Gibson Lane: The Promise of Things to Come Sagaponack, New York. Nearly three acres, awash in Sagaponack sea breezes and only a few hundred yards to the beach, presents an unparalleled opportunity in the hamlet that has become the nexus of the Hampton lifestyle. An amiable 4 bedroom farm house of recent vintage anchors this expansive property, which additionally offers a two-story barn with upstairs finished loft and full bath, heated pool and acres of grassy expanse, all secluded behind tall perimeter trees. However, those seeking something more formidable might be intrigued to learn that this singular offering could accommodate a new 8,300 SF+/- residence, pool, 1,245 SF+/- pool house/accessory structure and full size North/South tennis court that would have views to the East of a nearby horse farm and South across an 11 acre reserve past a handful of ocean side estates to the very Atlantic beyond. Held in the same ownership for nearly 400 years, this never before available 2.75 acre property presents a limited window to create the ultimate Hampton experience. Exclusive. $13,500,000 WEB# 31536.

Montauk Property Owners

Expand the Possibilities of Oceanfront Living

F

or immediate release…New York investor Henry Druker and Matt Goldman, the co-founder behind the highly successful Blue Man Group theatrical productions, have embarked upon a creative real estate venture in Montauk, NY, the seaside hamlet fast emerging as the “it” spot for investment in the Hamptons. The neighbors have created a virtual merger of two prime, contiguous 1 ½ acre lots to provide an exceptional oceanfront land opportunity on Montauk’s coveted Gold Coast that counts Robert DiNiro, Jann Wenner, Steven Roth and Ralph Lauren as neighbors. The merger of the two adjacent 1½ acre parcels results in an oversized oceanfront land offering with 186’+/- of pristine ocean frontage. With an ideal elevation of 55’, the expanded setting is the perfect location for a spectacular beachfront residence commanding some of the area’s most dramatic ocean vistas. The property merger was the creative work of Druker, a long-time resident of East Hampton, NY, and Goldman a long time resident of Montauk. Druker owns his lot in partnership with Red McCombs, the co-founder of Clear Channel Communications and former owner of the San Antonio Spurs and Minnesota Vikings. They together envisioned the intrinsic value of a larger ocean front site - flexibility for development, more generous setbacks and greater preservation of the open spaces and vistas that distinguish Montauk and its landscape. Druker and Goldman each recognized that their neighboring individual lots would be even more special if combined. To imagine the possibilities for development within all town specifications, Druker and Goldman commissioned the prestigious East Hampton architectural firm of Fleetwood & McMullan, LLC to create a site plan for the newly expanded 3-acre parcel. A thoughtful plan was conceived for a spectacular, up to 10,000 sq. ft. home overlooking a 60-foot ocean side

pool and short, meandering private path to the magnificent beachfront. The plan is available for consideration by prospective buyers. The unique features of this property offering will undoubtedly appeal to savvy buyers. The building envelope conforms to all East Hampton Town specifications, the governing body over Montauk development. This is an important attribute in an area that fiercely protects its natural lands, wildlife and waterfront. Druker had previously preserved and moved a Fleetwood designed home from a neighbor’s lot to his own in the town of East Hampton. Druker and Goldman engaged the support of town officials for the combined lot in Montauk while forming their partnership. The combined lot offers the new buyer a larger home and more dramatic ocean side pool than what could be built on either lot individually, while creating less density and development than what would occur if each lot were individually developed. The result is more privacy, open space and generous set backs to neighboring properties. Since the 1920’s preservationists have buffered Montauk against over development establishing abundant parkland, natural reserves and wildlife sanctuaries. Vacant property is relatively scarce in Montauk where nearly 2/3 of the land has been preserved. Today, Montauk maintains its unique blend of natural rugged coastline beauty peppered with eclectic housing opportunities ranging from dramatic oceanfront villas to quaint beach cottages. Montauk has enjoyed a real estate renaissance of late where deep-sea fisherman, avid surfers, artists, local residents, celebrity homeowners and summer residents peacefully coexist and mutually enjoy and respect the serenity, salty ocean air and relaxed vibe of this enclave at the easternmost tip of Long Island. The Druker-Goldman property is a significant offering in an area where 3 prime ocean front acres are sought after and scarce. Offered at $12,500,000. For more information, contact RPLG International at 713-302-0555.

