which showcases panoramic views to a sailboat harbor in the distance. And its design deliberately blurs any strict lines between inside and out. “You can open up the skin of 42

the building and enjoy it all,” he says. “The balconies stretch out on nine-foot-wide cantilevers, so most of the time there are great shadows and it’s pleasant to be outside because of the breezes.” Most of the home’s glazing is on the east and north sides, with a corner scenario for the bay. That contrasts sharply with the south and west façades, opaque because of the intensity of the sun and a Florida energy code that’s becoming increasingly strict. Inside, Landes created a waterfall with a backdrop of charcoal-colored Spanish slate, first laying out the pieces on the floor to define a pattern, then numbering each slab before mounting them on a wall. “The water trickles down them unevenly,” he says. “It gives you sound and an element for a cinematic experience, so it’s not just what you see but what you hear too.” Eschewing paint for interior walls, he opted instead to work with a painter experienced in applying a microplaster – a lime-based wall treatment. Elsewhere, his material palette is almost palpable. By design, it deliberately encourages people to reach out and touch. “What’s great about it all is that it’s a work of art. I want you to touch the oxygen holes in the exposed concrete,” adds Landes. “The steel is porous and the teak is unvarnished.” For a first-time architect, Landes boldly succeeds at THE DETAILS creating dramatic emotional For more information, responses from nearly every visit oceanhomemag.com/ casa-bahia. scene and space – despite his lack of design experience. “I don’t know what I’m doing,” he admits, “but I’m having a fabulous time doing it.” Alas, there are no Oscars for architecture, but Casa Bahia is sure to win its share of design awards.

f ever there was an ocean home that has tamed the rugged California coast, surely this is it. Unlike the water from the arroyo that once tumbled down its hillside site, this 9,000-square-foot residence on Emerald Bay – located at the northern end of exclusive Laguna Beach – now cascades gracefully from street side to beachfront. The home is five stories tall – one floor below grade, one above street level and three in between – and has been designed to create a feeling of permanence. Crafted from poured-in-place concrete, with splitface Nevada Gold limestone walls, rich mahogany for windows and doors, reclaimed Italian roof tile and bronze and copper for gutters and fenestration, this delightful home is here to stay. “First and foremost, we wanted to create something timeless – a multi-generational home that, if a great tsunami ever hit, would be the only home still standing,” says Grant Kirkpatrick, partner at KAA Design based in Los Angeles, and one of Ocean Home’s Top 50 Coastal Architects of 2016. KAA won the commission in a competition that engaged three architectural firms across California. “We did a preliminary design – we don’t usually do design competitions – but the clients were willing to pay the three firms for the initial work,” he says.

The firm is known for its custom residential architecture set in lush landscapes, and Kirkpatrick has been in business since 1988, two years after he graduated from USC’s School of Architecture. “We approach design in a unique way; we tell a story up front,” he says. “We helped formulate a story of the clients’ lifestyle on that property, and we developed some unique answers for them.” The story at this Emerald Bay residence was all about the clients and their extended family. They had grown up nearby, spending time at this spectacular oceanfront enclave, and had many happy memories. “They wanted to continue that legacy with their kids and grandkids,” says Kirkpatrick. Over the years, he and his firm have learned that collaboration and trust are key to their ongoing success. “Some of our best clients lay out the vision of what they want, but leave it up to us to fulfill that vision,” he says. “Here, they were gracious with that trust in us.” At Emerald Bay, Kirkpatrick and KAA principal Duan Tran were tasked with inserting the home into an unusual trapezoid-shaped corner lot, with a boomerang curve at street level. The clients also wanted an indoor/ outdoor environment that took full advantage of the dramatic coastal location. The architects responded by delivering on that vision in spades. The home is set on one of just 14 lots on Emerald 48

Bay, a sheltered cove of magical, teal-tinted water. KAA inherited a design theme – called Cal/Mex/Med – from the clients and interior designers and set about exploring its boundaries. “We kind of chuckled, but it turned out to have some substance to it,” he says. Kirkpatrick and Tran interpreted that theme, working it into a classic California fusion of interior and exterior spaces with the influence of newer artisan resorts in Mexico’s Los Cabos, as well as the clients’ love of Mediterranean islands like Corsica.

The owners and architects agreed the home should have an open and airy indoor/outdoor floor plan, ensuring views of the beach and Pacific Ocean from every space.

Boatbuilder Bob Johnstone named his MJM collection of motorboats after his wife Mary Jane; the racy and highly fuel-efficient 50z is perfect for relaxed sunset cruises.

“There’s a coastal seafaring trend, with light colors and fabrics and artifacts woven into the architecture,” he says. “You sort of feel it as a blending of the better coastal environments across the world.” KAA answered the clients’ desire for generations of family use with seven bedrooms, each opening up to sky, sun and sea. All indoor rooms are connected to the outdoors with pocket doors, some electronic. “You can get out of the bedrooms and go down to the beach without going through the house. The design is pragmatic, but also a way to articulate the architecture,” says Kirkpatrick. The home features a 28-foot-wide sliding door system that fully pockets into a wall, and an indoor/outdoor bar accompanied by a series of TV screens. The bar is covered in abalone shells, while chandeliers in the wine cellar are made of sand dollars and rolls of fencing wire are made of Corten steel oxidizing in the atmosphere. “The home is about enjoying the microclimate of THE DETAILS Emerald Bay,” Kirkpatrick adds.

Even its earliest antecedent – that steep-sided gully created by rushing water – held sway over the home’s design. “This property is still kin to that old arroyo,” says Kirkpatrick. “The hydrologist suggested reinforcing the foundation and retaining wall, so if the water ever kicks back in, it can be diverted.” Surely, this is an oceanfront home equipped to stand up to nature and the test of time.

