It’s even more awe-inspiring when the backdrops

for these properties consist of nothing more than

natural beauty. This issue ticks all the boxes as there

is a heavy focus on the Greater Antilles in the Caribbean, which as we all know is a luxurious region. Fortunately for me it’s an area that I call home, having spent 22 years living in Jamaica.

So, as an ode to this part of the world, you can choose to invest in the

Cayman Islands with its immaculately-maintained white sand beaches or reside amongst the coconut and palm trees while taking in the intoxicating music and culture of Jamaica. In addition, the Dominican Republic is

renowned for its tropical flora and fauna, whereas Puerto Rico, with its archipelago, has no restrictions for international buyers.

My thoughts are now drawn to the Turks and Caicos, which I have

been told has a thriving property market. So, as if holding a brush to a blank canvas, I will ensure that I paint for you the best of what this island has to offer in the future.

A Royal AAIR

Kensington borough is one of many crown jewels in London, and its property market – an affluent and quintessential area that has beautiful abodes in abundance

tretching from the River Thames opposite Battersea Park to Kensal Green, luxurious and esteemed residential enclaves hug the streets of Kensington; a Royal Borough with so much to offer that the affluent can’t seem to stay away. According to Warren McCann, area director of the central division at Douglas & Gordon, “The prestige and charm of Kensington attracts buyers from around the world. Some seek a trophy address close to the wide, open spaces of Hyde Park, others are drawn to the history and architecture.” Adding to its rich history, Clodagh Blain, Foxtons Earls Court sales manager says, “Kensington was largely developed between the years of the great exhibition in 1851, up until the early 1900’s. The result of this development was gorgeous townhouses and mansion blocks.” With two distinct locations within the borough to choose from: South Kensington (SW7), and High Street Kensington (W8), families crave the appeal of the more spacious residential settings on offer, making Kensington superior to other areas in the capital. Peter Sheehan, owner and director of The London Resolution adds, “Whereas Marylebone (as beautiful as it is) comprises mostly tall, thinner flats and houses as well as some roads being mixed residential and business use, Kensington boasts many large attractive houses of between 5,000 to 15,000-plus sq. ft. “Kensington is serviced by a number of underground stations including Gloucester Road and South Kensington in the south, High Street Kensington in the middle, Notting Hill Gate in the north and Holland Park at its most western point. Yet, you have to walk a number of miles between the most southern and northern stations, highlighting Kensington’s expansive, verdant offering”, he continues. While the spacious abodes draw the most attention, the architecture makes it a highly desirable area, too. Influenced by French and Dutch designs, Mr McCann reveals, “The white stucco fronted buildings are particularly popular due to the generous proportions of the flats. The most sought after are ground and first floor flats, due to the large windows and high ceilings that they boast.” Mr Sheehan agrees and pinpoints a couple of eye-catching residential estates; “The Phillimore Estate, where people aspire to live, is a grid of stucco rendered houses (mostly) which offer attractive solid trophy homes with gardens. Whilst Kensington Palace Gardens, known as ‘Billionaire’s Row’ is the crown jewel of residential properties in London with prices starting at £50 million!”

50 Iverna Gardens An exclusive and lavish three-bedroom ground floor apartment has been meticulously furnished within a portered mansion block. Featuring access to a communal garden, exceptional entertainment space comprises two interconnecting receptions. Relish in the peaceful surroundings as you sit by the gas fireplaces or enjoy a scrumptious meal in the bespoke eat-in kitchen by Laurameroni with Italian marble and an abundance of storage. The master bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe with bathroom and shower and there are two additional en-suite double bedrooms, which are beautifully arranged with custom finished joinery. Further benefits include a powder room, solid oak wooden floors, as well as underfloor heating and lighting system that runs throughout the accommodation. Furniture, accessories and artwork for sale by separate negotiation. £3.8m / €4.3m / $4.8m Chestertons

