duPont REGISTRY A Buyers Gallery of Fine Homes® November 2019 Uncovered

Dear Readers,

It is difficult to believe that we are already going to press with the November issue. It seems like just days ago that I was wishing you a happy new year. Maybe where you are the leaves have started to change and the tell-tale signs of Winter are approaching. Here in the Tampa Bay Area of Florida we have 3 basic seasons; Hot, Hurricane and Christmas. For some of you, the seasons may be observed by the beginning or ending of your favorite sport. For all of us though, we recognize this time of year as a season of thanksgiving. It is a great time to tell someone what they have meant to your life, either personally or professionally. With that in mind, it is appropriate to thank not only our advertising partners, but as importantly, you, our loyal readers. It is because of you that we have been able to pursue our passion to showcase the luxury lifestyle to the world for over twenty-three years with this publication. Thank you all.

— Thomas L. duPont, Publisher Emeritus

Purchasing Waterfront Properties

By Alyssa Mammano

“The picturesque setting of a waterfront home, whether on the ocean or at the lake, encapsulates the sentiment of a never-ending vacation. Waterfront properties come at a premium for good reason; limited inventory and strong resale value create high demand for these exclusive homesites. Living on the water offers a prime setting for family gatherings and entertaining, as well as day-to-day living. A plethora of activities are also at your fingertips when you live along the water.”  View Editorial
