Architectural Spotlight | Craftsman Homes

CRAFTSMAN-HEADER

Originally a rally against prominent Victorian-era design, the Craftsman style home was first popularized in the late 1800’s. Up until World War I, when the Craftsman movement slowed, Gustav Stickley was at the forefront of the style creating hand-crafted artistic bungalows for the working class. After World War II, world-renowned designer Frank Lloyd Wright evolved Stickley’s original designs into the popular ranch-style homes that dot nearly every neighborhood across the United States.

The Craftsman movement saw a resurgence in the 1990’s – one that continues today. Let’s experience this popular architectural style with five captivating Craftsman homes.

The Molokai Ranch | Over 55,000 Acres of Historic Hawaiian Paradise

MOLOKAI-RANCH-HEADER

Also known as the “Friendly Isle,” Molokai is known for having a slow pace, rural style, and rich Hawaiian culture. As recently covered in The Wall Street JournalMolokai was formed by three separate volcanoes, as evidenced by the island’s environmental diversity compressed within its small land area. Lands that eventually became part of Molokai Ranch were assigned as part of the Great Mahele, Hawaii’s land division of 1848.

South Shore Beaches$260,000,000 USD | Maunaloa, Hawaii | Carvill Sotheby’s International Realty 

Generations of History

King Kamehameha V

King Kamehameha V

In 1859, King Kamehameha IV established a sheep ranch on the west end at Kaluako‘i. His brother, High Chief Kapuāiwa gained title to the land that is now encompassed by Molokai Ranch when he became King Kamehameha V in 1863, and he expanded this holding through acquisition of more land and addition of other types of livestock.

Princess Ruth Keli‘iokalani inherited the land on Molokai from King Kamehameha V upon his death. When she died in 1883, the property passed on to Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop, the last descendant of the Kamehameha dynasty. Princess Pauahi’s inheritance excluded the land of Kaluako‘i in West Molokai, as these were granted to her husband Charles Bishop in 1875.

In 1897, Charles M. Cooke, son of the early missionary teacher, Amos Starr Cooke, along with a group of Honolulu businessmen, purchased 70,000 acres of land in fee simple from the trustees of Princess Pauahi’s estate. The business group leased another 30,000 acres from the Hawaiian government.
In 1898, the businessmen started American Sugar Company Limited on Molokai. In 1908, Charles M. Cooke acquired 100% interest in the fee simple lands and subsequently established Molokai Ranch. George P. Cooke, son of Charles M. Cooke, succeeded his father to become the manager of Molokai Ranch. Under George P. Cooke, Molokai Ranch progressed through cattle grazing, sweet potato, and wheat crops. When the Ranch began producing honey, Molokai became the world’s largest producer of honey from 1910 to 1937.

Tidepools at Kawakiu Nui

Tidepools at Kawākiu Nui

By 1923, the Libby, McNeil & Libby Company had begun raising pineapple in the Maunaloa area on lands leased from Molokai Ranch. They continued operations until the operations were sold to the Dole Corporation in 1972. Del Monte, then known as California Packing Corporation, arrived in 1927 and made their headquarters at Kualapu‘u. They soon commenced large-scale pineapple cultivation, mostly on land leased from Molokai Ranch. Dole ceased its Molokai operations in 1976. Del Monte phased out its operations in the mid-1980s.

Kaluakoi Hotel and Golf

Kaluako’i Resort – Kaluako’i Resort and the surrounding 18-hole golf course is a prime oceanfront/hotel site.

In the early 1970s, Molokai Ranch, then owned by the Cooke family, entered into a partnership with Louisiana Land and Exploration Company for the development of the Kaluako‘i Hotel and Resort. After initial success, the cash requirements of these investments led to the eventual sale of Molokai Ranch stock to Brierly Investments Limited (later to become BIL International Limited), who became the sole stockholder in 1987. At that time, Molokai Ranch consisted of approximately 52,000 acres. The Kaluako‘i Hotel, under separate ownership, closed in 2000.

Maunaloa town

Maunaloa Town had its beginnings as a pineapple plantation town in 1923, when Libby, McNeil & Libby began to grow pineapple on land leased from Molokai Ranch.

