Welcome! No matter how often I go to London, I still get

a tremendous buzz from each visit. Hopefully this is something which our regular features on the city

are able to impart as there are just so many places of interest and such a diverse choice of things to see and do.

desire The Aeroboat, one of the fastest and most elegant small yachts ever produced, has been unveiled by UK designers Claydon Reeves. Perfect for anyone wanting to breakfast in St. Tropez, lunch in Antibes and dine in Monaco, its exterior design is inspired by the World War II fighter plane, the Spitfire. Key to the design is the renowned, original Rolls-Royce Merlin engine that powers the Aeroboat. The supercharged Merlin V12 engine, with bespoke gearbox and final drive, can achieve speeds of over 50 knots – making this a refined way of travelling. The interior is based on a sports car design, with beautiful leather stitching and a wooden dashboard, while the forward seats are a shock-mounted design inspired by Spitfire landing gear. The helmsman has the use of a combination of analogue gauges for basic functions and touch-screen navigational systems, as well as a joystick throttle. Able to hold up to seven passengers comfortably, the forward cabin below deck includes a double berth and a small bathroom. The designers are planning to build a limited edition of 12 Aeroboats tailored to the personal requirements of each client, from cockpit layout and interior trim to engine specifications and exterior finishes. From £3m / €3.7m / $5.1m - £3.2m / €3.9m / $5.4m  14

desire Roland Iten, creator of purposely playful, mechanically sophisticated, aesthetically elegant and tactilely sensual accessories for gentlemen, is a main sponsor of the Mille Miglia 2014 and took part himself. During the 1,000-mile, four-day rally, he piloted an historic 1953 Porsche 356 Pre A Coupé 1500 with Dutch driver Joop de Hoogh. As a tribute to this iconic Italian road race, the Swiss inventor has issued a limited edition of four high-precision R8 MKII buckles. This new collection called ‘The Driver’ consists of just four buckles, each engraved with the name of one of the main cities on the Mille Miglia 2014 route – Brescia, Padova, Roma or Bologna – making each buckle a very exclusive piece. Crafted from solid gold, steel and titanium using the same stateof-the-art machinery as used in Swiss watchmaking, ‘The Driver’ features a five-axle construction comprising over 110 components – more than many high-end mechanical wristwatch movements. These include moveable roller bearings, plates, levers and hinges, as well as a patented ‘double ardillon’ tang to ensure a super secure grip of the luxuriant leather belt strap. ‘The Driver’ buckle has two positions, tightening or loosening the belt by exactly 35mm, which is the two-thumb measurement a Savile Row tailor traditionally incorporates into a bespoke suit for added comfort. The buckle can be operated by just one hand for an instant, ergonomic and discreet adjustment. Should you need to manoeuvre to and from a low-seated sports car, 'The Driver' offers a stunning, highly technical yet elegant solution. Approximately £21,650 / €26,600 / $36,250  16

Food for thought The award winning design behind this ‘wow factor kitchen’ had to be practical and ergonomic. This allows the owner to socialise and interact with her family and guests whilst cooking and entertaining, making the kitchen the hub of the home. To achieve this ambitious design statement, a dividing wall was removed that separated the living room and original kitchen area, creating an impressively large room. This enabled a show-stopping chevron shaped island measuring 5.4 metres in length to sit at the heart of the design. A ceiling feature backlit with colour changing LED lights mimics the island, reinforcing the design and further morphing the two rooms into one. Featuring two large Sub Zero integrated fridge/freezers and wine storage unit, along with large Wolf oven and microwave, Miele coffee system and steam oven, and a Zip boiling, chilled water and sparking water tap, it really has everything you could wish for in a dream kitchen. £145,000 including appliances and installation 

