Rodwin Architecture Creates Exquisite Custom Green Homes green homes nationwide. The firm’s diverse 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.

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.

“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.

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.

Rodwin Architecture is a boutique architecture and interior design firm that specializes in custom

Floored - You will be, by the magnificent creations of Schenck and Company. Written by Joe Doggett

G

reg Schenck stands by his product. And on it, for 30 years now as founder of Houston’s premier flooring company.

After leaving the University of Houston with a degree in marketing, Schenck partnered in the early 1980s with a friend and found himself “slab hopping,” bidding hardwood-floor jobs in half-built homes. Professionally, that was not going to be enough for this native Houstonian who claims to be “cursed by an eye that appreciates quality and perfection.” He bought out the partner, aimed higher, and has since ridden shotgun over a shop that produces artistic masterpieces – on which people also can walk.

Those who know Schenck best consider that self-described “curse” of his more of a gift, one that enables him to see opportunity where others see hurdles, beauty where others see rubbish. “I’m constantly looking for new things, new materials, new designs,” said Schenck from across a handmade table that also is his creation, “always looking for something to distinguish our product.” And distinguished it is, as say Houston’s finest homebuilders and most discriminating homeowners. His floors range from focal point to signature in a room, depending on their owners’ tastes, and those who know the company’s work can identify it instantly beneath their feet.


American luxury estates

Schenck enjoys another critical degree of separation from those who consider themselves his competition: He’s never turned down a client’s request except when budget became an issue. If it can be imagined, Schenck believes strongly, it can be created. Words fall well short of describing the intricacy of his floors, none of which is exactly like another. The modest showroom in which Schenck makes first impressions on clients is a gallery of exquisite samples, and dozens more hang on one long wall in the warehouse. Worth noting, Schenck doesn’t maintain an inventory of materials, “because every job is different.” The surprisingly large building, deliberately unimpressive from the street, is home to installation supplies, woodworking tools, people who are experts in the use of those items, and ample space for them to practice their craft. Only after the client’s plan is complete and the bid is accepted does Schenck set out to select his raw materials. He prefers to work with domestic woods – including everything from traditional oak to refurbished pallets to logs recovered from river bottoms – but has access also to a multitude of exotic woods. “I’d rather support the domestic economy,” said Schenck, “and work with wood from sustainable forests.” Schenck and Company politely and respectfully discourages clients whose interests lie more in cost than in custom or who do not appreciate the expertise that goes into a Schenck and Company finished product. “If you think a wood floor is a wood floor,” he said, “we’re not a good fit.” If, on the other hand, your vision is of elaborate inlays or planks that curve with the lines of an elegant staircase or wrap around a majestic column or feature inlays of stone or even rawhide, Schenck is your man. Schenck’s materials and designs afford his clients an unlimited number of options, but he maintains a keen sense of where to draw the line. “I can’t stand floors in which the installer threw in everything but the kitchen sink,” he said. “It doesn’t flow. It doesn’t fit the home.” In separating himself from that original partner, knowingly or not, Schenck concurrently separated himself from every other flooring company. He trusts his own instincts, his own tastes, and they have served him quite well. “I know what I like, and that’s what I do,” he said with a delicate balance of confidence and humility. “And I despise mediocrity.”

You’ll find no mediocrity under the Schenck and Company name. Nor compromise. Nor shortcuts. “We’re craftsmen,” Schenck summarized. “We do it right.” Step by step Every Schenck and Company floor begins with a client meeting, a chance for floor buyer and floor builder to establish an important, personal rapport. That leads smoothly into collaboration on design, materials, timeline and – gulp – budget. Once each of those items has been attended, Greg Schenck acquires the raw materials from which pure beauty will be extracted and placed proudly in a home or office or other instantly unique structure. Floors are cut individually, piece by piece no matter how many hundreds or thousands of pieces are involved, and laid dry to ensure perfect fit in a special section of the shop. From there, once Schenck and the customer are satisfied that the flooring is as ordered, the floor is disassembled and transferred to the location. Installers then put the puzzle together a final time, stain and finish it on site, and then stand aside as the homeowner takes his or her first slack-jawed steps across that new floor. The right people Schenck and Company employees a generous staff – not subcontractors – of expert carpenters and installers, a surprising few of whom were experienced in the flooring industry when they applied for their jobs. They can be taught installation and woodworking, Schenck said. More important to him is how passionate they are about their work and how devoted they are to it. “I’ve got the best installers in the business,” he said, noting that several of them have been with the company for 15-20 years. “We approach every job as if we were in our own home and we were spending our own money.”

