by Simon Halliday The charming enclave of Primrose Hill is new territory for Sandfords, and one that we are very much anticipating working within. It is a charming enclave, with everything a Londoner needs on the doorstep – excellent cafés and pubs, high quality food shops, and the wonderful open space of the Hill itself. And the village is conveniently situated for the high culture of the West End and the edgier urban vibe of Camden Town and Shoreditch. The great mix of accommodation, from large houses to onebed flats, means that a vibrant community has built up from single professional people to families. The one brake on the market is that nobody wants to leave – once people move into Primrose Hill, they tend to stay.

Both the sales and rentals markets are doing well – exceptionally well in the context of a national market that remains in the doldrums. We expect the next few years to be exciting times in Primrose Hill as the nation, boosted by the stunning success of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, climbs out of the financial crisis. Primrose Hill has more than its fair share of the kind of entrepreneurial person that makes Britain great in the areas of the media, fashion, music and the arts – we believe it is set to flourish.

Right: Sunset on Primrose Hill

Hidden gem Primrose Hill is one of London’s hidden gems – a village that is close to the city’s vibrant centres of culture and commerce but is quiet and exclusive, protected by its park.

Sandfords’ new office brings an added dimension to Primrose Hill’s flourishing property market, adding the combination of deep local knowledge and international connections that has been so successful in Marylebone, Regent’s Park and St John’s Wood. The new branch is headed by Simon Halliday, who knows the area intimately, having run his own property search business before being headhunted by Sandfords. For him, Primrose Hill is the ideal combination of exclusivity and community spirit. “Primrose Hill fits in with the type of property we are already selling and appeals to the same kind of people who like Marylebone and Regent’s Park. It is a place people go because it is a little bit alternative, an attractive area with a very nice village atmosphere,” he says. “Primrose Hill is surprisingly exclusive – there are a lot of people who have never heard of it. Everybody knows Notting Hill and Holland Park but Primrose Hill is a bit of an oasis, a gem. I love the architecture. It has a very nice selection of properties with very few ugly high rise blocks, predominantly freehold houses so there are a lot of young families.” 6

The small-scale architecture and village feel with its wide range of boutiques, delicatessens and organic grocers fosters community spirit, Halliday says: “The big feature is the open space and the sense of a village community. There is only one street in and one street out, so there is no through traffic. There is a wonderful high street with bespoke shops and no chains. There are wonderful schools. If you want urban activity there’s Camden and the West End is only a short journey away.” North London born and bred, Simon has been well known in the local property market since the 1980s. He is married with two grown up sons and is a big Tottenham Hotspur supporter. The friendly community atmosphere has attracted many celebrities to the area, but to live their lives rather than as a statement of their success. “I’ve acted for a number of celebs to buy in the area, but I don’t like to name drop because they value their privacy,” Simon says. “We are very discreet, which is why we get their business again and again.”

Renters also love Primrose Hill for the wide range of stylish family accommodation, says Director Julia Garber. “It is a very family oriented area and a bit bohemian, so it appeals to a lot of people who don’t want to live in St John’s Wood or Marylebone,” she says. “We get a lot of musicians, actors and people in the media, and I have had a number of French clients who have compared it with Montmartre, the artistic area on a hill to the north of Paris.” On a sunny day, the cafés of Regent’s Park Road spill out on the pavements, bringing a touch of Parisian café life to north London, Garber says. The shops are mostly independently-owned, with a strong bias to exclusive clothes and top-quality produce from local and regional suppliers. Education is also important to families, and there are a large number of top private and state schools in the immediate area. Proximity to the famous Royal Free Hospital is also highly valued by residents. Primrose Hill is an increasingly attractive area for property investors. Prices are more realistic than Knightsbridge or Kensington and the potential for yield is better as a result. The large stock of family accommodation, the nearby open spaces and excellent transport links with the City make Primrose Hill very appealing to executives in the financial and legal sectors. Euston, King’s Cross and St Pancras are also convenient, with their national rail links and high speed lines to the Continent – Paris in under three hours, so you could actually have lunch on a pavement café in Primrose Hill and get to a pavement café in Montmartre in time for dinner!

