Discover Telluride
Nestled in the southwest corner of Colorado, amidst the glorified San Juan
range of the Rocky Mountains, the small town of Telluride distinguishes itself
as one of the most breathtaking landscapes in the world.
Although only inhabited by a little more than 2,400 people, the historic
town is sought-after for its rare natural beauty, healthy recreational lifestyle,
vibrant culture and annual festivals.
Voted by Cond Nast Traveler readers three years in row as the No. 1
destination for skiing, Telluride and its surrounding neighbors enjoy more
than just the wintry slopes. Every season offers endless opportunities to fulfill
the need for adventure.
I became addicted to the lifestyle, says George Harvey, our
designated Market Expert for the Telluride region. Most
people come here the first time for the skiing and cant
leave when they discover the summers. Harvey is the
owner and broker of acclaimed real estate firm, The Harvey
Team, and is assisted by his wife, Becky, with their boutique
practice specializing in customized services for affluent
buyers and sellers.
Telluride regional real estate sales for 2014 are up 70
percent, but a good supply of quality properties are still
available for the discriminating buyer! For more information
on the current market, look for our next report on

LETTER
by kathleen-carlin russell

In my house, we are constantly questioning what is normal. This usually happens when
we have been somewhere or done something that is not in our usual rotation as a family...
not the norm. It could be as simple as spending time with new friends. You quickly realize
every family has its own routine and habitsgood, bad and in between. You go with what
works, and what works for one group certainly wont work (exactly) for another. In fact, there
are new norms all the time in our house, as the kids grow up, we adjust to being parents of
young people rather than babies, and go with the flow and evolution that is daily life.
We have come to the conclusion (after much laughing at
ourselves and our habits), that normal probably doesnt really
exist. Most people would agree. This is true for just about every
facet and aspect of our world. There are many versions of normal,
and luxury real estate professionals, homebuyers and sellers know
this quite well after witnessing the ups, downs and in betweens
of the last decade or so. Now, we find ourselves in what many are
calling the new norm, or is it? Just what does that mean? We kick
off our 2015 editorial series by examining that notion with our
mid-decade Outlook for Luxury Real Estate (page 50). This first
report is aptly named Are We Chasing The New Normal? and
top experts give their insights on this to start our year-long look
at the who, what, where, why and how on luxury. Not only have
the perspectives on the high end changed, but we are a truly global community now and that is
reflected in both who is buying and where they are looking to buy.
Our Waterfront Properties and FIABCI sections seem to reflect the broadening
world view that exists in luxury now. Amid these pages, youll find listings from Curacao, the
Bahamas, Canada, Panama, Costa Rica, Florida, Manhattan, Missouri and more. One of my
favorite homes in this issue, the cover house, is a $19 million mansion in Newport, Rhode
Island. Its exterior and shell hearken back to the 1930s, while its updated interior and systems
and premier waterfront location add a uniqueness that should intrigue todays luxury buyer,
no matter where they hail from.

Seafair
By Camilla McLaughlin

ong before the classic Newport, Rhode Island, estate featured on


our cover comes into view, anticipation builds, beginning with a
meandering drive, through the enchanted landscape fashioned
by Frederick Law Olmsted, to one of the beautiful sections
of Ocean Avenue. A gorgeous wrought iron gate and stone columns of
a very private entry and long estate drive only heighten expectations.
And, when you arrive, the incredible crescent-shaped rubble stone and
limestone residence hugging a huge swath of rocky coastline doesnt
disappoint. Architect James Mackenzie Jr., made best use of this nine-acre
oceanfront setting with a large central structure flanked by two curved
wings that embrace a central elliptical courtyard with a loggia and terraces.
An infinity pool also overlooks the water.
Walk around to the crashing surf and panorama on the ocean side
and you discover a growing sense of well-being. This property has that
unusual mix of energy that both excites and relaxes, says Melanie Delman

with Lila Delman Real Estate. It might be a classic estate with a Louis
XVI style and a Deco motif, but it doesnt feel like an antiquated mansion.
Upon entering, you realize its a home in every aspect. Exceptional
features such as the Louis XVI details, Directoire wrought iron railing
along the grand staircase and marble fireplaces have been thoughtfully
preserved, but the scale feels very current. It doesnt overwhelm and
makes the home even more elegant. It is so classic and modern at the
same time. The next owner will be able to make this home whatever they
want it to be, says Delman.
Built in the mid 1930s, this property is the last of the great estates of
the Gilded Age; it is also the most advanced. Up-to-date systems include
two elevators, backup generators and extensive underground parking.
The setting nine waterfront acres on a private peninsula is
unmatched even in Newport. Development potential also exists. Lila
Delman Real Estate is offering this estate at $19 million.

Finding a Unique Home is only the beginning of creating The Unique Lifestyle.
In this issue, we go inside an elite Manhattan membership club,
and we look at the latest trends in amazing kitchens and baths.

