Spanish Wells on Hilton Head Island

Spanish Wells Plantation’s name is derived from the fresh water springs (or wells) on the island’s bluff overlooking Calibogue Sound. First discovered by the Native Americans who often used and later introduced these wells to the Spaniards, this incredibly special area of Hilton Head Island continues to awe and inspire those fortunate enough to explore homeownership along the waterfront peninsula called Brams Point.

Homes that exist here are perfectly placed between the Intracoastal Waterway and Broad Creek. Boasting more than 140 feet of water frontage, nearly every room at 64 Brams Point contains its own astounding view.  With both eastern and western exposures, the sun can be found rising and setting across both waterways each morning and evening.  Add to that the deepwater dock along the protected waters of Broad Creek, and a more compelling boater’s paradise would be most difficult to imagine.


Encompassing three full floors of living space with multiple porches, the 6,888-square-foot estate contains six spacious bedrooms, each with en-suite baths.  The grandiose gourmet kitchen opens to the main living room and adjoins offset dining areas, both formal and informal.  In the kitchen, the quartz countertops are paired perfectly with the custom-built cabinetry. Offset from the kitchen is a nearby screened alcove that overlooks the heated saltwater pool and spa below. The pool has a spillover waterfall and a fire feature, creating the perfect poolside setting.

The estate has excellent separation, making it ideal for multigenerational living. The first floor has its own living room, two separate bedrooms and contains a fully-equipped bar with direct access to the rear gardens, pool and dock.  In addition, there exists an owner's office suite, multiple storage areas, indoor and outdoor half baths and a third-floor loft with den area. The home’s private elevator services all three floors.
 
This spacious home is craftsmanship at its finest, featuring hardwoods throughout the interior and a stucco exterior accented with attractive stonework.  64 Brams Point was constructed by Randy Jeffcoat Builders, and was the recipient of three Hilton Head Island LightHouse Awards in 2016, including honors for Best Exterior, Best Kitchen, and Best Overall.

The Nation’s Oldest City

As the nation’s oldest continually inhabited city, historic St. Augustine is still home to the majestic beauty that the Europeans discovered and developed upon in the 1500s. Positioned on the east coast of Florida, the quaint town lies only hours from major metropolitan cities such as Jacksonville, Orlando and Daytona Beach.

With natural waterways winding through the small town and the Atlantic Ocean at your fingertips, St. Augustine is a haven for water sports including sailing, fishing and kayaking.  A plethora of marinas are sprinkled throughout the city, offering waterway access to St. Augustine’s active occupants and thriving tourism market. The alluring alcove boasts 43 miles of pristine beaches, accommodating all types of beach-goers.


“There is nothing that can compare to it in the state of Florida. It really is like a European city on the beach in Florida. We have amazing waterways. The natural beauty of this town is spectacular. We have beautiful white sand beaches. Our bay front by the historical downtown and marsh views are just incredible,” says Jennifer Bryndal of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices.

Historic downtown St. Augustine is a flourishing industry for local business owners. For such a small town, it is brimming with culture. On any given day, one could stroll through downtown and hear the melodies of native musicians playing live from local bars and restaurants.


Donna Matthews of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices describes St. Augustine as active and energetic. “It’s very hip. It’s a very healthful city. There are several organic eateries, yoga studios and other healthy-living businesses. It’s young and vibrant. It’s like a European city that has been transplanted into America because it still has the small town feel with cobblestone streets.”

St. Augustine tops the charts as one of the best places to raise a family, take a getaway vacation or even to retire. Rich in history with a unique waterfront lifestyle, nothing compares to living on the waterfront in St. Augustine.

Vacation is Forever on Sanibel and Captiva

Sanibel and Captiva islands have no chain restaurants, no traffic lights, and no strip malls, there’s just nature at it’s very best, a small-town feel, magnificent white sand beaches, and those famous shells.

In fact, these glorious islands, curving along the west coast of Florida, create a giant scoop, collecting conch, coquina, and sand dollars with the tide flow. The best shelling in the world, they say. Fishing? Grouper, snapper, and tarpon abound in the turquoise waters.

For nature lovers, over 2/3 of the island is conservation or city owned land, protected forever from overdevelopment, with extensive bike paths, and a wildlife refuge where flocks of pink flamingos wade in crystal pools.

Realtor Jim Hall, owner and managing partner of VIP Realty's Sanibel and Captiva offices, came on vacation 26 years ago, and never left. “It’s the laid back, casual lifestyle,” he says of the place where he and his wife Karen raised their four children.  “It’s very private and safe, peaceful, little inclement weather, and among the best schools in Florida.”


Single family homes here range from $400,000 to $9 million, with condominiums starting at about $300,000 and topping $3.5 million.

A bridge away is ultra luxurious Captiva, a narrow island, with homes tucked into magnificent vegetation lining the single road leading into the village, with its fine restaurants and general store.

For just over $2 million, Hall has on offer a classic cottage with a private pool. Nestled in bougainvillea and palms, with a fine front porch and a picket fence, the 2700 square foot charmer has “an unpretentious, unstuffy island feel,” and is steps to the beach and downtown dining.

As for getting away from getting away from it all? You’re a Junonia shell’s toss from the high-end shopping and dining in Naples, and the international airport for a sprint overseas.

Old Naples’ Most Exquisite Neighborhood - Naples, Florida

White-sand beaches and streets dotted with palm trees give Naples its well-known appeal, but the town has much more to offer. Florida is known for luxury living, and Naples offers one of the most upscale neighborhoods in the state: Port Royal.

“The neighborhood is surrounded by water on three sides,” states Carl Dittrich, Broker at Barefoot Beach PropertiesSM. In fact, most lots provide residents with direct, no-bridge access to the Gulf and some have enough space to accommodate yachts in excess of 100 feet. “It’s a yachter’s dream.”

