Welcome! The big question at this time of year has to be whether to opt for sun and sand or ski and snow. With this in mind, we’ve included a full 14-page ‘ski special’ plus features on Florida, which is also rightly known as the Sunshine State, and Italy. The former is full of information on a whole host of different ski areas around the world and includes 13 simply stunning properties for sale. Have a leisurely browse through all three articles – you may well be tempted to buy a place in the mountains as well as by the beach. Our regular feature on London takes an interesting twist this issue as Ginetta Vedrickas highlights the many benefits of living outside of town. By choosing your area wisely, not only will you get a lot more for your money, with today’s transport systems, you can also reach the city surprisingly quickly. Last but not least, I’ve been particularly interested in what our two guest interior designers have to say on the subject of creating a perfect bathroom. Having been flooded by a tidal surge a few months ago, I’ve decided to plan a new bathroom to coincide with the ongoing restoration work. There are so many wonderful options available in terms of lay-outs, materials and colours but now I feel filled with inspiration!

ooking at this stunning private estate it’s almost impossible to believe that an estate of this size and stature is only 14 miles from the heart of London. The Lakesview Estate is privately owned and set in what can only be described as the most exclusive parcel of real estate so close to the city. The estate comprises a highly luxurious main residence and a range of outbuildings. These include guest accommodation, stables and a lakeside pavilion as well as provision for security staff should they

be required. Both Lakesview House along with the front gate/guest house, Broadview House, have been decorated to the highest levels and feature bespoke designs at every turn. The sumptuous living areas within the estate comprising in all of 13 bedrooms exude elements of both classic and contemporary elegance. There are formal and informal dining areas, sophisticated reception rooms, a wine-tasting room with bar, state-of-the-art kitchen and fully-equipped gym.

Seeing is believing

Within the 111 acres the 15 acres of manicured gardens that surround the main residence add to the overall feeling of peace and tranquility within the estate. With three well-stocked fishing lakes, a tennis court, swimming pool, fitness ‘Trim Trail’ and post and rail horse paddocks, there is very little to necessitate leaving the estate grounds. What’s more, there is even the ability to enjoy the occasional game of golf on a private and distinctly challenging nine-hole course. Then, once it’s time to sit back and relax, there are endless opportunities for al fresco dining and entertaining on terraces overlooking the lakes and beautifully landscaped grounds. In short, the ‘Lakesview Estate’ in Kent, a county revered as the ‘Garden of England’, provides private, secure living via its select properties, each contained within its extensive grounds and all within remarkably easy reach of London.

Taking a shine

The Constanze is a hand-painted version of one of Kolarz’s most popular and beautiful chandeliers. Enhanced with crystal droplets, its style has been inspired by the iconic Austrian artist, Gustav Klimt. The 24ct gold plated chandelier is named in honour of the wife of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and comes in two sizes (five or eight arms) with optional handmade organza shades in cream, black or burgundy. The hand painted droplets give the chandelier a subtle, contemporary twist making it ideal for a formal reception room or elegant bedroom.

Centre of attention

The range also includes coordinating, two arm wall lights. £1,700 www.kolarz-uk.com

Being a vast 140cm in length, this outstanding centrepiece Murano glass bowl is, more than anything, a work of art. It is designed by London silversmith Grant Macdonald in a limited edition of just 10, exclusive to Harrods. The bowl is hand-crafted by skilled glassmakers in Murano, Italy, while the cream, hide leather stand is hand-stitched in London. It takes over 35 hours to create the sterling silver base which is hand-crafted by expert silversmiths in Grant Macdonald’s workshop. An additional eight hours is spent polishing the sterling silver to give the perfect mirror finish that Grant Macdonald demands. £22,950 www.grantmacdonald.com

Nautical nuance The new Kettal Maia Rope Collection designed by Patricia Urquiola adds a lightness and natural elegance to the original classic design. Each chair is hand-braided with nautical rope and the legs are teak, a combination that transmits energy and warmth.

Works by famed artists such as Rembrandt, Degas and Turner are on show this winter, either at exhibition or auction

Rembrandt: The Late Works Having already suffered the early loss of his wife and three of their children, Rembrandt’s later years were burdened with bankruptcy, acrimonious legal proceedings with a former lover, and the loss of his common-law wife and only remaining son. However, far from diminishing as he aged, Rembrandt’s creativity gathered new energy. From the 1650s until his death in 1669, Rembrandt pursued an artistic style that was expressive and radical. His bold manipulation of printing and painting techniques and progressive interpretations of traditional subjects inspired generations of artists, earning him a reputation as the greatest master of the Dutch Golden Age. Through famous masterpieces and rare drawings and prints, ‘The Late Works’ examines the themes that preoccupied Rembrandt as he grew older: self-scrutiny, experimentation, light, observation of everyday life and even other artists’ works; as well as expressions of intimacy, contemplation, conflict and reconciliation.

At a significant 48 by 40 inches, Jimson Weed/White Flower No. 1 is one of the rare instances early in her career that O’Keeffe chose a canvas size noticeably larger than her usual format. Owned originally by the artist’s sister Anita O’Keeffe Young, the work hung in the White House for six years at the request of First Lady Laura Bush and has been featured in nearly every major retrospective on the artist.