A mountainous opportunity As the newest boutique hotel in the region, Hotel Lipka in Kolasin, Montenegro represents the highest and most contemporary standards of mountain hotel design and service. What’s more, it has just come on to the market. This four-star hotel (which won the Wild Beauty Award ) is just a short journey from the beautiful Biogradska Gora National Park and a mere one-hour drive from Podgorica Airport. It was built in  to combine modern style with traditional comfort and features numerous wellness facilities such as a spa complete with hammam, Jacuzzi, massage salon and sauna and a separate, fully equipped gym. The hotel’s five-storey building has been attractively designed to feature natural materials such as stone and wood. It has  cottage-style rooms, some with their own balconies, located over three floors including  suites and  connecting rooms. Ranging from single, twin and standard to superior and executive rooms and suites, all are equipped with internet access, a safe, telephone, TV and mini-bar. They also have the most amazing views over the surrounding mountains and forest. 32

Hotel Lipka.indd 1

Just nine kilometres from the hotel is the completely renovated ski centre Kolasin  which offers a whole host of facilities. All its slopes are on the north side enabling the snow to stay until beginning of the summer. The ski slopes start at , metres above sea level and end at , metres, with the total length of  km. They are suited to both novice and more experienced skiers; some areas have  inclination while two slopes are also FIS homologated (suitable for Olympic games, championships and other international competitions). After a long day enjoying the four-season mountain pursuits, guests staying at Hotel Lipka can relax and take full advantage of its pampering facilities. Located on the top floor is the aptly named Panorama restaurant. With its almost  degree view, glass walls, balconies and lounge areas, it gives a bird’s-eye perspective of the spectacular mountain and river valley below. Additional guest amenities include a conference hall, two bars, a pizzeria, souvenir shop, ski storage, parking and a children’s playground. A cosy home away from home, every guest will feel that Hotel Lipka is their own special place in the mountains.

An appreciation of ART

Gilbert & George Art Exhibition Since first meeting at St Martin’s School of Art, London, in 1967, Gilbert & George have lived and worked together as one single and fiercely independent artist, dedicated solely to the creation of their art. They have no allegiance to any other trend, school, movement, doctrine, theory or style of art. This major exhibition of the art of Gilbert & George includes 46 historical and more recent pictures tracing more than 40 years of creation will be shown in a presentation designed by the artists on the three floors of Villa Paloma. Coming from the collection of a family based in Monaco, it falls into a theme repeatedly addressed by the Nouveau Musee National de Monaco, that of a ‘built’ landscape, subject of analysis and interpretation for a society that constantly changes.

Evening Sale of Old Master and British Paintings This sale is led by Tygers at Play, one of George Stubbs’ most celebrated works. Painted circa 1770-75, this masterful depiction of two leopard cubs ranks among Stubbs’ most popular subjects, reproduced in numerous prints. The painting itself, however, has rarely been seen in public, having been exhibited only four times since its original appearance at the Royal Academy of Arts in London. Testament to the artist’s exceptional eye for capturing the animal form, this admirably preserved work has been sold only once since it was commissioned ‘Tygers at Play’, oil on canvas by George Stubbs.

Camellia Interiors

Classic meets contemporary Torn between choosing a traditional or modern look for your interiors? Our design experts advise that a mix of both can work exceptionally well

16/06/2014 13:28


reating an interior that blends two distinct design styles is a challenge that calls for both ability and a hint of imagination. But get it right and the results can set your house apart from the rest. Design director Elaine Skinner from Camellia Interiors in Cornwall, South West England, is an expert at creating interiors for clients wanting a contemporary lifestyle within classic Cornish properties. Elaine says, “Colour is the first thing we notice in a room, yet the ability to put colours together is a true art. If you want to create a classic meets contemporary interior there are a few techniques that help. Start by walking around the area where you live to notice the architecture and environment in order to bring those colours in to your Elaine Skinner (right) planning more stylish interiors like those above

