Welcome!

This is a very special issue for me as it’s the last complete magazine that I’ll be editing. After almost 16 years, I’ve decided now is the right moment to call it a day and enjoy some relaxation. My plans include travelling to several of the fabulous destinations I’ve featured in the magazine but not had enough time to explore fully. While it’s all very exciting, I will certainly miss my colleagues in the office and the buzz of the publishing world. Having compiled our special feature on the Southern Hemisphere, taking in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Argentina, these countries are definitely on my wish list for longer visits. This part of the world has so much to offer by way of stunning natural scenery, wildlife, wide open spaces and, of course, a wealth of superb properties. Heading to Europe, Portugal comes under our spotlight as an ideal choice for those looking for homes in the sunshine with the added bonus of world-class golf courses and endless opportunities for watersports. Our regular London feature focuses on Hampstead Heath and its surrounding areas which are perfect for those wishing to combine a more rural lifestyle with close proximity to the city. All that remains for me to do now is to wish a warm welcome to Michelle Winny who takes over as editor from the next issue.

here appear to be so many good reasons for living in the vicinity of Hampstead Heath that it’s difficult to know where to begin. Marc Schneiderman, director of Arlington Residential, comments, “As a long-time resident of Hampstead Village I do feel well qualified to vouch for its merits. Hampstead Heath for one, which is the nearest piece of ‘countryside’ London has in terms of proximity to Central London. Different areas of the 800-acre heath offer different atmospheres and appeal. “One of the principal attractions of living in Hampstead Village is the sense of community. Walking down Hampstead High Street, even from my house to Hampstead High Street, there will always be familiar faces and people I will stop and talk to. Villages tend to have a rich architectural history with Hampstead being no exception – architecture dates back to the reign of Queen Anne in the early 1700s. Current and past residents contribute significantly to creating a ‘village’ atmosphere. Hampstead in particular, has a long history of creative past residents particularly poets, artists, writers and musicians. This cultural and creative history still exists through its current residents. Blue plaques adorn many buildings adding to the area’s rich cultural heritage. “The tranquillity and green open spaces of Hampstead Garden Suburb are recognised by buyers and existing residents as assets that make the area unique to north west London. This is the closest rural location to central London that one can find with dozens of garden squares, communal gardens and green verges. The rural feel of the area is further enhanced with many of the houses facing, or within a few hundred yards of, 125 acres of former farmland known today as Hampstead Heath extension. “Managed and fiercely protected by the Hampstead Garden Suburb Trust, the area has maintained its authenticity and remains true to its original design. This is one of the reasons there is constant demand for properties with the Trust playing a pivotal role in alterations, planning consents and the retention of the »

original façades. Additionally, the majority of houses have large gardens, often in excess of half an acre.” Properties also represent excellent value for money in comparison with other parts of London. Trevor Abrahmsohn, founder and MD of super-prime agency Glentree, advises, “Today you can buy a property in Kenwood, Hampstead, for 20% of what it would cost you in the ‘golden triangle’ of Belgravia, Knightsbridge and Mayfair. There are hundreds of acres of heathland on your doorstep, two golf courses within walking distance, access to the finest schools and hospitals, with the West End only being a 15-minute drive away and a private/ public airport within half an hour. “The properties themselves are surrounded by land which could be up to 11 acres and the area is surrounded by leafy flora that, effectively, renders the property a cross between a country estate and a town house. It ticks all the boxes for luxury, sophisticated family living and, thanks to Stamp Duty and the cheap Pound, these properties can be bought for an aggregate of 50% discount from values that would have been paid four to five years ago. It is a melting pot of eclectic cultures and is Britain at its best.” Guy Meacock, director of buying agency Prime Purchase, also points out that Hampstead is a heavily schoolsdriven market with a strong appeal to international buyers. “This is partly because of the American school but also because its houses tend to have larger footprints than those found in central London, which is why it appeals to a lot of Americans and Canadians. The property market has been very steady here for a while. It was badly hit when many Americans deserted London post-credit crunch but we are now seeing them return, for the currency play as well. It has offered value for quite some time. “Central London is still do-able for commuters with a tube station on the Northern Line and Hampstead Heath mainline station. Hampstead gives you a bit of separation – if you are working in town, it can feel quite different, like countryside but in the city.”

