STRATEGY FOR SUCCESS

A strategy for success Professional property marketing on a local, regional, national and international level.

F

ine & Country understands moving home is one of the most important decisions you can make; your home is both a financial and emotional investment. Fine & Country takes the instruction to sell your home as a privilege, an honour and as a very serious commitment to you. Through excellent marketing, we deliver an efficient sales process and a courteous, careful service. The more expensive property demands a more extensive presentation in order to enhance the character of the property, the location, the area, the facilities and the lifestyle – for all prospective buyers. The widespread exposure of your property is crucial. In today’s market not only is the mobility of buyers greater than ever, but also the ways in which they may access information. Your prospective buyer could come from, quite literally, anywhere - through local and regional marketing, through national newspapers and magazines or, increasingly, internationally using the interactive technologies such as the internet, touchscreens and mobile phones. Instruct Fine & Country and you could benefit from our knowledge, experience, expertise and contacts and our well trained, educated and courteous staff. You are assisted, advised and informed through each stage of the whole transaction.

“Sophisticated, intelligent and creative marketing that provides the type of information buyers would never normally see – it is a case of presenting and promoting your property as if it were our own.”

> New office in Cologne, Germany Opening its doors in January this year, Fine & Country Cologne is the latest office to join the brand in Germany. With its international character and cultural diversity, along with the beauty of the landscape surrounding the area, Cologne is the perfect place to open an office. Wolfgang Hassel, General Manager, says, “Cologne is highly sought after, which has resulted in rising property prices. The average price per square metre is about 4,200€, but customers are willing to pay more. Detached single-family houses usually get sold at a price of about 600,000€. The most expensive detached single-family house was sold in Müngersdorf and Hahnwald for around 1,800,000€. Approximately 45% of owner occupiers are looking for condominiums, with the average price per square metre for new buildings being around 5,000€. “We have great hopes for Fine & Country Cologne and are looking forward to helping many customers with their property needs.” For more information about property in Cologne, email hassel@fineandcountry.cologne or call +49 (0)221 96 43 706.

> Property designed by architect and agent airs on TV Marcus Browne wears two hats: he is a sales representative for Fine & Country Perth, as well as a talented architect, two professions he says goes hand in hand. Marcus became a sales representative through his contact with Amy and Vivek Gohil from Fine & Country Perth, recent migrants from the UK, who contacted him as an architect to design a getaway retreat for them in the Margaret River Wine Region. Soon after, they contacted him to see if he would be interested in working with Fine & Country.

> No need to travel for your first viewing While many countries have given the property market the go-ahead to resume, it is clear that it will not be business as usual and virtual viewings will be key. Our digital viewing platforms allow potential buyers to visit properties from the comfort of your own home, wherever the properties are. Using digital tools mean buyers can narrow down their choices and organise visits when it truly matters. Should you want to sell your property, we can also carry out remote valuation appointments, ensuring you have a professional market appraisal of your property in a safe environment. For more information on virtual market appraisals, please contact your local Fine & Country office.

Recently, Marcus was approached by the Australia By Design TV show to feature one of his architectural creations, Vodka Palace. Hidden in the affluent coastal suburb of Cottesloe in Perth, Western Australia, the property is a luxurious concrete cave tempered with natural timber finishes and primed for premium culinary, audio and visual pleasure. It is the result of a strong collaborative process between client, architect and builder. The property was designed for one of Marcus’s close friends, who he describes as a unique paradoxical individual, one part reclusive and one part party queen. She desired the seclusion and ethereal quality of a cave to escape into, yet at the same time, the ability to invite the world in and entertain guests, friends and family in style at a moment’s notice. For information about this beautiful home or more of Marcus’s creations, email marcus.browne@fineandcountry.com or visit fineandcountry.com/au/perth

