Working on this special equestrian edition has been just like old times as my first editorship was for a horse magazine. I trained to be a riding instructor at Porlock Vale Equestrian Centre in Somerset and, having spent many happy years teaching alongside freelance writing, I decided to enter the world of publishing full time. Gradually progressing through titles on crafts, slimming, natural health, speciality food and hotels, I eventually turned my attention to property. A great subject that gives a fascinating insight into new developments around the world, sustainable construction methods, state-of-the-art technology and interior design trends. Talking of which, we’re sourced a selection of prime properties in ideal locations – either with superb equestrian facilities or close to racecourses or polo fields. There’s no doubt about it, having your horse or horses stabled at home is a distinct advantage whether you ride competitively or just for fun. You can be tacked up and riding on a whim within minutes, schooling, practising your dressage test or showjumping in your own manège or indoor arena – sheer bliss! However, even if you are surrounded by a horse mad family but are of the opinion that horses are dangerous at both ends and uncomfortable in the middle, I am confident that all the other fabulous amenities at our featured ranches and equestrian estates cannot fail to please.

Galloping home

England’s ‘green and pleasant land’ proves a perfect hunting ground

for equestrian estates with every imaginable amenity for horses as well as their owners

Picture: Hill Farm, Barnadiston, Suffolk see page 18


iving in the heart of the English countryside with your horses stabled on the premises is the ultimate dream for many avid riders. However, before you take the plunge there are several considerations that will make both the land and stable management easier in the long run. Sarah Broughton of buying agency Prime Purchase, advises, “When buying a property with equestrian facilities, one of the most important facts to ascertain is whether the land is light or heavy. If it is light, it will be better in winter than heavy soil but the downside is that it is not so good in summer as you don’t get as good grass. If it is heavy it can get very soggy and waterlogged so check what drainage it has. Heavy soil does not need to be ruled out entirely, however, as it can be improved dramatically with the right drainage.” Isolation is imperative if you are taking in horses from other yards or countries and biosecurity is becoming more important as horses travel further. “The isolation yard needs to be a proper distance away from the main yard and preferably with a separate entrance,” continues

Ms Broughton. “The layout of the paddocks is important whatever the equestrian element – too far from the stables and you could spend all day walking the horses to and from the yard. Check the hedging: if you get a bitter easterly wind, is there protection for horses in the winter? Shelters are also important – not only to keep rain and snow off in the winter but also for shade in the summer if there are no trees in the paddocks. Footpaths are definitely a negative and should be avoided if possible.” Properties with full equestrian facilities are in huge demand as livery costs are so expensive, and often fetch a premium. Charlie Wells, managing director of Prime Purchase, says, “Prices for equestrian homes »

vary widely and it’s worth bearing in mind that you may end up spending a significant amount on updating the facilities to your own specifications. One of my clients bought a property with £1.5m of equestrian facilities and completely remodelled it, spending £4m, for eventing. But the facilities are now good enough to train for the Olympics. Equestrian facilities can date relatively quickly: if they are used hard over 10 or 15 years, they will need replacing. If you don't update such facilities, this will affect the value when you do come to sell. “The more specialist the equestrian set-up, the narrower the resale market. You may be able to charge more but there will be fewer interested buyers. Someone who rides for a hobby and has children at Pony Club might require no more than a nice house with some stables and a paddock. If you have racehorses you will need much more specialist facilities while ‘jump’ and ‘flat’ yards do not make good three-day event yards.” Mr Wells also stresses the importance of checking the quality of riding out and hacking in the area. “Roads can be busy so check that you can safely ride on them and ensure you can go from country lanes to bridle paths, ideally without crossing a busy main road,” he says. “And finally ensure you have sufficient access through the village with a large horsebox. Access might be fine during the day when your neighbours are at work but when there are plenty of cars double-parked along the lane, will you be able to get through?”

Ascot Park Polo Club, Chobham, Surrey

Available as a whole or in two lots, Lot 1 includes fabulous grounds with planning approval for a new mansion house. With an estimated 27,307 square feet of living space and leisure facilities, Ascot Park will be one of the area’s finest new mansions on completion. The consented mansion house comprises of an impressive reception hall with lift, six reception rooms, a kitchen/breakfast room on the ground floor plus a link to the two-storey indoor swimming pool complex. The first and second floors provide eight bedroom suites, all with dressing areas and en suite bathrooms. The lower ground floor plans comprise of further leisure amenities including a cinema, gymnasium, games room, bar, wine cellar, a servery and underground car parking. Landscaping plans include fountains, ponds and rolling parkland within this mature site of approximately 13.61 acres. The remainder of Lot 1includes mixed-use arable and pastureland with woodland, extending to around 37.38 acres – in total approximately 50.99 acres. Lot 2 is the internationally recognised polo club. It includes three full sized polo fields, two practice fields and a 100m x 50m all-weather arena; one of the largest in Europe, it has a purpose-built surface enabling use all-year round. There is also additional grazing land – in total approximately 68 acres. £12m / €13.6m / $15.2m Savills 

