Port Royal Beauty in Naples, Florida

The approach to this waterfront home is majestic. Enter through the impressive gates of 3373 Rum Row, drive along a mature tree lined brick paved road and arrive in a reception area wrapped in flowers and fountain sprinkled pools.

Beyond the massive mahogany entrance doors are thoughtfully defined sanctuaries for reflection and repose.

The architectural fusion of beauty and function flourish throughout this Port Royal residence. Rich in selected earthen ingredients, the home flows seamlessly toward the broad and far-reaching natural waters beyond. The structure is admirable in every respect, but the residence was built to be enjoyed as a home. It is appealing to every generation, most especially to those who have a “joie de vivre” to take advantage of a lifestyle only a few other homes in the world can offer.

A sophisticated security system allows peace of mind. The state of the art theater is incomparable and the winner of three prestigious awards. Accomplished chefs would covet the kitchen capabilities; in keeping with today’s lifestyle, it was designed to be the heart of family activities. The cantilevered design of the superb family room permits large sliding doors.

Numerous dining areas, inside and outside, accommodate changing desires for mood and setting. Most are casual, but a graceful dining room and an elegant living room are beautifully situated to assure formal experiences when desired.

Attention to interior lighting scenes sets the pathways beautifully. An extraordinary variety of outdoor lights allow timeless enjoyment without interfering with the romance of the natural starlight of crystal clear evenings.

The zero edge pool area with its surrounding entertainment areas and upper sun deck is a functional work of art. The dock has easily accommodated a significant yacht, and provides lifts for an additional boat and four jet skis without compromising the natural scenic environment beyond.

The home has been immaculately maintained and is ready for immediate enjoyment. Offered at $14,750,000.

“The View” - A Vancouver Island Estate

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada By Lauryn Howell

Transforming 43 empty acres of waterfront property into the site of a 16,216 square foot masterpiece is no easy feat, but former Alberta Rancher Gary Anderson managed to do just that. It took nearly five years to bring his dream home into reality, but his completed Vancouver Island estate is nothing short of magnificent.

The exterior of the home, accessed through a custom wrought iron gate, boasts a concrete tiled roof, solar heated infinity pool, hot tub, outdoor kitchen with a pizza oven, guest house, ten granite patios/decks and, lastly, a helipad. Adding to this already impressive list is an onsite workshop equipped with lifts, tool rooms, 5 over head doors and enough space to store an RV.

Although the helicopter pad grants incredible ease of access, the home is just 20 minutes from Victoria International Airport. It’s also close to picturesque downtown Victoria, known for its abundant galleries, quaint tea rooms and unique restaurants.

In designing his estate, Gary Anderson ensured only the highest quality materials with the lowest maintenance necessary were used. He always paid close attention to the home’s ability to take advantage of the absolutely breathtaking views of the Saanich Inlet. It’s these panoramas that earned the home its fitting nickname, “The View.”

While the breathtaking views may draw residents outdoors, the interior offers its own impressive list of amenities, including two theater rooms, one with a game room, and a wine cellar and fitness room. Each of its 7 bedrooms and 6 full bathrooms is uniquely elegant, but it’s the master suite, complete with walk in closets, a fireplace and private deck with ocean views, that truly epitomizes the luxury of this home.

Vancouver Island’s stunning natural scenes rank it among the best. This luxurious estate offers residents the ability to fully immerse themselves in this raw beauty, enjoying it to the fullest, each and every day.

Sales Strong at the Shores at Breckenridge

Reflecting the robust health of the second home market, the first phase of new luxury homes at The Shores at Breckenridge is now nearly sold out. Located on a pristine, half-mile stretch on the banks of Colorado’s Blue River, The Shores is a 10-acre resort community owned by Meriwether Companies in Boulder and San Diego-based Pathfinder Partners LLC.

With interiors designed by River + Lime and architecture by Allen Guerra Architects, the paired homes in this phase are the first of 40 residences with re-imagined designs – including a recently completed new model -- in the upscale riverfront community.

Among the homes’ many features are open floor plans, vaulted ceilings and large windows that take advantage of sweeping views of the Rocky Mountains, the Blue River and hundreds of acres of protected open space adjacent to the property.

Clean, transitional finishes include natural stone accents, oak flooring and knotty alder, shaker-style cabinetry. Each state-of-the-art kitchen is outfitted with slab granite countertops and premium Bosch® appliances including a French door refrigerator, gas cook top, built-in wall oven and microwave and dual-zone wine refrigerator.

Noah Hahn, managing partner of Meriwether, attributes the project’s success to its unique riverfront location, as well as a pent-up demand for new construction in mountain resorts that offer year-round activities. “Supply is limited, as there has been little new home construction in the mountains over the past seven years. With renewed demand as well as shifting preferences towards turn-key second homes, The Shores is ideally positioned to capture the market,” Hahn says. “Colorado mountain towns, long renowned for their winters, are surging in popularity with summer vacationers, fly fishermen, hikers, bikers and nature enthusiasts as well – with growing consumer demand for year-round tourism.”

Meriwether and Pathfinder acquired 20 lots – each entitled for two 2,500-square-foot paired homes for a total of 40 residences – and began construction in 2014. The second phase is now underway with deliveries scheduled for summer 2016. Once complete, the entire community will feature 56 paired homes with unprecedented access to the Blue River as well as proximity to Breckenridge’s world class skiing, spanning five peaks and 2,908 acres.

Homes at The Shores feature three or four bedrooms and 3½ baths – with expansive outdoor areas for taking in the views. Prices range up to $1.6 million.

The project is marketed by Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estate.  For details, visit www.shoresbreckenridge.com
