The Luxury Report Luxury home sellers are operating in an improved housing environment, both in our local markets and in key markets worldwide.

Private island in the Bahamas

Apartment on New York City’s Upper East Side

After experiencing significant demand in 2013, there was great anticipation that the 2014 luxury market would continue to make strong gains in 2014. Although the long winter delayed the start of the traditional spring market, high-end inventory began to come on the market in large numbers in late March as the first signs of better weather emerged. We are experiencing a sharp increase in new listings of between 30% and 90% this spring versus the same period of 2013 as sellers seek to capitalize on the improving market conditions. The new inventory has created ever greater choice, though buyers have been highly discriminating.

In Litchfield County, Connecticut, and the Southern Berkshires in Massachusetts, the luxury home market has experienced a strong burst of sales activity coupled with increased showings throughout the winter and early spring. The improvement in luxury home sales gave confidence to the market overall and provided additional stimulus to other price points. Particularly in the Southern Berkshires the luxury category is being held back somewhat by a lack of fresh inventory, but as the weather warms and the sun begins to shine more frequently, we expect these markets to have a vibrant summer/fall selling season.

In terms of our local markets, both Westchester County, New York, and Fairfield County, Connecticut, saw closed unit sales of homes valued at $5,000,000 USD and higher increase between 13% and 53% in the first four months of this year versus the same period of 2013. These percentage gains are enticing, though it should be noted that the actual number of units sold remains relatively low in comparison to a normalized market, with nine homes in Westchester County sold valued at $5,000,000 and higher. In Fairfield County the 53% increase in closed units translated to 23 closed units, of which 15 were in Greenwich and the remainder sprinkled between New Canaan, Darien, Westport and Rowayton. Sales in the ultra-luxury segment were comprised almost exclusively of highly distinctive re-sale properties that represented value for the buyer.

On the lovely Connecticut Shoreline, where waterfront properties dominate the luxury segment, closed sales declined, but pending sales, which represent real-time market activity, improved by 50% in the $2,000,000 and up range. Like many other markets, new listing activity was strong, up 29% versus the same period of 2013. The luxury sector also experienced strong activity in many additional markets where the Sotheby’s International Realty brand has a presence. Notable recent sales from our global network include the $31,750,000 sale of a waterfront stone and stucco mansion in the Hamptons inspired by architect Edwin Landseer Lutyens, the $19,000,000 sale of a J.E.R. Carpenter-designed full-floor apartment in an elegant limestone prewar cooperative on New York City’s Upper East Side, and the $18,500,000 sale of a private island in the Bahamas known as Williams Cay, a 180-acre retreat with a concrete block house at the highest point. The bottom line for the beginning of 2014 is that in general, luxury sellers are operating in an improving housing environment. Yet supply continues to outpace demand, which puts pressure on sellers to carefully and creatively present their homes. From the buyer perspective, current market conditions create a great opportunity as the property selection is wonderful and pricing has been aggressive.

Upon entering, one is immediately swept away by the unique mood that the home sets, by the feeling of elegance and sophistication that this classic 1930s estate imparts. William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty New Canaan brokerage manager William Larkin, who has listed the property for sale, describes that pause that occurs as one takes in the majesty of the residence: “It’s a moment in time.” Reflecting on those first steps into the home’s entrance foyer, he suggests, “It captivates you from the moment you walk in.” Perhaps the moment begins even before that, when rolling up the gated drive and approaching the imposing whitewashed brick Georgian-style façade.

of a significant restoration and renovation undertaken by the current owners, honoring the home’s roots while bringing it fully into the modern world. The vintage style is discovered throughout the over 10,000 square-foot interior as well, from the extensive millwork to the new moldings to the many additional enhanced architectural details. Larkin points to the solarium, accessed through the library and lying at one end of the house, as one of his favorites of the numerous remodeled spaces. Previously a blank slate, the room now features new coffered ceilings, new French doors that exit to the grounds, and of course, plenty of sunlight. The living room is another standout: “I love the light and the views looking out at the property,” he says. The room also includes a new fireplace and surround, a feature that it shares with the formal dining room and master bedroom. The master was another blank slate prior to its renovation, Larkin notes, and now displays beautiful moldings and millwork as well as built-in bookcases. In total, the home has seven bedrooms with en-suite baths. The family room highlights ceruse-finished solid oak woodwork and display cabinets along with new French doors, while the extensively renovated kitchen has a new bay window, refinished flooring and a breakfast room with French doors. The renovation continues on the lower level, where a floor that previously served simply as utilitarian space now hosts a state-of-the-art movie theater, gym, and bar and billiard room. Everywhere one looks there is a perfect symmetry between the old and the new, a seamless balance between classic

Portrait of a Builder David Fenton

“An exceptional home is simply a frame for an exceptional life.”

