“The Red House Manor”, Quebec, QC, CANADA:Dating from 1608, the stunning and iconic “Old Red Manor” is unequivocally the oldest habitable building on the North American continent.

When Bertrand Chesnay de la Garenne received the Royal Concession in 1652, he found there “a solid ruin with three walls and a large stone fireplace of 5 feet long.” This is the left side of the Manor which contains the master fireplace. In 1764, the French Captain Cazeau added the second level, and the manor remained the property of the Cazeau family until 1940.

Restored in 2005-2006, to the most exacting standards of luxury and caring touch. It is 30 metres in length (96 ft) and 9 metres (30 ft) wide and has two levels, with multiple living, dining and entertaining areas, six generous bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. This property is for sale in two lots.

Two grand cypress-lined lanes ascend to a historic castle. Dotting the estate are restored Casali (farmhouses) each with dramatic glass-tiled private pools.

A Signature Development of Timbers Resorts, the Castello di Casole estate is one of the largest landholdings in all of Tuscany – a 4,200-acre game reserve and working agricultural estate actively producing vintage wine and olive oil.

Commanding the most favored sites throughout the property are the ruins of modest Casali, each of which are unique to each other and are separately named with their own custom style, layout and color scheme. Each Casale farmhouse is a collection of main home and outbuildings, which now serve as unique and inviting guest quarters. Indoor spaces for each family compound are 4,000 to 7,000 square feet or 370 to 650 square meters.

Prices range from 290,000 – 590,000 Euro for Residential Interests; Whole Ownership pricing starts at 3.7 million Euro.

In a world that can be brutal, harsh and tough going it is worth taking time to consider what we have enjoyed and what it means to us.

I thought it was an important time to consider what “Luxury” means to us all. It’s a chance to reflect over Thanksgiving and put into words what we can too often take for granted. The “Luxury is” is an amazing combination of two words – it is amazing because it causes us all to feel something, to imagine.

So what is Luxury to you? In 50 words or less write what “Luxury is” to you. We will publish as many responses as possible. Happy Thanksgiving!

Michael Marquette: Luxury is more than I can touch, it’s intangible. Luxury is an emotion, felt when I dare to dream of something that I value, that I have desired. It drives me forward, forces me to act, allows me to feel special, successful, spoiled, lucky – fortunate in every way.

Christine Watson: Luxury is the feeling of soft silk on your skin, wearing diamonds and pearls, rose petals scattered everywhere, being pampered and spoiled. Luxury is first class air travel, a personal valet, and Jimmy Choo shoes. Luxury is not having the need for anything, only the want.

Simon Turner: The ability to say sorry. The capacity to say I’m wrong. Knowledge: the desire to increase it and the timeliness of drawing upon it. Peace & Quiet. Happiness, Healthiness and Hope. Intangible.

Alex Lee: Luxury is excellence achieved.

Amy Cooper: Luxury to me involves good friends, wine and seafood in an ambient waterfront location! It also involves hot men, but let’s not go there!

Jayke Menese: Luxury is a home in Montreaux with a view of Lake Geneva. Can’t get better than that. The best setting and views in the world…”

Kevin Hussein Nguyen: Luxury is getting a full night’s rest, uninterrupted by nothing but sweet dreams.”

Thank you to everyone for sharing!

Barack Obama has changed the face of a nation by winning the US Presidential Race, and has already etched his name in history.  The mammoth task ahead of him should not be understated, but the boost of confidence that American’s and global citizens will take from his win should also not be underestimated.  Belief and hope can certainly contribute to positive change, and injections of both right now certainly can’t hurt.

Australian interest rates have been cut, as have those of Britain (by a whopping 1.5%) – clearly showing that there’s very few corners of the Earth that didn’t under-estimate the pace of the global economic slowdown.  And, having just returned from London where consumer sentiment is miserable, we all have a long way to go yet.  Right now, hope is a very attractive asset.

Always look on the bright side and stay as well informed as possible. Knowledge is the best currency right now.  We’re here to bankroll your brain: go the Nov 7 MTLH e-mag or browse through our blog.

Regards, Michael Marquette & Simon Turner

For those who have spare cash to burn we have found the perfect place for you – the $A4 billion Westfield Mall in West London that was opened today by new London Mayor Boris Johnson. This is anything but your average shopping arcade: not only is it the largest in London but it has managed to beat all of its competitors across Europe.

Fortunate enough to attend the opening, Simon Turner commented that the scale and “bling” of Australian Frank Lowy’s latest offering is quite spectacular.

 


The mall, with 265 shops – including Tiffany and Gucci – a 14-screen movie theatre, 50 restaurants, a gym, spa, a library and 4,500 parking spaces, also has a concierge team of 60 who speak 14 languages. With the luxury-minded shopper in mind, the mall has Valet parking as well as hands-free shopping and a chauffeur service.


The Westfield Executives are confident their mall will prove to be a hit in the long run and in spite of the credit, the mall expects to have 25 million shoppers each year as most of the shops are rented out already. Simply stunning! Christine Watson.

Overlooking Sailors Bay, this fantastically positioned, two storey home offers all the charm and beauty of Northbridge without losing any of its original character.

This property is ideal for the astute buyer who requires the peacefulness of city fringe living, yet the accessibility and convenience of being so close to the CBD of Sydney (7 kilometres away). This will appeal to those looking for a “community” appeal, and being positioned so close to all North Shore Private Schools is certainly a great asset.