“There are a number of trophy buildings, including the impressive Academy Gardens, one of the older development projects undertaken in 2000. Since then One Kensington Gardens has sold very well and currently the CIT scheme of Lancer Square is commanding £4,000 plus per sq ft. Lodha’s third scheme has been announced off Kensington High Street and we all wait to see how this does, following its success at 1 Grosvenor square and Lincoln’s Inn.” For those tempted by Kensington’s grand designs, “There’s a bounty of traditional Victorian apartment buildings, all generally commanding prices significantly north of £2million. This diverse housing offering appeals to a real cross-range of wealthy occupiers. All of this coupled with access to Heathrow and M4 in only 13 miles,” comments Mr. Sheehan. Ms Blain concurs and adds, “It is not uncommon to see a one-bedroom flat sell in excess of £1-1.5million. Two beds can range from just over a million and in excess of two million, while houses tend to start at £4 or £5 million and upwards. If you were wanting to purchase a mews house, they usually start at £2million plus. Also, it is not unusual for some of the best properties to achieve £2000 per square foot.” Whilst the largest demand of homes in the area previously came from overseas investors, there has been a noticeable deviation, Ms Blain explains, “In the last few years there have been a number of changes to stamp duty and capital gains tax which have seen the demand in the area shift, with more of a focus on domestic buyers, still eager to live in Kensington and Chelsea and enjoy the luxurious living it offers. London is such a diverse, cosmopolitan city that many of these buyers originate from Europe, Asia, America, Russia but are now ‘Londoners’ first and foremost and are looking for long term homes.”

Music of the nature Recognising Hungarian masters with a cultural musical arts centre

T Varosliget Zrt 84/A Dózsa György Str., Budapest 1068, Hungary t: +361 374 3131 t: +361 374 3130 e:

here is perhaps no other cultural area where Hungarian art has made a bigger impact than music. Although people may know this as the land of Kodály, there are many Hungarian composers who have left their mark on the universal language of music: Béla Bartók and Franz Liszt are defining figures in European music history, while György Ligeti, György Kurtág and Péter Eötvös are giants of contemporary classical music. The House of Hungarian Music – designed by Sou Fujimoto - will provide a comprehensive overview of the music masters from Hungarian and European music and bridge the cultural divide by paying tribute to some of the best known and most respected musicians. The new educational centre is being developed as part of the Liget Budapest Project,

currently Europe’s largest cultural urban development plan. This programme will transform Hungary’s largest park on a scale not seen since the millennial celebrations of 1896. Taking an unconventional approach, The House of Hungarian Music will also serve as a performance,

training and education centre as well as exhibition venue. The interactive music hub is aimed to be a space for exploration of music. The design of this new public area and events venue in Városliget also embraces the surrounding parkland and introduces creative musical work.

Property developer Domus Vivendi Group’s new ELEMENTS project HIPPIEMENTS evokes happiness and relaxation enveloped in stunning architecture

Apartment prices start from £483,900 / €525,000 / $567,500 HIPPIEMENTS by Domus Vivendi Group e:


ippiements is located on the beautiful island of Ibiza, which is synonymous with peace and tranquillity. The project sets a benchmark in architecture, quality, energy efficiency and design. The ‘hippie’ motto is used as a tribute to Ibiza’s wild, formative years, without being too imposing. Many details are reminiscent of these times, such as the fact that the apartments bear the names of iconic individuals and places from the hippie era, instead of standard numbers. Distinguished by exceptional sea views, the development takes a special architectural approach characterised by components such as natural stone, wood, glass and vertical gardens. The project also features various special highlights for future owners. A 15-metre-high patio in the middle of the building provides plenty of light, as well as natural ventilation, beautified by art and vertical gardens. In addition to a spa area with gym, steam bath and a heated beach-pool, the complex also offers its owners a large landscaped outdoor area called ‘ChillMENTS’. This features many recreational and communal spaces for relaxation. As with all element’s projects, an in-house 24/7 concierge service will also be provided. The location of the project is also ideal; it is ten minutes away from the airport, five minutes to Ibiza Old Town and just a one-minute walk to the beach. 32

LIVING Russian company Smart Wood takes the art of timber to a whole new level with its magnificent property designs

