W E L COME TO o u r l at e s t i s s u e o f MAYFAIR PORTFO L IO Our latest issue of Portfolio comes at a pivotal time in the property market cycle. Can anyone have failed to notice that things are on the up? High Street spending is up, employment is up, manufacturing is up, GDP is up, the service sector is up, lending is up and the property market is up. In fact the property market is back with a vengeance in most areas. Vengeance is such a bitter word but it is a correct one in this instance – the retaliation for something harmful. The recession was harmful to so many people, but the market is retaliating now. Is all this a blip? It is now looking unlikely. The planets seem perfectly aligned for growth in the property market. This is a great time to buy or sell. Low interest rates, plenty of stock in many areas, keen buyers, less reluctant lenders – the market is set pretty fair. There is certainly a lot of very good and exciting property coming on to the market as these pages of Portfolio demonstrate only too well. I do hope that you enjoy browsing through the magazine and perhaps even spotting your next home.

Steeped in history and beauty and offering many opportunities for shopping, dining, sporting and leisure activities, Sunningdale is a picturesque village in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, Berkshire. Situated just 24 miles west of London and in close proximity to Ascot,Virginia Water and Windsor, it is considered to

be one of the most desirable villages in the region. Sunningdale is separated from Windsor by the vast green space that is Windsor Great Park, which includes Virginia Water, a large lake. The park, which is mostly open to the public, is managed by the Crown Estate. It is also home to the Guards Polo Club, the most

exclusive in the world, which hosts the Cartier International Polo Day on Smith’s Lawn in Windsor Great Park every July. Polo is also played at Coworth Park and Ascot Park. Like neighbouring Ascot, Sunningdale has natural beauty on its doorstep. Chobham Common, for example, is an historic open space that links with our

Stone Age ancestors and has hundreds of wildflowers, rare birds, frogs, deer and beautiful dragonflies. It is also a National Nature Reserve, Special Protection Area under the EU Birds Directive and a Site of Special Scientific Interest. The area is popular with professional golfers due to the proximity of Sunningdale and Wentworth golf clubs. These two world-renowned courses regularly play host to some of the most prestigious tournaments in golf including the BMW PGA Championship, which is the European Tour’s flagship event. The reputation of both clubs also attracts amateur golfers from far and wide.

As well as golf there are a number of other pastimes and events that can be enjoyed in the region. Charters Leisure Centre, which has recently undergone a major redevelopment, has all the sports facilities you could ask for and there are several tennis and football clubs for all ages in the region. And the Sunningdale Carnival, which takes place every year, is something that is in all resident’s diaries as a ‘must do’ event. The village has a number of small local shopping areas offering a mix of independent shops, chain stores and restaurants, with a large Waitrose conveniently close to Sunningdale

Five-Star Country House Hotel, Coworth Park, which is part of Dorchester Collection, also has three exquisite restaurants. Add to this the nearby Royal Berkshire and Sunningdale Park hotels and there is an enviable list of top-class dining and accommodation to pick from. Family days out are also catered for and close to Sunningdale there is The Lookout Discovery Centre, which offers 70 interactive exhibits, where you can launch a hydrogen rocket or climb

through a giant mole hole, complete with nature trails that wind through the fabulous forest. The Savill Garden is considered one of Britain’s finest ornamental gardens and covers 35 acres of interconnecting gardens and exotic woodland. And, of course, there is, Thorpe Park, one of the country’s top theme parks, which is just over five miles away. Easy access to the motorway network (M25 and M3) and Heathrow airport attracts wealthy Londoners and international buyers to the area as well a direct rail link to London Waterloo. Sunningdale is also close to the

prestigious towns of Ascot, Sunninghill and Virginia Water. Julian Amos, sales manager for Waterfords estate agents in Sunningdale, says: “Sunningdale is home to some of the most elite properties in the country and is awash with large mansions secured by electronic gates, high fences and hedges. “But property values do span a broad spectrum from approximately £250,000 for a two-bedroom apartment, right up to 7000sq ft mansion at £7 million. “The local state schools provide an excellent education; there is no shortage of top-performing primary schools and the local comprehensive, Charters in

Sunningdale, is judged ‘outstanding’ by government education watchdog Ofsted. The top two international schools are TASIS-The American School in England and ACS International Schools, both of which are a great attraction to overseas buyers with children. “Families from overseas often get posted back home but retain their UK property as an investment.” Sunningdale is a beautiful village that offers great schools, exquisite property and a location that is second to none. It is little wonder it is top of so many people’s wish list when considering where to make their next move.

