About this listing
Our self catering studio apartment is nestled on the hill above our home and pottery studio, located in the Penland School of Crafts community. Close to the road and adjacent to our painting studio, a separate driveway and entrance provide a private setting. Most comfortable for two people, the studio consists of an open plan kitchenette, sitting area, queen size bed and private bathroom. The additional sleeping loft is accessed by open stairs and can accommodate a third (agile) person.
This 300 sq.ft studio apartment is simple, sweet and sunny. It has been creatively built using an eclectic mix of locally salvaged materials, collected treasures from local Habitat stores and Italian antique markets.
Our property is home to Shawn Ireland Pottery, a working studio and showroom, which is always open to the public and guests for shopping.
The painting studio is open for viewing with prior arrangement.
All pottery and paintings in the apartment are Shawn's work and are for sale.
