MAINE Written by Brenda Beust Smith

M

aine has long been a mecca for the rich and famous — as well as for those who simply demand the “good life” in the place they call home. From Martha Stewart to John Travolta, Patrick Dempsey, Kirstie Allie, Glen Close, and John Ford, the almost endless range of easy-access opportunities is an irresistible draw. “Kodak-moments” are always so close at hand — fall color that has to be seen to be believed, majestic mountains, 3,500 miles of glaciercarved beaches (more coastline than California and Florida combined) to the most sophisticated urban cultural and educational offerings in the nation. And yet, alongside comparable (if there are such) lifestyles across the nation, Maine’s property values are amazingly reasonable, a true irony given elegant luxurious homes and communities in the portfolios of high end luxury brokers such as Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty. 4


American luxury estates

Dating back to 1632, Maine was once part of Massachusetts, as well as part of the historic Louisiana Purchase, becoming its own state in 1820. Around 90% of the nation’s lobsters are caught in Maine, a destination for seafood lovers. But also, more blueberries are grown here and more moose live here than in any other state. Maine’s springs are the nation’s leading source for sold bottle water. And don’t forget Maine is home to 63 lighthouses, the nation’s largest toothpick manufacturing plant and, of course, Kennebunkport,

famous for drawing so many politicians and celebrities. Acadia National Park is second only to Yellowstone as the nation’s most popular national parks. Maine has easily progressed from its tradition as a major historical player in the development of this country to a source of continuing current major political and financial vibrations. And yet Maine has never lost the peace and tranquility conveyed in those all-so-true pictures of its rolling countryside. But for the Maine resident, perhaps the lure is more tangible. Maine offers some of the nation’s best fishing, sailing and other water sports in its incredibly beautiful waters. Thousands of islands, protected harbors and miles offer gorgeous waterfront living. Tired of watching whales? In a blink of an eye, the scenery changes and some of the finest ski resorts in the world offer exciting challenges as does white water rafting and myriads of other winter sporting opportunities. Only slightly farther afield, all of New England and other internationallyfamous East Coast recreational, business and political centers are within easy commute. Yet the state has helped ensure its small town atmosphere comfortably coexists with the highest level of interest in education, politics, finances and the other daily engines that run society today. Combine that with the fact that crime rates and property taxes are amazingly low and as much as 90% of the state remains forested. That’s why it’s known as the Pine Tree State. The eclectic “Mainer” population has expanded from the most sophisticated of all the native American tribes to the rugged “Yankees” to the multi-cultured citizens of today. Maine truly is, as some say with the most complimentary of intent, “like living in a foreign country within the United States.” Always the famous Maine sense of humor abounds. Work in the Rockefeller family...long time playground in places like Prouts Neck, Camden, Rockport and the Bar Harbor region. They have been stewards of the Maine coast for generations. Many Rockefellers still enjoy Maine as a summer destination. 5

olf, tennis, horseback riding...these recreations can be found at many resorts and even in a handful of residential communities. But team roping?

“By far it’s the most difficult sport I’ve ever tried,” says Tom Spitsnaugle, co-founder of a website that presents training videos by world-class ropers. “With two horses, two riders and an unpredictable steer, you’ve got five brains and that means anything can happen. It happens very fast; you have to be able ride your horse and handle a rope.” As it happens, Tom Cusick, owner and developer of the 1,000-acre Estancia gated residential community, is an avid team-roping competitor

along with friend, country recording star and Estancia homesteader George Strait. This explains the presence of a world-class equestrian center and arena on the grounds where they and friends can improve their methods. The arena’s professional quality and features such as an arena balcony, perfect for capturing shots of bucking horses and steers, persuaded Spitsnaugle – a successful Dallas businessman in an earlier life – to select Estancia as one of several arenas nationwide in which to shoot training videos and action vignettes. He and a crew of champion team ropers, Jake Barnes, Clay O’Brien Cooper, Bobby Harris, Cesar de la Cruz, Charles Pogue and Bret Beach, from throughout the United States spent several days in late October and early February shooting at the facility. As you can see by viewing samples at www.totalteamroping.com, it’s


American luxury estates

an exciting sport. The potential earnings are considerable and these cowboys expect the best in facilities and locales. Plus, they enjoy the plush, but rustic proximity of the arena’s private cantina. Since team roping is catching on nationally and worldwide – Spitsnaugle says up to 300,000 people globally are estimated to participate in the pricey sport. – Estancia’s covered equestrian center and cedar riding ring may add to the community’s luster for adventurous homebuyers. However, for most families, Estancia’s other recreational offerings more than meet their requirements. They seem to be everywhere you look: There’s the 400-acre private lake, Lake Estancia, stocked with bass and catfish, perfect for fishing and canoeing. There’s the 200 acres of greenbelt with 10 miles of tree-lined riding, biking and hiking trails, the football and soccer fields and the lakeside baseball diamond. The Lakeside Pavilion, with a 1,400 square foot patio and handcrafted stone fireplace, is a spectacular place for family picnics. Wide-open spaces are perfect for Estancia’s skeet deck, perched among trees. (Help your child to excel at it – some colleges offer scholarships in the sport!) Or, you can practice your swing on the threepar golf course in preparation for play at the adjacent Resort at Tapatio Springs, which offers golf and dining memberships. From its upper elevations, some of the highest in Kendall County, miles of rolling Hill Country terrain surround Estancia. Developer and Boerne businessman Cusick enjoyed the property with his family as part of the larger Thunder Valley Ranch he purchased in the ‘90s as a return to an

early family ranching tradition. In 2006 he decided to share Estancia’s lifestyle, creating a private, family-friendly, gated residential community emphasizing an active but luxurious lifestyle. San Antonio’s premier luxury real estate company, Kuper Sotheby’s International Realty, has exclusive marketing and sales rights for the development’s 29 remaining lots, and is also working with preferred builders designing custom homes for buyers. Private architects and builders are also welcome. Of the original 75 homes sites, the 29 remaining lots range from 3 to 25 acres in two phases. Recently sold is a 5,693 square foot custom home by Burdick & Christofilis, originally priced at $1,795,000. Minimum home size in Estancia is 3,000 square feet. Whether the Total Team Roping film sessions bring you to Estancia or you’re more into dropping a fishing line, please call Dudley Hays at 210.822.6880 for a private tour.
