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.”

Kiehn Realty Company

When Jay Kiehn first moved to the Tampa Bay area from New York 3-1/2 years ago he was in search of an investment property, but instead found a new business idea.

"Unfortunately, I found it difficult to hear back from anyone in a timely fashion when I was searching for an investment property to purchase personally - if I heard back at all," says Kiehn. That experience is what triggered the development of Kiehn Realty Company, a full-service brokerage, vacation rental and property management company in Tampa Bay.

Specializing in luxury real estate and property management, Kiehn Realty Company offers excellent communication between its team of agents and clients, a crucial key to creating the ultimate client experience. Coupled with their expertise in crunching numbers (courtesy of Kiehn's background in accounting and finance), Kiehn Realty Company offers trustworthy information and advice every step of the way. More specifically, Kiehn Realty Company offers a listing fee of only 1% - a noticeable contrast to the normal 2-3% fees seen elsewhere. Additionally, their property management services (encompassing residential and commercial properties) offer a flat 10% fee with no lease up fees, which is typical of industry competitors.

With a primary focus on Pinellas and Hillsborough counties, Kiehn Realty Company also services surrounding areas such as Pasco, Polk and Sarasota/Manatee counties. Additionally, they welcome any clientele seeking industry experts - even outside the state of Florida - with enthusiasm.

“The future for Kiehn Realty Company is expansion,” says Kiehn. “We want to be able to offer our expert service and advice on luxury real estate and property management wherever it’s needed and wherever the market takes us.”

Villa Sena

Sprawling upon two acres of Longboat Key’s exclusive waterfront sits a Mediterranean estate with 150 feet of pristine beach frontage. From this magnificent property, unobstructed views of the Gulf of Mexico span as far as the eye can see. Resort-like amenities welcome you as you enter this private enclave, where only the highest quality materials and craftsmanship are displayed throughout. Matching dual staircases on the exterior and in the entryway extend like open arms unfolding to invite you in. Inside the Mediterranean masterpiece known as “Villa Sena,” architectural grandeur and Neoclassical finishes create a seamless flow that draw you in. Custom wrought iron railings greet you at the door, leading up the mahogany staircases and continuing on the upper level balconies. Mahogany touches unify the home’s design, highlighted by the two-story mahogany-paneled library modeled after the renowned Biltmore House Library in North Carolina. A peaceful serenity envelopes you within this gated property. Surrounded by dense foliage, the 4-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom main house and 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom guest house luxuriate in more than 10,000 square feet of solitude. Sugary white sand and sunset views can be enjoyed in your own backyard, complete with outdoor showers, a walk-in pool with underwater seating and an attached spa. Tiered terraces call for grand outdoor entertaining, and arched Clerestory windows and wall-to-wall glass doors offer cohesive indoor/outdoor flow. An HGTV Design Star finalist, Villa Sena resides on a posh private stretch of the 10.8-mile-long key, surrounded by famous neighbors. While secluded in essence, this breathtaking home remains in close proximity to upscale boutique shopping, mouthwatering cuisine, exquisite entertainment and fine arts. Abundant outdoor activities are at your fingertips, including golf, tennis and boating. However, most homeowners escape to this quiet island of direct beachfront multi-million dollar homes for uninhibited relaxation. This is a unique opportunity to purchase a beachfront estate that includes a separate 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom guest house and unobstructed views of the Gulf with forever sunsets,” says Ryan Ackerman of Coldwell Banker Global Luxury.

Homeowners looking for a place to slip away into serenity need not look further than the exclusive and luxurious Villa Sena.

Aether Estate Sales Co.

Lee Parson grew up in a family of auctioneers, and spent his youth in auction houses watching high-end antiques and upscale household items sell for pennies on the dollar. When affluent homeowners downsize, he thought, they should get a considerable return for a lifetime’s worth of accumulations. In 2013 Lee and his wife started Aether Estate Sales Co., a full-service downsizing and asset liquidation company that manages the entire process of organizing, inventorying and selling the contents of an estate.

“Most people don’t know that an industry like this exists. They’ll just take the contents of a full home and send it to auction,” says Parson. “You may have very upscale furniture pieces that we could sell for $2,000, selling for $10 - $12 at auction.”

Parson and his team of professionals are renowned for their meticulous consideration of each estate, as well as their abundance of marketing for each sale. Oftentimes once the contracts are signed, the homeowners leave the state or country and trust Parson to deliver the keys of an empty home to the new homeowners. Each event typically attracts 500-1,500 patrons, with exceptional estates seeing up to 5,000 shoppers. The homes are arranged to feel like a boutique. Each item is evaluated and barcoded, providing for a transparent and convenient transaction between all involved parties. Only a certain number of individuals are granted access to the home at a time, and each are fitted with shoe coverings to preserve the condition of the house. Buyers can expect to find household items of all kinds.

“We’ll sell your home décor and your Aston Martin and everything in between,” says Parson.