Malibu

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

T

he “Malibu Lifestyle” really says it all. This stunningly beautiful, affluent beachfront city in northwestern Los Angeles sits on a 27-mile strip of prime Pacific coastline. “The Bu,” as surfers, locals and Alan Harper call it, is famous for its warm, sandy beaches that front the luxurious homes of many residents. Others live in the picturesque narrow canyons formed by the Santa Monica Mountains to the North and Topanga Canyon to the East. Malibu is easier to pronounce than “Humaliwo” — the Native American word for “the surf sounds loudly.” Drop the “Hu” and you’ll see where the new name derived, explains Marcus Beck of Prudential Malibu Realty, top Realtor to the rich and famous and wannabes looking for homes in Malibu. Spectacular scenery abounds at every turn. Here, as Marcus says, “nature provides an awesome playground.” Early Spanish influences are still strongly felt in this stretch that was once closely guarded private property. The Rindges, owners of the original 13,000 ranch, actually hired guards back in the late 1800s to keep trespassers out. They even defeated the Southern Pacific Railroad in court, stopping tracks from being laid. (Their home, the Rindge House, a National Register site, can be seen in Malibu Creek State Park.) Ah, but you can’t fight City Hall. The state, wanting to build the Pacific Coast Highway, went to court too, and won. But Rhoda May Rindge had the final word, of sorts. Widowed, she refused to sell off her land, and opened a small ceramic tile factory that grew to over 100 workers. Time and the economy won in the end. But Rhoda May’s distinctive Moorish/Arts & Crafts creations, known as Malibu tiles, now are found in luxury homes throughout Los Angeles and Beverly Hills. She is remembered. Oil tycoon J. Paul Getty opened his Getty Villa in Malibu, patterning it after the Villa of the Papyri at Herculaneum and other ancient sites. Now it’s a museum beyond compare. Actually, you could spend the next 20 years trying to see all the celebrities’ homes in Malibu. To name just a few of the past and current residents:

Barbara Streisand, Jeff Bridges, Charles Bronson, Mel Brooks, Pierce Brosnan, Gary Busey, Dyan Cannon, Johnny Carson, Cher, Dick Clark, Jackie Collins, Robert Conrad, Laura Dern, Bruce Dern, Danny DeVito, Robert Downey Jr., Robert Duval, Bob Dylan . . . and that just takes you through the letter D! Fortunately, tourist maps of celebrity homes are available. Malibu Colony has become one of the area’s most famous districts. A gated community with multi-million dollar homes on tiny lots, it offers some of the most breathtaking wide-span views of the Pacific Coast. Close to Malibu Colony is Malibu Lagoon, part of a 169-acre state park, and a top-notch spot for bird watching. Best time is spring and fall when migratory fowl make their annual trek to and from Alaska and Central America. Surfers from across the globe are attracted to Malibu’s World Surfing Preserves. This program was launched by the Save the Waves Coalition to designate and enshrine international waves surf zones and surrounding environments. Malibu’s Surfrider Beach was designated as the first World Surfing Reserve site to protect and preserve Malibu as an iconic surf site. Malibu is close to the “big city” of Los Angeles for easy commute, yet far enough away to retain that small town friendliness and helpfulness. Malibu’s schools are said to be the best in the Los Angeles area and Pepperdine University in Malibu has an international reputation. Answering to higher standards is typical of Malibu as it is with Marcus Beck of Prudential Malibu Realty. A third generation Malibu native, and lifelong Malibu resident, Marcus hit the ground running as a new Realtor by winning “Outstanding Performance First Year with Company” award. From that point on, Marcus Beck’s reputation as a Realtor never slowed. He has been a “Top Producing Realtor” consistently in a career that requires perseverance in a continually changing marketplace. His longtime presence among those for whom he is providing the perfect residence gives him the edge needed to see beyond a simple “deal.” Marcus can provide local knowledge and perspective of the upscale Malibu community, where it has been and where it is going, with insight only a true “insider” can possess.

