About the estate

Isleden House is made up of general needs housing and sheltered accommodation. The estate was built in 1948 by the Trustees of the London Parochial Charities. In 1953 the Trustees conveyed the property to the City of London.

The estate is centred around a quiet, private courtyard and gardens. It comprises 76 flats, 33 of which are sheltered accommodation for people at the current state retirement age.

Sheltered residents can use the communal lounge to relax and refreshment-making facilities are available.
