Buy of the Week Music fans will find a sound investment at The Recording Studios in Highbury, N5. Second only to Abbey Road as the longest-established recording studio, it played host to an impressive list of artists, from the Rolling Stones, Sex Pistols and Queen, to Madonna, Tina Turner and Dido. Nine unique homes have been created, including on- and two-bedroom apartments, two penthouses and a town house.
Floors are solid oak, walls feature exposed brickwork, the ceilings are barrel-vaulted and light fills the livings areas through double-aspect, arched windows.
Fully integrated appliances, granite worktops and drop-down plasma screens bring style to the kitchens, while the bathrooms have underfloor heating and the penthouses are fitted with en-suite wetrooms and Jacuzzis. Video-entry systems, landscaped communal grounds and gate private parking are part of the deal.
