Comment Art auction

Property comes in many shapes and sizes, and it is not just land or bricks and mortar. In the simplest sense property means ‘something owned’, and that applies to art just as much as a house.

FOR a DesiGn anD seRvice as UniQUe as YOU

The art world is buzzing at the prospect of three sales by Christie’s in July and September of art and property from Cowdray Park. In July Christie’s expect a painting by Thomas Gainsborough to fetch a new record for the artist of between £4 million and £6 million at one of two auctions at their London showrooms. In September the sales move to Cowdray where more than 1,000 pieces of property from the Pearson family collection will go under the hammer – priced from £100 to £250,000. The three auctions are expected to raise £10 million. In the housing market, we review property in the park from Winchester to the A3. This special area may receive a new boost in July with the opening of the Hindhead road tunnel, which marks the long-awaited completion of the A3 dual carriageway from London to the south coast.

Stephen Richardson visits Parham Park, which he finds ‘magical’ “Is that God or wot?” a young Veronica Pearson was heard to exclaim in the 1920s when being taken up to bed. She was referring to a large and rather intimidating portrait by Gainsborough of Major Norton Knatchbull, which had found temporary lodging at the top of the staircase in the family’s London home.

Emptied of its contents, Clive and Alicia had to start from scratch. With great sensitivity they set about reversing awkward Georgian and Victorian alterations, and refurnishing with items having some historical connection to Parham, or otherwise being appropriate for its reinstated interiors. Among important acquisitions were 93 pictures, mainly portraits of people connected with Parham, purchased from Lady Zouche. These include one possibly of Elizabeth I, who is said to have

Veronica’s parents, Clive and Alicia, were enthusiastic collectors of works of art having some association with either their family or with their recently purchased country estate, Parham Park, nestling in the South Downs near Pulborough. The stern Major was an ancestor of Alicia, while Clive was the second son of wealthy Weetman Pearson, 1st Viscount Cowdray. The Pearsons had acquired a sad and neglected Parham (pronounced Parrum) in 1922 and it became their life’s work to restore it to its former Elizabethan glory. Construction of the house began in 1577 for Sir Thomas Palmer, whose two-year-old grandson Thomas laid the foundation stone and went on to find fame as an adventurer with Sir Francis Drake. The completed house was laid out to the traditional Elizabethan E-plan, centred round a Great Hall with 2

The Queen was godmother to Elizabeth Verney, mother of the little boy who laid the foundation stone. Also hanging in the Great Hall is Peake’s striking equestrian portrait of the doomed Henry, Prince of Wales. His status as the great hope of the nation is symbolised by decoration on his coat showing hands clutching anchors, while at his shoulder stalks Father Time - a feature painted out at some point in history and only revealed during a modern restoration. Alicia Pearson was fascinated by needlework and embroidery, and the collection at Parham is one of the most important in this country. The West Room in particular displays a fine set of 16th century Flame Stitch wool hangings whilst other early examples can be found in the house. It is likely, however, that the paintings will prove the most striking feature to confront the visitor. In room after room we find them, hung carefully to reflect a particular period or family connection, complete with furnishings to match. Everything is in balance.

Triple sale of Cowdray treasures Christiie’s will hold a series of three auctions from the Pearson family collections which are likely to raise more than £10 million – with the prospect of a record for a painting by Thomas Gainsborough. The first two auctions in July are at Christie’s in King Street, London. On the evening of 5 July an Old Master and British Paintings Auction will include a Gainsborough among a group of five British portraits. The Gainsborough – Portrait of Miss Read – has not been seen in public for 75 years. It could set a new record price for the artist, which currently stands at $5.75 million (£2.9 million) at Christie’s New York in April 2008. It is estimated that the painting will fetch. £4-£6 million. On 7 July three important pieces of silver go on sale in a decorative arts auction. These include George III silver-gilt wine-coolers, collars and liners. On 13, 14 and 15 September, the sale moves to Cowdray. Works of art from Cowdray Park (the home of Viscount Cowdray) and Dunecht (Scottish home of the Hon. Charles Pearson) will feature in the largest country house sale of the year. This three-day auction will include more than 1,000 lots, from £100 to £250,000, and is expected to realize £4 million. Orlando Rock, Deputy Chairman of Christie’s, says: “This collection is led by an outstanding group of British portraits. It is particularly exciting that this will complement and bolster the Armour (£20,000+) richest offering of British art that has been offered at auction for a generation this summer at Christie’s; from the sublime Stubbs from the Woolavington Collection to Lucian Freud’s turning-point portrait ‘Woman Smiling’; and from Peploe’s striking ‘Still-Life’ to the Pearson Gainsborough.” www.christies.com 4

