Editor’s

LETTER

I

t’s an age old stereotype of the British public that we are intolerant towards children; that we adhere to the ‘children should be seen and not heard’ school of thought. Pish posh! Curmudgeonly we may be, but attitudes are rapidly changing and every public institution worth its salt has cottoned on to all things child-friendly. Imagine not being able to order a round of babyccinos in a coffee shop. Unthinkable! With this in mind, we’ve rounded up the best local places to take the little darlings, with the help of new parent essential, the WOWMUM phone app. Mr & Mrs Smith have also recommended their top British resorts that cater to little ones via their latest venture, Smith & Family. Yes, even the purveyors of naughty weekend getaways have embraced all things family-friendly. Elsewhere in the magazine, we’ve an exclusive peek at the innovative home of interior and product designer Ben Rousseau, Chantelle McCallum chats to TV and sporting pin-up Kirsty Gallacher on page 27, and we take a look behind the innocuous doors of Hammersmith’s Sipsmith distillery on page 65. Lastly, I wanted to mention Chiswick actor Richard Briers, who sadly passed away recently from emphysema. A truly talented gentlemen, it is his endearing voice as Fiver the rabbit in Watership Down, a cartoon that on every other level terrified me as a child, that I will remember. Here’s to our absent friend. Until next month

MOUNTAIN HIGH Chiswick resident Nicholas Brown is aiming to climb Mount Aspriring in New Zealand in December 2013 to raise £10,000 for the Multiple Sclerosis Society (MS) and Prostate Cancer UK. He describes his upcoming challenge as a ‘celebration of life’. Good luck from all of us at Absolutely! You can sponsor Nicholas at: uk.virginmoneygiving. com/NicholasicBrown

RIVERSIDE STUDIOS Japanese artist Hiroko Imada presents an inspiring and dynamic exhibition of her work at Riverside Studios Gallery. A graduate of the Slade and a Londoner for over 20 years, Imada has drawn much of her artistic stimulation from the London riverside itself. So although this collection largely examines and expresses the wonder of nature and movement, it is also inextricably linked with its apt location. This showcase seems not only apt but a wonderful opportunity to see her paintings and rare print works in the flesh, but more importantly, in their element. riversidestudios.co.uk

KEEPING UP WITH THE JONESES

AFTER ALYSON

Voltaire is London’s hippest new joint – a unique champagne and cigar hangout – and the launch party went off with a bang with entertainment provided by Chiswick’s most harmonious couple, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Richard Jones. The husband-and-wife team provided an eclectic DJ set under their musical guise, Mr & Mrs Jones, as guests quaffed Pommery champagne and enjoyed the benefits of an alfresco cigar terrace. voltairebar.com

By day, David Sindall works at the Association of Train Operating Companies, but at night he indulges his true passion; writing. The Chiswick-based author has just published After Alyson, a semi-autobiographical story of a man living with a hearing impairment (as Sindall himself does) and trying to mend a broken heart by seeking solace in the Devonshire town of his childhood holidays. After Alyson by David M. Sindall, £7.99, published by Troubador is out now.

URBAN WARRIOR

The West London Art Factory hasn’t been around all that long, but they’ve already become an established part of the city’s vibrant art scene. Promoting the work of up-and-coming artists as well as holding innovative live music events and installations, the studios recently hosted a one-off live painting evening with the urban street artist Fin DAC, which drew a crowd of art aficionados. Unit L, 140 Wales Farm Road, W3; westlondonartfactory.com

BLUE PLAQUE OF THE MONTH – Sir Michael Balcon – Ealing Green, W5

Best known for his role in the formation of British cinema, Michael Balcom was born in Birmingham in 1896 and started his career as a jeweller’s apprentice. After World War I he formed the production company Victory Motion Pictures and released his fi rst fi lm in 1923, Woman to Woman. After a few years with this company, Balcon took over a studio just released by the Hollywood company, Famous Players-Lasky, which were to become Paramount Pictures. One of Balcon’s employees at this time was Alfred Hitchcock, who got his first directing job from Sir Michael. In 1938 Balcon was asked to head up the studios at Ealing and went on to produce some of the defi ning fi lms of the era such as The 39 Steps and Passport to Pimlico. 13

The Colour and the Shape

Chiswick painter Orlanda Broom on her colourful approach to travel and art

T

he paintings of artist Orlanda Broom positively burst with colour. At first they appear to be comprised of abstract shapes and formations, but look for a minute longer and the organic matter begins to emerge. Blooming, vibrant flowers, swooping, exaggerated leaves and branches make up vivid, almost surreal landscapes painted obsessively – layer upon layer. Broom works in acrylic but the medium isn’t immediately obvious with the layering effect and glossy resin, which gives the canvas a glass-like sheen. Approaching the opening of her exhibition, Traces and Trails (the name referring to the smaller roads and tracks all

over Tobago, called traces, and the method of painting from memory, so that only traces of the reality exist) at the Stephanie Hoppen Gallery between 14 March and 13 April, Absolutely took a look behind the scenes at Broom’s Chiswick studio. What is your art all about? Well, I’ve kind of come full circle with it. I went to Cheltenham and Gloucester College of Art then did my Masters in Barcelona. When I was at college I did really bright, abstract paintings with anthropomorphic shapes. I lived in Portugal for quite a long time and over there I was doing very traditional landscapes – really huge ones in dark colours and streaky trees. Now I’ve cheered up a bit!

How long have you been painting in this style? I’ve been using the resin for about three years now and that’s changed the way I paint. Because I layer it up, it’s almost like painting with glass. You get these really defined marks. The resin goes on like a varnish and then I work over it. I love that you can’t really plan it. Do you plan what you’re going to paint beforehand? No, not at all, I think of some element that I want to get across as a starting point. The process is very organic, I just paint as I can at the beginning without worrying about anything and then I find that I can work out the bits I don’t like and I find the composition from that really. I turn the canvases upside down, on their side – it’s just about looking at what I have at a certain point and trying to find a composition within that.

Arts & Culture

PICTURED: SILK COTTON TREE BELOW: MOUNT IRVINE

When you’re building up the layers, do you ever make mistakes? If so, what do you do? I just carry on. That always happens and I do abandon some but I keep the canvas and I’ll get it out again about a year later and just re-start. The beauty of working with the resin is that you can build up the surface so it doesn’t matter if you’ve made a bit of a mistake. What inspires you? I’d say travel. I go to Tobago a lot because I have family out there. I also go to Kew Gardens regularly and sit in the hot house there. I get inspiration from all sorts of places.

