Ep. 111 – Flying Home and Flying to Work

Matthew Maschler:
Welcome to the Real Estate Finder podcast. I’m Matthew Maschler, real estate broker with the signature real estate companies here in the great state of Florida, and I wanted to talk to you today about a very, very strange community. Strange is a bad word. Interesting. There’s nothing bad about it. Strange is talking negative. It was incredible. I want to talk to you today about an incredible community that I recently discovered something that I’ve driven by often, and we were working with a buyer and they ended up liking the property. And we have that buyer under contract, and there’s another house there, another property there for sale. So this is the property for you if you are an airplane enthusiast, if you like to fly airplanes or helicopters, or if you’re a pilot or a horse lover because of the community. Besides being friendly for people with airplanes and helicopters is also friendly for people with horses or also people who just enjoy their privacy because it’s a very private community.
It’s in Delray Beach, off Hagan Ranch Road, in between Hagan Ranch and Power Line Road, and it’s just off Lake Ida. And the community has, as a community amenity, a one mile airstrip that people can use to take off to fly there. I have some friends in the studio that we were doing the Math Mania podcast with my friend Perry, you’re not along. You’ve seen this. You’ve driven by This is the anti Aome. Yeah. Have you been there? I mean, I’ve ridden by it. You’ve by it. It’s never been in. Never been in. No. If you want to go in, I’ll take you in. It is incredible. There is a one mile grass airfield. It’s amazing. The Antiquer Aerodrome is a unique community of custom built homes that combines the prestige of living in Delray Beach, the privacy of large lot sizes over two acres, the convenience of having your own private air park and the luxury of living in a horse friendly community.
It’s a gated community of only 35 homes, and each home sits on at least two and a third acres. So there’s privacy and tranquility, even though you’re in an airpark. The private grass airstrip is 5,500 feet with a 600 foot approach. It offers dust to dawn lighting for the convenience of the fly-in homeowner. So most of the residences have their own private hangar, so not only can it house their private plane, but there’s people keep their boats, ATVs, RVs, big RVs in there, collectible cars, and more So it’s off the turnpike and Atlantic Avenue. It’s off Lake Ida Road and the gate is on Hagan Ranch.
There’s houses on the right side of the community when you come in, and that’s where the airstrip is. The houses on the left side, there’s another community on the left, so only half of that street is part of the Air Park. So the first half mile, when you come in, there’s houses on the right, the second half mile. There’s houses on both sides, but the houses on the left, there is enough grass that you can drive your airplane behind it, cross the street at the end, and then get to the air park to take off. But then if you have a helicopter, you could just take off and land straight from your backyard. So it’s just amazing to live in this community that’s 10 minutes from the beach surrounded by luxury homes. And what was interesting to me is probably the original owners in the seventies or eighties, they had a little Cessna or Beachcraft or a helicopter, and they wanted to be in a big lot. They weren’t necessarily uber wealthy or well off, but as these places start turning over, you would think that someone of means would be buying in that way. They can keep their plane or their RV or all their toys in the hangar. So we have one under contract and we have another one. The address is 7 1 9 4 Skyline Drive. The house is tiny. It’s 3 2 1400 square feet on two and a half acres. It was built in 1969. So it’s this little tiny cottage with a giant hangar for airplanes.
And I think that the right buyer property is 1.8 million. So I mean, that’s almost land value if you want over two acres of land with a hanger. So this week I am taking off early this week to head to WrestleMania, so I didn’t have that much that I wanted to talk about here at Real Estate Finder. We just dropped the newsletter. So I did feature this home in the Signature Real Estate Finder newsletter. So if you’re listening to the podcast and you don’t get a copy of the newsletter, send me an email, Matt at Real Estate Finder. I’ll add you to the newsletter list. I have a couple of friends in the studio with me today. We were doing the Matthew Mania podcast, Perry Jules, and Neil the Hill. Hi Neil, how are you?
Neil Glazier:
Hey, how are
Matthew Maschler:
You? Asked me a question about my introduction.
