Surely one of the most charming and lovingly built custom designed homes in our area. This ultra-sophisticated French boasts a formal symmetry and an impressive motor-court outside, and a relaxed “shabby chic” décor inside – oh so inviting. From the slurry mortar brick exterior the two-story entry with a curved double stairwell and massive railings, the antique pine floors, limestone columns and fireplaces to the hand built cabinetry by KernsWilcheck, and rich hand finished walls character abounds. Located on 2 acres with a larger formal pool on blue-stone decking, and with a tennis court it is in “THE” recognized Estate-district of Germantown. $2,195,000

Big Canoe awarded “ 2011 Community of the Year” by the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association.

THE SECOND HOME: NEVER A BETTER TIME

North Georgia’s Big Canoe® is the ideal choice. By Eric Snider

T

HE SECOND HOME, once just a dream for so many, is now within the realistic grasp of an ever-increasing number of Americans. Are you a dreamer … or a doer?

Due to a convergence of factors, the timing has never been better to make that second home a reality. Simply put, housing prices remain affordable, housing selection is plentiful and interests rates are at historic lows. It’s been more than 30 years since there was such a perfect storm of buying opportunity. Now is the time to lock in that future retirement home at today’s prices … and enjoy it right away. BIG CANOE, located in the undulating foothills of the North Georgia Appalachians just an hour from Atlanta, is a gorgeous gated community filled with lush homes that meld into a forested canopy. With its abundance of amenities and active lifestyle, Big Canoe is a vibrant, yearround community, with roughly 60 percent fulltime residents. But Big Canoe has long been a popular destination for second homes because it fulfills one of the most important issues: Location. Experts agree that buying a second home within an accessible distance of your primary residence is crucial. A Polynesian paradise might strike a romantic chord, but having a place you’ll actually use is far more valuable. Big Canoe is within easy driving distance of Atlanta International Airport, one of the biggest hubs in the world. And while the community is close to a major city, one whiff of the fresh mountain air, a stroll on its 22 miles of hiking trails

or a gaze over one of the lakes makes it feel like you’re a million miles away. BABY BOOMERS are far and away the biggest market of second-home owners. Studies have shown that their top priorities for buying are: • Establishing a family retreat. • Eventually turning it into their primary residence for retirement and family fun. The baby boom generation — its senior members now reaching retirement age — is certainly not bound for the rocking chair. Among boomers’ predominant goals is maintaining a vigorous, healthy lifestyle. You can hardly do better on that count than Big Canoe. The community features a 27-hole championship golf course with mountain peaks as a backdrop. The 16,000-square-foot fitness center is state of the art. Add in the swim club, hiking trails, tennis center, fishing and boating, and Big Canoe presents enough recreational options to satisfy anyone. And that goes for kids and grandkids too. Enhancing the flexibility of the secondhome lifestyle, Big Canoe residents can use amenities on either an a la carte basis or pay on an annual fee basis. Adding to the fun, Big Canoe offers a myriad of social opportunities, including dinners at the Clubhouse at Lake Sconti overlooking the 9th fairway of the Creek Course, as well as several other fine restaurants nearby. The community also features 50-plus vibrant, established clubs — from mah jongg to men’s pool shooters — as well as charitable organizations. In all, it’s easy to make new friends and associates at Big Canoe.

And easy to find quality medical care. The community is 15 minutes away from Piedmont Mountainside Hospital and 30 minutes from Northside Hospital. WHETHER YOU USE a second home as a regular weekend retreat or as a vacation spot/rental property, one thing is for sure: you do not want to worry about it when you’re away. To that end, Big Canoe features a round-the-clock security force. The Big Canoe Property Owners Association and the still-active developer, Big Canoe Company, have worked jointly for over 23 years. Big Canoe Company, which has zero debt, is a robust developer, making certain that the community stays current, fresh and viable. Big Canoe Company is actively building new neighborhoods within the community’s expansive 8,000-plus acres. Combined with existing neighborhoods, Big Canoe offers homes in a wide range of price points, from $300,000 to more than $3-million. People throughout the country are increasingly aware of the benefits of owning a second home. As more and more become doers and not just dreamers, this perfect convergence of buying opportunity is certain to ebb. Housing stock will tighten, prices will go up, interests rates will rise — it’s inevitable. Now’s the time to make that second home a reality.

John’s Island Vero Beach, Florida

John’s Island: Where the tropics begin

Private. Privileged. Paradise. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Gorgeous English, Georgian, and West Indies architecture, first-class amenities, three championship golf courses, a spectacular new Beach Club, world-

class tennis, squash and croquet facilities are all gently wrapped in the abundant natural landscape where the manatee live, the dolphins play in lagoons, and the tropics begin. Discovered due to its natural splendor by E. Llwyd Eccelstone in 1969, this 1,650-acre ocean-to-river paradise is just north of Vero Beach, a quaint unspoiled gem of a seaside town that still retains the charm of Old Florida and yet boasts a high caliber theatre, museum of art and big city culture. To say that multiple generations of John’s Island Club members and their families relish the wonderful life here would be an understatement. With so many social, recreational and cultural activities available, no one sits on the sidelines. And, John’s Island remains one of the only private clubs in the nation with a vertical membership.

“Your senses are opened here,” says Bob Gibb, owner/broker of John’s Island Real Estate Company, “You’ll see generations of families enjoying the beautiful weather, playing a friendly tennis match, golfing or simply relaxing on the beach. There is something for everyone here.” Whether it’s tarpon fishing in John’s Island Sound, biking through 20 miles of private shaded roads under majestic oaks and palm trees or enjoying an oceanfront dinner at the Beach Club it is here that memories and family traditions continue to be made and treasured for a lifetime.

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.

Tir Na Nog

An Exceptional Beach Front Retreat

W

elcome to Tir Na Nog, an exclusive and enchanting private estate near the historic town of Governors Harbour, Eleuthera, a place where the legend of “The Land of the Ever Young” can come to reality. Here the flowers bloom all year-round against the backdrop of fabulous views of the Atlantic Ocean, casting their scents within the peace and serenity of the 10 acre gardens and walkways. Tir Na Nog is located in the most sought after location in Eleuthera, the Atlantic seashore on Banks Road, where there are a select number of Estates overlooking an amazing beach and only minutes from nearby restaurants and the charming Village of Governors Harbour. At Tir Na Nog your senses will be indulged. Interiors were recently renovated and designed by the gracious David Flint-Wood, co-author of “Island Style,” a wonderful book of what Island Life is. Applying the very flair that made the Island Style decor renowned, he used simple wood and white linens, organic materials, soft lighting and tropical touches ― warm and soothing to the senses. The Land: 10 acres of coconut lined rolling dunes and pathways lead to one of the most fabulous beaches you have ever seen. Stroll the miles long beach; stop in at Tippy’s restaurant for a cool drink or a bite. Lounge in the sun, in the hammocks strung in the coconut grove or under the beachfront gazebo. Covered with coconut trees and a variety of fruit trees, there is always something to pick and eat.
