Point’s tree-lined streets and quiet neighborhoods now disguise its
former status as a social hub during the early 20th century when a
popular golf club attracted socialites to the area. Though golf ended
in the 1930s, reminders of the country club remain, such as the beach
house, swimming pool and tennis courts.
David and Jane
Frank are carrying on the social traditions of the country club as
their property includes the club’s swimming pool and tennis courts.
"When we were first looking at homes and stumbled upon this
midcentury ranch, we were immediately sold on the many features that
would allow for entertaining, or should I say throwing really big
parties," Jane Frank says.
swimming pool — designed by well-known architect Fitzhugh Scott —
was remodeled by a previous owner, Frank says, and the high dive and
low dive were removed.
With a blended
family of seven children, the Franks have thrown parties for Little
League, prom, graduations, engagements, birthdays and more. The pool
area easily accommodates 75, Frank says. In addition to the pool,
there are two full baths with showers outside, part of the home’s
original 1950 design.