Neil Glazier:
Yeah, well, I mean it was kind of answered, but I thought you were going to say, welcome to the Real Estate Finder podcast. I’m Matthew Maschler, a wrestling fan. I’m Matthew Maor, a wrestling fan who does real estate broker as if it’s my real job.
Matthew Maschler:
So yeah, I start the Matthew Mania podcast and I say I’m a real estate broker who watches wrestling as if it’s my job. So on the real estate funder podcast, I’m like, I’m Matthew Maschler wrestling fan who
Neil Glazier:
Does real estate.
It’s my real estate, it’s my real job
Matthew Maschler:
Wrestling fan who practices real estate to support his habit. So Jules, do you get my email newsletter? Yes, I do. Did you get this once?
Jules:
I’ve checked it. I just got back in the country. Oh, where
Matthew Maschler:
Were you? I
Jules:
Was in Columbia.
Matthew Maschler:
Oh, fun. Business or pleasure?
Jules:
Both.
Matthew Maschler:
Both. Alright. I don’t do any international real estate. I’ve never done a trip to Columbia to look at real estate. I don’t even think I would know how.
Jules:
I always ask. I had a driver with me the whole time that was born and raised in this town I went to. And I always ask, how much is this house? I always ask because I’m just curious to know. Of course, when I go to a new place, I always think I want to move there. So the houses are gorgeous there though. But the prices were nothing in Jamaica. Let’s just say an eight bedroom mansion on the mountain and you can see the ocean from every window. It’s like $180,000.
Matthew Maschler:
That’s
Jules:
Amazing. In Columbia, it’s like the price is kind of mirrored here. So it wasn’t like,
Matthew Maschler:
And my friend Patty. Hey Perry, how are you? Hey Matt. So we talked before you drive past the Antigua air. Yeah. Have you ever seen the airplanes take off? Oh yeah.
Perry:
Yeah. It’s funny because actually up until about, what did they say? I was today years old when I actually learned what that place was. Same. I’d always seen it. I assumed it was just a private airfield. Right. I didn’t know. I didn’t know it was a community.
Matthew Maschler:
But what is a private airfield? You thought anybody could just land?
Perry:
Yeah. I didn’t know there were people actually living behind those gates.
Matthew Maschler:
And what’s weird about, because there’s a fire station on the south of it. So what’s weird about it is if it is an airfield, where’s the tower? And
Perry:
You can see it if you go,
Matthew Maschler:
I don’t think there’s a tower.
Perry:
Yeah. You can see mean, I don’t know if it’s officially a tower, but if you drive along, I guess it’s Lake Ida, and you look south, you can see there’s some structures that are obviously taller than everything else.
Matthew Maschler:
I think those are the hangers.
Perry:
Oh, it could
Matthew Maschler:
Be. Or the fireplace As an airport, it wouldn’t make any sense to have this weird grassy airport. So yeah, it’s a private airstrip, which I think Neil could be fun with a big hanger. We can set up a big wrestling ring and a hanger. It’s weird to me that it’s horse friendly. Right, because horses and airplanes don’t seem to mix.
Jules:
No, my mind was blown when you said it was weird to meet delrey in horses. I’m like, and then airplanes. I totally thought you were talking about Wellington. That’s such a Wellington thing. Horses and small aircraft. Yeah, you said that right? My mouth dropped clearly. I saw his reaction too.
Matthew Maschler:
There’s a similar arrow, Jerome, I think in Wellington.
Jules:
But how great is that though? I mean, that sounds like a wonderful to me. I’m sold. Let me just find a husband and buy an airplane and we’ll go ahead and move on over there. Yeah,
Matthew Maschler:
I want to find someone there who has an airplane that wants to be my little, if you would give me rides. I mean,
Jules:
It sounds awesome.
Matthew Maschler:
I could drive over there and it’s
Jules:
Delray, you’re still kind of in civilization here. Yeah, I
Perry:
Live two or three miles from there. That’s awesome.
Matthew Maschler:
I know in Long Lake Estates, one don’t allow horses, and two, they do not allow helicopters to land. John Henry, who owns the Patriots Patriot, he used to live in Long Lake, the States, and he tried to land this helicopter once and the HOA told him never again. Stone Creek Ranch.