Cover for every eventuality

Last but far from least, once you’ve purchased your equestrian estate, it’s imperative that you have all the appropriate insurance in place. Alec Moore, partner of Weatherbys Hamilton, advises, “Stables, tack rooms and associated buildings including indoor riding schools for private use will usually be insured as part of the household insurance package and the schedule would confirm this. Where the equestrian activities are more extensive, the property insurance may fall outside the appetite of the household insurer and advice may be given to insure the buildings under separate farm type insurance policy. This is actually not necessarily the most suitable arrangement as the farm policies provide insurance on a named peril basis, which excludes some areas of important cover such as subsidence and accidental damage. Whereas this may be satisfactory for the buildings on a working farm, it is not suitable for expensive stables built to home valuable horses, which necessitate cover on an all risks basis. Mr Moore also advises that, in addition to the material damage insurance of equestrian facilities, insuring the liability associated with owning horses is vital, both to third parties and employees; in the case of the latter often a legal requirement. “Horses are flight animals,” he says, “and due to the unpredictability of their nature the insurance of equestrian related property and liability is a specialist area that some insurers shy away from. It is important to speak to a broker who is familiar with all aspects of horse ownership and is able to arrange suitable insurance.”

Winkfield Park Estate, Winkfield Row, Berkshire

Just minutes away from Ascot, Winkfield Park is entered via grand gates and a long sweeping drive and set in circa 45 acres of stunning traditional English parkland. Planning permission has been granted to replace the existing manor house with a circa 13,000 square foot new country mansion with views over the existing lake, a courtyard development of five cottages, and a circa 4,000 square foot estate house. The existing outstanding equestrian facilities include stabling for 65 horses, a riding arena, paddocks, and grass gallops. The Royal Berkshire Polo Club and Smith Lawn are within close proximity, as is the Royal Ascot Racecourse. World famous golf courses of Wentworth and Sunningdale are also within easy reach. £7.25m / €8.27m / $9.23m Beauchamp Estates 

nce deeply unfashionable, Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema's reputation has done a remarkable turnaround,

one suspects boosted by two factors: a sort of celebrity status conferred by association with Hollywood film makers - and the surge in value of his works. This riches to rags to riches story is best

illustrated by The Finding of Moses shown here, a work purchased for some £20,000 in 1904. In 1955 it was sold for £900 by a London dealer to a couple who discarded the painting and kept the frame. Six years ago Sotheby's sold the work for $35.9 million. Alma-Tadema's painstaking studies of ancient Rome and those made in Egypt when he was artist in residence on the Aswan dam project have provided invaluable detail for scholars of antiquity and indeed the directors of films from Quo Vadis and The 10 Commandments to Gladiator and, to some Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema

At home in the country

Rural residences such as country mansions, cottages and converted barns call for certain design considerations as two leading interior designers explain


For a country setting, a palette of soft greys works well,

warmed with wood on the floors, wall

and storage finishes.

Scatter cushions in a mix of fabrics soften the wooden settle and turn a country kitchen into a cosy relaxation area.

Emphasise extra height with a sculptural light fitting.

Pictures: Sarah Jane Nielsen

arah Jane Nielsen is an award-winning interior designer who has worked across the globe but is now based in the English Lake District. A country-lover at heart, Sarah particularly enjoys transforming fine period houses and disused farm buildings into incredible living spaces. “Each commission is thoroughly bespoke to take into account the owners’ lifestyle and requirements and we always start by getting to know exactly how the property is to be used,” she says. “Even if you’re overseeing your own project, it’s still important to consider usage as that will help to shape the final outcome.” Next Sarah focuses on the elements that help to make a country home extra special - and that often involves working with the fundamental features of the building, as well as maximising the setting, sunlight and orientation. “One of our priorities is to strive to make the most of any available natural light. Our overall colour palette will also be based around the sun and the time of day rooms tend to be used - and

we also factor in light in our choice of window treatments. A great country house should have a strong connection with its environment taking maximum advantage of the setting in which a property sits to ensure a seamless blend of inside and out.” Sarah advises that the key point with barn conversions is to be careful with the division of space and balance this with consideration of the acoustics that come with sometimes voluminous areas. “Take into account also that

open void ceilings with exposed beams can be awe-inspiring but at the same time can create challenges for heating and lighting. Owners generally are attracted to these once-utilitarian buildings for the potential they have »


Interiors.indd 1

17/08/2017 10:16


Rooms in period houses can be small but make a feature of this by transforming the space with comfortable soft furnishings and a welcoming fire.

Adding a trio of copper pendant lights enhances the natural materials of slate, stone and wood.