The Essence
In
of Luxury
By Christine Aebischer

28

UniqueHomes.com

an inconspicuous high-rise in Midtown Manhattan between


Park and Madison avenues, the worlds elite are drawn,
whether to enjoy a world-class meal with friends, work out with
an Olympic trainer, conduct a business meeting, view an exclusive
movie screening or attend a panel with some of the brightest minds
in the world.
It may seem inconceivable that all of this, and more, could be
taking place simultaneously in one place, but that was the goal of
founder and CEO Jennie Enterprise when she launched CORE: club
in 2005. I wanted to create a collection of spaces where interesting
people who are changing the world and innovating across multiple
platforms could get together regularly and essentially have a home
away from home, an office away from the office, Enterprise says.
Enterprise first began developing the idea for CORE: in 2000

for each member. Our goal is that every layer of our


experiential installation is exceptional.
After recruiting 150 inaugural members to invest
$100,000 each, membership continues to expand as
those 150 nominated additional individuals who possessed similar attributes and, as Enterprise describes,
are transforming the landscape in their industry.
Today, CORE: averages about 1,600 members, according to Enterprise, who pay a $50,000 initiation fee,
plus $15,000 a year. Enterprise describes the typical
CORE: member as somebody who is accomplished
and curious and is experiencing life in a vibrant and
robust way, typically leading a chaotic
life over programmed, overscheduled, traveling and working all over the
world, and for whom simplicity is a
form of luxury.
In its early stages, CORE: was
focused on creating and curating a
community of global innovators, each
of whom truly added something to the
environment and the conversation. Now
that the club is in a more mature phase,
as Enterprise says, with an established
community, the challenge is to continue
providing fresh, unique and authentically transformational experiences. To
keep someones attention is quite the
challenge, Enterprise says. But were inspired by it.
Everything about CORE:, starting with the architecture and design, including a rotating collection of
art, is meant to activate the senses and inspire the
mind, as well as take members on a perpetual journey of discovery, Enterprise says. CORE: even has its
own scent, which is infused in the air, and while not
overtly discernable, is meant to activate the imagination,
explains Enterprise.
Each room, from the library, dining areas, gallery
spaces, screening room, private meeting rooms, gym,
skin care platform (dangene, The Institute of Skinovation), salon and spa, serves as an individual space
that caters to each members personalized needs, yet
as Enterprise explains, the spaces are designed as an

integrated and cohesive whole, where the spheres of


ones private life and ones business life can be seamlessly blended. Members are just as likely to hold a
board meeting with their most important investors, as
their 10-year anniversary party or their kids Sweet 16,
Enterprise says. We have earned their trust to be able
to curate their events, whether its a simple dinner or
an important meeting.
CORE: clubs team of curators also produces over
250 cultural programs each year on a range of topics,
including the media, arts, cuisine, travel, commerce
and thought. These programs are meant to explore
what is culturally relevant at the
time and inspire conversation among
members. With one to three programs
each day, members have constant
access to new experiences that they
would not be exposed to anywhere
else, Enterprise says.
And amenities dont stop when
members leave the building. CORE:
also provides cultural events off-site
by finding unique experiences in
places around the world frequented by
its members. These off-site programs
are expanded each year, and recently
included a summer concert series in the
Hamptons. Enterprise is also looking to
expand CORE: throughout the world, creating additional
clubs in cities where its members spend a lot of their
time, such as London, Miami, San Francisco, Milan
and Paris.
Additionally, Enterprise is working to expand
CORE: to the luxury residential development industry,
as the ultimate amenity in upscale properties across the
country. For me, CORE: is a new way of thinking about
residential living, Enterprise says. Not only would a
CORE: club be immersed in and seamlessly integrated
into the development, but residents also would have
access to even more personalized CORE: experiences
in their home. We could curate cultural programs 365
days a year, almost as if your home can be an experiential installation for you and your family.

Showcase Spaces
By Roger Grody

Glickman Design Build gutted an existing


suburban kitchen and dining room to create a
unified entertainment space, one side for cooking,
the other side dedicated to gathering around
a bar. Dark cabinetry is contrasted with light
granite, and open shelving reinforces the airy,
contemporary concept.

To update a condo at The Watergate, Washington,


D.C.s luxury residential complex, Case Design/
Remodeling packed contemporary luxury into a
mere 100 square feet. The enlarged shower is clad
in unique, vertically grained marble tiles, and twin
vanities reflect clean lines and contrasting dark wood.

nterior designers and plumbers share an obsession


with kitchens and baths. Homeowners are demanding spaces, whether an entertainment hub of the
house or a private sanctuary, in which to be nurtured
and pampered and worthy of showing off. Kitchens,
and, to a lesser degree, bathrooms, are the rooms
where innovative design is put to the test.

UniqueHomes.com

courtesy case design/remodeling, inc.

Designers invest a
disproportionate amount of
imagination into two rooms:
the very public kitchen and
the more private master bath.