Visionary architect Grant Kirkpatrick, top, and principal Duan Tran infused the interiors with colors, fabrics and textures inspired by California, Mexico and Mediterranean islands like Corsica.

artha’s Vineyard is a jewel that shines with natural beauty, history and culture – so much so, in fact, that its other fine attributes are often hidden behind the bright patina of a coveted summer community. Interior designer Lili Hart made her own special discovery when she undertook a recent project on the Massachusetts island: a treasure trove of talented and dedicated carpenters, woodworkers and tradesmen who help transform Vineyard homes into unique and beautiful gems. Working with island experts was one of the many pleasures Hart experienced when she created a new interior for a formerly humdrum Shingle-style gambrel, built in the 1990s and tucked away in a peaceful thicket of woods in Edgartown. “These Vineyard craftsmen really know their trades,” says Hart, principal of Liliane Hart Interiors based in Manhattan. “The woodworkers respect history and the past.” It was a perfect pairing for the husband-and-wife homeowners, who both grew up summering in rambling

old houses on the island. “They love the historical aspects – the wainscot, hand-painted floors, handblocked wallpaper,” Hart says. While the couple’s home has exquisite hand detailing, it has none of the musty darkness that’s typical of old New England summerhouses. Here, the mood is light, fresh and casual, with sun-filled rooms decorated in soft beige and white, and natural materials such as woven straw and wicker. “My clients had a fairly clear vision,” Hart explains. “They wanted to update a classic aesthetic in a minimalist kind of way.”

Light and easy

The owners of this gorgeous Martha’s Vineyard residence wanted the design to be soft and light, as well as beach-y and casual, using white and beige in most rooms except for the den (above).

Hart helped the couple hone their dreams for the new design and, in the process, created a reflection of the wife’s Scandinavian roots. The emphasis on sunny simplicity and ease is perfect for the family, which includes two school-age children. “They wanted it soft and light, beach-y and casual,” Hart says. Sun pours in through generous windows on the home’s ocean side, spilling over light wood floors and furniture of bleached oak and driftwood, with touches of color inspired by nature. Furniture is largely minimal and sculptural. “We let the coastal view play the starring role,” Hart says. The house is the third project Hart has completed for the homeowners. “These are dream clients,” she says. “They love design.” Through the highly collaborative process, Hart and the owners demonstrated that a soft and serene interior can carry spectacular weight. Conover Restorations, a long-time Edgartown business, updated the 4,600-square-foot family home. The living room serves as the main congregation area, with three pairs of French doors leading to the lawn and patio, while other glass-paned doors lead to the den and guestroom. “One of the first things we did in the living room was 54

to lighten the floor color to a softer, more casual light brown,” Hart says. The walls here, and throughout the first-floor public rooms, are White Heron by Benjamin Moore, with a cast that changes subtly through the day. Light-toned English furniture is complemented by upholstery in a de Le Cuona ticking fabric. A shell armoire, intricate yet simple, is the single item brought from the couple’s New York City loft apartment. Spiraling off one side of the living room are the dining area, kitchen and a screened porch outfitted in wicker for outdoor dining and relaxation. The first floor also includes a den in darkest blue, a fervent wish of the wife who works in entertainment and wanted a prime place to watch movies. The owners’ young son’s upstairs bedroom gave Hart a chance to accomplish a long-held wish: to create a burlap wall. The homeowners, she says, “loved it.” His parents’ bedroom, painted in a Farrow & Ball green, has a sweet nook, a seating area with a chaise next to a wall of windows delivering an inspiring view across the patio to a saltwater pond and the ocean beyond. The pool and guest cottage are tucked nearby in a quiet part of the property. Artisanal touches give the interior a unique identity. In the first-floor powder room, hand-blocked wallpaper

Liliane Hart Interiors is housed in the beautiful Townsend Building overlooking New York City’s Madison Square Park. Working in a landmark building is an integral part of Hart’s backstory; for her, design is a lifelong passion, instilled by parents who love to restore and decorate old houses. After obtaining a fine arts degree, a stint at the New York School of Interior Design and a historic renovation of her own, Hart went on to a position and mentorship with esteemed designer Jeffrey Bilhuber.

“We imagined our new penthouse to act as the most luxurious ‘home away from home.’ ” The services and amenities – including a butler, maid service, chef, fully stocked wine cellar and access to the award-winning resort’s world-class dining, leisure and entertainment options – know no bounds. In designing this upscale contemporary residence with a sense of approachability, Atlanta’s The Johnson Studio drew inspiration from the island’s crystal blue waters and sparkling sands as well as its illustrious yachting history. The surrounding turquoise, aquamarine and teal waters are the backdrop to this heavenly escape. Lead interior designer Anna McGrady envisioned an authentic island feel through a soft color palette of deep blues and greens. “A mix of natural materials, including Bolivian rosewood, figured sycamore and afrormosia, helps to create a textured, layered look within the interior and soften the contemporary aesthetic,” McGrady says. She also hand selected Gascogne Blue limestone and Azul Macauba and Cipollino Cremo Tirreno marble to echo the natural beauty of the island. McGrady softened the living spaces by incorporating a series of ellipses into the interior design, including an elliptical ceiling and table in the dining area. “The floor plan is open, yet we created distinct seating spaces in the living room,” she adds. Fabrics and furniture throughout the penthouse include embossed shagreen leathers, sea fan-inspired hand-knotted silk and wool rugs and rich linens, silks and velvets in sand and ocean colors. “Seating areas offer pops of deep blue/green velvet to create another layer of richness in the design,” says McGrady. The sleek modern kitchen showcases the latest in appliances. “It’s the ultimate catering kitchen,” she adds. Bedrooms offer built-in custom millwork, which take cues from furniture found on a luxury yacht. The headboards are upholstered in leather, and the two master bedrooms offer commanding sea views. LaCantina accordion glass walls open to the outdoor spaces, which are just as luxurious as the interiors.

