caters to the luxury market,
and, says company president
Robert Borden, “the very
high end tends to have water
attached.” The firm offers an abundance of
properties along New England’s coasts and
lakesides. “The Vineyard, Nantucket, the
coast of Maine, Lake Champlain, Squam
Lake [the Golden Pond in New Hampshire
made famous by the Fondas] . . . these are all
strong areas for us,” Borden says. The company website lets you search categories that
include saltwater, freshwater, and island.
Don’t get your hopes up if you’re looking for
something under seven figures — though
sometimes there might be “a stocking stuffer”
for $500,000, Borden says. LandVest, 10 Post

antiques Might the oldest
house in Bristol, Rhode Island,
built in 1690, be your thing? A
Queen Anne Victorian with a
turret? If the homes on your
search must include terms like “wide plank
floors,” “gunstock posts,” and “original pocket
doors,” check out Antique Homes magazine.
It showcases hundreds of antique houses
listed by real estate agencies throughout New
England. Published by John Petraglia, who
owns Petraglia Real Estate in Douglas, Massachusetts, the magazine also includes articles
on everything from antique doorknobs to historically accurate wood finishes, along with
listings for craftsmen who work on antiques.
Even if you’re not in the market, pictures of
homes with original Moses Eaton stenciling
and paneled fireplaces make great eye candy. Antique Homes magazine; 508-476-7271,