The wine cellar in a Twin Oaks-designed property in Scarsdale



avid Fenton, Founder and CEO of Twin Oaks Construction in Westchester County, New York, is proof positive that if you do what you love success will follow. His childhood passion for building never waned, even during his years working as a police officer by night and as a carpenter renovating houses in Memphis, Tennessee by day. He then moved into project management for the New York City development company that was building the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Miami Beach, Florida. This led to his becoming a partner in the development of The RitzCarlton Golf Club, Spa and Residences in Jupiter, Florida, and The Ritz-Carlton Golf Community at Creighton Farms in Aldie, Virginia — both high-end residential club communities with award-winning Jack Nicklaus Signature golf courses. Today, he applies this experience to creating custom homes in Westchester County, New York, a community where dealing with historical preservation mandates and strict building restrictions is all in a day’s work. • | 11

Fenton takes pride in making each home unique, and there’s no limit to how far he will go to create the distinctive home he imagines. He has travelled to stone quarries in Turkey and throughout the northeastern United States to personally choose the vein of rock to be blasted for the exterior cladding of buildings. Of course, he doesn’t always need to travel that far to find the right materials. He’s also been known to carefully tag black walnut, red and white oak trees right on the property on which he is building, and these are then milled for use in interior finishes. “Having learned what it takes to put a house together with my own hands, I understand how important every detail is to the person who will live there,” Fenton says. “I have also come to appreciate the huge difference personal attention makes in the building process. I consider myself a craftsman and artisan first, and a builder second. I believe that the difference between ‘good’ and ‘great’ is in the attention to detail.” Another trait Fenton brings to his business is a commitment to environmentally sound construction practices. Sustainable development is one of the key tenets of his company. From the earliest stages of the building process, Twin Oaks works with the client as well as architects and engineers to enhance each project’s design as well as its sustainability. Notably, the company has completed the only LEED accredited historical restoration and addition to a 1907 Dutch Colonial in Scarsdale.

Fenton’s focus on the wellness of the planet also extends to maintaining the wellness of the individual. He meticulously plans details like lighting, soundproofing and air/water filtration to soothe body and mind. Layouts, cabinetry and even landscaping subtly promote a healthy lifestyle. This is in keeping with his philosophy: “An exceptional home is simply a frame for an exceptional life,” he says. To achieve his vision for each home, Fenton works with a team comprised of master carpenters, architects, engineers and masons, collectively representing over 100 years of experience in high-end residential construction. One of his latest projects is a 1926 Tudor home in the sought-after Grange Estate area of Scarsdale. “We’ve preserved the best original architectural features and enhanced it with all of the custom modern amenities,” he says. The result is a 14,000 square-foot English Manor home with such distinctive elements as a grand staircase that was reportedly taken from a battleship frigate used in the War of 1812, 14foot vaulted cathedral ceilings, large double casement windows and historically correct moldings, as well as an expansive media room with theater seating, 5,000-bottle wine room and infinity pool with cabana. It is a home that, as with many of Fenton’s projects, marries traditional craftsmanship with contemporary ideals.

CROWN JEWEL of Bronxville



When Karen and Roly Morris set out to purchase a new home in 1998, they had a clear vision. They wanted to remain in the rural hamlet of Bronxville, a one-square-mile village within the town of Eastchester, New York, known for its friendly neighborhoods, magnificent homes, elegant country living and top-rated schools. Ideally, the new home should feature a suite with multiple bedrooms and a bathroom for all three of their children on the same floor. “For us, that was like a dream come true,” says Karen Morris. Also on the priority list: an elegant library to house Roly’s extensive book collection.

vibrant downtown shopping area and more than 70 acres of parkland. The village looks much today as it did when it was fully developed around the 1940s. Over the years, Bronxville has earned the reputation of a model suburban community “that is endlessly copied, but never matched.”

“We had a very specific list of what we were looking for and this house had everything…and more,” says Morris, who was immediately captivated by the elegant, circa 1911 Italian Renaissance-style estate. There was much to like about the home, but “the thing we fell madly in love with was the library. My husband grew up in an old house in Philadelphia with a room very similar” to the home’s expansive reading room, which hosts a lavish, sit-down dinner for 80 on New Year’s Eve.