Degas’s Little Dancer An iconic work in the National Gallery of Art’s collection, ‘Little Dancer Aged Fourteen’ takes centre stage in a focus exhibition presented in conjunction with the world-premiere of the musical ‘Little Dancer’ that runs from October 5th – November 30th at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Washington, DC. The musical is inspired by Edgar Degas’s renowned original wax statuette of a young ballerina, which caused a sensation when it was first shown at the 1881 impressionist exhibition in Paris. The sculpture is one of the most popular works of art in the National Gallery of Art collection. The National Gallery of Art has the third largest collection of Degas works in the world. ‘Little Dancer Aged Fourteen’ will be presented with 11 additional paintings, prints, pastels, and sculptures that exemplify Degas’s fascination with ballet.

Old Master and British Paintings Evening Sale One of the last great Turner masterpieces remaining in private hands will be the highlight of this sale. Painted in 1835 by Britain’s most celebrated artist, ‘Rome, from Mount Aventine’ is among Turner’s most subtle and atmospheric depictions of the Italian city, a subject that captivated him for over 20 years. The large-scale oil painting is further distinguished by its exceptional state of preservation, as well as a prestigious and unbroken provenance, having changed hands for the only time in 1878, when it was acquired by the 5th Earl of Rosebery, later Prime Minister of Great Britain. Estimated at £15m - £20m December 3rd at Sotheby’s London  www.sothebys.com

Mao Wen Biao Solo Exhibition Born in Shanghai in 1950, Mao Wen Biao studied art in Beijing, continuing at the Royal College of Art and has made his home in Kent. While still at the Royal College, his technical virtuosity attracted a visionary property developer, John Hunter. Since the 1980s Hunter has masterminded the revival of Kensington and Chelsea streets, commissioning vast murals from Mao to disguise building works and attract public attention. Mao is a painter of sport, monumental murals and lavish flower studies, and has won numerous awards and important commissions. The new Mao Wen Biao solo show will include abundant beds of flowers as well cyclists en masse. His cyclists strangely echo the strength of a cavalry charge or pounding horses in a close run classic race. Mao has attracted collectors in the racing world including thoroughbred racing owner Michael Tabor.  www.osg.uk.com November 19th

Bathroom bliss

We seek advice from award-winning interior designers on how to create your own perfect oasis of peace and relaxation

A

bathroom is a place of escape, somewhere where you can soak away stresses and strains or enjoy an exhilarating shower while you collect your thoughts in readiness for the day ahead. It’s therefore well worth spending time and money on getting the space exactly right for your preferences and needs.

Etcetera Living

tcetera Living was founded in Dubai in 2003 by Lesley Zaal and she and her team take pride in transforming empty spaces into warm and welcoming homes. “In today’s busy world it has become increasingly important to create a bathroom that is not only functional but pleasing to the eye,” she explains. “Often you find that there is no storage in bathrooms so I always make sure that there is at least one cupboard in which to store essentials.” Lesley prefers to use light, neutral shades in bathrooms to help create the illusion of space even in the tiniest bathroom. “If the bathroom is really tight I would suggest removing the bathtub and replacing it with a good rainhead (plus hand held) shower. By using a glass partition and clever positioning of linear drainage you can create the feeling of a much airier space than the traditional shower over the bath. “With everyone being much more aware of ‘going green’, it makes more sense to have a shower rather than a bath and, if I am designing for a villa with limited bathroom space, I prefer to suggest to the client that we have only a bath in one of the rooms and install showers in the other bathrooms. It also makes more sense to have showers with busy lifestyles.” Marble has long been associated with luxurious construction, particularly in bathrooms. However, Lesley

advises that there are so many finishes to choose from nowadays that it is no longer necessary to choose only marble. “For me, the marble (if used) should be as a feature wall, rather than on every surface. Vanity tops are also now available in so many finishes and for practicality there is nothing to beat the manmade materials currently on the market in a myriad of finishes. The beauty of these is that you don’t have to worry about staining, whereas with the natural stone, there is always the worry that a bottle of bath oil or perfume could stain the stone permanently!” Regarding faucets, Lesley says that there are now so many brands on the market that the designer is spoilt for choice. “Personally however, the simpler and more streamlined, the better. One thing to consider though, is how do the taps actually feel in the hand? Sometimes the design might be fabulous but they are just not comfortable to use. Most brands now come automatically with water saving devices but it is easy to retro fit a water saving aerator to the original taps.” As for the all-important sanitaryware, Lesley is adamant - always stick with white. “Colour can be added in feature walls, mosaics or even towels. Nothing beats white sinks and toilets! Ultimately, the bathroom should feel clean and neat, but not Spartan and cold and it is the designer’s job to make sure that the client gets a beautiful but practical bathroom.”

