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

Calvary Training Center - Bluffton, South Carolina

The Calvary Training Center is a picture-perfect property with a host of potential uses including commercial stables, single family homes, daycare, worship, school, public services or government. In addition to the beautiful setting, underneath the property sits an extensive water/sewer/drainage infrastructure that can handle a 100 unit development. 

 “The Center's quality, scope and attention to detail offers the owner a wide range of possibilities, all conveniently located in historic and picturesque Bluffton, SC near I-95, between Hilton Head, SC and Savannah, GA,” says Realtor Mike Hosang, Carolina Real Estate Company.

In 2002, owner James Taylor bought the tree-shaded property to house his daughters’ eight horses and their equestrian dreams.  “It was just a ranch house and beat-up old barn,” he recalls. “We got a group of horse trainers, groomsmen, and designers to create the ultimate efficient horse facility for training Arabian and show horses.”

Taylor has spared no expense in developing the property’s infrastructure and facilities. Today, there’s  a modern barn, an educational center and  beautiful 5,000 square foot home with a commercial kitchen, seven bedrooms,  4 ½ bathrooms and low-country coastal charm.

The 43+ picturesque acres are home to a beautiful lake stocked with catfish and a world-class equestrian facility. “In addition to the 25 horse stalls, automatic water and hay storage, a working tack room & show tack rooms, grooms’ employee lounge & bathroom, 8-horse grooming & wash area, all under one roof  where you can work your horses from start to finish without getting wet, there is an attached lighted and covered 42,000 square foot arena,” says Taylor with humility.

The 5,500 square foot Ministry Center attached to the barn features eight classrooms, men’s and women’s bathrooms, showers, and reception area. There is also a six-office area attached to the arena with additional reception area and showers.  “When people drive up, it’s like something out of a Pat Conroy novel because of its drama and beauty. There’s nothing else like it,” says Taylor.

This sprawling lowlands property is a wise investment, centrally located between two major cities and just minutes from charming historical downtown Bluffton known for its excellent schools, adorable shops, convenient services and country pleasures (fishing, farmers’ markets, & art festivals.)

If the Walls Could Speak - Westport Connecticut

There is a magic one senses when they pass through the front door of this home, formerly part of the Bedford /Vanderbilt estate on the Gold Coast of Westport Connecticut. Presided over by the matriarch, Louise Levin, also lovingly known as “The Queen,” the house served as her ever-evolving palette from which to entertain an eclectic troop of artists, diplomats, musicians and hordes of friends dragged home by her twins. It was a true hearth of love, culture and adventure, which can still be felt permeating throughout the property.

There is elegance to the simplicity and nature of the place. You can sense the late-night conversations held in the hilltop gazebo during summer nights. You can feel the energy from the canoeing adventures had at the beach next-door and the enjoyment of the outdoor rain shower after a long day on the water. You can smell the herb gardens and honeysuckle from around the pool in the summer and the smoke from the numerous fire places during the winter. But most importantly, for the right people, it will not be hard to imagine how your family would seamlessly make it their own to continue to create stories and memories.

When this bohemian chic country estate trades, Jesse Levin, through his initiative Tactivate which meshes Special Operations veteran and entrepreneurial communities will be donating $25,000 to Team Rubicon Global (TRG). TRG is a military veteran service organization Jesse and the Levin family has had the honor to have worked closely with for years. Team Rubicon started as an organization that deployed military veterans and professional first responders from the U.S. to large-scale international and stateside disasters. It has grown and evolved over the years, and Team Rubicon Global is now taking the model internationally, helping other countries to establish their own skilled-volunteer emergency response teams, enabling more veterans to continue to serve and have a positive impact as civilians. 

The property can currently be booked as a vacation rental, with details on the website.