Public StatementS
Kitchens are getting bigger, flashier and definitely
more wide-open, according to Bill Millholland, executive
vice president of Bethesda, Marylands Case Design/
Remodeling, who reports nearly all current kitchen
projects entail tearing down walls to integrate the space
with adjoining family rooms, dining rooms or patios.
Homeowners no longer insist on matching the style of
the kitchen to the homes architecture, says Millholland,
who notes, That trend has changed radically over the
last three to four years, as kitchens have taken on a
much more contemporary vibe.
Kevin J. Cozen, principal and founder of Classical
Progression, a Santa Monica, California, design firm,
reports two major trends in luxury kitchens. One Ill
call the ber-industrial kitchen and the other the slick,
modern-style kitchen, he says. The first, driven by
clients seeking a restaurant-style kitchen, can lack
warmth. Here the challenge is integrating these
cold, industrial-feeling appliances into a place where

family and friends gather, says Cozen, who uses


reclaimed, aged woods and vintage fixtures to soften
the environment. In the slick modern-style kitchen,
appliances and fixtures almost vanish, integrating the
appliances into or within the cabinetry, which is a
continuous, clean-lined surface with limited details,
explains the designer.
Kitchens have become these jewels of projects, says Millholland, explaining the limited design
options of stained wood cabinets and laminate countertops are long gone. Theyve now exploded into
precious projects where we worry about every detail,
emphasizing a dramatic evolution in terms of sophistication. Concurring is Lanna Ali-Hassan, an interior
designer with Glickman Design Build, another firm
in Washington, D.C.s Maryland suburbs, who states,
Clients now want more than a space that functions
well they want something that wows.
For countertops, granites popularity is surprisingly enduring, even though it requires more
maintenance than engineered quartz products like
Caesarstone, which now offers finishes difficult to distinguish from genuine granite, marble or onyx. They
dont carry any of the heartache of natural stone, says
Millholland. Ali-Hassan reports clients strong preference for islands, with enormous adaptations doubling
as dining tables for everyday meals.
Reinforcing Kevin Cozens observations on

modern kitchens, the East Coast designers cite a trend


of discretely hiding smaller appliances, such as microwave ovens and wine coolers, into drawers. Greater
color contrast has gained favor: white cabinets paired
with dark granite, or conversely, chocolate-stained
cabinets juxtaposed with white marble. Everybody
used to be somewhere in the middle, now theyve
moved to the extremes, notes Millholland of current color preferences. Some ultra-modern kitchens,
such as those from Italian manufacturer Snaidero,
feature lacquered cabinets with the high-gloss colors
and sexy curves of a Ferrari, a look more popular in
luxury urban lofts.
With kitchens now measured in terms of their
wow factor, the quality of all materials undergoes
far more scrutiny than in the past. People are much
more aware and educated, and have a heightened
sense of aesthetics, explains Millholland.

Splurging in private
When it comes to master bathrooms, its all
about splurging, albeit in a less public manner than
kitchens. Showers have become more dominant than
bathtubs, reports Millholland, noting frameless glass,
rich stone sheathing and multiple showerheads are
practically taken for granted. If space is at a premium, sacrificing the tub for a lavish shower is relatively common practice, but the tubs that remain are
elevated to bona fide design elements.
Tubs are likely to be freestanding, almost
like a piece of sculpture, says Millholland, who
reports they are often positioned for dramatic effect.
Ali-Hassan agrees, adding that drama can be further enhanced by hanging a crystal chandelier over
the tub. Clients demand bathrooms with a spa-like
atmosphere, a place to go and relax and unwind,
she says. Both designers report homeowners enduring love affair with Carrara marble, a material with
a timeless sense of luxury. Other amenities that are
becoming de rigueur are heated floors and towel
racks, mirrors with built-in televisions, steam rooms
or saunas perhaps a fireplace. A current luxury
bath may also have outdoor access to a spa-like private patio, complete with outdoor shower, spa, lounging and even massage areas, says Cozen, spoken
like a true Southern Californian.
In condos with limited square footage,
Millholland suggests homeowners will trade any extra
space, including an existing tub, for larger closets.
For more generously proportioned homes, Ali-Hassan
maintains his and hers walk-in closets with dressing
rooms are becoming as essential as dual vanities,
which arent even negotiable. Cozen reports that
entirely separate bathrooms, once popular in sprawling estates, are now pass, quipping, It seems to
us that couples who stay together want to bathe
together! Instead, privacy is achieved in a single
spa-like suite by allocating each person their own
toilet, walk-in closet and dressing room.

In a historic district in Washington,


D.C., Case Design/Remodeling
responded to the homeowners eclectic
tastes with a modern yet whimsical
kitchen consistent with the spirit of the
neighborhood. Inset crystal cabinets, a
marble backsplash and vintage-inspired
lighting fixtures contrast with ultramodern stainless steel countertops
evocative of a restaurant kitchen.

Led by Jackie Doak, chief operating officer of Dart Realty, Provenance
Properties will market and sell properties developed by Dart Realty,
which is renowned for its commitment to sustainable development in
the Caymans.
One of the first offerings will be condominiums at the Kimpton resort

properties valued at $1 million USD or more.

As reported by the LA Times and RISMedia, a policy change to the current


immigration system will allow for U.S. and Chinese citizens to visit each
others countries repeatedly over a decade. Current Chinese citizens holding a one-year pass to enter and leave the U.S. now can get multi-visit visas,
as long as their passports are valid. Students now can get a visa for up to 5
years. This change could draw 7.5 million Chinese visitors by 2021, bringing
in an estimated $85 billion to the economy.
Last year, $21.1 billion was injected into the U.S. economy by 1.8 million
Chinese visitors, and the number of visitors is expected to increase by 21

may be still chasing the elusive new


normal, but our perspective has
changed radically since the beginning of the decade.
We havent had a normal real estate market in
close to 15 years. This year in particular will be a transitional year, observes Budge Huskey, president and
CEO of Coldwell Banker Real Estate. Luxury will still
outperform the overall market. I think everyone continues to be bullish on luxury real estate, but I dont
think anyone should expect to see the same percentage
increases in luxury activity that we have witnessed over
the last couple of years.
Look back over the last five years and its pretty
clear forecasts of a long, slow recovery bumping along
the bottom were accurate. Even though the recession
had officially been declared over, signs of the longawaited recovery in 2010 were few and far between.
Many locations were just hitting bottom. The number
of foreclosures seemed incalculable. Some observers
even ventured that it might take decades for the hardest hit places, Florida and Miami in particular, to recoup. In the past, housing had led the economy out of
recession, but it was clear that real estate was only one
component in what would be a complex recovery tied

By Camilla McLaughlin

as much to jobs and economic growth as to housing.


