Once a buyer is found we manage the sale closely so 91% reach exchange of contracts.


Curchods agree more property sales over £1m than any other estate agent in Surrey.* Surrey and south west London offers those lucky enough to call it home the perfect combination of unspoilt countryside, a thriving community spirit, excellent transport links and good schools. The appeal of living here is not lost on many and is also the reason why despite commentary in the national press, the health of the property market in these areas continues to fare well. There is growing evidence that house prices are stabilising, but getting a sale agreed when going to the market will depend entirely on good advice from a High Street estate agent and most importantly accurate pricing. What we do expect to remain constant throughout the rest of the year is an underlying market that is fundamentally sound. So when sellers are realistic and take good advice from a knowledgeable agent, sales will continue to be agreed; supported by the extremely low cancellation rates we are currently experiencing. Purchasers looking to buy a property in Surrey or south west London should take the view that despite peaks and troughs in the housing market, buying a property in the long term has always proved to be a good investment. I very much hope you enjoy reading our publication. To help you continue your search, you can find more than 2,000 properties on our website.

They say the path less travelled is the most rewarding. For owner Miles Hartwell, what started as a passion has become a lifelong adventure to create some of the bravest and most iconic lifestyle pieces ever made. Splinter Works are true design pioneers who re-imagine familiar objects and enhance the things you enjoy with ambitious, beautifully crafted, functioning sculpture. Most famous for their iconic Hammock Bath created in carbon fibre, it is completely suspended, providing the ultimate relaxing bathing experience. Splinter Works create award-winning slides, each a sculpture in its own right, beguiling shapes that belie their function as a rip-roaring ride to finding your inner child! Their portfolio of ambitious designs includes a levitating lounger, the Bodice Rocker, that can be positioned vertically as a sculpture, or nudged back into an elegant chaise longue. The Dime Cabinet is a wall cabinet that evokes a spinning

coin, a semi-sphere of walnut has a clandestine function, when drawn back the individual leaves reveal the function of a drinks cabinet. Their Stiletto is created in book-matched burr walnut and makes an exquisite desk or dressing table. Pieces can be tailored in any material and size or of course you can commission a unique piece where the designers will meet to discuss ideas and create a bespoke sculpture. Past projects include kitchens, dressing rooms, bathrooms, lighting, indoor and outdoor pool slides, bars, home office spaces, even a bespoke classic car garage. Splinter Work’s aim is to continue to create work that is engaging, inspiring and a delight to use. WWW.SPLINTERWORKS.CO.UK

EQUI TY RE LE ASE Equity Release is designed to help customers over the age of 55 who either own their property outright or have small mortgages left to pay. It is a way of releasing the wealth tied up in your property, without having to sell it and move to another home.

When borrowing to invest in a rental property it is important to ensure you have a clear understanding of the process and that your knowledge is up-to-date. We can help to clarify the benefits, risks and associated costs of borrowing to invest in rental property.


MORTGAGE SERVICES

MO RTG AG E SERVIC ES

Getting the most competitive mortgage that takes into account your personal circumstances, is easier than you think.

B

uying a property is singularly the largest financial transaction 99% of us will undertake in our lifetime. There is no denying that the process can be emotional, exciting, scary and at times stressful, so getting it right is incredibly important and can be immensely rewarding, providing both a wonderful home and often financial security. Historically, the first port of call to discuss financial matters would be the local Bank or Building Society. However, branch numbers of both of these establishments have significantly reduced on the High Street over the years, so it’s now important to seek other means of receiving sound, professional financial advice. The easiest way to ensure you have the most competitive and appropriate mortgage in terms of rate and criteria, is to deal with a fully qualified independent adviser who is acting for you, not the lender. An independent advisor will spend time getting to know your current position, your goals and aspirations and only then, will they make an appropriate recommendation. It is for that reason that in excess of 80%* of mortgages in the UK were arranged by mortgage intermediaries. At Curchods Mortgage Services, we have eight such experts with a collective experience of over 140 years in the mortgage industry. Curchods Mortgage Services also have access to exclusive mortgage schemes that are not available on the High Street, which puts us in an excellent position to provide the best possible independent, financial advice to our customers.