Bishop Design

ounded by Paul and Ellen Bishop in 2004, Dubai-based Bishop Design has continuously completed projects across the entire MENA region as well as internationally. Ellen believes that black represents a design language which can go very wrong if utilized without consideration to size and shape of space and to selection of materials. On the other hand, she says it can give an astonishing result with a warm, avant-garde, opulent and elegant look and feel. “In one of our recent designs for a private penthouse we have gone for an all-black contemporary design using multiple materials to contrast all, representing differing layers of textures, finishes and gloss. As the client wished to add a touch of Arabesque design, the lights chosen added that flair as well as giving exciting reflections. The storage is mainly tucked on the side in a practical unit, half open and closed, which allowed us to keep the vanity counter exposed and the gold plated sanitary ware and accessories helps to bring the design to the exclusive level intended. “With powder rooms, we always keep in mind that these spaces are essentially a part of the main entertainment areas for a property. They should therefore have features that will impress guests but emanate comfort at the same time.” In the example shown here, Bishop Design has used leather tiles as the space has very little humidity. “This gave us the

freedom to choose softer materials and the rest of the powder room is clad with neutral cream porcelain tiles to balance the budget,” Ellen explains. “We have placed simple glass shelves on the wall for basic storage set against a combination of leather and porcelain tiles and a freestanding basin not to take up too much space. The bronze plated custom made lighting layered from the ceiling and the subtle indirect lighting behind the full wall mirror also gives a nice warm touch.” When designing bathrooms with the luxury of an astounding view, the Bishop Design team always takes maximum advantage during space planning and designing. “In this case,” explains Ellen, “the bathtub has been strategically placed to be able to fully enjoy the view and the rain shower has been given a good size also with view and natural light. We have selected all natural materials in relatively neutral colours to emphasize the beauty of the view and for the atmosphere to flow through the space. The large slabs of marble and wooden floors represent the natural elements which furthermore incorporates the striking exterior. This bathroom was designed to be as natural and organic as possible in synergy with openness and natural light.”

Revival reminiscences There was a magical glow about this year's Goodwood Revival Meeting and not just because the motor circuit was bathed in sunshine for much of the weekend. The on-track thrills and spills were spot on and the guests all arrived looking fantastic. Just like last year there was a sell-out crowd of 148,000 visitors to witness the incredible vehicles on show. A sign of the quality and financial value of these automobiles came in the RAC TT Celebration, which featured £150 million worth of machinery. But in the moment, all of that was meaningless and everyone was simply entranced by a thrilling race between beautiful motor cars. There many more highlights too: the Maserati 250Fs; the stunning double Lancaster display; the 600-strong tribute to the people of Sussex's contribution to the Second World War; the Jaguar D-Type race; the Lavant Cup for Jaguar D-Types, the list could go on and on.

Modena celebrations for Maserati The Maserati Centennial International Gathering in mid-September proved a key event in the celebrations to mark the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Modena-based company. The first day of the official programme, involving over 200 Maseratis and over 500 Maserati collectors and clients from 30 countries across the world, was dedicated to the city of Modena. Vintage and modern Maseratis began making their way into Modena in the early hours, lining up in Piazza Grande in the shadow of the Ghirlandina, the white stone bell tower that is the symbol of the Emilian city. "Of the many automobile producers born in Italy in the last century, only a few have reached such a milestone and this fills me with joy," declared Alfieri Maserati, son of Ernesto, one of the founding brothers. "The name we bear symbolises brilliance, innovation and the desire to create the unique and novel features we find in today's cars." The first day of the Maserati Centennial International Gathering ended with a guided tour and dinner at the company’s historic factory in Viale Ciro Menotti, Modena. After a lengthy parade through the city’s streets, involving more than 200 classic and modern Maseratis and the majority of Modena’s population, gathering participants enjoyed a guided tour of the complex that Maserati has occupied since it moved from Bologna to Modena in 1939, and where the Maserati GranTurismo, GranCabrio and Alfa Romeo 4C are now produced.  www.maserati.com

report strong demand in the luxury homes market. Director of Keats Haslemere, Adrian Hardwick, says, “The continuing resurgence of the London market has meant strong market conditions in this favoured part of the Surrey Hills and this - coupled with good local schools - continues to drive the market. Homes with access to the South Downs National Park always prove popular.” Much of Surrey is easily accessible by rail making its pretty villages great hunting grounds for homes. Developer Martin Grant Homes is selling prime homes in sought after spots such as exclusive Belmont Place in Burpham, near Guildford which is just 34 minutes by rail into Waterloo. Five secluded family houses have elegant finishes and start from £1.15 million. The first six months of 2014 were quieter compared with recent months says Barton Wyatt’s James Wyatt who believes that the resurrection of the mansion tax proposal will inevitably cause concern. “In recent weeks, the expectation of interest rate rises receding had a positive effect on buyers’ willingness to purchase,” he says. “Nevertheless, international interest continues to dominate the top of the market. The UK is, quite simply, in a league of its own.” This year, the outward migration from the capital to Bucks, Berks and Herts has increased particularly for the luxury house 52

