This is land like no other

Awaiting you inside the gates, The Preserve Club & Residence offers all that nature provider with endless opportunities for sporting enthusiasts.

3500 rolling, wooded acres of open space easily removes you from a busy life to privacy and luxury where centuries old dry stacked stone walls stand as evidence of man’s toils to till and plant, to imagine and create. That  mission continues today.

Set alongside the busy I-95 corridor is this private place that few Rhode Islanders know exists. Located just 25 minutes from Providence, an hour from Boston, and 2.5 hours from NYC, The Preserve is a draw for many out-of-state member owners that now happily call Rhode Island their home. With a sprawling campus of unspoiled landscapes, The Preserve is also a natural sanctuary where celebrities, CEOs, families, and sports figures find privacy and security and a sense of serenity.

With a growing residential community at the Preserve, Developer Paul Mihailides, a sportsman and Rhode Island resident, is elevating Rhode Island real estate to another level, setting sales records monthly and creating value for Preserve member residents. Paul Mihailides describes, “close to highways, rail, and sea, with every amenity available including the most efficient airport, beautiful beaches, fishing seaports, restaurants, services for food, medical, shopping, and all the adventure New England has to offer.”

Private residences available at the Preserve include eleven new Elegant Townhomes offering gourmet kitchens, vaulted ceilings, in-home elevators, and integrated garages. Red cedar trimmed two, three- and four-bedroom custom homes are built with wide plank wood floors, first floor master suites, and stone fireplaces. The stunning Hilltop Lodge has 19 luxurious, one-level condominiums, where nothing is overlooked, except the horizon out your windows.

Everything begins with thoughtful excavation and finishes with your custom details. Selecting your special home now means pre-construction pricing and time to build your dreams into the quintessential base camp afforded by membership. World-class championship golf on a gorgeous course designed by award-winning golf architect, Robert McNeil expands across long stretches of hills and bends for ponds of rainbow trout.

Mornings climbing rock walls, fly-fishing, or soaring on a zip line is followed by relaxing in a hobbit hillside home magically carved into the earth, on the deck of a yurt or a tall tree house, all with concierge service. As winter eases off the calendar, clay tennis, croquet and paddle courts will return to life, surrounding a new spa facility with its handsome pool house.

Some fifty miles of trails for cross country skiing are losing their white blanket, opening the way for warm days of hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, riding ATV’s and hours of stargazing. The groomed green Scotch plaid of a 10,000 square foot putting green and bocce court sit above the country’s longest indoor shooting range.

“Our entire family are proud owners at The Preserve. Golf, fishing, shooting sports, snowmobiles, and some awesome food. Lodge was super cozy, and the staff is top notch. By far the finest Range and Sporting Shoppe hands down!”
Adam Vinatieri, NFL’s All Time Points Leader

Shooters are surrounded with unsurpassed choices including an indoor range renowned as America’s longest, and a newly expanded and challenging world-class sporting clays course with post and beam covered decks.

Five stands, and archery ranges border tall sorghum fields where pheasants hide and the newest amenity, the members’ Lookout Lodge where overhead porch heaters assure comfort while you improve your clay shooting skills with over 250 different shot presentations.

All is complemented by The Sporting Shoppe, outfitted for your outdoor needs. Silenced by forests, Route 95 is just minutes to the West. An easy drive east on Route 138 takes you to colonial Kingston and its high-speed rails, the finest beaches in our 400 miles of shoreline, Newport mansions, Cliff Walk, fishing, sailing and dining.

Members are just minutes from walking edges of salt pond, riding waves or paddling kayaks. Block Island, treasured for its open beaches, fishing tour naments and fine dining is a ferry ride away; closer by charter boat to the storied fishing grounds. New England has so much to offer; The Preserve Club & Residences is the heart of all your adventures and dreams, and it all starts with your new home. For more information visit ThePreserveRI.com

For owner of Preserve, dream becomes reality with opening of store, shooting range

For owner of Preserve, dream becomes reality with opening of store, shooting range

By Cynthia Drummond

Sun staff writer

RICHMOND — Before Friday’s ribbon-cutting to officially open his indoor shooting range and “Sporting Shoppe,” Paul Mihalides, owner of the Preserve at Boulder Hills, stood on the staircase looking down at the assembled guests and admitted that he was a bit choked up.

