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.

Build Your Dream Waterfront Home on Greenwich Cove

Greenwich waterfronts come down to three elements. Location, light and view. A house can be built anywhere but if you have a great location, it is unique and a forever home.  Riverside waterfronts are special and the setting is always changing. Hide tide, low tide, winter ice, simmering summer light, wind and sun-sets and sunrises.

For those who want a year-round feeling of being on vacation, Riverside’s private Willowmere Association features exclusive homes, many with a private beach and dock where you can enjoy boating, swimming and dramatic sunrises across to Long Island Sound and Tod's Point. Close to the village, excellent schools and the train to Manhattan, it’s an extraordinary location.

Overlooking panoramic views of the water, 73 Willowmere Circle offers an exceptional opportunity to enjoy Greenwich Cove out to Long Island Sound from your back windows and Willowmere Pond from your front.  On this incomparable property, you can build your dream home complete with a private dock and make merry memories.
 
The property’s history is fascinating. In 1640, English settlers purchased the land for twenty-five coats. The core of what is now Willowmere was a wedding present to Caroline Ferris by her dad in 1850.  In 1872 Amasa Abraham Marks purchased the land for $10,500 to develop a Willow Plantation and stock farm for his factory that made prosthetics for Civil War amputees from willow trees. The Willowmere Stock Farm was home to famed black stallion King Alair, the fastest horse in the world.
 
In 1919 when Mark’s sons developed the land, establishing the Willowmere Association in 1929 to protect the property value, roads and beachfront. This desirable waterfront property is a remarkable find and a sound investment (the most expensive waterfront home sold here for $15,250,000 in 2016).

In the decades since Willowmere was developed, much has changed. But its essential character remains a desirable waterfront neighborhood where children play on the beach and ride their bikes.

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England Properties is a real estate firm specializing in luxury homes in prestigious neighborhoods. Realtor Ann Simpson is a luxury home specialist with 20 years experience in Greenwich CT and a distinguished top producer with numerous awards. Simpson believes the greatest compliment is a referral.

Make Beautiful Music in a House by the Sea

“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. 

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 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 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.”  Offered at $15,950,000.

Iconic Waterfront Residence

Harbor Beach is Fort Lauderdale’s most exclusive residential neighborhood with the highest price per square footage of water frontage in Broward County due to the proximity to the inlet and ocean.

The neighborhood has two guardhouse entries with webcam and a private security patrol area that reports all activity in the subdivision to residents via email. This security patrol also monitors your property while you’re on vacation.

A private marina offers residents the opportunity to keep their yacht within the community and still have unobstructed waterfront views from their home. Residents can also relax at the private beach club with barbecue area, restrooms, chairs and umbrellas, and attendants for residents only.

Located at 76 Isla Bahia Drive is an iconic residence offering unparalleled views of the Intracoastal waterway. Listed for the first time, this legendary residence was initially constructed in 1964 for Ohio industrialist and songwriter Bob Friedman and his wife, Genie, one of the granddaughters of Oscar Mayer.

This expansive piece of property has over 600-feet of deep waterfront  comprised of 5 lots that wrap the perimeter of Isla Bahia. Ideal for the avid yachtsman, the property has a straight-line linear dockage that can handle dockage in excess of 150-200 feet. Additionally, the curve of the property allows for a boat to be kept on property without impeding on the picturesque waterfront views.

The 9,400-square-foot home has 7 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and 3 half-bathrooms as well as a 3-car garage. The design of the home has a mid-century flare with a Bahamian twist and has been meticulously maintained over the years. Relax next to the waterside pool or in the enclosed spa that opens up to the environment, or strike up a tennis match on your own private court.

“Newly priced to sell at $22.5 million, this property is perfect for a boater looking to dock his large vessel on a premiere property, someone looking to make a statement in purchasing this trophy property with incredible views, or a developer looking to divide the property into multiple parcels,” says real estate specialist Peter Barkin, Karen Bellows and Mark Gilman of Barkin Gilman and Associates. “The response to the new price has been outstanding, especially to interested buyers who have found us globally via the internet.”

Toast the Sunsets on Clearwater Beach

Located on Clearwater Beach, an award-winning stretch of Florida’s western coast, rests Pura Vida: the height of coastal luxury living. This stunning hideaway offers its residence with privacy, serenity and spacious units unlike any other.  These twenty-two luxurious condominiums overlook the Gulf of Mexico and a white sand beach that's frequently considered one of the best in the United States.

 

Pura Vida is situated at the quiet north end of Pinellas County’s gorgeous, two and a half mile long barrier island, and is just a stroll away from fine shopping and dining. Each unit in the intimately scaled, boutique-style building features three bedrooms, three and a half baths, and balconies for toasting brilliant sunsets. “It’s complete turn-key,” says project manager Kal Patel, of Avalon Land Holdings, LLC, the building developer.  “Tremendous thought and research went into the contemporary layouts and appointments.”


Spacious and open with ten-foot ceilings and floor to ceiling windows, the fixtures, flooring, and appliances are all high-end.  Gorgeous spa baths feature exotic stone tiles; living room wet bars include wine coolers; and Thermador appliances are specified for the sleekly modern Euro-styled kitchens.

During this build out phase, upgraded packages will be available, with buyers able to specify Miele appliances, for example. “We want to make sure the end users will be happy,” says Patel.


Individual condominiums are priced from $985,000 to $1.4 million, depending on the size of the units, which range from 2200 to 2900 square feet. The property is attracting interest from both & ldquo; snow birds & rdquo; and residents of nearby Sarasota, Naples, and Tampa, says Patel. With the ground scarcely broken, five units have already been reserved.  

Amenities include a resort-style pool with spa jets, a well-equipped fitness facility, a spacious club room for parties and relaxation, 24-hour security, air conditioned storage and covered parking for two cars per residence.
