Apartment | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 16
In a New York Style
The accommodation at Vine Street Studios is designed with three things in mind: the creation of a space that is as versatile as it is comfortable; the use of finishes, furnishings and fittings that surprise, inspire and delight; the notion that a weekend accommodation can – and should – look and feel just like a beautifully designed home. It includes a huge living space, 4 sleeping rooms, a self-contained annex and secure off street parking.
Cutting Edge Space
Accessed by its own private front door, and situated on the first floor, the living space at Vine Street Studios consists of an enormous lounge, a kitchen, shower and cloakroom. Open plan and characterised by exposed steel beams, oak floors, large Crittall style windows and by walls either clad in oak panels or finished in raw white plaster, the 1000 sq ft space includes a floating staircase, designer furniture, bespoke storage, a huge flat screen television and a selection of limited edition photographic prints and art work. Beautifully lit, relaxed and very cool, it's an extraordinary space, its penchant for cutting edge design epitomised by the attached shower and wash room, a state-of-the-art fibreglass shell, and by its kitchen area, the unit's oxidised metal sheeting superbly judged.
Equally fine, situated on the top floor, off a naturally lit corridor, and accessed by way of the above mentioned floating staircase, the bedrooms run the length of the building. There are 3 standard sized rooms and one master bedroom. Each room contains a double bed, storage and fittings. One of the standard rooms and the master bedroom includes an open plan steel bath. Very 'Good Design' in approach, the rooms' simple and restrained beauty is perfectly complimented by raw white plaster walls, the overall feel wonderfully Italian.
Bits and Pieces
Please note that Vine Street Studios' annex may be accessed by means of a private set of stairs, and comes with its own kitchen and en suite shower room. The property can comfortably accommodate groups of 10. In the event of a larger group booking, roll-out beds and sofa beds will allow for up to 16 guests. Finally, please be advised that the ground floor work space is available to hire in conjunction with the loft apartment.

One of these sofas is a sofa bed providing space for an additional 2 people to sleep, or can be kept as sofas for a nice communal area for guests to relax in. There is also a large flat screen television for entertainment.
The kitchen is at the far end and is fully equipped with everything you will need. Including a double oven, microwave, large fridge freezer, washing machine and dishwasher. There is also a large dining table.

There is also an additional 2 single guest beds. This bedroom also benefits from a bath in the corner. Bedroom 4 can be accessed through bedroom 3 by a door.

Wet Room 3

Whilst the property can accommodate 18 guests it does feel a bit like a dormitory! The ideal group size is 10 with 2 guests per bedroom/studio, 14 works well with 3 in each of the bedrooms and 2 in the studio, 16 is ok if you squeeze an extra guest in the master bedroom and studio. 18 means you have 2 guests on a sofa bed in the main living room.