TRAVEL

T

here is a seismic shift in progress across the globe in the wake of COVID-19. Megacities are fast losing their appeal for both residents and visitors. Space, gardens and access to the great outdoors have moved up in the list of desirable features, whether it’s for living or leisure. While beaches remain popular travel drawcards, smaller centres and areas with natural beauty are increasing in allure. The Cotswolds, then, will soon be booming. It’s more than half a century since the Cotswolds was declared an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). This undeniably pretty pocket of rural England covers a surprisingly large area – almost 800 square miles – and runs through five counties: Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Wiltshire and Worcestershire. From quintessentially British bucolic villages to stately homes, rolling hills and sweeping meadows, there is plenty to explore here. Cheltenham makes a fine base for venturing into the Cotswolds. This attractive Gloucestershire town has been welcoming visitors for almost 300 years, since the discovery of the first natural spring in 1716. You can still taste the spa waters at the Grade I Listed Pittville Pump Room. Horse-racing enthusiasts flock to the town for the well-known Cheltenham Festival in March, but there’s more to it than a day at the races. Driving through the Regency spa town’s leafy, green streets, past painted stucco façades and intricate ironwork balconies, we spy several of the town’s highlights, including the neo-Gothic school buildings of Cheltenham College and the Ladies’ College, built in the French‑Gothic

style with a remarkable bronze dome. We motor past Sandford Park with its 1930s open-air lido, catch a glimpse of The Neptune Fountain on the Promenade and plan a visit to the 14th-century Cheltenham Minster, St Mary’s, the oldest building in Cheltenham. The Bradley Hotel is our base for the weekend – built around 1845, it is one of the most important complete historical Regency houses in Cheltenham. It boasts a wonderful collection of antiques, but as a De Savary family property, it also blends history with modernity in inimitable style. There’s a guest lounge on the ground floor that looks like it has been lifted from a stately home – it’s packed with antiquities and quirky touches, such as bowls of sweets, a chess table and interesting reads. It’s the perfect welcome to this intriguing town. Each of the ten rooms at The Bradley Hotel is different. We are in a Superior Room on the top floor, which is dominated by a fabulous mahogany four-poster bed, draped in silk and jacquard. Two deep-red leather chairs sit by a coffee table. On the table, there is a carafe with a measure of sloe gin and a sign that reads ‘Drink me’. It would be rude not to oblige. The Bradley Hotel is perfectly positioned in the centre of town. It’s on a quiet street, yet minutes from the thriving restaurant scene in Montpelier. Boutique stores rub shoulders with trendy cafés and eateries here, with Montpelier Walk overlooked by Grecian-style caryatids – sculpted female figures serving as architectural support. It’s a pleasant place to wander and dine. Cheltenham is the gateway to the Cotswolds and there’s a simple pleasure in driving along tree-lined country  ➤➤

roads, through villages populated with homes made of local honey-coloured limestone. The most difficult choice here is which postcard-perfect place to explore first. On a whim, we find ourselves heading to Bourton-on-the-Water, just under 16 miles from Cheltenham. This quaint settlement is regularly voted one of the prettiest villages in England. Shops and cafés line the lovely main street, which is fringed by a stream, criss-crossed with low stone bridges. Young children and dogs splash in the shallow water, while parents and owners watch on, sipping their lattes on the riverbank. The Cotswold Motor Museum, Birdland, The Cotswold Brewery and The Model Village provide entertainment for those passing through, many of whom, like us, find themselves dallying here for longer than expected. Four miles further north, Stow-on-the-Wold is another popular spot. This market town sits on top of an 800‑foot hill, making it the highest of the Cotswold towns. It is located at the junction of several main roads through the Cotswolds, including the Fosse Way, which is of Roman origin. The Market Square testifies to the town’s importance in times gone by. Other attractions include England’s oldest inn, the old stocks, St Edward’s Church and the tombstone of Captain Hastings Keyte, who died at the battle of Stow. Not far from the town centre are the old wells in Well Lane, where the ramparts of an Iron Age fort are visible.

