Despite continuing economic and political uncertainty, the demand for prime property, and investment in commercial assets, are still showing signs of strength.
The latest issue of Knight Frank’s Private View showcases some of the most extraordinary and unique properties currently on the market.
Private View features a small, but exceptional sample of properties including the magnificent Grade II-listed St Saviours House in London, the historic Grade I-listed Worlingham Hall in Suffolk, and the grand Villa La Favorita in Spain.
As well as the best in luxury real estate, this year’s edition explores the theme of ‘legacy’, paying particular attention to established brands and renowned family institutions who have cemented their name in history.
It includes interviews with GP Hinduja, Claire Williams (of Williams F1) and George Carnavron, 8th Earl of Carnarvon, “all of whom are different, but who have thrived by evolving, working tirelessly and remaining true to their core values to leave legacies that will last for generations to come,” says Andrew Hay, Global Head of Residential for Knight Frank.
Private View also explores the iconic couture of Mary Quant, the haute cuisine of Michel Roux Jr. and delves into the world of pearls with the Paspaley family.
“Knight Frank is now in its seventh generation and like all institutions that have a legacy it is essential we evolve, be agile and invest, in order to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow,” says Hay, when contemplating Knight Frank’s own legacy in these uncertain times.
