Lake Arrowhead, California

By Caitlin Duffy

Lake Arrowhead, California is a mountain resort community in the beautiful San Bernardino Mountains located just east of Los Angeles. Centrally located to Southern California’s key areas, LA is just an hour and a half away, Palm Springs one hour and Newport Beach is just a two hour drive. 

An exclusive private lake surrounded by multi-million dollar waterfront estates, the surrounding neighborhoods range in price from $200,000 for cabins and lodges to multi-million dollar prices for the finer homes and estates.

The community’s premiere Lake Arrowhead Country Club is open from the beginning of spring to the end of fall, featuring all the expected amenities of a high end country club. The golf course frontage is adorned with $2 million-plus estates.

Many know Lake Arrowhead as the "jewel" of the Mountains. The mountain scenery surrounding every lot is truly glorious, and options for activities in the area are limitless. The lake allows for water skiing, boating and fishing. There is also a yacht club and marina.  

At an elevation of approximately 5,300 feet, the weather remains generally mild despite a lower latitude. All four seasons can be enjoyed in full without many extreme days, with most offering a clear blue sky and fresh mountain air.

The mood of the community is very friendly and inviting, while also very upscale. Overall, the community is a quiet one, with many part-time residents using these estates as a vacation or second home. With its proximity to Los Angeles and the theatrical community, it even provides a close escape from the Paparazzi. 

full service community in every aspect, Lake Arrowhead boasts educational opportunities ranging from grammar schools to private and religious schools, as well as Rim High School. Those who are interested in making Lake Arrowhead their partial or full time home should consider Belle Maison. Located on the east side of the lake in a quiet, exclusive gated community, Belle Maison is on a large and secluded parcel. One of the most architecturally significant properties off the lake, it won’t be on the market for much longer.

Magnificent Mid-Century Modern Manor

By Natalie Friedmann

Chatham, MA is a beautiful seaside town at the southeast tip of Cape Cod, known as the elbow of Cape Cod.  The town’s prime location, being surrounded on three sides by Pleasant Bay, Chatham Harbor, the Atlantic Ocean and Nantucket Sound caters to various water activities like fishing and sailing.  In fact, Chatham still has an active commercial fishing community and one of the most iconic Lighthouses on the East Coast. 

Currently on the market is an impressive home built and designed by skilled artisans who also happen to be descendants of the founder of the town of Chatham. The design of the home pays homage to the Cape Code style fused with a modern, transparent interpretation.

The site is on a large 2.5 acre lot, with an adjacent 40,000-squarefoot lot included in the sale. A wilderness preserve is on the east side of the property as well as a paved private lane along the western border. The exterior of the home is stunningly simple, simultaneously combining a natural yet cultivated look with the use of natural materials such as stone, cedar and copper. 

“The home exhibits exquisite superlative craftsmanship, ideal for someone who appreciates sophisticated design & architecture,”says listing agent Phyllis Nickerson Power of William Raveis Prestigious Homes. 

The residence was specifically sited on the lot to welcome bright light through the impressive floor-to-ceiling windows. The views from the various rooms throughout the home give you the feeling of being engulfed in nature, evoking a feeling of serenity. During the winter months, it has been compared to living in a snow globe with the sparkling snow swirling around the glass windows. 

The home is equipped with Smart Home technology including, but not limited to, features such as smart lighting and HVAC control, motorized roller shades on the doors and windows, in-floor radiant heat throughout the home, audio visual systems and even bathroom town warmers. 

Other desirable amenities include exquisite landscape planting such as hydrangeas and perennials, a breakfast deck and sun deck, outside shower and detached storage barn, to name a few. This property is one you’d truly have to see to believe as words cannot do the design and features justice.

The Art of Living in Brookline, Massachusetts

By: Stephanie Cavanaugh

More Frank Lloyd Wright than classic New England colonial, here is a home ideal for art and grand scale entertaining in Brookline, Massachusetts, which Money Magazine recently hailed as one of the Best Places to Live.  

“This is a very cool house,” says listing agent, Robin Allen, a top luxury property specialist with William Raveis Real Estate. “It’s perfect for someone that appreciates contemporary living. There’s fabulous light and fantastic wall space for art display.” 

With smart house features, this three-story estate features five bedrooms, one of which is a huge master suite. Extraordinary entertaining space includes formal living and dining rooms—both with fireplaces—an office, a kitchen that opens to the expansive family room with a spectacular, sky light studded, twenty foot ceiling and several outdoor patios.  

Huge windows throughout frame splendid views of the brilliantly designed three quarter acre grounds, which include a Zen sculpture garden set on shimmering ground glass and mature specimen trees selected for year round  beauty.  Despite the open feel, Allen says, “The privacy is so complete there is no need for drapes.” 

The lower level is a virtual playground with an indoor lap pool and spa surrounded by windows, sauna, massage room, bath, an elegantly casual bar, wine cellar and a media room.  

