The awards keep piling up for Big Canoe — a lush, mountain community an hour north of Atlanta.

For residents, it’s easy to see why. Big Canoe is a place where you can breathe real air, walk among trees and flora and behold the fleeting wonder of a deer crossing your path. The community — 8,000-plus acres with 2,000 acres of usable green space — is dynamic and thriving, as evidenced by new neighborhoods sprouting up within its gates, and an ever-widening stock of new homes and homesites providing prospective buyers with more and more choices in size, design and amenities. Big Canoe has become a favorite weekend home of city dwellers and suburbanites with busy schedules, as well as an ideal place for growing families that recognize the need for a balanced life. As its sterling reputation continues to spread, Big Canoe is also drawing second-home and early-retiree buyers from throughout the Southeastern U.S. and beyond. The majority of Big Canoe dwellers use their homes as a primary residence, giving the community the feel of a small town. The more than 50 social clubs — from birders to wood carvers, creative writing to billiards — are robust and growing. Many of Big Canoe’s award-winning amenities cater to active lifestyles, be it fishing on trout-stocked lakes; playing the spectacular 27-hole championship golf course that winds its way through hilly terrain; using the state-of-theart fitness center; the tennis center; or luxuriating at one of the swim clubs. Or maybe it’s just taking a leisurely walk on one of the more than 20 miles of trails. Big Canoe — an hour from Atlanta, but it feels like a

million miles away. — Eric Snider

Montauk Property Owners

Expand the Possibilities of Oceanfront Living


or immediate release…New York investor Henry Druker and Matt Goldman, the co-founder behind the highly successful Blue Man Group theatrical productions, have embarked upon a creative real estate venture in Montauk, NY, the seaside hamlet fast emerging as the “it” spot for investment in the Hamptons. The neighbors have created a virtual merger of two prime, contiguous 1 ½ acre lots to provide an exceptional oceanfront land opportunity on Montauk’s coveted Gold Coast that counts Robert DiNiro, Jann Wenner, Steven Roth and Ralph Lauren as neighbors. The merger of the two adjacent 1½ acre parcels results in an oversized oceanfront land offering with 186’+/- of pristine ocean frontage. With an ideal elevation of 55’, the expanded setting is the perfect location for a spectacular beachfront residence commanding some of the area’s most dramatic ocean vistas.

The property merger was the creative work of Druker, a long-time resident of East Hampton, NY, and Goldman a long time resident of Montauk. Druker owns his lot in partnership with Red McCombs, the co-founder of Clear Channel Communications and former owner of the San Antonio Spurs and Minnesota Vikings. They together envisioned the intrinsic value of a larger ocean front site - flexibility for development, more generous setbacks and greater preservation of the open spaces and vistas that distinguish Montauk and its landscape. Druker and Goldman each recognized that their neighboring individual lots would be even more special if combined. To imagine the possibilities for development within all town specifications, Druker and Goldman commissioned the prestigious East Hampton architectural firm of Fleetwood & McMullan, LLC to create a site plan for the newly expanded 3-acre parcel. A thoughtful plan was conceived for a spectacular, up to 10,000 sq. ft. home overlooking a 60-foot ocean side

pool and short, meandering private path to the magnificent beachfront. The plan is available for consideration by prospective buyers. The unique features of this property offering will undoubtedly appeal to savvy buyers. The building envelope conforms to all East Hampton Town specifications, the governing body over Montauk development. This is an important attribute in an area that fiercely protects its natural lands, wildlife and waterfront. Druker had previously preserved and moved a Fleetwood designed home from a neighbor’s lot to his own in the town of East Hampton. Druker and Goldman engaged the support of town officials for the combined lot in Montauk while forming their partnership. The combined lot offers the new buyer a larger home and more dramatic ocean side pool than what could be built on either lot individually, while creating less density and development than what would occur if each lot were individually developed. The result is more privacy, open space and generous set backs to neighboring properties. Since the 1920’s preservationists have buffered Montauk against over development establishing abundant parkland, natural reserves and wildlife sanctuaries. Vacant property is relatively scarce in Montauk where nearly 2/3 of the land has been preserved. Today, Montauk maintains its unique blend of natural rugged coastline beauty peppered with eclectic housing opportunities ranging from dramatic oceanfront villas to quaint beach cottages. Montauk has enjoyed a real estate renaissance of late where deep-sea fisherman, avid surfers, artists, local residents, celebrity homeowners and summer residents peacefully coexist and mutually enjoy and respect the serenity, salty ocean air and relaxed vibe of this enclave at the easternmost tip of Long Island. The Druker-Goldman property is a significant offering in an area where 3 prime ocean front acres are sought after and scarce. Offered at $12,500,000. For more information, contact RPLG International at 713-302-0555.

