Welcome to Saratoga! ...and to Welcome Home, your go-to guide for Life in the Saratoga Region!

Whether you’re contemplating relocating to the Saratoga area (does anybody think twice?!) or you’ve been here for years, Saratoga TODAY has put together everything you need to know in one handy informative community guide… after all, providing local news is what we do best! If this is your first time looking through Welcome Home, you will see that the entire magazine is color-coded, making it quick and easy to navigate your way through the pages. •

Would you like the phone number to your local library or town clerk? Browse the TOWNS OF SARATOGA COUNTY section.

Need a groomer for your newly rescued dog? We have a PET SECTION too!

Interested In finding out about the school district in your area? No problem, turn to the PUBLIC SCHOOLS section.

Life in Saratoga, as photographed by John Seymour

Is mom or dad getting older and you’re looking for resources in the area? Flip to the SENIOR CARE section.

With a low crime rate, a high quality of life and world class entertainment and activity options… Saratoga is the place to be! (flip the page to hear what others think!) We proudly boast the oldest continuously run thoroughbred race course in the nation as well as world-class polo. If entertainment and dining are your thing, then look no further… Stop by the Saratoga Performing Arts Center, aka SPAC, to check out some of today’s hottest stars, best ballets and a classical season second to none. And the culinary scene is the best north of Manhattan! So browse the book, mark your favorite pages, and enjoy life in our little corner of the world. We hope you enjoy this issue and I must close with a thank you to our advertisers… Without them, we wouldn’t be able to provide these beautiful publications, free of charge, to our thousands of readers. Please, mention us by name when visiting them. …and a special THANK YOU to our photographers who have given me the perfect way to portray what this area is all about. They are listed by name on page 10. And last but not least, if you have an idea for a category not listed in our guide, let me know and we will include it in the 2018 edition of Welcome Home. Enjoy life in the Saratoga Region!

New to the area and looking for running clubs, yoga studios or healthy places to shop? Check out the HEALTHY SARATOGA section.

Entertaining friends or looking for a new restaurant? Check out our LOCAL DINING GUIDE

But before you dig into the details, I recommend that you spend some time in the COMMUNITY DEMOGRAPHICS section in the front of the magazine and find out what makes our county tick. Did you know Saratoga County is one of the fastest growing counties in NY …and the healthiest! Yes it is, and for good reason…

Life

PS... Don't forget, you must now include the area codes (either 518 or 838) when making calls in this area - 911 and 411 are not changing.

Gideon Hawley Memorial Park

Tucked in the southwest corner of Saratoga County and easily accessible from I-87 and I-90, you’ll be charmed by Charlton’s rural character, historic hamlets, and scenic landscapes. Boasting agriculture as its main industry, a drive or bike tour through Charlton’s rolling hills reveals dairy and horse farms, orchards and farm stands just around the bend. Glimpses of the past abound: in the Historical Society’s museum and one-room schoolhouse, the general store, and lively Tavern—its former building serving as a stagecoach stop in 1787. Known for its hardy settlers and once-prolific grist mills along the Alplaus Creek, Charlton’s friendly community welcomes visitors to explore its proud heritage.

Charming bedroom community, just off the Northway!

ROUND LAKE The charming Village of Round Lake is profoundly tied to its rich cultural past, and still boasts the “campground” feel with its small, close lots. Residences and other structures are arranged in concentric circles radiating from the Round Lake Auditorium, with narrow streets and pedestrian walkways. This creates a hub and spoke pattern – and the secret to “village life” – you know your neighbors!

Shows and events highlighting art, crafts and antiques are regularly held on Village grounds and organ and musical concerts are still given in the Round Lake Auditorium. The Round Lake Library, though small, continues operation and maintains many books pertaining to Victoriana and Victorian architecture, being particularly useful to those seeking restoration information.