How did you make a career as an artist? I had a bit of a hiatus after I did my MA, I was only 21 when I finished. I kind of rushed through as I didn’t do A Levels and went straight to art college. Initially I found it quite difficult to know how to place my art. I came out the other end of my degree and MA not really knowing quite what to do or where to begin with approaching galleries. It was ridiculous really. I kind of floated around a bit. I went back to Barcelona for a while, then I went to Portugal and taught English. That was great because it was easy to work around the timetable. Early mornings and evening were my teaching times so I had the day to be in the studio, and I just got back into painting. I’ve got a show in Paris at the moment as well as the Traces and Trails exhibition and I’m sending some work out to Cape Town. I’ve never been quite so busy, I’m doing really long days here! How would you advise someone who wants to be an artist professionally? You have to accept rejection without it affecting your confidence and thereby affecting your work. Keeping in contact with what other artists are doing is great as lots of people are in the same boat. There’s quite a lot of mystery about the art world and by talking to other artists you can get to understand the ‘rules’ about how things work because nobody really tells you! What artists do you admire? I love Peter Doig and Albert Irvin, they’re two of my favourites. David Hockney is amazing. I went to the London Art Fair recently, there are lots of brilliant contemporary artists. What’s really nice is that there’s resurgence in painting. Traces and Trails is on at Stephanie Hoppen Gallery from 14 March-13 April; orlandabroomartist.com 15

K

eeping your little ones well fed, entertained and in clean clothes is a daily battle that every parent faces. No wonder it’s so tempting to stick the little darlings in front of CBBC all day long. We Londoners, however, are blessed with a plethora of museums, green spaces and activity centres to keep the kids entertained and inspired all day long. But, if we venture into unfamiliar territory, it’s difficult to know where to go that will accommodate children. This was a particular problem that mother and entrepreneur Jennifer Chen encountered, and led her and co-founder Shruti Veeramachineni to set up WOWMUM, a handy new free app designed to make life easy for mums and dads on the go. Split into three categories – Eat, Play and Pamper – the app lists over 3,000 London locations (and 10,000 nationwide) to pinpoint the ideal location for whatever your family needs then and there; from breastfeeding spots to restaurants big enough to park the Bugaboo. There’s even a nappy changing ‘panic button’ for emergencies. We put the app to the test and have rounded-up the best local family-friendly venues, and we’ve even included some family friendly hotel recommendations from Mr & Mrs Smith.

PLAY

TINY MAESTROS Tiny Maestros offer fun and interactive creative music classes for babies and toddlers. Led by director Katherine Sayles, a graduate of The Royal College of Music, the workshops are held in Richmond, Chiswick and Barnes and introduce children to music through exciting stories and songs, instrument work and games that are tonnes of funs as well as having educational benefits. tinymaestros.com

PLAY

THE PARK CLUB As well as offering state of the art facilities for its adult members – including a gym, three pools, spa, bar and restaurant – The Park Club also benefits from a secure private space, larger than Ravenscourt Park, where children of every age can get fit, play in the woods, swim, take part in a range of sports and meet other children. There’s also the temptation of a multitude of outdoor and indoor classes, activities and events, ranging from sports classes to skill-based and creative activities. During half term and school breaks, the Club’s Rangers host holiday clubs and coach sports camps for children. In addition ‘Urban Parx’ offers children over 11 years a place to meet with friends and chill out. East Acton Lane, W3; theparkclub.co.uk 19

GIRAFFE Yes, it’s a chain, but somehow Giraffe manages to pull off the atmosphere of a restaurant that’s been in the local area for years, and kids love the fun and excitement of it. Try the branch on Chiswick High Road and treat your kids to mini mains – pasta, salmon, hot dogs and popcorn chicken – and don’t scrimp on the delicious desserts. 270 Chiswick High Road, W4; giraffe.net

THE ICKWORTH HOTEL

OUT OF TOWN

SMITH & FAMILY The purveyors of luxury travel, Mr & Mrs Smith – AKA Chiswick-based couple James and Tamara Lohan – have expanded their repertoire with the launch of Smith & Family. We asked the couple for their top British family-friendly breaks... The Beckford Arms, Wiltshire A family-friendly Wiltshire pub with rooms, The Beckford Arms is perfect for a weekend of lazy lunches and rural rambles. This gorgeous gastropub’s child-welcoming credentials come not in the form of toddler kit on tap, but in the laid-back atmosphere and amenable attitude of the staff. In the food department, a tailored menu for little Smiths features staples such as fish ‘n’ chips and pasta carbonara, and dessert has been turned into an art form with DIY sundaes. Rooms: Eight, including one suite. Rates: From £165 excluding breakfast.

WOWMUM is available on Apple App Store; wowmum.co

The Ickworth Hotel, Suffolk Beautifully feel-good and family-friendly, The Ickworth hotel in Suffolk is the country-estate hotel to take your children to. There’s plenty of fun to be had in the fresh-air – explore the forest, fields and formal lawns of the 1,800-acre estate, then relax guilt-free over dinner with the kids safely tucked up in bed upstairs. For dinner en famille, the Conservatory restaurant serves an all-day brasserie-style menu of local produce in the eponymous Grade-I listed structure and is well set up for family dining, with high chairs, crayons and kids’ cutlery on hand. A great children’s menu showcases the same quality-

produce ethic and the chef is also happy to make fresh organic baby purées. The crèche is first-come, first-served, so book ahead or get a babysitter if you have spa plans or want to eat out. Rooms: 27, including interconnecting options and a one-bedroom suite. Rates: From £165 including à la carte breakfast, service, a daily crèche session (subject to availability) and one free ticket per guest to the National Trustowned Ickworth House and Park. St Moritz Hotel, Cornwall Across the estuary from Padstow, the Art Deco-style St Moritz Hotel caters to all ages with bright and airy family-friendly suites, a Cowshed spa, restaurant and swimming pools – plus surfing on the doorstep. A kids’ club during school holidays ensures little ones are entertained (and parents rested). Little Smiths will find the school-holiday clubs bring a sociable side to staying at St Moritz. There are swimming pools, indoors and out, with a raft of games and tech to keep children entertained in all weathers. There’s a choice of beaches on the doorstep: below St Moritz is the Greenaway, which mixes coarse sands with purple and green slates and plenty of rockpools. Rooms: 45, including 15 suites. Rates: From £105 including full English or Continental breakfast. All rates include tax and are a lead in price for a double.

An Education Express yourself – Absolutely rounds up the top three creative academies and classes

02. INNOVATION DANCE

01. SCHOOL OF COMEDY

A new addition to the already brilliantly successful School of Comedy, this ‘mini’ after-school club has been set up in Barnes for children aged 4-7. Having already spawned its own E4 series, the school has now expanded to offer even more children the opportunity to discover comedy through learning the basics of improv, sketch and character comedy. A great opportunity for exuberant and lively children to learn and, most importantly, to have a giggle. schoolofcomedy.com

The ‘street’ dance phase refuses to wane, so it’s good for kids to know that Innovation Dance specialise in this genre. The company provides extra-curricular dance classes for schools across London and the Pitshanger Lane studio is open to children who wish to attend an extra class or study a different dance style. The teachers all have professional dance experience and impressive CVs, including appearances in West End shows and music videos. The classes are fun, but the importance of dance as a great workout and confidence builder is also recognised, which is why the school classes work towards a performance at the end of each term. innovationdance.co.uk

03. ARTS ED

Located in the wonderful Cone Ripman House and founded in 1939, the Arts Educational School has become the go-to place for those who wish to explore and develop their creativity and talents for performance without sacrificing their academic aspirations. The balance between the two disciplines is best exemplified by the high standard of exam results in conjunction with the success of their alumni, which includes actors Martin Clunes, Charlie Brookes and Nigel Harman. The independent secondary school caters for those aged 11-18 and is ideal for enthusiastic and talented children. artsed.co.uk

IN OTHER NEWS This April, Kew Gardens are running the Kew School of Botanical Illustration, an exclusive 10-day course working in pen, ink and watercolours. The course is run by artist Annie Farrer and is suitable for both beginners and professionals alike. Course runs from 4 - 15 April and costs £695. For more information, please visit kew.org

A Question of Sport Sky Sports pin-up Kirsty Gallacher on fitness, family time and how female presenters are conquering the small screen WORDS: CHANTELLE McCALLAM 27

