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...

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...