It’s never been properly explained why, but Primrose Hill is mentioned in more songs and ballads than anywhere else in London. Perhaps it is the pretty name. Or it might be the lovely views of London, especially at dawn. Maybe it is the large number of musicians and poets who have always liked to live in the area.

Primrose Hill in song Primrose Hill’s lyrical fame started very early, when a broadside published in London in 1685 recorded a song called The Sweet Salutation on Primrose Hill. In the pleasant month of May, a young man met a Maid On Primrose Hill so gay, and thus to her he said: “Fair Maid, sit down by me upon this flowerie place, Fine pastime thou shalt see within a little space.” It’s the usual story, of course – the girl gets pregnant but, less usually, it is her mother who forces the boy to the the decent thing. The more sentimental Victorians wrote a song celebrating a virtuous girl called The Lass of Primrose Hill: Sweet sung the linnet and the thrush, Upon the bending spray, And vocal was each vernal blush, In rapture with the May. Enraptured then I viewed the maid, And think I see her still, In all the pride of youth displayed, The lass of Primrose Hill. In the 1960s, however, Primrose Hill got a bit trippy and weird. Rock’n’roll stars began to appear. In 1966 the Rolling Stones were taken there for a dawn photo shoot to be richly amused by a bearded, long-haired hippy playing 8

the flute and completely ignoring the celebrity gate-crashers to his dawn chorus. The following year, Paul McCartney wrote the quintessential Primrose Hill song after another odd encounter whilst walking his Old English sheepdog Martha at dawn. Alistair Taylor, in Yesterday: The Beatles Remembered, wrote that they admired a spectacular sunrise, then ‘turned around to go and suddenly there he was standing behind us. He was a middle-aged gentleman, very respectably dressed in a belted raincoat... Paul and I were sure he hadn’t been there only seconds before. Hadn’t we been looking for Martha in that very direction?’ Brief greetings are exchanged, the man walks away, and then vanishes as mysteriously as he had appeared. Shaken, ‘we both felt that we had been through some mystical religious experience...’ The result was one of the defining songs of the 1960s: Day after day, alone on a hill, The man with the foolish grin is keeping perfectly still But nobody wants to know him, They can see he’s just a fool And he never gives an answer. But the fool on the hill sees the sun going down And the eyes in his head see the world spinning round…

That DVD you really wanted to see flown out directly to you in the middle of the Med, only hours after you casually expressed a regret that you hadn’t seen it... er, check.

You must have been dealing with Robert Dubsky.


his enterprising young British yacht broker has made it his mission to bring to yachting a whole new level of lifestyle detail. For Dubsky, it’s not simply a question of


“take the commission and run”: instead, he puts his peerless contacts book to good use to make sure that you get whatever you need on your trip and before you even know you need it. It’s a sort of broker-meets-concierge service, though Dubsky is still searching for another term to describe what he does. “Concierge is a tricky word,” he muses. “We’re not offering it as a concierge company, we’re offering it as an addition to the yacht.” His company, Yacht Masters, charges no extra fees for the service - which, beyond simply finding you the perfect superyacht,

could range from securing gold dustlike tickets, such as Centre Court Finals Day at Wimbledon or a sold-out operatic premiere, to connecting you with a crack team of maritime security guards to protect your yacht as you sail through dangerous waters, or even just advising you on prep schools for your children. If you’re lucky, he might invite you shooting in the country, or fly you out to drive supercars in the Arctic Circle. It sounds like a risky business plan: lots of outlay, but where’s the return? Well, he says, his clients aren’t idiots: they know what it costs to charter that yacht. 


“Any broker can go and get the yachts, and many do, simply acting as booking agents, but we have gained good relationships with both owners and Captains and are very competent at negotiating on all deals, but there is always a limit. Every yacht is listed at the same price wherever you go.” So why are they coming to Yacht Masters rather than other brokers? “The only reason is going to be down to the level of service they get in the core product and the general level of service they get from dealing with us, and the privacy they get. People like that.” He must be doing something right: he's just opened his third office, in Monaco, a glamorous addition to his existing presence in Britain (at a private, very discreet country estate) and, most recently, Montenegro. In fact, he is the ONLY superyacht broker to settle in the new marina at Porto Montenegro, the latest under-the-radar playground for the Alist, all glorious vistas and retro chic. That’s no small achievement for a man still in his mid-30s. A combination of hard work, entrepreneurialism and, of course, fantastic connections has played in his favour but he says he will not hesitate to drop a connection should they be involved in something he deems “unethical or untrustworthy”. After all, his business relies upon trust and friendship - his version of “social networking with likeminded people” is more likely to involve six or ten people on a driving trip on the Côte d’Azur than 500,000 followers on Twitter. The same goes for establishing a team upon whom he can rely to work with the same dedication, resourcefulness and 28