In October 2001, BIL International, on behalf of Molokai Ranch, re-acquired 6,300 acres on the southwest corner of Molokai. In December 2001, Molokai Ranch acquired the land holdings of Kukui (Molokai), Inc., that included the abandoned Kaluako‘i Hotel, the Kaluako‘i Golf Course, and the undeveloped lands of the resort area. The golf course was renovated and re-opened in 2004 and closed in 2008. The hotel, golf course and most of the common facilities have yet to be re-opened.

Rodeo Grounds

Under the current ownership, not much has changed in recent years. While Molokai Ranch has continued to engage in active cattle ranching and utilities operations, reopening the Kaluako‘i Hotel and resort operations has not been a priority. The time has arrived to offer a new owner the freedom to realize the property’s potential and to create an enduring legacy.

Life in a College Town

College-Town-Header

For residents of college towns, the attraction isn’t just about an allegiance to a school but an affinity for a community that has an impressive mix of characteristics: large city offerings and small town spirit.

Universities contribute to the intellectual and cultural life of a region by offering lectures, concerts, culinary and literary options. Then there’s the sports component, both as spectator and participant. Where young people are, biking, hiking, jogging and other recreational activities follow. Active retirees are especially drawn to lifelong learning opportunities. Many institutions offer discounts for the use of sports facilities, courses and plays. What’s more, universities with medical schools translate into excellent health care options.

From an investment prospective, college towns are known for their resiliency. For one thing, they often draw major employers to the area and, at the same time, support a flourishing start-up scene. Entrepreneurs are known to thrive in such environments.

Ohio1$2,999,000 USD | Columbus, Ohio | Street Sotheby’s International Realty

Columbus, home to Ohio State University (OSU) with an enrollment of nearly 60,000 according to school figures, is an example. The institution churns out thousands of graduates each year, many of whom stay in the area, says Scott Street of Street Sotheby’s International Realty. “Corporate entities have taken note and many have chosen to relocate to Columbus. The tech startup and entrepreneurial scene has also caught on in recent years, and millions of dollars in seed money are helping grow companies and jobs in and aroun
d the OSU campus.”

A stable economy bodes well for the housing market. Even in down markets inventory is tight. Property owners in the rental pool can count on consistent student demand, though turnover is high.

Ohio2$430,000 USD | Columbus, Ohio | Street Sotheby’s International Realty

But plenty of people are settling in themselves. Recent grads-turned-first-time homeowners as well as professors, researchers and administrators who want a reasonable commute find a lot to love about collegiate living. “Part of the reason Ohio State is able to pack Ohio Stadium, The Horseshoe, with 100,000-plus people every weekend during football season is because the alumni stay close to home. Many graduates settle in the surrounding suburbs, which are all less than a 20-minute drive to campus,” Scott says.

Austin1$1,857,000 USD | Austin, Texas | Kuper Sotheby’s International Realty

Austin, home of flagship campus of the University of Texas, also boasts one of the country’s largest student bodies at more than 51,000. “There’s so much going on in the area and at the university,” says Mike Vilece of Kuper Sotheby’s International Realty. “There’s no limit to what you can get out of the city. You could be out in the Hill Country or be next to 100,000 of your closest friends on a Saturday for a football game.”

Austin2$6,950,000 USD | Austin, Texas | Kuper Sotheby’s International Realty

Alumni, including empty nesters and baby boomers, returning to settle down are finding a different Austin than they experienced during their school years. “A lot of people can’t believe how the city has changed over the years,” says Vilece. “It’s not the city it used to be as far architecture and construction. New buildings are popping up everywhere, but the culture and vibe are still alive and well.”

Sotheby’s Institute of Art | New Opportunities for Latin American Art at Auction

larger_banner-2

Sotheby’s has unexpectedly become the most promising possibility for Latin American art in the auction rooms. In a long-awaited decision, the auction house announced it will integrate Latin American art into its contemporary auction sales in New York – starting this Autumn.

