My name is Annabella, I am an experienced photographic studio/location owner, as well as a designer, furniture up cycler, blogger, trainee MUA and writer.
You may have worked with me at one of my previous studios Towerbridge Penthouse, Shoreditch Townhouse or Longacre Studio over the last 5 years.
The Clocktower studio is my latest baby! Not only is this my beautiful home but my creative space, but a design workshop, up cycling haven, a photographic studio, filming location and event venue for my projects. always looking to host and get involved in other people visions too!
This unique location boasts unparalleled panoramic views of London’s skyline. The Clock Towers gothic style English bell tower was constructed as part of a church in 1861 and was converted into the domestic property in the 1990s following an arson attack.
The property comprises of a large modern kitchen, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 2 reception rooms, a models dressing/MUA area, a large impressive entrance hall with baby grand piano a garden and roof terrace as well as a fully functioning lift.
Perhaps the most impressive room in this house is the old belfry with 40 foot high windows. Talk about natural light!
The Clock Tower is based in the heart of south east London and can be reached within 20-25 minutes from London Bridge, Victoria and Clapham Junction.
I am incredibly excited about this new venture, so to be kept updated about our developments stop by regularly and join our twitter, instagram and Facebook
I hope to be working with you soon!
