New gated development of luxury homes launches in Old Isleworth this weekend
Posted 28 October 2015 by Keith Osborne
This Sunday (1 November, between 10.00am and 5.00pm) sees the launch of a brand new gated development on the border of Richmond and Old Isleworth, in south-west London.
The new collection of apartments and family homes at Fitzroy Gate is being constructed by St James and Beechcroft Developments on a derelict site behind a historic listed wall between Old Isleworth and Richmond Lock.
Set amid a collection of historic buildings in acres of mature parkland, and entered through a pair of ornate, refurbished gates, there will be a mix of new build and conversion properties which will all benefit from extensive landscaped gardens adjacent to the River Thames.
St James will be building a collection of 39 new four-, five- and six-bedroom houses at the scheme, while the listed buildings on the site are being converted into a selection of elegant houses and luxurious apartments by Beechcroft Developments.
The homes from St James have been inspired by a variety of architectural styles and are set out in an array of floor plans to maximise their appeal to a wide spectrum of buyers. Prices will start at £1.25m for these spacious, brand new properties. Across the range, buyers can expect to find a high interior specification and in the larger houses, set within The Crescent, there are separate studies, top floor master suites and first floor terraces overlooking the landscaped gardens to the banks of the Thames.
Full-width bi-fold doors to a rear patio and garden are standard across the range,and each home comes with two off-street car parking spaces.
The White House, at the heart of Fitzroy Gate, is part of the original estate and is being converted by Beechcroft Developments into six apartments, each with river and parkland views. Four more two-and three-bedroom houses will be created from the conversion of the red brick chapel, built by the Catholic firm, Pugin & Pugin in 1902, a period when the estate was used as a convent and school, and some of the homes will retain stained glass features.
Work on The Mews will provide two- and three-bedroom courtyard houses which will be complemented by a new build collection of nine luxurious, two-bedroom apartments at Isabella House.
Prices on the Beechroft Collection will start at £600,000.
Fitzroy Gate benefits from good transport links, with St Margarets and Syon Lane stations in close proximity, both offering regular trains into London Waterloo taking little more than half-an-hour. There are Tube services into central London and to Heathrow from Osterley station, on the Piccadilly Line. There is also easy road access from the development to the A316 and A4, the M3, M4 and M23.
Family buyers will appreciate the number and quality of private and independent schools in the Borough of Richmond and Hounslow
