Full description

This delightful Grade II listed period property forms part of the Osborne Cottage private development which we understand was originally the home of Queen Victoria's daughter Princess Beatrice.

Osborne Cottage has now been subdivided into a number of private residences, some old and some new and this particular property stands in its own good sized private garden with private parking arrangements.

As can be seen from the photograph, the property has attractive brick elevations under a clay tile roof and original windows, all of which have been recently refurbished. The surprisingly spacious accommodation has many original character features and is warmed by gas fired central heating. The internal accommodation has recently been redecorated virtually throughout and the property is now ready for immediate occupation.

In our opinion this property would make an ideal permanent home or could be used as a second home or as holiday accommodation. We would thoroughly recommend an internal viewing to fully appreciate its fine features. This property also offers a real opportunity for a purchaser to acquire a rare piece of the Island's heritage links with Queen Victoria as Osborne Cottage and its grounds immediately adjoin the Osborne House Estate. It comprises: -


KITCHEN 13'9" x 7'2" (4.2m x 2.2m) fitted in range of white laminate units with dark stone effect laminate worktops with one and a quarter bowl sink . A wall mounted gas fired combination boiler supplying central heating and hot water.


BATHROOM with white suite of panelled bath with electric shower over, close coupled WC and wash basin

SEPARATE WC with white close coupled suite and wash basin

DINING ROOM 13'11" x 14'9" plus bay window (4.25m x 4.5m)

SITTING ROOM 21'7" max x 16'4" (6.58m x 5m) with study area off 5'6" x 4'7" (1.7m x 1.4m)



BEDROOM ONE 17' X 10' (5.2m x 3m)

BEDROOM THREE 10'5" x 8'10" (3.2m x 2.7m) plus recess

BEDROOM TWO 10'2" x 9'6" (3.1m x 2.9m)


The Cottage enjoys a good sized garden at the front, side and rear of the property, which is laid mostly to grass and bounded by mature hedging with some mature trees and with a double five bar gate leading to a gravelled car park and turning area.

SERVICES All mains are connected.

TENURE We understand that the house is held on a residue of a 999 year lease from the 1 August 2000 at a ground rent of 1 per annum. We understand the lease was only really created as a means of separating he property from Osborne Cottage originally and to deal with the communal areas such as the driveway and other rights of way.

COUNCIL TAX Band D Can be confirmed by the Isle of Wight Council (01983 823901).