Coastal modern

Atelier Newport is taking a fresh and engaging approach to modern coastal art, showcasing an array of works by some of America’s best contemporary artists and sculptors.

Owned by Lee Valentini, an insurance industry expert and avid art collector, Atelier Newport showcases an array of contemporary (and some traditional) works by noteworthy artists such as Bunny Harvey, Robert Bolster, Richard Nocera and Hannah Stahl, among others. “I have a few traditional paintings, but nothing like you’d normally see in coastal galleries,” says Lemmons. “The abstract work is selling well and clients are responding. It’s wonderful for a curator and artistic director like me coming from the contemporary art world.” Lemmons started doing private yacht collections for clients in 2003 – a venture that really set sail in 2012 after she was commissioned to re-design the yacht marina in Newport, creating a collection of teak furniture with colorful Trina Turk fabrics. “The marina opened a huge door for me to new collectors, yacht owners who are incredibly relaxed, passionate and willing to let me take risks and change things up. The whole yacht art aesthetic is changing and it’s really fun to be involved,” she adds. THE DETAILS For now, Lemmons is fully For more information, visit focused on Atelier Newport ateliernewport.com. and helping her clients find the perfect artwork. “Collecting art should be a journey,” she says. “I always want a collector to have passion and fall in love with a painting.”

hink of coastal or maritime art and canvases splashed with sailboats, lighthouses and the wild and romantic New England shoreline spring to mind. But an exciting new gallery in Newport, Rhode Island, is turning tradition on its head, offering a fresh take on contemporary art that fits perfectly into a stylish coastal home or luxury yacht setting. Atelier Newport, which opened in July on Bellevue Avenue, just two doors from the landmark International Tennis Hall of Fame, offers an eclectic portfolio of works by 30 established and emerging artists for people who love and appreciate art. “I’m trying to see this collection in Newport in a different way,” says Creative Director Bobbie Lemmons, who has owned galleries in New York City for several years and curated numerous collections for corporate and private clients and yacht owners. “There are coastal galleries from here to Maine that are dumbing down the collectors who are actually coming here,” she adds. “These are very sophisticated collectors, and yes, they get caught up in the whole romantic mood and experience of New England, but it doesn’t mean they have to have paintings of lighthouses and sailboats in their collections.”

sk local realtor Kevin Mackin what he loves about Palm Island and his answer is simple. “It’s a family-oriented destination with a true old Florida neighborhood feel,” he says. “First-time visitors to the island are surprised this type of lifestyle still exists in the United States, and tell me they thought they’d have to go to the Caribbean to find a similar way of life.” Located off Florida’s sun-splashed Gulf Coast, between Manasota Key and Gasparilla Island (better known as Boca Grande), charming Palm Island is approximately seven miles long. Accessible only by boat – or daily car ferry – the barrier island features fine white-sand beaches, spectacular Southwest Florida sunsets and a host of activities from beachcombing to boating, fishing, diving and sailing. “Even though the ferry ride is only about three minutes long, you feel like you’ve arrived at a unique destination,” says Mackin. Cars are permitted, but many people move leisurely around the island in golf carts, and sand roads are in keeping with the tropical theme. Palm Island (also known locally as Don Pedro Island) isn’t only for family vacations. According to Mackin, it’s a solid long-term real estate investment. Architecture styles pay homage to Key West and Grand Cayman – Palm Island is zoned single-family residential and non-commercial – and homes are 64

KOHANAIKI

An Evolution of the Private Club Experience On the sunny Kona Coast of the Big Island of Hawai`i lies Kohanaiki, a private residential club community that is setting a new standard for island luxury. Located just five miles from the town of Kailua-Kona and two miles from Kona International Airport, Kohanaiki offers 450 acres of pristine oceanfront living. Its 1.5 miles of spectacular coastline comprises some of the best surf breaks, fishing and diving anywhere. A Rees Jones golf course, featuring six spectacular oceanfront holes, meanders through ancient lava flows and natural anchialine ponds. The crystalline waters are your backyard, offering a year- round island experience for all ages. Kohanaiki is the first new development of its kind on Hawai`i’s Big Island in more than a decade; it represents an evolution of the private club experience, instilling a wel-

coming, relaxed and comfortable lifestyle that is reflected in the warm and graceful attentiveness of the staff and the sense of genuine community among members. “There hasn’t been a new development of this scale on the Kona coast in years,” says Joe Root, President & CEO. “We believed there was an opportunity to create a new private residential community that meets the needs of today’s buyer in terms of service, amenities, and quality of homes, while staying true to the authenticity of this place. The result is something truly unique in Hawai’i.” This philosophy of authenticity is evident in Kohanaiki’s commitment to cultural preservation and environmental restoration. Kohanaiki is situated on land that has been inhabited for many generations and the team here embraces their role as stewards of this land, diligently

and expertly replanting and maintaining indigenous vegetation, protecting cultural sites, conserving natural resources, and strictly adhering to eco-sensitive building practices. Thanks to careful preservation and restoration of historic sites, members can get a true sense of what life was like for Hawaiian villagers in the 19th century. Amenities include a Rees Jones-designed golf course, beach club and restaurant, sports complex, full-service ocean adventure team, Tracy Lee-designed spa, and a spectacular 67,000-square-foot Clubhouse opening later this year. A world-class food and beverage program featuring the freshest and most in-season ingredients available and a wine list showcasing premium wines not typically available in Hawai`i rounds out the exceptional service offerings at Kohanaiki. “From a development perspective,

our goal was to build homes that blend modern design & luxury with an authentic casual Hawaiian beach home experience,” says Scott Bedingfield, VP of Development. “The homes here need to take cues from traditional Hawaiian architecture, integrate with the natural landscape, and be of the absolute highest quality of construction.” The development team at Kohanaiki has brought together some of the West Coast’s and Hawai`i’s most renowned architects to help realize their vision for Kohanaiki. San Francisco based Zak Architecture was one of the first firms involved at Kohanaiki and has lent its expertise in the design of a number of custom single-family homes and the new Kohanaiki Clubhouse, quite possibly the largest private club facility in the United States. Warren Sunnland-designed Hale Mai’a and Hinahina Residences offer a modern