Offering lots of Latin American artists in the mainstream auction sales is not unprecedented, though. Most recently, at the May Contemporary Art Evening sales, Mira Schendel’s Untitled from the series Droguinhas (Little Nothings) (1966), and Sergio Camargo’s Untitled (Relief No. 19/46) were sold for $1.5 million. And, these are just two examples of many others that have sold in previous seasons.

larger_bannerWifredo Lam, Les oiseaux voiles, 1945

This announcement sets a new strategy for the auction house – one of many taken by the company over the past two years, under the leadership of Tad Smith. It is a shift from an established practice dating back to the foundation of their Latin American Art Department in 1979. However, it does not represent a complete break. The Latin American team will continue to source the lots that will be on offer at the Contemporary auction sales; and we could also assume that lots benefitting from this “upgrade” will be those from blue-chip artists in the race for the million-and-above price tags.

Three Homes Once Belonging to Campbell Soup Company Heirs

CampbellsHeader-3

Whether it’s the comfort offered in a classic flavor or a famed modernist masterpiece by Andy Warhol, the Campbell Soup Company and their iconic can are pop-cultural and culinary staples. The Dorrance family represents the heirs to the aforementioned household name brand and, as recently covered by Mansion Global  and The Wall Street Journal, three of the family’s homes have recently come to market in the Northeastern United States.

BirdHouse1$12,500,000 USD | Newport, Rhode Island | Gustave White Sotheby’s International Realty 

The first, known as “The Bird House,” is the former home Dorrance Hill Hamilton and can be found at one of the highest points in Newport, Rhode Island. State-of-the-art in every aspect, from geothermal heating and cooling to exquisitely crafted details and top-of-the-line amenities, the soaring two-story entrance hall and living room with floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace enjoy panoramic ocean views. 

BirdHouse5

Dorrance, or “Dodo” as she was known by her closest friends, passed away this past April at 88. Before her death, she spared no expense to create a beautiful sanctuary using all that modern technology can provide including Tischler custom windows and doors, three-stop elevator, radiant heated floors, whole house generator, and exquisite landscaping.

BirdHouse6

At nearly 10,000 square-feet of living space on over three-and-one-half-acres, the home bears it’s ornithological moniker from its many bird-inspired design elements throughout.

LindenHill1$16,500,000 USD | Gladwyne, Pennsylvania | Kurfiss Sotheby’s International Realty 

The second home, named “Linden Hill,” can be found in Gladwyne, Pennsylvania. Designed between 1928 and 1931 by Edmund B. Gilchrist for stockbroker Rodman Ellison Griscom, this French Norman-Style home was owned by the Dorrance family for over 50 years.

LindenHill4

Sprawling 67 acres, discover an initial courtyard formed by turreted caretaker’s quarters, a 10-car garage, stables and additional staff houses leads to the crest of a hill. At the end of a narrow-walled lane, the magnificent manor house reveals itself, a majestic example of inspired design of breathtaking scale and symmetry. Pass through the courtyard entry where brick chimney stacks on guest houses cleverly frame the main house, and behold a truly historic mansion, beautifully maintained with complete respect for its origins, yet offering every modern amenity. 

LindenHill6

Its grand-scale formal rooms offer elegant and easy, expansive or intimate entertaining spaces. Private quarters are equally inviting with family living quarters that accommodate guests for short-term or extended stays. Beyond the main house are two pools, a pool house, tennis court and a beautiful aviary, all set within absolutely stunning gardens and grounds.

Maine1$6,295,000 USD | Bar Harbor, Maine | The Swan Agency Sotheby’s International Realty 

Lastly, we find ourselves in Bar Harbor, Maine at “La Rochelle” – a captivating waterfront retreat and one of the village’s most treasured addresses. As covered in Mansion Global, the home is truly an iconic piece of Bar Harbor’s legacy.

Maine4

In the early 1940s, the home belonged to Tristram and Ethel Colket; before marrying Tristram, Ethel bore the surname Dorrance as she was daughter of John Thompson Dorrance, co-founder of the Campbell Soup Company. Built in 1902, this Georgian Revival masterpiece was the village’s first brick summer cottage.

Maine6

Looking out over Frenchman Bay, this sprawling home is an architectural and historic masterpiece; among its features are forty-one rooms in the 13,000 plus square-feet of living space, manicured gardens and lawn, and nearly three oceanfront acres.
