Persuasion

A town-house transformation • Monmouth House, Hyde Park Gate, London SW7 A home of Mr Hamish OgstonThe shell of an 1860s coach house has been internally reconfigured to dazzling effect with the help of the finest contemporary craftsmanship.

Getting to the pointer • They are arrestingly handsome, built for efficiency and have an unmatched prey drive, yet German shorthaired pointers are a rare sight in the field, laments Arabella Byrne

Young, gifted and thriving • Escaping to the country is a long-cherished retirement dream for many. But, as Fergus Butler-Gallie discovers, an increasing number of young people are making the move and bringing valuable skills with them

Weeding between the lines • On a breathlessly hot day in July, John Lewis-Stempel mounts an attack on ‘injurious and noxious’ weeds with the help of his trusty little grey Fergie tractor

A close call • With the curlew–that wader with a haunting call–now almost extinct in the South of England, Simon Lester meets the Duke of Norfolk, who is hoping to pull them back from the brink on his West Sussex estate

The designer’s room • A soothing palette of colours lends a calm feel to this recently decorated room at Lime Wood hotel

Soft seats • The most comfortable slipper chairs, selected by Amelia Thorpe

Luxury News

High Five • The scent of a summer holiday has the power to transport

A few of my favourite things • Former racing driver Mark Webber is lauded for successes across different motorsport disciplines, having achieved multiple race victories during his 12 seasons in Formula 1, before making the switch to endurance racing and winning the FIA World Endurance Championship in 2015. Now a racegoer as a Rolex Testimonee and television pundit, he lives with his wife, Ann, and his two dogs, Sammy and Saxon.

Bathing beauties • Keep your cool and stay stylish in the sunStyled by Hetty Lintell. Photographed by Paul Zak

Heroic restorations • Three fine country homes have had new life breathed into them by their determined owners

In with the new • There’s no doubt about it–new-build homes are increasingly popular. From convenience and preference for local materials to environmental benefits, Annunciata Elwes finds out why

Instant gratification • Tiffany Daneff visits a recently built property in the Home Counties, which proves that, with forethought, a new garden needn’t look new

Paintings of a lost world
