Bring Your Imagination to This Rare Siesta Key Find

By Monica Cavanaugh

Florida waterfront often calls to mind Spanish architecture, beach bungalows and Miami-style bright pastels. Nestled on the north end of Siesta Key, overlooking the glittering turquoise Gulf of Mexico, is a bird of a very different feather.

Guy Peterson, the highly lauded modernist architect from Sarasota, Florida, is at the helm of a stunning build. It is fair to say that an extra amount of heart has been put into this project - Peterson spent many days during his childhood on this very property, playing and fishing in the Gulf waters.

This property which was originally the Twichell Estate, is now being presented by Robert Dinan and Tayna Vy of the Dinan Realty Group. This pre-construction offering is a rare opportunity for buyers with a discerning eye for fine architecture and the Florida entertaining lifestyle.

“This is an opportunity for someone to come in and own and build something fantastic,” says Dinan. “It’s such a unique piece of property. It is amazing that it still exists without being developed.”

This 3 bedroom, 3 ½ bath pre-construction design is set on almost a full waterfront acre at the north end of Siesta Key. This windowheavy designed home is meant to take full advantage of the barrier island’s spectacular views.

“The property faces the bay, with the Gulf on the left side and cityscape on the right side,” says Dinan. “During the day you will experience beautiful water views, and at night the back drop will be the beautiful John Ringling Bridge and the lights of downtown Sarasota.”

Situated on 108 feet frontage of deep Gulf water at Big Pass with possible dockage available, It is just a five minute bike ride to Siesta Key’s world class powder-white beaches. The location is equally as convenient to shopping and dining options at Siesta Key Village and downtown Sarasota.

Gulf Coast International Properties: Service. Integrity. Luxury Experience

By Stephanie Cavanaugh

With it's low-key lifestyle, Naples is a more casually sophisticated alternative to Florida hot spots like Palm Beach. "Here, millionaires wear flip flops -- and drive the Ferrari to buy groceries," says realtor Tim Savage.

Tim Savage and Mike McCumber co-own Gulf Coast International Properties, a boutique luxury real estate firm specializing in waterfront and beachfront property in this sublime Gulf town.

The partners offer cutting edge marketing and services, with a twist. "We're more like advisors than selling agents -- a concierge service," McCumber explains. It works. The company continually sets records across luxury markets in southwest Florida.

The partners offer cutting edge marketing and services, with a twist. "We're more like advisors than selling agents -- a concierge service," McCumber explains. It works. The company continually sets records across luxury markets in southwest Florida.

Unlike traditional firms that tend to nurture solo stars, Gulf Coast's agents work as a team, bringing agents, buyers, and listings together. "We do as many deals in the conference room as we do through the MLS," says McCumber.

They're marketing methods are also unusual, presenting properties where "like-minded buyers are already looking at other luxury items, like boats and jets. We present properties in areas where traditionally a buyer wouldn't be exposed to luxury real estate," says Savage.

And on-line marketing has become essential. "Digital space offers unlimited potential for both buyer and seller," Savage adds. "Getting us in front of a couple sitting in a cafe in Paris, looking at a smart phone...that is the future of effective luxury real estate marketing."

A superb spot to park your Ferrari is within the exclusive community of Port Royal, where residents enjoy the Port Royal Club with its state-of-the-art fitness center, Hydro-grid tennis courts, huge beach-side pool and clubhouse. Waterfront and beach front properties include some of the most luxurious homes in the United States.

For example, inside meets outside in blissful harmony at 1770 Galleon Drive, where a magnificently designed home opens to a sensational patio playground -- all overlooking gorgeous Galleon Cove.

Now that's luxury living.

Luxurious Waterfront- Wilmington, North Carolina

By Dawn Bernard

With welcoming Southern Hospitality, thriving local industry, recreation, great medical, galleries, theaters, museums; a university and several colleges; shopping and restaurants, an international airport, top rated golf courses, low taxes and the mild to tropical climates (summer averages in the upper 80°s; winters average in the upper 50°s) it is no wonder Wilmington, North Carolina has been named one of the best places to vacation, live and work in America.

Wilmington is a historical, culturally diverse city located between the Cape Fear River and the Atlantic Ocean. Wilmington’s waterfront downtown offers horse-drawn carriage rides through the cobblestone streets, antique shops, bars, live music venues and some of the finest examples of beautifully preserved 19thcentury architecture.

