Why it's back to school for London's luxury property developers

Why it's back to school for London's luxury property developers
... London is awash with Victorian schools whose voluminous proportions lend themselves perfectly to high-ceilinged, high-end, loft-style apartments. Take The Lycee building in Kennington - originally Kennington School, which counted Charlie Chaplin as a pupil, and now home to flats such as this one, owned by a well-known interior designer (he prefers to remain anonymous when it comes to his own home) and on the market for £1.3m through Dexters. The decadent and masculine black marble bathroom may bear little resemblance to what once graced this old institution, but the vendor’s design nod to the building’s school days include parquet flooring and a headmistress-style portrait painting that dominates the reception area.