home. Here in Cornwall certain colours suit certain coasts: for example faded out blues and creamy whites work well in classic architectural interiors in Falmouth, with an accent colour of faded reds as in the sail cloth of the older boats. “Whereas in this property in North Cornwall, the colours I’ve selected reflect the headlands, both warm and slate greys with accents of teal from the deeper seas and ochre from the algae growing on the rocks. It's an all year round harder colour scheme from a wilder existence that perfectly compliements a contemporary home.” The first technique is to use the classic colour palette for the structural elements of the interior, such as walls, flooring and built in cabinetry. This creates a background to which the more contemporary colours can be added on furnishings and accessories which can easily be refreshed in future to perpetuate the contemporary look. The second is to furnish the interior using key principles from each design style. “Smooth, clean geometric shapes are essential for contemporary style furniture” says Elaine. “Select pieces based on these principles, then plan your layout using order, symmetry and balance, which are the fundamentals of classic design.” In the luxury interior shown here, the symmetrical furniture layout surrounding the fireplace, combined with the clean lines of the furniture and cool, limited colour palette demonstrates that classic meeting contemporary can work perfectly.

Patricia Darch designs feature innovative lighting solutions


atricia Darch has been designing interiors both in Spain and internationally for more than 30 years. During this time she and her team have experienced a huge number of changes in the world of furniture and fabrics and their work has evolved to encompass the gradual movement from classic to contemporary during this period. Based in Southern Spain, the company began with the Castillian style of Spanish furnishings both antique and factory produced, with the typical intricate carving of solid wood and wrought iron. Gradually an eclectic mix was introduced to include Moroccan carved tables and chairs and Andalucian tiled furniture. This was a distinct move away from the heavy, dark, almost gloomy, carved pieces so popular during centuries in Spain. Within a few years, the dark wood gave way to the decape look of French Provence which was eagerly adopted

by their Spanish neighbours, giving a completely fresh and light feel to interior design and a more contemporary look in general. “This was a gigantic leap forward for everyone involved in the world of design,” explains Patricia, “opening the door to innovative designs with simple, straight lines, luxurious lacquered finishes, the combination of wood and mirrored effects, perspex and glass furniture, all combining to add light and creating wide open spaces. “Lighting of course continues to be an extremely important factor in every project and the introduction of mood lighting, LEDs and Domotics have proved to be the choice in most contemporary design, making huge progress from the classic hanging lights and sconces used for so many years. Emphasis on lighting is now paramount in the world of interiors.”

The missing six Jaguar has confirmed it will build six perfect reproductions of the original, race-bred Lightweight E-type that was created in 1963, and they’ll come with official FIA papers that allow them to compete in historic events around the world. The new cars are described as the ‘missing’ six vehicles from Jaguar’s Lightweight E-type project, which originally started in February 1963 with the objective of building 18 ‘Special GT E-type Cars’. Only 12 were ever built, leaving six ‘period’ chassis numbers for lucky owners with deep enough pockets to stand what is rumoured to be a £1 million price tag. The new cars will be hand-built in-house under the auspices of the Jaguar Land Rover Individual Products Division headed by former Land Rover brand director John Edwardes. Each will be constructed to the exact specifications of their original 1960s forebears – including the 3.8-litre straight-six engine, although owners may specify colours and trim.

The new Ferrari California T epitomises elegance, sportiness, versatility and exclusivity: characteristics that have distinguished every California model since the 1950s. Its retractable hard top transforms it from a chic coupé into a sleekly sophisticated spider in a mere 14 seconds. The direct-injection, 3855cc turbo 8-cylinder engine is mounted very low in the chassis in a mid-front position and provides extraordinary acceleration from 0-62mph in just 3.6 seconds. Top speed is 196mph. From approx £152,154 

The Lamborghini Huracán obtained 700 orders during the early stages of a month-long private preview tour worldwide for VIP clients. An excellent start for the heir to the best selling Lamborghini to date, the Gallardo. The Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4 is powered by a 610-horsepower 5.2-litre normally-aspirated V10 engine, which allows it to reach a top speed of 201mph and accelerate from 0-62mph in 3.2 seconds, placing it at the top of its segment. From approx £188,000 