Smart Wood t: +7 495 740 5504 | instagram.smart_wood |


mart Woods timeless designs come to life owing to a fusion of Siberian timber and skilful carpentry. The end results are beautiful, durable and comfortable homes that are not short on luxury. The Agios project, in particular, is the largest handmade wooden complex in Cyprus, and will feature two residential buildings, two saunas and a garage within a total area of about 2000m². The structures are being handmade using clever techniques with materials that were brought to the island from Russia. The main building is being constructed using high-quality Siberian cedar, while the blockhouse will be made at the Smart Wood production base in the Moscow region. The use of wood to build properties is new to Cyprus as there is a long-standing tradition of designing houses with stone and concrete. However, with a high-quality approach to construction, a wooden abode will integrate harmoniously with the environment. Other construction materials and interior items were shipped in from Russia, Europe and America. Those involved in this project are highly qualified carpenters, engineers and foremen from Russia, Lithuania and Cyprus, among other countries. The use of such skilled workers is of the utmost importance to the company to ensure that every project is built with love, care and professionalism. In addition, Smart Wood structures are assembled using non-shrink technology, which makes each home timeless, and there will be no intervention required in the long run owing to this. To date, work on the complex is nearing completion and the owners will be able to move into their new home by December 2020.

Modern and exquisitely semi-furnished apartments enhance this stunning development, coupled with recreational, fitness and banqueting facilities. It seeks to bring a fully integrated service to enhance the already rich urban fabric of the city. To add to the appeal, the greater Bole area is bounded by major roads leading to the airport and the city centre. The neighbourhood is host to some of Addis Ababa’s most iconic, historical and prestigious establishments including, foreign missions, civic and administrative government offices and international organisations. Owing to its positioning, Bole is the ideal location for Grandview. The project capitalises on an urgent and growing demand for high-end, secure luxury housing and office space in a city that plays host to over 130 diplomatic multinationals. You’ll also find a fast growing group of young professionals, upper-middle class residents and a thriving diaspora community. In addition to being the capital city of Ethiopia, Addis Ababa is home to the Africa Union and Economic Commission for Africa. Therefore, this project will further enhance diplomatic, commercial and cultural links whilst contributing to the development of modern hospitality and recreation in the country. Grandview Addis

Transforming spaces Jutta Hoehn is the creative mind behind JSH Algarve, the innovative architectural studio leading the way in bespoke design across Portugal. Jutta specialises in developing one-of-a-kind homes and successfully blends contemporary architecture with traditional features to create a signature aesthetic.

Luxury redefined

As part of her portfolio of elite properties,

Situated in the exclusive Occitanie region of southern France, LUX* La Baraquette comprises 22 garden suites, 133 apartments, 30 patio villas and four spectacular waterfront villas. Developed by Propriétés & Co, the project’s first phase of residences is already taking shape and will deliver the epitome of French elegance with sleek, modern comfort and convenience. Each residence has been thoughtfully designed by award-winning Slow Life Architects from Barcelona, and with interiors by internationally renowned designer Lázaro Rosa Violan. The project is considered to be nestled in an area that produces some of the country’s best wines, while benefitting from 135 miles of coastline, and boasting six UNESCO World Heritage sites, all combined to create a calm and tranquil lifestyle.

Jutta is channelling her skill and eye for detail into transforming three townhouses in Faro, two of which are due for completion in May 2020. Although modern, these townhouses possess the charm of much older properties with the use of Portuguese tiles in the kitchen along with antique entrance doors with glass panels, proving that classic architecture can be seamlessly combined with contemporary design.