Located in Fisher Hill, one of the most picturesque residential neighborhoods in Brookline, here is “urban suburban” living at its best, says Allen. You can walk to the train, to shops and restaurants, and to verdant walking trails; it’s a place with a small town feel that’s minutes from the bustle and sophistication of downtown Boston and Cambridge. Allen knows it well. The top producer in her office last year, and the number two agent in the state, she’s sold over $100,000,000 in property in the greater Boston area over her twenty year career.  Fine hands to be in, we say.

Belize Seaside Tropical Paradise

Turn your Dreams into Realty. Purchase this property and you can enjoy estate’s luxurious seaside, and privacy. This unique property, on two sea front lots. The current owner envisions this property as a family compound, but it might just as well be a main house and two rental units – each with its own garage.  

The property consists of a main house, guest cottage, oversized 4-plus-car garage, apartment over garage, greenhouse, and boathouse for a total of 6,800 square feet. on a 36,900 square foot double lot.  Property taxes are $29 per year. An old Banyan tree (sacred in many cultures) spreads its 80' canopy at the seaside, dwarfing the large stone table that sits beneath. Fortified stone wall at the 183' seaside means this property sits higher than other sites in this area.

Come to English-speaking Belize, two hours from Dallas or Miami, and yet it is the land of Mayan ruins, six marine eco-systems, unexplored regions, wildlife galore, with low taxes and stable government.

ONE Cable Beach: Premier, Modern Luxury- Nassau, Bahamas

By Nicole Slaughter-Graham

The white sand beaches and pristine turquoise ocean waters make The Bahamas a true island paradise, and highly desired by tourists and homeowners alike. ONE Cable Beach offers the perfect oceanfront escape on the iconic island of New Providence, well known by its capital city of Nassau. ONE is the last new development on Cable Beach, making it one of the newest and most sought after piece of land on the island. 

“There are very few island nations that offer what the Bahamas offers,” states Matthew Marco of ARISTO Development, the well known development company behind ONE Cable Beach. When it comes to island getaways, The Bahamas offer amenities and attractions like no other. A tax-free jurisdiction with a brand new international airport, US Dollar based currency, a stable democracy, great hospital care and infrastructure, shopping and dining make The Bahamas the perfect place to relocate or have a second residence. 

Additionally, ONE Cable Beach offers the perfect complement of private luxury living and easy access to nightlife, shopping and fine dining thanks to its neighbor, the brand new Baha Mar Resort. Residents also have access to the region’s largest Casino, a Jack Nicholas championship golf course and over 40 amazing restaurants including Nobu and Jean-Georges. An added bonus, residents can make a return on their investment by electing to take part in the exclusive Rental Program, which generates robust returns while the owner is not in residence.

Stunning Amenities

On site amenities include a gorgeous beachfront infinity edge pool, yoga studio, fitness center, full concierge, and more. Stunning views of the ocean abound from every unit, and only the finest materials and finishes were used in the craftsmanship. The breathtaking views and prime location put ONE Cable Beach in a class of its own. “The property overlooks pristine offshore islands, coves, and virgin beaches,” states Marco. 

Featured Penthouse

Of all the residences available, the most stunning is known as The Pinnacle—ONE Cable Beach’s premier penthouse. This incomparable, three bedroom, three and a half bathroom property features 2814-square-feet of indoor living space and 1559-square-feet of patio space to enjoy the tropical landscape. A NanaWall system, in which the windows retract into the walls, provides a seamless transition from indoor to outdoor living. The Pinnacle is the utmost in luxury, with 10-foot ceilings, a gourmet Italian kitchen with SubZero and Wolf appliances, LED lighting and state-of-the-art finishes. 

“This is the premier penthouse in the Bahamas” says Marco. Contact ARISTO about how to take advantage of attractive pre-completion pricing and how to make ONE Cable Beach your home away from home.

Pricing starts at $725,000.00 to just under $5,000,000.00

Make Beautiful Music in a House by the Sea- Carlsbad, California

 By Stephanie Cavanaugh

“Nowhere else on earth is there a glass oceanfront recording studio or office like this one,” says listing agent Marc Carpenter of Allison James Estates and Homes Elite. One might add, nowhere else is there a house like this, with every inch custom built of rare and fabulous materials. 

The five-bedroom, six-bath, plus two half-bath home is directly on the Pacific Ocean in Carlsbad, California.  Massive glass walls on each of the three levels retract, stepping out to curving balconies bringing the ocean indoors.  

A $2 million renovation of the home’s beach level, completed in 2015, opened the home to the Italian glass pool and champagne glass waterfall spa.  There’s a gorgeous lounge with low slung gas fireplace, a gym, and a gourmet kitchen and barbecue ready for refreshments.  An outdoor heated amphitheater allows oceanfront movie enjoyment, and a private gate leads to a gorgeous stretch of beach just below.

The home also includes the ultimate creative working environment for musicians and executives: an oceanfront glass professional music studio or office that melds an awe-inspiring view of the Pacific coastline with flawless acoustics and complete room-within-room isolation. “When you step into this room it is absolutely silent even if a loud party is going on just feet away. So you can record music or have a conference call and while still being able to see everything going on and not have to worry about any noise disturbing your work, or people on the outside being able to hear what you are doing” says Carpenter.