For much of the decade it has been a tale of two
markets. First, luxury lagged behind real estate overall
in the wake of the boost from the stimulus, and then
the markets flipped with upscale activity outpacing real
estate overall. The luxury residential segment has been
driving the real estate recovery for several years, thanks
to increasing numbers of wealthy at all wealth levels
from high-net-worth individuals to billionaires, says
Laurie Moore-Moore, founder and CEO of the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing. In addition, attitudes
about residential real estate as a portfolio play, as well
as a lifestyle purchase, have helped to bolster luxury
home demand. Today, the number of wealthy individuals in the world is at an all-time high, and real estate
represents a substantial portion of their investments.
The wealthy have come out of the recession
stronger than ever, with more assets, says Paul
Boomsma, president of Luxury Portfolio International
and COO of LeadingRE.
Its been very much a two-stage recovery with
disparate outcomes depending on your position. Those
with real estate and equities have seen on average a
40-percent gain in value in those assets over the last
30 months, says Huskey.

Luxury consumers
have largely rebounded
from the recession, but,
as Bernard Arnault
has said, Nothing will
be the same again. We
have a new normal.

At press time, the highest-priced listing in the


U.S. is a $195 million estate in Beverly Hills. Luxury
continues to outpace the market with deals on homes
priced above $1 million rising 16 percent in October.
Also falling into place in 2014 is the last component of
the luxury recovery, the resort market. In the first 10
months of 2014, transactions for upscale properties in
Telluride rose 31 percent, which broker George Harvey believes is the biggest 10-month surge in decades.
Today, like luxury overall, the biggest problem in many
resort locales is lack of inventory.
Echoing a number of the experts, Earl Lee CEO
for HSF Affiliates LLC, which operates the real estate
brokerage networks of Prudential Real Estate, Real Living Real Estate and Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices
says that in 2010 he never would have foreseen such
a strong recovery for luxury. But in retrospect, he says,
the strength of the stock market certainly provided
those individuals with cash, but there are few investment options. Other than the stock market, the other
alternative is hard assets, and real estate tends to be
one of those assets.
The ultra-high-net-worth [those with at least $30
million in investable assets] globally have invested one
in five of their investment dollars in real estate. Bricks
and mortar have become an asset class competitive
with stocks and bonds, says Moore-Moore.
I think we expected the recovery for luxury to
be this strong. We knew there was pent-up demand
and even more than pent-up demand, there was an
incredible amount of cash. The amount of cash is the
highest level ever, says Boomsma.
But when we rang in the new decade in 2010,
luxury consumers still had buying on pause. In the
depths of the recession it appeared insensitive to go
out and spend money, says Huskey. On the other hand,
interest rates at a level comparable to 1952 (thanks to
the Federal Reserves aggressive quantitative easing)
and prices at historic lows presented investors with
a compelling opportunity. The smart money knows
its time to buy, Alex Perriello, CEO of the Realogy
Franchise Group, said at the National Association of
Realtors (NAR) conference in 2010.
By 2012 gaining momentum replaced bumping along the bottom and newly confident consumers
began to view real estate favorably. I was very worried
that luxury was going to be out of favor, but it didnt
last long, because real estate has stood the test of time
in terms of price appreciation and price preservation. I
think thats why people got back into it, observes Philip
White, CEO of Sothebys International Realty.
Most importantly, 2012 marked the first wide-

spread increase in home prices


since 2006. By years end, inventories of $1 million-plus homes in
cities such as Atlanta were down
to less than a months supply. The
ultra high end began to move as
well, with record-breaking sales. By
2013, with 28 months of improvement in sales nationally and more than 11 consecutive,
month-over-month, double-digit price increases (an
18-percent gain in two years), it was clear the recovery
was full on.
As the economic recovery started to take shape,
we saw a point in time when the affluent thought it
was appropriate to spend again. We not only saw it in
real estate, but across all luxury products, consumer
goods, anything tied to luxury. And this wasnt necessarily fueled by additional wealth, but by wealth parked
on the sidelines until such time they felt it was appropriate to buy again, recalls Huskey.
As consumer confidence has increased, so have
the number of transactions and the prices they want to
pay, says Seattle Realtor John Brian Losh, who is also
the publisher of LuxuryRealEstate.com.
Today, on the cusp of the mid-decade benchmark,
some degree of uncertainty once again dogs housing.
Sales in 2014 softened a bit. Inventories began to build,
which overall is a positive because bare bones inventories in many markets left buyers with few choices.
Lending constraints put a damper on activity for both
builders and consumers. We are in the early stages of
a long-term recovery, says Sherry Chris, president and
CEO of Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate. And
if you look at anything long term, there will be little
bumps along the way.
Strict lending has been the biggest challenge,

