Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This is a fabulous opportunity to acquire a truly bespoke piece of architecture.
The Gordon House was commissioned in 1986 to MJ Long a famous architect known for her work on Falmouth Maritime Museum and The British Library. It was built as an artists studio for the artist Mr Gordon House who lived in the adjacent house. Over its life it provided a valuable painting space for the artist with every angle carefully designed to give maximum light and manoeuvrability as a workspace. In later years the studio was modified slightly by MJ Long for the House family to use it as a residential space. Today the house stands proud in its own right as one of the unique properties in Highbury. All the elements that made this a wonderful studio now make a unique home. Enclosed by a high stone wall to the front there is a glorious south facing courtyard garden with off street parking and electric gate entry. The internal space offers a large open plan studio area with kitchen to one side. Vaulted ceilings and a steel spiral staircase lead to the first floor balcony which is flooded in natural light from a continuous skylight directly above. There is a separate bedroom on the ground floor with high vaulted ceiling. A bathroom and entrance hall are also found on the ground floor. There is also a rear courtyard garden with storage area. The combination of metal, wood and stone throughout are a real feast for the eyes.