market according to Joanna Cocking, Country House Director at Hamptons International who is based in prime Beaconsfield in Buckinghamshire. She explains, “Buyers are able to get double the square footage and a large garden for the same amount of money by making the move out of London. By moving to these areas there is also no need to compromise with commute times, with some journey times running at under half an hour,” adding that typical budgets are between £2-5 million. Families flock here for state and private schools and a move from central London brings dividends. “Over the course of 2014 we have seen several instances of sellers achieving high prices in the London market, only to tactically spend a portion of the sale price, but acquiring a much larger property,” says Ms Cocking. For anyone who hankers after city living but who prefers a quieter pace, the historic city of Cambridge could be a draw. Bidwell’s David Bentley reports a booming market at the top end. “Cambridge's high end market continues to be active, returning with 'gusto' after the slight softening through the holiday months. With a reasonable improvement in stock levels, those recognised Cambridge avenues are still expected to achieve over guide levels with a recent transaction achieving over 30% more than its guide.” International Property & Travel

Jing Mian Xin Cheng Beijing, China

Jin Mian Xin Cheng, an eye-catching mixed-use development adjacent to Beijing’s Fourth Ring Road, was the winner of a ‘Best Office and Business Development’ accolade at the MIPIM Asia Awards 2013. The development consists of two office towers and a retail podium immediately adjacent to the road, with a protected public plaza to their rear. Given that the massing of the blocks was predicated and constrained by the sunlight requirements of a residential development to the north of the site, SPARK’s work focused on the detailed design of the façade and landscape. The inspiration for the ‘pleated’ and ‘woven’ façade was drawn from the former presence of the textile market. Says SPARK Director Jan Felix Clostermann, “The pleating and weaving effects emerged from the visualisation of the facades as pieces of three-dimensional fabric rather than paper-thin curtain walls.” Pleats of perforated aluminium sheet establish a heavily textured façade for the retail podium, while angular ‘threads’ of glazing adhere to a weaving logic that slowly dissolves as it progresses upward. The ‘thickened’ facades perform a number of functions beyond enclosure. Firstly, they baffle the traffic noise of the ring road and offer a level of acoustic protection to the interior. The weave effect on the towers is thus concentrated at the lower levels, fading out with height. Secondly, in the case of the woven glazing, the façade engages with interior space by sculpting new habitable zones at the building’s edge. Simulateously, the woven glazing establishes new opportunities for ventilation. Clostermann explains, “The weave allowed us to add small side

Spark.indd 1

openings for natural ventilation. In most of Beijing’s Grade A office developments, windows are very large, heavy, top-hung panels that are difficult to operate and prone to falling. Many building operators do not allow windows to be opened for this reason, yet air conditioning is usually switched off at 6pm and remains off on weekends. This is a problem for those who need to work beyond regular office hours.” Smaller, lighter, and much easier to use, Jin Mian Xin Cheng’s side windows are thus a practical and low-tech solution to a common problem. The etremities of the ‘weave’ serve an additional function as easily accessed light boxes for night-time illumination of the building. In a similar vein, SPARK’s landscape design for the plaza establishes a habitable topography of folds on the horizontal plane. “The ground folds up to create seating, and to demarcate different zones in the plaza for different activities,” says Clostermann. This continuation of the theme in the landscape design assures a pedestrian experience as impactful as the visual experience of the passing motorist.

High-end buyers and celebrities are drawn to Florida’s shimmering coastline, blue skies and all year round sunshine. Ginetta Vedrickas investigates its appeal further

Above: One Thousand Museum, Miami

F

Taking a shine

ashionable Miami is the jewel in Florida’s crown and a house here at Golden Beach recently broke records for the highest ever sales price locally. It was also in the top 10 prices ever paid in Miami. In keeping with its famed celebrity clientele, Ronald Tutor, former owner of Miramax Pictures, paid $22.5 million for an oceanfront home. Ralph Arias, from One Sotheby’s Realty was the happy agent who clinched the deal. “This is a really special home with over 11,000 square feet of living space and direct ocean frontage,” he explains. “I have dealt with many of the highest value sales in Miami, however this is certainly the best to date.” But future sales may be just as bright for Mr Arias. One Sotheby’s Realty is also marketing Miami’s new skyscraper, One Thousand Museum, designed by prestigious architect Zaha Hadid. Famous for her soaring cities around the world, she has created a sculpted masterpiece, a 60 storey tower on coveted location Biscayne Boulevard. Founder and CEO of One Sotheby’s International Realty, Mayi De La Vega, says the building is a first for Miami. “It’s the first residential tower designed by an architect of Hadid’s international standing with the level of amenities this extraordinary building will provide. Iconic architecture, stunning skyline and ocean views, and close proximity to Miami’s finest cultural

quarter, will position One Thousand Museum as one of the world’s most coveted residential towers.”

