Virginia’s Eastern Shore Community Escape from the everyday to the coastal tranquility of the Eastern Shore of Virginia. It is unlike anywhere else on the East Coast and home of the famous 17 mile Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel where you can “follow the gulls” to drive across the sea to our community from the south. It’s a reminder of a landscape and coastal lifestyle from a bygone era, scenic unspoiled coastlines of farms, islands and bays, wildlife, waterfowl and abundant harvests from the sea. Today our rural way of life offers you an old-fashioned country lifestyle of tranquility, with affordable small town properties, historic homes and stunning waterfront land, rich in the history of our first settlers dating back to 1619 when they established the first English settlement along the shores of Old Plantation Creek near Cape Charles. The Eastern Shore is a 70 mile long peninsula that separates the Atlantic Ocean from the Chesapeake Bay, it averages only eight miles wide, so the open blue water is never far away, nor are some of the best fishing, boating and saltwater recreation opportunities in the mid Atlantic region. The Shore is an area boasting a colonial heritage and breathtaking natural surroundings that provide year round activities for any member of the family. We have many scenic inlets, bays and rivers providing access to the Atlantic Ocean or the Chesapeake Bay. It’s a relaxed, country pace of life, where small villages and towns are scattered across a scenic coastal landscape amidst farmland and forest. Just a short drive will bring you to metropolitan amenities including opera, theaters and museums, shopping and restaurants in Virginia Beach and Norfolk. We also have Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus golf courses and a world-class yachting center, as well as major medical facilities and local shopping right here in our community. Our location in the mid Atlantic provides a mild four season climate. We pride ourselves in our focus on conservation, protection of our fragile coastal areas and the quality of our waterways, where a small boat is all you need for inshore boating and the enjoyment of isolated, pristine barrier islands, with glistening white sand beaches. Large portions of our community have been designated by the United Nations as a Biosphere Reserve, a distinction given few places on the planet. We are surrounded by water, with the Atlantic Ocean on our East wrapping around into the Chesapeake Bay. We have two National Wildlife refuges, one at Chincoteague/Assateague and one at Cape Charles, along with Kiptopeke Beach State Park, several wildlife management areas and the Nature Conservancy’s Virginia Coast Reserve. We’ve protected our scenic coastal way of life for future generations of your family to enjoy with a modern approach to conservation and enlightened environmental stewardship.

Bay Head / Mantoloking Written by B. B. Smith

W

hen you’re one of the most sought after areas in a region famous for luxury on the grandest scale, it really doesn’t matter if your name might translate “frog ground.” Especially when it’s equally possible that your sobriquet, Mantoloking, could also mean “sandy place” or “land of beautiful sunsets.” The exclusive high end communities of Mantoloking and its sister city Bay Head are part of Jersey Shore’s “Gold Coast,” reigning over Barnegat Peninsula, which some call an island and others call a peninsula. Again, given the extravagant lifestyles of the rich and famous on this tiny strip of land, does it really matter? Katherine Hepburn and Richard Nixon both summered here, while Peter Kellogg, Roger King and John Wanamaker could be found in nearby Bay Head. One of the most sought-after residential destinations for those who can afford the very best, Barnegat Peninsula derived its name from a Dutch

American luxury estates

word meaning “Inlet of the Breakers,” referring to the turbulent waters of the rather treacherous (and magnificent) inlet that separates it from Long Beach Island. The 20-mile peninsula with its exclusive enclaves keeps a very low profile, letting the beautiful views and enviable amenities demanded by those who can afford the very best speak for themselves, explains Clayton & Clayton Realtors, Inc., the area’s oldest, premier real estate brokerage firm. If anything can draw the eye away from those captivating water views, it’s the array of Shingle-style seashore houses, many of which are now on the National Register of Historic Places. The use of shingles was, in part, a means of achieving a weathered look and to obtain this on new materials, some architects had the cedar dipped in buttermilk, dried and then installed, achieving an enviable grayish tinge. They also gave the illusion of a great enveloped, flowing horizontal space. A sense of history is everywhere, from the old Mantoloking Golf Course (1897) where golf was played with a red ball (easier to see on sand) to its expansion to a “Golf and Yacht Club,” then to the “Yacht Club,” home to ten Olympians. The famous crash of the German’s dirigible, The Hindenburg, happened at nearby Lakehurst Naval Air Station. Bay Head’s Ocean County Historical Museum notes activity in this area as far back as 1000 BC and recalls how the famous pirate Captain William Kidd worked these waters. About the time he was hanged for his picadillos, in the early 1700s, this area’s settlement was beginning in earnest and it became a major stomping grounds for the American Revolution and the War of 1812. These waters also helped set the standards for life-saving techniques when the U.S. Government, worried about Barnegat Shoal’s treacherous waters, began to build crude shelters along the beaches to help save shipwreck victims. Delegates from the Barnegat Shoal’s area demonstrated their techniques at the World’s Fair in New Orleans in the 1870s. The Barnegat Lighthouse at the northern end of Long Beach Island is the second oldest lighthouse in the nation.