courtesy. “Finding staff is probably one of the toughest things in the industry,” he says. His people around the world are just as adept at understanding the technicalities of yachting as dealing with the lifestyle requirements both on board and off, and they are united by one overriding concern: their clients’ happiness, whatever that takes. A lot of it comes down to good judgement, and that is something he has honed over more than a decade in the yacht business (not to mention a spell in the wine trade and another job selling supercars in Park Lane) - and it didn’t always come easily, he says. 

“When I first started in yachts, and I was 24, there was a 22-year-old client in Monaco who wanted to charter a 200ft yacht for the Monaco Grand Prix. He said he’d walked into the main Monaco yacht brokers and no one had taken him seriously. Well, I was brand new, and I was taking everybody seriously, so I went to see him. And I assumed that, as a guy who could spend that sort of money, he’d want a flash restaurant so I asked where he wanted to meet and he suggested Stars ’N’ Bars ... which is just a simple bar … and he said to me, “What do you want to drink?” I looked at him and thought, you’re 22, I’m 24, it’s lunchtime: “I’ll have a beer.” So the beer came and he ordered a cappuccino, and I remember thinking what a mistake I’d made. I had just assumed he had been living life as a jetsetter, but of course he was a normal guy; he didn’t want a drink at lunchtime; he met at a bar because it was the easiest place to go to. And there aren’t many guys that we deal with who just want to show off. They’re just normal people.”  31

Normal his clients might be, but sometimes a little showing off is exactly what they do want and, thanks to the flexibility and personal touch of a small company, rather than some huge credit-card concierge system, Dubsky can provide it - alongside as much discretion as you like. So while you might want a quiet romantic week on a yacht with nothing but sea for miles, when it’s time to pop the question, you can get that Champagne delivered just at the right moment - an experience one of his clients has enjoyed. “Someone proposed recently and we were able to drop the crate of Champagne using GPS-guided parachutes and co-ordinates from the yacht.” That’s the kind of normality you’d go back for again and again.

In the heart of London’s West End, away from the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street, St Christopher’s Place is home to one of the finest hidden gems in men’s fashion, Diverso.


ounded and led by two young English designers, James Reynolds and Darren Hampton, the Diverso label has become recognised for its elegant mix of British creativity and quality Italian craftsmanship. To create every collection the pair surround themselves with the finest pattern cutters and artisans in Italy and spend months channelling and perfecting their designs. The eagerly-awaited new Autumn/Winter 2012 Collection strictly follows this ethos and looks to be the brand’s most complete collection to date explains co-founder James Reynolds. “For this latest Collection we’ve invested more time than ever behind the scenes in researching, sourcing trimmings and designing and creating our own exclusive fabrics to work with. Much in the same way our own customers discover our tucked-away store, we spend time unearthing amazing small companies across Italy who have been weaving fabrics, crafting clothing and specialising within their industry for generations.

These small companies form the quality foundations we build our creations on and the Autumn/ Winter Collection is no different.” “This season my personal favourites are the ‘Nastro’ and ‘Piping’ shirt styles and the Manica blazer” continues James. “The satin trim gently frames the collar and cuff on the ‘Piping’ style and I think it looks great with either a tie or bow-tie. For the ‘Manica’ tailoring we sourced a double-faced Merino Wool fabric made up of two different