“What I also love about the home is the close-knit community and the commute,” says the homeowner. Bronxville is located only 15 miles and a 25-minute train ride away from midtown Manhattan.

But now that their children, ages 21, 24 and 27, are grown, says Morris, president of Madison Avenue investment firm Morris Associates LLC, they have put the house on the market. “My husband and I are looking to be a little bit more mobile. It’s such a big house for just the two of us.”

Throughout the decades the estate, which evokes the splendor of a European villa, has been lovingly maintained and updated by its owners, who preserved its architectural integrity, says Collins. “It’s grand, but very comfortable for a young family. It offers Old World charm and all the modern amenities.”

The 9,000 square-foot, seven-bedroom, five and a half-bath estate is situated on 1.2 private acres of land, which by Bronxville standards is among the most impressive in terms of lot size. “In the last 10 years in Bronxville Village, there have only been five properties that have traded that are on more than an acre of property,” says Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty listing agent Kathleen Collins.

A circular driveway sweeps up to the front loggia, and an entry vestibule opens into a central foyer, richly detailed with dentil moldings and paneled walls. This exceptional craftsmanship, rarely seen today, continues throughout the home. Formal rooms extend to the right and left, and French doors beyond the main stairway reveal vast views of the valley. “Our property might be the highest point in Bronxville. You can see over the tree line all the way down to the city lights,” says Morris. Collins concurs: “The home is located very high up on a piece of property, offering lots of privacy and beautiful views, which are hard to come by in Bronxville.”

The property’s allure is found both in its architectural beauty and its rural location, long a haven for writers, musicians and artists. Bronxville, with its grand residences dating to the late 1800s, is tucked away in the south central portion of Westchester County, and is home to Concordia College, Sarah Lawrence College, Lawrence Hospital, a

Back Stage with the experts

“It’s about the emotional reaction when the buyer walks in the house.”

BY Andrew Wood Director of Content

When New York City interior design firm Nella Vetrina was recently called upon to stage a three-bedroom Upper West Side residence, the home had already been sitting on the market for 90 days. After it was staged, it sold in two weeks. “Properties that are staged have a much higher rate of success,” remarks Steve Brister, the firm’s Creative Director. Nella Vetrina Interior Designer Jason Campbell, concurs. “Without the staging, buyers may have difficulty visualizing what they can potentially do with a space,” he says. Home sellers have a lot to think about when placing a property on the market, from completing needed repairs to doing a little landscaping in order to get the curb appeal just right. Another item to add to the list: staging the interior to maximize appeal to buyers. While some sellers may wonder if investing in the expense of staging is worthwhile, The Wall Street Journal reported in 2012 that staging leads to a faster home sale. Lisa Hynes, owner of the staging and design services company Stage to Show, which primarily serves Fairfield County, Connecticut and Westchester County, New York, suggests that perception is paramount. “It’s about the emotional reaction when the buyer walks into a house,” she says. “There is a perceived value based on the feeling they get.” Hynes claims that between 80 and 90 percent of the clients who work with her firm end up selling their home for the full asking price. The stager’s job is to ensure that a home makes the best impression it can. “I really like it when you walk into a room and feel embraced by it, like the room is giving you a hug,” Hynes says. She arranges living spaces so

18 | •

that the furniture is welcoming, facing toward rather than away from guests, and she pays close attention to air space and flow throughout the house. The first floor’s main living areas and the master suite are musts for staging, while even the additional bedrooms can benefit as children touring the home with their parents can have an influence with how excited they become about their prospective rooms. Light is another important factor. According to Susie Weekes, a designer based in Litchfield County, Connecticut and the Berkshires, Massachusetts, light can be added by removing clutter, neutralizing wall colors, making use of the existing lighting and bringing in table lamps or other light sources. All of these can have the effect of making a home “brighter, warmer and more welcoming,” she says. “Light is a huge word from a buyer’s perspective.” In particular, decluttering, which includes removing items that crowd and furniture that is well worn, not only lightens a space but sets a clean canvas for buyers. It’s best to establish an environment that a buyer can envision tailoring to their personal taste without being influenced by the seller’s. “The name of the game and strategy in staging is to appeal to the potential buyer,” says Brister. Personal effects can even impact a negotiation: Weekes cites one example of a deal falling apart when the buyers, staunch democrats, saw a photo of the sellers with the Reagan family on the piano. To paint that fresh canvas stagers often choose among soft or neutral colors. Hynes works with silvery greys and whites, while Brister and Campbell similarly start with base colors of beige, taupe, grey or white, reserving colors for pillows, picture frames and other “objets d’art” accents. Weekes will even bring in pieces of art to add some extra energy and personality. Of course, deciding how to stage a home can depend on its style. “One of my guiding principals is to honor the house,” Weekes says, acknowledging that the popular modern approach might not work in a center hall Colonial or a Victorian. Hynes recently outfitted a modern Greenwich home with Barcelona and egg chairs, while for traditional homes she adds subtle textures such as Mongolian lamb pillows or foil printed skin rugs. Brister notes that owners who opt to purchase rather than rent furniture and