Leasehold properties As a leasehold property owner, do you know how long is left on your lease? Over the period of time that you own your property, the length of your lease is continuing to decrease. Why is action required? Your lease is the legal agreement between you and your freeholder. Should the lease come to an end the ownership of the property passes back to the freehold landlord. Your lease is also security for lenders who may require that it has at least 70 years left to run. You or any prospective purchaser may experience difficulties getting a mortgage when you come to sell or re-mortgage your property if you have a shorter lease. Why extend now? It is cheaper to extend a lease with more than 80 years left. When the

lease term drops below 80 years, the cost of extending a lease can rise substantially. You should therefore aim to extend your lease as soon as possible to avoid the difficulties associated with a shorter lease. Why contact Hart Brown? Getting specialist advice can save time, cost and stress. Extending a lease involves a formal legal process particularly if you are not able to agree terms with your landlord. Getting it wrong can be expensive. At Hart Brown our team of specialist solicitors can advise and assist you in extending your lease in addition to helping you through the process. Lease Valuation As part of the process you will need to obtain a valuation from a qualified valuer and advice on the correct premium which you would need to pay.

work closely with suitable experts in the context of a reciprocal referral arrangement although we neither pay nor receive any money for these referrals. We do so in order to ensure as seamless a process as possible for you . You are of course free to use a different valuer if you prefer. ............................................................. We also have a dedicated website http://leasehold-enfranchisementsolicitors.com where you can learn more about leasehold properties. Call us for some friendly, expert advice and to find out if you need to take action now by telephoning any one of our team on 01483 887766 alternatively you can email us at lawyers@hartbrown.co.uk. We look forward to hearing from you.

At Hart Brown we can offer to deal with the whole process on your behalf including arranging the valuation. We

Relieving poverty among street children in Mombasa Glad’s House is a British charity working on the ground in Mombasa, Kenya, to improve the lives of the city’s street children. It aims to lift many of the estimated 35,000 street children out of a life of hopeless poverty and give them the chance of a real childhood. Living in intolerable conditions, separated or orphaned from their parents, they spend their lives in a daily struggle to eat and find shelter, often falling into petty crime or prostitution. Sadly many are addicted to glue, which alleviates their hunger and is cheaper

than food. They have no home, no school, no family. But there is hope... Established in 2006, Glad’s House aims to provide a place of safety for many of these children, giving them the opportunity to enjoy their childhood while preparing them for a productive and self-sufficient adulthood. Glad’s House employs social workers to undertake streett work, building relationships of trust with those coming to the charity’s refuge. This year, Glad’s House Refuge will open its doors, providing shelter and a ‘safe haven’ for up to 75 children at a time.

It also believes sport is a great way to improve lives. Partnering with MOYO (Mombasa Olympic Youth Organisation) the charity provides sports kit and funding for boxing, football, basketball, volleyball and rugby teams. This helps provide the motivation to stay away from drugs and crime whilst enjoying a very real break from their day-to-day existence. We are always looking for partners and sponsors help with our ongoing initiatives. One of our main objectives is finding support for an incredible opportunity to enter a Kenyan team into the 2014 Street

Child World Cup, which takes place in Rio de Janerio two weeks prior to the FIFA World Cup. Entering the Kenyan team will help the charity raise awareness of the problems faced by street children. If you can help or would just like to find out more about the charity and other ways you can make a huge difference to these children’s lives please visit www.GladsHouse.com. Thank you.

German manufacturer Loewe has a reputation for creating some of the finest in luxury audiovisual devices. However, with the new Reference ID TV it has created an experience the company likens to “akin to haute couture tailoring”. Using exclusive materials, the Reference ID offers more potential for bespoke personalisation than any other TV in the world. With a beautifully minimalist design, the television looks and feels like a work of art. It is available in three screen sizes – 40in, 46in and 55in – with an initial choice of four colours for the aluminium frame and rear panel, plus six colour patterns for the speaker cover. Other options include monochrome LED backlighting, and the incorporation of wood and leather, and by the end of this year Loewe will launch a full ‘bespoke tailoring’ service, enabling customers to include their own colours, materials and motifs to create a unique, personalised piece of equipment.

However, whether sporting a standard or custom finish, all Reference ID televisions are manufactured at Loewe’s factory in Bavaria, ensuring the top quality of the product. However, it is certainly not a case of style over substance as state-of-the-art technologies help ensure a lifelike, razorsharp picture and amazing sound quality. The Loewe Reference ID’s outstanding picture is achieved through the use of Full-HD LCD technology with LED backlighting and 400Hz picture quality. The luminosity and high picture frequency of these displays means they are perfect for showing 3D content, and to achieve a rich black and optimised contrast, the television is also equipped with a highquality contrast filter panel sporting a sophisticated anti-reflective coating. Typically, for a Loewe design, the Reference ID delivers an exceptional sonic performance. With 160W of integrated audio muscle, it creates a

tremendously realistic audio experience that is only enhanced by a wide variety of different sound modes. The Reference ID is also equipped with an elegant, tailor-made operating system and features Loewe’s top-of-the-range remote control, complete with Loewe Assist Media, which enables the simple integration of TV programming, internet content, personal photos, videos and apps. All individual content can be quickly saved as a favourite to the home screen. Equipped with a generous 1TB of storage space, the integrated DR+ hard disk recorder can record both 2D and 3D content. It also facilitates time-shift TV in various different rooms. Programmes can even be stopped during transmission and – without missing a thing – be watched to the end on another of the home’s Loewe televisions. This feature remains unique to Loewe. Prices begin at £4,500. For more information visit www.loewe.com