Barns provide the opportunity to emphasise height and create impressive living spaces. Note parts of the original stone wall are left intact whilst a low hanging light fitting makes a statement.

for including a multi-purpose hub for living, eating and cooking. Invariably, this can lead to a requirement for an internal division of spaces but in a way that retains the barn’s open aesthetic. “Beautifully-built stone barns can offer opportunities to create contemporary spaces and stunning divisions with the use of glass, large format sliding doors and screens. A new product on the market allows the occupant to alter the translucent nature of the glass to opaque or black-out by the mere touch of a switch and these make a magnificent and eye-catching feature. Or, you can look to the past for inspiration. During a recent stable block conversion project we noted that the original ironwork was to be skipped. By having it sprayed a brilliant red in keeping with our room scheme, we were able to rescue and upcycle it as a clever and unique way of dividing off this vibrant dining space. “For flooring, we love wood for its soft natural look and feel but with the addition of a floor substrate to add some acoustic value. When it comes to heating, what barn owner can resist a fireplace with an open fire? Large open spaces with great ceiling heights

are excellent for the introduction of full-height flues for contemporary, often Scandinavian-designed, stoves sometimes dropped several metres to the floor below to create statementmaking drama. “Our colour and decoration palette will typically include shades of off-white, chalks or soft greys that are perfect as blank canvases against which to accentuate the old barn features – though when the building (and client) allows, we occasionally introduce a vibrant colour pop.”

Unlike the generous proportions that come with barns, Victorian, Edwardian or Georgian houses aren’t always as naturally suited to 21st century living. “There may be more rooms,” says Sarah, “but they are often relatively small - and whilst it’s tempting to create more space, I would be cautious to just knock the bones out of a period house. I feel retaining the splendour of formal rooms, with period features, mouldings and sometimes plasterwork is fundamental. But


Interiors.indd 2

17/08/2017 10:15


there are often challenges to be overcome. Rooms can be dark - and it can be frustrating that amazing views are not always maximised. Adding extra glazing is an obvious way of adding light and opening up views in a country property, and bi-fold doors that open up to welcome in the daylight are an absolute treat. “For flooring and hard finishes, flagstones in period traditional properties are ideal for halls and cloakrooms. We have repaired or reinstated mosaic tile or decorative Victorian tiling in main entrances to stylish country homes. There is a great variety on the market now, and retro tiles are back in favour for bathrooms. Wood adds warmth and we like to mix in wall finishes that give a nod back to the countryside – and when it comes to boot rooms, every good country house should have one.” Sarah advises that a country house cries out for a focal point in its key rooms. “Unless the window and/or view has the wow factor, add life with a fireplace. Choose from a traditional stove or a basket and fit into a stone or marble surround. Kitchen designs can be more eclectic than in other types of property, sometimes with a nod to the old as in Shaker, Arts & Crafts or mouldings. “For colour and decoration, where there are period details and mouldings such as dado rails, picture rails and cornices, we like to use neutral palettes of colour on ceilings and woodwork, perhaps with some soft pastel tones. The period house does offer the opportunity though to adorn walls with archival prints and wallpapers, as well as strong heritage paint colours.” The period and usage of the property will dictate the furniture selection, as will the client’s collection of pieces over the years. “Our preference would be to keep the scheme soft, though sculpture and form still play a significant part in balancing any scheme – sculptural lighting is a clever and relatively

inexpensive way to create impact,” says Sarah. “Window treatments in period properties can really define the soul of the house. We offer options using elaborate poles in paint colours, distressed or metallic in finish. If there is pattern on the wall then a contrast pattern can be considered on the curtaining – but be careful, proportion is the main concern. In more formal properties, most prefer more luxurious,

interlined curtaining, whether tied back or draped on the floor.” Last but not least, Sarah’s top tip for country house style is to keep the fabric away from the window glazing as far as is possible. This enhances the natural light in the room and makes the windows appear larger, bringing the outside in. Sarah Jane Nielsen

Modern and traditional pieces can work together especially if the period features are retained and grand fire places are a focal point in the room

Functionality first

Born in Russia, Lana Filippova moved to the UK in 1992 where she launched her award-winning business, Lana Filippova Interiors. She advises that one of the main considerations, regardless of the type of project, is functionality. “The first question to answer is how the space will be used to ensure the end result will fit in with the lifestyle and also be aesthetically pleasing,” she says. “It needs timeless quality that does not follow fast pace fashion trends.”

Lana believes that the main attraction of barn conversions is a preference for open plan living. “This maximises the natural light accessing all parts of the space. Beautiful countryside views can also be appreciated by all with wall to wall bi-folding doors merging the outside and the indoors. This less formal and family living suits barn conversions although modern living dictates the high-tech approach where kitchens and bathrooms are concerned.” Exposing the roof structure can often create a lovely feature while also offering more height and giving the feel of space. “When designing bedrooms and bathrooms with sloping ceilings and unusual corners, which at first may feel like a wasted space,” advises Lana, “consider utilising these spaces for decorative effects. Alternatively, if the walls are running all the way from the ground floor to the roof, you can create drama with sculptural wall lights. “Lighting schemes and zoning is very important.

