1609 Seaside Drive

Galveston, Texas

This majestic home at 1609 Seaside is a landmark in Galveston’s exclusive Beachtown community. Located on the east end of the island where nature is actually making the beaches wider, Beachtown has been called the “Hamptons of the South.” Designed by Milosav Cekic and built by Gulf Coast Custom Homes, the home originated with the best craftsmen and was completed in the same fashion. No expense was spared. Per the architect, “The house occupies one of the four most prominent BEACHFRONT lots in Beachtown. It terminates the passage between the town center and the ocean and stands next to the gazebo at the start of the dune walkover. The house is strongly inspired by tradition in general, and by a wealth of Galveston’s architectural heritage, in particular. It uses both Victorian and Gothic elements to create a house as stately as some of the great historic houses still standing on Galveston’s Broadway. “ The home is over 5,000 square feet on 4 levels. It features 7 bedrooms, 7 1/2 bathrooms, exercise room with infrared sauna, elevator, custom 100 year old French Oak wide plank floors, tongue and groove 8" paneling on interior walls, state-of-theart home automation, two fireplaces, study, library, wet bars and designer lighting. The kitchen leaves nothing to the imagination with Sub Zero and Wolf appliances, including a steamer, 2 sets of Fisher & Paykel dual drawer dishwashers, Butler’s Pantry, honed Carrera marble Island and honed slate perimeter counters. Water views are found throughout the home and on over an additional 1,700 square feet of covered porches. The home was professionally decorated and is being offered furnished including many antique pieces and lighting. The asking price is $4,095,000 and is only for those who enjoy and appreciate the best of the best. Call Kelly Kelley at 281.794.9463 to qualify for a private tour.

King of the

Hill Country D

eveloper’s Home- As they planned The Reserve at Lake Travis, developer Hal Jones and his partner Red McCombs envisioned an enclave for buyers who appreciated the environment, looking for a unique Texas lifestyle with resort style amenities. “I wanted you to be able to load your belongings on to a golf cart at your home and drive to your boat slip�, Jones said. In the end, the project evolved into something completely unique. This 310 acre resort community in Austin Texas, lies on 3.5 miles of pristine shoreline along Lake Travis. Residents can secure their boats at the fullservice marina, which offers 150 covered boat slips accommodating vessels up to 80 feet long. The gated, private club community includes a lazy river pool and slide with swim up bar, comprehensive equestrian center and lighted arena, lakeside lodge and grill, tennis courts, community fishing pond and coming soon, lakefront club house with restaurant, spa services and fitness center.


Country Chic on the Texas Riviera

Now Jones has his personal estate, completed in 2008 on the market, as he advances his other developments. He plans to build a second residence in The Reserve. The homes’ cedar siding, hand-hewn Douglas Fur beams and 54 foot ceilings evoke the architecture style of the Rocky Mountains, one of Jones’ favorite get aways. A native of Texas, Jones enjoys the outdoors, “I love indigenous materials” he said, describing the home’s 200 tons of rock formations and 140 year old reclaimed wood flooring. His study walls are fashioned in Pecky Cypress, a type of cypress with lens-shaped pockets that give the wood a three dimension look. “It’s just a really unique feel, almost like a honeycomb,” he said. Jones is a developer known for his gift of finding rare land and turning it into something special for it’s owners. Also apparent in this one of a kind estate, inside and out with 7 acres of very unique waterfront, nothing compares in Texas. A developer who demands the very best, is now offering the very best in Texas Living.

Grab a piece of the Texas Hill country with a luxurious mountain-styled home on Lake Travis. 7,612 square feet of interior space and 3,900 additional feet of covered outdoor living, with 1200 feet of shoreline layered with century old oak trees. Panoramic views from every room. The estate has three master suites and a bonus room available as a guest suite. 4 1/2 baths and garage space for 7. Very special lifestyle rooms to include oversized gourmet kitchen, great room with massive wood beamed ceilings, 20 feet of glass nano doors, opening to the lakeside verandah with indoor and outdoor fireplaces. Wine and cigar retreat, covered verandah and game room adjoining the infinity edge pool. Tall Texan storytelling takes place at the fire-pit, sharing good wine with good friends. Stately yet warm for comfortable entertaining, best describe it’s feel. For horse lovers this property boasts a three stall barn with living quarters and large paddock with close proximity to the community equestrian center. And for water lovers, lavish in your private pool, magnificent views of the lake and a private dock with two large vessel covered slips. It also features a private helipad and is within minutes of two private airports. Residents enjoy a short commute to downtown Austin, the music capital of the world and are just minutes from shopping, hill country vineyards, renowned golf courses and the new international race facility, hosting Formula 1 Grand Prix.

