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.

It not only looks gorgeous, but you have everything you want fresh every day. This is a really special treat that the homeowners created,” Ryken explains.

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”

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.)

Upscale Meets Casual Florida Living

Tampa possesses the expected laid-back, casual Florida lifestyle with an upscale feel. While still considered a mid-size market, Tampa has all of the amenities of a large metropolitan area including an award winning international airport, state-of-the-art medical facilities, high-end destination shopping and dining, extraordinary performing and fine arts, and major sports franchises including football, baseball and hockey. “The area attracts people of all ages, from young professionals to retirees,” says Michael Palermo of Palermo Real Estate Professionals. Primary professions include those in the legal, finance, real estate and healthcare sectors, and the area is a growing destination choice for corporate headquarter locations. With close proximity to both Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, hobbies include every water sport imaginable, from kayaking and paddle boarding, to boating and deep-sea fishing. The famous Bayshore Boulevard (claimed to be one of the longest continuous sidewalks in the world at 4.5 miles) provides scenic views of Tampa Bay and the Downtown area and is constantly bustling with runners, walkers and bikers enjoying the Florida sunshine. In addition to recreational activities, shopping and sporting events, Tampa is known as a foodie’s paradise with a plethora of independent dining establishments serving everything from homemade Italian pasta to exotic international fare. Aside from area amenities, Tampa boasts some incredible high-end luxury properties. “Inventory is currently low. We are seeing record prices for high-end properties, especially waterfront homes,” says Palermo. Popular trends in the Tampa market include open floor plans that bring in natural light and focus on the views of beautiful outdoor spaces. New construction luxury properties are trending towards a more contemporary design than the Mediterranean influence seen in the past. Whatever the design or style of these luxury homes, owners are demanding high-end technology to run the AV, lighting, HVAC, pool and even aquarium systems in their homes.

Spectacular Retreat in the Georgia Mountains

It was just a little four bedroom lodge with an adjacent stable forbison when David Pittspurchased his family retreat on top of TrayMountain in 2010. It was “rough hewn wood, very cowboy rustic,when I bought it,” he says. “I made it more appealing.” After a multi-million dollar renovation, Bison View Lodge featuresfifteen bedrooms and thirteen and a half baths. The party barnseats forty plus. There are seven fireplaces, a wrap-aroundveranda, decks, and a covered dining porch. The hot tub and firepit enjoy a grand sweeping view of mountains and trees, with notanother house in view. The lodge, which borders national forest, is set on fifteen quiet,utterly private, wooded acres. Yet, it’s just ten minutes from thetown of Helen, Georgia’s popular alpine village, where Octoberfestlasts three months. “You don’t have to go to Munich,” he says witha laugh. Pitts helicopters in, a quick thirty minute trip from Atlanta. Theproperty has a landing pad.