Waterfront homes range in style from quaint beach cottages, to stunning estates with common features of breathtaking views, dolphins, coastal birds, the smell of salt air and the quiet whisper of the distance waves.

At first visit, you'll see why so many have flocked to Wilmington’s pristine coastal lifestyle with the attractions and conveniences second to none. Once you have found Wilmington, it will not take long to discover the most prestigious community in Wilmington and very possibly on the entire East Coast. Located directly on the ICWW, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, Wrightsville Beach and Figure Eight Island is Landfall. The Country Club of Landfall hosts two golf courses, designed by Golf Legends Pete Dye and Jack Nicklaus, and a sports complex including 14 tennis courts, an extensive fitness center and an Olympic-sized pool.

RMB Building & Design, LLC Owner, Mack Braxton, has been building custom homes in Landfall and the surrounding beaches since the 1970's. Braxton believes the key to their success has been their hands-on approach and attention to detail on every project. 1100 Pembroke Jones Drive exemplifies all that RMB Building and Design, LLC stands for. It is one of the most desired addresses and residence within the gates of Landfall.

There is no greater pleasure than to wake up to a sunrise over the water, or unwind on your dock with a warm coastal breeze and the spectacular color pallet of a Coastal North Carolina sunset.

Dawn Berard, Broker Owner of Sold Buy the Sea Realty, LLC explains that there is no greater pleasure than to wake up to a sunrise over the water, or unwind on your dock with a warm coastal breeze and the spectacular color pallet of a Coastal North Carolina sunset.

Waterfront is still available and affordable in Coastal North Carolina. Don't miss the opportunity to call Wilmington, NC home!

Allure: Luxury Condominium Living on the River

Allure is the most ambitious and luxurious residential development ever created in Fort Myers, Florida. This sumptuously appointed high-rise condominium in the city’s historic River District will consist of two 32-story towers, planned to rise at 2601 First Street, on the banks of the Caloosahatchee River just a few miles from the Gulf of Mexico. 

It commands the skyline from its vantage point at one of the most scenic spots downtown, with expansive windows that frame the menagerie of yachts, sailing vessels and recreational boats coursing the waters. Allure will host a total of 292 tower residences, ranging from one- to three bedroom floor plans with some rather unique amenities. 

The Allure Your Senses Rooftop Garden, featuring permanent installations by internationally acclaimed Colombian artist Edgardo Carmona, will create a contemplative mood, along with its peaceful, landscaped riverfront promenade. A heated infinity-edge pool overlooking the glimmering river and boat slips, concierge services with a mail and receiving desk, and other luxurious conveniences ensure the best in Florida living. And of course, the entire property is wired for the latest technology including WiFi, high-speed Internet and digital voice services.

Arriving at Allure, its porte-cochere entrance is enhanced by a stunning water feature, with private entrance elevators just beyond. Its tagline, “Irresistible,” only begins to describe the magnetic appeal of building amenities such as a two-story fitness room with men’s and women’s spa facilities equipped with saunas and showers, as well as a private screening room with theater seating.

 Equally noteworthy are each of the residence’s features, ranging from natural gas cooktops and ovens in chef-inspired kitchens to magnificent sunrise-to-sunset views. Allure offers a very attractive downtown lifestyle. 

Even though the building provides assigned covered garage parking with 24-hour controlled access, residents may rarely ever need to drive to their favorite destinations in this bustling riverfront neighborhood. 

They can stroll by foot, hop on a boat or trolley to bistros, cafes, theaters, galleries, museums, historic sites, botanical gardens and nightspots. The nearby Harborside Event Center and Florida Repertory Theater feature nationally recognized performers and many of the city’s holiday celebrations take place at local Centennial Park.

Travelers' Choice Award - Destination: Ambergris Caye, Belize

Trip Advisor’s number one island sits in the Caribbean as an offshore haven near a gorgeous barrier reef and is rapidly becoming one of the hottest markets in the world. It has trumped traditional tropical destinations in many Americans’ travel plans, turning vacationers into partial and full-time residents.

