Resources Real Estate Summer 2017 issue of Portfolio is Now Available!

August 11th, 2017 — Resources Real Estate announced the publication of the Summer 2017 issue of Portfolio, its lifestyle magazine.

The Summer 2017 issue showcases splendid Monmouth county homes in Atlantic Highlands, Colts Neck, Fair Haven, Highlands, Holmdel, Little Silver, Long Branch, Middletown, Monmouth Beach, Red Bank, Rumson, Sea Bright, Shrewsbury, and Tinton Falls, as well as first-time home buyer opportunities, investment properties, and some exciting commercial properties for sale.

In this issue, readers will marvel in the splendor of an 8,000 square-foot English Tudor Manor house with panoramic views of the Navesink River.   This Locust, NJ home boasts seven bedrooms, seven bathrooms, gourmet kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, walk-out finished lower level with wine cellar and billiards, art deco theatre, outdoor large spa, private dock with two boat lifts, and a separate living space for guests

Foodies will enjoy ‘Small Town, Big Flavors,’ a piece introducing Porcini, a charming restaurant in the town of Highlands.  Owned by couple Chris and Alexandria, Porcini offers Italian American dishes with a hint of other international cuisines in an intimate atmosphere.

‘Make Your Home in Holmdel’ showcases a beautiful Colonial home in a town known for its fabulous landscapes.  The 4-bedroom, 3-car garage home is located in the coveted Falcons Ridge neighborhood and is close to the top rated Holmdel High School.

‘Waterfront Masterpiece’ presents a Rumson home that readers will have to see to believe.  Featuring over 8,000 square feet of luxury on a private lot, this five-bedroom, five-bathroom house overlooks the Shrewsbury River and offers 180-degree sweeping water views from its family room.  This three-level house boasts a dramatic marble foyer with elevator access to all three levels, custom gourmet kitchen with Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, open floor plan, private theater, four fireplaces, wine room and custom finishes throughout, and a stunning outdoor pool oasis and deep water dock.  The master bedroom suite has its own sitting room overlooking the river, his and her office, private dressing room and luxurious bathroom with master Jacuzzi tub, oversized custom glass shower and marble top vanities.  Underground electric and back-up generators keep peace of mind during inclement weather, and a location within an easy commute to NYC via high speed ferry make this a truly rare find.  Make sure to check out photos of the property featured in the magazine.

This issue’s ‘Short List’ focuses on Long Branch, a beach resort town that was known in the 19th century as “Hollywood of the East” and has recently been seeing a rebirth.  This regular column highlights Long Branch’s ocean front shopping and dining scene, as well as its vibrant cultural offerings and numerous open-air concerts.

And lastly, the international properties in the Summer issue come from Resources’ luxury real estate global partners in Barcelona.  Three properties are presented: a classically elegant four-story residence, a modern luxury apartment in a plush high-rise, and a palace-like home designed by modernist architect Salvador Puiggros Figueras.

“We specialize in the luxury market for Monmouth County and beyond, and our magazine represents just that,” said Senior Partner and Broker Carolynn Diakon. “Resources Real Estate offers a lifestyle that our clients are a part of, and people aspire to belong to.”

“Earlier this year we were named to the Board of Regents of Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate,” said Managing Partner and Broker Thomas McCormack.“  This honor aligns with our strategy to offer more international properties to our clients, as well as more effectively showcase our local properties to international buyers.  This issue continues to mirror this approach.”