SARATOGA FARMERS' MARKETS The Saratoga Springs Farmers’ Market is a great year-round place to find fresh fruits, vegetables, homemade baked goods, local meat and dairy products and so much more. The market started in 1978 as a small group of vendors in a parking lot and has since grown to more than 50 vendors. The Saratoga Farmers’ market has won numerous awards, and last year the market was named the #1 must-visit farmers’ market in New York State by I Love NY. Supporting local business is very important to the communities in Saratoga County, something that is especially true of the local farmers’ market. All of the vendors and their products must be produced locally (from within Saratoga, Schenectady, Washington and Rensselaer counties). As is stated on the market’s website, this means that when you shop at the market, you are buying unique products and supporting our community and our economy. The only exception to the “only local” rule is fresh Long Island-caught fish. From May to October, the farmers’ market is outdoors on High Rock Ave. in downtown Saratoga Springs. Shop outdoors and under the High Rock Pavilion two days a week: on Wednesday from 3-6 p.m. and then Saturday from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. You’ll find an incredible assortment of fruits, vegetables, herbs, locally-made cheese, jams, sauces, crafts, baked goods, meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products in addition to local plants for your garden. There’s nothing better than fresh local veggies in the winter–here-in Saratoga Springs, you can taste that freshness all year-long! From November to April, the farmers’ market moves indoors to The Lincoln Baths in Saratoga Springs State Park. The market is open each Saturday from 9 a.m.–1 p.m. The winter market is famous for its variety. You’ll find naturally-grown winter veggies (including salad greens and tomatoes), meat, fish, cheese, yogurt, milk, honey, jam, pickles, organic soaps and much, much more! Plus, vendors offer ready-made foods so you can enjoy a breakfast sandwich or variety of lunch options, and even grab-and-go snacks like donuts and croissants while you shop. There’s much more to the Saratoga Springs Farmers’ Market experience than grocery shopping. This lively market is also a perfect place to meet friends, connect with your community and enjoy entertainment and family-friendly events. From chef demonstrations to live music, there’s always something fun happening at the market. Stop by and check it out! For more information, visit www.saratogafarmersmarket.org. Plus, check out Saratoga TODAY’s food page each week for recipes straight from the farmers’ market.

Spa City Farmers Market

Spa State Park Sunday 10-3 Year round Lincoln Bath Tuesday (May-Spetember) 3-6 National Museum of Dance www.Spacityfarmersmarket.com

Greenfield Farmers’ Market

Runs every Friday from 4 to 7 p.m. in Middle Grove Park on Middle Grove Road, through the second week in September. The market will feature a blend of products you would expect to find at a Farmers Market including many fresh organic vegetables and produce, honeys, maple syrups, fresh eggs, specialty olive oils and spices, fresh fruits, baked goods and home-made pickles. On site will also be Euro-Delicacies, which specializes in Greek and Turkish prepared meals, and Pa’s Pistols Hot Dogs. You can get your Friday dinner right at the Market and bring it home to the family! “The Greenfield Farmers Market is more than just a place to shop, it’s a Friday night gathering place for the community,” said Louise Okoniewski, President of the Town of Greenfield Historical Society.

ocal builder Lou Galarneau and his wife Denise had what many would consider the perfect home in a dream location. As a builder of fine homes, Lou built his personal home overlooking Saratoga Lake with all the bells and whistles. A showcase of high end living with a beautiful lake view, the Galarneaus had it all!

  WELCOME HOME | 2017

But Lou Galarneau is a restless man – he is continually seeking the cutting edge in home design and locales to build dream homes for his clients. The locale of choice, it seemed, was right in front of him every day. A reoccurring request from clients was to have a home within the inner district of Saratoga Springs. The walkability, the access to parks and shops, the modern urban lifestyle is trending big in Saratoga Springs. And Lou’s daily commute from Saratoga Lake to his office on Maple Avenue took him right through the center of it all. On these daily commutes, Lou was particularly enthralled by the diverse architecture within the neighborhoods of Saratoga Springs. While Saratoga Springs is well known for its Victorian architecture, it was the early 20th century styles that intrigued him the most. Perhaps it was his memory of growing up in Schenectady, where the multi-story Craftsman style homes are prominent. saratogaTODAYnewspaper.com

Check out the back of the house!

Then there was the lot. A vacant lot next door to the old armory on Lake Avenue (which now houses the Saratoga Military Museum) was up for sale. Lou thought of it first as a great site for a client, but the discussions with his wife Denise about relocating to the city core would finally motivate the couple to “get it while you can.” As the saying goes… “When opportunity knocks, answer the door” … and they did! It would prove to be the best decision they had ever made. With the lot acquired, Lou set about designing their new home. The fall-away sloped lot was awkward for a home-site, but Lou saw it as an opportunity to go vertical, in a style that would be similar to the other homes on Lake Avenue. Lou also saw an opportunity to build this home as a place that would allow him and Denise to live comfortably well into their golden years without impediments, should there

be mobility issues that may arise as they age. The phrase “Aging in Place” refers to just that – having a home design that can accommodate the senior lifestyle changes.

