Preserve-Framed2Preserve-Framed3Aerie Homes, the developer of The Preserve at the Bay Club, currently has two homes under construction.   The framing of their model home is nearly complete and the foundation of their spec home has been poured and its framing is now underway. They anticipate having both homes completed by this spring.

According to Paul Abelite, President of Aerie Homes, three distinctly different home designs ranging from 1,825 to 2,115 sf, with first or second floor master options, three or four bedrooms, and two-and-a-half baths will be offered. Exterior materials will include weather-resistant woods, top of the line windows, and cedar shingles, making the homes  as durable as their design is timeless.  Homes will feature a minimum of two-car garages, and options include three or four bedrooms, sunroom, bonus room and golf cart garage, not to mention many interior finish options.

In addition to activity in The Preserve, two other homes are in the design stage, with at least one ground breaking schedule for May 2014. For more information on real estate opportunities, please contact Dave Andrews at 508-207-9232 or sales@bayclubmatt.com.

In Pink the New Black?

Wednesday, 12. February 2014 15:44

Rose
Don’t let the snow on the ground stop you from chilling out with a glass of Rose.  The number of Provence Rose’s in the United States has tripled in the past five years. No longer considered that sweet pink wine”, it has become a festive as well as food wine.  Rose’s are a great compliment to Asian dishes, Sushi as well as lobster and affordable with bottle pricing normally between $10 and $25.

Restaurant Manager Sue Papi has had great success with AIX Rose, a dry Rose from Provence.  It has a bright, pale-pink color and features a delicate balance of crisp acidity and soft, ripe summer fruit with a  creamy finish.

Cheers!

Jim’s Journey

Bay Club Executive Chef Jim Mercer

While walking about the streets of San Francisco last month I discovered that the Winter Fancy Foods Show was going on at the Moscone Center.  I had not been to the show in years so I decided to purchase a ticket and spend the afternoon exploring the endless offerings of national and international, new and established, prized gourmet foods. I now know far more than anyone needs to know about burger condiments, tea, chocolate, cheese, Kobe beef and the like.  What piqued my interest was the olive oil from NapaValley.  I particularly liked Grove 45 from St. Helena.

On my way up to Wine Country after my visit to San Francisco I accidently discovered two awesome little towns; Port Costa and Crockett.  The only thing you can see from the highway as you approach Crockett is the giant C and H Sugar sign. As I entered it felt like a secret village just getting ready for a hipster revival.  There is a great deli and a couple of very cool galleries in this one neighborhood town at the end of a road to nowhere.  At the end of that road is a great find called the Bull Valley Roadhouse.  A super hip restaurant serving old school cocktails and fine food from the team of The Slanted Door.  I heard Conde Nast has even got hip to the place.  Be sure to check it out if you are in the area.

Happy Travels,
Jim

February is American Heart Health by Fitness Director Dave Maloney

Monday, 3. February 2014 13:04

Heart-February
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, killing more than 600,000 Americans each year. And it’s why we devote the entire month of February to raising awareness of heart health.  You should also know:

  • Cardiovascular disease kills more people each year than cancer, lower respiratory diseases and accidents.
  • Cigarette smokers are two to three times more likely to die from coronary heart disease than nonsmokers.
  • Heart disease is the leading cause of death for women in the United States, killing 292,188 women in 2009, that’s 1 in every 4 female deaths
  • Heart disease killed 631,636 people in 2006.

So what can you do to protect yourself from heart disease? While there are some risk factors you can’t control, such as age, gender, heredity, race and diabetes, there are risk factors for heart disease you CAN control, like high cholesterol, high blood pressure, smoking, exercise, obesity and stress.

By eating a healthy diet that includes plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables and exercising regularly for at least 30 minutes each day, you can do wonders for your heart. Determine whether or not your weight is within a healthy range, don’t smoke and limit how much alcohol you drink. You should also talk with your health care provider about your heart care. Talk to him or her about monitoring your blood pressure, testing your cholesterol levels and regularly monitoring your blood sugar levels if you have diabetes.
