We may have just found the best seat in the house when it comes to motorsports – and it’s quite literally, in the house – at Silverstone!
Lifestyle-led property developer, Escapade Living, is working in collaboration with Silverstone – the home of British motor racing – to offer trackside accommodation that is luxurious beyond belief.
Escapade Living is all about creating out-of-this-world destinations that are entirely based around their surroundings, and you won’t find a project that underpins that concept more than this one.
Escapade Silverstone seamlessly merges hospitality and motorsport in a way that has never been done before. The result is a statement of design sitting in a thrilling spot metres from the world’s best racing circuit.
This magnificent motorsport-inspired project offers a unique opportunity to own a piece of Silverstone, while enjoying access to one of the world’s most celebrated racetracks, as the live action unfolds right in front of your living space.
With operation set to start from May 2022, the development received planning consent at the end of 2019 and broke ground in October 2020.
The development will comprise 60 luxury residences and a clubhouse, giving guests the chance to live out their racing ambitions and enjoy unparalleled sightlines of the famous circuit.
Designed for high performance living, the clubhouse and facilities include state-of-the-art simulator rooms, briefing rooms, a driver-focused gym, oxygen swimming pool and sauna, restaurant, bar and private dining room.
The residences themselves have cantilevered terraces, allowing spectators to get even closer to the racetrack. Light-filled and with high acoustic specifications, they have underfloor heating, comfort cooling and ensuite bathrooms.
When an owner is not staying in their residence, it will form part of the wider accommodation available to guests at Silverstone and offer a healthy net yield.
Escapade Silverstone enables owners to capitalise on the 1.2 million visitors that the circuit welcomes every year. It is a reimagining of leisure, lifestyle and investing: putting capital into something that provides entertainment, enrichment, enjoyment and learning, while also making a return.
Residences are fully managed, from all upkeep and maintenance to the organising of stays and revenue distribution. Owners will also be granted founding membership, giving free access for all major race events, use of the clubhouse, priority track access and exclusive invites to owner-only events, track days and trips.
Residences are provided on a 125-year lease and owners will be able to use them as they wish up to a certain number of nights per year. Usage nights are calculated to enable maximum utilisation of a property – for owners as guests and investors.
Escapade Silverstone will also provide climate-controlled car storage, allowing owners to securely store vehicles when not in use.
This facility, less than 500 meters from the edge of the Silverstone circuit, will offer full pre and post-use preparation and inspection – allowing guests to turn up and make the most of their time on the track.
“We’re delighted to be working with such a world-renowned venue as Silverstone for our first development,” says Will Tindall, Escapade Living’s CEO.
“We create destinations that are entirely of their surroundings, while also providing owners with the opportunity to make a return on unique world-class propertyies. The residences overlook arguably the most exciting complex of corners on all of the F1 calendar.
“In our opinion, real luxury doesn’t feel expensive; it feels comfortable and natural.
That’s what Escapade Silverstone provides. And more than that, it is completely integrated with the circuit – an authentic experience born out of the world’s foremost racetrack and, as a finished product, baked into it.
“As the world unlocks in the coming months, thousands will return to Silverstone to share the joy and spectacle of speed.
When they do, we hope Escapade will be the ultimate place to stay as a guest, or as an owner.”
