This West London property features river views, high ceilings and four floors of accommodation. The restriction? It is only available to artists and creatives.

Hammersmith House is part of an enclave created in St. Peter’s Wharf in the 1960s by artists Julian Trevelyan and Mary Fedden. The couple hired their friend and director of the Architectural Association School, architect Michael Pattrick, to design four-story apartment / workhouses, a single studio, and a small one-story apartment around a community garden.

Part of the main development, this three bedroom home is topped by a huge double-height artist’s studio with painted breeze block walls and pine floorboards. The light and volume in this room are exceptional. Raft ceilings have steel braces and a mezzanine level with huge sloping glass overlooking the Thames.

Other parts of the house have painted brick and glazed brick floors. The kitchen, living room, and bedrooms need a spruce tree, but the bones are good.

A trust established by Trevelyan in 1974 looks at potential new members on a case-by-case basis, although they must be working artists, architects or designers. And of course there’s the price: the Hammersmith home is listed for £ 1.5 million through Riverhomes.