Born in Fukagawa, Hokkaido in 1983, Masahiro Kikuno attended the Tokyo School of Jewellery before embarking on his journey to make watches completely by hand. Kikuno uses manual machines and finishes parts by hand – as close as possible to the way the watchmakers of hundreds of years ago did. With this method, he is only able to make a few watches per year. His most recent model, the Temporal Hour watch, is based on the previous Japanese method of counting where each temporal

In flight

stablished in 2002, the Bremont brand is inspired by aviation,

with each piece having a classic personal touch. In the case of the

Bremont H-4 Hercules watch, it pays homage to the 1940s Hughesera aircraft boat, known as the ‘Spruce Goose’. Renowned as the largest plane in the world at that time, it was intended to be used during World War II, but sadly was not completed in time. Limited to just 300 stainless steel, 75 rose gold and 75 platinum pieces, the H-4 is a micro-engineering work of art. The 25 jewel Bremont BWC/02 movement is based on the original proprietary automatic BWC/01 calibre built in partnership with movement house, La Joux Perret. It has an automatic winding rotor incorporating some original birchwood veneer that was used to make the ‘Spruce Goose’. Original aileron fabric from the aircraft’s control surfaces can be found sewn into the bridle leather watch packaging, making it a fantastic piece to own.

THE HEADLINE STORE by DEZN STUDIO In 2018, Dezn Studio designed a playful retail store for Headline, a fashion platform in Surabaya, Indonesia. The concept is to create an engaging environment that gives customers unique experiences at the time of their visits.


“Instead of simply letting the guests come to the store and only shop, we want them to enjoy, interact, and capture the environment as well,” Dezn Studio said. The store facade is intended to create a sense of "curiosity”. It is designed with a big arch-shaped opening fitted with tempered glass. The store itself, is organised over three areas. On the front, the Conveyor-inspired display; made of plates and specifically customed with dynamo motoric to spins the plates. At the central area, clothes’ display racks are framed on both sides by wall pink curtains, supported by floor-to-ceiling brass gold steel tubes. And the back area consists of two key features: stone installation shoes display composed of fake stone that cover an entire wall and a gigantic toilet bowl installation made from resin for selfie-takers.

armony and synergy are two words that come to mind regarding kitchen interiors. However, in order to achieve fuss-free appeal, Jamie Harding, commercial director at Kitchen Connection of Ascot, gives his opinion on what is needed to create this luxurious design in particular. “The secret to achieving the perfect luxury kitchen is to bring a kitchen specialist on board as early as possible in the process. A renovation project can be a huge commitment and interrupt family life, but the journey

should also be exciting and enjoyable. Therefore, consultants can help you to navigate the different stages of your design to ensure you feel comfortable. “The first design consultation is one of the most important meetings of a project as it is a designer’s opportunity to gain an in-depth understanding of your lifestyle and requirements. We recommend spending some time to think about the details of your dream kitchen before your consultation, in terms of both design style and practicality. “Industrial kitchens have been incredibly popular in recent years and we believe that this trend will continue throughout 2020. However, the 2020 industrial look is more refined than in previous years with people incorporating industrial elements and materials in a subtle way. “This particular kitchen layout centres around a U-shaped kitchen island which creates additional storage space and a large work surface for food preparation or for entertainment purposes. To add a contemporary industrial feel, the kitchen cabinets are finished in a combination of grey oak and graphite concrete. Steel accents such as the knurled handles, thicker island worktop with seamless welded sink, plinth and feature glazed units add individuality to the design and tie the kitchen together with the overall interior scheme.” »

espoke furniture, by its very nature, is endlessly versatile, giving you much scope for individuality. Every need can be tailored for, from awkward corners to specific storage requirements. Charles Yorke, which specialises in bespoke handcrafted kitchens, were chosen to create this beautiful eating area for Brockenhurst Homes. The attention to detail is one of the elements that give the company’s highly engineered furniture a little extra luxury and individuality. According to the Charles Yorke’s team, there are many elements to think about when planning the perfect kitchen. It is a good idea to think initially about how you would like to work whilst cooking; ensure you have plenty of workspace and that you have a great working triangle for cooking, preparation and storage. For the social aspect of your kitchen, layout is important as you should consider where guests will sit whilst you cook and where you would like to eat once the food is served. Short stay seating such as breakfast bars should be away from the direct area where you will be working but close enough so that conversation can flow easily. Having an island or peninsular can give a natural break in the layout and offer informal seating. It is ideal to design a layout that has individual areas working well on its own as well as complementing the next. Zoned lighting for each of the different areas of the room is useful too; from task lighting for where you are preparing food and cooking, to mood lighting in the dining entertainment area to set the scene.

