I spend a lot of time looking through real estate listings, so I get excited when I discover something unique or unusual. This London loft, which spans four Victorian artists’ studios from 1891, fits the bill. It’s on the market for £7.5 million (which is a lot more USD!).
The listing refers to this Moroccan-style tented room (above) as “the entertaining area.” I have a feeling there have been some pretty amazing parties here.
The lofts were originally used by artists such as Augustus John, Sir William Rothenstein, and Winifred Nicholson.
According to the listing:
Over the last 30 years, the current owners have nurtured an incredible award-winning roof garden which spans approximately 120 feet, with four ornamental minarets. These are replicas of the originals from Brighton Pavilion, that were cast by the museum, following their arson attempt in 1968. When the restored originals were replaced in 1983, these replicas were bought from the museum by the current owners.