Picosa Ranch W

hen John B. Connally, three-term governor from 1963 to 1969, wanted to escape politics, it was to Picosa Ranch, 30 miles from downtown San Antonio, he and his wife, Nellie, retreated. When entertaining Presidents and other leaders, they hosted parties at the same destination. Connally was proud of his lifelong homestead, maintained through his tenure as governor, Secretary of the Navy and Secretary of the Treasury. His presence is still felt throughout the ranch, especially in his office where memorabilia have been preserved. Some 40 years later, its sale will provide a new family the opportunity to create its own legacy at Picosa Ranch. With its proximity to San Antonio, increasingly a mecca of cultural and culinary arts, and to the Eagle Ford Shale, the property is an amazing opportunity for many varied ventures. “Newcomers to Texas are fleeing high local and state taxes, cold weather, high crime and other problems,” said listing broker Rick Kuper of Kuper Sotheby’s International Realty. “The Picosa Ranch, deep in the heart of Texas, affords a golden opportunity to build a legacy for generations to come.” Building a family legacy is all the more enjoyable knowing income from the Picosa’s extensive hunting operation can offset the ranch’s operating costs. With many luxurious trappings, hunting at Picosa Ranch is popular for corporate retreats and business transactions as well as serious social get-togethers. Among established breeds are trophy white tailed deer, upland game birds and exotic eland, oryx, addax and waterbucks. Presently hunt packages last four days and three nights and include a guide, in-field transportation, game care, bass fishing and trap shooting. Hunters see an average of 30 bucks a day, more when the rut is on. Guests may fly onto the property via a 4,400-foot lighted airstrip; or, San Antonio International Airport is no more than 45 minutes away.

One of the benefits of continuing the commercial side of the ranch is its separation from the owners’ residence, many acres removed, at The South Range Lodge. This compound includes six finely appointed suites, each with handtooled leather accessories and a luxurious bathroom. The suites’ wrap-around porch invites long talks or studying nature. Between the main lodge and suites is a lagoon-like sunken pool with a swim-up bar. Within the lodge, itself a stylish renovation of a cattle barn, guests gather at the pool table, massive stone fireplace and flat screen TVs or play a game outdoors. A full outdoor kitchen, called The Pit, has a fully equipped kitchen, surround sound and three large flat-screen TVs with BluRay all under a covered flagstone pavilion accommodates up to 40 tables. Meanwhile back home….the Connally’s luxurious 8,200-square-foot main house was built with grand spaces for living and entertaining. Soaring ceilings and walls of glass create a modern sensibility, accentuated by native limestone and indigenous woods. Behind the main house is a fourbedroom guest house designed by famed architect O’Neil Ford, and a private swimming pool. Residents enjoy nearby fishing at the on-site Fish Camp, as well as skeet shooting, horseback riding, swimming, biking, tennis, hunting or camera safaris. World-class golf and shopping are less than 45 minutes away in San Antonio. For equestrians, horses thrive at a 43-stable horse barn with a full-size rodeo arena. If your imagination is stirred by the possibilities, visit www.picosaranch.net then call Rick Kuper at 210.240.8282 for more information or to schedule a visit.


Panther Creek Ranch T

Texas Hill Country Paradise

his wonderful compound in the heart of the Texas hill country has been used as a retreat by the same family for generations. Located in Kerr County near the town of Hunt, it is comprised of 362¹ acres with a mile of frontage on the Guadalupe River. Panther Creek originates at the property’s springhead on its northwest pasture and flows into the Guadalupe. The main house allows for generous and comfortable family living, and provides ample room for guests as well. Multiple structures and outbuildings on the property are suitable for use in a variety of ways, either to accommodate employees, caretakers, extended family or guests. There are endless outdoor entertaining and recreational opportunities afforded by expansive lawns with mature trees, a large patio, a fenced swimming pool with diving board and slide, a tennis court and river activities on the Guadalupe. The area is well-known for its varied wildlife and is prime for white-tailed deer during hunting season. Price upon request. Please call for additional information on this exceptional property.

Rodwin Architecture Creates Exquisite Custom Green Homes portfolio is equally adept with both traditional and modern homes. “Each house reflects the desires and personalities of the individual homeowner,” said Principal Scott Rodwin, AIA, LEED AP. “Our first job is to listen to our clients. Then we offer them back a unique artistic expression of who they are and how they want to live. We strive to make the process of creating their home into one of the most rewarding things they’ve ever done.”