Beautiful styling by Interior design studio Panel 7 gives way to a warm and cosy environment


nspired by the subtleness of warmer tones, Panel 7 interior designers wasted no time in choosing a mixture of greys and browns that would offer the owners a relaxed and versatile space. They also ensured that every inch of the newly built home in Cambodia was hugged in stunning textures to add visual interest. Colour selections were not the only stars of the show, as lighting fixtures, chandeliers, curtains, carpets, bedding and luxurious mattresses played a part in bringing harmony to the overall décor. A walk through the ground floor reveals a welcoming living room where guests and family can enjoy hours of conversation. In addition, there is a dining area, kitchen with mini bar attached, a maid’s room, as well as a bedroom for the owners’ grandmother. On the other hand, the first floor houses a separate living room for a more intimate family setting, while the ultra-luxe master bedroom has a full set of furniture, a small office studio and a dedicated room for a beautifully laid out wardrobe. A stroll up to the second floor further cements Panel 7’s desire to create spaces that are eye-catching yet functional. The area benefits from a balcony, which is perfect for the family to enjoy the beautiful weather, as well as three additional bedrooms that have been decked out in furniture, wallpaper and flooring materials to create a look and feel that is fit for royalty.

Japanese car manufacturer Aspark has unveiled its new fully electric hypercar to rival other

Need for SPEED

competitors in the automotive industry. The Owl, which is the company’s first project, includes an automatically extending spoiler, digital cameras integrated into the wing mirrors and an interior that sees controls and switches embedded into the ceiling. The company has put it all on the line when it comes to the cars’ performance specs, claiming a top speed of 249mph, and a run from a stop to 186 mph requires a mere 10.6 seconds. With the ability to hit 60mph in just 1.69 seconds, it is the quickest in the world. Electric cars are known to weigh more than your average gas-powered vehicle thanks to their hefty battery packs, but this is not the case with the Owl. There is a 64kWh lithium ion battery, which is of a much smaller capacity than those in competing models with the aim of reducing the overall weight. The car's smooth curved shape was chosen to portray a feminine appearance. The body features a mix of taut creases and smooth curves. All of the panels are carbon fibre reinforced plastic, except for a stainless-steel frame in the roof for extra support. Included in the design are four extremely powerful electric motors, which produces a total power of 1480 kW with 2012 horsepower. The

The 21in wheels house carbon-ceramic disc brakes measuring 410mm up front and 360mm at the rear.

That top folds down, too.

In light of the pandemic, it’s also an even better option to charter a private jet owing to a number of reasons. According to Adam Twidell, CEO of PrivateFly, “Travelling by private jet offers far greater control over your travel environment, fewer touchpoints and the ability to avoid crowded spaces - so it is very appealing to many people now. You share the cabin only with a small number of close contacts; and avoid the main airport terminal, moving through a small and uncrowded private terminal (FBO) instead.” Charter prices available on request

orld-famous coffee, never-ending stretches of azure waters, intoxicating music, a plethora of flavourful dishes and a tropical climate are but a few of the reasons to invest in Jamaica. Walter Zephirin, managing director of 7th Heaven Properties comments, “With its year-round warm and sunny climate, friendly and welcoming people and breathtaking natural beauty, Jamaica offers a great lifestyle. Love nothing more than relaxing on the beach? Jamaica’s beaches are simply spectacular, and the island also offers so much more. Nature lovers will be in their element exploring the island’s waterfalls, rivers and mountains. Golf lovers will love the island’s golf courses which count among the best in the Caribbean. Prefer to just kick back and relax with a refreshing glass of Jamaican rum or some sizzling jerk chicken? Where better than in the island of “One Love?” Furthermore, Mr Zephirin explains why the island is considered to be an investment haven: “As visitor numbers have surged to record levels, the island has moved firmly on to the investor radar. The destination offers huge potential for generating a tremendous return on investment via the luxury vacation rental market. Secondly, in recent years the Jamaica real estate market has enjoyed significant growth at both the luxury end of the market and the more affordable end of the market. A strong pipeline of new villa and condo developments has stimulated demand among foreign investors, members of the Diaspora overseas as well as Jamaican first-time buyers.” In terms of current and future prices, Mr Zephirin says that luxury homes in Jamaica typically start in the region of eight million dollars upwards. He adds, “It is difficult to predict how prices may change in the near future due to several factors introducing uncertainty, such as the global outbreak of Coronavirus. In recent years, prices have seen an increase. Assuming that we are all able to get back to business relatively soon, we would hope to see that trend continue, but in the meantime there may very well be bargains to be had for investors.”

