Van Gogh's old London art school on the market for £3-million

Currently on the market with Estate Agent Harris Le Beau for £3-million is Studio One, where it is believed Vincent Van Gogh attended his art classes. The agency says, 'The charming property has been lovingly redesigned by the current owners Tobias Hester and Alexander Werner, combining their outstanding interior design skills and eye for detail.'

Studio One, a converted art school, showcases a blend of historical charm and modern luxury. Purchased in 2017 by Tobias Hestler and Alexander Wegner, the property in St Oswald's Place, formerly The Lambeth School of Art, underwent a meticulous renovation that preserved its Victorian character while introducing contemporary comforts.

The building was converted by renowned architect Tony Fretton in the 1980's and offers wonderful, rarely available volume. The property is approached via a secluded cobbled courtyard, which is set back from St Oswald's Place, tucked behind a secure gated arch. The living room is a beautifully curated space with a soaring double-height ceiling, towering original windows and a delightful working fireplace. This remarkable room measures 36ft x 17ft with 14ft ceilings and would be perfect for those seeking a wow-factor entertaining space or somewhere to display artwork. It offers dramatic volume whilst also feeling cosy.

The bespoke, hand-made kitchen was crafted from solid-wood by a local carpenter to the highest of standards. Featuring Miele appliances, Vola taps and underfloor heating with views over the cobbled courtyard, the kitchen is semi-open-plan with a breakfast bar situated at the boundary to the main living area, making it perfect for entertaining. There is also a pantry, larder and a 'Winecave' for storage of up to 70 bottles.

Overlooking a beautiful courtyard garden, the extremely spacious principal bedroom suite measures 17ft x 16ft with 14ft ceilings. The suite is accessed via a large walkthrough dressing room with beautiful, fitted joinery and cleverly located pocket doors that provide privacy when required, from the otherwise flowing open space. The large ensuite bathroom features an AGAPE bathtub, Bert & May tiles, a Geberit shower WC and underfloor heating. Upstairs you will find two further bedrooms with bespoke built-in-wardrobes and a Jack-and-Jill bathroom.

Studio One is set behind secure gates, in a quaint, cobbled courtyard. It occupies two floors of one wing of an old school building and has its own front door and secure parking space. Upon entering the peaceful courtyard, you'd be forgiven for thinking you had arrived at a 19th century country home, then you remember you're in the middle of London, just a short walk from The River Thames and the Houses of Parliament. The property benefits from its own private courtyard garden and also has direct access into a charming communal garden.