A City to Live In True to its intent, the new Galarneau home sits proudly on the Avenue, blending in with its neighbors as if it has been there for years. The Galarneaus traded their lake view for a city view. The broad front porch, complete with porch swing, is but a mere twenty feet from the sidewalk. This is a favorite place for the couple to hang out in the summertime. The pedestrian traffic from their perch on the porch is brisk in the prime time of summer. “We’ve had so many great conversations with the passersby,” exclaimed Lou. From the doorstep, Broadway is just three blocks away. Four Seasons Natural Foods is practically in their backyard. “We hardly drive at all now,”

Lou explains. “We’ve always loved Saratoga Springs, but living downtown has given us a whole new appreciation for it.”

Back to the Future While the Galarneau’s new pad may look like an early 20th century abode, inside it has the cutting edge design that Galarneau Builders are famous for. Broad hallways provide a feeling of spaciousness, and can readily accommodate a wheelchair or scooter if the need for one comes into their life. The main living area on the first floor spans the entire width of the house, encompassing the kitchen, dining and family room without walls. A broad walnut countertop slab separates the family room from the working area of the kitchen; bar stools on one side allow guests to engage with the cooking activity on the other. “This is what people are looking for,” explains Lou, pointing out the open space layout. The kitchen and living saratogaTODAYnewspaper.com

space integrate rather than separate. He touches a key pad on the side of the countertop and the lighting changes from bright to a soft, warm glow. “We can change the lighting to whatever mood we want to create, explains Lou. The entire house is rigged with high tech enhancements; ring the doorbell and a camera activates, turning on the wide screen TV in the main living area to show who’s at the door. Music can be piped into any of the rooms, even the outdoor patio and deck. All changes can be made from a smartphone app. Perhaps the most impressive enhancement to this home may well prove to be its most essential element – the elevator. From the garage at ground level to the attic loft, there are four floors. That is a lot of stairs to climb. Because of the vertical nature of this home, the installation of an elevator was a nobrainer, according to Lou. The ability to move items between floors is a whole lot easier with the elevator. And if there ever comes a time where one of them becomes disabled for whatever reason, the elevator will allow the couple to remain independent within their own home. “We are starting to get more calls for these,” says Lou. “It’s a $30,000 add-on to a build, but the peace of mind it gives is priceless.”

Comfort and Quiet

Across the street from the Galarneau home is the City Firehouse. Two blocks south is Caroline Street, Saratoga Springs’ infamous home of rowdy night life. Sounds like a noisy place to be, right? Well, Lou took that all into consideration in the design, and incorporated a layer of sound deadening sheetrock along with spray foam insulation and triple glazed windows. He points to the military tank parked next door, saying “they could shoot that gun off and we’d barely notice it.” The spray foam insulation also makes the house very energy efficient. Two HVAC systems keep the house at optimum comfort with minimal cost. There is even a radiant heated floor in the master suite, making late night barefoot bathroom breaks comfortable. The same radiant heat also gets piped under the outdoor walkways, eliminating potential slips and slides. Within the HVAC system is an automated steam generator which optimizes humidity levels within the home. All the air circulating through the system passes through an ultraviolet sanitizer, which eliminates any odors and pathogens that happen to be in the air. SaratogaPhotographer.com

Fun, Fitness and Family The greatest joy for the Galarneaus is having a place for their family to come and enjoy each other. Their son Josh and two daughters, Tara and Heather, and three grandchildren come to visit often, so the 3 extra bedrooms on the second floor can accommodate the whole gang. The ground floor has a playroom for the kids including a home theater, and one for the adults too – with exercise equipment and sauna. A sauna may seem like a luxury, but health experts suggest that sauna therapy is important to help detoxify the body. And as we get older, the buildup of toxins can create a host of other problems. Lou’s brilliant planning for the future, is evident again with the sauna and exercise room. And of course, the open floor plan of the main living area keeps the family together, sharing, laughing and loving. Yet to be finished is the 4th floor – accessible by the elevator only. Lou and Denise have plans for this space to be a game room, with pool table, bar and other amenities to entertain young and old. A peak out the windows yields a commanding view of downtown Saratoga Springs. As a builder of fine homes, Lou Galarneau needs to keep abreast of the latest trends. His new home is a proving ground SaratogaPhotographer.com

for the creature comforts that any client may desire. He can gain firsthand knowledge of the cutting edge technology and design characteristics to help him better advise clients as to what will best suit their needs. But on a more personal level, Lou and Denise have a place that will suit THEIR needs, no matter what circumstances may come their way. If, God forbid, a disability were to come to either of them, they know that they can handle it – at home, where they want to be. Not only are they able to age in place, they can age with grace!