accessories for staging can try to include them in the sale or donate them to charity. One last benefit to using a stager is the emotional one, says Weekes. After all, it can be hard to move on, and sellers may find that the objective eye of a stager can help assuage the heartache and chore of moving out their personal treasures. And in the end, they will often find their goal achieved: the sale of their home. “A person might be hard to convince at the beginning, but when it stages and sells, they thank me and then call me again for another interior design project,” says Hynes, who is now staging a property for sale in Darien that sold two years ago after she staged it then as well. “When they see that it works, that is very gratifying.” 房产销售员在将某个房产投向市场时,会有诸多考虑,包括是否要装饰 室内,以便吸引更多买家。有些销售员则在装饰投资值不值上颇有踌 躇,据《华尔街日报》2012 年的报道,房屋售前装饰确能加快房产销 售速度。房屋售前装饰专家们讨论了待售房产的最佳展示战略。 當房仲業務員要把某間房產推到市面上銷售時,可得花上不少的心思, 其中當然也包括了是否要進行美式宅妝,以提高對買方的吸引力。儘管 部分房仲業務員懷疑花錢進行美式宅妝是否值得,但根據華爾街日報在 2012 年的報導,美式宅妝的確可加快住宅銷售。美式宅妝的專家,將 對各種最能呈現待售住宅的策略進行討論。 • | 19



ust 15 miles north of Manhattan, the idyllic village of Bronxville, New York is replete with designs by renowned architect Harry Leslie Walker — including the remarkable residence he once called home. Celebrated for his influence on Bronxville’s most prominent public buildings, Walker made his former private residence a home truly fit for an architect. A paragon of prewar architecture, the 1918 Tudor manor showcases the distinctive elements of early 20th century design while boasting all modern amenities from an exceptional renovation by John Downs in 1999. “It has all the old world charm associated with Walker, but still sits like a new construction home,” says Bronxville brokerage agent James Sutherland. In this premier location, residents enjoy the blend of lovely, bucolic surroundings paired with unparalleled proximity to New York City. “The home is in a beautiful estate section of the village – while it’s walkable to town and has a great neighborhood feel, it’s still only a 25-minute train ride into Manhattan,” says Sutherland. Set on half an acre of meticulously landscaped grounds, the nearly 5,500 squarefoot residence opens with a grand double-height foyer, which seamlessly flows to a series of regally scaled principal rooms. “To the right is your classic Harry Leslie Walker oak-paneled living room with custom plaster ceiling. It’s just a stunning formal entertaining space that expands to the enclosed summer porch overlooking the formal gardens,” says Sutherland.

“You can just imagine the dinner parties being hosted in this room.” BY EMILY CAHILL

Added by Mr. Walker in 1927, an ornate sunken dining room is perfectly suited for intimate gatherings, while commanding attention as a grand entertaining venue. The opulent yet comfortable space is canopied by a dramatic barrel ceiling that centers on an elegant wooden chandelier. “That ceiling takes your eye from the moment you walk in the door,” recalls Sutherland. “You can just imagine the dinner parties being hosted in this room.” The stunning period details are complemented by concealed wall speakers to accommodate state-of-the-art entertaining. With French doors to the property, the dining room streamlines entertaining between interior and outdoor spaces. • | 21