Perfect timing

And the timing for high-end developments couldn’t be better. Joanna Leverett, head of international developments at Savills, says the current Miami market is going through a resurgence, with high demand from overseas buyers. “Prices are up 22% from their 2011 low with the prime market seeing the most activity. One Thousand Museum, when it is finished, will be comparable with the likes of One Hyde Park in London and One57 in New York,” she adds. Vanessa Grout, president of CMC Real Estate agrees that the market is ‘incredibly active for the right projects’. International Property & Travel

One Thousand Museum, Miami Internationally renowned architect Zaha Hadid has achieved the perfect fusion of art, architecture and design with One Thousand Museum, Miami’s most prestigious new skyscraper. Overlooking Museum Park, it rises to 60 storeys to a dramatic, double-height amenity space at its crown. Inside the tower, distinct residential zones comprise duplex townhouses, half-floor residences, full-floor penthouses and a single duplex penthouse, within a secure, state-of-the-art environment. Residences capitalise on the unrivalled views over Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean and expansive living and entertaining spaces all capture this panorama with oversized terraces. Offering a parking valet, doormen and concierges, One Thousand Museum provides a six-star hotel style service plus a wellness spa for residents opening on to the surrounding pool and recreation terraces. From £2.5m / €3.2m / $4m One Sotheby’s Realty +1 855 663 6873

Currently selling the spectacular Brickell Flatiron which will have a pool, spa and gym on top of its 700-foot tower, she says that the striking development encapsulates the characteristic features that luxury buyers, mainly affluent South American although North American, European and Asian purchasers, are also highly represented, now demand. “No longer are views the important selling point. Buyers are much more focused on the actual location of the property, the shops, restaurants, grocery and real conveniences nearby. Construction quality is also crucial.” Florida has long been a favourite for British buyers and Andrew Woolley, of foreign exchange specialists Moneycorp, explains why. “A mixture of sharing a common language, similar cultural makeup and great transport links, make the United States an attractive option for investing Brits. So far 2014 has been an interesting year for currency, exchange rate fluctuations have ranged from between 1.7190 to 1.5854 and Mr Woolley notices extensive new development now 64

Florida_v21n5.indd 2

coming through to meet growing demand. “There are new construction projects underway and more property developers are buying land to meet the taste of overseas buyers. We’ve seen the number of Brazilian buyers increase in numbers over the past 12 months. We are also seeing a significant proportion of Canadian buyers looking south for a sunny winter retreat.”

On the right track

Florida’s improving infrastructure is also a draw. This year, the revolutionary SunRail train project launched to improve the state's accessibility, for commuters and tourists alike, and a proposed expansion to Orlando airport will surely further boost the Sunshine State’s appeal. Phillip Button, MD of property investment specialists Brookes & Co, believes it’s good news for buyers. “Florida has been going from strength to strength, with the Orlando area in particular registering impressive growth in terms of both the economy and house prices in recent times. Now, with the impact of the new SunRail, and its proposed major expansion in the pipeline, this is looking set to flourish further still,” he adds. The market may be flourishing but some realtors report a worrying lack of stock. Downing-Frye Realty’s Steve Schoepfer says his inventory is down by 28%. “At the top of our market, inventories are now quite low. This has resulted in a decrease in pending and closed sale activity.” He warns buyers seeking beachfront condos in the $2 to $3 million price range in Park Shore to come armed and ready with cash and a willingness to act fast. “Be prepared to make an offer as there are just a couple of listings.” Mr Schoepfer’s listings are also breaking price barriers he warns, “A single family home in Port Royal was just listed for $68 million, this is the most expensive home ever listed for sale in Naples!”

ood food, good wine, a laid-back attitude to life and an agreeable climate – is it any wonder Italy is so popular with overseas property buyers looking for an investment or a second home? It’s something the locals themselves discovered a long time ago, says Jelena Cvjetkovic, associate director at Savills International Residential. “Italians have traditionally loved holidaying 'at home' and own second homes – mainly in coastal areas – all over Italy.” Recent years have however seen a change, she adds. “At the top end Italian buyers have almost disappeared from the market, while there has been an influx of Russian, Scandinavian and in more recent times Asian buyers.” Gemma Bruce of Aylesford International agrees. “All our clients are from overseas. Over the past few months we have dealt with a wide range of nationalities including, Americans, British, French, Swiss, Norwegian, German, Chinese, Russian, Ukrainian, Israeli, Indian, Singaporean and Indonesian.” A report published earlier this year by real estate website GateAway.com certainly bears out the anecdotal evidence. It found that the highest proportion of property enquiries through its site for Italy came from overseas – from the UK, followed by the USA, France Germany and Belgium. It isn’t just the quality of life that appeals to investors though, says Daniela Gisti, of Precious Villas in Florence. “Buying a luxury property International Property & Travel

today means a sure gain in a few years in the event of resale,” she explains, citing Tuscany and Florence as being particularly attractive. “Florence is after Rome the second most visited and well-known city in Italy,” she continues. “Living in Tuscany means having good weather from March to November. The cities are full of interesting museums and the countryside is full of castles and historical villages to visit.” Enlisting the help of professionals familiar with specific countries is a given when making any big investment – and the Italian property market is no exception. Moreover, if you wish to undertake any rebuilding or renovation work then it pays to cultivate a calmness of character. “You need to be patient to undertake a restoration because Italian bureaucracy can be a minefield and a 78

lengthy process involving dealing with the Ministry of Culture,” explains Ms Bruce. On the plus side however, there are advantages. “It is worth bearing in mind that there is no capital gains in Italy after five years of ownership and inheritance taxes are some of the lowest in Europe,” she says. It can pay to invest in a property, take on extensive renovation work and sit on it for a number of years, safe in the knowledge that the tax implications and liability are less than in the UK or on the continent.”

