Take a look around this listed former college

Things have turned out just as the owners had hoped when they moved house over a year ago.

The family live in an enviable Grade II-listed college that was sensitively converted into apartments and houses in the 2000s. The four-bedroom property is set within the quiet oasis of an Italian-style courtyard, with elegant planting and a central fountain, and a terrace overlooking landscaped gardens.

The property the owners bought had not been decorated since the original conversion, so it was ready to be refreshed. Hiring the help of an interior designer that they admired was the obvious choice. ‘We like the way the company’s designs look contemporary but not ultra-modern,’ they say.