Apr_Lead_Interview_v3.indd 27

07/03/2013 16:53


I

n the male dominated world of sports journalism, there are only a handful of women who have firmly established themselves as credible reporters, and Kirsty Gallacher is one such example. Today I’m meeting the Edinburgh born presenter at Westfield London to talk about her latest role as ambassador for Cardio Tennis, a new group fitness based workout. As we take a seat in one of the many coffee shops in the centre, Kirsty takes out a bottle of water from her bag and grabs some popcorn to snack on. Although surrounded by sport when growing up, the daughter of former Ryder Cup captain Bernard Gallacher was more interested in fashion and planned to become a fashion journalist. So how did she end up worlds away in the Sky Newsroom reading the football scores? ‘I was at the London College of Fashion originally, and I was at a dinner for my dad who was the captain for the European golf team,’ she explains, ‘the bosses from Sky Sports

asked me to go and have a screen test and I said no, and then they kind of pestered me and I did it. It was awful but they offered me a job on the golf team as a runner. I never actually wanted to be a presenter.’ There was no special treatment for the Scottish lass as she continued to work up to the position of editorial assistant, but it was the launch of Sky Digital which provided her with her first big opportunity. ‘They [the producers] said we’re sending you on a presenting training crash course, and you’re going to be one of the presenters on Sky Digital.’ Undeterred by a far from perfect first screen test, Kirsty’s bosses must have seen potential. Aside from her discernible beauty, she is also extremely personable, so much so that at certain points throughout the interview I feel like I could be catching up with a friend over coffee. Counting the likes of leading female sport presenters Gabby Logan, Kelly Dalglish, and Clare Balding as friends, Kirsty has

always been in good company, but what is it about herself and these particular females that has earned them respect from viewers and colleagues alike? ‘If you leave no stone unturned, work really hard and prove that you know what you’re on about, then you gain the respect of not just your viewers but of your producers and bosses as well,’ she asserts. ‘I think you should always be working, always coming up with ideas. I question things all the time... be vocal, not bossy.’ After starting out as a sports news presenter, Kirsty ventured into light entertainment via Gladiators on Sky1, Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway on ITV1 and The National Lottery. But with sport being one of her primary loves, it was inevitable that she would return to Sky Sports. Although she has had an extremely busy and successful career, she categorically states that her main priorities in life are her two sons, Oscar, five, and Jude, two. With so much going on, the former model admits that fitting

interview, that she is unwaveringly humble. Being a very private person, you also won’t find her splashed across the gossip pages of the tabloids. I suspect this has been a contributing factor to the successful ten year relationship she has maintained with her husband, retired rugby star Paul Sampson. ‘We don’t do all that showy stuff, we’re just normal people and live a normal life’ she says. ‘I think that when couples are in the limelight and are always talking to the press, you can sometimes fall flat on your face.’ Another important ingredient she likes to add to her marriage is regular date nights. ‘As a couple you have to be very aware of spending time together without the kids, whether it’s just a nice dinner or a weekend away. We decided to do something different once a month and I think I took him to the cinema – how boring!’ She laughs.

“I love the restaurants in West London and Chiswick High Road is brilliant for shopping”

everything in can be ‘difficult,’ but she doesn’t see herself as exceptional. ‘There are lots of fulltime working mums, so I’m not that different to a lot of them’ she admits. ‘Sometimes I just want to be a mum and do the school run and do average things but then – saying that – it makes the time with them more special and weekends are so precious to me.’ Her daily routine starts early: ‘the boys wake me up, I don’t set my alarm really. Then I do the school run, I do all my mummy stuff in the morning and the tidying. I don’t drink alcohol during the week but then I’ll have a nice glass of wine at the weekend. I think you’ve got to be careful otherwise you will just exhaust yourself. It’s all about balance.’ A refreshing quality about Kirsty, and its prevalent from when we first meet and throughout the entire

Despite having such a busy work and home life, Kirsty still looks radiant and has a certain vibrancy about her. So what is her secret? ‘We’re a very healthy family eating wise’ she says, ‘all our food generally is organic, and I cook Quorn a lot. We also eat a lot of fish and I don’t really eat meat.’ Her beauty regime is strict but simple – her only ‘rule’ is to take off the harsh TV make-up before bed, preferably with a muslin cloth as it handily acts as an exfoliator too. She also swears by the advantages of chemical free products, citing Aromatherapy Associates as one of her favourites. When it comes to exercise, her routine consists of a high intensity workout in the form of either circuit training or tennis. Kirsty has always been a big fan of the sport, so her collaboration with the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) initiative, Cardio Tennis is a perfect partnership. The new group workout combines the countless health benefits of a tennis session with an informal, sociable atmosphere through the addition of playing to music. Having played tennis to a high standard when she was younger, Kirsty is extremely passionate about the initiative and describes it as a really good way of trying to break down the barriers: ‘I think a lot of people don’t play tennis because they think they can’t afford to,’ she explains, ‘but with Cardio Tennis, everything is included within the session so you don’t have to buy any of the equipment. It’s great fun too.’ As we come to the end of the interview, conversation switches to Friday evening plans and we both agree that west London is a great area to go out for wining and dining. ‘I love the restaurants in west London, and Chiswick High Road is brilliant for shopping,’ she enthuses. When in Chiswick, La Trompette, Hedone and High Road House are just a few of the many places she likes to visit, but it’s Chiswick’s Aladdin’s Cave, the Old Cinema, that is her absolute favourite, ‘I just love it, I’ve bought so many nice pieces from there and it’s so reasonably priced.’ The umpire (otherwise known as Kirsty’s manager) calls time on our amiable chat and as convention dictates, we shake hands as players do on the courts. Game, set and match. For more information on your local Cardio Tennis location visit allplaytennis.com 29

I’ll Never Buy Shoes Anywhere Else Again Recruitment manager Andrea Mahn had so much foot pain she could barely walk

T

his fit and active 40-year-old had been suffering from Plantar Fasciitis – a painful inflammation of the tissue on the sole of the foot. ‘I was treated by an osteopath, a physiotherapist and a sports therapist but nothing really eased the pain,’ explained Andrea. As her job involves a lot of standing and walking, life was becoming unbearable. She was also unable to partake in her favourite hobby, running. Then Andrea saw an advert for Foot Solutions and decided to pay them a visit. ‘I turned up hoping that someone would be able to help me,’ she said, ‘and it was the best decision I have ever made. The staff were knowledgeable, helpful and attentive and after half an hour of tests and examinations they found a solution. It was the most fantastic

service I could have imagined.’ Foot Solutions provided Andrea with custom shoe inserts and a special device to help stretch her feet at night. ‘The device gave me immediate relief from the pain, allowing me to sleep better and when the inserts were fitted in my shoes they made a huge difference.’ ‘I had faced the prospect of never being able to wear high heels – but I can now wear them for up to 14 hours if necessary.’ ‘I don’t suffer at all now. I can do my job and go running without constant pain. I will never buy shoes anywhere else again.’ Foot Solutions, 4 Red Lion Street, Richmond TW9 1RW Telephone 020 8940 1814, www.footsolutions.com/richmond-surrey

Beauty Notes Adding a splash of colour with Make Up Store and celebrating 40 years of Molton Brown