House prices still fall House prices continue to drift downwards, as has consistently been the case over the past 12 months, according to the latest Halifax House Price Index, published in early June.

Prices in May were unchanged from April, but, in the three previous months, were 1.2% lower. A marginal increase in prices of 0.1% in May followed April’s drop of 1.4%. Martin Ellis, housing economist, says: “Low earnings growth, higher taxes and relatively high inflation are all putting pressure on

household finances. Confidence is also weak as a result of uncertainty about the economic and employment outlook. These factors are probably constraining housing demand and applying some downward pressure on prices. “Overall, we expect a moderate improvement in the economy during the remainder of 2011, which combined with continuing low interest rates, is likely to support housing demand. This should prevent a further marked fall in prices and help to stabilise property values later in the year.”

Postcards for the Park The South Downs National Park Forum launches on 19 July at Stanmer Park, in Brighton. This aims to bring together people and organizations interested in shaping the future of the UK’s newest National Park.

Meanwhile, people are being asked for their vision for the Park in a series of initiatives, such as ‘Postcards for the Future’. This features images on the front of a postcard typifying how the National Park is changing. On the back, people are asked to answer to the question: ‘What do you want the South Downs to be like in 20 years?’ ‘Postcards’ and other initiatives aim to ensure that everyone who loves the South Downs is engaged in developing the Management Plan for the Park. Feedback will help fuel debate at the launch in July.

www.southdowns-property.co.uk

After that, the forum will develop online and offline with workshops and discussion groups. A partnership group of key individuals will play an informal advisory role. The South Downs National Park Management Plan will be developed during the next three years. It will drive the planning policies for the Park, which will be published separately. And it will cover the environment, business, tourism, land management, access, and recreation., among other topics.

Slow guide to the Downs A new guide, Slow Sussex & South Downs National Park, seeks reasons to savour what makes an area special. Part of the series of slow tourism guides published by Bradt Travel, it aims to “help a reader pick his or her way round carefully”. Author Tim Locke recounts his slow travels with huge affection, chats to enthusiasts, points out places where you can take courses on countryside skills, finds museums where you can volunteer at weekends, and describes 10 of his favourite local walks. The new national park “will help preserve the very special character of the Downs and the Weald - an area that has miraculously kept its deeply rural character,” Tim Locke says, “and help promote the right sort of sustainable tourism that is very key to the Slow concept”. Locke, who is project manager of the slow series, has lived in Lewes for 15 years, and is amazed at how many new places and experiences there are to discover. “This is a landscape where nature and human activity strike a particularly satisfying balance.” Contact Tim Locke, 01273 475381, tim@timlocke.co.uk Slow Sussex & South Downs National Park,

Agents operating from Winchester and eastwards to the A3 offer their views on the property market in their area. By Nick Keith

there is strong demand for viewings from buyers and a fair supply of properties here, the agents report that vendors may bide their time before accepting an offer. An air of caution and care hangs over the market.

The South Downs Way begins near King Alfred’s statue at the bottom of Winchester High Street. The route makes its way to Chilcomb, and then the romantically named Telegraph Hill and Cheesefoot Head, where the natural bowl has provided the setting for many a summer pop concert. The path crosses the A272 twice before arriving at the Milburys pub at Beauworth, the first convenient watering hole on the route.

George Clarendon, Partner at Knight Frank in Winchester, looks after the area for his firm. “The market is consistently good,” he says, “ because it is always popular. This is tried and tested ground for people moving out of London or south from Surrey. The tunnel at Hindhead is just about to open and we don’t know what that will do for the market. Demand is already exceeding supply, so we all need stock.”

