The Artists House, Deal (5 miles from course)
Welcome to The Artist’s House. This truly gorgeous one bedroom house has been conceived by the artist/designer Steve Thomas, who created Big Biba and was Sir Paul McCartney’s personal designer.
Hidden away In Deal’s pretty conservation area, The Artist’s House is in George Street, a very quiet mews, close to the sea, the High Street, the best restaurant in Deal, Victuals and Co, and the two of the oldest pubs, the Ship and the Hoy.
You enter through the stable door and are immediately struck by an incredible array of artwork & sculpture, with bright light flooding through the huge skylight from on high. It is really spacious and although it has one bedroom there is plenty of room for a blow up bed (which we would provide plus the bedding) which would be perfect for children!
It’s a proper romantic artist’s house - with a gallery - under which is the well-equipped kitchen & dining area, whilst in the seating studio space there is furniture designed by Hans Wegner, Charles Eames, Ron Arad & Thomas, with a veritable library of fascinating books, mostly on design, architecture & the arts.
Up the stairs, through the gallery, is the large double bedroom, with accent colours of mahogany, rust & black, with framed iconic black & white photographic prints, and an en-suite shower and bathroom, with Moulton Brown products.
This is the ideal venue for that romantic getaway, perfect for couples – particularly if interested in the arts, as it really is a snug feast for the eyes!
Your own front door, a stable door, into The Artist’s Studio.
