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. 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.

Rookwood: :

I

nternational by design, this superb ten acre mountaintop estate offers an unobstructed 270 degree view of the valley below. This estate has had a love affair with two families: one, the client and one, the architect:a love affair with the mountain, the view and the home. This magnificent oriental inspired residence is a peaceful place surrounded by waterfalls, koi ponds and gardens that are stunning throughout the year. There is quite a story to tell about this exquisite residence on a mountaintop in Greenville, South Carolina. In the late 1980’s Ben Rook, a commercial architect, and CEO of Odell Associates, Inc. a global architectural firm, was approached by a prominent client to design a residence for his family. Ben did not do residential design work and declined, but this particular client was very insistent, and eventually

A Love Affair

Mr. Rook agreed. The site for the residence was atop Paris Mountain in Greenville, South Carolina. Using the Japanese design and theme of Feng Shui, Ben eventually created a central pavilion and five pavilions connecting each other. The final result comes from years of labor, and it was well worth the wait. As you round the bend in the road you do not immediately see the home. In fact it is a surprise that quietly and beautifully unfolds like a new spring flower. The entrance is framed gently and tastefully by seasonal flowers and the koi are your only greeters. The waterfall announces your arrival yet beckons you to stay. There is no doubt of the entrance ringed in dominant red. Upon entering, the magnificent view of the valley draws you immediately outside. The expansive grassy lawn unfolds to unending woods that stretch for miles below. Ben never


guessed that he would one day have the opportunity to own the home, but he did. Only the second owner, Ben and his wife, Becca, have enjoyed the house and gardens. “ What I love so about the house, “Becca says “ is the open feeling of the glass walls and sensing that the outside can come in.” “I can never grow tired of the incredible feeling of peace here.” The home has over 7,000 square feet with a magnificent indoor and outdoor swimming pool as well as a hot tub . Part of the evolution of the property under the care of the Rooks has been the magnificent gardens which are seasonal in nature and really quite low maintenance. You will notice more grassy areas mingled with plantings at the entry of the drive , and then transitioned to a more finished landscape above the waterfall. The green house is the envy of every gardener! The entire house takes advantage of the breathtaking view including all of the bedrooms, the living room, dining room, library, and the kitchen. The dining room and living room share a stunning open fireplace. A detached studio features a soaring ceiling and fireplace and could be used as an office or separate guest quarters.

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.

Naples

Written by B. B. Smith

I

t was a cold winter day . . . up north . . . in 1932 when Charles Lindbergh landed his plane in the sleepy Florida town of Naples. Residents probably didn’t bat an eye at seeing that famed aviator. After all, “Lucky” Lindbergh and his wife, Ann, often dropped in for supplies on their way to their nearby retreat. A mere 50+ years earlier, Naples — now known as the “Crown Jewel of Southwest Florida” — was founded by a Confederate general, a Kentucky Senator and a publisher who used his newspaper to tout the area’s wonderful mild climate (especially in winter!), incredible fishing and hunting opportunities, 10 miles of pristine white sand beaches . . . “just like the Italian Riviera!” The city’s name was a natural. When someone in passing likened the area to the sunny Italian peninsula, the promoters jumped on board, describing their own bay as “surpassing the bay in Naples, Italy.” It’s an obvious draw for the

rich and famous. Witness such property owners as Bill Gates, Donald Trump, Buzz Aldrin, Larry Bird, Neal Bootz, Robin Cook, Mike Ditta, Janet Evanovich, Dick Gephardt, Don Healy, Bob Segar, “Judge Judy” Sheinlin and Sean Hannity. The lure of owning one’s own quietly sophisticated piece of Gulf of Mexico real estate is hard to resist. According to U.S. News & World Report, Naples is one of “America’s 10 Best Undervalued Places to Live.” The secret, of course, to finding the right choice luxury site or home is selecting a Realtor who knows the area intimately, which is why John R. Wood, one of the oldest real estate firms on Florida, is also one of the largest and most successful. Nearby Everglades National Park and “Ten Thousand Islands” brings in many who are interested in EcoTourism. Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, Big Cypress National Preserve, Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge and Picayune Strand State Forest are testimony to the “we care” attitude of the area’s residents. And how it does draw those Ohio State alums! The OSU chapter had so many members, it earned Naples the honor of being home to the largest university alumni organization in the nation. For “Material Girls” and their ilk, Downtown Naples is a festival of unique shopping venues with a distinct focus on upscale markets, antiques, art galleries and handmade creations. Luxury residential communities abound, according to John R. Woods Realtors, which maintains a “fleet” of over 300 agents, each well versed in the exclusive opportunities sought by those who can afford the very finest of homes. Witness the more than 80 championship golf courses in the area, giving Naples full justification for calling itself “Golf Capital of the World.” Naples claims to have more holes per capita than any other city. Despite its emergence as a sophisticated city offering international cuisines, education, business opportunities and residential excellence, Naples has managed to retain its “sleepy Florida town” ambiance, a comfortable contrast to the hustle and bustle of larger cities. Unspoiled natural settings within easy access have helped keep this city grounded in a simpler past.