Jules:
I had that problem before. Yeah.
Matthew Maschler:
Stone Creek Ranch again, no horses allowed. And I’m pretty sure Wayne Heisen and JR would land this helicopter. Nobody said anything. It’s Wayne. Yeah, those hazards are more spread out than Long Lake, the States. But it didn’t have a hanger to pull the helicopter in. Right. Yeah. I just think it’d be such a game changer. I don’t have any intention to learn how to fly, so I wouldn’t get a little propeller plane or helicopter. But that would be fun, especially to get to some of the road trips that Neil and I go on.
Jules:
Oh yeah, for sure. You go to have lunch in the Keys.
Perry:
You ever been in one of those little Cessna planes? A little two seaters? Yeah. They’re pretty awesome.
Matthew Maschler:
Yeah. Yeah. And they’re weird. They’re almost like cars. Yeah, they’re not jets. Definitely. They’re not the same thing. So anyway. Yeah. So we can wrap it up unless you want to talk about real estate at all. Perry’s actually a former customer of mine. Are you still
Perry:
Renting? No, actually I bought that house.
Matthew Maschler:
You bought the house you renting? Yeah. Oh, that’s awesome. Yeah,
Perry:
It was a great house. Matthew helped me when I moved here. We had some mutual friends, I think, and then ends up, I was teaching where your kids went to school and he’s, oh, let me find it. Oh, he’s real estate. Great. I need a place to live. And one of your agents helped me find the house that I fell in love with and rented. That’s awesome. And I was going to sign my fourth year. I was loving not owning a house and he said, well, I’m going to sell. And I said, well, all my stuff’s already here.
Jules:
I as well
Perry:
Buy it. Might as well just buy it. Right.
Matthew Maschler:
Yeah. That’s what Neil did though. Yeah, I was going
Jules:
To say, it’s
Matthew Maschler:
Same thing Brian found you the rental and then you ended up buying it. They were going
Jules:
To sell it and I’m like, eh. Too much work to move.
Matthew Maschler:
It’s a lot of work to move and yeah, so to all my realtors out there, always make sure when you put in the lease that you get paid on renewal commissions and that you get paid on eventual if the tenant ever buys the property. You want to put that on the, when you’re the listing agent, when you’re the tenant’s agent, you don’t really have a choice to put that in there. So alright. We’re going to call it a day, unless anybody has anything.
Jules:
Is that your purse on the
Matthew Maschler:
Table? That is my purse. I don’t know. I
Jules:
Love it.
Matthew Maschler:
I had a weird briefcase. And
Jules:
So are we calling it a purse? Purse or is it when
Matthew Maschler:
No, it’s mine. It’s
Jules:
A man purse. Did you go to the No. A man purse has a strap that you put around you. Right. This is a legit purse.
Matthew Maschler:
It’s a purse
Jules:
Carry. I mean, yeah, I like it. D, that’s purse. I like it. She, it’s a great spacial. I mean, I get why you like the bag. Yeah. Did it come with the, let me see that. Did it come with a little dog over here? Yeah. Does it come with a Yorkie, a tea coffee? Yorkie.
Matthew Maschler:
I like to present it this way. I find it to be a little bit more manly this way than that way.
Jules:
Oh definitely. Oh my gosh. What did you do to it? Dirty. This is why a man doesn’t need a designer bag. I got to clean it. Look at what you did to it.
Matthew Maschler:
I like the right,
Jules:
I mean, it’s a beautiful bag. It’s great space. Do you hold it like this? No. With this? No. Now this is good.
Matthew Maschler:
You know those clear plastic bags that you bring to an NFL game? Yeah. So I use that a lot. And I go on the airplanes with that, with the
Jules:
Clear bag,
Matthew Maschler:
The clear, well, it stands on its own when I put it on the ground and it’s the perfect size and it’s nice and big. This
Jules:
One doesn’t even have feet
Matthew Maschler:
And it’s nice and big and open.
Jules:
I got to go for shopping with you. I’ll show you a great bag. I’ll get you exactly what you’re looking for. But yeah, it’s a good starter bag for you. Congratulations. A goyard is a beautiful purchase here. I love it for you.