LIFE OF PAI Chiswick resident Sarah Brown put all her eggs in one basket when she set up Pai Skincare, and luckily for her, the gamble paid off. Taking an alternative approach to the beauty industry’s obsession with eternal youth, Pai promotes the idea that women want to feel confident in their own skin as opposed to looking 10 years younger. The new Age Confidence Facial Oil is the ideal antidote to these ‘quick fix’ fads. £45, paiskincare.com

Nip/Tuck

Absolutely catches up with renowned cosmetic surgeon Dr Alan Kingdon at the Aesthetic Surgery Clinic How did you get into the cosmetic industry? I started years ago doing hair transplant surgery. My particular area of expertise now is in liposuction. I went to the first ever world congress on liposuction in Paris in 1984. It caught my imagination and I got trained and started doing it then. How has the industry changed since you started working? In the 1980s cosmetic surgery was really the preserve of the rich and famous. Now, it’s accessible to everybody. Do you think there’s still a taboo with cosmetic surgery? Yes but ever so slight. The trend is towards more minor procedures. In the 1980s people were very secretive about it but now most people are quite open about it. Do you ever advise people against certain procedures? Yes, the last thing we ever want to do is persuade a patient to have a treatment that’s not suitable. If they have unrealistic expectations that’s a big issue too. Some people think they’re a blank canvas and they’re not – you have to work with what you’ve got. cosmeticsurgeryclinic.co.uk

Ealing W5, the new build house designed by Chiswick-based evolvearchitecture, wasn’t exactly plain sailing. ‘This project was several years in the making’ explains founder Natalie Sulley, ‘the site was classed as a brownfield site and was very neglected.’ Located on a backland site of abandoned allotments in south Ealing, the project was recommended for approval by the Planning Department, refused at Committee and granted on Appeal. The recently finished home is modern and light and a testament to Sulley’s hard work. It shows what can be achieved with London’s neglected areas. evolvearchitecture.co.uk

T

here’s one word that springs to mind when looking at the work of Ben Rousseau and it’s not exactly the most eloquent; it’s all very ‘cool’. The product and interior designer has a unique approach to design and his fingers are in many a creative pie – producing everything from furniture to art installations, shop interiors, marketing schemes and hotel suites. Characterised by a penchant for LED lighting, I initially assumed that Rousseau worked from the ubiquitous hip Shoreditch warehouse, so it’s something of a pleasant surprise to learn that he actually lives and works in leafy, conservative Chiswick. Though at one time Rousseau worked in Hackney (his workshop is currently in Acton), Chiswick is now well and truly home. ‘I love it here’ he says, ‘it’s villagey enough to feel as if you’re outside of London, but the transport links are

brilliant. I just love the vibe of Chiswick.’ The unusual four-storey 1970s house is in a secluded mews overlooking a marina and a stone’s throw from the River Thames. ‘The couple who owned it before were Swedish so they were quite design savvy’ Rousseau comments as we make our way upstairs to the living area on the second floor. There’s a very distinctive style to the house which mirrors its inhabitant’s taste to perfection. Undoubtedly influenced by modern, futuristic design, Rousseau isn’t afraid to indulge his love of kitsch 60s and 70s nostalgia too. The huge kitchen and living area space is comprised of white exposed brickwork with bold industrial furniture and stylish accents of London bus red. Rousseau’s handmade pieces and prototypes fill the house; a light up glass chessboard and large luminous food serving hatch spring to mind. Yes, it’s a boy’s toys paradise, but the house also accommodates the tastes and requirements of Rousseau’s 59

‘very supportive’ wife and two-year old daughter, which make it a welcoming, functional family home too. No doubt his daughter will grow up to find her friend’s parents homes rather dull in comparison. ‘A lot of the stuff in the house are prototypes or bits I’ve made for people and then they’re developed and I’ve kept the prototype.’ Rousseau says. It’s incredible to learn that practically every scrap of furniture was made by the man himself and every item tells a story – even an early table prototype which I rest my cup of tea on was once borrowed by Secret Cinema for a special showing of the film Prometheus. But where did the LED fascination come from? ‘I like to add another stimulant to the senses’ he explains, ‘I liked putting lights in furniture for entertainment and drama at first. I used that when I worked in events management.’ A car and extreme sports enthusiast, Rousseau originally indulged his love of hot rods and getting his hands dirty by signing up for an engineering degree, but felt stifled by the lack of creativity. This was resolved by dropping out of the course and eventually signing up for an art and design degree, which ticked all the right boxes of being technical, practical and creative. A rather nifty job in event production followed, working for clients

time to be in the workshop. ‘I love getting hands-on, sculpting, shaping things’ he says emphatically, ‘It’s so therapeutic. I don’t really have the time to do it regularly.’ Lucky then that his home doubles as an eclectic partial storage space for prototypes and homemade bits and pieces. ‘My wife has to veto against it being too wild’ he laughs. Rousseau’s passion and drive is palpable. It’s been over a decade since he set up the business, but his love of design and strive for inspiration is unwavering. ‘I feel very privileged to make a living out of what I do’ he acknowledges. The portfolio of Rousseau Design is expanding rapidly and the projects and products range from smallscale furniture to complex architectural and interior schemes. There’s also the ongoing collaborations with both the Swedish Ice Hotel and London Ice Bar, working in a medium that excites him both creatively and from a technical perspective. My personal favourite design though? A little metal ring secured to the wall to hold his wife’s hair dryer, fixed in perfect proximity to the bedroom vanity mirror. Handmade by Rousseau, of course. Some women have all the luck.

“I love to get hands-on, scultping and shaping things. It’s so therapeutic” such as MTV, which enabled Rousseau to carry on creating furniture and props whilst building up a network of niche clients. ‘I was meeting people who could afford cool furniture’ he explains, ‘so while I was working I was showing people my small portfolio and I got a couple of commissions through that. Word of mouth grew and eventually I needed to work full-time, so I decided to bite the bullet.’ Rousseau Design was set up in 2002 and it would seem that the sole bone of contention that remains for its founder is simply not having enough

The Gunnersbury-based designer’s original collection was launched in 1998 and incorporated Jamaica’s national fruit, the ackee.

If you have laid grass seed or turf it must be kept watered daily, so if the English weather doesn’t provide the rain expected you will need to do it manually. With our increasingly wet winters and summers it is also very important to aerate your lawn, which gives established grass more air and growing space and helps it to drain excess water away more efficiently. Easiest results are achieved with a lawn aerator machine or if you haven’t got space to get this in then a manual hollow tine aerator will do. kategouldgardens.com

That’s the Spirit Fred Beckett raises a toast to Hammersmith’s Sipsmith – London’s first gin distillery for over 200 years

