Fulmer Grange by Oakeve

Announcing the UK’s Best Property Professionals… There are many qualities that distinguish the winners of these highly prestigious awards. Our judging panel seeks everything from innovation, sustainability and ecoawareness to that crucial injection of ‘wow-factor’. Excellence has to be apparent in every element, whatever the category may be. I hope that while browsing through the winning companies and projects featured in this brochure you will agree that the overall standard is being raised ever higher. One of the most strongly contested titles each year is Best Single Unit Property and 2013 was no exception. After much deliberation, the award went to Fulmer Grange by Oakeve. This stunning ‘Lutyens Style’ Arts & Crafts house, surrounded by formal landscaped grounds is in a highly desirable area of Buckinghamshire. Best Apartment was awarded to Kidbrooke Village by Berkeley Homes. As a flourishing London community in the Royal Borough of Greenwich, Kidbrooke Village features contemporary new apartments of outstanding quality and sustainability. Queen’s Grove London Residence by Manushi Design has taken the coveted Best Interior Design Private Residence award. Timelessly elegant with well thought-out practicalities, it represents a beautiful family home that offers luxury living with the highest specification. Many congratulations to these winning companies and all those listed in this publication. May I also take this opportunity to remind you of one of the many additional benefits of entering the awards programme. Once again we are hosting a series of Property & Hospitality Shows in Dubai and London to which all entrants are invited. These events prove invaluable for targeted networking and forging new business partnerships with companies of an equal high standing. Please refer to our website at www.propertyawards.net for full details of dates, locations and how to register.

A towering opportunity

Berkeley Homes is launching the latest phase at One Tower Bridge, Wessex House, offering the opportunity to own a property at one of the most talked-about luxury London residential developments, located on one of the last great riverside sites available in the capital. One Tower Bridge will rank amongst the most luxurious of prime central London developments, with residents having access to five-star facilities on site including a boutique hotel, a -hour concierge managed by Harrods Estates, a gymnasium, a private health club with a swimming pool, sauna, steam room and vitality pool, a virtual golf facility and a residents-only business lounge.

Landmark living

Nowhere else in the world can you live amongst some of the world’s most iconic landmarks, including the Tower of London, Tower Bridge and the capital’s newest showpiece, The Shard. Whether you want to be close to the capital’s finest cultural destinations, the thriving business districts or world-class schools and universities, its location is unrivalled. Designed by internationally respected architects Squire and Partners, the . hectare site will provide  private apartments and penthouses, most of which have private balconies, terraces or roof gardens. Built in four different architectural styles, the buildings vary in size, architectural appearance and height, taking full advantage of the location beside the River Thames. 10

International Property Luxury Collection

Each apartment features the latest in integrated Smart Home Technology. Residents are able to adjust their heating and air conditioning or control their entertainment and security systems from anywhere in the world.

Coveted collection

Wessex House is an exclusive collection of  apartments and  penthouses situated at the heart of the development. The interiors have been designed by Darling Associates, who have worked on some of the most prestigious central London developments including One Hyde Park in Knightsbridge and Embassy Court in St John’s Wood. From the lobby to the individual apartments, Wessex House has the feel of a five-star hotel. Darling Associates has designed elegant spaces sourcing the finest materials from across Europe with opulent Italian and French stone and timber, all complemented by bronze detailing.

One Tower Bridge residents will live directly next door to Potters Fields Park, part of the Thames Walk, and will benefit from access to this acclaimed public space, as well as a beautifully landscaped exclusive private courtyard garden, with three individually designed areas. The opportunity for both investors and home buyers is unique – an iconic address offering exceptional one, two, three and four-bedroom properties in the heart of one of the most vibrant parts of central London, with access to five-star facilities on site. ■ Further information From £785,000 / €932,000 / $1.24m One Tower Bridge Sales Suite St Olaves Tooley Street London, SE1 2HZ Telephone: +44 (0)207 871 0011 Web: www.onetowerbridge.co.uk Email: onetowerbridge@berkeleygroup.co.uk

At Design by Deborah we understand that our clients love their homes, and that they understand the value in great design. Often they want to be more adventurous with their style using bolder colour, patterns and shapes, yet don’t know where to start. They often have great interior design ideas, but can’t find what they are looking for. Others simply don’t have the time to manage their own interior design project We specialize in creating interiors, which are classically elegant, quintessentially English, and that are unique. We mix the antique with the modern, bespoke with the reproduction, add flair and imagination to deliver outstanding interior design service to our clients. We are based in Berkshire, west of London and have worked with clients in and around London as well as within Europe for the last ten years. We have just been recognized by the International Property Awards as providing exceptional interior design for the residential market. We have experience in building teams to carry out complex and demanding projects, drawing on the skills and expertise in the team to create beautifully designed interiors. Our enthusiasm and energy for what we do gives our clients

confidence to hold our hand while we lead them through the journey of interior design. We measure success by the reaction of our clients. It is important that the design has functionality, is beautiful and contains that ’wow factor’. However the most important part for us is that we have added value to our client’s home, lives and helped them to reconnect to the sanctuary of their home. This is where they spend time with their family and friends, relax, meditate, laugh and cry. All these important life experiences can only be enhanced in a beautifully designed home.
