Rustic Authenticity

Harry Connick, Jr., the New Orleans-born multi-talented musician, singer, actor and host of the national daytime TV show HARRY, and his wife Jill, have put their New Canaan, Connecticut 4.61-acre estate on the market after spending 18 years lovingly restoring their historic home, which was originally an 1890s dairy barn.

April Kaynor and Kelly DeFrancesco of William Raveis Real Estate, Mortgage & Insurance, are the listing agents. “Since we are up on a hill,” Ms. Connick said of the property, “the sun rises over the living room and sets over the kitchen and porch. I’ve loved sitting out there in the mornings and evenings—Harry and the girls know they can usually find me there. It’s torture to think of leaving this home—we’ve raised our three children here—and our passion has always been architecture and building, so we are looking forward to another project. Completely remodeled and updated by Mark Finlay Architects, the 11,598-square-foot antique barn features seven bedrooms, including a master bedroom with a fireplace and French doors leading to a balcony overlooking the heated pool; six full baths and two half-baths; a kitchen, family room and library with reclaimed chestnut from the original structure; massive stone floors from the south of France throughout the home; and matching cupolas on the main house, main barn and pool house. Two of the barns on the property are outfitted, respectively, with a recording studio and gym. Offered at $6,900,000

Spectacular Oceanfront

Marrying two generously-sized seaside homesites that stretch along the Southeastern Atlantic shoreline, the property at 58/59 Surfsong Road on stunning Kiawah Island offers an unprecedented opportunity to own 120 feet of spectacular ocean frontage, plus an extra 25 feet of ocean view, along ten miles of uninterrupted beach.

At 1.35 acres, this homesite can easily accommodate an extensive family retreat, a private beachfront estate, or two separate homes. And with a charming 3,800-square-foot beach cottage currently located on one portion of the parcel, there’s a ready-made place to enjoy the Atlantic beach lifestyle even while the remainder of the property is crafted into the ideal coastal retreat. This property’s location behind Kiawah’s second security gate ensures extra privacy and proximity to the Kiawah Island Club’s member-exclusive amenities, including the top-tier Beach Club, Tom Fazio-designed River Course, riverside Sasanqua Spa, acclaimed Marsh House, and world-class dining and sporting locales. (A Kiawah Island Club membership is available with the purchase of this property.) Just down the beach, too, lies the world-renowned Ocean Course, home of the 2012 and 2021 PGA Championships and site of the famous 1991 “War by the Shore” Ryder Cup.

Kiawah is a rarity even among luxury communities, renowned for its preservation of nature. Dolphins strand-feed along the shore. Deer sightings on the beach are familiar to residents. The Kiawah River and the quietly rippling water of creeks meander through wide tidal marshes of long, undulating green and gold grasses. Serene ponds and tidal lagoons dot the island, nestled in maritime forests filled with grand live oaks, palmettos, and native vegetation. And just 21 miles down a lane bordered by picturesque farm fields and horse ranches lies historic Charleston with its cobblestone streets, renowned for its preservation of historic architecture. Travel + Leisure magazine’s Top City in the World, Charleston provides Kiawah residents with additional culinary and leisure options, from world-class events like the Spoleto Art Festival to the regionally renowned Charleston Wine + Food Festival.

Philadelphia Dreaming

Katharine Hepburn is draped languidly upon a terrace lounge. Cary Grant’s eyes twinkle above the rim of his martini glass. Philadelphia’s Main Line. Sparkling, sophisticated, absolutely aspirational.

The Main Line spurs out from the city along the rail route west, the town names are storied. Among them: Villanova, Haverford, Bala Cynwyd, Bryn Mawr, Gladwyne and Penn Valley. They are among the wealthiest, most coveted communities in the country. Just the place to write your own Philadelphia Story.

In Penn Valley, a private lane leads to a grand stone 1930s manor house designed by renowned Philadelphia architect Erling Pedersen. It is among the rarest of the rare, an English country house set upon three magnificent acres.

“This is one of the most special properties we’ve had the pleasure of being part of,” says Jennifer Rinella who is co-listing the property with Jane Hall, both multi-award winning agents with BHHS Fox and Roach Realtors. “It feels like you’re in the country, but you’re in the city in fifteen minutes. That’s pretty amazing.”

And, Hall adds, “it’s only a couple of stops on Amtrak into New York City -- you can be there in under two hours.”

While the five-bedroom, five-bath home has been beautifully updated, original architectural details have been meticulously preserved. The original sweeping staircase highlights the grand two-story foyer, fireplaces warm the splendid living room, formal dining room and the sublime master suite with its balcony view of rolling hills, glorious gardens, pool and spa.

You can also see the out buildings, the storybook gardener’s cottage, the guest apartment over the four-car garage and the barn, perfect for horses we’re assured. “You don’t usually have that this close to the city,” says Rinella.

“It’s a great family home with the feel of an estate,” says Hall. “It’s warm, nicely sized and has easy access to all Philadelphia has to offer.”

And that setting is to sigh for, which Rinella readily does. “When I’m waiting for appointments, I sit on the patio looking over gardens and think -- I can just sit here forever.”