65

Food DPS_V2.indd 65

07/03/2013 14:17


‘G

in is in’, so says Sipsmith co-founder Sam Galsworthy, and he’s not wrong. Along with friends Jared Brown and Fairfax Hall, Sam (formerly working at Fuller’s Brewery) decided to put his talents and expertise to his true passion – gin. And they’ve arrived at an incredibly good time; the resurgence in popularity of London’s former ‘go-to spirit’ has been fairly rapid, as these things go, though it’s had a bit of a tenuous existence. Originally bought to our shores in the latter half of the 1500s by the English troops from Holland – where they were fighting Spain in the Eighty Years War – gin calmed the nerves of weary soldiers before bloody battle commenced, hence the phrase ‘Dutch Courage’. This is when the gin craze truly began. But after the 1700s, concerned with this ‘mother’s ruin’ tarnishing

the nation’s reputation, the government made it very difficult for people to produce gin, with propaganda like Hogarth’s Gin Lane and Beer Street (Hogarth’s engravings being the contemptuous comparison between the debilitating gin and the more acceptable tipple, beer). After the Gin Act in 1751, license fees went up to £50 – the equivalent of £25,000 today, Sam tells me. ‘You also got £50 if you dobbed someone in for not having a license’ he continues, ‘so it was all about cleaning up this society of gin – this real speakeasy, Prohibition-like mess – that was creating very low and poor quality alcohol.’ This meant that only the best could afford to distil, and the gin era was high-quality and good again. Then it fell out of favour once more, until the British in colonial India started adding gin to their tonic (which they had to drink because

the quinine in the tonic killed malaria) and a lemon was added as part of their Vitamin C, but this too became rather unfashionable and was associated with old biddies sipping on their gin and tonics in their damp, cold houses. As you have probably gathered already; gin has been rising and falling in status ever since it first arrived, but now it is well and truly back on the radar. Sipsmith started distilling on 14th March 2009 and launched officially in June of the same year. It is, quite unbelievably, the first copper distillery London has had in over two hundred years. Sam is about as enthusiastic as you can get and every gesticulation and grin speaks volumes of his true passion for the ‘classic, authentic and traditional style of making gin.’ During our tour of the tiny Hammersmith-based distillery, he taps Prudence, the comparatively small copper

RECIPE: SIPSMITH SLING Bring a touch of sunshine to your kitchen with the boy’s spin on a Tiki classic – the Sipsmith Sling. pot proudly, who produces only 300 bottles of gin in every batch. ‘The heart of our promise is that we make things by hand in small batches. Smaller yield, better quality.’ The pipe from Prudence’s pot-still loops up and round to another container where the finished product is left to cool and simmer – the curve of the pipe at the top called the ‘swan’s neck’. This is the origin of Sipsmith’s signature swan design on every label, as well as a thin strip of copper. Sam insists it’s all about ‘making people rethink about what it is to be quality.’ ‘A really easy way of making gin cheaply is by using stainless steel,’ he explains, ‘copper is a hugely expensive metal, but it takes the salts and the fatty acids out. You can’t just talk quality; you’ve got to live it.’ Mid-tour, a small crowd of barmen come in to the warehouse and gather enthusiastically

around old Prudence, where they will learn what I have just been taught and the story behind the brand. ‘I think the way people are looking to buy is to consume less, but consume better,’ Sam says, ‘they want to know where it was made, who made it, when it was made, how it was made…’ He seems to have hit the nail on the head, and agrees that locals love the fact that they have a drink being made – quite literally – on their doorstep. I ask him if it was a daunting task to start up the trend of artisan gin again? ‘Well, hopefully we’ve triggered another movement,’ he replies. ‘I frankly hope there are lots of distilleries that begin to do what we do.’ And with that I’m taken for a little taster. Well, there are some perks of the job. sipsmith.com

INGREDIENTS:

• 40ml Sipsmith London Dry Gin • 20ml Cherry Heering • 10ml dark rum • 5ml Grand Marnier • 5ml Benedictine • 80ml pineapple juice • 25ml fresh lemon juice • 3 dashes Angostura bitters

METHOD:

Combine gin, Cherry Heering, rum, Grand Marnier, Benedictine, pineapple juice and fresh lemon juice in an ice-filled shaker. Shake well, strain over ice in a tall glass, top with Angostura bitters. And relax... 67

Food for thought

Eclectic, delicious and surprisingly affordable, Gemma Billington wonders what took so long to make a reservation at Quantus…

Quantus

38 Devonshire Road Chiswick, W4 020 8994 0488 quantus-london.com

S

tepping off the tube at Turnham Green station, there was recently an advert for Quantus restaurant, which implored the reader to go and say ‘hi’ to owner Leo. If you’re wondering how you will know who Leo is, don’t worry; he’ll make himself known straight away. When we visited we were greeted with zealous enthusiasm and guided to our cosy corner table, which he assured us was the most romantic spot in the restaurant. Talk about service with a smile. Quantus opened a little over two years ago, but there is a sense of it being a long established local favourite – as if it’s been in residence on the ever charming Devonshire Road for years. The natural informality is matched with a menu to beat any Michelinstarred eatery and its primary pulling power is undoubtedly the very reasonable prices (£17.50 for two courses and £19.95 for three during the week). It’s little wonder that the place was so

lively on a mundane Thursday evening. I had assumed that the menu was an Argentinian one, but it’s more of an amalgamation of modern European cuisines with a Latin core. The word ‘quantus’ translates as ‘how great; or ‘as great as’ in Latin. There are a number of nationalities in the kitchen and my starter of Tataki salmon is an example of the chefs’ flair and skill; it’s salty and cooked to perfection on the outside and delicately raw on the inside. After snacking on divine homemade bread with oil and vinegar – avoiding filling up completely though it’s awfully tempting – our main courses of Orecchiette pasta and Panko chicken stuffed with chèvre and leeks and green beans with truffle & garlic sauce arrived promptly. The pasta was served in a creamy stilton, asparagus, radicchio rosso and pangritata sauce. It’s a cheese lover’s dream, but the flavour wasn’t overwhelmed as it so easily could have been. My partner described the panko chicken as a ‘posh chicken kiev’

which was – I can assure you – intended as a compliment; delicious in its simplicity. The menu is wholly unpretentious with keen attention to detail in the flavoursome, inventive ingredients and combinations. We paired the food with a hearty Argentine Las Manitos Shiraz Malbec and had found a welcoming glass of fizz on our table upon arrival. Satisfied but, thankfully, with just enough room to spare, we rounded off the evening with an apple, pear and pecan crumble with vanilla ice cream and maple syrup. It was every bit as scrumptious as it sounds. Britain may be in the grips of a (seemingly never ending) recession, but that doesn’t mean we want to scrimp on enjoyment. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Restaurants are still doing good business as consumers are seeking high quality and entertainment. Quantus offers this in spades. So, if you haven’t been yet, go and say hello to Leo, as well as to your new favourite midweek treat. 69

THE HOTEL

The photographs from my long weekend in Edinburgh belie the gloomy, rain-sodden stereotype of the Scottish capital. Each one is positively sunkissed with clear blue skies covering the vast city; highlighting the Gothic architecture, green spaces and even a glimpse of the sea on the horizon. In truth, I’d been flukey with my chosen weekend, and it made the views from my deluxe room at the recently renovated Caledonian hotel that bit more special. Following on from a whopping £24 million investment, The Caledonian is an impressive new addition to the Waldorf Astoria portfolio. Originally built in 1903 as a railway hotel, the grand building pays homage to its glamorous Victorian roots – think marble floors, sweeping staircases and Murano glass chandeliers.

The Caledonian Hotel, Edinburgh THINGS TO DO DINING

Despite Edinburgh’s wealth of diverse restaurants, it’s tempting to stay within the walls of the Caledonian, especially once you’ve sampled the delights of the stylish Caley Bar. There are two restaurants, with Michelin-starred brothers Chris and Jeff Galvin at the helm; the Galvin Brasserie de Luxe, which is a nod to urban Parisian bistros, and The Pompadour, which is as opulent as its name suggests. We whiled away a surreal four hours with ease, enjoying the divine five-course taster menu of French haute cuisine and Scottish favourites. It probably helped that each and every course was paired with a finely matched wine too. A clear head the next morning is not guaranteed.

