Isle of Wight ‘cottage’ once home to Queen Victoria’s daughter lists for £625k

The Grade II-listed Osborne Cottage has plenty of stories to tell – from its former royal owner to its original historic details.

Once home to Princess Beatrice, Queen Victoria’s daughter, the UK property is filled with grand features including a cantilevered staircase with elaborate metal scrollwork, and an unusual circular sky lantern – which fills the home’s lobby with natural light.

The four bedroom house – on the market with Biles & Co for £625k – inhabits two storeys of the cottage, which has been divided up since its construction in 1856. It encompasses several of the original property’s key rooms, including a library – complete with faux book-front cupboards – that opens onto a private garden. Other period details include original mouldings, stone fireplaces, and mosaic patterned floor tiles in the entrance hall.