Heath End House, Hampstead Heath, NW3

Constructed circa 1778, this fine Grade II listed Georgian residence boasts an array of illustrious owners, including Dame Henrietta (founder of Hampstead Garden Suburb) and Canon Samuel Barnett (social reformer) between 1899-1913 as their country retreat. Novelist and playwright Sir Hall Caine made structural alterations to the property in 1923, followed by reconfiguration works in 1955 to a layout largely resembling the house as it stands today. The accommodation is spectacular, some rooms take in a view of the lovely mature gardens, others have far reaching views from this elevated position abutting Hampstead Heath. The house offers seven bedrooms, although two are currently used as reception rooms, and four bathrooms. Its secluded setting provides privacy and tranquillity, allowing places to unwind around the garden in either the summer house, studio or beside the pond. £5.5m / €6m / $6.65m Hamptons International

Sofitel London St James Due for completion at the end of this year, the ongoing renovations at this five-star hotel are already revealing inspired designs by Pierre-Yves Rochon

G

uests staying at Sofitel London St James can explore the city freely due to the hotel’s supremely central location at the corner of Pall Mall and Waterloo Place. Its bedrooms and suites have been redesigned by world-renowned interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon, who created the original interior design for the hotel. Working closely with the hotel team, he has transformed the guest rooms, suites and public spaces with a sensitive mix of modern French luxury – a hallmark of his work – while preserving its rich British heritage and charm.

The 183 guestrooms and suites will be transformed to feel more like a French apartment than a hotel, with design touches that also reflect the hedonism and creativity of 1960’s London society. Rooms have been designed with clever elements such as a living/dining table to seat two, replacing a standard hotel room desk, offering a residential feel and also acknowledging that the line between leisure and business travel has become more and more blurred. Gallic elements include nods to the iconic French furniture designer of the 60s and early 70s, Pierre Paulin, and the clean lines found in his designs are translated throughout. Rooms include some of his signature seating styles, including ‘the mushroom chair’. The British heritage of St James’ is brought to life through tartan carpets and custom-designed lamps, all of which have consequently been given a fun, colourful and modern twist to reflect the hotel’s modernity. Pop-art style artwork will adorn the walls, with a mix of abstract pieces and images of iconic British celebrities of the 1960s. What’s more, the renovation also includes the launch of Wild Honey St James, the hotel’s new signature restaurant spearheaded by Anthony Demetre. www.sofitelstjames.com

arosliget’s architects and designers can think of their work on this building as a gift to the world. It is a part of Liget Budapest – Europe’s largest urban cultural development. And, as one of Europe’s first

ethnographic institutions, the museum’s collections comprise more than 200,000 items from the Carpathian Basin and every corner of the globe. Using state-of-the-art technology and a flexible space, the museum needed to house and present the cultural diversity of humanity – no small feat! The building needed to be respectful of the surrounding historical green spaces of the City Park, while also creating a powerful architectural presence that was capable of boosting international awareness of Budapest and Hungarian culture. The museum has been in operation since 1872 and has been redesigned to become a place which is a national treasure, where all members of society can return to, time and time again. It also contains archived documents and more than 400,000 historical photographs. The exhibition hall plays an important role in representing the value

As the address indicates, this is a location that is recognised worldwide as London’s finest. For centuries, Mayfair has enjoyed the reputation of an aristocratic playground and is the prestigious setting for private mansions, embassies and luxurious hotels. It is surrounded by London’s famous parks, shopping streets and cultural landmarks, thus being conveniently accessible to and from all of London’s airports for international connections. Despite being conceived in the mid-18th century, 11 Queen Street expresses the modernity of evolutionary generations. Mayfair is highly sought after, and for good reason. Few other London neighbourhoods can count such a celebrated array of restaurants, shops and hotels as local attractions. Many of London’s Michelin-star restaurants are in Mayfair: Le Gavroche, Hibiscus and The Greenhouse, to name but three. Grand hotels, upholding standards of old-style glamour, include The Connaught, The Dorchester and The Berkeley; all of which have Michelin-star restaurants too. As for shopping in ultimate style, Harrods and Harvey Nichols are within one mile, and there are more temptations in the exclusive boutiques of Bond Street, Jermyn Street and South Audley Street.