Tryall Club Live the Jamaican dream with this six-bedroom luxury home in the prestigious Tryall Club in Hanover near Montego Bay. Set on 3.56 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds on a plateau, you will be spoilt for choice between the panoramic sea and mountain views. Designed by Nancy D. Maffesanti in a classic and elegant Jamaican style, this is one of the finest luxury homes for sale in Jamaica. The main house features a spacious living room and dining room which opens on to a large covered veranda with outdoor living and dining areas. It also has five bedrooms which feature design influences from the Caribbean and Asia. A stunning master bedroom is located in a 1,900 sq. ft. self-contained pavilion with its own media room, bathroom with Jacuzzi, shower room and a private veranda. The property opens on to charming gardens with 2 lavish pools – a 75-foot infinity lap pool with a pool-side gazebo and a solar-heated garden pool with an arched bridge. £2.8m / €3.1m / $3.5m 7th Heaven Properties

The Cayman Islands


f you’re looking for more, then ignite your sense of wonder and take a f light from Jamaica to The Cayman Islands, which are just under an hour away. There you will be greeted by immaculate white-sand beaches, the most famous being Seven Mile Beach. Three beautiful islands make up this country: the largest, cosmopolitan Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman. According to Jill Davison of the 1503 Property Group, life in the Cayman Islands is idyllic. “We have the best of several worlds here. We have a very cosmopolitan society, a thriving financial services industry and a world class tourism product, which has been impacted by COVID-19 but which will bounce back as soon as borders re-open. We are a short one-hour flight from the US, have a really high-end culinary scene and a great arts scene, all nestled on a tropical island with white sand beaches, crystal turquoise waters and glorious sunshine nearly 365 days of the year.” Michael Joseph, broker and owner of Property Cayman agrees, “We are so very blessed. We experience a very easy outdoor lifestyle; everything is close and convenient. Having had the privilege to travel the world there are very few places that hands down offer it all. In a stormy, volatile and vulnerable world we seem to be a safe harbour.”

As far as the property market goes, Mrs Davison explains, “Our buyers are a variety of high net-worth individuals who are either already permanent residents in the Cayman Islands and are looking to expand their property portfolios, or people who are relocating from Europe, the US and Canada and are looking for a Cayman home and/or are looking for investment properties.” In terms of reasons to invest Mr Joseph says that, “We don’t have any capital gains tax, inheritance tax, death tax, annual property tax or income and sales taxes.” There is a great demand for abodes, but in terms of the best areas Mr Joseph explains that it is dependent on the individual’s personal property journey, “The best locations will range from Seven Mile Beach (and adjoining peninsula), South Sound and/or Cayman Kai. Location is not only key to one’s investment journey (and their ultimately exit strategy), but also the lifestyle during ownership too. These three locations offer a beautiful balance of both head and heart (investment and lifestyle). “Regarding prices being achieved, there is something for everyone regardless of their property journey and budget. At the top end of the market record prices include US$7.15m for a high-end vacation home in Cayman Kai, or US$25m for a pre-construction condominium penthouse on Seven Mile Beach or a US$14m private residence on the Seven Mile corridor. That’s the top end of the market of course, and prices for a two-bed inland apartment can start as low as US$250k.”