J

enny Cloudman walked us through her new home, and pointed out with delight one beautiful feature after another. The gorgeous chandelier, the way the giant wall of windows exquisitely captured the view, the fantastic flow from one room to another, the perfectly laid out kitchen. She didn’t have to. The 4,200 square foot Contemporary Craftsman home by Rodwin Architecture was one of those rare houses where everything feels just right. “We simply love it”, she concluded. “We couldn’t have been happier with the process. I had so much fun!” It’s not everyday a firm hears a client describe the process of designing and building a dream home as “fun.” But at Rodwin Architecture, the clients’ experience is just as important as the result. Rodwin Architecture is a boutique architecture and interior design firm that specializes in custom green homes nationwide. The firm’s diverse

The process of creating a custom home is often described as daunting or frustrating, but Rodwin Architecture’s clients seem to have a consistently positive experience. “They really heard our priorities and presented us with wonderful solutions,” beamed homeowner Rob Armstrong. “Our house is exactly what we were hoping for.”

Another consistent quality of Rodwin Architecture’s homes is the incredible degree of energy-efficiency each home incorporates. Most of the houses have utility bills less than half of the national average, and some approach the coveted bar of a Net-Zero Energy use. The firm’s stunning, modern Edge House is one of the most beautiful and thoughtfully crafted homes in the country, and also achieved the rare LEED Platinum Certification, making it one of the greenest homes in America. Jenny and Rob apparently aren’t alone in their glowing praise of Rodwin Architecture. This rising star of the custom home world has garnered more than a dozen regional and national design awards for their work. We can’t wait to see what they do next.

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

I

f you ski, or love magnificent scenery, or crave the majesty of towering mountain peaks, one need only mention the name Breckenridge and tingles begin. This historic mining town-turned-urban delight has it all, beautifully packaged in a small town atmosphere with world-class amenities at your beck and call.

property broker. Add to this fly and surf fishing, kayaking, hut trips, biking horseback riding, rock climbing, golf, ice skating . . . the list of off-theslopes activities is almost endless. In fact, Breck has a number of national trophies, including Best Mountain Golf Course, Best Value for a Mountain Course and one of “America’s Best Golf Shops.”

Often called “The Perfect Mountain Town,” this quiet, charming all-season city boasts four awesome peaks beckoning experts and novices alike with over 2200 acres of skiing and riding. Its five terrain parks include the highest chairlift in North America, complimented by endless shopping, dining and nightlife.

Moviemakers have long used the 5 Peaks, North America’s longest ski mountaineering race, as a backdrop. Breckenridge is the setting for “Die Hard 2,” “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” and “Dumb and Dumber” (Don’t tell anyone, but even the shots of Aspen in that movie are actually Breck).

Fortunately, this Colorado real estate treasure chest in the heart of the Rockies also boasts 501 hotels/inns/bed&breakfasts (offering 20,002 pillows) and 300 days of sunshine. Sited in a U-shaped valley on the western slope of the Continental Divide, it offers residents an enviable view of the tree line division on Ten-Mile range to the west, the Divide to the east and south and the Blue River that flows through the center of town.

Most of Breck’s highways follow the migratory hunting routes used for eons by Northern Ute Indians who, in turn, were following animal trails. Gold was discovered (officially) in 1859 here and the boom started. It was said that “Breckenridge . . . turned out more gold with less work than any camp in Colorado.”

About that “slap” — back in 1859, the folks living in then-unnamedmining-camp wanted a post office. So they decided to smooze up to then-U.S. Vice President John C. Breckinridge by naming their town after him. It worked! The “No Man’s Land” episode was actually just a temporary blip with delightful reprocussions. A group of stalwart Breckenridge ladies stumbled on an old map that failed to mention the town. They concluded the U.S. never officially annexed the city. It was the map’s error, but the clever ladies “made hay,” persuading the Colorado Governor in 1936 to come and officially welcome Breckenridge into the Union. They made national headlines. The idea of independence caught on. Today “Colorado’s Kingdom” is still celebrated during the city’s “Kingdom Days” every June in Breck, as the city is affectionately called. Celestial skiing may be Breck’s most recognized draw. But for icy artisans, the International Snow Sculpture Championships every January finds the world’s finest with their chain-saws and picks at work on 20 ton blocks of the powdery white. Great way to view them — Breckenridge’s Hot Air Balloon Rides, ranked by the NBC Today Show in the Top 20 Things to Do in Your Lifetime, according to Breckenridge Associates Real Estate, the area’s leading

Now Colorado’s largest historical district, Breckenridge is still only 7 miles long and 2 miles wide, but it boasts 350 historical structures, many with delightful ghosts in residence. Clever folks that they were, those early settlers built false fronts on many of their buildings (still visible today) to give them a statelier look and to give more room for businesses to advertise. The old Gold Pan Saloon that opened in 1859 is still serving-up today, the oldest continuously-operated bar West of the Mississippi. Put all these highlights together and you can see why those who can afford the very best are naturally attracted to this incredible site. And with them come all the amenities they demand, including the finest in entertainment, shopping, education, cuisine, arts and culture. The Breckenridge Arts District, anchored by the Breckenridge Theater and Performing Arts Center, is enhanced by an ambitious public art plan. Breckenridge Associates Real Estate is a member of one of only two brokerages in Summit County to be admitted to LeadingRE (the prestigious “Leading Real Estate Companies in the World” coalition). This established national and international resource is a prestigious global network of 600 premier real estate firm, offering state-of-the-art technology and connections to every client.

