Cheaper than Richmond but more expensive than neighbouring Brentford and Feltham, Isleworth’s popularity (and property values) are on the increase, thanks to its proximity to the Thames and attractive Victorian houses. In fact throughout the 18th century Isleworth was highly fashionable and it wasn’t uncommon for aristocrats to stay in plush residences here. London’s expansion meant the area’s character altered dramatically, but luxury developments and gated communities are starting to re-appear. The major downside to the area is its location beneath Heathrow’s flightpath, but if you don’t mind the sound of aeroplanes every two minutes you’ll find an area filled with luscious greenery and pretty riverside estates.
