The ‘Garage’ Studio
& Bedroom with a View

 

 

This combination of rooms is ideal for the Visual Artist, providing a studio space with a North facing window, blank wall, concrete floor and sink, and a bedroom facing the garden for contemplation, research and sketching.

The ‘Garage’ Studio

The ‘Garage’ studio is perfect for creating *all types of works of art. It has a large North facing double door so good natural light during the day and no direct sunshine, so not dazzling or too hot mid summer. This door faces the road, so there is a little noise as cars go past, but it’s not a fast road and there’s barely any foot traffic.

Trestle tables and a a table top easel are provided and there is sink for cleaning out brushes and so forth. There is a blank white wall (240cm wide), suitable for taping up works on paper and the centre of the room has a concrete floor, suitable for laying out larger works. It’s about 3m wide and nearly 8m long.

Though this space is offered to you for your sole use as a studio, residents will pass through it from time-to-time to access other rooms in the property or to use the fridge and washing machine, also situated within the space. Laundry will be done at a time that suits you, to ensure you are not disturbed by it’s sound.

*As the ‘Garage’ studio is situated within the property, directly below resident’s bedrooms, materials or processes which may cause physical illness or initiate fires are not permitted for use at Studio Faire, this includes toxic pigments, spray paints and flammable or combustible products.

A Room with a View

This double bedroom also benefits from being at the back of the house (so no road noise!) and a view over the gardens through two large windows. There is gallons of light as it is a South facing garden.

There are shutters on both windows which not only block out light and sound, but also help control the high temperatures in the mid-summer months.

This room has a lovely marble fireplace, built in wardrobe and desk.

It has not been modernised yet, so it still holds the shadows of past lives in it’s subtle 1960s wallpaper.