and many areas have not yet returned to pre-crisis valuations, despite prices rising for three straight years on a
national level. After a rapid increase in sales and prices
in 2013, the market began settling into a more sustainable growth pattern in 2014. NAR is predicting that
2014 home sales will be close to what we saw in 2013,
and then jump 7.7 percent in 2015. They are hoping for
general economic improvement, a return of first-time
buyers, and pent-up demand from overall population
growth combining to fuel a robust housing market,
explains Shaun White, director of marketing for RE/MAX.
Were cautiously optimistic about 2015. While
local conditions vary, overall trends are promising:
Were seeing more inventory, price increases are
stabilizing and mortgage rates remain historically
attractive, explains Pamela Temple, director of Keller
Williams luxury homes division.
Projections from Anand Nallathambi, CEO of
CoreLogic, put home prices in over half the country
by mid-2015 at or above levels last seen at the height
of the housing bubble.
Although lending is expected to ease up a bit in
2015, and inventories improve as homebuilders amp up
production, the economy and jobs remain the essential
catalysts. The U.S. economy is finally off and running
with the number of jobs continuing to grow and wages
starting to rise, which will also bolster the prospects for
a housing recovery, says Mark Zandi, chief economist

Things may be getting back to normal, but


there is no guarantee it will stay that way.

Inventory is down
and everything else is
up, and it can change
in an instant.
John Brian Losh of LuxuryRealEstate.com

at Moodys Analytics.
Jonathan Smoke, Realtor.com chief economist,
expects both GDP and jobs in 2015 to outperform 2014,
which saw the best GDP since 2005, and the best job
creation since 1999. He pins his outlook on younger
buyers who, he says, empowered by improvement
in employment, will return to the market and fuel
the continued housing recovery. If access to credit
improves, we could see substantially larger numbers
of younger buyers. Smoke calls for an 8-plus percent
increase in sales and a 4.5-percent to 5-percent gain
in prices in 2015. Estimates from other housing
economists for price gains range from Zillows 2.4
percent to 4 percent from NARs Chief Economist
Lawrence Yun to 4.9 percent from Fannie Mae.
Already Millennials are becoming influential
even in luxury, in some locations which, as the
decade winds down, will influence the kinds of homes
produced, popular locations and energy efficiency.
The thing about real estate especially luxury real
estate the buyers are getting younger, and they are
getting older, says Losh, referring to the two dominant
demographics.
For luxury, Huskey says, We should continue to
see activity, albeit strong activity, but in a more normalized path as price increases begin to trim, and supply
and demand stabilize. This is moving us back to a more
sustainable market.
One of the biggest changes in this decade has
been a surge in foreign buying. In spite of slowing
demand at years end, most experts say it will be an
ongoing trend for luxury. Many anticipate the number
of buyers from outside the U.S. to remain steady or increase as we go through the decade. I have seen firsthand the ebb and flow of foreign investment in luxury

properties, usually fueled by economic and political


realities in countries like China, Russia, Ukraine and
Venezuela, says Bob Hurwitz, president and founder of
the Hurwitz-James Company in Beverly Hills. For the
foreseeable future, I expect an ever-growing demand
from foreign investors. At this moment, I have six properties under contract and set to close, ranging from $2
million to $30 million with Russian and Chinese buyers
alone, and that is only the tip of the iceberg. Wealthy
foreign citizens will find the U.S. both a safe haven for
investment, and with trophy properties in abundance.
Moore-Moore expects the recent drop in oil prices
to have a varying impact. Oil exporting countries, like
Russia and Venezuela, will suffer negative economic
consequences, but in the short term we might see a
flight to international real estate as a financial hedge
on the part of wealthy residents.
Boomsma believes one of the biggest changes
since the rebound is a new global attitude among the
wealthy. Global has become a reality that people now
accept. Before it was something they heard about and
there was a certain cach attached to being global. Now
people are comfortable traveling and living in a very
global society. Now a lot of people are saying, I am not
just hearing about it, I am experiencing it. Its a reality.
In a recent Wealth Insights, Barclays heralded
the emergence of what it dubs the global citizen, and
Boomsma also sees a growing commonality among the
affluent worldwide. I think the affluent of the world
are becoming more aligned. Those who have the means
to travel live in a very global sphere. Even though they
come from different cultures and countries, they have
some of the same values when it comes to products,
services and experience.
In the depths of the downturn, the new normal

became a catch phrase. Today the phrase isnt heard


very often, and although the recovery is here, we are
still sorting out what normal means.
Because of the dramatic market shifts weve experienced over the past five years, consumers remain
cautious. Theyre saving more, delaying instant gratification, and making sure theyre well informed before
making major purchase decisions, says Temple.
Boomsma explains that for the wealthy today,
work-life balance is most important. In addition to
work, they are passionate about having quality time,
meaningful relationships and quality experiences.
So, he says, if they are doing things in the
U.S. or in Asia, they are going to have a home
there. Certain global destinations have
become incredibly international because
its part of being time-compressed.
Things may be getting back to
normal, but there is no guarantee
it will stay that way. Inventory
is down and everything else is up,
and it can change in an instant, shares
Losh.