take on the traditional kama’aina beach house, with a refined yet relaxed atmosphere. These two-story paired homes offer spacious interior living spaces and expansive outdoor lānai for entertaining and taking in the famous Kona sunsets. Jim McLaughlin, one of Sun Valley’s most notable names, has also brought his talents to Kohanaiki with a modern single-family home design that highlights informal living and entertaining with today’s modern amenities. The newest offering at Kohanaiki, Hale ‘Alani, has been designed by San Francisco architect Khoi Le of Glazier-Le Architects. These single-level detached and semi-attached homes were inspired by the
natural beauty of the Hawaiian Islands, and showcase spacious interiors that blend seamlessly with expansive outdoor lānai and private yards.

Kohanaiki offers single-family homes and custom estate lots priced from $3 million to $25 million. The Kohanaiki Club is an invitation-only private club offering owners and members exclusive access to the best in class amenities and experience at Kohanaiki.

AN E X OTIC CAR I B B E AN IS LAN D A resort community in booming Panama Panama City’s skyline has transformed itself in the past decade. Lined with new financial and condo towers and upscale hotels that reminds you more of Singapore or Miami than a Latin American hub…Panama is becoming the new economic dynamo of the Western Hemisphere. Much of the boom has been due to tremendous investment in the country from both multinational companies and private investment. Thanks to the country’s political stability, dollarized economy, lower cost of living, retirement and real estate tax incentives and developed healthcare and financial industries, the GDP will once again be over over 6% this year (compared to U.S. at 1-2%). It also happened to rank as the #1 happiest place on earth according to a recent Gallup poll. But Panama is not a common reference point for the allure of Caribbean islands such as Turks and Caicos, St. Thomas, St. Lucia or Antigua. But investors in these traditional Caribbean destinations should consider the less known islands of Bocas del Toro, Panama. The favorite stopping point of Colombus, as he named the islands after himself, and touted by international publications, these

hidden beaches here are framed by majestic tropical forest frequented by capuchin monkeys and sea turtles. Plus, it is only thirty miles from the border of Costa Rica. Savvy sailors and Mega Yacht owners have known about this destination for years. Because these islands lie beneath the Caribbean’s hurricane belt, they are a natural stop over for those transiting the Panama Canal. Owners and crews alike enjoy the resort amenities and vibrant nightlife. The island archipelago of Bocas del Toro is part of the Caribbean and it has the added benefit of being part of that economic dynamo that is the country of Panama. The Red Frog Beach Island Community lies adjacent to the Bastimentos National Marine park (with its protected rainforest and coral reefs). It is a place where people travel by boat around unique ecosystems. What makes the resort setting so extraordinary is its proximity to natural amenities; from untouched coral reefs to acres of botanical gardens and mangrove ecosystems with towering mountain ranges seen in the distance. Bocas del Toro is truly a nature lover’s dream that feels undiscovered and unexplored. Bocas del Toro has an unpretentious charm that is hard to describe and replicate elsewhere in the world. Whether you are a Mega Yacht owner or a surfer, the community has a hip vibe that is both trendy and inviting. While others may strive for the artificial country club on the sand – Red Frog Beach Island Resort in Bocas del Toro embraces the adage, “designed by nature.” Ride a spectacular 9 cable zipline through the treetops at the top of the island, visit new organic gardens or get a massage in a natural bohio spa built over a natural spring in a hidden valley. There is also abundant nightlife just 10 minutes away along Bocas town’s

water front. With the booming economy of Panama to support your investment, the combination of beaches, nature and nightlife is hard to find. Available properties include island villas, condos, lots and Residence Club units. These properties are spaciously tucked among 1,500 acres into a stunning hillside that looks out over gorgeous tropical keys. The Villas include private pools, upscale finishes and Caribbean chic décor with a tropical flare. One can build an upscale home on the beach for under $1M (compared to what you may spend elsewhere in the Caribbean it is a fraction of the price.) The Red Frog Beach Island Resort & Spa can currently accommodate vacationers and prospective buyers in beautiful homes with private pools and the resort offers turnkey property management to generate rental income when the owner is not present. The Red Frog Beach Resort is currently offering private and semi-private monthly “Exploration Tours” that includes a 4 night/5 day package. The tour is all-inclusive and will give you a taste of living in a luxury villa. Villas accommodate 2-6 guests so it is possible to travel with other interested parties. Bring some friends or relatives and create a family vacation out of the experience.

Making an entrance

This stunning new home on Miami’s Venetian Islands is a masterwork of Tropical Modern architecture, but the real drama begins inside and out on the fabulous pool deck overlooking Biscayne Bay.

RENOWNED ARCHITECTS CHOEFF LEVY FISCHMAN CREATE A STUNNING CONTEMPORARY HOME ON THE VENETIAN ISLANDS IN MIAMI – WITH AN EQUALLY SPECTACULAR LISTING PRICE words by J. Michael Welton | photographs by Paul Stoppi

“There are ten homes here selling for upwards of $25 million, and this one is getting multiple offers,” says owner and developer Ahmad Khamsi. “There’s an annual sell rate of just two homes a year because there are very few people who have $25 million.” Apparently, those who do are giving strong consideration to the property that Khamsi calls Dilido 212 – also known widely as Casa Clara – which is currently listed by Julian Johnston of Calibre International Realty for a cool $32 million. That’s because it’s perched on an exclusive and highly coveted double lot with a southwest orientation that

yields stunning views of Biscayne Bay and downtown Miami across 120 feet of shimmering waterfront. The home features 11,500 square feet of luxury living space on two levels, with seven bedrooms, nine baths, two powder rooms and three kitchens – two inside and one out. It’s also packed with designer names, such as Boffi (the baths and kitchens), Kreon (the architectural lighting) and custom furniture by Henge. Not to mention elegant interior design by Charlotte Dunagan Design Group and eye-popping contemporary architecture by Ruben Gomez and Ralph Choeff, founder and principal of award-winning Choeff

The star attraction Architect Ralph Choeff has designed for major personalities like Cher, Matt Damon and Alex Rodriguez, and brings his stellar design style to this contemporary waterfront residence on West Dilido Drive.