Matthew Maschler:
When I saw that, I’m like, that’s the exact size I’m looking for. So I wanted to replace the clear plastic bag when I go in the airplane.
Jules:
I don’t love it for you though, because I don’t love, do you have a purse? You don’t have a strap. Shoulder strap when you’re tired of holding it in your hand or you get a soda and a sandwich. You know what I mean? The
Matthew Maschler:
Clear plastic bag doesn’t have a
Jules:
Strap. It doesn’t. So you’ve been walking around holding a bag. But see, that’s to take when I’m shopping for a bag. But this is great. I mean, I love it. I want to clean it for, I
Matthew Maschler:
Had it the other day. My kid brother goes, just assumed it was Wendy’s and then I start taking it. He’s like, Matt, is that your,
Jules:
I mean, I saw it on the table and I was like, is Wendy here? But obviously I’ve been sitting here and I don’t see Wendy and they
Matthew Maschler:
Assume it’s your wife’s,
Jules:
That means,
Matthew Maschler:
Yeah, it’s not
Jules:
Right. What does Wendy say about this? She
Matthew Maschler:
Bought it for me.
Jules:
I love her for that. She’s the best. It’s a great bag though. I love it. It’s perfect. I’m here for it. It’s better than briefcase. Briefcases are too. Well
Matthew Maschler:
The briefcase, you have to lie down flat and then you pop open and then everything’s Can I look
Jules:
Inside? Yeah,
Matthew Maschler:
Sure.
Jules:
What does Matt ler have in his purse? If there is a makeup bag
Matthew Maschler:
In there, it’s got a checkbook because I’m sponsoring this basketball team in Broward County. Yeah. So I had to bring my checkbook. This
Jules:
Is a great space here. I will say it does look like I do agree with you. It’s file for Look at the inside. Absolutely. It opens like a briefcase,
Matthew Maschler:
But it opens from the top. So the briefcase, you light it flat and then you open it up say,
Jules:
I’ve never had a briefcase. I like this glazing over right now. And the never full can’t do this. No, the Louis, this is a great, how It’s like a rectangle.
Matthew Maschler:
Precious. I’m here for

Jules:
I mean, that’s the total briefcase. Just disguised as a beautiful bag.
Matthew Maschler:
But briefcase would go like this and then you have to pop it open. That a big mess.
Jules:

Matthew Maschler:
Just throw it in there. Maybe
Jules:
We should start a man’s briefcase line.
Matthew Maschler:
Yeah, yeah. Sell it to Louis Vuitton.

A daily,
Matthew Maschler:
I got a speedy at Louis Vuitton. But it’s the
Jules:
Speedy, have a zipper. So they’re,
Matthew Maschler:
It’s a zipper. It’s more like a duffel bag. It’s more like a gym bag. I got the 40. It’s too big. And the 25, which is this size just looks too feminine. What
Jules:
About the never fool
Matthew Maschler:
That’s yours. Yeah. It’s, I find that to be more feminine looking than this one. Jules, what’s your purse look like?
Jules:
It’s a, I like a big bag too,
Matthew Maschler:
But that I can’t,
Jules:
Of course, I don’t
Matthew Maschler:
Think
Jules:
I bought two things and the CVS or seat is legit like two and a half feet long. But yeah, it’s got good
Matthew Maschler:
Space. Lemme see that. But the
Jules:
Thing about
Matthew Maschler:
This, but see, it’s not as structured.
Jules:
No, it’s not. That’s why I said, wow, that thing’s nice. It’s very,
Matthew Maschler:
If I’m walking around with this,
Jules:
They have,
Matthew Maschler:
That is definitely not my, that is definitely my wife’s bag.
Jules:
I don’t know. You are like fashionist though, with that one. Where are we getting, I don’t like that bag. They’re both feminine looking. So you guys don’t want to talk about purses anymore? You want to switch a subject to food?
Neil Glazier:
Yeah. Where do you want to go? Where are we going?
Jules:
Where are we going? What are we doing?
Matthew Maschler:
