Five of the Best: Artists’ studios

‘The Steeple Times’ chooses five artists’ studios for sale that will appeal to creatives with significant means

 

Though Leonardo da Vinci once said: “An artist’s studio should be a small space because small rooms discipline the mind and large ones distract it”, these spaces are generally voluminous and filled with light. Traditionally, they were built as affordable spaces but now many are ultra-prime homes. Here we feature five of the best:

 

Glebe Place, Chelsea, London, SW3 – £5.45 million ($8.4 million, €7.4 million)

Artists including Augustus John and William Sickert are amongst the best known names to have inhabited studios in Glebe Place but now amongst its residents, you are more likely to find hedgies and playboys.