Lonesome Ridge at Lonesome Valley, Cashiers, North Carolina


efore Cashiers developed into the quaint mountain village that it is today, the Cherokee knew this plateau at 3,500 feet as a cool, lush campground that figured prominently in their seasonal migrations. Many others have since discovered the natural wonders of this temperate forest nestled high upon the ancient slopes of the Blue Ridge Escarpment. Bisected by the Eastern Continental Divide and protected by thousands of surrounding acres of the Nantahala National Forest, Cashiers is cherished as a unique mountain destination offering nationally ranked golf courses, award winning restaurants, many notable communities and charming antique shops. Current development is balanced with hundreds of miles of hiking trails and fly fishing streams, countless waterfalls, magnificent granite faces, and enough adventure to satisfy any outdoor enthusiast. Cashiers is located in southwestern North Carolina, in the southern Appalachian Mountains, just north of the common boundary point of North Carolina, Georgia and South Carolina. Driving time is within three hours of Atlanta, Charlotte, Chattanooga, Augusta and Columbia and less than five hours from Knoxville and Birmingham. Nearby airports include Asheville (1.25 hours), Greenville (1.75 hours), Atlanta (3 hours) and Charlotte (3 hours). Just two miles east of the center of Cashiers, Lonesome Valley enjoys a rich history dating back to 1895 when E.H. Jennings acquired over 35,000 acres in the mountains of western North Carolina. Following the development of several prestigious inns along regional lakes, the Jennings family retained 800 acres of the original holdings as their own private retreat. In 2004 the family decided to invite other families and friends to share their mountain cove, affectionately known as Lonesome Valley. And so this vibrant community began. Founded upon the principles of true conservation, Lonesome Valley successfully blends thoughtful development with the protection of its vast natural resources. Over one third of the Valley is forever preserved as common green space, utilizing stream corridors, meadows and forests as natural buffers between generously sized estates. With sufficient golf and traditional country club amenities offered by other area communities, Lonesome Valley has instead focused on hiking, fishing, boating, swimming and other nature-based, family-friendly activities. Simplicity, rest and recreation combine with fine dining (at Canyon Kitchen with James Beard Award Finalist, Chef John Fleer) and festive gatherings to create the ethos of this community. Based on the enduring commitment to purposeful excellence established five generations ago, Lonesome Valley will continue to provide joyful family memories for generations to come. Lonesome Valley is framed by Cow Rock Mountain and Laurel Knob along with other ridges that form the largest box canyon in the East. At 4,200 feet atop Cow Rock Mountain exists Lonesome Ridge, a 90+ acre park-like estate overlooking the valley below. With unsurpassed vistas in every direction, flat and gently sloping topography, paved roads and utilities already established, and several well groomed homesites, this estate can be preserved as a single large tract or subdivided into as many as six individual parcels. Several trails link a variety of viewing decks, wildflower meadows, picnic and gaming areas on manicured lawns along with walking connections to Lonesome Valley to the west and Panthertown Valley to the northeast. Panthertown Valley, comprising over six thousand acres of Nantahala National Forest, is known as the “Yosemite of the East” with its signature granite faces, trout streams and miles of trails for hiking and mountain biking. Lonesome Ridge is a pinnacle property with exceptional characteristics, providing unique opportunities to invest in family, friends and the future.


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.

