Property Details


The Old Blue School is an architecturally impressive Grade II listed former school. This split level two double bedroom, two bathroom apartment comes with the added benefit of a private roof terrace and allocated parking space.

The apartment has been meticulously and thoughtfully renovated and boasts luxury bathrooms and a beautifully equipped kitchen.

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.

Having been lovingly and thoughtfully renovated, this historic property has now been converted into six very special apartments, with the upper units benefitting from private roof terraces with Thermory thermo-treated ash decking. The apartments boast luxurious bathrooms with Duravit basins, Crosswater taps & shower valves, as well as quality kitchens 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 video entry-phone systems to all flats.
