Mesmerizing Waterfront in Field Point Circle Greenwich, Connecticut


Cover Property

Mesmerizing Waterfront in Field Point Circle Greenwich, Connecticut. Views for miles up Long Island Sound from this high site make a totally memorable vista for this fabulous new manor designed by a noted architect and built over three-and-one-half years by old world craftsmen to an extraordinary standard of quality. Majestic trees line the broad circle of this sought after gated enclave. The unique walled water garden has hand-cut bluestone slabs as walkways to the handsome front door with a carved keystone. The welcoming center hall with an elevator rises two stories to a balcony supported by antique oak brackets and the floor and curving stairway are Italian stone. The magnificent panelled step-down Great Room is 70-feet long with antique chestnut flooring, carved oak beams which create subtle drama and three limestone fireplaces – one in the living room with bookcases, one in the library and one in the book-lined family room adjoining the stunning antique oak kitchen while mahogany French doors open to a marvelous terrace. The constantly changing views of Long Island Sound are the most beautiful living painting one can imagine. A 4.5-feet deep archway leads to the memorable dining room with a wood ceiling and a two-story wall of windows to the water garden, a view shared by the breakfast room. There is a mudroom, a four-car garage and a wing with a living room, a wet bar, a bedroom and a bath. The serene master suite has a loggia off the sitting room, a fireplace in the sumptuous bedroom, a sublime double bathroom and two dressing rooms. There are three additional en suite bedrooms and a sitting room. The garden level has an amazing family room with a fireplace, a dramatic indoor pool, a vaulted ceiling, and major sliding doors opening to the terrace – it gives the sense of being outdoors, and there is an exercise room, a bath/changing room and a wet bar. The views over picturesque boats bobbing gently at anchor are delightful from first morning light, to afternoon indigo hour and to evening with twinkling lights on the Long Island shore. Featured on a recent cover of Architectural Digest, this unique and special home has an amazing sense of total quality – a peaceful, sublime and private retreat.

Harrison Ridge Estate delights with its close proximity to myriad outdoor activities as well as to downtown Gold Beach, a quaint tourist town located approximately 30 miles north of the California border in what is known, due to its mild climate, as “the banana belt of Oregon.” World-class golf at Bandon Dunes Resort is about an hour’s drive north, and Gold Beach also boasts its own public golf course, Cedar Bend. World-class fishing in the Rogue River, horseback riding, surfing, kayaking, rafting, canoeing, wind surfing, clam digging, beachcombing, storm watching, whale watching, bird watching and strolling along the beach are all popular activities in the area. With a private airport two minutes away, and commercial flights available within an hour’s drive, commuting is definitely a possibility for the determined businessman. The beauty of the great outdoors envelops you as you arrive on the property via the paved, gated winding road threading through tall fir trees to end at the impressive 8 bedroom, 8-1/2 bath Cape Cod style home. It was lovingly designed by the sellers (Gregory Harrison, an actor best known for his role as Gonzo on the TV series TRAPPER JOHN MD, and Randi Oakes Harrison, formerly an actress on the series CHIPS) who relocated from Southern California to Oregon in 1992. Determined to raise their children in an area known for its beauty, mild climate, friendly community, outdoor activities

and healthy lifestyles, the Harrison’s have enjoyed nurturing their children in this kid-friendly yet elegant home. With every room providing a world-class view, the home easily transcends from child-friendly warmth into a wonderful entertainment space for even the most discriminating. The heart of the home is the large Great Room/Living Area with its high ceilings and open floor plan...connecting seamlessly to the dining area, breakfast nook, entertainment balcony and oversized kitchen (with 2 ovens, granite counter tops, island and double pantry). This all makes for flowing, workable spaces for an intimate gathering...or a party for 200. A black tie affair may have occurred on Friday night, followed by rollerblading through the living room on Saturday morning and artwork at the nook in the afternoon. The main house also provides 6 bedrooms and 5-1/2 baths, as well as 2 offices, including the spectacular Crow’s Nest which sits at the top, above a full library. The attached 3-car garage includes a surfer’s den, with board-rack and a tiled shower/drying room. Above the garage are two large apartments, each with private full bath. One has a separate entrance and its own kitchenette, while the other connects to the main house via the beautiful hardwood hallway. A fully equipped gym, a flow-pool and large Jacuzzi provide in-house exercise and relaxation. For the equestrian, the 6-stall horse barn (with hay loft, tack room and full bath) is but a short stroll away. Offered at $3,900,000.