The Art Of Developing


NEW H OMES

There is something quite magical about being the first owner of a brand new home. When it comes to property, buying brand new offers much more than state-of-the-art fixtures and fittings (although they tend to be pretty impressive). It also offers you a sparkly new lifestyle and a host of additional benefits: • You can move in quickly as you don’t have to wait for the current owners to find their onward purchase. • They can come with a range of purchase incentives including: Stamp Duty Paid, Part Exchange and Help to Buy. • If you reserve at an early stage, they often allow you to choose your own fixtures and fittings, colour scheme and flooring, saving you valuable decorating time when you move in. We have more than 300 new homes for sale across Surrey and south west London, ranging from £240,000 to £4.65m, so if you’re interested in experiencing the feeling of brand new visit:

LIFESTYLE

Foxhills Country Club & Resort is a Surrey gem that offers something for all the family. A multi award-winning country club for over 40 years, Foxhills Country Club & Resort in Ottershaw is set in 400 acres of lush Surrey countryside and prides itself on providing both members and guests with a unique experience, one that combines outstanding service, luxurious accommodation and a diverse range of unique leisure facilities for all ages. Entering the Foxhills grounds along the sweeping driveway, you’re immediately aware that you have arrived somewhere special. Glimpses of one of the three pristine golf courses can be seen between the trees and beehives (yes, Foxhills make their own honey), and as you turn the last corner you are greeted with a magnificent view of the 19th century manor house, which overlooks a pristine golf course and is the centrepiece of the resort - and the perfect backdrop to many a special occasion throughout the year. Foxhills has an interesting history. Originally owned by Chertsey Abbey in the Middle Ages when it was just heath and woodland, it became home to parliamentarian and social eccentric, Charles James Fox in the 1780’s. The estate was finally named Foxhills and turned into a golf club in 1975 by the then owners, Aer Lingus (the airline), but in 1983 Pam and Ian Hayton purchased the club and with the help of their son, Marc, who today is Managing Director, set about creating a multi award-winning familyfriendly leisure resort. Although it offers a fantastic range of membership packages, Foxhills is not a

members-only destination, welcoming anyone to relax in the spa for the day, book afternoon tea or a sumptuous evening meal or stay overnight in one of the luxury bedrooms, suites or apartments.

What surprised me the most when I first visited Foxhills is that it’s so much more than a golf course. The list of activities available for all ages continues throughout the resort - for water lovers there are four swimming pools (both indoor and outdoor), a hot tub and a ‘first of its kind at a British hotel’ - an Organic Plunge Pool (the water is cleaned by the plants that live at one end of the pool)! The Yoga Cabin is a new and exciting, soon-to-arrive addition to the Foxhills facilities. Due to open June 2019 it is built from sustainable, natural timber and will provide a calm, relaxing space where a team of instructors will lead a series of yoga, pilates, reformer pilates, tai chi and meditation classes. EXC LUSIVE FOX H ILLS MEMB ER S O F F ER

Sell your home with Curchods and upon completion, we will credit your Foxhills Membership Card with £500. Call your local Curchods branch to arrange a free valuation of your home. Terms & Conditions apply, please enquire for details. Read more online by visiting: WWW.CURCHODS.COM/BLOG/FOXHILLS


Encouraging children to get into all sports from a young age is something Foxhills prides itself on. There is an extensive list of activities for children to take part in, from swimming lessons for 0-2 year olds, tennis and golf taster classes for 6-15 year olds, junior fitness classes, a youth club with an after-school programme, an outdoor adventure playground, soft play area and a 2.5km cross-country Trim Trail through woodland. Why not book the children into a class and spend some quality time for yourself in this award-winning resort.

LAND DEVELOPMENT

Does your property or land have development potential that could significantly enhance its value? Land development is one of the most complex aspects of residential property, but it can be the most financially rewarding. We are regularly approached by home and land owners seeking advice on how to maximise the value of their property and whether it would be worth more with planning permission. Often the answer is yes, and we are well qualified to provide specialist advice on how to proceed. Generally speaking it takes 12-18 months to obtain planning permission and to complete the sale of a site, so if it is established that your property or land is viable for development, early preparation is key to ensuring the processes involved run smoothly. Our expert team at Curchods Land Development and Burns & Webber Land Development departments are able to advise on all aspects of planning, development and how best to maximise land value and profit.