Aging in Place An emerging trend in home design is what’s being called “Aging in Place.” Simply put, aging in place means that one can stay in the home for life, even if a disability or other life altering event were to occur. “The house won’t kick you out,” according to local design consultant, Liz Kormos. Most homes are built with an elevation off of ground level, requiring a set of stairs to get into, and out of the house. No big deal for the able-bodied, but if one were to suddenly (or gradually) end up in a wheel chair, those stairs become a formidable impediment. Either big alterations will be needed, or worse, an outright sale and relocation to a barrier-free home, often at great cost and heart-break.

“We use the term ‘universal design,’” say Ms. Kormos. It’s a design that considers life’s ups and downs, and how to accommodate them. The elimination of walls to create an open floor plan is common in universal design. Gone are the separated kitchen, dining room and living room. All come together as one large common area for a more fluid movement of people and placement of furniture. Multi generational living is also a common driver of universal design. Elements such as a second

living area with a small kitchen in another part of the house (aka in-law apartment) allow accommodation for a family member or even a boarder moving in. Kormos suggests that Universal Design is good for everyone. Wider doors and hallways; lever door handles, touch pad switch plates – these elements are not just good for folks with handicaps, it turns out we all appreciate the spaciousness, convenience, and functionality these things provide. And while some of these upgrades will add to the cost of a home, it can be well worth it, according to Kormos. “When we look at the story of our lives, nothing is static,” she explains. “We can never predict what may happen, so designing a home to consider the ‘what if ’ will bring peace of mind if and when ‘what’ happens.” It’s a more sustainable way to look at our lifestyles, and making where we live work better for us. And if “what if ” never happens, the elements of the Universal Design are there serving us anyway, so we win either way! Got an Aging in Place question for Liz?

Magical Backyards Photos by Paul Castle

ARE YOU READY to slide into a warm water abyss in your own backyard? If the answer is 'Yes', we have good news for you. The experts at Concord Pools & Spas, the Capital Region’s largest in-ground swimming pool builder, can make resort-style living a reality. In their 44 years in operation, Concord Pools has installed more than 10,000 pools in the Capital Region as far south as Kingston, and well into Massachusetts and Vermont. From the simplest to the most complex designs, Concord Pools works to turn dreams into reality. Whether it’s a negative edge pool cantilevered off the edge of an extreme slope, a free-form pool with custom concrete accents or anything in between, when clients hire Concord Pools, they know the end result will be something beautiful. Concord Pools does a lot more than install amazing pools. They do the designing, building and servicing of spas and saunas, outdoor renovations, safety covers, pool openings and closings. They will help you create an entire outdoor entertainment environment. An integrated design approach incorporates custom water features, landscaped slides, custom stairs and benches around deluxe outdoor kitchens, fireplaces, and outdoor living rooms to create your own unique personal backyard oasis.

Behind the fantasy is the strength of an innovative and award-winning company. Concord Pools was the first to pioneer the use of radiant heat in swimming pools. A radiant heating system utilizes a modulating boiler and PEX tubing in the concrete floor of the pool. The result is an incredibly efficient source of heat for a swimming pool. Concord Pools was also one of the first companies to perfect construction techniques for negative edge vinyl-lined pools. Their patented I-Beam brace system is like no other brace in the industry and supports pool decking from settling and shifting.

This project was an entry in the Showcase of Homes last fall. This negative edge pool was cantilevered off the edge of an extreme slope. Over 450 tons of material was brought in to create the platform for this project. The resulting pool is a beautiful blend of natural stone, stamped concrete and natural elements with a breathtaking view.

Concord’s accomplishments have been featured in numerous industry and national publications and have received multiple national and regional awards. They were voted one of the “Top Three” pool companies in America by Pool and Spa News, they are a seven time recipient of the coveted Master of Design Award and were voted a lifetime member of the AQUA 100 Hall of Fame by AQUA Magazine. On a local level they also won first place in the Showcase of Homes in ‘12, ’13, ‘14, ‘15 and ’16.

The time is now to start building the backyard of your dreams.

This project boasts a spectacular outdoor space with a free-form pool design. A natural stone landscape custom slide with adjoining spillover spa are the focal point of this design. The large patio area is done in a premium paver including a natural stone fire pit.