space according to the time of day or the activity undertaken. Everything from bright lights to pools of seductive mood lighting with feature lights creating a visually stimulating effects and high-lighting objects of interest, art or architectural elements worth noticing.” Lana believes that a large country mansion can still benefit from an open plan kitchen and snug living space, but at the same time a formal sitting room and a dining room would be desirable. “A separate TV room would make a difference to the decor of the formal sitting room when a TV doesn’t need to be incorporated in the overall scheme,” she says. “An impressive entrance hall with a staircase that will set the scene should also be carefully thought through. This is a very important space reflecting the rest of the house style and the occupants’ personality and status.” Colour schemes will largely depend on the client’s personal preferences and taste. “However, to create an interior which will not tire you,” advises Lana, “neutral colours are best to use for main parts of the interiors, like sofas, curtains, wall coverings. Splashes of colours and even pattern are best left for accessories which can be easily replaced in the future. “Natural materials are always nice to use in a setting like this, but playing with rich and tactile textures and various neutral shades will still create a diverse look with character and

interest. It is worth noting that a lot of current fabrics look like silk or wool or linen, but they are in fact made out of synthetic fibres. Hence, they don’t carry all natural fabric disadvantages, like silk perishing in the sun. If you explore new sheer fabric designs, you would be amazed at how modern they look with intricate weaves and varied weights. Where full privacy is not required, sheer curtains will soften the look of the windows, adding texture and perhaps some subtle colour.” Lana finds that textured designs work very well for wall coverings, offering a more homely feel for the space and providing a good backdrop for artwork on the walls. “I also use a lot of wall panelling nowadays, mixing it with mirrors and textured metal panels.

The materials are wonderfully diverse, ranging from a polished concrete look to stone and metal look. They are easily used for making recessed areas with interesting lighting effects and are a great alternative to feature wallpapers. I would say that covering on all walls would achieve a more sophisticated look as opposed to a feature wall which has been overused in recent years. “I also don’t think that only traditional furniture could be used in a country style residence. Modern and traditional pieces can work together especially if the period features are retained and grand fire places are a focal point in the room.” Lana Filippova Interiors 

The interior design of private jets is quite an art in itself as experts from two specialist companies explain Pictures: Winch Design

Private jet owners are ultimately looking for a seamless experience between the house, the office and the aircraft

Airjet Design  www.airjet-

ne of the main considerations when designing a private jet interior is the space arrangement. Working with such a relatively confined space, every inch counts to ensure that optimum levels of enjoyment and relaxation can be achieved during every flight. Jean-Pierre Alfano, creative director of Airjet Design, says, “The key element for good design in a large aircraft cabin, for example, starts by defining a space layout that will make the passenger experience, social interaction, and

ease of movement a pleasant one. It is a compromise between giving the passenger a sensation of comfort and luxury without giving away too much cabin space. For this, we combine a good layout design with the right combination of colours, materials, and lighting. “The environment of an aircraft is very unique and very different from any other kind of space interior designers typically work on. The living space inside most aircraft is usually rather small with a fixed cylinder shape and limited natural light sources. As a consequence, the initial design requirements for an aircraft are very demanding because at the end of the design process the passenger has to feel good within the cabin environment and forget about the very nature of its limitations.” Additionally, weight limitations, possible flight turbulence and airworthiness regulations have to be taken into consideration during the design process. This leads to technical solutions and material choices that are very demanding and only seen in aviation. “We use a range of luxury materials, which are for the most part aviation certified,” explains Mr Alfano. “For example, certain clients


Private Jet Interiors.indd 2

17/08/2017 10:20

inteors PRIVATE JET

want custom-made silk rugs, the finest leathers, beautiful marquetry, and bespoke lighting fixtures.” As for colour schemes, many of Airjet Design’s clients favour a combination of light colours with darker trim accents. However, there are many colour possibilities, sometimes influenced by the cultural background of the owner but it seems that the most important thing is to maintain a balance in the colour choices.

Flying fish

Airjet Design’s most unusual design to date is its ‘Acquario’ project, where the company was asked to design a fish tank in an aircraft. “The aquarium served as the central piece of the interior,” says Mr Alfano, “and was fitted with filtering and heating systems, built on

a credenza mechanism that allowed for maintenance.” He believes that the greatest change in the design of private jet interiors over the years is the move in the direction of styles that brings the overall look closer to that seen in residential or hotel design. “Clients favour having a private jet with an environment that comes as close as possible to the comfort and style available in homes or hotels. As a result, today we see more furniture (or ‘monuments’ as they are known in the industry) with forms that resemble free standing furniture or home furnishing. We also see more

creative surface textures than before, as well as mood lighting. “Private jet interior design will follow the evolution we see in other industries, some of which our clients are influenced by, as are we, such as yachts, cars, and hotels. From my point of view, I will continue to inject innovation, in terms of forms, materials and layouts wherever possible and depending on my inspiration. The design will continue to be influenced as well by the demand for the latest technology. In the end, private jet owners are ultimately looking for a seamless experience between the house, the office and the aircraft.”