Levy Fischman based in Miami. Their work is in a style that Choeff calls Tropical Modern – known for blurring the lines between inside and out and extremely popular across South Florida. “There isn’t an island or a street here that doesn’t have a Ralph Choeff home on it,” Khamsi says. Khamsi began interviewing architects three years ago, after envisioning the basic design for the house he wanted to build and then sell. Choeff is well known in Florida as the architect who has designed icons like the Mondrian South Beach Hotel and The Angler’s on Miami Beach, as well as homes for major celebrities such as Cher, Matt Damon and Alex Rodriguez. “He has no ego, and he was also open and inviting to our participation. We found him to be extremely patient and flexible,” says Khamsi. “He wanted his client to have the best home, and we are thrilled with his masterful interpretation of timeless and unique luxury.” Choeff is a native of Havana, Cuba, who migrated with his family to Miami at the age of six, and then moved to Brooklyn, N.Y., eventually graduating from Pratt Institute’s architecture program in 1978. Two weeks after graduation, he settled in Miami and went on to establish his own architectural firm in 1983. “I decided on a warm-weather climate,” Choeff says. “The decision was between Los Angeles and Miami, and I chose Miami.” Since then, he and partners Raphael Levy and Paul Fischman have not only watched Miami grow from a small town into a world-class center of international business and tourism, they’ve also influenced the look and feel of a great deal of that expansion. And they’ve done it in a style that draws on Bauhaus roots, with influences from modernists like Mies van der Rohe, Richard Neutra, Richard Meier, Gwathmey Siegel, Le Corbusier and Arquitectonica. “Most people understand midcentury modern architecture, and this is Florida’s version of it,” Choeff says of Dilido 212. “We used materials that are common to this region – ipe wood that’s termite- and decayresistant, porcelain stone and natural concrete – with a floor that’s limestone and wood.” Ruben Gomez came to the project at the request of Khamsi. He’d left Choeff Levy Fischman two years before, after working with the award-winning firm for seven years. Gomez credits Richard Neutra for the inspiration of Dilido 212’s design. “Ralph and I have always loved Neutra,” he says. “He saw open and exposed spaces and connected them – it’s very important for the main feeling of the house.”

Three’s company

Khamsi’s concept for Choeff and Gomez was for a high-end private residence with the finest finishes, and he pushed them, he says, to create the most fascinating and interesting home they could. “He asked us to design a maximum square-foot-bycode home, and he was very specific about the number of bedrooms, the catering kitchen in addition to a regular kitchen, and the very large doors to blur the line between inside and out,” says Choeff. Then there was the garage. “He said the garage needed to be a car suite,” Gomez says. “So we came up with a four-car garage for a Rolls-Royce – nobody in South Florida has anything like that.” Khamsi, however, understood that the grand, sweeping vistas would be key to the success of the project, as would its cinematic approach. A visitor first entering the home sees a water feature

cascading into a reflecting pool that, when illuminated at night, gives the impression of sparkling fire. A massive pivoting door, the centerpiece of the main entry, opens to a hallway with cantilevered stairs. From there, the visual fireworks commence, big-time. “The first thing you see is the Biscayne Bay water view, and when the sliding glass doors are open, you feel like you’re entering the lobby of a hotel in the Caribbean,” Choeff says. “You’re inside, but feel like you’re outside.” With both the pivoting entrance and sliding glass doors open, there’s a water view at each end, a fountain out front and the bay to the southwest. Moreover, the architects designed the home for cross-ventilation, so all the doors can be open all summer long. The wind from across the bay cools the air temperature inside, creating a microclimate. “The effect is fantastic – it’s a slow but chill wind, and that’s a good thing,” says Gomez. “It’s very difficult to live in a house in Miami in the summer, so that’s very important.” The peak hours for intense South Florida summer sun and heat are between 4 P.M. and 7 P.M., so the crossventilation was balanced with extended overhangs for shade as well as the orientation of the views. “We shifted the home’s axis to provide the views,” adds Gomez. “The first floor is open – inside you’ll never see an enclosure – and the kitchen has three panels of windows with 32 feet of open space. The circulation is always open, and you’ll never get bored because of the views.” Those views are so accessible because of the shape of the 22,000-square-foot site. It’s much wider than it is deep, which is precisely the opposite of most Miami Beach lots that are long and narrow. “The interesting thing is that the owner originally wanted to build on the northernmost lot, but then purchased the southernmost lot,” Choeff says. “So instead of building two independent residences, he built one, and we advised him that it’s easier to sell one home than two.” It’s a prized lot indeed, Khamsi says, enhanced by one of Choeff’s best designs to date. “It’s not often that a client pushes him to a higher level of design,” Khamsi says. “We constructed his THE DETAILS dream house as well as ours. For more information, visit casaclaramiamibeach.com It’s the house he sends all his and clfarchitects.com. important clients to visit.” When Khamsi builds his next house, Choeff and company are certain to be involved. But first comes the closing on Dilido 212: a three-year labor of love that’s worth every cent of its asking price.

ONE OF OCEAN HOME’S TOP 50 COASTAL ARCHITECTS OF 2016, IKE KLIGERMAN BARKLEY DESIGNS A BEAUTIFUL RESIDENCE IN WATCH HILL, RHODE ISLAND words by Andrew Conway photographs by William Waldron

84


Shingle Shingle and and proud proud of of it it

Leading architect Thomas A. Kligerman translates the classic Shingle style into a modern masterpiece at this handsome family vacation home in Rhode Island.