Honed on the track to excel on the road, the new Aston Martin V8 Vantage N430 – available in Coupe or Roadster form – boasts a power hike to 436 PS at 7,300 rpm that brings its output up to that of the V8 Vantage S. Lightweight features such as carbon fibre and Kevlar seats and 10-spoke forged alloy wheels in a new graphite painted finish, combine to make the N430 capable of 190 mph, with a 0-60 mph time that drops to 4.6 seconds. First deliveries are expected to begin in September. From £89,995  50

extreme and certainly the loudest. However if it is loud you want, a small rear central window can be lowered to transmit all the engine sound back to the driver. This is useful for drowning out boring conversation from your passenger or irritating adverts on the radio. If planning a long journey, the strada setting mutes the engine note but not the speed. The rear view is not great but Lamborghini has installed a high definition video camera which gives a much better view than a rear mirror and the door mounted mirrors are better than on most cars. Another hazard facing most low-slung sports cars is road humps which could clip the nose, therefore the LP700 has a hydraulic lifting gear which raises the front and then lowers it when you build up the speed again. The roof is made of painted carbon fibre and comes apart in two sections which are stored in the front of the car. As the panels are very light, they do not require much muscle to remove and stow away neatly when not required. International Property & Travel

New York and Los Angeles ranked second and third, respectively, driven by exceptional growth in luxury sales volume. “With more millionaires and billionaires in the world than ever before, pent-up demand and increasing consumer confidence, luxury real estate sales surged in 2013 around the world,” said Bonnie Stone Sellers, chief executive officer of Christie’s International Real Estate. “Strong momentum in the global international luxury housing market was led by cities such as San Francisco, New York, and London, which saw year-over-year increases of 62 per cent, 22 per cent, and 20 per cent respectively, in the total number of $1 million property sales.” International Property & Travel

Designed by two of Britain’s finest architects, the property was first completed in 1712 by English Baroque architect Thomas Archer before being extended by Sir Edwin Lutyens in 1912. Due to the owner’s bankruptcy, it subsequently became a convalescent home for injured servicemen. After being sold to the NHS it then became the Douglas Bader Centre, opened by Princess Diana in 1993. Roehampton House has now been renovated into 22 stunning residences, retaining all original period features.

xploring such a vast area spanning the North American continent from the Atlantic to the Pacific Oceans is a tall order within just one article. However, naturally there are certain places, properties and pursuits that stand out. Here we’ve highlighted a selection that caught our attention, starting with some simply stunning homes. Although the freezing conditions which affected much of the US last winter slowed the property market somewhat, there are definite signs of a thaw with prime properties on sale for historically short periods. Robert Green, general manager of Abercrombie & Kent International Estates, comments, “Parts of the US residential property market have seen significant growth in the last year with New York City and Miami performing best of all. With record low inventory in prime urban areas prices have rocketed, exceeding rental growth in the past two years. The NYC metro area saw $60.5 billion of investment in the year to February 2014 and is expected to see growth of around 9% over the next year.” While transactions have been predominantly home born, Mr Green reports that there has been a significant increase in international buyers from the UK, Russia, China and Brazil. “Seen as a safe investment,” he continues, “we anticipate this trend to continue for some time with buyers favouring prime urban locations which appeal to the primary as well as the secondary market.”

should benefit greatly from the improvements at Gazipasa,” said Julian Walker, director at Spot Blue International Property. “Demand for apartments on one of the resort’s many beachside complexes, especially popular with northern Europeans, is only set to increase and we could see prices creep up.” Mr Walker also reports that demand for luxury residences in upmarket districts of Istanbul is continuing to rise, fuelled by buyers from the Middle East who are also attracted by investment opportunities presented by developments in the city’s growing suburbs. In March 2014 alone, foreigners bought 478 properties in Istanbul, out of a nationwide total of 1,362, according to the Turkish Statistical Institute. “The Gulf-Turkish affair is gaining momentum,” said Julian Walker. “For Gulf investors, Istanbul is an attractive stepping stone between the East and West, as well as a place to be seen.” Growth in Istanbul’s real estate market is unmatched by European markets, most of which remain depressed, and price growth is occurring at similar levels to London. “Typical buy-to-let investments are in the $150,000 to $200,000 bracket,” continued Mr Walker. “The market is moving quickly though. Our representative in Istanbul reports that new apartments in prime areas of Beylikduzu that were on the market six months ago for $80,000 should be worth in excess of $100,000 once the development is completed later in the year.” International Property & Travel