Formal living and entertaining is on the mid-level, which offers a splendid space highlighted by a curved stone fireplace, African mahogany floors, and a kitchen with a Wolf professional range, Sub Zero refrigerator and wine refrigerator, all overlooking that ocean. Also on this level sits a luxurious private guest suite.

Four additional bedrooms including the sumptuous oceanfront master adorn the top level of the home. The spectacular master bath contains custom limestone sinks and counters, a Jacuzzi tub, an Italian soaking tub and a glass shower with waterfall. 

An elevator provides access to the private roof deck.

“It’s a once in a lifetime property,” says Carpenter. “It probably couldn’t be rebuilt today.”

With an incredibly vibrant arts scene, abundant fine dining and shopping options, gorgeous winter weather (Average high of 73°F/23°C between January and March), world-class hospitals, favorable tax laws, and top-rated schools, it is no wonder Sarasota is regarded as the best retirement destination in the U.S., and a wonderful place to raise a family!

McClellan Park is considered the crème de la crème, one of the most prestigious communities in Sarasota. Referred to as Sarasota’s “Garden Spot,” McClellan Park features uniquely curved streets (named in reference to the area’s Native American history) lined with sidewalks shaded by mature Live Oak trees.  In fact, this historic neighborhood has the distinction of being the first platted community in all of Florida. Homes in McClellan Park and other “West of the Trail” communities in Sarasota are highly sought-after for their rich charm and close proximity to Sarasota Bay and the Gulf of Mexico beyond. Homes located within these communities range from historical structures to modern manors.

The estate at 1744 Seminole Dr. was meticulously designed and built to accommodate multi-generational growth, ensuring family togetherness and timeless memories for years to come. Constructed to the highest of standards over a span of two years and completed in 2000, this home has never before been offered on the market. Four separate structures offer 9 bedrooms, 8.5 baths and over 10,000 square feet of living space comprised of: The 8,100 SF three-tiered main home, a pool cabana with kitchenette and attached potting room, a studio apartment above the detached garage, and a romantic 1940’s guest cottage, complete with full kitchen. Luxurious details and finishes include hand-crafted, solid red oak flooring, coffered and stained Cypress ceilings, honed granite and Italian marble countertops, Hardi-Plank siding, and hand-selected Colorado-stone terraces. The lush gardens and intricate landscaping surrounding the entirety of the estate provide a private sanctuary and retreat.

This one-of-a-kind family compound rests on the largest lot on the “Oval” in McClellan Park, and is a quick stroll from Southside Village— one of Sarasota’s most premier shopping areas with alfresco dining, fashion boutiques, and lively culture. Located just a few blocks north of Southside Village is downtown Sarasota where Saturday mornings can be spent strolling through the expansive farmer’s market and evenings are filled with extravagant dining experiences, live theater, opera, and an abundance of other cultural attractions. 

Offered at $5,000,000.

Pristine Northern Colorado

By Natalie Friedmann

“Living in Colorado is a lifestyle,” says John Simmons, co-founder & broker of C3 Real Estate Solutions, a renowned real estate firm representing Northern Colorado. “Here we live in a pristine community with great schools, tremendous economic and job growth, and low crime rates. In a place where the sun shines 300 days per year, recreation and nature go hand-in-hand all year long.”

Three exclusive properties represented by C3 Real Estate Solutions:

At 2553 E. State Hwy. 56 in Berthoud is an exciting equestrian estate featuring 70.89 lush acres with spectacular views of the Rocky Mountains. The home features tremendous architectural design and first class finishes with 8,505 total sq. ft. of which 7,195 sq. ft. are finished. Desirable features include a gourmet kitchen with two islands, formal dining area, master suite with dual closets and eight piece bath, two laundry rooms, gym, wine cellar and walk-out basement. There is a 12-stall barn with tack room and caretaker quarters on property as well as a round pen, 153x60 indoor arena, three pole barns and multiple fields and pastures. This property is currently under contract but accepting backup offers.

 

A private estate located at 8236 County Rd. 74 in Windsor sits on 32 beautiful acres. The 9,595-square-foot, 7-bed, 7-bath home caters to entertainment with a gym, theater, library, oversized fun room and five fireplaces. The excitement continues outside with an in-ground swimming pool, multiple decks and patios, basketball court and sand volleyball court, playground, fire pit and water feature. The property includes a private custom security gate, multiple security cameras and all of the upgrades you can imagine. 

Located at 3438 Taliesin Way in Fort Collins is a spectacular craftsman-meets-mountain-modern style home designed by Dengler. Tucked in a gated community surrounded by nature, this 10,300-square-foot residence truly has it all—from mountain & lake views, to access to Cobb Lake and easy access to I-25. Natural finishes of wood, stone, tile and hand-forged fixtures abound throughout the 6-bed, 7-bath home. The layout of the home embraces wide open spaces with rich, natural lighting. Enjoy the great outdoors from any one of the numerous private patios and decks or while entertaining in the outdoor kitchen, terraced gardens or gather around the fire pit.
