I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy New Year. 2020 has certainly proven to be an “interesting” year – one that has caused distractions and changes to our lives that we would not have expected. Through all of this, the real estate industry has been booming in some key markets, people have been spending more time at home, and lifestyles have become more casual.
With this shift, when looking to make a real estate purchase, the list of home amenities has become more important than ever. That’s why our three FEATURED PROPERTIES are commanding so much attention. They are all very different in look, feel, style and location but they do all offer amenities galore.

Golf Enthusiast Estates
By Alyssa Mammano
Families, empty-nesters and bachelor types who may have had the idea to invest in a second-home rolling around in the back of their minds were reinvigorated in their searches in 2020 as the pandemic turned the world on its head. Reports claim that golf course properties saw a resurgence in the months following the COVID-19 outbreak, especially those in remote destinations. Many coming from larger, populous cities took the search for a secluded second residence more seriously. Locations within driving distance from buyers’ primary residences allowed them to travel between the two frequently, making the purchase seemingly more sound. With places of business and schools going remote for a period of time, now is a great an opportunity as any to pass the time at a golf course community. View Listings

Derivative of European castles and having historical significance rooted in upper-echelon ownership, magnificent manors were originally country estates with extensive land fortified to fend off uninvited visitors. Manors encompassed small towns where most all people lived in medieval times, housing a blacksmith, bakery, mill, orchard, gardens and a community of people to create a self-sufficient society. A grand hall within the main manor served as a central gathering space for the people of the community. The manor was owned by a royal lord or noble who resided in the manor, while villagers lived in its ancillary structures. Knights of the king would oversee the community and provide its profits from agriculture and business to the king. View Listings