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


acksonville, FL, may not rank as one of the “largest” cities in the nation — but, in fact, it is. “THE” largest that is. At over 840 square miles in size, Jacksonville tops the chart in physical size in the continental U.S. Named for U. S. President and Civil War General Andrew Jackson — who, by the way, never visited Jacksonville — Jax, or J’ville as it is often called, traces its site roots back to 2500 BC. The nation’s oldest pottery remnants (circa 2500 BC) were found on Black Hammock Island. For a long time Jacksonville was known as Cow Ford (for cattle brought across the St. Johns River). Another nickname, River City, reflects the natural beauty of the St. John’s River and the Atlantic Ocean. The Dames Point Bridge is the world’s largest concrete cable-supported bridge. Boating, fishing, all the water sports draw year-round participants. The city also boasts the nation’s largest urban park system. Which brings up golf facilities! The PGA Tour is headquartered in a Jacksonville suburb, site of The Players Championship. ‘Nough said! Just five minutes from downtown Jacksonville is Tree Hill Nature Center with 50 acres of varied terrain trails and an international-draw Butterfly Festival. Jacksonville Arboretum & Gardens drew the accolade “a community project of a size and scope never before undertaken by a volunteer organization.” Built on an old zircon mine-turned-dump, the 128+ acre, ravine-filled site’s famous tortoise area resulted from the need to move a gopher tortoise colony to make room for a parking lot. Jacksonville’s Great Fire of 1901, the largest in the southeast history, practically destroyed the town in eight hours. The fiery glow could be seen as far as Savannah and smoke plumes all the way up to Raleigh. A silver lining appeared, however. In the 1910s, re-built Jacksonville attracted over 30 silent film studios. Hollywood eventually lured them away, but that wonderful period is still preserved at the Jacksonville Silent Film Museum, established in the old Norman Studios. Then the Navy moved in, along with a huge banking community, resulting in amenities expected by those who can afford the very best, explains The Legends of Real Estate, one of Jacksonville’s leading and most respected companies for high-end residential properties. Historic Riverside-Avondale area was named one of the nation’s “10 Greatest Neighborhoods.” Two Jacksonville high schools, Stanton College Preparatory School and Paxon School for Advanced Studies regularly appear in the Top 10 of

Newsweek’s list of the country’s top public high schools. Colleges and universities abound. Among the notables who live (or have lived) here include rock legend Ronnie Van Zant (there’s a park named in his honor), Pat Boone, the Allman Brothers Band, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. The Old Sea Turtle Inn and Pete’s Bar in John Grisham’s The Brethren are in the Greater Jacksonville area. If you’re a fan, he often stays at One Ocean Resort. Jacksonville remains a popular draw for movie makers, witness such locally-filmed movies as The Manchurian Candidate, Creature from the Black Lagoon, The New Adventures of Pippi Longstocking, Brenda Starr, G.I. Jane, The Devil’s Advocate, Why Do Fools Fall in Love, The Year of Getting to Know Us, The Ramen Girl and Like Dandelion Dust, as well as many made-for-TV movies. As with education, cuisine, shopping and other venues so necessary for upscale residential living, Jacksonville’s high-end community has demanded, and achieved, excellence in all its arts and cultural offerings. Jacksonville’s Springing the Blues is one of the oldest and largest blues festivals. Its Jazz Festival and Film Festival are the nation’s second largest such venues. Elvis’ first indoor concert was in the historic Florida Theater. Local magistrates attended to make sure his shaking didn’t get too racy. Perhaps one of the most picturesque gatherings is the Blessing of the Fleet. J’ville is also home to the U.S.’s oldest skating arena, Kona Skatepark. Among the many internationally notable cultural offerings is the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens’ Meissen porcelain exhibit —one of the world’s three most comprehensive such collections. More into sports? The Gator Bowl has been a national football fixture since 1946. The Florida Gators-Georgia Bulldogs game is known as the “World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party”! The Jacksonville Jaguars give its city the distinction of being the nation’s smallest television market to host an NFL team. The U.S. National 15K Championship Gate River Run is the nation’s largest road race of its distance. With such a diverse spectrum from which to choose a residence, highend property brokers Selby Kaiser and Linda McMorrow, founders of The Legends of Real Estate, appreciate that their sophisticated, welleducated clients expect — and need to be provided — a team of dedicated consultants-of-integrity to help make the best decisions. They offer an “insider” view of the Greater Jacksonville area and the very latest in market research and search conveniences.