MCLEAN LIVING

In his new book, McClean Design: Creating the Contemporary House, the Irish-born architect takes us behind the scenes of 21 of his ultra-modern homes completed in the past 15 years. The reader is granted access to his vision for each project, from design

strategies to sketches. Prepare to be swept into a world of not only sleek contemporary architecture, but also of lavish features such as champagne vaults, wine cellars, cigar rooms and movie theatres. The book follows the architect’s journey to prominence from his Bird Streets’ home in the Hollywood Hills to the Bel-Air home of Beyoncé and Jay Z. With his designs, Mr McClean strives for simplicity with expansive views. He places an emphasis on texture and natural materials with the homes he creates and his firm is committed to environmentally sustainable design practices. “We try to create spaces that are uplifting but do not dominate,” explains Mr McClean, “strong enough to engage with the site and the landscape, but quiet enough not to get in the way of everyday life.” Published by Rizzoli Electa £55

Redefining hospitality in the Aegean Kerzner International Holdings and Dolphin Capital Partners are currently developing One&Only Kéa Island in Greece. Situated in a 60-hectare beachfront site on the west side of Kéa Island, the ultra-luxury development on the Aegean Sea will encompass 75 resort villas, as well as a limited number of One&Only Private Homes for purchase. As part of the brand’s strategic expansion, One&Only Kéa Island will be the second One&Only resort in Europe following the opening of One&Only Portonovi in Montenegro in 2020, and is primed to set new standards for excellence in the Aegean. Kerzner has plans to continue to grow and develop the One&Only brand globally, while Dolphin Capital Partners, will maintain the management of the project and the sales of the private homes. The total investment of the project is €150 million and it is a joint venture between Dolphin Capital Investors, Dolphin Capital Partners, Heah&Co. and Kerzner International.

New acquisition Award-winning developer Vanderbilt Homes has announced the acquisition of Southampton-based Crayfern Homes which creates high quality houses and apartments in Dorset, Hampshire and West Sussex.

by the historic transportation of Port wine. Its curving shapes are reminiscent of the overlapping barrels stacked in rabelo boats, traditional Portuguese wooden cargo vessels, which were used for centuries along the Douro River. Bateye describes it as ‘a mirror that reflects more than the silhouette of those who observe it and reflects some of the history of the wine and the city of Porto’. Cask can be lacquered in black or white or plated in copper, silver or gold.

DELIGHTFUL DECANTERS ustrian heritage glassware brand Riedel has been reiterating the importance of decanting all wines, whether red, white, young or old, as well as champagne for years. Every decanter is unique, made by hand and mouth-blown from crystal glass. The Amadeo decanter has been one of the icons of Riedel’s decanter collections ever since it was introduced in 2006. It has undergone several reinterpretations while always keeping its typical lyre-shaped design. Modelled after a musical horn’s coiled shape,

A slice of your family tree

Heirloom boxes by designer-maker Edward Johnson are a contemporary twist on a traditional family tree,

designed to evoke a slice through a tree trunk. Handmade from hundreds of thin strips of timber, the curved pattern represents the annual growth rings of a tree, with darker woods symbolising each family member’s year of birth. The family tree concept is subtly interwoven into Edward’s awardwinning ‘Murano’ veneer process. The radial pattern is formed by cutting, bending and meticulously configuring hundreds of strips of timber. Giving careful consideration to tone and contrast, the dark fumed oak core symbolises the grandparent’s year of birth, with the subsequent dark oak £5,600 / €6,220 / $6,860

Rembrandt’s Light Until February 2nd, 2020 at the Dulwich Picture Gallery, London, UK www.dulwichpicturegallery.org.uk

Bringing to a close the celebrations of the 350th anniversary of the death of Rembrandt van Rijn, the Dulwich Picture Gallery in South East London has created an atmospheric display for the famed master of light. Unusually, this has involved a collaboration with the cinematographer, Peter Suschitzky, famed for his work on Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. Suschitzky advised on how to use light to create an ‘atmospheric exhibition experience’. Thirty-five of Rembrandt’s works, including some of the best known paintings, etchings and drawings with loans from The Louvre and Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum, focus on the period from 1639– 1658 when Rembrandt lived in Amsterdam, in a house that is now a museum of his works. In the light-infused studio of what he called ‘an ideal home’, he created some of his most famous masterpieces.

Since that date, the objects which were revealed have come to be among the world's most cherished ancient artifacts. The golden coffin of the young pharaoh who briefly ruled Egypt from around 1332 - 23 BC is not among the exhibits.

Laid-back dining

Chris Browne and Debra Fox, co-owners of Fox Browne Creative ur brief for the project Sirai Beach in Kenya was to create varied dining experiences that allowed for both informal and formal dining experiences and also related to sense of place. As it is a coastal home, laid-back dining was key.