85


Grand voyage Above, with its tall chimney and nose pointing toward the ocean, the home resembles a ship about to set sail. Opposite, the stylish interiors are deliberately soft and neutral to complement the spectacular water vistas.

86

of a great ocean home is measured by its sense of anticipation, this exceptional vacation retreat in the coastal enclave of Watch Hill, Rhode Island, succeeds on every level. A picturesque gravel driveway sets the scene, leading down a low-lying, rocky peninsula jutting out into the Atlantic Ocean like the prow of a ship. Seagulls whirl and squawk overhead; the air is tangy with sea spray; and a breeze carries the sound of water across the bay, a secluded cove and neighboring salt marsh. An open motor court welcomes family, guests and visitors alike, guiding them either to striking louvered cedar garage doors or a more formal front entrance reached via a wooden stairway. And towering above is a handsome threestory home, designed in the classic New England Shingle vernacular, but exuding a confident and commanding character that strikes the perfect balance between modernity and tradition. The seven-bedroom, five-bath residence is a masterwork by Thomas A. Kligerman, cofounder and principal of Ike Kligerman Barkley, one of Ocean Home’s Top 50 Coastal Architects of 2016. The storied and multi-award-winning firm, with offices in New York City and San Francisco, designs stellar homes across America and beyond, but this particular commission held a personal attraction for Kligerman. “Ever since I was 10 years old, I have spent summers just five miles down the road in the small ocean-side town of Weekapaug, set on a coastline dotted with simple shingled cottages,” he says. “I also sail traditional wooden boats, and my visceral attachment to the Shingle style is inherently braided with that summer activity. The link between the two is wood and paint; the aromas of each combine with the salt and air, and I wanted to capture that in this house.” The initial commission followed a chance meeting. “About 12 years ago, I took a cab to the airport and the driver said he had to pick up someone else along the way,” Kligerman recalls. “We stopped at a beautiful house, a man got in the cab and we had an hour chatting together. About six or seven years later, I received a letter: ‘Dear Tom, you may not remember me, but we met in a taxi and we’re thinking of designing a vacation home…’ ” Kligerman remembered instantly and, despite being in competition with other leading architects for the job, he submitted an impressive design concept that won him the commission. The clients originally requested a modern flat-roof house, but Kligerman felt an overly contemporary home might not be welcome in a community that prizes historic architecture, especially on such a prominent site. Together, architect and clients agreed on a concept that would embody both modernity and tradition.


87


Light fantastic

Triple-hung, floorto-ceiling windows allow light to flood into the great room on the second floor, and open to three separate porches for family dining and entertaining.

88

Early design challenges – including the original home’s footprint, which could not be altered, along with stringent FEMA flood zone regulations – informed Kligerman’s plan. “We had to stay within the fixed footprint, and the house had to be elevated 15 feet so if there is ever a hurricane, water can easily pass through it,” he says. The solution was to go up in height to three levels, with a garage and recreation and storage space on the first floor and living rooms and bedrooms on the second and third floors respectively. And rather than create a frame and add various architectural elements, with the potential to overstep the fixed footprint, Kligerman decided to start with a cube shape and cut into it. “Imagine a sculptor looking at a block of marble, and somewhere in there is a statue, and everything we could take away from that block is what the house would be. We were effectively working in the negative with this design,” he says. “As we cut away, the edges of the cube became the

edges of the building. We were really scooping and carving away to create the shape of the house,” he adds. Drawing further inspiration from the crisp geometry of origami – almost as if he had taken a sheet of paper and folded it into sharply articulated planes – Kligerman gave the house its unique character. “It proved especially effective up above where the elongated dormers and extended overhangs are recognizably traditional, yet enabled me to translate my client’s original desire for a flat roof into moments of horizontality,” he says. “The concept also freed me to eliminate all moldings, trim and ornament, resulting in pure volumes bordering in places on the abstract,” he adds. Kligerman “carved” into the flat gables on both ends of the building, shaping distinctive prism-like edges inside the triangular forms. He also gave the house a high roofline in proportion to a three-story building, even though only two of the floors are habitable. “When you drive into the motor court, the house


almost feels like it’s about to pull away, with its grand entry stair like a gangplank, its big smokestack chimney and a nose that’s gesturing toward the ocean,” says Kligerman. “It’s a sense of potential, rather than a sense of arrival, like a great adventure is about to begin,” he adds. If the home’s exterior is more classical in style, the interior design is all about contemporary living, infused with maritime-inspired details and décor to enhance the experience of being at the water’s edge. A Dutch door at the top of the entry stair opens to a light and airy entrance hall and a switchback staircase connecting all three levels of the home. Set against all-white walls and ceilings, the staircase is painted a boat-deck gray and designed with open planks rather than traditional balustrades, setting the tone for the breezy beach house vibe. The staircase opens on the second floor to an expansive great room, comprising open-plan kitchen, dining and living spaces, with a study and den and two guest bedrooms off to the side. Triple-hung, floor-to-ceiling windows allow natural light to flood into the great room on all three sides and deliver spectacular views of the salt marsh, bay and ocean beyond. The windows also open to three separate porches and decks, each designed to offer different outdoor entertaining and relaxation spaces depending on the time of day and weather conditions.