colours. By making this into an unlined blazer and reversing some of the detail, we have produced a really elegant and interesting blazer with contrast sleeve detailing.” Co-founder Darren Hampton explains the thoughts behind the creative process and how their collections are always eagerly anticipated by their loyal fan base. "I love the buzz created by a new collection and especially listening to the feedback from our customers who are always intrigued by what new concepts we have come up with. I think the Autumn/ Winter Collection will be a great success, the subtle details and fabrics used are fantastic. We always try to mix classic with a twist - and the twists in this collection are quite exceptional.” “I’m most excited about the ‘Piping’ shirt and our new bow-ties made from 2 different silks” continues Darren. “As a whole I think this is a very strong collection with fine knitwear and polo shirts complementing the shirting and tailoring. All round there is a good mix of both product and style to tick a lot of boxes.” As well as launching the Collection in their London store, the brand

has added Selfridges and on-line giant Zalando as official stockists alongside the 15 stores around the UK currently selling the Diverso label. 37

The Diverso Autumn/Winter 2012 Collection will be available in store and on-line from 1st August. For more info please check or follow Diverso on Twitter and Facebook.







RED BOOK RedBook Agency is the first agency set up to help clients identify the ideal architect or landscape designer for their projects using the Agency’s unrivalled industry knowledge and personal expertise.

Taking its name from the celebrated ‘Red Books’ made by Humphry Repton, one of the most significant figures in the history of English taste, RedBook Agency is a ground-breaking new service that helps clients find and select the ideal architect and landscape designer for their project from among the brightest talents in Britain.

British architects and landscape designers enjoy a hard-earned reputation as world leaders, yet prospective clients often find the right practice hard to identify. No wonder: Britain has 33,000 architects and no limit to the numbers calling themselves landscape-designers. What is more, some of the finest practitioners prefer not to advertise or even have a website.

RedBook Agency will offer clients: ! A choice of outstanding practices working across the entire spectrum of styles ! Tailored match-making with the ideal practice ! Friendly advice on the whole commissioning - and building - process ! In-depth knowledge of practices and unrivalled expertise in architecture and landscape design The benefits to clients include: ! Saving time and research effort ! Absolute confidence in their final choice of creative partner ! Maximising the aesthetic and financial value of the project ! Minimising risks of any upset during the building phase ! Greater enjoyment of the commissioning process ! No cost beyond the normal fees charged by the practices Sandy Mitchell, founder and director of RedBook Agency and a former editor of Country Life and the Sunday Telegraph Review section, was inspired by Repton’s design and creation of legacy architecture. Repton presented his proposals to clients in the form of red morocco-bound volumes that became known as his ‘Red Books’, many of which survive today. Prospective clients looking for a creative partner often have to rely on word of mouth which can be a slow process, yielding only one or two names.


And who can be sure whether an architect or landscape designer recommended informally will provide the best possible match of vision, personality or budget? By using RedBook, clients receive tailored, independent advice on a wide range of the very best practices so that they can then make an informed selection of architect or landscape designer with complete confidence that they are realising the full aesthetic and financial potential of their project, whether it’s their first or fifth. In practice, this means that all prospective clients will be interviewed by RedBook’s team in person at the outset to assess their needs and commitment - and to form an initial view as to the most appropriate match. The RedBook team members will then liaise with practices giving them a brief on the client’s project to ensure the client and the project truly appeals. Only then is the client put in touch with the practice. Of course, neither the client nor the practice is under any obligation to accept a particular introduction from the Agency. RedBook will represent up to 30 of the UK’s finest architecture practices whilst the landscape design practices will be limited to 15. The practices represented by RedBook cover the spectrum - from designing visionary contemporary buildings to Sandy Mitchell, founder, RedBook Agency restoring historic houses, from creating 45

cutting-edge landscapes to traditional town or country gardens - and they include the most experienced practitioners as well as brilliant young ‘stars of tomorrow’. The practices work in every corner of Britain and vary greatly in size of practice just as they do in their fees. Yet all


these practices share two qualities: exceptional talent and the highest degree of peer-respect. To ensure that this exclusive ‘club’ retains its exacting membership standards, RedBook relies upon a top flight advisory panel to select practices of the right calibre. The panel includes Clive Aslet, an expert on British architecture; Jeremy Musson, the architectural historian; Dominic Bradbury, architecture and design commentator; Sir Roy Strong, the design expert and well-known garden journalist Stephen Anderton. Clients will pay only a small registration fee up-front. RedBook’s revenue is earned from the practices represented, who trust the agency to introduce clients they will enjoy working with. There are no joining fees or other upfront expenses for practices represented by RedBook. RedBook aspires to help clients - and

the architects and landscape designers it represents - leave their own mark on the nation for future generations to enjoy and admire. Building or remodelling an apartment or house – or creating a garden – is a glorious opportunity that for many people comes along once in a lifetime. RedBook believes in doing everything possible to help clients make the most of that opportunity, and their investment in the project, whether it is in London, the country or abroad.

