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. 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.

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.

MALIBU Written by B. B. Smith


M

The “Malibu Lifestyle” really says it all. This stunningly beautiful, affluent beachfront city in northwestern Los Angeles sits on a 27mile 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 topnotch 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.

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.

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 home was professionally decorated and is being offered furnished including many antique pieces and lighting.

W

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.