There are plenty of things to do in the city to occupy a long weekend. Five minutes away from the castle is the eccentric Camera Obscura and Museum of Optical Illusions, which is a surprising delight that will entertain both adults and children alike. Another must is the Edinburgh ghost tour. Mercat’s Hidden and Haunted walk takes you into Edinburgh’s historic and downright terrifying underbelly; the infamous Blair Street Underground Vaults. The selection of whiskeys at the Caley bar afterwards will serve as a welcome nightcap to steady your nerves.

THE BEDROOMS

All the rooms are decorated elegantly with neutral colours and fitted with luxury mod-cons, though each room differs in layout. The decor is beautifully paired back and rightly so; nothing competes with the stunning views.

ear mention of Lebanon and you may think of clubs, bars and restaurants in the capital, Beirut. Or perhaps you picture Mediterranean beaches towered over by ancient ruins. Skiing may also come to mind, and looming behind it all you may think of buildings reduced to rubble from the civil war that gripped the country from 1975 to 1990. The fact is that Lebanon is a melting pot of all the above, and much, much more. Thankfully times of turmoil are now fading into memory, and Beirut is booming – as Alain Feghaly, our tour guide, so aptly puts it; ‘buildings here are springing up like mushrooms.’ It’s a five-hour flight from London to Beirut and on arrival we are greeted in style. Forget a driver with your name on a placard, The Phoenicia greets its guests before they have a chance to mingle with the masses, welcoming them after luggage collection with a red carpet and their name displayed on a TV screen. The transfer (in a white Jaguar I might add) takes less than 15-minutes and within an hour of landing on Lebanese soil we are lounging by

the pool bar, Amethyste, nibbling on meze and sipping cocktails. The Phoenicia is not one of Alain’s ‘mushrooms’, rather it is a gem from Lebanon’s golden era, the swinging 60s, when the country became known as the ‘Switzerland of the Middle East’ and its capital the equivalent of Paris. Royalty, world leaders and celebrities (from Brigitte Bardot in the 60s to Angelina and Brad more recently) have graced the pillows of its 446 rooms, some of which have an opulent oriental feel, others have lighter French décor. Columns line Amethyste, softened by white linen drapes creating a colonial-cumGrecian feel. Super yachts line the marina below and a large projector screen hangs at one end of the swimming pool playing blackand-white classics. Our first day starts as all good holidays should, with an enormous buffet breakfast. The Phoenicia’s Mosaic Restaurant does a breakfast from heaven with different chefs serving different food behind different counters. There’s everything from typical Lebanese pastries and

breads, to eggs, fish, cheese, croissants, yoghurt and fresh fruit. Wondering if we’ll ever feel the twinge of hunger again, we follow Alain down the grand marble staircase and out into the city. Our first stop is the National Museum, a spacious and airy building with just enough artifacts (the first mention of Beirut is in 14th century BC – yes, that’s BC – and the museum has wonderful relics from the Bronze, Iron and Roman ages) to give you a feel for the city’s history without overload. Next we hit Downtown, grabbing a coffee in Martyrs’ Square, seeing the remains of a Roman bathhouse that was only discovered in 1968, and visiting the many churches and mosques which sit alongside one another reflecting the city’s multi-faith inhabitants. I am amazed how liberal people are – you see far more burqas and hijabs in London than Beirut. This is a Mediterranean city and most people wear shorts, skirts and airy clothes fitting to the warm climate. ‘Sometimes I think we Lebanese only live to eat!’ says Alain as we take a taxi to

THE PHOENICIA

Gemayzeh for lunch. Stopped in our tracks by an unusual traffic jam, we wait as a beaming bride stops in the middle of the road, bouquet in hand, and strikes a pose for her photographer using us as a nice backdrop. Tawlet is a restaurant with a difference; it is a non-profit organisation set up to bring people together (after years of conflict) with food and tradition. Literally, it means ‘table’ and the style is homely with an open kitchen mastered each day by one of 30 chefs from all over Lebanon. Our chef is from Tripoli, and for US $23 we pile high our plates with delicacies from the north including tabbouleh, baba ganoush and kibbeh (pounded raw lamb). Stomachs full once again, we return to the hotel for spa treatments. The ILA treatments are especially good and I opt for the Manipura Massage which involves 90-minutes of blissful scrubbing, massaging and poulticing. Relaxed and fully in the swing of things we head down to the marina for a drink before dinner at the hotel’s 11th floor French restaurant, Eau De Vie.

‘On a clear day you have eye contact,’ says Alain as we set off up the coast the next morning. ‘You can see Byblos from Beirut’. It is 37 km to Byblos, but we stop off enroute at Jeita Grotto, a breath-taking pair of limestone caves. The upper cave is home to the world’s largest stalactite, and the lower – inhabited since prehistoric times – bears an uncanny resemblance to the entrance to Hades. You even have to take a boat, although our vessel is steered Tony who, I must admit, isn’t quite as formidable as Charon. Byblos is one of the oldest constantly inhabited cities in the world – dating back to the Neolithic period in 5250BC, it makes the Romans seem modern. Originally a fishing village, the Phoenicians arrived in 4,000 BC, using their time in Byblos to come up with the alphabet. Lebanon’s geographic position means that since time immemorial it has served as a gateway to the Mediterranean from the east, and to Asia from the west. Other big names who inhabited Byblos were the Babylonians, the Persians, Alexander the Great and the

Romans who brought Christianity with them. To compliment culture with glamour, Eddé Sands, Lebanon’s most fashionable beach – ‘where people behave like peacocks’, says Alain – sits alongside Byblos’ ancient ruins. We have lunch overlooking the harbour before heading back to the hotel. After all, The Phoenicia is a landmark in its own right; locals and foreigners alike come to soak up the atmosphere, perhaps taking afternoon tea, sipping local beer or wine by the pool, or dining in one of the four restaurants which range from Lebanese to Italian, French and Asian. It’s no surprise this bastion of Beirut has celebrated its 50th Anniºversary and is still counting. Phoenicia Beirut) is from £226 per room/night.

SHEEN FALLS LODGE

HOTEL CIPRIANI, ITALY When booking a room at the Hotel Cipriani you can choose either a pool, garden or lagoon view – that is, unless you opt for the Palladio Suite, which has a wall of windows framing 180-degree panoramic views across the lagoon. Known as the ‘glass capsule’, this spacious suite has two bathrooms, a living room, dining room (where guests can host butler-serviced dinner parties) and a large terrace with a heated plunge pool and jacuzzi. The interiors are inspired by 18th century Venice with murals, marble floors and pillars; and there’s even a private garden and dock from where you can be whisked across to St Mark’s by boat. Once in town, why not go from one boat to another and take a gondola ride through the canals to admire the colourful houses and humpback bridges. Venetian queues are notorious, so make sure you book the ‘skip the line’ service (details below) so you can enjoy blissfully quick access to the main sites. In terms of food, the Cipriani has two

restaurants: the bistro, Cip’s Club, and finedining, silk-walled Fortuny Restaurant. Meanwhile, for traditional Venetian coffee and cake, head to the 18th-century Caffe Quadri in St Mark’s; for seafood stroll through the narrow streets to Palazzino G and order the Catalan Platter; and for those who want to step off the tourist trail, why not dine with a Venetian Countess and book dinner with Enrica Rocca at her palazzio-cum-cookery-school. All in all, it’s no wonder that when visiting Venice celebrities, royalty and world leaders (think Johnny Depp, Princess Diana and Ronald Regan) have stayed on Giudecca Island at the Hotel Cipriani. Rooms at Hotel Cipriani start from £927 per room per night, including daily American breakfast and all taxes.