“Im a little emotional today, because my family’s worked so far to achieve such a great goal. My dream has become a reality,” he said.

Mihailides’ dream began in 2013 when he bought the property and began making extensive upgrades, transforming the formerly neglected Boulder Hills golf course into an all-inclusive, members-only sporting club.

The facility, on Kingstown Road, has continued to grow. In addition to an 18-hole golf course, the Preserve now features private residences, a clubhouse and several outbuildings. It employs about 200 people.

There’s much more to come. Expansion plans include a five-story hotel, which has already received approval from the town, a residential and commercial complex of 186 single-family and multifamily units, a convenience store with a gas station, a day care, a health club and gym, an equestrian center, two more clubhouses, and a helicopter landing pad. When  construction is complete, the Preserve will occupy 750 acres.

While some residents, particularly nearby property owners, have objected to the project, efforts to delay it have subsided of late. The leader of an opposition group did not respond to a telephone message.

The Preserve has the unequivocal backing of the Town Council, and three councilors took part in the ribbon-cutting. One of the council’s top priorities has been attracting new businesses to the town, and council President Paul Michaud said the Preserve was an example of the type of development Richmond needs.

“I think this probably is going to be one of the biggest developments this town has ever seen,” he said. “I know some people aren’t that crazy about it, but I think it’s basically a business where it’s not going to have an impact on our school system…It’s going to bring in needed taxes for the town of Richmond.”

Council Vice President Mark Trimmer and councilor Gary Wright also welcomed the expansion.

“I think it’s an excellent, quality, top-notch project,” Trimmer said. “It’s a tremendous boost to the town and it’s an awesome alternative to a shopping mall or another housing development.”

Wright, who wants to improve the appearance of Richmond’s commercial center, said the Preserve was what the town needed.

“The welcome mat is out for businesses like this,” Wright said. “We need the businesses, we need the tax revenue. My big point this year is beautification, and they’re making it look nice, this part of town.”

The Sporting Shoppe and adjacent shooting range, which, Mihailides is fond of pointing out, is the largest indoor range in the country, will open to the public on Saturday.

“My family and our professionals have worked so hard to achieve such a great goal in such a short period of time,” he said. “This is an extraordinary task. We started in November, we got it completed in July. It’s a 50,000-square foot structure. Just the construction alone should have taken a year. Not only did we finish the construction in less than a year, but we opened.”

When the expansion is complete, the Preserve is expected to employ several hundred people. Lt. Gov. Dan McKee cited the development’s economic benefits to the region.

“I toured here before it was built and I heard their vision and not only will it help people enjoy the outdoors and the different activities that are here in Rhode Island, but it’s going to attract people from outside the state,” he said. “It’s going to attract some pretty good economics for the state of Rhode Island. It’s an unbelievable facility.”

New York Lifestyles – Grand Opening

New York Lifestyles – Grand Opening

New York Lifestyles Magazine – November 2018 Issue, popular with readers as a source for luxury lifestyle and real estate information, featured the new Range and Sporting Shoppe at The Preserve in the November 2018 Issue in the article; The Preserve Club & Residences Celebrates new Range and Lodge, by AP Connolly.

The Preserve Club & Residences in Richmond, Rhode Island, the Northeast’s finest four-season sporting club and community, has garnered a national reputation as “3,500 acres of adventure, exclusivity, and serenity.”

On the strength of that accomplishment, I couldn’t resist the chance to experience Preserve Chairman Paul Mihailides’ latest triumphs, The Sporting Shoppe and The Range at The Preserve, at their recent two-day Grand Opening Event.

To say I was not disappointed would be an understatement. Located in an impressive new 50,000 square foot lodge, the stunning, two-story Sporting Shoppe has been created in the tradition of history’s legendary expedition outfitters.

Step inside, become immersed in an artistically conceived, panoramic display of some of the world’s most coveted bespoke long guns, and realize that indeed you’ve entered the “everything outdoor superstore.”

SO MUCH MORE!

