The space
The double height reception room of this property was built in 1880 at the top of the building as the studio of the Victorian portrait photographer Walter Kevis.
It is an unusual room, with great character and feeling of space.

The 3 bedrooms on the first floor offer flexible accommodation for up to 6 people and although small are equipped with luxury in mind. We also have a sofa bed in the main studio space for an additional two guests. Each bedroom has it's own hairdryer, two ultra soft cotton towels per guest (one large bath sheet and one hand towel each), Egyptian cotton sheets and duvet covers, two hypo allergenic pillows per guest, with Oxford bordered Egyptian cotton pillowcases, hangars, Sweet Orange and Geranium hand wash, shampoo and hand lotion all supplied by local brand Artful Teasing from Lombard St, Petworth. Each guest can also relax in the luxury cotton bathrobes supplied for use whilst staying here. An iron and ironing board is ready for action for those with wedding outfits to perfect!

The studio is equipped with board games galore and a retro music system (cassettes and vinyl welcome) books, maps, magazines, guitar and a projector with film screen. All for your use!

The kitchen is ready for you to make your own breakfast/brunch/supper with equipment for 8 guests, with teas, coffee and milk provided and a range of sizes of cafeterias to make decent coffee. Or just step outside and hop into many of the great coffee shops in the town.

Guest access
Access to the property is through its own ground floor front door off a small private garden courtyard which leads from a larger courtyard off Park Road - this is "Hidden Petworth"! The apartment is on the first and second floors of a three storey building. The ground floor of the building is an art gallery with a separate entrance on another street, and which is not occupied at night.

Other things to note
The entire apartment has been specifically refurbished recently to a very high standard to accommodate our guests, and it is only used for lettings. We are well prepared to welcome you The apartment is self contained with it's own key safe self check in. In addition we leave 24 hours between bookings, and we conduct a deep clean between stays by our specialist cleaner. Our Egyptian cotton hypo allergenic laundry is all professionally laundered. We live 2 miles away so can guide and help you suggesting places to buy food or to help you arrange for food deliveries to be made direct to you. Petworth is a small and peaceful town if you need to stay for a while. At present the spectacular Petworth Park is open for those staying to walk in once a day for up to an hour. We can keep you posted as local guidance changes and keep you well informed of current regulations. Above all you are our guests, albeit more remotely than normal, and you will be most welcome at the Penthouse.

We have own and run Kevis House in the centre of Petworth. The two upper floors of the building are dedicated to the self- contained Penthouse with it's own independent access, and in the ground floor we run Kevis House Gallery with separate access on Lombard St. We love the town we work in and all the people here, we live on a hill just 2 miles away. We are very keen walkers, gardeners, enjoy cooking, reading, singing and listening to music, art (of course!) and even historic cars with an Austin 7 that occasionally can be spotted in town. Most favourite of all - Lucca our fox red labrador! Come and stay...
