About this property

  • Savills are delighted to present this magnificent apartment set in the ‘The Recording Studio' development on Highbury New Park. The building is steeped in history. It was originally built in 1881 as the church hall to St Augustine's Church. In the 1960s the building became the home of the renowned Wessex Sound Studios.

    In 1965 George Martin, the legendary producer of The Beatles, bought the studios and made of it one of the hottest rock hubs in the music industry. The list of musicians who recorded here is incredible – they include The Rolling Stones, The Clash, Queen, The Sex Pistols and many more world famous acts. In 2006 the building was converted to its current form as a residential gated development known as ‘The Recording Studio' with eight apartments and one townhouse.

    The apartment we offer is set on the ground floor within the main building. The apartment offers nearly 800sqft of living space with the open plan kitchen/reception room generously proportioned with plenty of space for a large dining table and ample soft seating and lots of room between. The main bedroom is a fantastic size with a large en suite. The second bedroom is also a great size with a custom-made built-in wardrobe, and there is a modern family bathroom and a wraparound walled garden