Making the exquisite Port Royal neighborhood even more appealing is the bustle of an active real estate market. Five of the exclusive neighborhood properties in excess of $10 million recently went under contract. “We are privileged to have been involved with three of these transactions,” states Dittrich.

According to A. Vernon Allen, one of the top two local builders in Naples together with BCB Homes, 58 properties are currently under construction in Port Royal. Of those 48 are already spoken for, leaving just 10 available for sale.

Port Royal Club offers residents resort style amenities and beach access to the stunning Gulf of Mexico. “They have everything from toes-in-the-sand dining to spa services,” Dittrich states. The Club fosters a sense of community among Port Royal homeowners and provides the ideal location for everything from birthday parties to weddings.

Port Royal is also perfectly situated among the Olde Naples community just minutes from private aviation services via Naples Municipal Airport and the finest in shopping and dining in historic downtown.

“Old Naples offers boutique style shopping on tree lined streets complimented by beautiful landscaping,” states Cynthia Joannou, Broker/Associate at Barefoot Beach PropertiesSM.

“Third Street is a quiet, insider-secret for the locals,” states Joannou, while Fifth Avenue offers residents a livelier, late-night vibe for an evening out on the town.

Travel down Galleon Drive, which is lined by a canopy of Banyan Trees, to a residence recently listed by Barefoot Beach PropertiesSM that boasts newer construction and a staggering 10,000 square feet under roof. Most spectacular is the 180-degree, panoramic view of Port Royal’s pristine Buccaneers Bay.

Dittrich and Joannou help their clients not only with the purchase or sale of their home, but also with new construction projects from ground breaking to finishing touch, and are ready to help you discover your Florida oasis today.

Live Large in Dallas - Highland Park

This iconic Highland Park residence has been restored in exquisite detail and expanded to more than 12,000 square feet of sumptuous living space surrounded by lush gardens, water features and multiple outdoor living areas.  Known as the Ferris Mansion, the house was built in 1923 on an oversized corner lot, with prominent craftsmen from the northeastern U.S. and Europe enlisted to execute its elaborate stone, glass and hand carved wood details. 


A three-year restoration and expansion began in 2008 to preserve and amplify the original architect’s Italian Renaissance aesthetic with new infrastructure and a floor plan for modern entertaining and everyday living.  The result is a seamless integration of important architecture, modern convenience and timeless style with six bedrooms, five baths, three half baths, seven living areas inside and three outdoor living areas. 
 
The front section of the house includes a grand entry hall and two formal living rooms on the first level.  On axis with the living room fireplace, a gallery lined with arched glass doors extends south uniting the formal living areas with an elegant dining room, a spacious kitchen and an incredible two-story paneled library.  A double staircase from the gallery descends to an extraordinary underground entertaining space with a game room, bar, wine cellar, tasting room, theater and gym—all groin vaulted beneath the swimming pool and garden.

The second level of the home features four bedroom suites, a living room, domestic space and the master suite.  Occupying much of the second level of the front of the house, the master suite is private and truly breathtaking with every amenity including a private loggia overlooking the pool.
 
Mature trees, cut stone walkways and cast stone details frame the beautiful landscape that surrounds the house.  Arched glass doors throughout the main level open to picturesque grounds, terraces and elegant outdoor living areas, uniting the whole property for entertaining and creating a serene and restful daily living environment like no other.


Located near the Dallas Country Club, outstanding schools and the finest dining and shopping venues in Texas.

A native Texan, Alex Trusler is the Executive Vice President and Broker Associate of Trusler-Seale and works with Briggs Freeman | Sotheby’s International Realty.  He has been helping discriminating clients find the perfect home since 2008.

Palatial Living in the Heart of Chicago - Chicago, Illinois

Setting a new record for scale and luxury at a listing price of $50 million is an unprecedented urban estate in exclusive Lincoln Park, on what is “arguably the best residential street in Chicago,” says Matt Leutheuser of Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty.

Leutheuser, who is co-listing the 25,000 square foot mansion along with Tim Salm, says the details are extraordinary, with materials sourced from around the globe; primarily influenced by classic French architecture and design. 

Nestled in extravagant gardens with fountains, a reflecting pool, and a grand pavilion on over eight contiguous city lots, the realtor says, “You feel like you’re in the middle of the French countryside -- in the middle of the city. To acquire this many contiguous lots in Lincoln Park is next to impossible.” 

Throughout the house, each room is graced with intricate marble and stone work, antique features and elements, magnificent fireplaces and elaborately carved plaster moldings. A spectacular rotunda, with a marble floor and gold leafed staircase soars three levels, crowning the entryway. 

“The wine cellar is absolutely stunning and is modeled after the stables of Versailles,” says Leutheuser. 

This is a home for entertaining on an embassy scale, with multiple expansive living areas, including the ball room, music room, library, media room, and game room, surrounded by windows and flowing out to the fabulous sprawling terrace. There’s an unimaginable amount of outdoor space for entertaining along with impressive manicured gardens which surround the property.

“Absolutely no detail has been overlooked in this home” says Leutheuser, who is recognized as one of the city's top producers by the Chicago Association of Realtors.

Yet, this is an impressively comfortable family home as well, with six bedrooms, including a master suite that redefines luxury, and a bespoke kitchen that’s beyond belief. 

“Perfect,” says Leutheuser, “for the individual that can appreciate the level of detail this home offers and who understands that an opportunity like this may not come along again.  It could take years, if it’s even possible, to put together this amount of land and build this level of home”

Alpine Woods retains a sense of privacy and self-indulgent delight.  The only problem with purchasing this home is that you will never want to leave… but what's wrong with that?  Offered at $1,050,000.
