Christian Candy (Monaco-based) and Nick Candy (London-based) are British businessmen specialising in the luxury housing market. They were educated in Epsom College (Surrey). In 1995, the brothers bought their first property, a one-bedroom flat in Redcliffe Square, Earls Court, London. Using a £6,000 loan from their grandmother, the brothers renovated the £122,000 apartment while living in it. Eighteen months later they sold it for £172,000. The brothers are half Greek and half English.
In their spare time, between 1995 and 1999, the brothers began doing up flats, working their way up the property ladder. Eventually the brothers were able to give up their day jobs and establish Candy & Candy in 1999.
Nick Candy is CEO of Candy & Candy. His brother owns the Guernsey-based investment company CPC Group. In January 2011, the prestigious high end residential project, One Hyde Park: The Residences at Mandarin Oriental, was launched. CPC Group is part of the joint venture partnership for the development - Project Grande (Guernsey) Limited - with Waterknights, owned by the Emir of Qatar, Sheik Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani. The brothers were appointed as development managers and interior designers for the development of 86 apartments and 3 retail boutiques (Rolex, McLaren Automotive and Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank) on the edge of Hyde Park and Knightsbridge.