No one understands luxury like John R. Wood. Back in 1957, John and his wife Wanda had their sights set down the road. But, as he writes, “the beautiful beaches, quaint downtown and friendly atmosphere” of 1957 Naples stopped them in their tracks. John R. Wood was a lawyer who wanted to be a real estate agent. His vision fulfilled: the real estate company he started is now one of the largest and the oldest in Naples and John himself is a former President of the National Association of Realtors. His slogan “Walk On It Before You Buy” grew out his realization that too many folks thought of Florida lot sales involved swampland. That same sensitivity and concern for clients is the reason he encouraged his company and all the employees to become deeply committed to community projects and local involvement. This translates into the depth of intimate knowledge of his area that allows John R. Wood Realtors to immediately recognized compatible pairings of clients and available properties. “Legendary Service” became their slogan. As John often says, “In 1957 people moved to Naples for the climate, outdoor activities and small town atmosphere. Today, they move here for the same basic reasons. That’s Naples in a nutshell, still the best place on Earth to live.” For additional information on your real estate needs, please contact John R.

Greenwich Written by B. B. Smith

W

hen you rank in the top 12 “Best Places to Live in the U.S.” and #1 in the “Biggest Earner” category, well, Greenwich, CT, has earned the right to be mighty proud of itself.

The first accolade came from not one, but two raters: CNN/Money and Money magazine. Money magazine also ranked this town, named after Greenwich, England, as “Biggest Earner.” Greenwich was founded in 1640 by Elizabeth Fones Winthrop and the Greenwich Point was nicknamed (perhaps not to Elizabeth’s liking?) as “Elizabeth’s Neck.” Still, the area is rife with American Revolution history, including grand daring escapes from the British before they pillaged the town. Just outside town is Round Hill, a lookout point for the Continental Army during the Revolution. Now, from the 550 ft. peak, the Manhattan skyline is visible. As much fun for visitors are the many islands just off the Greenwich coastline. Calf Island and Great Captain Islands are bird sanctuaries. Island Beach (or Little 56


classic properties international

Captain Island) has the distinction of once being a site where the National Guard used to let adults and children fire machine guns into the water. Don’t look for that privilege now! However, on the lighter side, this island was also the site of performances by ventriloquist Paul Winchell and his dummy Jerry Mahoney. Even if you can’t fire machine guns anymore, you can picnic at Greenwich Point (call it Tod’s Point and you’ll fit in better with the locals. Tod was a previous private owner). From this vantage point, you can see Manhattan, Bronx and Queens bridge and hi-rises in New Rochelle, NY. Sailing, biking and rollerblading are all popular sports as is golf, with eight country clubs in the near vicinity. Oh, and don’t forget the Dorothy Hamill Rink in town. Dorothy is a native daughter, as are Glenn Close is also native daughter as are Shelley Hack, Bijou Phillips and Linda Purl. Tom Noonan is a native son.

Los Angeles Written by B. B. Smith

H

ow do you spell Los Angeles? L-U-X-U-R-Y

The City of Angels is very the definition of that word. From international high-end shopping on Rodeo Drive to spectacular homes of the stars, from the incredible beaches and mountains to the Dodgers, Clippers and Lakers, Los Angeles is one extraordinary place. In fact, if Los Angeles County were a state, it would be the fourth largest state in the nation! Everyone knows about Hollywood, Disneyland, movie studios and celebrity sightings. But did you know Los Angeles . . . • was founded (in 1781) by 14 families who named their new home El Pueblo de Nuestra Senora la Reina de Los Angeles de la Porciuncula (Town of Our Lady the Queen of the Angeles of the Small Portion). The town got bigger, the name got smaller! • presents, on average, more than 2,000 ethnic and regional festivals, fairs, parades and other special events every year. •

has, on average, 325 days of sunshine a year

has hosted seven Super Bowls

• allows you to surf, snowboard, ski and blaze a trail through the desert — all in the same day! • boasts the nation’s largest municipal park (Griffith Park = 4,014 acres) • has 475 miles of bicycle paths • has one of the world’s largest manmade recreational harbors (Marina del Ray = 6,000+ yachts)

Their clients will be in sterling company when they settle here. And these clients trust Teles Properties to let them in on insider “LALA Land” lingo secrets such as: • Local media refers to LA as “Southland” and • they are about to become known Angelenos (rhymes with casinos). • “PV” is the upscale beachfront town Palos Verdes • A “SigAlert” is declared if a lane of traffic will be closed for more than 30 minutes for an unplanned reason. • “June Gloom” is a thick fog that rolls onto most beaches in early summer. It’s gone by early afternoon. Angelenos think it’s funny when visitors write off an entire day at the beach just because of a little early fog other city at any other time in the history of civilization. And — not that you’ll ever need them — there are 157 certified plastic surgeons here. Extraordinary wealth has brought the best of everything to Los Angeles, according to leading real estate firm, Teles Properties, which takes a “boutique” approach to maintain a close personal relationship with clients seeking the very best in luxury residential opportunities. Twenty-two Nobel Prize winners have come from Los Angeles, including Linus Pauling and Richard Feynman. Add to that 39 Pulitizer Prizes. Los Angeles has more bookstores (300+) than any other U.S. city and the LA Museum of Art is the largest encyclopedic museum west of Chicago. Then there’s the Getty Center, Getty Villa, the Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens . . . the list goes on and on. Huntington Gardens, by the way, is one of the world’s most acclaimed gardens.

• has 19 golf courses and 344 miles of walking and hiking trails • is home to the inventions of beach volleyball, windsurfing and skateboarding Los Angeles is also where the hula hoop, Barbie Doll, Mazda Miata, DC-3, Mickey Mouse, the chaise lounge and the Space Shuttle were created. Los Angeles’ residents have tallied up their own impressive numbers. There are more artists, writers and film industry folks living and working in LA than any

LA is such a scenic chameleon, it’s been the actual film setting for movies supposedly set in Japan, Hawaii, Manhattan, New York (King Kong), New England, Casablanca (yes, that Casablanca) and even a planet for apes. In fact, Jerry Seinfeld’s New York apartment is actually in LA, at 757 New Hampshire Ave! LA’s port complex is the largest in the nation, serving 1.2 million cruise passengers a year. No problem finding somewhere for guests to stay, LA is the third largest hotel market in the nation. LA has 80 stage theaters and 300 museums. Education is a high priority with UCLA and too many other universities to mention. An intimate knowledge of this unique world is essential for those seeking a luxury residence. Teles Properties defines itself as high-end boutique unlike any other. The experience and know-how of its Realtors are guaranteed to provide an extraordinary level of service and professionalism. State-of-the-art technology assures clients the most up-to-date presentations will — with very personal, very passionate attention — match them to the homes of their dreams.

PHOENIX O

kay, the first thing you MUST know about Phoenix. It’s illegal to hunt camels here.

Not that you’re likely to find camels wandering around these days (outside of the Phoenix Zoo where one could take a ride on a camel.) However, it is true that during the Civil War, an Army experiment imported camels to move men and freight around desert areas like Phoenix. Some got loose so you never know . . . Even sans camels, Phoenix is a fascinating place — all 9,000 square miles of it. Flying into this “Valley of the Sun,” you’ll have no doubt of this. Phoenix seems to stretch out forever. All that elbow room is needed because, unlike most cities, Phoenix has more men than women. The largest capital city in the nation, Phoenix certainly has produced a lot of male dignitaries, including Barry Goldwater, William Rehnquist, John McCain and Carl Hayden. 72