SHEEN FALLS LODGE, IRELAND Southern Ireland is home to some extraordinarily spectacular scenery; Kenmare, in particular, offers breathtaking vistas at every turn. No hotel better exemplifies this than the luxurious five-star Sheen Falls Lodge, a country house near the famous nature trail, the Ring of Kerry. Guests are spoilt for choice scenically, with the stunning Sheen Falls winding around the back of the property – book a room overlooking these falls, it is a treat to wake up to the soothing sounds of a flowing waterfall – and a beautiful crystal-clear lake at the front of the building. Flying into Shannon Airport, we rented a car and drove the two-and-a-half hours to the hotel to take in the views. You can fly to Kerry Airport, which is roughly an hour’s drive, but the journey through Killarney National Park is not to be missed. Driving on the shoulders of mountains and through wooden glens, this reserve is home to Lord of the Rings-style pristine natural beauty. At this time of year there are barely any cars on the road, although you might have to contend with the local sheep. Serious relaxation begins at Sheen Falls Lodge,

take a trip to the spa for a Yon-Ka facial, or do a circuit of the jacuzzi, steam room, sauna and indoor heated pool. The hotel also provides a wide range of activities such as falconry, flyfishing and golf. The stables were undergoing refurbishment when we visited, but the hotel recommended the Eclipse Centre in nearby Blackwater Bridge, and an enjoyable afternoon was spent trekking through the rugged countryside on horseback (eclipseireland. com). Dining at the lodge is second to none, but before your meal pop down to the cellar for a tour of the extensive wine collection. Overlooking the falls, Le Cascade is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy a delicious meal by candlelight – pheasant breast en paupiette with sea buckthorn sauce, anyone? Packie’s restaurant in Kenmare is also a five-minute taxi ride away and is a brilliant alternative if you want to venture into the local village for a more casual affair. The lodge and the surrounding area offer sublime untainted nature – the perfect retreat. B&B rates from €89.00 per person sharing. sheenfallslodge.ie, discoverireland.com

VIVANTA BY TAJ, INDIA It’s not often you find a hotel with a threetone water vista: from infinity pool, to river and out to the deep blue sea, the only thing interrupting the view at Vivanta by Taj are palm trees laden with coconuts. Houseboats, backwaters and sunsets come to mind when you hear mention of Kerala, but word has spread, the tourists have flooded in, and few secluded spots remain. Thankfully, one of these idylls is Bekal, in Northern Kerala. Home to small villages, empty beaches and ancient forts, as of last year ‘secluded’ doesn’t mean slumming it as a new Vivanta by Taj came to town. With 64 rooms spread throughout bright white villas, a sprawling spa (the biggest in Asia, they say), two restaurants – seafood and Indian, as well as a poolside BBQ – this is the place to come for serious relaxation and pampering. Great for families or couples, there’s plenty to do including visiting Bekal Fort (the largest in Kerala), taking a trip in a houseboat, or making the most of the hotel’s grounds which can be traversed by golf buggy, bicycle or on foot. Strolling along the beach

at sunset shouldn’t be missed, and those who love activities can have a go at archery, kayaking, croquet, cookery demonstrations and early morning yoga sessions. There’s also a crèche – so it’s always an option to drop off the kids and head to the spa. Treatments range from facials and head massages (using curry leaves no less) to traditional Ayurveda therapies like Snana where you are bathed in herb-infused water, or Kati Basti where warm oil is poured over muscles to ease back pain. Enchanting-Travels and Taj Hotels offer a city-beach trip including a night at The Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai en route to Vivanta by Taj - Bekal in Kerala. A similar tailor-made itinerary of 6 nights, 7 days during high season (October 2013) costs £1,335 per person based on two people sharing. All domestic flights, breakfast, airport and hotel transfers, private city sightseeing, activities, fees and taxes and a 24 hour point of contact are included in the price.

You may know us from walking your dog in the park, local charity events or simply recognise a familiar face; we walk the same streets and eat in the same restaurants you do. Of course, it’s also quite possible that you – or someone you know – has bought, sold or let a property through us. We’ve been around for years and our success is built on the fact that people who use us once, tend to use us again. And tell their friends. Because most of our agents live in the areas in which they work, they really understand what matters to buyers and sellers there. Many agents will claim to know more about where you live than anyone else. But we understand it’s because people know us, that time and again we sell and let properties more quickly and more profitably than anyone else.

Tanya McFeely Tanya brings a genuine charm and generous spirit to all her business dealings. But don’t be deceived – she’s a tough cookie – and that sweet exterior belies a skilled – and dare we say it – somewhat hard-nosed negotiator with a great track record for selling Brook Green’s finest properties.

IN THEIR

OWN WORDS

ANDREW NUNN, DIRECTOR, ANDREW NUNN ASSOCIATES

H

aving worked as a director for a large corporate, based in Chiswick for 18 years I have many clients who I have helped move several times. 9 years ago I decided to move away from “corporate life” and open my own business. This has enabled me to concentrate on offering superior service levels to all of our clients at any point in time and across all sectors of the property market. We now find that in excess of 70% of our business is from referred clients or recommendations, which tends to lead to a better quality type of business. It has been interesting watching Chiswick develop over the last twenty five years, moving from a rather insular local west London suburb to an integral part of London and all it has to offer. In the 1980’s and 1990’s possibly 80% of property transactions involved Chiswickians moving “over the road” or “round the corner” in search of that extra room whereas today that represents only 25% of the market. In 2012/3 international buyers are choosing Chiswick as their UK base. Buy to let investors are snapping up apartments around the High Road and settling for the 4.5% yield rather than let their cash erode in the bank. European families are searching relentlessly and buying three and four bedroom homes around the £1million mark and the westward migration of buyers out of Notting Hill, Holland Park and Kensington are quickly securing the few top end properties coming to the market.

So demand is strong – what about supply? Limited supply is prevalent in the market due to a number of factors. In an aspirational, family orientated area the market needs property at the upper end to release stock further down. Top end property in Chiswick is generally not being offered to the market as owners have no reason to sell. These properties are long term homes of which many have changed hands over the last 10 years and are unlikely to be available to buy for another 10 to 15 years. Furthermore the tightening of the UK mortgage market is making it difficult for many aspirational buyers to secure mortgage funds to bridge the ever increasing gap between the price of their existing property and the type of property they wish to buy. The ability, over the last twenty years, of people being able to buy without selling existing property has also stifled supply levels as those buyers hold on to property and simply rent them out. A 4%-5% yield, with interest rates at 0.5%, is very attractive and therefore landlords are unlikely to sell any time soon particularly when you factor in CGT and other fees. So for as long as the UK continues to offer perceived political and financial stability, with low interest rates and a limited supply of housing stock (new build and second hand) then we envisage healthy capital growth for a few years. But there is always a sting in the tail and at some point, as history shows, buoyant markets don’t last forever. 020 8995 1500; andrewnunnassociates.co.uk

Laveli Bakery... For breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea the lure of Laveli is strong. From wonderful freshly baked bread available on a daily basis to quality coffee, pastries, savouries, cakes and plenty more mouth watering delights. Treat yourself.

Askew Wine Head down to Askew Wines for friendly and extremely knowledgeable advice. The selection of wines is wide and interesting, they stock our favourite Sipsmith Damson Vodka and to top it all have a fantastic selection of French cheeses for sale.