One porch is open to the elements, delivering full sun by day and star-filled skies at night; another has an overhang in the event of rain, while the third porch is screened, offering a practical all-weather environment. While Ike Kligerman Barkley has an interiors department, Kligerman enlisted leading Boston-based designer Heather Wells, who opted for soft and subtle colors, textures and fabrics to complement the everchanging hues of the surrounding seascape. Reclaimed oak plank floors, sanded and lightly bleached; a sisal rug; stone fireplace; and a color palette inspired by sand, dune, driftwood and beach

all add to the relaxed and casual coastal ambience. The adjoining den and study offer a major element of surprise, with high-gloss, black-green walls standing in sharp contrast to the stark whiteness of the great room. “The dark color offers a sense of intimacy, completely different to anything else in the house,” says Kligerman. “I also wanted it to look like the hull of a beautiful sloop, so it has a kind of nautical feel.” The third floor comprises the family accommodations: separate bedrooms for the three children – an en suite for the daughter, a shared bathroom for the two sons – and a bunkroom with its own bathroom. A long, narrow hallway with windows and shutters on each side leads to the owners’ suite, designed with three exposures facing east, south and west. The master bedroom points directly toward the ocean with a porch to enjoy the panoramic water views. Kligerman’s masterful touches are everywhere. All window sashes are painted black, providing a graphic element and allowing a sharper view of the ocean and coastline. The louvered cedar doors of the three-car garage are designed to resemble lattice, while the adjoining first-floor space acts as an indoor/outdoor recreation room with ping-pong and billiards tables as well as

covered storage for sailboats and surfboards. “And water can wash right through that space in the event of a storm,” says Kligerman. Architect and clients worked closely throughout the three-year project from 2011 to 2014. “We discussed every minutiae,” says Kligerman. “If everyone involved – architect, builder, interior designer and clients – are happy, that’s a successful project.” A graduate of Columbia University and Yale School of Architecture, Kligerman worked for the great Robert A.M. Stern before cofounding his own firm with college friend and fellow architect John Ike in 1989 (co-principal Joel Barkley joined 10 years later). “I owe a lot of what I do to Robert Stern,” says Kligerman. But it’s his lifelong passion for the ocean, not to mention his abiding love of Shingle style, which informs much of his design aesthetic and results in exceptional THE DETAILS For more information, coastal homes. visit ikekligermanbarkley.com. “The ocean is in my blood,” he says. “The air and light, the views, smells and sounds are unique, engaging every sense. The rhythm of the water is like being rocked in a cradle; it’s like a heartbeat, it’s so organic.”

BUILT BY WILLIAM AVERY ROCKEFELLER AS A GREAT CAMP IN THE ADIRONDACKS OF UPSTATE NEW YORK, THE POINT IS A LAKEFRONT HIDEAWAY LIKE NO OTHER words by Andrew Conway

92


On golden pond

As the sun sets over Lake Saranac and the boathouse of The Point, a magical Relais & Châteaux retreat in Upstate New York, guests prepare for another culinary feast in the Great Hall of this grand and historic lakefront hideaway.

93


on a frigid December morning, and I’m standing on a rocky outcrop overlooking the vast expanse of Upper Saranac Lake. An ethereal mist separates the mirrorstill water and cloudless sky, shrouding a dense forest of firs dusted with snow. I’m rugged up in my L.L. Bean parka, a woolly hat, gloves, scarf and boots, and warmed by a flask of steaming hot chocolate, thoughtfully delivered to my suite just before I headed out. I’m a long way from the ocean, yet surrounded by an expanse of water that stretches to the horizon. A lone hawk whirls overhead, searching for its first meal of the day, and the silence is deafening. It’s a far cry from last night’s festivities when 16 animated guests gathered for a special celebration

94


in the Great Hall of The Point – an exclusive 11-suite Relais & Châteaux retreat, tucked away in the vast wilderness of the Adirondacks in Upstate New York. In what can only be described as excellent timing for a Saturday night, the dinner coincided with a pre-Christmas Moët & Chandon Champagne tasting, which paired each of six gourmet courses with exceptional vintages. Saturday and Wednesday evenings at The Point are designated formal black-tie affairs, and our fellow guests duly donned tuxedos and cocktail dresses for this singular occasion. By the light of an enormous Christmas tree, we dined on caviar, squash agnolotti, poached Maine lobster, a Champagne (naturally) and pear sorbet, roasted pork loin and pumpkin pie soufflé, washed down with the best bubbles Moët could muster. As the Great Hall echoed with amusing banter and laughter for several hours through the evening, I couldn’t help but wonder what The Point’s original owner, William Avery Rockefeller, would have thought of his beloved lodge had he hosted the dinner. More than 80 years earlier, at the height of America’s Gilded Age, the legendary oil tycoon built The Point as a private vacation home deep in the sanctuary of the Great North Woods for his family and guests to escape the rapidly growing urban jungle of New York City. Designed in the style of a Great Camp, the magnificent log retreat served as a peaceful hideaway where Rockefeller could live quietly, indulge his love of outdoor pursuits and entertain his guests in royal yet rustic style. Fast-forward eight decades and The Point remains one of America’s most intimate and unique resorts, catering to a well-heeled clientele wanting the same experience as its former owner. Cast aside any notions of camping, even “glamping” – life at The Point offers an exceptional, all-inclusive wilderness adventure wrapped up in a cocoon of comfort, luxury, pampering, gourmet cuisine and fine wines in a monumental natural setting. The first sense of remote wilderness comes as our Cape Air flight from Boston descends through thick clouds and lands at Adirondack Regional Airport, enveloped in boundless acres of ancient forests. A 20-minute drive by 4WD luxury sedan leads to the gates of The Point, its name writ large in dark wood lettering over the driveway. The Rockefeller experience begins as you enter the door of the Main Lodge, with a steward standing by to offer a glass of Champagne and guide us through a delightful wood-paneled vestibule – called Reindeer Hall – into the Great Hall.

