STUDIOS ARE A HAVEN FOR ARTISTS.

If you want to know where hip hop star and Mercury-prize winning Dizzee Rascal bangs out his hits then look no further than this ordinarylooking back street in a suburb of south London.

Famed for hits such as Bonkers, Dizzee Rascal has based his recording studio and business on this road in Forest Hill for several years.

But despite its rough and ready looks, the street is much sought after as a haven for artists and artisans of all kinds, and has been given Conservation Area status.

It is home to 19 painters as well as Dizzee and prices on the road have been climbing steeply in recent years. One of the artist's homes next door to Dizzee has come up for sale, the studio of contemporary sculptor and Turner Prize nominated David Mach, who is most famous for his 1989 installation of tumbling red telephone boxes. His home and workshop is for sale at an astounding PS2.7 million - reflecting the demand for artist studios on this creative cul-de-sac.

The studio is described by agent The Modern House as a "raw and characterful" former warehouse with a studio/ workshop on the ground floor and an apartment on the second floor which is a large openplan living area plus two bedrooms, a bathroom overlooking an inner courtyard, a kitchendiner and roof terrace.
