Sail Away to Cape Cod

Touch football on the lawn, white sails startling against blue skies, fabulous ocean front estates lining the shores. The seven villages that comprise the Cape Cod town of Barnstable are famous for such sights.

While the Cape was once considered exclusively a summer place, “with the internet and smart phones many live here ‘year-round.” says Robert Kinlin of the award-winning, boutique real estate firm of Robert Paul Properties. “You can also drive to Boston in a little over an hour – fly there in 15 minutes.”

Now on offer in Osterville, rubbing shoulders with the Kennedy compound in Hyannis Port, a magnificent estate set on an extraordinary 5.46 acres with a near-panoramic view of the East Bay and Nantucket Sound.

Built at the height of the Roaring Twenties, the completely updated 11,578-square-foot, nine-bedroom residence manages to be stately, elegant and a delightful family home and retreat. “It’s very warm and inviting, with large rooms and high ceilings,” says Kinlin, “but you’re not swallowed up by the space. It has great balance.” Custom fireplaces enhance the living room, the library and a dining room that seats 25. For informal living there’s a family room, an enclosed porch and sunroom. And, he says, “Every room has a view.”

Two kitchens serve family and caterer, with a mahogany and glass butler’s pantry bridging the two.

There are nine bedrooms, including two master suites, all with baths original to the house, though completely modernized. A carriage house with three more bedrooms is above the five-car garage. Set well back from the street, above the flood plain, the property is wide and deep, with a lawn that wanders down to a dock and beach house for boating, fishing and swimming. A fabulous pool and spa overlook the water.

“It’s a feel-good house,” he says. “A great place to raise kids.”

Just a few minutes away is the center of Osterville. Quaint, yet sophisticated, it is one of few villages on the Cape with a downtown with shopping and restaurants. There are also five bays for fishing, marinas, two private clubs with golf and tennis, and an airport for a quick commute. Price Upon Request.

Winter Haven - Florida Ranch

Where is the Horse Capitol of the world? Deep in the heart of Florida. There’s scarcely a palm tree to be seen in the town of Ocala, just plenty of towering live oaks lining scenic roads, rolling hills and crystal springs. "You don't think you're in Florida,” says Realtor Joan Pletcher, “But you can be in Orlando or Tampa in an hour, and Gainesville in thirty minutes."

This Marion County town has more than 600 farms and fifty breeds of horses including Thoroughbreds, Fox trotters, Arabians, Quarter Horses and Paso Finos, a smaller horse that Pletcher says has "a gait so smooth you can carry a glass of water." Traversed by the Marjorie Harris Cross Florida Greenway, Ocala features paths for hiking, biking and running, superb golfing and miles of trail for riding. The centerpiece, though, is the Florida Horse Park, which offers international caliber competitions that draw top competitors from every discipline --from dressage to polo. The newest addition to the area is the World Equestrian Center South, which will be opening in 2018. This state-of-the-art venue has a 140,000-square-foot arena, 4 indoor arenas, 17 outdoor arenas, with climate-controlled stalls, barns and arenas. Hotels, fine dining, and retail space with be available.

She also knows the local turf. Esteemed for her exceptional service, professionalism and integrity, Joan’s ultimate joy and success come from matching her clients with perfect equestrian estates, Ocala horse farms and major parcels of Ocala land. Newly listed is Winter Haven Farm, 1,086 immaculate acres on coveted Millionaire’s Row – with gorgeous views of the hills and trees from 200 feet above sea level. The property features a 5/8-mile turf track, multiple staff and guest residences, offices, five gated entrances, two apartments and four fully equipped barns, including a 22-stall main barn, a 16-stall mare barn and two stallion barns.

“This is a unique opportunity to own an outstanding equestrian property,” says Pletcher. And a magnificent place to build the estate home of your dreams.

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.”

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”

Boasting a vibrant, lively community, “Chestnut Hill is this architecturally rich little hamlet that straddles Fairmount Park,” states Michael Sivel, of The Sivel Group. ‘The Avenue’ is a popular, unique cobblestone drag offering the best in shopping and dining. Additionally, Chestnut Hill offers residents an array of activities year-round, including concerts and festivals which bring life to the summer, while winters are spent ice-skating in Fairmount Park. All the while, Philadelphia’s bustling  Center City is just minutes away and easily accessible by one of two train lines that run on the east and west sides of ‘The Avenue.’

Living in such an acclaimed neighborhood is further complimented by exquisite, condominium living at One West. One West has been masterfully constructed to provide residents with unique, refined condominium living right in the heart of Chestnut Hill. The property offers living spaces in multiple sizes from one-bedroom, two bathroom units with a study to an incredible four-bedroom, three and a half bathroom penthouse. One of the most appealing and unique features of One West is an abundance of outdoor space for the units. Nearly every unit offers a terrace, while the penthouse offers a stunning 1800-square-foot outdoor living space. “This is really a unique, one-of-a-kind, contemporary urban lifestyle within the great village of Chestnut Hill,” says Sivel, “There’s nothing else like it in Philadelphia.”