Aspen A standout in the national luxury


landscape, Aspen ranks among the top 10 locations
for $5 million-and-up sales. All over the Rocky
Mountain West, resort sales took off this year.
With Boomers eyeing retirement and growing
international interest, 2014 wont be a one-trick pony
for these resorts.
Boston More than premier universities and
medical centers bring international buyers who opt
for iconic brownstones or full-service luxury buildings.
A thriving tech sector prompts comparisons to
San Francisco. The best properties are immediately
snapped up, but new luxury buildings on the rise all
over the city mean this beautiful old citys star will
shine even brighter in 2015.
Chicago The Windy City, which boasts the tallest
residential tower in the Western Hemisphere, was
late to the recovery, but buyers are rediscovering
luxury here. Ultra-high-end properties are in high
demand and prices hovering at $1,700 per square
foot are a desirable alternative to Manhattan.
Remarkable is the way one source describes action
at the highest price points.
Hamptons A record-setting $147 million sale is
only one indication of how much luxury here took
off in 2014, with a $1 million jump in the threshold
for luxury and a 40-plus-percent increase in the
median price. Biggest market movers? Anything on
the water.

Honolulu New towers and urban communities


push luxury to new heights, but theyre only
one reason why this city is at the top this year.
The median price passed the $700,000 mark
in November. Oahu is still a prime location.
Worldwide interest is strong.
Malibu Few places personify West Coast luxury
more than Malibu. Inventories are slim; beach
properties and large estates are prized; prices are on
the rise; and finding the right property might take
time, but owners say Malibu is definitely worth it.
Strongest this year? Sales at $20 million and up.
Miami Miami set a post-recession record with 33
consecutive months of year-over-year increases in
sales and price. Cash deals almost double that of the
U.S. overall tell us global buyers love affair isnt over
yet. New construction is hot with almost 100 new
buildings on the books.
nashville More than music puts Nashville on the
charts as a growing preference for Millennials, and
also for pre-retirement Boomers. November saw
the highest level of closings since 2006. Good job
prospects, a city center being reinvented, culture and
a top rating from ULI have developers looking here.
Expect to see more from Nashville, which just started
showing up on rankings.
new York Even brokers are surprised by the
market here, which shows no signs of a slowdown.

San Francisco Bubble rumors wont get off the


ground here. The Bay Areas market is solid and it still
sizzles. The number of homes on the market remains
slim, taking an average of 30 days to sell. Prices over
asking are almost routine in Silicon Valley. Even if
the pace slackens, limited inventory and Millennials
with tech dollars will keep homes selling over asking
price in Silicon Valley.
Savannah A gem along the magnificent South
Carolina/Georgia coast, Savannah offers an eclectic
mix of properties with a little something for every

istockphoto.com

Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia Insiders know


this town set on Virginias largest lake (500 miles of
shoreline) lives up to its reputation as the jewel of
the Blue Ridge Mountains. The recovery arrived here
this year with new demand for luxury properties, but
opportunities for buyers are plentiful.
The Woodlands Not just another suburb, this
top-rated community has an almost perfect mix
of retail, office, recreation, education, the arts,
residences and 6,000-plus acres of green space.
New neighborhoods are set to open this year,
and the nearby Exxon Mobil campus is bringing
newcomers from around the world, so its no
surprise luxury is booming.
Toronto Hints of a potential bubble here began
to float in the media beginning this summer,
but agents say interest from both domestic and
international buyers hasnt waned. Mainstream
luxury rather than ultra high end is most in
demand, with new products on tap in 2015. Thats
reason enough to keep an eye on Canadas hottest
market.

interest from waterfront to historic properties.


Values are up with only a slight rise predicted for next
year, which makes this unique location a plum for
interested buyers.

new york

Raleigh, North Carolina More than lifestyle


brings newcomers to the three cities Raleigh,
Durham, Chapel Hill in the Research Triangle.
Education, medical, research and tech make for
exceptional fundamentals. Prices and sales are up,
with inventories in the high end edging up slightly,
which is good news in a market with more buyers
than sellers. Expect this perennial top performer to
continue to top the best of ratings.

malibu

honolulu
In November, signed contracts for properties priced
$4 million and up set a new record, and interest from
foreign buyers returned after a slight pause. Buyers
priced out of Manhattan look next to Harlem and
Riverdale. Potential tax changes may impact prices,
but not demand.

Las Rosadas

Baha de ChameLa, mexiCo

The stunning views of Chamela Bay form the perfect


backdrop for Las Rosadas.