On the eastern side of the AONB, just over 20 miles from Cheltenham, Burford in north Oxfordshire is considered to be the southern gateway to the Cotswolds. A beautiful old Cotswold town, its High Street slopes from the high Wolds, down to the willow-fringed River Windrush, where swans and ducks frolic. A lovely three-arched medieval bridge crosses the river at the foot of the hill. Wherever you choose to pause in the Cotswolds, whether it’s Bibury, Chipping Campden or Moreton-in-Marsh, you’ll find an appealing slice of rural life. We may not yet know what life after COVID-19 looks like, but I hope it’s dressed in Cotswold stone. n

INTERIOR STYLE

Showstoppers

Looking for a focal piece to direct attention within a room? Here are our picks of showstopping gorgeous décor items.

Lorena Armchair – Galiatea

This mid-century-inspired chair stands as the perfect accent armchair in a living room or bedroom. Unlike other chairs coated in more-common sheepskin, this collection is covered with soft alpaca hides, which are ethically sourced – no animal is killed to provide the fur; they are a byproduct of the animals’ natural living conditions. The Lorena Armchair is priced at $3,650. For a 15% discount, use the promo code: LAUNCH2020. See galiatea.com for details.

▼ Arcadia Centre Table – HOMMÉS Studio This 50s-inspired piece is a combination of low, brass tables with inlaid tops. Each tabletop is different. The largest is a black and white striped minimalist roulette made of printed glass with a Terrazzo marble effect. The second is made of printed glass with a black Terrazzo marble effect. The third is in black mirror and, finally, the smallest has a soft black leather top. The Arcadia Centre Table is £3,980. See hommes.studio

▲ Ornithological Sketch Cabinet – Young & Battaglia A collaboration between Mineheart and fantasy illustrator Courtney Brims created this wood‑veneered cabinet, etched with an intricate design. Courtney is inspired by the natural world and in this, birds, butterflies and moths alight on a bejewelled cage with inlaid crystals, making it reminiscent of a regal crown. The piece can be used as a cocktail cabinet or as glamorous office storage. The Ornithological Sketch Cabinet retails for £3,260. See mineheart.com 12 FINEANDCOUNTRY.COM

INTERIOR STYLE

▼ Flora – Nani Marquina The new rug collection from Spanish designer Nani Marquina, called Flora, features three designs: Backyard, Promenade and Bloom. Each Flora style represents a different part of the life cycle of a flower, depicted in a different setting. We love Backyard, a faithful representation of one of Barcelona/New York-based artist Santi Moix’s original artworks. Its name refers to the natural space behind a house, where flora is always wilder and more haphazard. Flora is available in three sizes. Backyard is priced from £2,960. See gomodern.co.uk

▲ Spiral cellars – Spiral Cellars

Neocube-o – Neolith

Neolith is a market-leading brand of Sintered Stone, an all‑natural man‑made material that mimics the look of stone, but is more durable, scratch‑proof, stain‑proof, weather and waterproof. Neolith recently announced a collaboration with premium fireplace manufacturer CB stone-tec, to produce the Neocube-o. This chic outdoor fireplace combines high‑quality gas‑firing technology in stainless steel and Schott glass with an elegant, Neolith‑clad base. The Neocube-o is POA. See neolith.com for details.

Spiral Cellars is a wine storage specialist that designs, crafts and installs a range of cellaring options in the UK and across the globe. The range goes from underground wine cellars to hand-crafted wine rooms, statement wine walls and elegant freestanding wine cabinets. The spiral cellars are definite showstoppers. They can be installed in less than nine days, are naturally ventilated and store up to 1,900 bottles. Spiral Cellars are priced from £24,400 to £70,000. See spiralcellars.co.uk

▲ Ostrich Feather Floor Lamp – A Modern Grand Tour This majestic floor light certainly catches the eye. The transcendent brass-based design creates an inviting light through the ostrich feather foliage. The feathers are sourced ethically and are a byproduct of the food and leather industry, with the plumes hand-dyed in a range of colours. The Ostrich Feather Floor Lamp is £4,900. See sweetpeaandwillow.com

