Moonlight Basin Privacy, Views Featured in Wall Street Journal

Moonlight Basin in Big Sky, Montana, was included in a recent Wall Street Journal story about communities where the “prime amenity” is large lots that afford privacy and great views. Among those featured was Moonlight Basin’s 655-acre Ulery’s Lakes neighborhood, where six 20-acre parcels are on the market. “The covenants at Ulery’s Lakes encourage sociable behavior,” wrote Amy Gamerman. “Owners must build their homes, guest barns and corrals within a 2-acre envelope on their property, but otherwise grant each other access to one another’s land for hikes, horseback riding and fishing. Hunting isn’t allowed – the preserve lies in a major migratory path for elk – but residents can boat and fish in a private alpine lake and two stocked trout ponds.” Read the Wall Street Journal...

The 5.5 LS hybrid bag is light enough to carry, at 5 1/2 pounds, while also featuring a bigger, 11-inch diameter top and nine pockets. The C-130 offers the abundance of pocket space and golfer-friendly features that have kept it in the top spot for eight years, plus some new features such as Smart Straps that offer a new way to secure the bag to a cart. In the travel cover category, Golf Digest wrote, “The Sun Mountain Meridian ClubGlider, with its retractable rolling legs, moves so effortlessly through airports it’s as if you have a golf-bag valet escorting your clubs everywhere from check-in to baggage claim and beyond.

Hall and Hall Plantation Featured by Bloomberg Pursuits

An $11.5 million North Carolina plantation listed by Hall and Hall was featured by Bloomberg Pursuits recently, which noted that it dates to before the American Revolution. James Tarmy wrote that the property was part of a 26,000-acre tract named “Land of Eden” in a marketing ploy to entice Europeans to settle there. It “had passed through just six different owners’ hands but had been whittled down to about 770 acres” by 2001. The current owner bought several neighboring tracts to expand it to nearly 1,800 acres and uses it as a hunting retreat. Read the Bloomberg Pursuits...

Cowboys & Indians Magazine Visits Red Reflet Ranch in Wyoming

Cowboys & Indians magazine recently highlighted the horseback activities available at Red Reflet Ranch in Ten Sleep, Wyoming. Set in the red Chugwater rock formation, the 30,000-acre guest ranch has miles of trails – some designed for hiking, some for ATVs, but riding horses is the most popular activity. Writer Victoria Mechler noted that the ranch offers more than just “nose-to-tail trail rides,” however. With the only indoor arena in the area, roping and barrel racing practice is possible, and guests receive one-on-one time with wranglers and rodeo champs. Chalets at the ranch include fully stocked kitchens for breakfast, while guests and ranch owners Bob and Laurence Kaplan gather in the main lodge for family-style meals and lively conversation at lunch and dinner.

Jon Kohler & Associates, Hall and Hall Red Hills Real Estate in Wall Street Journal

Jon Kohler & Associates and Hall and Hall real estate listings in the Red Hills quail-hunting region on the Georgia-Florida border were featured by the Wall Street Journal recently. The first story, by writer Nancy Keates, examined the quail-hunting heritage of the nearly 300,000-acre region and efforts to sell or donate lands for conservation. Jon Kohler of brokerage firm Jon Kohler & Associates said about two-thirds of the 200 plantations in the Red Hills remain with the descendants of the original owners, or with friends and acquaintances. “It was an unspoken rule not to sell to anyone outside the circle,” Kohler told Keates. The second story, by Candace Taylor, detailed the sale of the 7,235-acre Blue Springs Plantation in South Georgia for roughly $40 million. Hall and Hall’s Elliott Davenport Jr. represented the buyer, an avid hunter who had been looking at the plantation for over a year. Read the Wall Street Journal’s Red Hills story.

Moonlight Basin House Is Best of Year for Wall Street Journal, Zillow

A house at the Moonlight Basin community in Big Sky, Montana, has been voted Best of the Year for 2016 by readers of the Wall Street Journal and Zillow Porchlight. The 16,113-square-foot, six-bedroom, six-bathroom vacation house is owned by Marty and Julie Belz of Memphis, Tennessee. It features a private ski bridge allowing access to the neighboring Big Sky Resort. “We had skied Vail, Aspen, Beaver Creek, Deer Valley and Telluride and we just never felt at home in those places,” Julie Belz told Wall Street Journal writer Sarah Tilton. “Big Sky felt more like home to us; it was much more down to earth than the other ski resorts we’d visited.” Read the Wall Street Journal story.