As I looked bAck To The MexIcAn coAsTlIne from my vantage point on


the blue waters of the Pacific, I could barely point out Paloma Blanca by the top of
its roof among the lush, verdant hills where the home is nestled. This unobtrusive
and harmonious design is the essence of Las Rosadas, the 420-acre, privately
owned, emerging residential community on the coast of
Chamela Bay in Jalisco. We wanted to blend into the
natural environment, says owner Tom Miller.
The property, which neighbors the 30,000-acre
Chamela-Cuixmala Biosphere Reserve and is framed by
the Chamela Bay Island Sanctuary, was once intended
to be developed into 1,600 homes, one of the largest
developments in Mexico, according to Miller. However,
the Miller family plans on keeping over two-thirds of the
property as undisturbed, open space and are working
to reduce the infrastructure that was previously in place,
planting trees to replace the pavement.
Las Rosadas offers an unspoiled paradise, devoid of the crowds found in
typical tourist destinations, where breathtaking views of Chamela Bay and its multiple
islands can be enjoyed from any of the 32 homesites. The propertys first product

offerings include an existing home, the 12,271-square-foot Paloma Blanca listed for
$10.75 million, as well as two bluff-top lots, ranging from two to three acres and listed
for $4.75 million and $7.95 million, respectively. All forthcoming homes must abide
by rigorous environmental standards, so as not to disturb the areas diverse wildlife.
In addition to hundreds of species of flora and
fauna, Las Rosadas also has a sea turtle sanctuary
and a protected space for the threatened iguanas of
Western Mexico. Hiking and biking trails throughout the
property will allow residents to enjoy the diverse wildlife. Its important to maintain the integrity of the natural surroundings and work within that framework, says
Matthew Miller, Tom Millers son.
Las Rosadas features 1.25 acres of pristine
beachfront coastline, marked by three swimmable
beaches: Playa Rosadas, Playa Corazon and Playa
Turquesa. Residents will enjoy an ideal landscape for
swimming, surfing, paddle boarding, kayaking, snorkeling and scuba diving, and
also will have access to a broad range of exceptional amenities, experiences and
concierge-style services.

Las Rosadas received its name from the rose-colored sunsets and
shells that adorn the beach. LasRosadas.com

The property is located between the cities of Puerto Vallarta and Manzanillo,
approximately a 2.5-hour and 1.5-hour drive, respectively, from their airports.

GOING GlObal berlINs PrOject attracts atteNtION


Even before the start of construction, international buyers from China, the
United Arab Emirates, Singapore, Lebanon, Mexico, Cyprus and Switzerland began purchasing apartments in the exclusive Palais Varnhagen
development in the heart of Berlin. Developers Artprojekt and Baywobau
are jointly constructing the residences, scheduled to be completed in the
summer of 2016, from the plans of renowned architect David Chipperfield.
The development, set in the historic Mitte district, will set new
international standards in architectural design. The new international
standards are the symbiosis of strict architecture and sensual surfaces,
a consistent and coherent concept of colors and materials composed
especially for this purpose, says Thomas Hlzel of Artprojekt. Forty-nine
salon apartments are planned, ranging in size from 57 to 278 square
meters, with the ability to combine adjoining units. There are also three
two-story penthouses, which feature between 290 and 440 square meters
and terraces with panoramic views of Berlin.
Palais Varnhagen also will include a courtyard garden, central lobby
with concierge services and a contemporary art collection as an integrated
component of the architectural design, something that is common to all
of Artprojekts developments. Berlin artist Christian Holschens installation
will be featured throughout the building.

HigHest-Priced listing in U.s.

At $195 million, Palazzo di Amore is on a rare 25-acre promontory lot in the heart

by Joyce Rey and Stacy Gottula of Coldwell Banker Previews International, it is now the
most expensive listing in the U.S.
Purchased by current owner Jeff Greene while it was unfinished, Greene was
attracted to the size and scope of the project, but also the original architecture by
Bob Ray Offenhauser and design by Alberto Pinto. Developer Mohamed Hadid was
brought on to finish the home, which was completed this year.
The 25 acres include the main residence, Palazzo di Amore, which is over 35,000
square feet; a 15,000-square-foot entertainment complex that houses a disco/ballroom

who is interested in entertaining large numbers of people. The property accommodates


150 cars and can seat several hundred people. With the entertainment complex, you

To settle on the $195 million list price, we looked around the nation at properties
that have sold over $100 million and this stood out above what the other properties had
to offer. We also looked at what sold in our immediate market and it compares very
favorably, shares Rey.

The vineyard produces 400-500 cases of wine a year,


made from classic varietals including Sangiovese, Syrah,
Cabernet, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc.

Designer Lisa Adams, who launched LA Closet


Design in 2007, recently completed the redesign of
an 840-square-foot mahogany closet in a 6-bedroom,
7.5-bath La Jolla home. The closet connects her
master to his master. Adams shares, I love that its
a three-room closet. Its still one big space to share
together, but at the same time they have a separation
of space. Within each room, I really like that its
unique to the husband and unique to the wife.
Some distinctive features include custom
drawer inserts lined in blue suede, a pull-out ironing
board drawer, a steamer cabinet and a custom
Brown safe integrated into the cabinetry. A tall
peninsula tie display showcasing rolled ties and
hanging ties on pull-out tie racks make a huge
statement in this space. The shoe walls have back
lighting. Three-way mirror cabinets, a vanity and pullout pants racks complete the design.
The closet also features products from Adams
newest line, LAMOVE Mobile Closet. Adams explains,
We decided to make a really functional space for
packing. Really, the notion behind that is that theres
a space for everything. Even when youre packing it
doesnt leave you to rely on memory and leave you
wondering what else is left to pack. Theres a spot for
everything, and everything is in its place.

Three Florida luxury


markets Naples, Delray
Beach and Palm Beach
anticipate inventory
to move, and a recordbreaking year ahead.