Circus Table – Bonaldo

Bonaldo’s fabulous 2020 Collection is here and it encompasses things of beauty. The Circus Table designed by Fabrice Berrux is just one example. Circus draws on the laws of physics for its geometric shapes, with an impressive spherical base surmounted by a large disc-shaped top. The tabletop is available in solid wood, ceramic or marble. Finishes for the base include pearl gold, platinum and clouded chrome. The Circus Table is priced from £3,710. See gomodern.co.uk

ith the on and off nature of pandemic-induced restrictions, European Tour Destinations recognises it is important that you are able to enjoy this great sport in a safe environment. Individual properties have responded to the ‘new normal’ to ensure they meet requirements for the safety of golfers and visitors. Protocols vary according to country requirements, and are liable to change; however, at the forefront is maintaining the health of patrons. In France, Terre Blanche has undertaken extensive staff training in the new protocols that have been instituted. Physical distancing is at the forefront, with limited numbers accessing the on-site pool, restaurants and spa. Increased cleaning schedules are in place, with hand sanitiser available in public areas. Plexiglass protection has been installed between the rows of seats on the carts and shuttles, with contact surfaces being disinfected after each use. Quinta do Lago in the Algarve region of Portugal has used the enforced lockdown to undertake preparations for the reopening of the property. Both the North and Laranjal Golf Courses are now open, along with the Laranjal Clubhouse, Driving Ranges, and the Academy. The courses have had their annual aeration maintenance early, to ensure they are in pristine condition for the remainder of the year. The South Course is currently undergoing a €7 million upgrade and will reopen in September. Like other European Tour destinations, Quinta do Lago has implemented new procedures that meet government requirements and ensure the safety of patrons. They have received the Clean & Safe recognition from Turismo de Portugal and are now following a staged reopening plan. PGA Catalunya Resort, home of Spain’s leading course, has also implemented strict hygiene protocols and guidelines, ensuring the safety and wellbeing of patrons. As with other destinations, there is a strict regime in place for disinfecting facilities and equipment, with particular attention paid to touch points. As an added precaution, temperature checks are carried out at the entrance to the resort. ➤➤ Main: The 5th hole of the Jack Nicklaus-designed Heritage Course at London Golf Club. FINEANDCOUNTRY.COM

On the golf course, group numbers are restricted and players are urged to play ‘ready golf’ that is, play as soon as you are ready, so as not to hold up the group behind you as they are not able to play until you have left the next tee. Flagsticks must not be touched and balls must be retrieved from holes by handling the balls only. Rakes have been removed from the bunkers, so players are asked to smooth them as best they can, using their clubs or feet. Golfers are now able to enjoy all that Verdura Resort, on the southwest coast of Sicily, has to offer including accommodation at the award-winning Rocco Forte Hotel, which reopened on June 26th. Rocco Forte Hotels has consulted experts and developed their own policies, which exceed the internationally accepted standards. All staff members undergo temperature checks on arrival each day and wear protective masks and gloves when performing their duties. All luggage arriving at the hotel is safely and professionally sanitised before being delivered to the rooms, which are meticulously cleaned and sealed when guests depart. Masks, disposable gloves and hand sanitiser are available in all guest bedrooms. While dining options are open, a special room service menu has been devised for those who feel more comfortable dining in their rooms.

London Golf Club is similarly committed to providing a safe golfing environment. The Club is requesting that all purchases are made with a debit or credit card. The Clubhouse, lockers and showers remain closed, so there are no areas available for socialising when you have finished playing. A takeaway food and beverage service is available, but purchases are for consumption on the course only. The practice area is available and can be used for warm-up purposes before play. In further exciting news for lovers of golf, European Tour has announced a new initiative to launch the re-shaped 2020 tournament season. The first six events being played in the UK across July and August herald a new Golf for Good initiative, aiming to support three key areas. First is support for the communities where the European Tour plays, second is rewarding the often-forgotten frontline workers, and the final area is promoting the many health benefits golf offers. £500,000 from the European Tour will be distributed equally between charities local to the tournament venues and charities selected by the leading ten players in a mini Order of Merit run across these initial events. ■

