The property has an interesting history, and we understand it was originally constructed as a single residential dwelling In Victorian times. The property was used in part as a preparatory school. For a period, Vincent Van Gogh taught and resided here, commemorated by the English Heritage blue plaque erected to the front of the building. In around 2004, the building was sympathetically refurbished by developers Crest Nicholson, who simultaneously developed the landscaped quality residential property development to the rear of the building. Externally, the building comprises a well proportioned Georgian House, constructed of brick elevations sash windows, incorporating a dentilled eaves cornice underneath a hipped slate roof. Internally, several period features are retained to include a decorative period staircase wood panelling in most office rooms and fireplaces. However, these appear to be later than the original building. In addition, there is carpeting, central heating and perimeter trunking with some secondary glazing. There is a single accessible WC facility on the ground floor, separate male and female toilets, plus a kitchen on the second floor.
Van Gogh House is prominently located fronting the Twickenham Road (A310) within a short walk of Old Isleworth and the River Thames. The A316A, which becomes the M3 is approximately one mile from the subject property, and the A4 is about 1.25 from north of the property, providing access to junction 2 of the M4 and Heathrow Airport. Isleworth railway station is the nearest, providing regular links to Waterloo. Isleworth is thus a convenient location to travel to and from Central London, Heathrow and M25 destinations.