Another important point to consider is how the owner intends to use the aircraft. Will it be to travel with family, for business, leisure or a combination? Sam Curson, senior project manager in aviation for Winch Design, advises that this can quickly help to define the general layout of an aircraft that will suit the client. After that, it's entirely how the designer interprets the owner's desires. “For practicality,” he says, “a lighter interior with white and cream fabrics can be quite tricky to maintain, whereas darker leathers and woods can withstand more intense usage. With a VVIP aircraft the colours and materials should be more for the owner to enjoy, not necessarily for the crew to easily maintain, but we will always look to strike a balance to ensure the aircraft looks beautiful for every flight.

“Natural materials like silks, cottons and linens are preferred for fabrics as these are more friendly to burn testing, but fire resistant coatings, resins and backings have greatly increased the potential to use more interesting materials like carbon fibre, solid woods and elaborate artistic finishes. Likewise, fabrication technologies have advanced in such a way as to allow us to design with solid woods, marbles and other transparent or opaque stones, these can be milled down to between 1mm and 6mm thicknesses and used on floors or cabinetry. “The texture and warmth of real wood or the cold touch and crystalline surface of natural stone is simply impossible to imitate. We've just installed the largest single piece of marble marquetry on a BBJ entry rotunda floor, but we've also built aircraft seats with incredibly intricate, sculpted carbon fibre shells.” Mr Curson has noticed a greater focus on natural light in the cabin over recent years. “Many owners of larger VVIP aircraft desire an interior that is more comfortable and residential and less like a flying sports car,” he says. “As to the future, I think with the available advanced technologies privately owned aircraft interiors will start to have much more individuality in interior style and architecture compared to before.”

Rocking and Rolling at Silverstone Classic

This is one of the best festivals of classic racing in the world where visitors get to see what their dads either watched or raced in their youth. In fact, many of this year’s drivers were actually grandads, still showing how it’s done. The numbers are also impressive with over

100,000 visitors, 10,000 cars displayed, 1,000 cars racing and 107 car clubs featured. Visitors mingled amongst the cars and drivers in the pits and paddock and, when there wasn’t action on the track, it was in the skies above with air displays. The racing included Formula One cars from the loudest era of the sport with Michael Lyons leading the field. In Williams’ 40th anniversary year, it was somewhat fitting that both races should be won by the team’s FW07 – the car that delivered Williams its first grand prix victory at Silverstone back in 1979. A real crowd pleaser was the Austin A30 and A35 Celebrity Challenge Trophy race with stars from TV, car racing, rock and pop and Olympic medal winners. It wasn’t the rockers that rolled but Jonny Searle who fell victim to the wet track, fortunately only cutting his finger. Former BTCC driver Steve Soper won the race which raised £10,000 for charity.

About the house Cranbourne in Shackleford is set in an idyllic semi-rural location in Surrey, close to the sought-after town of Godalming. The brief was to create a home that would have timeless appeal in a setting where barns and properties full of historic character are often to be found. The oak frame on this double-storey, four-bedroom house mixed with full height windows provides the substance of the property and blends the new and old seamlessly. This allows an abundance of light to penetrate through each room and the natural surroundings of fields and woodland to reflect throughout the house. Every material was carefully hand-picked with timber boards cladding the external walls reminiscent of traditional barns. Internal fittings were chosen for their classic features using materials with a natural appeal, mixing textures and finishes to create a calm and serene environment. The use of internal glazing identifies and separate areas but also allows them to expand into one-another giving the illusion of an open-plan space but with individual purpose. Cranbourne exemplifies country living at its best, a home full of character and depth. Contact Kirkby Homes t: +44 (0)1344 872596 

About the car The twin turbo charged Ferrari 488 Spider is a thoroughly thrilling car to drive and possesses two personalities bordering on the extreme which makes it one of the most characterful cars to own. In town, this eye-catching car displays impeccable manners; happy to purr along without shouting. However, on the clear, open road, it accelerates with such velocity, your head bangs the headrest and you are very likely to hit the rev limiter before your brain tells you to change up a gear. With rapid sprints from standstill to 100 KPH in just three seconds and zero to 200 KPH in 8.7 seconds, no turbo lag is detected. The turbo charged motor in the 488 won the Engine of the Year award in 2016 which is a fantastic endorsement of how leading engineers judge this engine. The retractable hard top will even drop down quickly at low speeds and the simplicity and low weight of the roof mechanism has not compromised the car’s performance. A pair of large side vents just behind the doors serve along with all the other vents and spoilers to aid cooling and downforce without sacrificing aerodynamic efficiency. There is so much clever engineering hidden in this car to give it a clear edge while the look of the bodywork is a design masterpiece in aesthetics. Ownership should be trouble and worry free as Ferrari offers a fouryear warranty and seven-year service plan. The purchase price is just over £200,000 and there are many options available to make your car unique and personal to you.

Try it for yourself A test drive is recommended even if you are not planning to change your car in the near future. It will give you a chance to see what you are missing. Visit  to find your nearest dealer.