f you’ve ever dreamt of relocating to Spain, Javea is the place you have been dreaming of, with 320 days of sunshine. Javea is a small, historic town, free of high-rise buildings, situated between San Antonio and La Nao points. Mount Montgó overlooks the town like a protective sibling, and the clean, warm, dazzlingly blue Mediterranean Sea laps the beautiful beaches and coves the area has to offer. With landscapes ranging from sandy coastlines to rugged mountain areas, a mild climate year‑round, careful planning policies and extensive tourist facilities, Javea is a jewel on the Costa Blanca, combining natural beauty with modern facilities and the charm of an ancient fishing village. Javea’s old town is steeped in history and it’s evident in the architecture, with its Tosca stone porticoes, Gothic bay windows, wrought-iron window bars and balcony railings. The church of San Bartolemé in the town centre is an example of late gothic architecture and the ‘Soler Blasco’ Archaeological Museum close by in the narrow streets offers a wealth of information about Iberian history. Dominating the fishing port is the modern silhouette of the church of Nuestra Señora de Loreto, with its roof depicting a ship’s hull. The covered indoor market sells fresh local produce: fruit, vegetables, meat and fish brought up from the port daily. The importance of the town’s maritime activities is apparent in the port area. Known as Aduanas de Mar, it boasts a lovely promenade and a selection of superb seafood restaurants where you can enjoy the catch of the day. The fishing harbour is situated next to a marina with yachts bobbing in the breeze; it’s a lovely area for a morning or evening stroll. Pavement cafés and bars overlooking the Mediterranean invite you to sit, relax and enjoy the ambience of the port. Outside the town, following the road to the San Antonio cape, architectural sites include the monastery of Nuestra Señora de los Angeles, a series of small hermitages clutching the slopes of the mountain and ancient windmills dotted across the landscape. It’s hard to believe this is only 1 hour and 30 minutes’ drive from Alicante towards the northeastern tip of the Costa Blanca. There are also a number of sports clubs and associations in the area, where you can enjoy a game of tennis, hop on a horse or go shooting. Just outside the town, surrounded by pines and orange groves, the Javea Golf Club offers a pleasant setting for golf enthusiasts. There are several other golf courses within easy access, too. ➤➤

URBAN RETREAT

F

ranschhoek in South Africa, just under an hour’s drive from Cape Town, is a traditional vineyard town in the Western Cape province and a haven for food and wine enthusiasts. Richard Branson is fond enough of the area that he purchased Mont Rochelle, a stunning 26-bedroom hotel and vineyard, to join the exclusive Virgin Limited Edition collection, which includes Necker Island and Moskito Island in the British Virgin Islands, Kasbah Tamadot in Morocco, Mahali Mzuri in Kenya, The Lodge in Verbier, Son Bunyola in Mallorca and Ulusaba Private Game Reserve in South Africa. The grounds at Mont Rochelle cover 39 hectares, so a favourite activity for guests is picnicking on the estate. There are also two restaurants, a cosy bar, a spa, a gym and a heated outdoor pool, not to mention the 37-hectare vineyard and wine cellar. Along with light and airy accommodation in the main hotel, the Manor House is Mont Rochelle’s private residence, complete with two swimming pools, four suites and a cosy bunkroom. The Manor House is available for exclusive use and boasts stunning views that stretch to the mountains. montrochelle.virgin.com

INTERIOR DESIGN SCENE

A stylish workspace Working from home can be challenging, especially with the additional stresses lockdown has introduced. Fine & Country Property Staging offers styling tips to transform your workspace into an organised, productive environment.

T

he idea of being confined to the dining table, surrounded by books and papers, is not a welcoming concept. You need to have space to work, make calls and use your computer without the need to tidy everything away to eat dinner or help your children with schoolwork. With productivity in mind, here are five key tips to make the most of the space you have. A suitable desk A good desk is a sound investment. Choose one with large drawers to store paperwork or to pack your equipment or laptop into after a long day. This gives you the best chance to stay organised and allows you to leave the room tidy when your workday is over. Consider it a clean desk policy. On the design side, the industrial aesthetic works really well for a home office and will likely complement other furniture if your office is in part of an existing living space. Sitting comfortably The chair you use is extremely important, as it can affect your posture, breathing, fatigue, and as a result, your productivity. Some modern offices opt for exercise balls – not to exercise with, but to help with posture. If this does not appeal to you, choose a chair with a high back and ultra‑comfort; avoid perching on a dining or kitchen chair. You will be sitting here for the majority of your day, so choose wisely. Remember, you do not have to sacrifice style for comfort; chic yet comfortable options are easier to find than you may think. Lighting Maintain good lighting and add table lamps if your room does not have sufficient natural light. Position your desk near to a window if you can, so you can enjoy gazing out at nature in between working through your tasks. A connection with nature has been proven to benefit mental health, which is essential in such unusual times, especially if you are not used to working remotely.

