Queensbury Mews is nicely tucked away from the hubbub of Western Road and the seafront, while remaining sociably close to both. It was once the service road for the eastern side of Regency Square, but the coach houses and fisherman’s cottages have since been converted into beautiful seaside homes, which now sit on some of the most sought-after land in the country.
Shared with North Cottage, there is a large parking bay to the north of the mews, alongside the houses which has two parking spaces for each home.
Middle Cottage, is far more spacious than either of its neighbours, having had some Mid-Century alterations which are evident in the open room proportions and ample built-in storage which can be found throughout this substantial property.
You enter first into the private and surprisingly spacious courtyard garden where there is plenty of space for dining alfresco during summer. It is an attractive space with slate floor tiles and tall white walls which can be brightened further with climbing florals and garden furniture.
Stepping inside, there is an entrance hall with space for hanging coats and organising shoes, and a separate cloakroom WC – an essential in any shared space. From here, a second door opens to the living room where the scale of the property becomes apparent. This is a generous room with pale grey, wood-effect laminate flooring and dove-grey walls to complement, plus ample space for both formal dining and relaxation of a sizable corner sofa. The current owners also have a bar in here making it the ideal entertaining space. Bedroom six sits off this room, and while it is a smaller double, it would also work well as a tranquil home office.
Moving further through the property, the kitchen is up a step or two and is another bright and contemporary room with streamlined, handle free cabinetry, glossy worktops and an integrated oven and hob. Space has been left for a washing machine and a tall fridge freezer, and a breakfast bar provides extra workspace and storage. The hot-pink vinyl floor adds a pop of colour while the entire room offers a second space for entertaining.
A flight of stairs leads down to the lower floor where there are two double bedrooms and a bathroom. The largest room shares the same cool colour palette and modern finish as the living room and has plenty of built-in storage as well as a seating area and two beds, without compromising on floor space. The second bedroom is currently being used as a home gym, but it is a good size double with built-in wardrobes and dark wood laminate flooring. Between the two rooms, the shower room has classic monochrome tiling and a spacious cubicle, plus a vanity unit for your toiletries to keep the space clutter free.
Returning upstairs to the first floor, the double height stairwell has a mirror tile wall which adds to the feeling of space. From the galleried landing there is yet more storage built in for linens and towels, and there are three further double bedrooms – this time with carpet underfoot and all with double glazing so you can ensure a truly restful night’s sleep – even this close to the city centre. To the front, bedroom two has access to the balcony which runs full width across the house. This looks out to the urban landscape and is a lovely place to sit out in the morning sunshine during summer.
These rooms share use of another modern shower room with a roomy cubicle, a rainfall shower head and a tall heated rail for your towels.