Where to buy

When searching for your dream home, or the perfect investment in Italy, then the central region is still a good bet. “The Tuscan countryside is always very popular, especially

towns like Montepulciano, Pienza and San Gimignano,” advises Ms Gisti. “The Chianti area is always very much in demand, as are locations on the coast. Demand is also growing for properties located in the hills not far from cities like Florence and Siena.” Aylesford International is also seeing significant interest in traditionally popular places. “The luxury end of the property market in key areas of Italy has remained strong over the past couple of years,” says Ms Bruce. “Interest is particularly keen in the areas of Florence and Siena, the wine growing areas of the Chianti, Montepulciano and Montalcino, Lucca, Monte Argentario, Lake Como, the Costa Smeralda in Sardinia and Rome.” And it is not just houses that are attracting buyers, says Ms Gisti. “There is an increasing

requirement for commercial wineries, or villas with vineyards and olive groves, from people wanting to move to Tuscany and produce their own wine and oil.” Commercial ventures are popular with Asian and Russian buyers, says Ms Cvjetkovic. “Russians have purchased trophy assets, as well as vineyards and holiday homes on the Italian coast - Liguria and the Tuscan coast have been particularly popular, while at the ultra-high end, Sardinia is in the lead.”

Future perfect

So, where do you go if you’re looking for the next Italian idyll? As Ms Cvjetkovic points out, finding that elusive secret gem is not a certainty. “Italy is well discovered – it has been a travel destination since the Middle Ages with pilgrimages to Rome and therefore

finding up-and-coming areas is not easy.” She recommends travelling south. “One area international buyers should take a look at is Sicily – it has some amazing baroque architecture and a great climate”. For Fabrizio Vitellino, general manager and founder of Buy in Sicily, the island’s attraction lies in a combination of weather, culture and geography. “In Sicily we have sun, hospitality, history, food, the Etna Volcano, heritage Unesco locations and amazing views,” he enthuses. “Luxury properties in Sicily, in particular villas with direct access to the beach, are a very interesting investment because of the potential high rental return.” Popular areas currently and likely to remain so in the future include Ragusa, Modica, Taormina, Siracusa, Palermo and Modello, he adds.

According to Ms Bruce, “Up-and-coming destinations and places where viewers and potential buyers are showing strong interest are Le Marche, the Maremma area to the south of Tuscany and the rural areas of Lazio within easy reach of Rome.” Ms Gisti believes the less well-known Tuscan towns of Arezzo and Lucca will become increasingly popular thanks to their high standard of amenities, public services and transport connections, coupled with a vibrant social scene. “They offer a very good quality of life and the charm of living in a small, historic town, but with many facilities like international schools, services, good hospitals, restaurants and entertainment. They are also less touristy then the more popular areas.” International Property & Travel

Snow business The ever-increasing competition between ski resorts in prime destinations around the world means that those in search of a mountain property with all year round activities are even more spoilt for choice

T

he old nursery rhyme chants, ‘The north wind doth blow and we shall have snow’ – and when this happens it makes a lot of winter sports’ lovers very happy. However, those in the ski resort business are also naturally keen to encourage custom throughout all four seasons. Matthew Hodder-Williams, Associate, International Team at Knight Frank, comments, “Skiing has never been such big business – from the six-star hotels in Courchevel to the €400 million investment programme promised for the Chamonix Valley the biggest and brightest resorts have seen great changes over the last five years. Whilst Courchevel 1850 has been the domain of the super chalet for a number of years the Valley as a whole has not stood still, announcing a €100 million lift investment programme to further link its four villages encouraging new development in the lower villages of Courchevel 1650 and 1550 as well as a €20 million plus Aquatic Centre development. “Chalets of over 20,000 square feet are not unheard of and compare strongly with villages such as Megeve and Verbier where the owners of the super chalets mix and enjoy

the skiing, restaurants and amenities of these established and popular resorts. But we are seeing the luxury end of the chalet market expand into traditional ‘action’ destinations such as the Chamonix Valley where a new breed of chalet is being built; architecturally designed and of a size that would not be out of place on the Bellecote, the Sonalon or in the Jardin Alpin. Coupled with a promised €400 million plus investment, do not bet against seeing more super chalets spring up in these resorts – easily accessible to Geneva and all year round destinations.” International Property & Travel

THE SKI FACTOR Verbier is renowned as being one of the best resorts for advanced skiers, off-piste and après ski. Its stunning scenery offers skiers unlimited offpiste and great black runs. There is also a small snowpark with access to larger ones in nearby resorts.