Because the house faces East, delicious healthy breakfasts are served indoors in the cool of the dining room as the sun streams through the huge open windows kept cool by the gentle ocean breeze. The two big square tables work for guests waking and enjoying breakfast at different times. The space had to be light and airy in the day time and atmospheric at night when set for dinner.

In addition to the dining room we also created an al fresco dining terrace lightly shaded by day by the boughs of the ancient trees. A custom-made table, designed with an ice trench running along its length keeps wine perfectly chilled for long lazy lunches or balmy coastal evenings. The epitome of relaxed holiday dining! Designed like a contemporary bush farmhouse, &Beyond Phinda Homestead in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa is both elegant and homely. Inspired by the landscape and the local Zulu culture, we used basketwork, pottery, locally woven carpets and textiles to celebrate the talent of local artisans. Indoors and outdoors had to flow seamlessly and the indoor dining room had to be comfortable and cosy for families. The interactive kitchen brings the lodge’s private chef into the centre of the guest experience but the big sliding wooden doors allow for privacy when the guests need it. www.foxbrowne.com

In high-end properties, the heart of the home is the dining room

Tell a story

Susan White, founder of Iggi Interior Design e know that everyone thinks that the kitchen is the ‘heart of the home’, but we beg to differ. In high-end properties, the heart of the home is the dining room. This is the formal space that the family will entertain in, yes, some might end up in the kitchen after dinner, but entertaining is still predominantly done in the dining room. This means that dining rooms need to perform a few different tasks. All guests need to be seated comfortably, there needs to be space for staff to move around and serve, and there needs to be a buffet area which can be used for food and drinks. In addition, the dining room needs to tell a story, and depending on who the client is, this could be conveying status, conforming to cultural guidelines, showing off prized artworks or highlighting the architecture and/or the building the room is situated in. When we design dining rooms, we collect all this information from a client and more. We also take into account the neighbouring rooms

to ensure that there is a visual flow between the rooms. Having designed rooms for royalty, celebrities and CEOs we’re very aware that entertaining is key to their lifestyles. In our Jordan project, we needed multiple dining rooms throughout the property, ranging from very formal to casual, giving the family multiple options when entertaining. However, our UK South Coast beach house project needed a large table in the middle of the building so it was a natural congregation point for all the guests in the house. One of our biggest tips is to invest in a multifunction table, definitely one that can expand. But if you’ve got a particularly large room, think about getting two tables so that you can create one very large table or use the two separate tables in different ways. www.iggi.co.uk

Sean Cassar, Design Hub Malta

The space allocation of a dining area is fundamentally the most important, considering traffic routes within the area

dining zone can act as an interior design concept signature. Mostly used for formal entertaining or family gatherings, it is a statement from the home owner on how they expect their guests to feel when being entertained. Nowadays, we tend to opt for a more open plan integration with dining area positioning, unless it is a mansion with multiple large rooms which can offer more options. Shown here are three different dining areas to give an idea of how a mix of materials, design concepts and functions can create comfort to entertain guests or hold a more formal gathering within a signature design area. Each one of these designs was tailor designed to the client following a study made on their brief, the building’s schematics and its location in the world. The Scandinavian meets Maltese rustic design focuses on the warmth of timber floors, Maltese tiles and rustic limestone walls engulfed in structural steel beams and with a craft minimalist white wash. The cantilevered dining table is made of solid oak and offers

increased circulation space, while there is a fun multi-tier bar in the background. A quirky fireplace helps warm up the space and also gives a feature to catch the eye. The more minimalist neutral design captures lines and floating elements within the room. A large wall-to-wall mirror helps give the room extensive depth, reflecting a floating cantilevered television unit back to back with a painting installation. The extendable option to the table in this case can increase the floor surface area when using on a daily basis. Increasingly contemporary designs can play with modern lines while also throwing in splashes of classic pieces. This gives off a particular boutique yet warm and presentable formal dining room. The space allocation of a dining area is fundamentally the most important, considering traffic routes within the area. One must keep in mind the space needed for diners to get up comfortably from their chairs even if, by chance, another person is walking behind them. Lighting and general ambient features can also help to enhance the space and make it that bit more functional and comfortable to use. www.designhubmalta.com

Artistic Aventador During Monterey Car Week in California, Automobili Lamborghini presented a unique Aventador S interpreted by the art of Skyler Grey, the young American artist considered the rising star of world street art. The one-off Aventador S symbolises the fusion of two artistic concepts: on one hand the automotive art of Lamborghini, where the unique design form, always characterised by taut lines, threedimensional volumes, and geometries and stylistic elements of the past is combined with groundbreaking technological solutions. On the other hand, the art of Skyler Grey. At just 19 years old, his iconographic pop style has often brought him comparisons to artists such as Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, and Jean-Michel Basquiat. www.lamborghini.com

Peak performance The successor to the original Audi RS 7 brings 600PS and 800Nm to bear.

