The Old Blue School is a unique collection of just six, two and three bedroom apartments, which were recently converted within this architecturally impressive Grade II listed former school.
This stunning ground floor apartment has been meticulously and thoughtfully renovated and boasts two luxury bathrooms, a beautifully equipped kitchen and allocated parking.
This stunning period building was originally constructed in 1841 to replace the Isleworth Parochial School (hence the IPS on the weathervane) and is one of the most prominent buildings in Old Isleworth, fronting Lower Square, within a few yards of the River Thames. The property still retains a wealth of original period features including expansive lancet windows, battlemented parapets and the quite remarkable restored clock-tower and weathervane.
The apartment boast luxurious bathrooms with Duravit basins, Crosswater taps & shower valves, as well as a quality kitchen with bespoke Dove Grey finished handle-less cupboards, Quartz worktops and Siemens/Bosch appliances. There is beautiful oak parquet flooring throughout with plumbed underfloor heating, whilst the tiled bathrooms have electric underfloor heating.
The grand communal entrance boasts Bateig Blue Limestone tiles and stairs to the first floor with a glass balustrade, whilst there are Banham security locks and a video entry-phone system. The property also has the benefit of an allocated parking space.