THE SPA GARDEN ... ... by NIRVANA SPA Next Summer indulge in a spot of pure escapism and enjoy the ultimate in outside relaxation at Nirvana Spa's beautiful new Spa Garden. Elizabeth Baxendale rediscovered her Nirvana and it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t raining!


irvana Spa, a simply magical retreat with award-winning facilities, far removed from the stresses of the world and tucked away in the peaceful rural area of Wokingham in Berkshire. Firmly established as the leading health, fitness and day spa facility in the country, a visit leaves you with a feel-good factor like no other, whichever of the facilities on offer you choose to enjoy or your reasons for visiting. Invited to relax, refresh and restore myself for a day in the tranquil yet stunning new Spa Garden at Nirvana Spa, how could a girl refuse? That all too rare LizzieB pamper moment in sight I was soon heading away from London and down the M4. Spa members I found with some envy can now experience the very best in outdoor rest and relaxation with the Club’s latest investment, the Spa Garden, a superb landscaped outdoor area adjacent to the Roman Room. This most impressive of new developments incorporates a refreshing and generously-sized 6 x 12m outdoor heated pool, four mini spa pools heated to 35ºC to ease those aching muscles and over 100 comfortable loungers enabling you to soak up that Summer sun when it shines. And it shone for me so I did! As I have come to expect of my Nirvana, the Club has covered every base. There was no need to move myself inside and away from the sun (honest!) whenever I started to feel thirsty or even that little bit peckish during the day. A

delightful al fresco dining area has been designed which allowed me to enjoy the same deliciously mouth-watering menu choices and variety of smoothies and hot and cold drinks as I had found on my previous visit to the Spa’s Garden Café. Made from the freshest of ingredients and ranging from light healthy snacks and salads to à la carte spa cuisine and some particularly naughty-looking yet highly tempting desserts decisions were difficult ones but I managed. The outdoor bar serving refreshments all day, the well-deserved chill-out time can be endless. You can treat yourself to a glass of bubbly or select from the wide range of smoothies, fruit juices, teas and coffees always on offer. The new outdoor relaxation pool is heated to a constant 30ºC and features the same ultraviolet light technology as all the other Nirvana Spa pools, keeping the water sparkling and sanitised whilst dramatically reducing the amount of chlorine added to the water. The Club has created with apparent ease the same uniquely relaxing environment outside as has always been found inside at the Spa. No detail left

unattended to, the Spa Garden includes discreet showers and toilet facilities with full disabled access. And if you forget your sunscreen, recommended even on the cloudiest of days, then the Spa Shop is on hand offering a full range of sunscreen and skincare products. The normal seasonal period of opening for the Spa Garden is April through to September, weather dependent of course! Nirvana Spa provides a wonderful luxurious environment and it is available for everyone to enjoy. For a few precious hours my cares and worries passed me by as I relaxed and rediscovered my Nirvana. So when will you find yours...?

... supporting Striking celebrity portraits were among dozens taken by top fashion and beauty photographer Chris Craymer to be auctioned on Thursday 12th April with all proceeds going to Kids Company, the charity founded by Camila Batmanghelidjh in 1996 to provide practical, emotional and educational support to vulnerable Inner City children.


