Owners Enjoy Entrée to the World’s Largest Luxury Exchange Program, Including “Early Privileges” as They Await the Keys to Historic Private Residence Club
EUREKA SPRINGS, AR (Jan. 30, 2013) — As they steward the historic Queen Anne Mansion into a new era as a private residence club, Steve and Lata Lovell have announced an exceptional new benefit of owning in this magnificently restored 1891 manor, which presides over the entrance to the flourishing resort town of Eureka Springs, Ark. The Registry Collection, the world’s largest luxury exchange program, has accepted The Queen Anne Mansion into its prestigious ranks, extending membership privileges to its owners in an extraordinary worldwide portfolio of affiliated resort properties.
In addition, acceptance into The Registry Collection’s Early Privileges Program means that, from the moment they sign their purchase contract, Queen Anne owners can begin enjoying luxury stays at the approximately 200 exclusive resorts in the program’s global network, even as they await the keys to the Mansion. The first-ever private residence club created to preserve a historic home, The Queen Anne Mansion Preservation Trust released its first 12 ownership interests in November 2012 at an introductory price of $150,000 per interest. A threshold to closing of 24 deposits has been established, at which point each of the owners can begin using the property.
Membership to The Registry Collection expands the Queen Anne Mansion ownership experience to the most sought-after destinations on five continents. In the U.S., these include such popular locations as New York City, Hawaii, San Francisco, Colorado and Vermont. Worldwide destinations range from Bahia, Brazil to Zimbali, South Africa; from Tuscany, Italy to Aberdeen, Scotland; and from Jumeirah Beach, Dubai to Wongamat Beach, Thailand.
Owners will also benefit from The Registry Collection’s around-the-clock concierge services, which they can access as often as desired while on vacation or from the comfort of home. Among the endless possibilities: procuring tickets to sold-out events, reserving tee times or private jet charters, and arranging party planning and pet care. Access to these exceptional services begins immediately upon signing.
An innovative business model, the non-profit Queen Anne Mansion Preservation Trust, a Private Residence Club, was established to ensure the long-term viability of the magnificent, 12,000-square-foot Mansion and its valuable contents while making it available to those who appreciate the unique lifestyle it affords. Appealing to those with a passion for turn-of-the-century architecture and antiques, the amenity-rich experience of owning at the 1891 Mansion recaptures the gentility, graciousness and civility that is lacking from daily life in the 21st century. Each owner is entitled to reserve a minimum of 28 nights of annual usage.