Islip and Babylon in Suffolk County, New York, are among the very fortunate few, according to Jim A. Netter of Netter Real Estate, premier Long Island property brokers. No wonder Suffolk was listed by Forbes Magazine as the fourth richest county in America. Stretching northeast into the Atlantic Ocean, Long Island’s exquisite Suffolk County residential communities enjoy the same treasured settings as the area’s original settlers from Suffolk County in England. Ironically that name means “southern people” (as opposed to the northern folks of “Norfolk). Attracted by the area’s temperate weather, abundant clean water and rich soil, these early settlers quickly gained a strong reputation as farmers extraordinaire — even for tulips and dahlia bulbs in Babylon. Within Suffolk County are more lighthouses than are found in any other county in the nation, with 15 of the original 26 still standing. Islip was named for its founder’s English homeland, Islip, just north of Oxford, the birthplace of Edward the Confessor. One guess at the name’s origin is “slippery hill.” Located on Long Island’s south shore, Islip was home to Jacob Ockers, the internationally known “Oyster King” at the turn of the century, and his home is on the National Register of Historic Places. Ockers’ Blue Point Oyster Company brought such renown to the area, New York State passed a law forbidding any oysters to be called “Bluepoints” unless they came from the Great South Bay. Until around 1915, Islip streets were paved using oyster shells. The 2.41 square-mile city of Babylon owes its unusual name to the mother of early settler Nathaniel Conklin who, in 1803, moved “to the hills” to what is now East Main St. at Deer Park Ave, a site now on the National Register of Historic Places. One story says his mother picked the name Babylon because she didn’t want to live there. Probably the name became even more appropriate in her eyes when she learned next door would be the American Hotel and Tavern. Ancient Babylon’s name was perhaps

an adaption an ancient Akkadian word for “Gateway of God” or the Hebrew word for “confusing” or “to confuse.” Walt Whitman once taught school in Babylon, but charges were brought against him and some of his students for “rowdy behavior” by the farmer who owned the land where the new King Kullen stands on Merrick Road. In the ‘20s and ‘30s, Babylon was as popular a resort for the rich and famous as the Hamptons are today. Fred and Adele Astaire were among the celebrities as was Rudolph Valentino whose movie “Vitagraph” used what is now Farmingdale Road (Route 109) for a chase scene. Among the Babylon historical treasures are its town hall, the Nathaniel Conklin House, Sisters of St. Dominic Motherhouse Complex and the Frank W. Smith House. Islip visitor George Washington stayed in Sagtikos Manor in West Bay Shore, one of the many mansions built by wealthy summer visitors from NYC. William K. Vanderbilt’s estate is now Dowling College. Singer Sewing Machine magnate Admiral Bourne’s home is now St. John’s University. Eight nearby national wildlife refuges testify to the area’s appreciation of its natural resources. Its outer barrier beaches and hundreds of square miles of waterways have resulted in a longtime history of maritime surveillance and protection. As one of the nation’s richest counties and one of the original Province of New York’s original counties, Suffolk offers its ten towns — including Babylon and Islip — the high level of amenities demanded by those who can afford the very best in lower and higher education, entertainment, cuisine, shopping, arts and culture. An insider’s expertise is invaluable when searching for just the right luxury home. This is what Jim Netter’s expert team offers prospective homeowners in the Islip and Babylon areas.

Bay Head / Mantoloking

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


hen you’re one of the most sought after areas in a region famous for luxury on the grandest scale, it really doesn’t matter if your name might translate “frog ground.” Especially when it’s equally possible that your sobriquet, Mantoloking, could also mean “sandy place” or “land of beautiful sunsets.” The exclusive high end communities of Mantoloking and its sister city Bay Head are part of Jersey Shore’s “Gold Coast,” reigning over Barnegat Peninsula, which some call an island and others call a peninsula. Again, given the extravagant lifestyles of the rich and famous on this tiny strip of land, does it really matter? Katherine Hepburn and Richard Nixon both summered here, while Peter Kellogg, Roger King and John Wanamaker could be found in nearby Bay Head. One of the most sought-after residential destinations for those who can afford the very best, Barnegat Peninsula derived its name from a Dutch word meaning “Inlet of the Breakers,” referring to the turbulent waters of the rather treacherous (and magnificent) inlet that separates it from Long Beach Island. The 20-mile peninsula with its exclusive enclaves keeps a very low profile, letting the beautiful views and enviable amenities demanded by those who can afford the very best speak for themselves, explains Clayton & Clayton Realtors, Inc., the area’s oldest, premier real estate brokerage firm. If anything can draw the eye away from those captivating water views, it’s the array of Shingle-style seashore houses, many of which are now on the National Register of Historic Places. The use of shingles was, in part, a means of achieving a weathered look and to obtain this on new