pril 2012 saw the launch of a portrait portfolio, In London, by prolific photographer Chris Craymer, featuring over 120 portraits of London-based people, some famous, some not. The book is an intriguing melange of people whose portraits somehow capture the spirit and essence of this exciting capital city in a year that puts London firmly centre stage. As Chris puts it, “Every city creates a certain style of person in a way, by attracting all sorts of different people.” Despite achieving great success as a commercial and editorial photographer, Chris has constantly created his own work for personal projects, delivering images that feel spontaneous, intimate, charming and above all alive. In London began with a shoot for Italian Vanity Fair. “We did two shoots where we got all these different people in that we felt were representative of London,” Chris recalls. “The idea was to retain ‘elements of their own style’. We Robert Pattinson, actor 58

gave them a choice of what they wanted to wear, and they supplemented what we did.” It was an intriguing new departure for Chris. “This idea of fashion portraiture,” he says, “where you are actually trying to say something about the person, trying to reflect what I felt about these people and at the same time trying to show them in a light that was in keeping with their character.” Feeling inspired, Chris set up a series of open studio days in London and invited a mix of people to come along and pose for him. In London includes many of these shots, together with further portraits that Chris has taken over the past few months, from the famous - Annie Lennox, Russell Brand, Liam Gallagher, Dannii Minogue, Robert Pattinson, and Emma Watson to name but a few - to the unknowns singers, dancers, musicians, stylists, models, bike messengers, students, architects and designers, with ages ranging from 8 to 80, all photographed in

a way which brings out something that Chris sees as being an intrinsic part of the sitter’s nature. For example, he captures Robert Pattinson smiling - not something you see very often in most staged

portraits of the actor. “All his pictures are really serious, and yet I’ve managed to get him smiling” Chris says. “For me, that is part of him. It’s my take on him. To me he’s an open, friendly person.” 59

Photography from Chris Craymer’s Romance

In London was launched at a private event held in Shoreditch on Thursday 12th April. To ensure that all monies raised on the night went to the charity Kids Company, the evening was financially-supported by Ian Lillicrap of Lillicrap Chilcott, the Cornwall Estate Agent, and Tom Cary, a talented Cornishbased singer, songwriter and guitarist ( The total amount of the cover price (£25.00) of every copy sold was and continues to be donated to the lifechanging London-based charity, Kids

Company. Kids Company was founded by the charismatic Camila Batmanghelidjh in 1996 to provide practical, emotional and educational support to highly vulnerable Inner City children. Kids Company’s services reach 17,000 children across London, including those most deprived and at risk, whose parents are unable to care for them due to their own practical and emotional challenges. These exceptionally vulnerable children not only negotiate significant challenges in their family homes, they also face immense threat within their

neighbourhoods. Often they are exposed to relentless violence, some are forced into working as drug couriers or prostitutes, and many experience chronic abuse. Kids Company provides a safe, caring, family environment where support is tailored to the needs of each individual. The charity operates through two street level centres and a therapy house in South London, as well as a drop-in provision in Camden, North London. It also offers and provides therapeutic and social work services in over thirty schools. 61

“The work that Kids Company does is quite exceptional,” says Chris “and at a time when I have so many opportunities in my career it seems right to try to give something back.” This is the second publication that Chris has produced over the past three years. The first, Romance, was a magical collection of photographs capturing those special, raw moments which perfectly articulate the true meaning of romance. The couples featured in the book were all real couples with a strong

sense of personal style and individuality and in varying stages of what Chris has described as ‘pre-mortgage love.’ The 130 images, some in colour, some in black and white, still-life alongside lifestyle, are wistful, lustful, joyful and most importantly playful - the light, witty touch being an important element in much of Chris’s work. “Romance for me was the perfect vehicle to make pictures which can convey a number of emotions. I wanted to try to make pictures which could be sexy, funny, powerful and even

soulful.” Romance is still available to purchase through Amazon. The theme of Romance proved so popular that Chris is now working on a follow-up edition, Romance USA, which he hopes to publish this coming Autumn, work schedule permitting! London-born Chris first worked in newspaper photography and celebrity portraiture, eventually becoming the exclusive photographer for George Michael and Wham. He went on to develop a career in fashion and beauty photography, as well as shooting lifestyle and portrait photographs for clients worldwide. The increasing popularity of his work eventually led to him uprooting his family from their home in Putney, relocating to Westport, Connecticut, where he established a studio base in the centre of New York City. Despite his American base, Chris continues to work in the UK, most recently on campaigns for Clarks Shoes as well as the very successful TV commercials campaign for Dove. His editorial work regularly appears in American, British and French Glamour and Vanity Fair.