Rookwood: :

I

nternational by design, this superb ten acre mountaintop estate offers an unobstructed 270 degree view of the valley below. This estate has had a love affair with two families: one, the client and one, the architect:a love affair with the mountain, the view and the home. This magnificent oriental inspired residence is a peaceful place surrounded by waterfalls, koi ponds and gardens that are stunning throughout the year. There is quite a story to tell about this exquisite residence on a mountaintop in Greenville, South Carolina. In the late 1980’s Ben Rook, a commercial architect, and CEO of Odell Associates, Inc. a global architectural firm, was approached by a prominent client to design a residence for his family. Ben did not do residential design work and declined, but this particular client was very insistent, and eventually Mr. Rook agreed. The site for the residence was atop Paris Mountain in Greenville, South Carolina. Using the Japanese design and theme of Feng Shui, Ben eventually created a central pavilion and five pavilions connecting each other. The final result comes from years of labor, and it was well worth the wait. As you round the bend in the road you do not immediately see the home. In fact it is a surprise that quietly and beautifully unfolds like a new spring flower. The entrance is framed gently and tastefully by seasonal flowers and the koi are your only greeters. The waterfall announces your arrival yet beckons you to stay. There is no doubt of the entrance ringed in dominant red. Upon entering, the magnificent view of the valley draws you immediately outside. The expansive grassy lawn unfolds to

A Love Affair

unending woods that stretch for miles below. Ben never guessed that he would one day have the opportunity to own the home, but he did. Only the second owner, Ben and his wife, Becca, have enjoyed the house and gardens. “ What I love so about the house, “Becca says “ is the open feeling of the glass walls and sensing that the outside can come in.” “I can never grow tired of the incredible feeling of peace here.” The home has over 7,000 square feet with a magnificent indoor and outdoor swimming pool as well as a hot tub . Part of the evolution of the property under the care of the Rooks has been the magnificent gardens which are seasonal in nature and really quite low maintenance. You will notice more grassy areas mingled with plantings at the entry of the drive , and then transitioned to a more finished landscape above the waterfall. The green house is the envy of every gardener! The entire house takes advantage of the breathtaking view including all of the bedrooms, the living room, dining room, library, and the kitchen. The dining room and living room share a stunning open fireplace. A detached studio features a soaring ceiling and fireplace and could be used as an office or separate guest quarters.

Lonesome Ridge

at Lonesome Valley, Cashiers, North Carolina

B

efore Cashiers developed into the quaint mountain village that it is today, the Cherokee knew this plateau at 3,500 feet as a cool, lush campground that figured prominently in their seasonal migrations. Many others have since discovered the natural wonders of this temperate forest nestled high upon the ancient slopes of the Blue Ridge Escarpment. Bisected by the Eastern Continental Divide and protected by thousands of surrounding acres of the Nantahala National Forest, Cashiers is cherished as a unique mountain destination offering nationally ranked golf courses, award winning restaurants, many notable communities and charming antique shops. Current development is balanced with hundreds of miles of hiking trails and fly fishing streams, countless waterfalls, magnificent granite faces, and enough adventure to satisfy any outdoor enthusiast.

vast natural resources. Over one third of the Valley is forever preserved as common green space, utilizing stream corridors, meadows and forests as natural buffers between generously sized estates. With sufficient golf and traditional country club amenities offered by other area communities, Lonesome Valley has instead focused on hiking, fishing, boating, swimming and other nature-based, family-friendly activities. Simplicity, rest and recreation combine with fine dining (at Canyon Kitchen with James Beard Award Finalist, Chef John Fleer) and festive gatherings to create the ethos of this community. Based on the enduring commitment to purposeful excellence established five generations ago, Lonesome Valley will continue to provide joyful family memories for generations to come.

Cashiers is located in southwestern North Carolina, in the southern Appalachian Mountains, just north of the common boundary point of North Carolina, Georgia and South Carolina. Driving time is within three hours of Atlanta, Charlotte, Chattanooga, Augusta and Columbia and less than five hours from Knoxville and Birmingham. Nearby airports include Asheville (1.25 hours), Greenville (1.75 hours), Atlanta (3 hours) and Charlotte (3 hours).

Lonesome Valley is framed by Cow Rock Mountain and Laurel Knob along with other ridges that form the largest box canyon in the East. At 4,200 feet atop Cow Rock Mountain exists Lonesome Ridge, a 90+ acre parklike estate overlooking the valley below. With unsurpassed vistas in every direction, flat and gently sloping topography, paved roads and utilities already established, and several well groomed homesites, this estate can be preserved as a single large tract or subdivided into as many as six individual parcels.

Just two miles east of the center of Cashiers, Lonesome Valley enjoys a rich history dating back to 1895 when E.H. Jennings acquired over 35,000 acres in the mountains of western North Carolina. Following the development of several prestigious inns along regional lakes, the Jennings family retained 800 acres of the original holdings as their own private retreat. In 2004 the family decided to invite other families and friends to share their mountain cove, affectionately known as Lonesome Valley. And so this vibrant community began.

