Latest Lifestyle News: Growing the Property Ladder

The new year is often a time when we take stock of our lives and consider what we’d like to change. For many, it can be the catalyst they need for taking the plunge and purchasing their dream home – and if you’re of such a mind then we hope our headline story today serves to inspire you accordingly.

Step forward SJ Villas, who in recent years have gathered an unrivalled reputation for their portfolio of beautiful properties across the world. For 2018, the company had added a whole new glut of lavish homes to their roster, and we’ve decided to profile a selection of them in today’s newsletter. We hope you find our pick sets your pulses racing as much as ours.

Elsewhere this week, there’s an array of product launch news, including a stunning flower-themed watch by Louis Vuitton, and a special edition version of Franck Muller’s Cintree Curvex timepiece designed to mark the brand’s 25th birthday.

There are also reports on what will be Dubai’s largest tower when it opens in 2020, the newly revealed identity of the owner of the world’s most expensive home, and an intriguing collaboration between yacht brokerage giants Fraser Yachts and Michaël Zingraf Real Estate Christie’s.

If that’s not enough, there’s also a teaser profile of Infiniti’s brand new concept car, and a feature on the Alpina B5 Bi-Turbo Touring, which is being billed as the world’s fastest production estate.

That’s all for now. Until next time, enjoy our newsletter and have a wonderful week.