Available in the UK in ‘standard’ and top tier Vorsprung forms, the latest addition to the fast-growing Audi Sport stable is set to reach its first customers in early 2020. “The RS 7 Sportback is our interpretation of a five-door high-performance coupé with a grand tourer design,” says Oliver Hoffmann, managing director of Audi Sport GmbH. “With refinements to make it even more suitable for everyday use plus its incredible performance, what we have here is an outstanding piece of sports equipment for customers who like their cars to feature stunning design.” From £90,000

Additional factors to evaluate include technology and connectivity requirements; entertainment and activity amenities; engine preference and configuration; and seating and sleeping capacity.” Two of the most recently designed Sea Rays are the SLX 400 and the SLX-R 350 Outboard. “As a first-of-its-kind model,” explains Mr Langlais, “the SLX-R features elevated design elements and innovative technologies now paired with the unmatched power and performance of Mercury Racing 450R dual engines. In addition to the new Mercury Racing 450R engines, SLX-R technology highlights include an exclusive helm display, state-of-theart systems and a premier marine audio system with a full-size screen for the » ultimate in technologically advanced sound.” 82

offers a relaxing area with plush seating, a TV and air-conditioning. The SLX 400, ‘The Entertainer’, is yacht-certified, and its best-in-class layout has seating for 22 passengers and an abundance of storage space. Fit and finish are superior, with premium upholstery and a purity of line and form. Below deck, a generous cabin creates a comfortable space to escape the elements, relax or spend the night. One of the most notable features on the SLX 400 Outboard is the fold-down swim terrace, a brilliantly designed wing of the hull on the starboard side that opens 90 degrees to expand the cockpit all the way to the water. A plush sun pad extends the width of the transom and features a converting backrest that opens to face the swim terrace. The bow offers ample seating and a sunshade. As for technology, highlights include Mercury’s Joystick Piloting, an advanced digital dash helm offering dual 16-inch touchscreen displays with digital switching.

Ring berth rates Latest reports are indicating that superyacht berths are becoming increasingly attractive investments. Traditionally, the South of France might be considered a location where owners are guaranteed to generate high berth profits with marina spaces frequently sold at prices above that of the initial investment. One prime example, according to James Munn, sales and charter broker with Northrop & Johnson, is a 30-metre

berth in the South of France that cost £225,000 in the 1970s and was later sold for £12 million in the 1990s when demand outstripped supply. However, this demand seen in traditional areas is decreasing, making way for the rise in popularity of other European destinations. Interestingly, a recent study published by Bloomberg revealed that Spain has the largest superyacht fleet in Europe totalling 133. This sharp rise in popularity follows the ability of superyachting marinas in Spain now being able to accommodate for the global demand of larger superyachting berths. One marina that is proactive in satisfying this demand is OneOcean Port Vell. Originally built ahead of the 1992 Olympic Games, OneOcean Port Vell underwent a dramatic transformation in recent years and is today home to 150 luxury berths catering for yachts up to 190 metres. Proof of its rising attractiveness has

been evident during the past years having witnessed an increase of 85% in the number of superyachts over 80 metres visiting the marina. The Superyacht Intelligence Agency predicts that the current fleet of 60 metre plus yachts will exceed 500 units within the next seven years with Spain alone, set to be home to the highest number of berths (90 metres plus) which can cater to this fleet. With larger berths of this size unavailable across traditional superyachting marinas and an unprecedented number of 60 metre plus superyachts currently in construction, it will not be long until the number of large superyachts will exceed the number of Mediterranean berths that can accommodate them. As demand outstrips supply, marinas like OneOcean Port Vell will offer attractive investment opportunities for new owners. www.oneoceanportvell.com

Sun-kissed The thought of owning a home bathed in sunshine for most of the year and within easy access of an abundance of superb beaches is making Portugal extremely popular with prospective buyers