Several trails link a variety of viewing decks, wildflower meadows, picnic and gaming areas on manicured lawns along with walking connections to Lonesome Valley to the west and Panthertown Valley to the northeast. Panthertown Valley, comprising over six thousand acres of Nantahala National Forest, is known as the “Yosemite of the East” with its signature granite faces, trout streams and miles of trails for hiking and mountain biking.

Founded upon the principles of true conservation, Lonesome Valley successfully blends thoughtful development with the protection of its

Lonesome Ridge is a pinnacle property with exceptional characteristics, providing unique opportunities to invest in family, friends and the future.

Atlanta

Written Written by by B. B. B. B. Smith Smith

A

tlanta is a city on the move . . . on such a move, in fact, it is the fastest-growing city in the nation. And it boasts more fiber optic cable than any other city in the nation.

Bet most folks flying into Atlanta are totally unaware they are also looking at a geological wonder — the geographic center of the American South. The Eastern Continental Divide runs right through downtown Atlanta. Rainwater on the south and east side of this “divide” drains to the Atlantic Ocean. Rainfall to the north and west drains into the Gulf of Mexico. Atlanta began as the end point of a new railroad line. Stories abound as to the name’s origin. A favorite: It was a version of the middle name, Atalanta, of then-Georgia Gov. Wilson Lumpkin’s daughter. The mythological Greek athlete goddes Atalanta’s father so wanted a boy, he raised his daughter to participate in primarily male sports, but she somehow maintained an aura of extreme sexuality. A fitting name, to be sure. Atlanta melds an obsession with history with an incredible forward-thinking mentality, according to Atlanta Fine Homes, the city’s leading real estate firm. The nation’s third largest concentration of Fortune 500 companies can be found in Atlanta, including Delta Airlines, Coca-Cola and CNN broadcasting which were started in this city. Other world headquarters here are Turner Broadcasting, Home Depot, and AT&T Mobility. Newell Rubbermaid and UPS. Atlanta’s musical ties are legendary. She is often called the “Center of Gravity” for hip-hop and is (or was) home to musical artist such as Usher, Ray Charles, Sugarland, Alan Jackson, Jerry Reed, Travis Tritt, Trisha Earwood, Lady Antebellum, Jason Aldean, Gladys Knight & the Pips, Otis Redding and Brenda Lee, to name just a few of literally hundreds. With Atlanta’s numerous high-end communities that cater to luxury residences come all the amenities demanded by those who can afford the very best — in education, shopping, cuisine, arts and culture. The High Museum of Art is the South’s leading art museum. The Michael C. Carlos Museum contains the largest collection of ancient art in the Southeast.

Atlanta’s claim to literary excellence is unparalleled with residents such as Margaret Mitchell (“Gone With the Wind,” the best-selling novelist of all time), Alice Walker (Pulitzer Prize-winning “The Color Purple”), Alfred Uhry (“Driving Miss Daisy”), Joel Chandler Harris (“Brer Fox” and “Uncle Remus”). Other notable residents include (or included) President Jimmy Carter, Senator Sam Nunn, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., Julia Roberts, Jane Fonda, Jeff Foxworthy, Holly Hunter, Spike Lee, Ryan Seacrest, Stephen Soderberg, Deborah Norville, Bert Parks and Chris Tucker to name just a few. Atlanta’s known as a “peach” of a city, with over 32 streets sporting that name in part. But the stone fruit has nothing to do with Atlanta’s “peach-y” lore. Cherokee and Creek Indians inhabited this area for eons including one large settlement named Standing Pitch Tree, after a solitary tree nearby. White settlers corrupted “Pitch Tree” into Peachtree. Atlanta is one of the nation’s most “livable” cities, but you’d better learn the lingo. Directions often include “ITP” and “OTP” — for “Inside the Perimeter” and “Outside the Perimeter” — meaning Interstate 385, which encircling most of the city. It might also help to know that the affluent neighborhood, Buckhead, is named after the buck’s head (deer head) mounted on a popular area waystation. Amazingly — considering it was burned to the ground during the Civil War — Atlanta boasts more than 40 historic districts. An intimate knowledge of the city and its high-end lifestyles is essential when it comes to “Artfully uniting extraordinary properties with extraordinary lives” — as Atlanta Fine Homes’ motto proclaims. Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty agents are guided by their mission statement:

“We are passionate in our interactions with clients, associates and employees, as well as in the delivery of our services. Not only is the real estate experience of our team unparalleled, but the client’s experience in dealing with our company is second to none.