materials, some architects had the cedar dipped in buttermilk, dried and then installed, achieving an enviable grayish tinge. They also gave the illusion of a great enveloped, flowing horizontal space. A sense of history is everywhere, from the old Mantoloking Golf Course (1897) where golf was played with a red ball (easier to see on sand) to its expansion to a “Golf and Yacht Club,” then to the “Yacht Club,” home to ten Olympians. The famous crash of the German’s dirigible, The Hindenburg, happened at nearby Lakehurst Naval Air Station. Bay Head’s Ocean County Historical Museum notes activity in this area as far back as 1000 BC and recalls how the famous pirate Captain William Kidd worked these waters. About the time he was hanged for his picadillos, in the early 1700s, this area’s settlement was beginning in earnest and it became a major stomping grounds for the American Revolution and the War of 1812. With such an intricate and influential history, it is no wonder that the area’s oldest real estate firm should also be the go-to-broker for an intimate knowledge of the local property market. Clayton & Clayton Realtors, Inc., was established in 1930 by Stanley C. Clayton and the fourth generation of his descendents are still in charge today, with a fifth generation in the “grooming” arena. The family business is still dedicated to handling clients’ properties and property searches “quietly” while publically they “just simply produce.” Combining knowledge and local connections, extremely aggressive and protective of their elite clientele, the company is recognized as the finest, most reputable & most productive in its market.

San Antonio

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


an Antonio may now be the seventh largest city in the United States, but its strong Southwest and Mexican ambiance, combined with incomparable luxury and the traditional friendliness of Texans, make it one of the most interesting places in the nation to live. The flags of five nations have flown over this historic city: Spain (15191685 and 1690-1821); France (1685-1690); Mexico (1821-1836); Texas as a Republic (1836-1845); Texas in the Confederacy (1861-1865), and Texas in the US (1845-1861 and 1865-present). A strong sense of this rich, colorful and never-boring history pervades every aspect of life in San Antonio, from the historic sites (such as the incomparable Alamo) to its ancient and still deeply religious missions, to festivals and fetes too numerous to mention. Always there is that overwhelming sense of humor, such as in the Battle of Flowers where women throw flowers at each other in mock memory of the many fights that took place in the area. Perhaps nowhere in the nation has the enterprising citizenry been more successful than on the San Antonio Riverwalk. Once an eyesore, the river that courses through the inner city is now a pure delight that draws not only tourists from across the globe, but regularly its own residents who appreciate the ambiance and fun that pervades every watery turn. The Kuper real estate family has been a integral part of this historical journey. So small wonder that Kuper Southeby’s International Realty has risen to the pinnacle of the San Antonio’s luxury real estate market. Award-after-award have reinforced this top rating as Kuper realtors are

as enthusiastic about community involvement as they are about San Antonio’s exploding real estate market and economy. A university-rich city, San Antonio has prided itself on being “culturallydiverse.” In doing so, it has developed an extensive list of businesses, organizations, museums and projects recognized internationally for expertise and excellence. Perhaps the city is best known for its incredible cuisine, the result no doubt of satisfying the demands of both the generations of highly successful families and the wealthy, successful “newcomers” who have arrived over the most recent centuries. Luxury residential real estate has expanded along with outstanding entertainment, including sports venues, including golf courses, that draw the rich and famous. Of course the San Antonio Spurs basketball team members live here. Others who have, or do, call the San Antonio area home include Lara Flynn Boyle, Jackie Earle Haley, Bruce Mcgill, Henry Thomas, John Schneider, Malik Rose, Johnny Bush, Vicki Carr, Holly Dunn, Emily Robison, Heloise, Shelly Duvall, Jared Padalecki and Madeline Stowe. San Antonio is the gateway to the famed Texas Hill Country . . . the “Heart of Texas.” Kuper Sotheby’s International Realty’s expertise ranges all over this region, often nicknamed “Texas’s backyard playground.” Spectacular lakes, amazing vistas, rolling hills and “drop-off” valleys, just a short drive from San Antonio, offer places to hike, hunt, swim, camp or just “chill out.” It is, as Kuper realtors point out, a “state of mind” that you can call home whether your preference is for luxury city living or farm and ranch or the full range of residential possibilities in-between!