PRIME PROPERTY

Justin Knight, our new Director at Finlay Brewer, is making an impressive start in establishing our office at 113 Askew Road, W12. With an enthusiastic team in Juliet, Alex and Bryony, the aim is to build Finlay Brewer 2 into the trusted independent and local force that our office in Brook Green has become over the last 20 years. The area around the Askew Road has been building in reputation and popularity, but has had a particular burst of energy in the last couple of years. In this enclave between Shepherds Bush and Chiswick, a range of new businesses have seen the potential of the area contributing to the feeling of a thriving neighbourhood. With companies including The Ginger Pig and Leiths firmly putting down roots, the benefits for existing ‘Askew-ers’ and those thinking about moving to the area are clear to see. The area presents a range of opportunities for our clients across both sales and lettings and we are very excited to be a part of this uplift.

MARKET COMMENT – Justin

AYNHOE ROAD, BROOK GREEN, W14 £2,200,000

A fabulous 5 double bedroom family house situated close to Brook Green, in good order throughout, but with full planning permission (granted January 2012) to carry out a large basement extension. The house is currently arranged with a dining room to the front of the ground floor, well fitted kitchen central to the house, and with a conservatory with French doors to the rear leading on to the paved patio garden. There is also a spacious utility/cloakroom on this floor. The first floor has an elegant high ceilinged sitting room with bay window and additional sash window across the full width of the house over Aynhoe Road.

Knight, Director, Finlay Brewer The elimination of the fiscal-cliff in January prompted early optimism across global markets which seems to be reflecting positively in the property world – Finlay Brewer is certainly having a strong start to the year. Despite predictions the London property market has continued to hold its own throughout the economic crisis. Agents say it again and again, but it is an absolute truth that the lack of supply and the demand for property has kept a majority of London ‘safe’ from the crashes that have affected the rest of the UK.

Philip Wooller, Director of Philip Wooller, 020 8811 2929 Alice Perrers was a Mistress of Edward III in around 1368. He gave her 22 manors in 17 counties, including Hammersmith and Gunnersbury. The Manor of Palingswick was a moated manor in what is now Ravenscourt Park.

Susan Fitz-Gibbon, Director of Fitz-Gibbon Limited, 020 8892 8921 I adore outside spaces, so for me you cannot beat Richmond Park. I love the amazing annual viewing of the rhododendrons found at Izabella Plantation. Furthermore there are the ponds and of course the deer, which are fabulous to observe.

Joseph Murphy, Sales Director of Orchards, 020 8995 9797 During the summer months Chiswick House and Grounds is marvellous to take your bike out on a sunny day with the family! The other favourite is to take your children to the famous Southfield Primary School Carboot Sale on the last Sunday of every month – Time Out calls it the best!

Matt Thompson, Associate Director of Feather Stone Leigh, 020 8994 6567 For a quick catch up and a beer, the Roebuck is great. For supper, Chisou near Barley Mow Passage serves authentic and traditional Japanese cuisine. Currently, I’m spending most of my time in Hogarth Gym as I’m attempting the London Marathon, ouch!

PROPERTY NEWS

Paddenswick Road W6 £1,295,000 Freehold In 1812 the fine moated manor house of Ravenscourt Park was purchased by the Scott family who owned quite a lot of land in Hammersmith. They had a large brick building business and employed Humphrey Repton to advise on the development of St. Peters Square area and encouraged the building of smaller residences around the edges of Ravenscourt Park. By 1830 there were 78 houses within the park and by 1845 over 330. This building carried on and 140 years or so later we are selling one of them on Paddenswick Road! 020 8811 2929; philipwooller.com

Master Class: Maximise your exposure

Ensuring that your property is available to the widest possible audience, thus maximising opportunities from buyers, is obvious. Look to an agent that has the combination of unlimited internet exposure and advertising prowess. With JDW these elements are combined with the longevity and reputation of our brand. We have been around for 141 years and have the experience and technical know-how that has allowed us to build a database of buyers who register with us knowing that we will have the property that they desire. Traditional high street offices and presence are ever important, John D Wood & Co. have 17 offices throughout London, 6 in the country and 87 associated offices throughout the South East. This is a huge benefit as it means that our pool of active buyers is outstanding. Current numbers across our 23 London and Country offices as of the start of February 2013 are 13,500 prospective purchasers. This database will certainly outweigh your local agent on the high street. Edward Prickett, Assocciate Director, John D Wood & Co. 020 8940 6611; johndwood.co.uk

PROPERTY FOCUS ROBERT BAR, Sales Manager, Kerr & Co. 020 8762 0522; kerrandco.com

MOST SATISFYING TRANSACTION I’VE HAD... Selling a substantial family house on Hammersmith Grove before the midnight stamp duty change after budget 2012 thus saving a delighted buyer a significant sum of money.

MOST INTERESTING PROPERTY...

The list is long so it would be unfair of me to pick just one property. However, being a Who fan the ancestral home of Roger Daltry on Percy Road would be my favourite.

I NEVER THOUGHT I’D SEE... Having lived and worked in W12 for 17 years it’s very surprising to see the dramatic change that is currently taking place. The investment in the area is just phenomenal.

THE MOST FABULOUS COCKTAIL IS...

STYLISH BOUTIQUE...

So Bar, a comfortable and welcoming candle lit bar that specialises in fresh fruit cocktails and well-made classics.

Probably the tiniest but most wonderful restaurant in the town is Al Boccon Di’Vino in Red Lion Street, exquisite Italian food served by owner chef Riccardo in generous quantities, and the menu changes daily.

A chocolatier called William Curley, who serve a fine selection of chocolates and patisseries. But the crème de la crème of this chocolatier is the home made hot chocolate.

FAVOURTIE RESTAURANT...

LOST HOUR...

La Buvette has a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ about it, emulating a French Bistro both inside and out, serving superb food in an intimate surrounding year round.

Spring is an excellent time to make the move and sell, the key to a successful sale is realistic pricing, however recently I have seen the best properties selling for in excess of their asking prices. 020 7605 7760; marshandparsons.co.uk

DES DESMARAIS BRANCH MANAGER

DEREK FLETCHER ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR

The Chiswick property market is currently going through an unprecedented time. The supply of property is low and therefore cannot keep up with the very high demand. Prices are at all time high and many vendors are taking advantage of this amazing upturn. Although I wish I could predict the future, this trend is likely to persist for at least another year. This is an excellent time to think about marketing any property in order to maximise selling prices. 020 8994 5432; barnardmarcus.co.uk

After a sluggish start, due in part to the weather, the sunshine has not only brought the daffodils out but also the buyers. Despite continuing economic uncertainties property remains uppermost in most people’s minds and the continuing shortage of stock means house prices continue to remain firm and if the recent spate of sealed bids is anything to go by we are in for very busy year. 020 8995 9394; johndwood.co.uk

JAMES MATTHEWS, DIRECTOR As we approach the end of the first quarter, it looks like the market trend has been set for the year. The availability of property remains very limited, with an excess demand predominately from local people and those moving West from Central London. Chiswick is renowned for the great variety of housing stock, so given time we are usually able to source the right property for our clients. At Whitman & Co. we uniquely have a local sales team who are expertly in tune with both buyers and sellers requirements. Through repeat business and recommendations we always have the best selection of properties in the area. 020 8747 8800; whitmanandco.com 143
