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.

Used by the photographer Terence Donovan (1936 – 1996) as his studio from 1978 until his death, what agents Wetherell describe as “the widest house for sale in Mayfair” (it is 53 foot wide) is now a 5,788 square foot freehold house with a swimming pool, steam room, panic room and gym.

The agent specifically states “the terms of the lease [which expires in 2108] dictate the property is to be occupied as a residential studio by a professional artist”. Each has a 23’ by 16’ studio room, a kitchenette and a bathroom.
