Located in a prosperous district of the parish of Isleworth in the west of London, Osterley15.3 km west south-west of Charing Cross and is part of the London Borough of Hounslow. It is used partly as agricultural and used as a mixed aesthetic parkland at Osterley House (National Trust), a charity-run agency that is involved to paying visitors.
Most of Osterley is covered by the large ancestral private estate and mansion of Osterley Park that were owned formerly by the Jersey family.

During the ‘30s, the Great West Road was finished and more people came to live here to form the growing residential sections within Osterley.
Do you know that among Osterley and Park Houses, one of the London residences of The Sultan of Brunei is the Aviary Farm in Windmill Lane. I am also curious to know if the one of the residences of the sultan has loft conversion.
