WhatHouse? takes a tour of the beautiful five-bedroom show home designed by Alexander James Interiors at Fitzroy Gate in Old Isleworth...

Fitzroy Gate by St James has recently launched a five-bedroom show home, which has been designed by Alexander James Interiors, one of the World’s Top 100 Interior Designers.

Fitzroy Gate is a luxury gated development, which comprises 39 Victorian and Neo-Georgian-style four-, five- and six-bedroom homes. Set within the historic grounds of a beautifully-restored riverside estate in historic Old Isleworth, Fitzroy Gate is also conveniently located just moments from St Margaret’s train station, which allows swift access into central London in just 31 minutes.

Set over seven-acres, half of the scheme is dedicated to open space, with three-acres of landscaped private parkland to the rear of the estate. In addition to this ample green space, each home at Fitzroy Gate has two allocated parking spaces and comes complete with its own private garden – many of which benefit from first floor terraces with wonderful views of the parkland and River Thames.

Fitzroy Gate (St James)Drawing Room – The design for the drawing room required a bright modern look with a luxurious feel. The inspiration was been taken from the Mediterranean, with the colours very much inspired by the bright azures, turquoises and sandy gold beaches.

Fitzroy Gate (St James)Kitchen / Family Room: As the kitchen is always the heart of the house, it is important for this room to feel relaxed but to retain modern elements. Layered textures give a sense of comfort and contrast, whilst the cool colours of blacks and greys are paired with bright splashes of turquoise.

Fitzroy Gate (St James)Dining Room: The main inspiration for the dining room was taken from the modern oversized pieces of art on the main wall. The central pendant is a modern inspired 1970’s piece that adds a sculptural element to the room. The colour teal has been used in the curtains and in the styling on the dining table to contrast with the golds and neutral tones.

Fitzroy Gate (St James)Master Bedroom: The master bedroom needs to feel calm but also aspirational, giving the impression of when you walk in to a beautiful hotel suite. Sumptuous textures were used like the velvet upholstered bed, shagreen leather bedsides with brass detail, pearlescent wallpaper and silk/wool cushions.

Fitzroy Gate (St James)Fifth Bedroom: This bedroom is at the top of the property with two dormer windows allowing the room to feel sunny and light. The bright blue painted feature wall penetrates the room and contrasts with the bright yellow accents. New York yellow taxis were the inspiration, using photographic images as prints on the walls and in accessories.

Fitzroy Gate (St James)Media Room: In the media room the aim was to give it a fun element that would appeal to both adults and children. Giving it a cinema feel, with a working popcorn machine, director’s chairs complete with a clapper board and megaphone. In addition, it includes large movie posters from Skyfall and other casino themed accessories. The colour palette was influenced by the movie posters using black, white and red.