R

ecent figures show that over the last three years Portugal has seen steady growth in demand and prices in the high-end property sector. However, it’s interesting to note that this has been limited to prime areas that are of interest to the foreign rather than the domestic market. Charles Roberts, managing partner of Fine & Country Portugal, comments, “In terms of Lisbon and Porto the prime areas are the historic centres of each city as well as the Central Business Districts. The areas of Cascais and Estoril have always been the equivalent of Britain’s Stockbroker Belt as well as the chosen destination for wealthy foreigners seeking upmarket lifestyle options within striking distance of the capital city. The Comporta area south of Lisbon with its huge expanse of virgin beaches combined with very strong environmental protection laws has become the holiday home choice of those seeking a rustic paradise within one hour of Lisbon’s airport.” The driving factors have been numerous. “Of course,” continues Mr Roberts, “Portugal’s Golden Visa scheme has proved a major attraction to wealthy individuals from countries considered as being politically, religiously or economically unstable. Clients opting for the Golden Visa are securing a five-year Residency Permit valid throughout the Schengen area by purchasing a property at above €500,000. After five years they can apply for a Portuguese passport. They are in effect taking out a Plan B in the case

that things fall apart in their home country. This has proved popular with investors from Eastern Europe, South Africa, Nigeria, Northern Africa, the Middle East, China and Hong Kong as well as Brazil.” Another driving factor has been the Portuguese Non-Habitual Tax Residency Scheme whereby a foreigner can change his country of tax residency to Portugal, guarantee to spend a minimum of 183 days a year in Portugal and in return he will be taxed in Portugal and his home country at 0% on all pension and investment income. “This benefit is guaranteed for a minimum period of 10 years,” explains Mr Roberts, “and has proved hugely popular with high net worth individuals from high tax countries especially the likes of France and Scandinavia as well as the UK. “The third driving factor has basically been the realisation on the part of wealthy foreigners that Portugal has a lifestyle to offer that could be considered as second to none. A temperate all year-round climate, excellent beaches and leisure facilities, first-class health care, a low crime rate, superb international schools and universities, little or no religious frictions, a stable economy, excellent gastronomic and cultural options and competitive prices in terms of property and living expenses in comparison with other European 86

cities. This is further emphasised by the excellent airline connections to all of Europe, the Middle East, South America and Southern Africa from Lisbon and Porto as well as the fact that Portuguese culture welcomes foreigners with open arms along with excellent language skills particularly English, French and Spanish. “All of the above has done much to convince foreigners that Portugal offers an overall lifestyle of far better quality than their country of origin and that the price of acquiring a property is still possible at competitive prices combined with a realistic expectation of healthy capital appreciation. Our view is that as long as the above conditions pertain, we see no reason why the trend of gradually increasing prices driven by continued high demand, should not continue for the foreseeable future.”

Going for gold

According to Peter Statham of Chestertons International in Portugal, 70-80% of buyers at the high end of the property market in the Algarve are British, followed by an equal mix of Germans, Dutch, Swiss, Russian. “There are small amounts of French and Irish at this lower end too,” says Mr Statham. “The sought-after areas are the usual ones in the ‘Golden Triangle’ which includes Quinta do Lago, Vale do Lobo and Vilamoura with prices generally starting from €1.3 million for three-bedroom frontline apartments, and €4-5million for a three to four-bedroom frontline villa, with some selling beyond four times this value.” Chestertons is also seeing increased demand in Lagos, which has seen one of the largest areas of demand growth over the last five years. “Its popularity has been fuelled by its all year-round appeal, its cultural appeal, its access to unspoilt beaches and being one of the media hotspots for tourism in the Algarve,” explains Mr Statham. “Three-bedroom frontline townhouses for example start from around €1.2 million, whilst a new build front line villa can go in excess of €10 million. However, these are very rare unlike in the Golden Triangle where these values are more common. You can also buy an attractive older frontline villa for around €1,695,000 in Lagos. “Another area of interest includes Carvoeiro and the coastal area surrounding this town. Prices are much the same as Lagos but as the availability of luxury property in this area has dropped considerably in the last few years, these homes do not come to the market so regularly and so the area has a high demand when they do. Prices are still increasing at the higher end of the market, albeit at a slower rate this year than in the last three to four years, but the main reason for the continued price rises is because the availability of good, in-demand properties is decreasing.”

