Studio House, 17 St Dunstan's Road, Hammersmith, London

Pevsner's London 3: North West (with Bridget Cherry, 1991) says in Perambulation 4: North:

A final excursion S to ST DUNSTAN'S ROAD, to another studio, No 17 (altered in 1958 for the Hungarian Reformed Church), built 1891 on a rural spot on the edge of Hammersmith Cemetery by CFA Voysey for the decorative painter WEF Britten. It is an appealingly humble cottage with studio behind, deceptively simple, but designed with Voysey's characteristic attention to detail. Roughcast walls, battered chimney, delectably inventive iron railings. Broad central door with canopy suspended from iron brackets. To its L, the timber window of the former kitchen, and another window, formerly a large studio door. To the R the more formal stone-mullioned window of the well-lit small entrance hall. The staircase formerly rose within the hall. The studio had a gallery above a deep fireplace recess, now portioned off. The exterior was originally quite colourful; the woodwork painted green, with green-glazed brick sills to the large segmental-arched studio windows.