But on the native distaff side, the list is equally, if not more, impressive, such as Sandra Day O’Connor. Other celebrities who call themselves Phoenicians, as residents are called, include Muhammad Ali, Charles Barkley, Glen Campbell, Hugh Downs, Wayne Gretzky, Shaquille O’Neal, Linda Ronstadt, Rick Shroder and Mike Tyson. Phoenix has become a music mecca, thanks to native Phoenicians like Buck Owens, Wayne Newton, Stevie Nicks, Duane Eddy, Marty Robbins, CeCe Peniston, Dierks Bentley and Alice Cooper. Established artists like George Benson, Steve Gadd, Bob Hoag, Joey DeFrancesco, Samuel David Moore have moved here, drawn by the lower cost of living and comfortable climate. TV series filmed here include Medium, The Brothers Brannagan, Alice and The New Dick Van Dyke Show. Well-known as a heavenly place to retire, Phoenix does offer more than its fair share of exciting activities and scenic views. Six major lakes are within an hour’s drive of this city that actually came to “modern” life in 1866 as a hay camp. But for more than 2,000 years, this very site was home to the Hohokam peoples who actually designed and built pathways for the canals that are used by the city today. Ironically those same canals caught the eye of a Civil War veteran who decided those ancient folks were on to a good thing. He built canals following the old system, much to the delight of the pumpkin growers who lived up the road in Pumpkinville. Seems pumpkins grew really huge alongside the canals. The Confederate veteran, Jack Swilling, wanted to name his town Stonewall, after the famed general. Squabbles ensued and finally everyone compromised on Phoenix for their city that had been born from the ruins of a former civilization. Phoenix’s exotic desert setting has attracted an extraordinary level of luxuryhome seekers and with them have come all the amenities that they demand — in education, arts, culture, shopping, cuisine, entertainment. Skyscraperflanked Central Avenue explodes outward with affluent lifestyles that have become the milieu of high-end real estate expert Sandra Baldwin of Baldwin Luxury Property Marketing.

and Phoenix Suns are just of many sports teams that draw fans from across the Southwest. Phoenix Art Museum is the Southwest’s largest destination for visual art from across the globe. The Heard Museum includes the Barry Goldwater Collection of 437 priceless historic Hopi kachina dolls. Such a wealth of lifestyle options is a must when you’re home to seven Fortune 500 companies, including Allied Waste, PetSmart and Apollo Group (which operates the University of Phoenix, the nation’s largest for-profit university). In fact, the University of Arizona College of Medicine branch in downtown Phoenix is one of the largest public universities in the nation. Intel based one of its largest sites here, as did Honeywell with its Aerospace Division. Other major bases are part of American Express, U-Haul, Best Western and U.S. Airways. When it comes to knowing Phoenix real estate, Sandra Baldwin is a “Portrait of Success, “ arguably Arizona’s most highly decorated and successful Realtor. Since Sandra Baldwin began her stellar career in luxury home sales in 1982, she has recorded over a billion dollars in sales. That’s “Billion” — with a “B.” For the past two decades, Sandra has been her company’s most productive agent. She has been ranked as high as 7th internationally out of tens of thousands of real estate agents. Sandra has also been recognized by both the Phoenix and Scottsdale Board of Realtors for lifetime achievement. In order to deliver on its promise of excellence, Sandra’s Baldwin Team has assembled a group of consummate real estate professionals who each specialize in a key set of tasks. There is no longer any room in the luxury home market for the “jack-of-all-trades” agent. No one person can be the master of today’s complicated and ever changing real estate transaction. Each area of the profession (marketing, escrow, legal compliance, etc.) demands an expert, someone who is not distracted by trying to change focus every few minutes. The Baldwin Team is built around this formula.

Impressive residential communities abound around Phoenix, but it takes a Realtor with true insight, such as Sandra Baldwin, to facilitate those perfect matches that make for truly luxurious living. Her motto says it all: “We pair expertise with sophistication.” Sophistication and “fun!” she should add. There are those famous “Phoenix Lights” UFO sightings. Mountain ranges both surround the city and run right through it, offering not only spectacular views, but also myriads of sports and recreation venues. The Arizona Diamondbacks, Arizona Cardinals