Casa Fuzetta, Olhao, Eastern Algarve A member of White Line Hotels, this villa is only available as a private rental. With elements dating back to the 16th century, the principal building was commissioned as a townhouse by Dr Carlos Fuzeta at the end of the 19th century. Dr Fuzeta was a maritime lawyer, philosopher and philanthropist, and was honoured by the town with a large plaque on the house. After his death, house was split up and fell into disrepair. Now, following a two-year restoration, Casa Fuzetta has been restored as a private house, with the engineering of a small hotel. It has 12 en suite double bedrooms and offers flexible spaces including a rooftop pool and yoga decks, two massage/treatment rooms and multiple terraces. The prices below are for accommodation only per night based on a minimum rental of five nights (increasing to a minimum of seven nights in July and August and over Christmas/New Year).

Dá Licença

This exceptional hotel in Outeiro das Freiras opened in March this year within a beautiful estate on the edge of Estremoz. Here, art encounters nature and guests will be overwhelmed by the generosity of the space, the vast landscape and warm welcome

I

ntegrated into a national eco-reserve, the Dá Licença estate consists of 120 hectares of hills and over 13,000 olive trees planted on land rich in the region’s white and pink marble. Uniquely positioned, it has views of the forest of Serra d’Ossa, Evoramonte, Estremoz and a number of small Alentejo villages. The hotel consists of three buildings featuring a total of five suites and three bedrooms with extraordinary areas – 50 and 180 m² – all elegantly decorated. Bathrooms are spacious with hand-sculpted marble sinks, while two of them have fabulous marble bath tubs. Complete with courtyards, small private gardens and lovely terraces, each bedroom has its own charm. There are arts and crafts everywhere, ranging from monumental pieces in a bathroom to sculptures as you turn a corner in the garden. To assemble the collection has taken a lifetime of discovery by the owners, with pieces acquired all over Europe, on a journey that takes guests to France, Norway, Finland, Italy and Portugal. The main building, with a central courtyard, is composed of common areas, a dining room, several other

rooms, a suite and two bedrooms. In a place like the Alentejo, the presence of water is essential, hence there is a perfectly round swimming pool that reflects the colours of the light and surrounding nature. There is also a more discreet emerald green infinity pool for guests’ private use. Local produce from the surrounding area or from Estremoz market gives the kitchen its theme while the dedication put into breakfast is already well known. The produce changes as the seasons come and go, but it includes Alentejo-style bread, delicious homemade cake,

yoghurts, granola and the famous cold meats of Dom Octávia. For lunch and dinner, the menu is a surprise once guests have advised staff of their likes, dislikes and any food allergies. Set below ground level and before entering the hotel itself, there is an old oil press which has been converted into a gallery featuring a private art collection. This beautiful renovated space with room for 30 people will be the future home of a restaurant with a terrace for al fresco eating at lunch and dinner. www.dalicenca.pt

omprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania and several smaller islands, the sovereign country of Australia has much to offer. One of the largest countries in the world, it lies between the Pacific and Indian Oceans and is famous for its wide-open spaces and wealth of natural wonders. Regarding Sydney, Darren Curtis of Ken Jacobs Real Estate, affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate, says, “We have seen a depressed market over the last 12 – 18 months here in Sydney. This has mainly been caused due to a Royal Commission into banking behaviour and the knock-on effect of the bank’s willingness to lend; the announcement of Federal and State Elections (now passed) and the continual stemming of capital outflow from Mainland China by the Chinese Government. “All of these points came at the same time and meant that, whilst many (if not all) had money to spend, there was a lot of indecision and waiting around seeing what happened impacting the market and reducing the number of transactions. However, we are now entering our spring market and confidence has certainly returned with transactions increasing. The troubles in Hong Kong and buyers from Mainland China now having arranged funds means we are seeing a definite increase in enquiry from this sector once again. “Sydney is still seen as a Blue Chip destination where the schooling, clean air, blue water and higher living standards are seen as the main draws. In the past Australia’s distance or location has been seen as a negative, it is now seen as a positive and the property market is able to reap the benefits of this. “The weaker Australia dollar has also meant interest from overseas buyers remains strong. It is my understanding many of the Mainland Chinese deal in USD so with the AUD now sitting at around 0.67c, they are making automatic savings on what they would have had to spend four, five or six years ago. Since the elections in May this year, we have seen renewed confidence and an increase in transactions.”