Southwest Florida popular destination for Northeasterners

aples and Southwest Florida have always been a haven for Midwesterners because the area’s casual lifestyle and relaxed attitude most resembles that of their home state. In fact, Naples was founded by a group from Kentucky, and several key developers from Ohio, Chicago and other Midwestern areas have played key roles in the development of the area over the years. Recently, however, the west coast of Florida has become more attractive to Northeasterners who are relocating here in increasing numbers.

Who can blame them? Southwest Florida is the perfect escape from the Northeast’s long, harsh winters and its renowned fast-paced momentum. Residents from New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts and surrounding states have discovered that choosing the more calming environment of Southwest Florida does not mean trading the luxury comforts they’ve become accustomed to up north. Southwest Florida’s soothing setting, which amounts to less traffic, less noise and less stress, does not mean there is nothing to do. Over the last decade, Naples and the surrounding cities of Bonita Springs, Estero and Marco Island have transformed from sleepy, beachfront communities 40

into sophisticated settings. While the area has always been known for its comfortable year-around weather and outdoor recreational activities, including world-class golf, it has since added tony shopping and sensational dining to its list of things to do. Meccas like Mercado, Coconut Point and Gulf Coast Town Center have joined long-established shopping and browsing destinations, such as the Village on Venetian Bay, The Promenade, Miromar Outlets and Waterside Shops. These locations boast retail names such as Gucci, Tiffany, Guess, Nordstrom’s, Mondo Uomo, Saks Fifth Avenue and Salvatore Ferragamo, plus plenty of restaurant opportunities. Additionally, the area’s arts and cultural offerings have also evolved giving Northeasterners a taste of home. The Philharmonic Center for the Arts in Naples and the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall in Fort Myers bring a sampling of big city hits from Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “South Pacific” and Michael Feinstein’s tributes to “West Side Story” and the New York City Rockettes. Blues, jazz, opera, country, bluegrass, classical----all music styles can be found at locations varying from the Philharmonic to outdoor band

shells to simple coffee shops or taverns. Likewise, modern dance, ballet, comedy and other genres can be found in ample supply. The Naples area has become an artist haven, with hundreds of artists, and key display locations such as the Naples Museum of Art, the von Liebig Art Center and a vast array of art galleries, sure to please even the most discriminating connoisseur. It would be remiss not to make further mention of the outdoor activities, which are a large draw to those from northern areas. Golfing is renowned, with the Naples area laying claim to the most golf holes per capita. For those who are not golfers, there are still many choices. Boating, fishing, swimming and the beach are always popular … likewise for walking, biking and tennis. Nature hikes in the areas around the fabulous Everglades are always interesting. The bottom line is that it’s hard not to be outside when the weather is so beautiful. Of course, there’s nothing like a spring training baseball game on a beautiful sunny day, which explains why the Boston Red Sox games are so popular. In fact, a new stadium is currently under construction for the team. Few areas can boast two spring training teams, but Southwest Florida has the Red Sox and the Minnesota Twins.

Beyond the entertainment choices and host of activities, those from the Northeast are also enjoying the tax benefits of Florida, including the Homestead Exemption which entitles homeowners to a significant tax break. The lack of a state income tax is perhaps the most compelling of all, reportedly helping to attract celebrities, sports stars and especially non-famous people to the state. Southwest Florida is attractive for a number of reasons, which is why it is not surprising that the area is becoming increasingly popular as a desirable place to relocate or to retire. John R. Wood Realtors has been helping people find their dream homes in the area for over 50 years. Traditionally, the company assists many Northeasterners who start with a second home, eventually changing it to a permanent location. Today, however, increasing numbers are bypassing the second home stage and making Florida their “primary residence” (refer back to no income tax!), and spending 7 to 12 months in the area. Properties for sale in Naples and Southwest Florida can easily be located on www.JohnRWood.com, or the company can be contacted at 800-349-9999.