The island, Belize’s Ambergis Caye, is home to the quiet town of San Pedro, where Bill Gates sips his morning coffee on his mega yacht offshore and where Leonardo diCaprio and Bradley Coopergo for morning jogs. Nestled between Mexico and Guatemala, Belize is a rapidly growing Central American country with a rich history. 

“The mainland offers the lush jungle, the rivers, the culture and the people,” described Daniel Hartin, Managing Partner at Sandy Point Real Estate Ambergris Caye. He went on to describe the melding of Mexican, Mayan and Spanish cultures that influenced what Ambergris Caye is today, a location nicknamed “the Rolex of the Caribbean.”

There are a collection of exclusive luxury resort communities on the island, many being managed by Sandy Point Real Estate. Each of the agency’s projects is unique and all have seen massive success. Whether for enjoyment or a sound investment, Hartin says four of the projects they’ve seen through have provided a 35- 45 per cent market value appreciation.

Their newest project is the Isla Tesoro Resort and Spa, which Hartin described as, “A place that’s secure and warm, geared toward the person who wants to own a titled property in a resort.” He detailed plans for the breathtaking 100 unit resort, a creative mix of Mediterranean and Contemporary styles, modeled after the rustic yet luxurious charm of Mediterranean villages. “A pool water area will encompass the entire resort, and there will be a number of gourmet restaurants offering world class food and service,” Hartin said.

He went on to chronicle Belize’s significant increase in travel accessibility, saying, "Just this year, Southwest Airlines flights to Belize has brought more than one thousand additional visitors per week."

Undoubtedly, Belize is quickly becoming both a tourist destination and investment property. From the tropical surroundings to the vibrant culture and friendly atmosphere, it’s no wonder Ambergris Caye is the place Madonna longs for in her song “La Isla Bonita”, singing “I fell in love with San Pedro, warm wind carried on the sea, he called to me…”

Florida's Finest Country Club

by Monica Cavanaugh

When asked about Boca West Country Club, located in the heart of Boca Raton, Florida, broker Ben Schachter gets right to the point: “First and foremost, it has been recognized several times over the past decade as the #1 private residential country club in the US and the #1 club, of all types, in Florida.” He laughs, “that sets the bar nice and high, right?”

It certainly does, and Boca West spares nothing to earn its praise. This summer, rather than spending a small fortune on standard clubhouse renovations, they recently opted to spend a larger fortune razing the entire thing. In 18 months, Schachter says, they’ll have “the finest golf and activities center to be found anywhere in North America.”

Even more impressive, the $50 million project is being completed without any assessment to the members. “There hasn’t been a single member assessment in over 25 years,” says Schachter.

The grand undertaking is only fitting for a club that offers such a robust array of world-class sport and leisure amenities, including four 18-hole golf courses boasting the names of Arnold Palmer, Pete Dye and Jim Fazio, an expansive and award-winning tennis center, a tropical oasis aquatic center and a spa built for royalty. That’s not to mention a variety of dining venues offering everything from Delmonico steaks to late-night sips of Drambuie on the porch.

Discover your own corner of paradise at 19645 Oakbrook Circle, a nearly 6,000 square foot designer-decorated knockout in the tony Oakbrook neighborhood within Boca West.

“It’s a spectacular home,” says Schachter. “Perfect for a large family, or for retirees who regularly host a big family from up north.”

The 5-bedroom, 7.5-bath home is an airy masterpiece, with soaring ceilings above glittering white marble floors, and stunning water views from the grand balconies. Other amenities include a theater room, resort-style pool and a gourmet kitchen.

Hatteras Island, North Carolina

There are few places on the East Coast where you can watch the sun rise and set over endless miles of sea and sound. Hatteras Island is one of those places.

The 50-mile sliver of sand separating the glassy Pamlico Sound from the rolling swells of the Atlantic Ocean delicately frames the mainland, coming to a point where the Labrador Current and Gulf Stream meet. The Island’s natural landscape, spectacular weather and welcoming communities make it a haven for fun, adventure and relaxation. “When I discovered the Outer Banks, I fell in love with the beach all over again,” says Alex Risser, owner of Outer Beaches Realty.

Nearly every milepost along Highway 12 offers something for every traveler. North of Rodanthe, the Pea Island Refuge offers sanctuary to migrating birds and nature lovers. The northernmost villages, Rodanthe, Waves and Salvo, are charged with adventurous energy with some of the best surfing and kiteboarding on the Island.