Carmel-by-the-Sea, California Built in 1924, Casa Bella was remodeled in 2006, transforming the 1,100 square foot home into a four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath, 4,483 square foot Mediterranean estate. Honoring the distinct characteristics of the home, John McMahan, the contractor for the house, worked diligently to re-purpose existing materials such as the interior stone walls, which were the home’s original exterior walls. The home’s 200-year-old Italian tile roof was imported directly from Italy and the front porch columns, walkways, and retaining walls have been designed with a gestural nod to the 1920s. A breakfast nook with accompanying stone fireplace, welcomes bright mornings while a Viking range adds a hint of modernity while providing ability to prepare for larger parties. The ample master suite, located on the main floor, allows residents to bask in comfort and sophistication with its stone fireplace and dual French doors exiting to a gorgeous outdoor retreat.

Bel Air

The Billionaire’s Secret While everyone knows about the luxury markets of Manhattan, London, and Monaco, fewer are aware that one of the most prized luxury real estate markets among the world’s billionaire elite is Los Angeles and the exclusive enclaves of Bel Air and Holmby Hills. Just recently, the luxury mansion known as Fleur De Lys sold for $102 million (USD) among a bidding war of multiple buyers. Considered a record sale by Los Angeles standards, at only $2,000 per square foot, it’s an extraordinary value compared to other international luxury markets. Additionally, there have been 2 other recent Bel Air/Holmby Hills home sales of $75 million and $85 million. Beverly Hills also continues to be in high demand with wealthy buyers. It’s important to note that the guard-gated communities of Beverly Park, Malibu Colony, and Fremont Place have demonstrated new record sales as well. Los Angeles offers a year-round mild climate, an internationally renowned cosmopolitan lifestyle, and tremendous values in real estate, especially when compared to other major world cities. The region also provides strong investment advantages such as the robust commercial economy of a world-class city, no VAT taxes, and excellent foreign ownership rights. The Southern California architectural landscape includes beachfront villas, grand estates, historic properties, city homes, and sleek high-rise apartments. Luxury homes and apartments range anywhere from $1 million to over $100 million.

Tir Na Nog – An Exceptional Beach Front Retreat Eleuthera, Bahamas

Welcome to Tir Na Nog, an exclusive and enchanting private estate near the historic town of Governors Harbour, Eleuthera, a place where the legend of “The Land of the Ever Young” can come to reality. 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.

The Home Tir Na Nog offers a very special set-up unknown in most places in The Bahamas. The “home” is actually 4 Cottages of brilliant design. The main one is home to the living areas complete with a beautiful kitchen, and living and dining area with high cathedral ceilings and dark wood floors. There is a covered balcony on either side of the main house with one side overlooking the tennis court. Across the driveway is the main bedroom house complete with a beautiful covered veranda with three large bedrooms all decorated with a similar feel to the main house. Towards the ocean are two selfcontained, one-bedroom cottages with an amazing view out over the palms and the beach beyond. These five bedrooms all have private entrances and en suite baths. Three bedrooms are located in a house across from the dining hall. They are private and tranquil with exquisite furnishings in the simple Island Style ― crisp and refined. Two additional bedrooms are separate bungalows with private decks overlooking the coconut grove, and the shades of the crystalline of the beach and the azure of the Atlantic. Situated above the tennis courts with sweeping views of the estate and the sea, the living and dining room is a gathering place for all for fine dining, relaxation and entertaining. Outdoor grilling and dining is an option on the Northern deck, with upper deck for even fuller views and very much a retreat.
