A loft-style haven with a contemporary twist, Avenue Studios boasts an impressive sense of history. Allegedly once serving as King Henry VIII’s stables, the space was a creative sanctuary in the mid-19th century for Queen Victoria’s sculptor, before later transforming into workspaces for numerous notable artists.
Now, this immaculately reimagined artist’s studio plays host to inspiring design-led interiors. Smooth tiles pave the way through to the social heart of the home – an immense double-height room with a lofty vaulted ceiling. A mezzanine level encircles the space, allowing light to cascade across a central lounge. A space to press pause, an array of armchairs makes for a peaceful spot to admire the feature fireplace. Envisaged for effortless entertaining, an L-shaped open-plan kitchen melds seamlessly into the space. Cook up a storm then enjoy informal dinners across the bench-style dining table. Leisurely breakfasts are best from the cosy window-nook opposite.
Upstairs, the principal bedroom benefits from an airy mezzanine level of its own. Calming lilac carpet sweeps through the C-shape space, considerately divided into areas for sleeping and lounging. Illuminated by an abundance of natural light, two floor-to-ceiling windows cast light across a versatile space for curling up with a book or catching up on work. Refresh in the generous family bathroom, complete with smooth stone finishes and a large bathtub.
On the ground floor, a calming tone carries through an enchanting guest bedroom. Soft natural light filters through artfully placed skylights above, completing the peaceful ambiance. Serving this bedroom is a contemporary shower room in a beige plaster finish.