INTERIOR DESIGN SCENE

Colour scheme We recommend keeping the dÊcor light and airy, using neutral tones and white on the walls. This leaves room for flexibility in the design of the space and you can accessorise with bursts of colour throughout the area, while avoiding distraction. Certain colours are known to alter your mood, so this is worth keeping in mind when considering your colour scheme. Aquatic colours like blues and greens are known to boost productivity as they create a sense of balance. Blue in particular is thought to lower the heart rate and blood pressure. As a rule of thumb, pastel tones induce a tranquil atmosphere, while yellow is reminiscent of sunshine and promotes happiness. Avoiding loud or brash tones will likely keep your stress levels to a minimum. Office accessories Artwork, pictures and plants make the room feel less clinical. Statement art pieces work well or you could introduce images of your favourite holiday destinations or photographs of your loved ones. Include varying textures through rugs and cushions, arrange your bookcase in colour order and add accessories to shelves to inject some personality and a sense of style into the space. n At Fine and Country Property Staging, we can help you to achieve the most from your office space.

“I

t was the stunning view over the city lights and across the treetops which first attracted us to the block on which we built this home,” say the current owners of this airy property in the Darlington area of Perth. “We could immediately see ourselves living here.” In this unique and innovative house, on a street of standout properties, use of natural materials such as wood and stone in combination with concrete creates a contemporary feeling, with a balance between spacious rooms and surprises around corners to more intimate spaces. “The house itself is arranged to be amenable to everyday family life and entertaining alike,” say the owners, “with a communal open-plan kitchen, family and dining area forming the hub of the home and flowing easily into the outdoor space. The gardens surrounding the house are planted with grass, trees and bushes, creating a natural area to enjoy the outdoors. The family room and al fresco area look across the water of the pool, which is elevated to the same level as the house to create a feeling of infinite space.”

Portugal Palácio Faria, Príncipe Real, Lisbon The result of an extensive restoration project, Faria Palace stands out on the south side of Praça do Príncipe Real, its striking façade reflecting the sumptuous tastes of its original owner. This is just one of its façades, since the area of Faria Palace is so vast it allows for a second entrance, on Travessa Abarracamento de Peniche. The two entrances provide access to the two buildings that the project is composed of, and that have been joined by a shared underground garage, and a garden that reproduces the verdant greens of the palace’s surroundings. The six apartments perfectly blend history and comfort, sophistication and timelessness. Each apartment is a place of comfort, but also of functionality and convenience – essential concepts for anyone living at the pace of the city and who requires a home to be both a peaceful refuge, and a place to enjoy the company of one’s friends. A true story that reinvented itself several times. Like all good stories, this one is made up of people, nurtured by time and takes place in an idyllic setting.

If one were to play a game of Word Association and the word ‘ruby’ is mentioned, words like ‘large and magical’, ‘old gem’, ‘mystical’, even ‘refined’ might come to mind, propelling you backwards in time to a royal setting. This is how you feel when you enter this jewel of Heidelberg that combines old and new stories. The clean-cut gardens with their shapely trees, and lush green lawns with various stone pathways of different textures, already emphasise the care taken to maintain the character and story this house portrays. The wraparound patio creates easy access to the room of your choice for comfort. On entering the front door, you are met with a warm feeling which continues as you walk on the wooden floors through the top-light doorframes down a passageway that leads to bedrooms each with their own character. Just when you think the story ends, you realise there are two full more chapters: a charming coffee and décor shop, a room for events and backrooms for staff accompanied with parking with a separate entrance from the road.