The room is a study in masculine femininity – its cathedral ceiling, solid timber beams, wood paneling and dueling stone fireplaces are softened by plush sofas, colorful cushions, antique rugs and artworks and a Christmas tree plump with decorations. A couple is having lunch before departing, chatting quietly in front of a crackling fire. The wife looks up and asks: “Just arrived?” We nod. “You’re going to love it; we don’t want to leave,” she says. But lunch can wait; it’s time to explore. While the entire estate covers 75 acres of wilderness, the lodge is nestled on a peninsula jutting out into Upper Saranac Lake and comprises a gatehouse and four individual log cottages set in romantic landscaped grounds. In addition to the Great Hall, the Main Lodge houses four of the 11 guest accommodations: Mohawk is the Rockefellers’ former master bedroom and a favorite

of guests; Algonquin is the original study, a cozy room lined with books; Iroquois and Morningside are equally inviting, each with views of the lake. The Guest House has three suites: paneled in fir, Saranac has an almost magical quality; Weatherwatch is one of The Point’s most luxurious rooms with large windows framing the lake; and the delightful Evensong was a favorite of Mrs. Rockefeller. Eagle’s Nest offers another three suites and a charming pub in what was the original stables and garage. Sentinel is a two-room retreat on the upper level; Trappers feels like a private cabin in the woods; and our suite above, called Lookout, delivers beautiful panoramas of the lake and forest. Every room has a well-equipped en suite bath, a log fireplace for lighting in cooler months, and is individually themed and decorated in classic rustic-chic fashion. The Point isn’t contemporary luxury, but rather harks back to a golden age of grand travel and style. The largest and most requested guest room is The Boathouse, an airy, open suite set above the boats and

water with an oversize en suite bath, wide deck and panoramic lake views. The ambience of The Point is akin to a weekend house party, where guests do their own thing during the day – as active or relaxed as you like – and then usually come together to dine. While meals are served most often in the Great Hall, an array of options, from barbecues to lunch on the terrace, island picnics, bar meals in the pub, or dining privately in your suite, are available. Cocktails and dinner are the highlight of each day with talented Executive Chef Loic Leperlier delivering first-rate cuisine and private cellar wines befitting of a Relais & Châteaux. Leperlier, who hails from Madagascar and has worked at some of the world’s best Michelin-star restaurants and five-star resorts, brings a masterful culinary flair to The Point with a farm-to-table mentality that’s perfect for the wilderness setting. There’s a certain formality to The Point – dinner attire is recommended during the week, black tie

on Wednesdays and Saturdays – but it merely adds to the retreat’s grand sense of occasion, not to mention its Rockefeller heritage. By day, it’s wilderness casual, with a host of outdoor activities that change with the seasons: breezy lake watersports in spring, summer and fall, along with fishing, tennis, badminton and golf; cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, ice-skating, curling, ice fishing and snow barbecues during winter. The boathouse is stuffed with crafts, from canoes and kayaks to a sleek 1933 replica Hacker-Craft, a handcrafted mahogany speedboat. Docked just outside, the Elco (Electric Glass Company), a delightful glassenclosed electric boat, offers summer cocktail cruises. Our favorite pastime was simply walking around the beautiful lakeside grounds, occasionally stopping at one of four casual outdoor bars and lean-tos scattered around the property for a quiet drink in the sun. Intriguingly, The Point welcomed new owners last summer: Pierre Lapeyre, cofounder of a private investment firm in New York City, and his wife, Laurie, who are long-time guests. “We first experienced The Point during an unforgettable Father’s Day weekend 24 years ago, and have been vacationing here with our family and friends ever since,” say the Lapeyres.

William Avery Rockefeller and his wife would, no doubt, be delighted.

You can fly or drive to The Point. Cape Air operates three return flights a day from Boston’s Logan International Airport to Saranac Lake year round. Guests are met and driven to The Point, only 20 minutes from the regional airport. capeair.com Another option is to fly with a major carrier to Burlington, Vt., or Albany, N.Y., and hire a car for the scenic two-anda-half-hour drive to the resort. By car, The Point is about five hours from New York City and Boston and about two hours from Montreal. All-inclusive rates start from $1,600 per room per night, based on double occupancy, with full use of the sports equipment and facilities, as well as all meals, afternoon tea and unlimited wines and spirits.

Q

WHY USE SKYE REALT Y ?

Skye Realty only represents high net worth clients and A-list buyers. Privacy and confidentiality remain a core value as we have helped numerous buyers remain anonymous throughout and after the transaction.

Q

A

WHY NOT USE THE SELLING OR LISTING AGENT TO BUY?

If you use the listing agent they do NOT represent you. You have no protection or rights. Skye Realty will never represent both Buyer and Seller. We specialize in Protecting the Buyer throughout the sale and transaction.

There are 3 types of transaction representation

Single Agent relationships are created when an agent agrees to act solely on the behalf of a client, be they a seller or a buyer. Skye Realty represents you, the Buyer, exclusively! A Transaction Broker represents neither party which means that the customer has given up their rights to the undivided loyalty of the agent and is not a client. This is not suggested when buying a luxury, coastal or high valued home. No Brokerage: The buyer will either have to employ a single agent from a different brokerage to represent him or the seller’s agent, by law, must have the buyer sign the No Brokerage Relationship disclosure. This leaves the buyer with no representation in the transaction.

Last Word A TOAST TO THE COAST

PHOTOGRAPH BY FERNANDO GUERRA FG+SG ARCHITECTURAL PHOTOGRAPHY

It’s a given that great coastal architecture enriches the mind, spirit and soul, but it can also feed the body in spectacular style. Portugal’s FCC Arquitectura took an unassuming lot in Madalena, on the island of Pico in the Azores, and turned it into Cella Bar, an award-winning contemporary restaurant and wine bar. Designed to offer several spaces and different vibes, the restaurant features a large stone patio, stone wall dining room, undulating wood slat bar and a rooftop terrace offering beautiful views of the coastline and Atlantic Ocean. With interiors by renowned designer Paulo Lobo, Cella Bar delivers a menu to match the location – think ocean-fresh ceviche, prosciutto and brie toast, grilled octopus salad, and the chocolate mousse is a treat. Architecture and design at their delicious best. fc-arquitectura.com - JULIA JOHNSON