The Dominican Republic


ow turn your attention to The Dominican Republic, which is a country blessed by 600 miles of beautiful beaches and endlessly lovely landscapes, as well as tropical fauna and f lora. One main area is Punta Cana, which Cesar Herrera, owner and chief executive office of Provaltur International Inc says is the place to live. “The Dominican Republic has it all: beautiful loving people, huge mountains, breathtaking beaches, incredible food, a growing agricultural industry, a rich culture and one of the only islands in the Caribbean to offer so much quality for the price. If you are looking to establish your own business in

a beneficial and tax-friendly place, you should take advantage of the opportunities here, especially if your activity falls under any of the following categories: telecommunications, infrastructure, renewable energy, agribusiness, software development, manufacturing, or tourism”, he continues. On the other hand, Sergio Llach, president and CEO of Sotheby’s Dominican Republic explains that properties within Casa De Campo, located in La Romana on the island’s golden Southeast Coast, have everything that ultra-high net-worth individuals need. “Casa de Campo is the most complete complex in the Caribbean and one of the most exclusive in the world. It is a paradise for golfers as it features f ive different world-class golf courses. It also has one of the biggest marinas in the Caribbean, designed 104

by the Italian architect, Gianfranco Fini. La Marina features exclusive stores like Vilebrequin and yacht brands like Azimut, Pershing, among others. Casa de Campo also has a horseback riding facility, polo fields where international cups are disputed every year, tennis courts, a private beach, a private country club and helipad, just to name a few.” More importantly, the prices that are being achieved depends on what someone is looking for. Mr Herrera says, “For a beachfront three-bedroom apartment in a luxury resort, prices start at $575,000. A 7000m² lot on the beach may cost between 3.75m and 6 million. Villas and houses in front of a golf course in Casa de Campo, Cap Cana or Punta Cana are around one million dollars, while the super luxurious abodes can cost around 10 million or more.”

Puerto Rico


n a little under an hour by plane from the Dominican Republic, you can become immersed in the Puerto Rican culture. Francisco “Paco” Diaz Fournier and Alejandro “Alex” Herrera, principal managing partner and partner respectively of Luxury Collection Real estate say, “With an area of 3,500 square miles, Puerto Rico is the third largest island in the United States and the 82nd largest island in the world. The island’s topnotch labour force has become the primary asset of Puerto Rico’s diverse manufacturing sector and continues to be one of the main reasons established companies continue to operate locally and new ones are drawn to the island. “Puerto Rico has problems, like any other place in the world, but it is also a charming and beautiful

island, rich in culture and history, and most of the people who live here feel a strong attachment to and affection for it.” Luckily, there are no restrictions for international buyers to invest in Puerto Rico. On the other hand, there are a number of tax incentives, which Mr Fournier and Mr Herrera expound on. “Extraordinary new tax incentives make living and working in Puerto Rico more enticing than ever before, especially for US citizens. They create a sense of urgency for investors to move to Puerto Rico and bring their business here, generating a high demand for purchase and rent of luxury properties on the island. These people are in a great part responsible for the boom in the luxury real estate market here. There are measures in place to attract new residents to the island by providing a total exemption from Puerto Rico’s income tax on all passive income realised or accrued after the individual becomes a bona fide resident of Puerto Rico. 110

“Act 22 in particular applies to any individual investor that became a Puerto Rico resident on or before the taxable year ending on December 31, 2035, provided the individual was not a resident of Puerto Rico at any time during the 6-year period preceding January 17, 2012. “Act 399 provides for the establishment of international insurers, branches of international insurers and holding companies in Puerto Rico to convert the island into an ideal domicile for international insurers. Protected cell plans and securitisation plans are allowed.” While these are but a couple of the many incentives on offer, they provide a bit of scope into why you should consider investing on the island. Prices for properties depend on the square footage, and according to Mr Fournier and Mr Herrera it ranges from $400 – $2,000. In addition, the highest selling condo was $8.6 million, while the most expensive home was sold for $15 million.
