A rare and utterly magnificent one-bedroom *FREEHOLD* Artist's Studio (with off street parking).

Avenue Studios is a location of fascinating historical interest, allegedly the site of Henry VIII stables, and from 1850 used by Baron Carlo Marochetti, Queen Victoria's favourite sculptor, as his studio and foundry, who with Sir Edwin Landseer, cast the lions at the base of Nelson's Column. Sir Alfred Gilbert, sculptor and goldsmith, sculpted Eros in his studio. He was a pupil of Joseph Boehm who worked in Avenue Studios where Queen Victoria and her daughter Princess Louise were visitors.

Circa 1870, the spaces were divided into smaller spaces and such illustrious artists/sculptors as Charles Lutyens, Joseph Boehm, C. E. Halle, Poynter, John Singer Sargent and Whistler lived/worked there and even the Suffragettes operated a secret press from the cellar of number 5.

The name of the enclave, Sydney Place, derives from Viscount Sydney, a trustee of Henry Smith's Charity.