From there the track heads downhill to Exton and up Old Winchester Hill, overlooking Hambledon with its historic old cricket ground and popular brewers Bowmans (famous for Swift One and other mainly pale beers). The South Downs Way itself drops down into the pretty valley of Combe, but canny walkers, riders and cyclists may choose to stay on the ridge and take the direct route along the road to the Sustainability Centre, Droxford.

Knight Frank’s South Downs portfolio includes Downgate Farm, which probably dates from the 16th century. The main house has four reception rooms and five bedrooms. There is also a self-contained one-bedroomed cottage and outbuildings in the courtyard. Situated in more than 16 acres, the house has walled gardens and views of the Hangers, above Petersfield. Guide price: £2.75 million.

Here is another notable stopping-off point with excellent food at the café and many country crafts and pursuits to enjoy - you can even book a place for a natural funeral and burial there if you are so morbidly inclined! The next stretch is across Butser to the Queen Elizabeth Country Park just east of the A3.

Steven Moore, Head of Residential at Savills in Winchester, says: “There is strong demand for good family houses. At this time of year people who want to move into the area make a serious effort to acquire a house before the start of the new school year in September.”

This is the landscape for South Downs Property’s latest foray, into the westerly section of the South Downs National Park. While

Victorian cottages, it looks traditional and has six bedrooms. The grounds cover 4.3 acres, with a three-bay barn, loose boxes and paddocks. The guide price is £1.75 million. Hoe Cross Farm is an attractive family home in the National Park with fine views. Well placed above Hambledon, it has seven bedrooms, four reception rooms and a large kitchen/breakfast room leading into a conservatory. Outside there is a barn and three acres of paddock as well as a garden. The guide price with Savills is £1.5 million. Matthew Hallett, Partner and Head of Residential Sales at Carter Jonas, says: “The Hindhead tunnel may be too far north to have any noticeable affect upon the Winchester market. However, it will make a noticeable difference to those driving down from London to their weekend properties and boats in Sussex/ the east of our region.

Baybridge House, Owslebury (Carter Jonas)

“The South Downs National Park was talked about for so long that it was hardly noticed when it came into being last year. It has protected a wonderful environment from St Catherine’s Hill in Winchester to Beachy Head near Eastbourne. It has been well received by London buyers, protecting The Meon Valley to the East of Winchester and keeping unspoilt this beautiful area of chalk downland that is so easily accessible for the school and station run.” At Fine in Winchester Anne-Marie Green reports good activity among buyers. “But there is still a lot of caution,” she adds, “and the market is usually about buyer motivation and sentiment.” One househunter has viewed the same property six times. Fine is marketing Belmont House, Ropley, on the edge of the Downs, 15 minutes from Winchester. Part of this family house dates back to the 1600s, with Georgian additions and a complete renovation in the last 10 years by current owner Nick Bond and his wife. He says: “There is just such a feeling of space here. It offers an incredible lifestyle to parents and children.”

Belmont House, Ropley (Fine)

The house has four bedrooms and a cot room; two reception rooms, a kitchen/breakfast room with separate utility room and a separate walk-in Pantry. Outside there are four acres of fenced-in grounds, with a summer house, and three outbuildings including a garage. The guide price is £1.2 million. The six-bedroom Brockbridge Cottage, built in 1904, has been extended so that it has outgrown its name in a sense. Situated inside the National Park at Droxford, the house is 12 miles from Winchester and the price has recently come down, to £950,000. There is planning permission to extend the house further,” say the owners. Hamptons’ country house division has 45 properties at more than £3 million in the south east. “There is no shortage of people looking,” says David Carter, Director, “but it is hard to get buyers to commit – although we are starting to see more transactions coming together.” Pick of the Properties, page 12. An example of the Hamptons’ portfolio is Glebe Park, Lurgashall, West Sussex. Six miles from Petwroth, it has six bedrooms, 3 reception rooms and an orangery.

The average property value is £208,000 in Hampshire and £204,000 in West Sussex (£163,083 in England and Wales as a whole).