THE SKI FACTOR Huntsman Springs has been named by National Geographic as one of the top emerging ski towns in the US at the skirts of the Teton Mountains. The ski resort of Grand Targhee, just 12 miles out of Driggs, catches an average of 500 inches of snow each year – the most of any ski area in the North American Rockies. With its safe terrain, consistently uncrowded slopes, and plentiful precipitation, it might well be the ultimate place to learn powder skiing. Just 42 miles from the world famous ski resort of Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Driggs is a less crowded, less expensive and more rustic ski town offering expansive scenic views. It has more than 2,000 acres, and 2,000 vertical feet of lift served terrain, and another 600 acres reserved for snow cat skiing on powder days only, thus guaranteeing perfect conditions. Its ski school also offers specialised powder instruction. Grand Targhee’s wide-open runs are perfect for intermediates, but the mellow 2.8 mile Teton Vista Traverse means that even beginners and young children can ride to the 9,862-foot summit to view the mighty Tetons. The ski resort of Jackson Hole is just 50 minutes away for an alternative and more challenging place to ski.

THE SKI FACTOR The town of Telluride is only about one square mile in size, with its nearest traffic light 37 miles away. Its picture-perfect, protected Victorian architecture is unassumingly hidden at 8,750 feet beneath the jagged and precipitous San Juan Mountains. A world-class ski resort, it also features internationally-renowned cultural festivals and events. On the other side of the ski area and connected by the free 13-minute gondola ride, Mountain Village is Telluride’s younger sibling and a community all of its own at 9,545 feet. Incorporated as a town in 1995 and abutting the mountain’s ski runs and four lifts, Mountain Village is considered the true ski area base. It’s also home to the Telluride Ski & Golf Company’s headquarters, the Telluride Golf Course, Telluride Ski & Snowboard School and most of the region’s large resort hotels.

W

hen the summer season at the Kulm Hotel St Moritz ended 150 years’ ago the owner, Johannes Badrutt, made a bold bet. He promised the last departing summer guests of 1864 a free stay from December to the following spring if their winter holiday in St Moritz was not as sunny and as pleasant as it had been over the summer. Tanned and full of enthusiasm, the British guests returned home the following spring and spread the word about their fantastic mountain winter at (what was then called) the Hotel Engadiner Kulm. 108

Ski Special.indd 13

Previously, St. Moritz had only been a popular summer holiday destination: a place to which people, mainly British who comprised about 75% of the guests, flocked for relaxing spa and painting holidays. Badrutt, however, could see the potential to extend the holiday season through the winter and this he did with his wager, laying the foundations for the creation of Alpine winter tourism. The Brits returned year after year and soon found ways to entertain themselves in the snow: sledding from the Kulm Hotel on to the frozen Lake St Moritz (leading to the creation of the

world-famous Cresta Run) and sliding down the mountain slopes on planks (the birth of downhill skiing). Badrutt, a legend within the Swiss hotel industry, had always been something of a pioneer. The Hotel Engadiner Kulm had been the village’s first hotel, opening

in 1856, thereby laying the foundations for the Swiss luxury hotel industry in the Alps. Then, in 1878, he had the country’s first electric lighting installed in the hotel’s ballroom as a novelty. Since the 19th century, the Kulm Hotel has changed considerably through

expansion and renovation but its fabulous location at the heart of St. Moritz with views over the lake remains the same. A member of The Leading Hotels of the World, it has 173 rooms, five restaurants, the Kulm Spa St. Moritz (with a 20 metre indoor pool with underwater music, saunas, steam room, Jacuzzi, fully-equipped gym and treatment rooms, all with stunning views over Lake St. Moritz) and six conference rooms. Entertainment and sports facilities include the 9-hole Kulm Golf Course St. Moritz, three tennis courts, a natural ice rink, a curling field and the Marmotta Club for children. The Kulm Hotel is also inextricably linked to the Cresta Run through the Sunny Bar, where tobogganing pilots have congregated for decades and its walls are lined with trophies and images of famous people who have hurled themselves down the infamous ice track.

Significant sales

In tandem with its exclusive Greenwich, CT, affiliate David Ogilvy & Associates, CIRE sold the 50-acre Copper Beech Farm in Greenwich, Connecticut, for $120 million in April 2014. At the time, this was the highest price ever for a single-family home in the United States. Copper Beech Farm was built in 1898 by the Lauder Greenway family, co-founders of U.S. Steel with Andrew Carnegie. ??? 112

“Leveraging our dynamic relationship with Christie’s allowed for a remarkable depth of international exposure to qualified potential buyers,” says Mr Conn. “Copper Beech Farm was promoted at auction houses around the world through video presentations, brochure galleries, magazine displays, interactive media exhibits, and a grand-scale window banner at Christie’s Rockefeller Center headquarters in New York.” As for the UK, Giles Hannah, senior vice president at Christie’s International Real Estate in London, says, “In the last 10 years the UK real estate’s business has changed considerably. The UK and in particular London has become the number one property market in the world in which to own property.