The new McLaren 720S 'Velocity' offers almost limitless personalisation

The Rolls Royce 40/50 'The Silver Ghost', arguably the world’s most valuable car, was displayed on the house lawns in front of Goodwood House as part of the Cartier Style Et Luxe display of historic and important cars

The theme for the 2017 Festival of Speed was 'Peaks of Performance - Motorsport's GameChangers'. Each year, the event finds a new way of exploring the thrilling past, present and future of the automotive world. This year, it celebrated racing machines that were so fast, powerful, expensive


or complicated that the rules had to be changed to rein them in. With its appearance at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, Bugatti was more than doing justice to its status as the manufacturer of the ultimate super sports car. With eight vehicles from its recent past, the French luxury brand brought as many as 9,404 horsepower on to the lawn at Goodwood House in West Sussex. The cars included six Veyron 16.4, one of which is a pre-series car from 2005, a fantastic Veyron 16.4 Pur Sang from 2007 (both 1001 HP), a 1,200 HP Super Sport from the World Record Edition (2010) and the 1,200 HP Grand Sport Vitesse, which took the world speed record for production roadsters in 2013. However, the crowning highlight of the presentation had to be the new 1,500 HP Chiron1. This year’s Goodwood Revival will be held from September 8th – 10th. The three-day festival has been held each September at Goodwood Circuit since 1998 for the types of road racing cars and


motorcycles that would have competed during the circuit's original period, 1948–1966.

Unbridled opportunities B Home of the beautiful Andalusian, also

known as the Pure Spanish Horse, Spain has a wealth of equestrian properties with fabulous facilities

Pictures: Sotogrande Alto, Andalucia see page 90

uyers looking for high-end properties with extensive equestrian facilities naturally tend to find them located in the countryside. This makes Spain with its broad scope of landscapes and reliably warm climate an ideal choice. Alejandra Vanoli, managing director, Balearic Islands Sotheby’s International Realty, says, “Regions such as the mountainous UNESCO heritage site Serra de Tramuntana prove popular with horse lovers. There are plenty of quaint traditional villages here including Pollensa, Valldemossa and Andratx, offering picturesque riding trails as well as plenty of open land for horses to roam.”

Given this region’s popularity amongst equestrian lovers, demand for properties with facilities and large plots of land is quite high. “However,” continues Ms Vanoli, “it is often the case that plots of land come on the market, giving buyers the opportunity to build a property to suit their needs. We have seen plots of land in North Mallorca, particularly Pollensa, available for sale. “The most common requirement for buyers of equestrian estates is, first and foremost, enough space for stalls, in addition to a large villa and enough space for staff quarters. Entry prices for high-end properties with extensive equestrian facilities start at €3 million depending on the area and the condition of the property. However, this can be significantly higher in some parts of the Balearics.” Liza Kjellberg, head of equestrian estates for Lucas Fox, finds that the south of Spain such as Andalucia (specifically Sotogrande, Cadiz and Seville) proves popular as do Catalunya and areas around Madrid. “If focusing on breeding, dressage or jumping,” she says, “then the size »

of land, paddocks, stables, storage for food and equipment, house amenities and room for staff within a self-providing estate are all important for buyers. There are strict regulations about how many horses can be kept on the land and the local authorities check this. “Sport and country estates suffered when prices dropped after 2007, city property is recovering but rural properties are still struggling to recover and there are deals around but not under €1 million. Many buyers think they can get a bargain – not quite right! Most properties in Andalucia are €3 million and upwards.” Sotogrande is a real estate and leisure destination in Andalucia with contrasting views of sea, hills, cork forests and green fairways, including the Rock of Gibraltar and Morocco. It was first created in 1962 by industrialist Col Joseph McMicking and his wife, Mercedes Zobel de Roxas, heiress of the Zobel de Ayala family, as a destination for the wealthy and discrete. They purchased four neighbouring farms and the area blossomed from there. In 1965 Sotogrande became home to Andalucia’s very first polo clubs, originally playing on the beach. To this day the fields of the Ayala and Santa Maria Polo Clubs are ranked the best in the world. Santa Maria Polo club hosts nearly 30 tournaments each year, culminating in the Grand Slam Carter Gold Cup high-goal tournament every August, attracting the world’s best players such as Number 1 Adolfo Cambiaso and royalty such as the King of Spain and famed society. Sotogrande is also home to riding schools such as Hipica, and offers a

multitude of equestrian activity and training centres such as Polo Valley and Endurance Equestrian, headed by former polo trainer Ferdy Coopman. Óscar Larrea, director of the Engel & Völkers business segment ‘Fincas Exclusivas’ believes that the most popular areas for equestrian properties are in the central southern region within a maximum distance of one hour from an airport. “The quality of the Andalusian horses is highly valued by our Arab and Hispanic-American clients,” he says. “This coupled with the climate and the quality of grazing land make this part of Spain uniquely desirable. “Many of our equestrian estates are located in Andalucia and Extremadura, as well as in the region of Madrid – up to a two-hour drive from Madrid. The portfolio of properties is limited and there are very few for sale due to the exclusivity of the market. Buyers of equestrian properties require sufficient land (more than a 50,000m2 plot), and they are also concerned with the quality of the grazing and the drainage of the land. Good soil quality is crucial here. In addition, key requirements relate to the size of the stable facilities on offer, as well as riding grounds, an indoor riding arena and tack rooms.” Mr Larrea advises that other important considerations are good irrigation as well as security systems for the stables and tack rooms. “Some buyers are also looking specifically for properties suitable for hosting dinners and parties, with guest accommodation on site,” he says. “The price bracket is very large for this kind of property. We currently have estates in our portfolio ranging in price from €10 million up to €60 million.”

