first_img6256 Spyglass Hill, Hope Island. 6256 Spyglass Hill, Hope Island.The allure of 6256 Spyglass Hill lies in its unassuming presence, tucked away in a gated estate where 24-hour water and land security patrols are conducted in electric-powered vehicles so as not to disturb sleeping residents.The former owners embarked on a $3 million upgrade of the property five years ago which incorporated earth, water, air and fire elements.Among the luxury features is a rosewood front door, dark green natural onyx in both kitchens, a stone wall in the main living area, two separate staircases and soaring ceilings. It’s all in the detail.A pavilion overlooks the pool and is surrounded by decking.On the opposite side of the pool, a patio room connects to the chef’s kitchen but includes its own Electrolux barbecue, a wet bar, wine fridge and dishwasher.

Fulham back in EPL after Bryan’s extra time double in playoff final

first_imgFulham made an immediate return to the English Premier League as two extra time goals from full-back Joe Bryan gave them a 2-1 win over Brentford on Tuesday.The win was in the English Championship playoff final match at Wembley Stadium. Bryan opened the scoring near the end of the first period of extra time.He spotted Brentford goalkeeper David Raya out of position and anticipating a cross from his deep free-kick, and he cleverly drove the ball into the bottom corner.The Spanish goalkeeper was slow to react, once Bryan had opted to shoot.But the lead was a deserved one for Scott Parker’s side, who had the better of what had been a cagey 90 minutes.Bryan made sure of the victory with a second goal three minutes from the end of the second period of extra time. He clipped home from close range after a burst forward down the left and a quick exchange with substitute Aleksandar Mitrovic.Henrik Dalsgaard pulled a goal back for Brentford in the final seconds.But there was no time for a recovery by the Bees, who were searching for a place in the top flight for the first time since 1947.“I’m not the hero,” said Bryan, as his team mates celebrated their swift return back to the Premier League a year after relegation.It was an achievement worth around 135 million pounds ($176.34 million) over three years for the west London club. Bryan added: “Every single one of them boys, players, staff, supporters, everything’s been with us all season. It’s been absolutely unbelievable.“We’ve been written off, five, six, seven, eight, nine, 10 times. I think I even read somewhere that we were supposed to be scared of them.”But we took it to them and we scored twice, even though they made it hard for us.”Reuters/NAN.RelatedPosts Leeds record first Premier League win in seven-goal thriller Onomah agrees Fulham contract extension Super Eagles’ Aina joins Fulham on season-long loan Tags: BrentfordDavid rayaFulhamJoe Bryanlast_img read more
