The Garage Studio
This combination of rooms is ideal for all Visual Artists & Designer/Makers, providing a studio space with a North facing window, blank wall and sink, and a small separate bedroom.
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, easels and 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.
The Cosy Bedroom
This small bedroom (445 x 243cm) is situated on the first floor at the front of the house (road side, so you will be able to hear traffic). It has shutters on the window, which not only block out light and sound, but also help control the high temperatures in the mid-summer months.
We will be renovating this room this winter and will add images once its ready. It very much puts us in mind of Van Gogh’s ‘Bedroom in Arles ‘ in it’s dimensions, so this image will have to do for now!
This quirky little room has, what appears to be, integrated shelf brackets in the plaster work at both ends of the room, on the left and the right. One can only imagine that this room was once fully shelved and used for storage. Was it a larder perhaps for all the jars of jam and chutney made from our many fruit trees?