It also harbours one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Temple of Artemis derived from the ancient cult of Anatolian mother goddess Cybele. Established in 6000 BC, Ephesus was one of the 12 cities of the Ionian union. Some of the most impressive attractions at Ephesus include the Library of Celsus, the Temple of Hadrian and the ancient theatre. 

The Blue Mosque, Istanbul While still used as a mosque, the Sultan Ahmed, or Blue Mosque as it has become known, was built between 1609 and 1616 by the young Sultan Ahmet I. It was designed to rival its neighbour the Hagia Sophia and, with its hierarchy of increasingly large domes, this vast complex helped define Istanbul’s skyline. The interior is equally grand and includes swathes of over 20,000 hand made blue tiles which give this magnificent building its name. 

hink of Switzerland and you will probably summon up images of the most stunning mountain and lake vistas. As with visiting most countries, a little inside information goes a long way and sometimes the most direct routes are not the best or most scenic. With this in mind, a new joint initiative from the Swiss Travel System and Switzerland Tourism called ‘Panoramic Pleasures’ will ensure visitors enjoy a stress-free experience and don’t miss any of the highlights. Tourists can now discover 10 of the country’s most beautiful routes via train, bus and boat leaving their hands totally free for capturing everything on camera ( As for those wishing to stay on a more regular basis, Engel & Volkers reports that the most expensive location in Switzerland is the ski resort of Gstaad in the Bernese Oberland. Prices for detached homes and mansions here range from 3 million Swiss francs (approx €2.5 million) in average locations through to 50 million Swiss francs (approx €40.9 million) for highly exclusive chalets in prime positions. “Whilst we are anticipating further price rises for some locations, other submarkets are seeing a levelling out of

prices having reached their highest mark. Search clients are paying very close attention to offers and are no longer willing to accept any price demands,” said Jörg Schmittschneider, managing director of Engel & Völkers Switzerland. On Zurich’s Gold Coast, purchase prices for mansions and detached homes in average locations currently lie between 2.2 and 3.5 million Swiss francs (approx. €1.8 – 2.9 million). In prime locations, properties in this segment rarely change hands for anything under 5 million Swiss francs (approx €4.1 million). Holiday homes in the mountains and Mediterranean-like south of Switzerland are also proving very popular such as freehold apartments and houses in the desirable winter sports resorts of Davos and Klosters. “The number of sales is still stable in spite of a continuation in the price high,” says Mr Schmittschneider. “One reason for this is the high level of demand for property in Switzerland, which continues unabated,” “Engel & Völkers has seen the sharpest rise in prices over recent years in the west of Switzerland. A stabilisation of residential property prices can now be expected however, especially in towns and cities, and suburban areas.” International Property & Travel

stay The Dolder Resort

Offers a perfect balance between Zurich’s pulsating city life and the peace of its surrounding forest


fter four years of conversion and renovation work, the city of Zurich welcomed the return of one of its landmarks, the Dolder Grand, in April 2008. This was probably the most sensational renovation project ever undertaken in the Swiss hotel industry. Renowned London architects Foster and Partners combined the historic main building of the hotel, some of which is listed, with modern architectural accoutrements. All annexes constructed after 1899 were demolished, and two modern wings – the Spa Wing and the Golf Wing – now enclose the main building. The hotel makes use of geothermal energy for efficient energy consumption, with 70 probes having been sunk 150 metres into the ground. Since its reopening, the Dolder Grand has re-established its role as a meeting place for personalities from the worlds of politics, 116

Switzerland.indd 7

business and culture. Numerous VIPs have signed their names in the guest book in recent years. These include Bill and Hillary Clinton, Prince William, David Cameron and Leonardo DiCaprio. Going as far back as 1899, the history of the Dolder Grand reveals a stream of famous visitors such as Henry Kissinger, Winston Churchill, Nelson Mandela, Albert Einstein, Liz Taylor and Luciano Pavarotti. The hotel was even used as a prominent setting for a Hollywood film, namely ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’.