Turning the key to this road-going race car, the engine emits a devilish rasp that snarls from somewhere behind you. It is time to experience everything the Porsche 911 GT3 RS has to offer... For the true drivers and petrol heads, the Porsche 911 GT3 RS brings all the thrills of a race car, yet defies almost all the downsides of traditional super-car ownership. First, it’s a pussy cat to drive, even in this ‘wide body’ version it has perfect manners around town. The steering wheel is thankfully round and it has a boot for storage. The interior is a wonderful place to be - despite the race car feel given by the roll cage and the instantaneous paddle shifters, it’s comfortable and civilised, yet performance wise to even come close you’ll need to look at the lightweight track specials from a company like Radical - I don’t know about you, but putting my crash helmet on every time I need to nip to the shop to buy a pint of milk isn’t my cup of tea. This is one of the few cars that seem to defy the laws of physics, the precision of the steering as you point the car to where you want it to go, the awesome traction as you tackle the corner and lean on the race inspired suspension; when you sit behind the wheel at full chat with the unmistakable exhaust note passing through every inch of your body, it really is every car enthusiast’s ultimate dream. Porsche’s attention to detail, quality and precision engineering are sublime,

but as with everything Porsche, it is function before form. So whilst the enormous rear wing and the cuts and slashes in the bodywork all look incredible, they are all designed for the single purpose of making this car faster and more enjoyable to drive, even the trademark badge has been printed onto the bonnet to save weight and improve aerodynamics.

A simple flex of your ankle brings the horizon towards you at an impossible speed – an addictive and utterly intoxicating feeling that is usually reserved only for fighter pilots. The rear mounted engine that 911’s are famous for defies the laws of physics – this 4.0 litre naturally aspirated engine is a lot like the 911 Cup Race car, with 513 bhp on tap it effortlessly pulls and pulls all the way through 7th gear and up to the 9,000 rpm rev limiter. After a spirited mix of A and B roads, you’re back on your drive, don’t forget to return a little while later with an ice cold Sauvignon Blanc or a beer to stand and simply admire the sheer beauty of the beast that is the Porsche 911 GT3 RS.

Few restaurants in Surrey have been adorned with an elusive Michelin Star, but The Clock House in Ripley continues to impress with its extraordinary culinary delights. Greeting guests with a friendly smile and attentive service, The Clock House strikes a wonderful balance that helps it retain regular locals whilst remaining a destination for those on the Michelin Star trail. Whether you’re dining in the formal restaurant or enjoying drinks in the relaxed surroundings of the beautiful walled garden, its calming and relaxed atmosphere makes you think twice about whether you need to travel into Central London to experience the finest in British cuisine. Immaculate table linen and a scrumptious pork and piccalilli amuse-bouche set the scene for a two hour feast for the senses, in the form of the lunch tasting menu. There are some real touches of culinary genius here, with perfectly seasoned meats and fish matched to seasonal and creatively displayed vegetables; sure to please Instagram foodies as it looks too pretty to eat. Particular favourites include the slow cooked duck egg with asparagus and cured ham and Hanger steak with sumptuous smoked beetroot. With the waiter spending time introducing each course and how it has been perfectly paired to

one of a selection of British and international wines, the service certainly matches the food as a truly memorable dining experience. The Clock House can be hired for intimate weddings and private functions for up to 40 guests, and has a lovely semi private alcove off the restaurant seating up to 10. What better way to spend a sunny afternoon celebrating with friends and family, than enjoying sublime food and service in a private semi-rural setting. It’s easy to see why The Clock House has retained a Michelin Star for the second year running, plus a host of other accolades. Finishing the experience with a palette cleansing goat’s mik panna cotta and sorbet made from rhubarb grown on site in the walled garden, you will leave feeling comfortably full and your wallet will thank you too - at £55 for the lunch tasting menu (5 courses), to £90 for the evening tasting menus (7 courses), or £70 for the a la carte menu (3 courses), The Clock House in Ripley stands out as an accessible destination that delivers full bodied flavours you’ll want to return to again and again.