ounded in London in 1766 by James Christie, Christie’s is the world’s largest and most exclusive fine art business - Christie’s International Real Estate (CIRE) is the luxury residential property arm. Dan Conn, its CEO, says, “Christie’s entered the real estate business in 1995 to respond to the property needs of its high-net-worth clients. The marketing of fine art and luxury Dan Conn, CEO of CIRE, properties proved to be a natural based in New York combination, resulting in the world’s preeminent luxury marketing platform driven by the passion and values of Christie’s and the local expertise of seasoned brokers.” Today, CIRE has offices in London, New York, Hong Kong, Beverly Hills and Palm Beach and the network achieved a total sales volume of $106 billion in 2013. “Our network has 27,000 real estate professionals working in 140 affiliated brokerages across 46 countries,” explains Mr Conn, “offering collectors an even more extensive range of services at the top end of the market. As the only real estate network owned by a fine art auction house, this unique connection sets us apart from all other real estate competitors. “Christie’s International Real Estate has always focused on marketing high-end properties on a global scale. As a global network, we have been well-positioned to satisfy shifting global demand whether that entailed changing geographical focus or the demand for new and/or different lifestyle amenities. Our technology, for example, has adapted to these changes with an “Almost every high net worth individual worldwide now has the appetite

increasing emphasis on lifestyles reflected in our website and marketing materials. We also have the ability to market to highnet-worth and ultra-high-net-worth individuals irrespective of where we are in the economic cycle.” One notable example of CIRE’s response to the shifting emphasis on lifestyles was the launch of an innovative advisory service for buyers of international vineyards. “We brought together Christie’s fine wine experts with luxury property specialists from Christie’s International Real Estate to provide a consultative service to clients interested in the world’s most sought-after wine regions,” explains Mr Conn. “The programme was implemented to meet new demand from clients at Christie’s wine auctions, including auctions in Hong Kong and China. This is a service Christie’s and Christie’s International Real Estate are uniquely positioned to provide. “We have also developed programs focused on sales at the high end of the luxury market, for which we provide customised marketing services. This includes our Bespoke and Signature marketing programs, in addition to our newly launched Development Project Marketing (DPM) service, through which we advise, launch and market the world’s most distinctive residential developments and resorts worldwide. In each of these marketing programs, we are able to provide properties of great distinction with the expertise of – and exposure to Giles Hannah, senior vice president at CIRE in London – Christie’s auction house.” Mr Conn concludes by stating that CIRE intends to remain the leader in

St Nickolas by Vesper

Announcing Europe’s Best Property Professionals… With the revelation of our European award winners, we are now exactly half way through this year’s regional judging process. Over the following weeks our extensive panel of judges chaired by three active members of the UK’s House of Lords: Lord Caithness, Lord Best and Lord Courtown, will complete their search for companies excelling in flair, sustainability and innovation across the remaining regions. Meeting all these important requirements, ‘St Nickolas’ by Vesper won Best Renovation/Redevelopment. Located in one of the oldest streets in Moscow, this superbly renovated 19th century house successfully combines cultural heritage with the style and comfort of contemporary life. ‘Stejarii Country Club’ in Bucharest by S.C. Medusa Hotel International was awarded Best Leisure Development. As Romania’s first country club to include a full range of sports facilities, event rooms and an international spa, it features a green roof and is in the heart of a forest. The award for Best Residential Development went to ‘KÖY (The Village)’ in Istanbul by Siyahkalem. The low-rise project with approximately 1,000 properties and a commercial village centre has been meticulously planned down to every single detail. Many congratulations to these companies and all award winners listed within this publication. I would also like to take this opportunity to remind entrants that they are invited to take part in our forthcoming Property Summits in Dubai and again in London. Companies in related businesses as well as members of the public are also welcome to attend. Please visit our website www.propertyawards.net for dates, locations and how to register.

The Watercolours, Grand Cayman

Announcing The Americas’ Best Property Professionals… This year’s competition is really heating up as we reveal the winners from our second region of the world. During the next few weeks our extensive panel of judges chaired by three active members of the UK’s House of Lords: Lord Caithness, Lord Best and Lord Courtown, will complete their annual quest to find companies showing exemplary levels of innovation, flair and eco-awareness across the remaining regions. Fulfilling all these factors perfectly, Best Single Unit Property was won by ‘Idyll Moments’ at Royal Westmoreland in Barbados, which also took the crown of Best Golf Development. This aptly named villa features a superb layout, high quality finishes and every modern amenity within a stunning gated, golfing estate. The Watercolours in Grand Cayman was also successful in being awarded both Best Residential Development and Best Apartment. ‘Grand Residence’ is a palatial sevenbedroom apartment with panoramic views while the development itself is built to the highest specification and offers residents bespoke services. Best Apartment Interior Design went to ‘Espace St-Dominique’ in Montreal, Canada by Anne Sophie Goneau Design. This condominium within a 1920’s industrial building has been transformed into a monochromatic masterpiece. Many congratulations to these companies and all award winners listed within this publication. May I also remind entrants that they are invited to participate in our forthcoming Property Summits in Dubai and London. Companies in related businesses as well as members of the public are also welcome to attend. Please visit our website www.propertyawards.net for dates, locations and how to register.