Apart from the 50 x 17.5 metre open air pool with diving board, guests can also enjoy the 10,000m2 meadow for games, sunbathing or simply relaxing. A mini-golf course is next to Dolder Bad and tickets offering combined admission to both are perfect for those who fancy playing a few holes to round off their visit to the pool.

The Glacier Express Travel from the Engadine to the Matterhorn in 7.5 hours or vice versa. There may be quicker ways of getting there but none provides more pleasure than the Glacier Express. The world’s slowest express train is also the most famous – with its stunning scenery and remarkable array of railway engineering feats linking the fashionable Alpine resorts of St. Moritz and Zermatt. The red and white train winds its way through no fewer than 91 tunnels and across 291 bridges. Observation carriages open up vistas of stunning landscapes – for example, the 400-metre deep Rhine Gorge, the 2,033-metre high Oberalp Pass and of course the mighty Matterhorn in Zermatt.  120

The Matterhorn This pyramid shaped colossus of a mountain, which is very difficult to climb, is said to be the most-photographed mountain in the world. The Klein-Matterhorn (Little Matterhorn), which can be reached via a funicular, is adjacent to the Matterhorn.

Lucerne and the Chapel Bridge Framed by impressive mountains, Lucerne is at the end of Lake Lucerne and divided by the river Reuss into an Old Town and a New Town. These are connected by what is among other things the world's oldest covered wooden bridge, the Chapel Bridge, which dates back to the year 1332. The bridge was rebuilt true to the original after the fire of 1993 and leads to the landmark of Lucerne, its octagonal water tower. Like the over 500-year-old Musegg Wall with its turrets, the bridge and water tower were part of the city fortifications. Photography: Switzerland Tourism

The Perspex and wood cube side table from Belgium is definitely the ‘show stopper’ of the furniture! The Master bedroom is decorated in shades of grey and black with a crystal embossed wallpaper to reflect the light shining into the room. The second bedroom is blue and white with a headboard of hand carved water lilies which we painted in white and from there the blue was a natural colour choice to complement it. The fabric of the curtains was manufactured specially for us in India. The whole look of the apartment is bright and fresh and takes full advantage of the lush landscape it is nestled in.

17 Caldecott Close, Singapore

Announcing Asia Pacific’s Best Property Professionals. . . This is always an exciting moment as Asia Pacific is the first region in each year’s International Property Awards’ schedule to be judged. Once again entrants from across the Asia Pacific have set an impressive benchmark for all other regions to follow. During the course of the year our extensive panel of judges will continue to seek out the winning formula of innovation, sustainability, eco-awareness and overall ‘wow factor’ that elevates a company from being simply good to exceptional. Demonstrating the criteria perfectly, Best Single Unit Property was won by Maldives ‘Ocean Flower’ by Dutch Docklands Maldives. Taking its name from a Maldivian bloom, this villa is both spacious and spectacular in a magnificent waterside setting. Best Apartment went to ‘1919 – The Black and White Residences’ by Aurum Land. Its design recalls the elegance of Singapore’s colonial era, cleverly infused with contemporary materials and techniques. Through optimising views and natural light, Best Interior Design Private Residence was won by ‘17 Caldecott Close, Singapore’ from Design Intervention. Its design is elegant yet uncomplicated, warm, welcoming and family-oriented. Many congratulations to these companies and all the other award winners listed within this book. I would also like to remind entrants that they are invited to participate in our forthcoming Property Summits in Dubai, Los Angeles and London. Companies in related businesses as well as members of the public are also welcome to attend, widening prime networking opportunities even further. Please visit our website at for full details of dates, locations and how to register.