At the heart of the main level, a bright, spacious gourmet kitchen serves as an inviting focal point of the home. “It’s got every amenity you need,” says Sutherland. “This modern chef’s kitchen has a great design with two entrances leading to the family room. The entire home just has a logical, very appealing layout and flows easily from room to room.” Designed by David Devendorff, the sun-filled kitchen is highlighted by a tiered, semicircular mahogany island, resplendent marble countertops and professional appliances. The adjoining family room is beautifully appointed with a wood-burning fireplace, stunning coffered ceiling and built-ins, all framed by a wall of windows overlooking the property. The kitchen opens to a relaxing bluestone terrace with more of a “casual backyard barbecue feel,” notes Sutherland. Upstairs, four bedrooms include a sumptuous master suite with double walk-in closets and a spa-like bath with Millbrook custom cherry-wood cabinetry. A second level office serves as an excellent retreat with a bay window overlooking the grounds, while a luxurious guest suite completes the third floor. Sophisticated recreation spaces abound on the lower level, which encompasses nearly 1,200 additional square feet. In addition to a workshop and ample storage, a 900-bottle wine cellar, cutting-edge media room and roomy exercise area add to the ambiance of relaxed luxury. These expertly planned finishing touches complete one of Bronxville’s most noteworthy homes — a testament to the refined style of its legendary architect, as well as discerning owners to come. 30 Elm Rock Road in Bronxville, New York (Web ID: 4406678) is offered at $4,995,000 USD.

paradise found

“It’s as close to perfection as I’ve ever seen.”



aradise evokes the idea of a place of tremendous beauty, of happiness, peacefulness and perfection. It could be just the right word to describe a luxurious estate in New Canaan, Connecticut, designed and custom built by the renowned architectural firm of Wadia Associates. The 20-room, single-family home, a blend of English Arts and Crafts and American Shingle Style, sits upon 3.71 acres of meticulously manicured grounds. The estate is a true oasis that exudes luxury and comfort from the moment it is entered through its private gate off Oenoke Ridge. William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty New Canaan agent Larry Palma, who is co-listing the property with New Canaan agent Becky Walsh, says construction on the estate was completed in 2008. He and Walsh are no strangers to exceptional properties, as the duo recently sold one of the highest priced homes in New Canaan over the past six years for $8.5 million. Yet, says Palma, an estate of this quality and craftsmanship is an exceptionally rare find. Praising the architect’s vision, he notes that the design marries the home’s classic interior with its lush surroundings. The sweeping, multi-tiered grounds reveal bluestone terraces, stone walls, fountains, a heated pool and four-season spa. Those seeking a bit of recreation can raise a racquet at the clay tennis court, and a nearby playground is sure to delight the young — or the young at heart. In English cottage garden tradition, a rose garden provides fragrance to the landscape with David Austin roses. Borrowing the architect’s philosophy, “A house without a garden is a house without

a soul,” says Walsh. “It’s one of the most beautiful, well-designed and executed houses that I’ve seen in New Canaan.” A veranda offers the perfect location for alfresco dining, and outdoor exploration inevitably leads to surprises, including perennial gardens, blackberry bushes, a strawberry patch, espalier Asian pear trees, vegetable gardens and grape and kiwi vines. The home, with four finished floors, boasts 15,242 square feet of living space, and its layout allows for intimate gatherings as well as grand entertaining. “What I like about the design of the home is that even though it has 20 rooms, you can host 150 people or just a party of • | 27

eight and not be overwhelmed by any specific space,” says Palma. The house, notes Walsh, reflects “restrained elegance.” The design takes advantage of natural light with its narrow layout, which allows sunlight to stream in from both sides. It also features high-quality finishes, including five-inch, quarter-sawn white oak floors, designer lighting fixtures, leaded glass windows, Waterworks fixtures and a Crestron smart home control system. “As you step through the front door into the foyer, immediately a sense of calm and serenity falls over you. It’s almost a Zen-like feeling,” notes Walsh. At the heart of the home, a chef’s kitchen features Costa Esmeralda granite tops, top-of-the-line appliances and two islands, which house refrigerator and freezer drawers. The second island provides a stopping place for guests to mingle over a glass of wine and fine conversation. A multi-level staircase leads to a dramatic master suite with 12-foot ceilings, his-and-hers walk-in closets, and a master bath with marble radiant-heated floors and steam shower. In all, the home has six ensuite bedrooms and seven Chesney’s fireplaces. A mahogany paneled library, nine-seat home theater, 3,800-bottle wine cellar, massage room, exercise room, dance and yoga studio along with several other bonus rooms complement the home. “You don’t often see Wadia’s homes for sale in New Canaan,” says Palma. “It’s as close to perfection as I’ve ever seen.” 1248 Oenoke Ridge in New Canaan, Connecticut (Web ID: 99062002) is offered at $10,500,000 USD.