Wandering further south after a stretch of wild dunes, Avon serves as a hub of restaurants, shopping and events without losing its relaxing and family-friendly flavor. Further still, Buxton and Frisco welcome fishermen, history buffs and treasure hunters with Cape Point, the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse and countless shops full of unique beach finds and local wares.

And where Highway 12 ends at the Ocracoke Ferry Terminal, the colorful Hatteras Village stretches into the sea. From here you can take a fishing charter or simply lounge on a deck and watch the boats float in with the tide.

It’s no surprise that between 80 and 90% of the properties here are vacation rentals, ranging from cozy one-bedroom condos to grand eight-bedroom houses. With lodging and activities to suit every style and budget, Hatteras Island is a premier destination for visitors and homeowners alike.

Timeless Sophistication

by Cathleen McCann

Legendary fashion designer Giorgio Armani has been making his mark around the world by designing elegant buildings that garner high praise for their timeless sophistication, his hallmark. The Miami Beach area is the site of his latest project—The Residences by Armani/Casa located in the beautiful Sunny Isles Beach community.

“We are the first and only Armani branded building in the United States,” says Gil Dezer, president and owner of Dezer Development in New York and Miami, and partner in the project.

“They don’t just give their name to anyone.” The Related Group, well-known developers in South Florida, are also partners in the project. “Together, we make a great team,” Dezer notes. “We are trusted people who are known for delivering an excellent product.”

Internationally renowned architect César Pelli’s design for this fiftysix story oceanfront condominium project is a contemporary glass tower that beautifully compliments the Atlantic Ocean. Transparent terraces, glass window walls and intimate private outdoor spaces that open onto the beach are just a few of the architectural details.

The building has 308 luxury residences with an average size of 3,000-square-feet. There are three “flow thru” apartments per floor that have views of the Intracoastal Waterway on one side and views of the Atlantic Ocean on the other side. Prices range from $2-million to $9-million. “Buyers get a great value here compared to other parts of  Miami,” Dezer notes.

An extensive array of amenities give the feel of being in a luxury hotel and resort, yet with all the benefits of a private residence. The amenities include an Armani Privé lounge, an elegantly appointed cigar room, a temperature-controlled and humiditycontrolled wine room and a two-story indoor/outdoor spa. And of course, the beach.

“Pre-sales are going quickly,” says Dezer. “Sixty percent of the units are sold already and we haven’t even begun construction.”

Construction begins in December 2015 and is estimated to take thirty-six months to complete.

Dana & Jeff Bloom, Top Agents, RE/MAX Excalibur

by Lauryn Howell

Sometimes an interest in a particular trade or craft begins at a young age and develops into a lifelong passion or career. Second generation real estate agents Dana and Jeff Bloom are some of the lucky few, having developed a love for their profession from the start.

Arizona natives Dana and Jeff made their mark on the luxury home market in Scottsdale early on and have evolved into a dynamic real estate team with more than 30 years’ experience between them.

Members of 3 private clubs, the Bloom family truly lives the country club lifestyle, which allows them to offer a tremendous amount of insight into the buying and selling of specialty, luxury homes and golf course properties combined with their way of life and enjoyment. More specifically, they do a great deal of business in the Desert Highlands, Silverleaf, Desert Mountain and Pine Canyon communities, to name a few.

However, it’s not their insight alone that makes the Blooms one of the top real estate teams, but rather the flawless combination of each of their own unique strengths. Dana’s interior design and remodeling skills coupled with Jeff’s strong background in investment and tenacious negotiating expertise allows them to create a full-service turnkey approach, ensuring that each client receives only the highest standard of service from start to finish.

But for the Blooms, the relationship with their clients doesn’t end there. They handle everything, from repairs to remodeling and furnishing of their clients homes.“We continue our relationship with our client’s long term, ensuring that the owning experience is easy and convenient,” says Dana Bloom.

This dedication and unwavering commitment to service has earned Dana more than a decade of awards and accolades as one of Scottsdale’s top agents. But Dana will be the first to tell you that the accomplishment she is most proud of is the continuously growing number of referrals from clients and friends, saying that, “Our clients become part of our family, and this is one of the many reasons why we truly love what we do.”