CALIFORNIA LUXURY REPORT February 2013

California luxury home sales have a record year! The rising sales figures were especially true for the high-end markets, where sales of properties that sold over $5 Million were up almost 40%. The year-end figures show 697 sales in 2012 versus only 491 sales in 2011. Overall, luxury home sales (properties that sold over a million dollars) were up nearly 27%. This is the highest level in 5 years, which is a very positive sign for our luxury markets.* This rebound is due, in part, to a decline in foreclosure activity, limited inventory, lower mortgage rates and an increase in Buyer confidence. Our current market inventory of quality homes continues to be low but is on the rise . The result is a “window of opportunity” of high demand for luxury properties and a sellers advantage in achieving the highest market price when marketed professionally.

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. Worldclass 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.

The Texas Hill Country Guadalupe River Ranch


W

hether you’re a family patriarch or an investor wanting to enjoy the fruits of your labor the luxurious Texas Hill Country Guadalupe River Ranch offers a wealth of opportunities. Now operated commercially as a recreational ranch for families, it has become famous in Central Texas for world-class luxury nestled in a gorgeous Hill Country setting near the town of Comfort. “I think what makes this place special is that it’s a luxurious ranch environment that blends the best of the Hill Country with the indoor/outdoor nature of a family ranch,” says owner Chris Havens. “Everything is built with a personal, intimate feel.” Among the amenities that transcend the normal family ranch is an outstanding restaurant with indoor and outdoor kitchens, open to the public in its present use a ranch resort. Culinary classes are popular, held on the terrace with Koi ponds landscaped with colorful native Texas plants. Down the hill, you can fly-fish, swim, tube and canoe on your own, almost mile long, stretch of the Guadalupe River. Guests also can swim in the ranch’s lovely landscaped pool. No Texas ranch would be complete without a horse barn. The ranch offers an equestrian center, including four barns with six stall stables, and extensive irrigated pastures with Coastal Bermuda hay. “There’s so much here, everyday can be a little different,” Havens continues. “You really have to see it to understand the possibilities.’” The heart of the ranch is a casually elegant eight-bedroom main house with other hilltop guesthouses and cottages, a two-story gaming or guesthouse, and an 1870s farmhouse containing three suites and large living spaces. All have been updated to 21st century standards. Imagine

inviting friends and family for a week, or knowing that rooms are full of paying guests. Either way, the satisfaction is enormous. With its houses, recreation, restaurants and diversified activities, the property is practically a community to itself. Yet airports in Boerne and Kerrville are minutes away, and the San Antonio International Airport is a 45-minute drive. World-class shopping at the Shops at La Cantera and golfing at numerous award-winning courses is even closer. While a new owner may choose to enjoy the ranch privately and create a gold-plated legacy, the ranch lends itself to at least two commercial possibilities other than serving as a special events or conference destination. For one, its established tempranillo and viognier grape stocks could be expanded on the vast pastureland primed for grape growing and wine making. Says Havens, “What really makes this ranch perfect as a winery are all the amazing settings designed and built around enjoying wine. Turning this ranch into the next top Texas Hill Country wine destination is definitely a possibility.” Ironically, the spectacular resort complex also would make an ideal home for a health and wellness center. Says listing broker Rick Kuper, “The central U.S. doesn’t have anything with a setting perfect for addressing the mental, emotional and physical health we strive for. I believe a secluded, high-end health center in the Texas Hill Country would draw clientele from all over the country.” This elaborate mix of architecture and rugged nature seems to have sprung from the minds of Willie Nelson, Yves St. Laurent and Robert Mondavi, with Renee Fleming’s warmth and elegance. Perhaps the next imprint will be yours. To learn more, visit www.guadaluperiverranch.net or contact Rick Kuper with Kuper Sotheby’s International Realty at 210.240.8282.


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 gettogethers. 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’ wraparound 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.

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 full-service 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.