Sporting enthusiasts will find the most extensive inventory and lowest prices on guns and ammo, plus kayaks, canoes, fishing gear, crossbows, gentleman’s and utility knives, and the best brands for hiking, camping, and hunting equipment and supplies.

On display are all-season sporting clothing and even formalwear and cigars. Also available is the Sporting Shoppe Outfitting Program that provides direct access to the best hunting and fishing guides from across the globe.

In the same building as The Sporting Shoppe is The Range, America’s longest indoor range with 150-yard lanes! The universal reaction I witnessed at the grand opening, to the first view down a lane the length of a football field-and-a-half, is gape-mouthed astonishment—followed almost immediately by a widening smile and the irresistible urge to meet the challenge.

All shooting bays boast soundproofing- and reverberation-suppressing technology, and are adorned with custom wood paneling.

The shooting bays are also equipped with a mounted target programming touch screen designed by Meggitt wireless target retrieval systems.

THE ULTIMATE EXPERIENCE

Shooting enthusiasts can also challenge themselves with 3D Archery, and Golf Simulation and Firearms Training Simulation (FATS®) rooms.

There are no caliber restrictions. Also, handsomely appointed Ram and Fox Den members’ lounges, a reach-in humidor, lockers and gun-safes, a stunning two-story stone focal wall, and full heat and air-conditioning systems further ensure that luxury and adventure can magnificently co-exist. The Range at The Preserve is genuinely the ultimate shooting experience.

The Sporting Shoppe and The Range at The Preserve

Both days saw endless lines of sporting enthusiasts taking advantage of massive Grand Opening specials. Many won spectacular prizes, including hunting gear valued thousands of dollars.

One lucky customer won the coveted, one-year Range Marksman Membership! And more than a few Grand Opening attendees signed up for classes at The Preserve Academy that offers firearm safety courses taught by certified professional instructors for all skill levels.

The Sporting Shoppe is open to the public seven days a week. Multiple levels of Range memberships are available at the current limited time introductory membership pricing, with higher level memberships providing access to many of The Preserve’s amenities including sporting clays, tennis, pool and cabana, and Members’ Lodge dining.

A SPORTING PARADISE

Located 2.5 hours from NYC, 1 hour from Boston, and just one mile off Interstate 95 at Exit 3A, The Preserve Club and Residences has already drawn scores of New Yorkers to its indelibly beautiful and exciting experiences. Hemingway famously called Paris “a moveable feast.”

I submit that The Preserve is a natural feast served with elegance, absorbed for a lifetime.

Additional adventures found at The Preserve across its 3,500 acres include quintessential upland hunting, zip lining, rock climbing, hiking, mountain biking, championship golf, stocked fishing ponds, world-class sporting clays, ATVs, snowmobiling, equestrian experiences and more.

Private residences are available for purchase for those seeking a wilderness dream home complete with full concierge service. Homes include Signature Residences, Townhomes on The Green, and the Hilltop Lodge Condominiums, offering one-level and multi-level living. Options include private in-home elevators.

Where are these homes and amenities? Luxurious. Just ask Karen, a former Bostonian. Now living at the preserve Aaron, but I mean we’re standing in the middle of the ones here at the preserve. So you’re living here as a resident. Tell us about that. I love living here.

We have three stock fishing funds, tennis, golf course rock climb. There’s a beautiful rock climbing wall hike, beautifully furnished tenants with mosquito nets. Uh, the pool will be open in August. It really is unlimited.

I spend more time with my boys then I ever would have imagined they wanted to be with me and outside all the time. That is really, we ATV snowmobile.

So it’s four seasons. Uh, there’s always instruction and safety. So my boys are learning so much respect for guns and respect for the wilderness. It’s really outrageous.

And then we’re five minutes from 95 so I can go back to Boston as needed for any fans of what are the ring? This is a hobbit house. Glamping. Hobbit style is just one of the many things for members to do.

There’s also wildlife sports of hunting and cliche pheasant shoots that they do and people come in from all over the country.

I had no idea the sporting world that even existed, the adventures 10 you with fun activities to see great use of the outdoors.

So much to do. So much to experience and available to the public. Seven days a week is the preserve sporting shop plus downstairs is home to America’s longest automated underground shooting range with 150 yard lanes.
