Studio houses on the eastern side of Tite Street

The studio houses at Numbers 31 and 33 Tite Street shown here were designed by Robert Edis and erected in 1880. Number 31 was built for Frank Dicey and purchased in 1901 by William Singer Sargent. Since 1886 Sargent had lived in the ground floor flat of studio flats next door. The architects were embroiled in disputes with Metropolitan Board of Works over their designs. The end result was a compromise. The last house just at the edge of the photograph was built on the site of Whistler's White House.