Esporles, Mallorca Only 10 minutes from Palma and three kilometres from the coast, this private estate is at the foot of the Sierra de Tramuntana. The main house, which has featured in films and magazines, has a living area of 950m2 plus terraces on each of its three floors. In addition, there are five further outbuildings which are currently used as a sauna/pool house, gym/ yoga studio, estate manager’s office, laundry and stables/storage. There is also a large, fenced riding arena, a triple carport and an extra machine room which offers scope for renovation into a guest house. The property was built in 1370 but an award-winning, sympathetic renovation 10 years ago has made it as enjoyable in winter as in summer. All the wood used has been imported from Bavaria and, with underfloor heating and a mountain setting, the house has an alpine charm in winter. In summer, the house benefits from its spectacular gardens and saline swimming pool. £6.95m / €7.9m / $9m Knight Frank 

RANE These superb ranches and country estates are likely to bring out the hidden cowboy (or cowgirl) in a good many of us. Saddle up and brandish that lasso!


Picture: Solvang, California see page 100

hen you look at the topography of the United States there’s little wonder that it proves such an excellent choice for not only riding but also owning and stabling your own horses. There is a myriad of ranches, equestrian estates and exciting trail rides on offer with different levels of terrain to suit every rider. Rick Distel, Private Client Group, William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty, says, “Equestrian buyers are often more focused on the horse facilities available, as opposed to the area where the property is located. That said, there are certainly towns that attract an upscale equestrian audience, and those include Roxbury, Woodbury and Salisbury in Litchfield County, Connecticut as well as Millbrook in neighbouring Dutchess County, New York. These desirable

towns dot the landscape north of the New York City metropolitan area, beginning with towns like Bedford in Westchester County and working north through Litchfield County, Connecticut and Dutchess County. “For equestrian buyers, the horse facilities are the main requirements when buying these sorts of estates and properties, and the residence is often secondary. For example, barns, paddocks, tack rooms, and indoor rings are all of utmost importance.” Mr Distel advises that the region is home to a large selection of equestrian estates offered across a wide range of prices. “A modest but fully functional property on healthy acreage can be had in some of the towns for $1 million while the sky is the limit at the upper end,” he says. “Again, to many of these horse owners, if the horses are happy it is » worth the investment.” 98

On the right track Living conveniently close to a racecourse or a large, wellestablished equestrian centre is a dream come true for avid race-goers and regular riders


ime is something which many of us feel is distinctly lacking in our increasingly actionpacked lives. Trying to achieve a healthy balance between work, travel, family commitments and your hobbies can prove a difficult task. One time-saving option is to live nearby a facility providing your favourite leisure pursuit – be it a golf course, marina, riding centre, horse or

motor-racing track or whatever. Properties in this type of vicinity also tend to offer the best views. A Christie’s International Real Estate spokesperson said, “Racecourse views do add value to a property, however, the main reason people choose to live in Happy Valley (where the racecourse is located) is because it is close to Causeway Bay (a major shopping, entertaining and business area), with easy access to other parts of Hong Kong, via Aberdeen tunnel to Hong Kong Island South or via cross harbour tunnel to Kowloon peninsula. “Happy Valley is considered a traditional, up-scale residential neighbourhood, featuring modern high-rise building and colonial style low-rise, with a wide range of apartments from 400 square foot to over 3,000 square foot. Plenty of elite local schools and international schools, well established hospital, numerous restaurants and daily amenities can also be found in the neighbourhood.” »

Each one of these wishlist adventures offers the most stunning views of Hong Kong and its many surrounding attractions

Hong Kong’s famous tour

This tour has it all: land, water and air for a complete Hong Kong experience. Fully immerse yourself in the buzz of Asia’s world city, where futuristic skyscrapers rub shoulders with colonial buildings and traditional Chinese temples. First up, this tour will take you to the greatest view the city has to offer, The Peak, via the delightful Peak Tram – a funky funicular railway that’s been in operation since 1888. From there, you’ll journey to Repulse Bay to check out one of Hong Kong's most popular beaches. Then, climb aboard a sampan boat for a closer look at the famous Aberdeen typhoon shelters and their old-world fishing community. Afterwards, drop into a nearby jewellery factory before tucking into a dim sum lunch at the renowned Jumbo Floating Restaurant. You’ll then finish the day with a spectacular bird's-eye view of Hong Kong's world-famous skyline aboard a helicopter ride, which soars high above the city to reveal its beautiful centrepiece – Victoria Harbour.