The company’s successful business model has recently lent itself to a franchising opportunity. Shoppers and clients are provided with a streamlined estate sale experience, and franchisees are afforded continued support and collaboration from an established brand.

“We’re now franchising our business across the nation. We see realtors being ideal for this opportunity because they already have the contacts and are doing the networking,” Parson says. “We’re in the same field, we’re just selling different things. Realtors sell the houses, we sell the contents.”

Elk River Club Blends Community with Natural Grandeur

Located in Banner Elk, North Carolina and nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Elk River offers a variety of activities for bringing together family and friends. Boasting a Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf course that consistently ranks among the state's Top 10 courses, golf is certainly the main attraction. However, that is only the beginning of all Elk River has to offer.

Residents and visitors have the luxury of arriving to Elk River via private jet or corporate aircraft, accommodated by the 4,600-ft. on-site jet port. The 50,000-square-foot clubhouse complex stuns with elegant custom interiors. Surrounding the clubhouse are sweeping mountain views. Atop the mountain sits the Saddle Club equestrian center, accompanied by miles of tree-lined riding trails through the elevations.

Also available to residents are the Wellness and Fitness Center, complete with Nautilus equipment, saunas and a heated pool, and the comprehensive Tennis Center. Dedicated park areas with cascading streams and long range views of the beautiful Blue Ridge adorn the property. A Class-A stocked catch and release trout fishing river sits adjacently, proving there is truly something every member of the family will enjoy.

 “Our outstanding amenities and community, combined with the natural scenic beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains, provides the perfect setting for families to gather closer - to create memories that turn into traditions, and legacies that last for generations,” says Rick Foster, president of Elk River Realty.

Stately homes tucked along the rolling hillsides offer breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, cascading mountain streams, shimmering lakes and of course the immaculately groomed fairways. Residents can look across the layered mountains deep into eastern Tennessee from Elk River’s Sunset Park, altitude 4,750 feet.

The community’s design blends perfectly into the natural beauty and contour of the Carolina mountain landscape. Here, daytime summer temperatures average in the 70s and summer evenings bring comfortable temperatures in the 50s.

It’s no wonder Jack Nicklaus selected Elk River as the site for his first North Carolina Signature Golf Course. It was the perfect setting for the perfect plan to blend a North Carolina Top Ten course into a community of exquisite natural beauty.

Sprawling Waterfront Estate

John-Mark M. Mitchell is selling a haute property. It is the last of the Legacy Estates and this is the first time it has ever been offered to the public. Spanning more than 189 picturesque acres, the estate’s owners placed objects of art on the property as a reflection of their love for the creativity of man. Marketing a unique estate is not an unusual event for Mitchell, the number one luxury home specialist in North Carolina’s “Triad” region. Wayne Yarbrough, the Broker in Charge of Mitchell Prime Properties and the co-marketer of the estate, believes this is the finest property ever offered in the Triad area. The landscaping was conceptualized by Mr. Brooks Wingington, the landscape architect who designed Wheeling Park in West Virginia. Mr. Roy Wallace of Winston-Salem, who conceived many of the area’s large estates, was the architect. The estate encompasses a 9,000+-square-foot main home with breathtaking details, including a 150-year-old Waterford crystal chandelier, as well as a boat house with guest accommodations and a 22-acre lake.

Mitchell is all about being in real estate’s forefront. He has been profiled numerous times, recognized by Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate International and was recently lionized as a “game changer” by Fortune Magazine in January 2016; the only real estate firm owner to be featured. Fitting, as a lion named Mitch is his company logo.

Mitchell’s boutique firm of 16 luxury agents has average sales that are almost double the competition. “I try not to create followers in this company,” says Mitchell. “I like to hire people that would be successful on their own -- I like to be a lion trainer in the business.”

Hear them roar.

KIM PRITCHARD

In the early 90s, as Kim Pritchard’s friends began buying their first homes, she noticed something strange. “My friends were handed long lists of properties and told to drive around and let the agents know which ones they were interested in.”

This approach did not sit well with Pritchard. “They were not being taken seriously and were given very low quality of service.” Her dedication to customer service prompted a career in real estate.

Pritchard is especially skilled in marketing and negotiating, and loves listing homes for her clients. She’s been the top-producing agent in the West Cobb office for the past 10 years and is in the top 1% of the company of more than 1,500 agents. Additionally, Pritchard was featured in Atlanta Magazine’s August 2013 and 2014 issues as a top area real estate agent.

Just a 30-minute drive to downtown Atlanta, Cobb County is a convenient location, with access to three major expressways and an international airport.

“I live, shop, dine and entertain here. My son goes to school here, and I believe it’s one of the best areas to live in,” Pritchard says.

Located in the prestigious Barrett Greene neighborhood at 2111 Ector Place is an exquisite new listing with a gorgeous redbrick exterior, hardwood floors throughout and three fireplaces.

The entire space has been custom designed by an interior designer, and includes the finest of finishes. The home, which is more than 6,000-square-feet in size, features six bedrooms and six and a half bathrooms, as well as a finished basement.