Sailing races are just one of the many watersports opportunities available in this area. Thanks to easy access to New York, Philadelphia and other major centers, racing stars are regular visitors as are those who seek the incredible surfing, windsurfing, fishing . . . you name it. With such an intricate and influential history, it is no wonder that the area’s oldest real estate firm should also be the go-to-broker for an intimate knowledge of the local property market. Clayton & Clayton Realtors, Inc., was established in 1930 by Stanley C. Clayton and the fourth generation of his descendents are still in charge today, with a fifth generation in the “grooming” arena. The family business is still dedicated to handling clients’ properties and property searches “quietly” while publically they “just simply produce.” They succeed “quietly” as brokers of choice because of the unique intimacy such long term community involvement permits. Combining knowledge and local connections, extremely aggressive and protective of their elite clientele, the company is recognized as the finest, most reputable & most productive in its market.

The Hamptons Written by B. B. Smith

S

easide villages that make up The Hamptons can easily be described as a state of mind as easily as a geographic location. A luxury backyard playground of the rich and famous alike, the Hamptons are never far from the public eye, whether in film, on television or through titillating gossip so often supplied by said rich and/or famous! Given the glamour and luxury that signifies The Hamptons today, it’s hard to picture this setting, with its perfect combination of picturesque and sophistication, as once a collection of tiny hamlets, rural villages that formed the South Fork of 118-mile-long Long Island, NY. Today The Hamptons boast some of the most expensive luxury properties in the U.S. The Sagaponack zip code (11962) was declared the most expensive small town in the nation in 2009. A wide range of housing pricing is available, of course.

American luxury estates

And, in turn, The Hamptons provide a year-round vacation setting, with quaint New England Kodak moments around every bend, pristine beaches, exciting antiquing and shopping, fabulous restaurants, and year-round sports appeal. A full system of roads connect Long Island to surrounding mainlands, along with a ferry for easy connects to both Connecticut and New York. A dream job for top luxury property realtors like Gary DePersia of Corcoran Group Real Estate. The Hamptons’ “perfect light” that today draws noted artists from around the globe probably wasn’t what first attracted the fishermen who settled this picturesque area over 360 years ago. More likely they were looking for more profitable waters — and threatening to burn witches in their spare time. No doubt their eyes did boggled at the incredible wide stretches of pristine beach, soothing ocean breezes and dramatic bluffs of Montauk, which create awesome views that have to be seen to be believed. Add to these delights the incredible luxury estates built by the wealthy families of New York and surrounding areas anxious to escape summer in the (then-un-air-conditioned) cities, and the quaint cottages built by those who came to serve and sell to them. No wonder The Hamptons now boast among their famous residents Rockefellers, Kennedys, Calvin Klein, Sean “P. Diddy” Combs, Matt Lauer, Jerry Seinfield, Gwyneth Paltrow, Renee Zellweger, Martha Stewart, Jann Wenner, to name just a few. And they bring with them, of course, a demand for quality in everything from restaurants to entertainment to shopping. And where the celebrities are, so follow tabloid-types. Did you know, for example, that for an entire summer, a French con artist had The Hamptons believing he was a Rockefeller? Or that Billy Joel has (on more than one

occasion) been stopped for reckless driving? Or that Madonna, while horseback riding, took a spill when her horse was spooked by a paparazzo. Speaking of accidents, Matt Lauer was injured when avoiding a collision with a deer when he was out bike riding near his home. The Hampton Classic — one of the country’s largest hunter/jumper horse shows — is both a major international-draw sporting competition and one of the most extravagant social events of The Hampton’s summer season. 2012’s all-new Taylor Harris Triple Crown Challenge offers a spectacular $200,000 top prize for any show jumping rider that can put together back to back to back wins at three of the nation’s most prestigious grand prix events. The glacial Ronkonkoma Moraine hills that run through the north part gradually flatten out into a sandy plain that leads to the Atlantic’s barrier beach, putting winter sports and fantastic fishing and surfing close at hand. Huge draws are the impressive swells off fashionable Main Beach. The Gulf Stream currents are so warm that those who treasure the outdoors are as drawn to this area as those who just want to such an ambiance to call home year-round. The Hamptons are an area where folks care about, and take care of, the environment. Nature Centers and ecological projects abound. Historical events such as the Nature Centers, ecological projects and historical events tied to the countryside abound. As Corcoran realtor Gary DePersia explains, “The dynamic Hamptons are rapidly evolving from summer getaway to country retreat...a place where those with busy lives elsewhere are investing more and more of their precious leisure time year round.” For additional information on your real estate needs, please contact The Corcoran Group at 516-380-0538 or email at gdp@corcoran.com. 27