Carmel

Written by B. B. Smith

“A village in a forest overlooking a white sand beach” — that is the storybook city called Carmel-by-the-Sea. Incredible natural scenery, a rich artistic population and Clint Eastwood as mayor — Carmel-by-the-Sea is an aesthetic Pacific Coast paradise in every sense of the word. Dogs are welcome almost everywhere, high heel shoes can’t be worn without a permit. This one-square-mile city is beautifully tucked away on a gently rising slope above a magnificent white Pacific Ocean beach. From the 6th Century on (it’s believed), ancient folks were drawn to this area, with the Spanish arriving in the mid-15th Century. They named this paradise after Our Lady of Mount Carmel. Mission Carmel actually contained the state’s first library and its founder, Father Serra, is called the “Father of California.” It passed into the hands of a French businessman who set up a brickworks and bakery. A dispute with another area called Carmel led to the addition of “by-the-Sea.” From the very beginning, Carmel lured artists, so aptly described by Jack London in his “The Valley of the Moon.” Swishing their brushes around were Mary Austin, Armin Hansen, George Sterling, and Clark Ashton Smith, to name just a few. Theater flourished, as did other venues and soon the roster of internationally recognized names spread across the arts. The poet George Sterling is credited with establishing the town’s literary base. Poet Robinson Jeffer’s Tor House, on a windswept barren seaside promontory is open to the public. Today Carmel’s Art, Bach and Shakespeare Festivals draw international audiences annually. A unusually strong emphasis on protecting and enhancing the city’s natural coastal beauty has given Carmel such a reputation, it often hosts delegation wanting to know how it retains such small scale authenticity in today’s world. Trees are so treasured and revered, existing ones cannot be removed for construction and barren lots must be planted. This unique municipality has no streetlights or parking meters; houses have names, not street numbers and no home mail delivery. Overnight delivery is possible, but only with geographical addresses,” a street name, the cross street name and the number of houses from that intersection.

This doesn’t (didn’t) seem to discourage celebrities from making their homes in Carmel, including Jean Arthur, Doris Day, Clint Eastwood, Joan Fontaine, Sinclair Lewis, Jack Lundon, John Madden, Upton Sinclair, Robert Louis Stevenson, Betty White and Ryan Phinny. And, as would be expected with such a notable population, the amenities demanded by those who can afford the very best are found in Carmel in abundance —shopping, entertainment, education and, of course, cuisine. Carmel is a haven of coffee shops and its proximity to fresh seafood, the fertile Salinas Valley and 75+ wineries in the famous Monterey County ensure the very best of dining. World class fishing, kayaking, surfing and scuba diving draw water sports lovers to the coast, while others head inland for exciting horseback riding, jogging, walking and bicycling along magnificent coastal bluffs. Nearby are renowned golf courses and tennis courts. Just a couple of hours south of San Francisco, the picturesque ambiance of Carmel extends throughout the town that is redolent with myriads of Hugh Comstock’s whimsical cottages and other delightful architectural styles. “Residents rule!” could be a city motto. Nearby cities provide all necessary commercial amenities, which allows Carmel to focus on keeping its own neighborhoods as livable and resident-friendly as possible. Oh, that no-high-heels-without-a-permit? Carmel treasures its picturesque atmosphere so much, cracked sidewalks and irregular pavement are considered crucial to the ambiance. This law is to prevent unappreciative visitors from suing the city if they trip and fall. But don’t worry. They have no jail. Or cemetery either. Well, there is one grave. For the town dog Pal. The city also used to prohibit selling and eating ice cream on public streets. But Clint Eastwood got that one overturned. Needless to say, property is so coveted in Carmel-by-the-Sea, those seeking to live here or nearby naturally turn to those respected “Purveyors of Fine Homes & Estates,” Alain Pinel Realtors, voted the Best Real Estate Company in Monterey County (among its other many awards). Owner/broker Judith Profeta heads a team that knows this unique city and surrounding areas intimately, who are as active personally in the community as they are professionally. Through them, new residents always find luxury properties that exceed their expectations.

old Beach, Oregon. This majestic 10,000+ square foot Cape Cod style home is perched gracefully atop 45 pristine forested acres with magnificent views up and down the Pacific Ocean coast as well as the famous Rogue River. 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.
