Queensbury, a six bedroom property in Kent Road, is set over four floors and has five reception rooms and three bathrooms inside.

The house forms part of Thomas Ellis Owen walk, known as Owen's Southsea. Owen was born in 1805 in London but moved to Portsmouth at an early age, and in 1834 started designing and building villas and terraces in Southsea.

Queensbury was renovated in 2005 but still has a number of architectural features including alcoves and fireplaces. The renovation also won the award for the most sympathetic renovation by the 'Thomas Ellis Owen Society'.

There is also some anecdotal evidence suggesting that Queen Victoria once stayed in Queens Lodge, the adjacent property, as her maid of honour, the Hon. Beatrice Byng, was certainly living in the house in 1861.

The house has a guide price of £1,000,000 and is being marketed by Fine & Country. For more information email [email protected]