Supply &
Demand
By Lauren Varga King

Naples
Theres been a shift in Naples. The once more seasonable town along the Gulf of Mexico has just come
off one of its busiest months ever, and Tade Bua-Bell
of the Bua-Bell Group, John R. Wood Realtors, expects
that trend to continue through 2015.
Winters have been brutal and were seeing a lot
of pre-empty nesters, and people previously on the
sidelines, come in, says Bua-Bell. The buyers we have
are real and thats making for a healthy, stable market.
I predict well see even more sales in 2015.
Bua-Bell and Rick Fioretti, of Berkshire Hathaway
HomeServices Florida Realty, also acknowledge that inventory is low and as quickly as homes come to market,
theyre selling especially in the $2 million ballpark.
Its all about supply and demand, says Fioretti.
New construction is helping to bolster the market.
According to Fioretti, 30 new communities are in
the works further east, 10 to 20 minutes drive from the
beach. Hes keeping his eye on those communities as
well as Old Naples, which has returned to 2005 pricing.
Delray Beach
Greater Delray Beach comprises only 16 square
miles, but tucked into this small town along the
Atlantic Ocean, theres a diverse selection of homes in
all price ranges, from oceanfront homes and condos, to
Intracoastal properties and country club communities,
say Mark Nestler and John Poletto of Nestler Poletto
Sothebys International Realty.
You are limited by only your imagination and
your purse, say Nestler and Poletto.
Pascal Liguori of Premier Estate Properties adds
that buyers want new construction, but only so much
available space for build-out remains.
The available lots are decreasing, says Liguori.
The opportunity to build will be rare going forward.
To secure a lot for future building, one should
expect to pay anywhere from $1 million to above
$3 million depending on lot size, and its location.
To give you an idea of how quickly our market is
moving, days on market are down by 32 percent from
2013 to 2014, and we anticipate this trend to continue
through 2015, says Liguori.

Delray Beach

Palm Beach
The 16-mile-long barrier island offers waterfront
properties with variable water depths for boaters, intown condos and single-family homes, as well as large
estate homes with acreage and room to spread out.
Though, as Dana Koch of The Koch Team, Corcoran
Group Real Estate, points out, inventory levels have
dwindled.
The reality is, there is a lack of inventory and
thats one reason prices have pushed higher, says Koch.
The North End of Palm Beach, which offers deep water

for avid fishermen or yachtsmen, is really on fire.


Koch anticipates another record-breaking year.
In 2014, the Koch Team set the record for the most
expensive non-waterfront sale in Palm Beach history.
The listing sold for just under $30 million. At press
time, The Koch Team also has the most expensive
listing in Palm Beach the Kluge Estate, listed for
$59 million.
Palm Beach real estate is a sport, says Koch.
People love to trade up and its a constant topic of
conversation.

By Ken Weingartner

Living (and Selling) the Resort Lifestyle


Utahs top agent is busy as he expands his influence in the West, yet stays true to his skiing roots.

aul Benson enjoys a life that includes some ups and


downs.
An avid skier since the age of nine, Benson is an
award-winning Realtor based in Park City, Utah. The
Wall Street Journal has ranked Benson the No. 1 agent
in Utah in sales volume for four consecutive years
and recently ranked him No. 45 among all agents in
the nation.
A native of Vermont, where he competed in the
slalom during his high school years, Benson still hits
the slopes as often as his schedule allows, sometimes
mixing business with pleasure.
The chairlift is a phenomenal place to meet
clients, says Benson with a laugh. I try to get in a
good 50 days a year, but its also our busy season. Im
fortunate that here you can ski six or seven runs and
be back to your office by 10 a.m. and not miss a beat.
Benson began his real estate career only a
decade ago, but already was familiar with promoting a luxury lifestyle.
After graduating high school, Benson headed to

New York with the idea of working as a stockbroker.


Within several years, however, he was running the
finance department for a large automobile dealership
chain in Manhattan, which eventually led to becoming a sales and marketing director for Mercedes-Benz.
His professional life brought him to California,
where a growing interest in real estate developed into a
career change when he moved with his family to Utah.
I was one of those people who would never
miss an open house when I saw one, says Benson.
I was always tracking trends, following the market.
With my ski and mountain background, and Park City
having such a growing economy and luxury market,
it seemed like a great fit to try luxury real estate.
The whole package is quite enjoyable. I think
any resort location fits me because I love that lifestyle.
Understanding the demographics and the buying
habits of the second-home buyer, and understanding the wants and needs and the service level that
comes with that, I think thats a natural fit for me.
Benson credits his marketing background as the

key for his successful transition to real estate.


I think I came from my previous career understanding how to tap into the marketing world with a
consistent message that will stand out no matter your
competition, says Benson. And the belief that marketing works even if you dont see results immediately.
Benson, who in October was named to the
Womens Ski Jumping USA Board of Directors, is
beginning a new chapter in his real estate career.
In November, he became a franchise partner in
Hamburg-based luxury real estate group Engel &
Vlkers, and will market exclusive territories in
San Francisco, Marin County, Sonoma County, Napa
Valley, Lake Tahoe and Utah.
Being in this particular area of the country and
being able to tie these dream markets together, its
pretty special, says Benson. Its aggressive, but its
going to be a fun chapter in my life, to not only be a
broker and do what I do, but to be able to connect
multiple brokerages with some marketing ideas and
collaborate. Im very excited for it.
