Primrose London, NW1


An interesting and contemporary architect designed home, compiled of two Victorian former artist studios, built in 1870. Grade II listed and in the Arts and Crafts style with exaggerated gables, roof pitch and chimney stacks.

The building appears ‘cottage-like’ but upon entering you find yourself in a large light filled double height volume. The principal studio has a floor area of approximately 9m x 6m with a large area of glass to its north elevation and roof. This is a versatile space that can be used as a daylight studio or for interior shots. The flooring in this room is limed oak, and there is a large open working fireplace. A black steel staircase give access to the mezzanine level above.

The kitchen runs along one wall of the living space, and has four large Arabescato marble slabs as a splashback, with a seamless stainless steel countertop which is 6 metres in length.

Large double crittal doors provide access to a walled and decked garden area.

The master bedroom suite is located on the ground floor adjacent to the main living space, with a dedicated staircase made of steel and painted white leading up to the dressing area and en-suite bathroom on the mezzanine above. The bedroom has a working open fireplace.

In total there are three double bedrooms and two bathrooms. There is a garden bedroom, with a ‘green roof’ that leads via a glass pivot door into the walled garden area. The third bedroom is a closed mezzanine clad entirely of birch plywood. This ‘box’ has five shutters so that it can be opened up to the studio space below. This bedroom has the original pine floor from the 1870’s!

Vehicles can reach the property down a shared private access road. This access road leads into a communal parking area and two small communal courtyard garden areas. This location property in Primrose Hill is a five minutes walk from Regent’s Park.