his sovereign country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean is comprised of the North and South Islands together with approximately 600 smaller islands. Natural scenery abounds here with everything from volcanoes and mountains to glaciers and rainforests. Regarding Auckland, Barfoot & Thompson’s managing director Peter Thompson, says, “Utilising the current Real Institute of New Zealand (REINZ) data for the residential Auckland region for sales over $3.5 million and looking at the last 12 months, August 2018 – 2019 compared to August 2017- 2018, we can glean a few trends related to the luxury property market. “First, a steep decrease can be seen in the number of sales of high-end properties by 25% during this period. This could be attributed to a lack of listings within this price range or changes in laws related to overseas buyers. A small increase can, however, be seen in the average sale price by +2% and the median sale price by +5%. “The most popular suburbs of New Zealand’s largest city that emerged were the traditional city fringe/bays areas. Properties in the eastern suburb of Auckland stand out as having the greatest number of high-end property sales by a large margin. The implication is that proximity to the Auckland City, top school zones, shopping services and lifestyle options continue to be important considerations for buyers in this segment and also influence desirability in these neighbourhoods.”

The Sentinel, Takapuna Beach, Auckland

Currently the city's tallest home, Apartment 2901 offers 668m2 of elite living space. This includes massive decked areas offering 360 degree views over the city, Waitemata Harbour and iconic Rangitoto, the outdoor living complemented with heated lap pool and spa. Spread over two levels, the lower floor has three large living spaces and features a soaring atrium and back-lit onyx wall, a gas fireplace warms the home theatre and gym area, and there is a huge designer kitchen. Upstairs are three bedrooms, all with beautiful en suite bathrooms, two of which have their own large private deck. Security is ensured with elevator access directly to the apartment from the lobby, complete with concierge service, or from the security gated garage, with its four parking spaces and three storage lockers. The Sentinel itself also offers an additional 25 metre heated pool, sauna, spa, gym and barbecue facility. Price by negotiation Barfoot & Thompson

ocated on the southernmost tip of the African Continent, South Africa is renowned for its Kruger National Park, Table Mountain, lush winelands and big game safaris. Dating back to 1783, Val de Vie Estate featured here is rich in history and forms part of a larger World Heritage Site. The pristine surrounding landscapes include majestic mountain ranges, expansive lakes, vineyards, olive groves, lush polo fields, farms and beautifully landscaped gardens. Modelled on French Provençal and Cape Vernacular styles, the architecture of homes, apartments and commercial office space portrays the allure of the estate’s history while offering residents world-class modern living. Despite challenging macro-economic factors and the Western Cape drought, almost all of Val de Vie Estate’s developer stands have been sold out. The intention to sell 2,000 stands on the super estate of which Val de Vie, Val de Vie Phase 2 and Pearl Valley form part, has shown exceptional growth of over 200% over the past five years. Ryk Neethling, marketing director and shareholder at Val de Vie Estate, says, “The accelerated rate of sales can largely be attributed to the estate’s reputation as the safest in Africa, the world class lifestyle on offer and the diverse property portfolio. The scale of Val de Vie Estate’s security and lifestyle options are unrivalled elsewhere in South African estate living.” 110

Argentina

C

overing almost the entire southern half of South America, Argentina is a land of many regions. These range from sun drenched beaches to caps of polar ice, vast mountain ranges, magnificent plains and subtropical forests. Andrew Amos, agent at Remind Group, affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate, says, “The lifestyle in Argentina is like nowhere else, with significant similarities to first world western countries in terms of culture, technology and development but affected by years of political disorder and misconduct. This has led the country to a continuous struggle to maintain its society at peace and the economy at acceptable levels. “I must say that the second home is not performing as expected, given the volatility of the local currency. The main cities for this HNWI’s urban segment are Buenos Aires, Mendoza and Bariloche, where you find modern apartments with prices per square metre ranging from £4,000 to £10,000. “For rural estates with luxurious homesteads, the range is wider considering the ample variety of destinations for ranches, farms and estancias in areas such as the Pampas or Patagonia. Consequently, prices start from £250 per hectare for huge sheep farms to £35,000 per hectare in fertile agricultural farms close to the capital. Domestic buyers mainly come from Buenos Aires, and search for opportunities, while foreign buyers seeking for luxury homes proceed from the USA and western European countries and lately from Arab and Middle Eastern countries. “Patagonia in particular is attractive for high net worth individuals. It has a long history as one of the top destinations for those seeking a hidden retreat, ever since the end of WWII, when the government granted asylum to many Europeans. The reasons vary from the similarity to their home land, the remote and pristine locations and a low population density. However, the main reason for their choice is the possibility to live on huge tracts of land including mountains, rivers, lakes and breathtaking views. Price predictions at this time of the year are unforeseen, however, considering the current values found in the local luxury home market, the segment has much to grow.”