Ngong Ping 360 Sky Lounge



Equipped with a glass bottom, the Ngong Ping 360 Crystal Cabin is designed to feast your eyes with an astonishing bird’s eye view. The new perspective offers incredible panoramic views of the Big Buddha, the city, the coastline and beyond.

Alternatively, early-birds can enjoy a six-dish dinner at 6pm before joining the Aqua Luna cruise.


Discover Lantau Island

No trip to Hong Kong would be complete without a visit to the Giant Buddha which sits serenely atop Ngong Ping plateau amid the spectacular mountain scenery of Lantau Island. The majestic figure was cast in China and took 12 years to complete. It was unveiled in December 1993 amid deeply religious ceremonies. Visitors can climb more than 200 steps to reach the platform where the Buddha is seated. Next is the ancient Tai O fishing village, a rare example of a Chinese stilt-house community and home to the Tanka people, a community of fisherfolk living above the tidal flats. Their enchanting world is an amateur photographer's paradise and all but vanished side to Hong Kong life. You will have the opportunity to learn how to make fish nets, salty egg yolk or sweet bean porridge in a local house and, if lucky, you may also hear their life stories. 

Sport of KINGS Despite being a city surrounded by desert, Dubai is renowned for its acres of lush green spaces where both polo and horseracing fixtures take place in front of appreciative onlookers

17/08/2017 13:17



ubai has evolved into a world-class city in the past decade with its topnotch infrastructure, coupled with quality and safety standards surpassing most, if not all other cosmopolitan and financial centres of the world. The city also offers exceptional lifestyle offerings, making it a magnet for international tourists and residents. Those with a love of polo, horseracing and horses and riding in general will have plenty to keep them occupied in and around the city. Helen Tatham, managing partner of Prime Places Real Estate, an exclusive leasing and management agency, says, “Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club takes the residential communities found in Dubai to another level. Not only are the villas of superb quality but their setting is a 5-star St Regis resort and equestrian facility that stands tall amongst the best in the world. Great restaurants, 24-hour management and entertainment for the children are a few of the benefits of living there climaxing during an eight-month polo season making it one of the global hubs for the Sport of Kings.” Conveniently close to Meydan Racecourse, Sobha Hartland is a $4 billion dollar, mixed-use development launched in 2014. The resort-style project encompasses 8 million square feet of freehold community in Mohamed bin Rashid Al Maktoum City with 30% of the community reserved for green space. Major investors in homes here come from India, Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Kuwait with further investors from Jordan, Egypt, France, Iran, Oman and Syria. Purchasing a property in Dubai means that you do not have to pay capital gain tax or property tax. A further incentive is that Dubai’s property sector is projected to ramp up due to demand ahead of the city hosting Expo 2020.

Millennium Estates, Meydan

Bordering Meydan Racecourse, home to the richest horserace in the world, the Dubai World Cup, this gated development is a visionary attempt to evoke and inspire the spirit of community living in a reserved yet flourishing neighbourhood. There are three types of villa available, many with an unobstructed and panoramic view of the Meydan Race course, being located right on the edge. From £1.42m / €1.57m / $1.85m – £3.13m / €3.46m / $4.08m Rentals from £57,365 / €63,430 / $74,870 – £78,225 / €86,500 / $102,100 per annum 

Palazzo Versace Dubai Reminiscent of a 16th century Italian Palace, this stunning hotel is a Neoclassical masterpiece with subtle traces of Arabian architecture


he moment you enter Palazzo Versace Dubai’s striking entrance and admire its high ceilings, landscaped gardens and Italian furnishings, it’s apparent that the hotel is truly symbolic of the fashionable Versace lifestyle. Set in the heart of the Culture Village, less than 15 minutes away from Dubai International Airport, Palazzo Versace Dubai is located along the shores of the historic Dubai Creek. A walk through the five-star hotel’s public spaces reveals several exclusive designs and fabrics from Versace, while the lagoon pools and reflection ponds complement the serenity of the lush gardens that surround the hotel.

Every single piece of furniture and fabric that adorns the hotel’s 215 hotel rooms and suites, and 169 residences, is designed and tailormade by Versace exclusively for the Palazzo Versace Hotel Dubai. Each of the hotel’s eight restaurants and bars is designed to have an al fresco terrace to reflect the heritage of Palazzos, where the internal court was the informal space to meet, dine and enjoy the weather. Three outdoor pools are surrounded by palm trees and flowers, while the new spa has seven treatment rooms, a spa suite, nail studio and two Moroccan hammams. Steeped in classic Italian design, each of the hotel's accommodations reflect the true essence of the Versace brand with parquet flooring, elaborate white and cream boiseries and a pastel palette of silk furnishings. The rooms and suites are flooded with natural light and offer views of the Dubai Creek or Culture Village from a private balcony or terrace. 
