A converted 19th-century artist studio with a dramatic sense of height.
Once upon a time, England's Lane and its surrounding neighbourhood was a favoured haunt for artists – lending it the name ‘Little Florence’. Now it’s a striking light-filled house thanks to the architects at Chassay + Last.
As you enter, floor-to-ceiling glazing lets light wash over the double-height reception room, which has an outside-in feel thanks to its lofty dual-aspect windows and array of plants. It’s an easy-going environment with an eclectic edge. A 19th-century photography chest in one corner, a laid-back Parisian daybed in the other and a desk beneath the warehouse-style arched windows. The glass-roofed kitchen is fitted with Bulthaup appliances and overlooks the south-west-facing patio garden. The outdoor dining table and jacuzzi invite socialising backdropped by leafy foliage.
in the mezzanine, a haven of whitewashed interiors awaits in the master bedroom,
setting the scene for playful furnishings. Next door, a second bedroom has
versatility: spend peaceful nights on the plush sofa bed or keep it as a
dressing room, making use of the extensive storage it has on offer. An
adjoining shower room has an industrial touch.
A mezzanine level amplifies the sense of scale in the reception room.
An array of artwork and photographs are hung throughout the home.
A floor-to-ceiling arched window is a standout feature.
A private garden features a round dining table and jacuzzi, perfect for entertaining throughout the year.
Taking its name from the French ‘bel assis’, Belsize Park is true to its nature as a ‘beautifully situated’ location.
