Property flirt: a room with a royal view
Take a tour of this period cottage with a crown-wearing neighbour, cosy living space, garden office and VIP access to the Long Walk. Can you guess the price?
Location location location! How does a Grade II listed cottage with a royal neighbour, grab you? This pretty period property in Windsor gives your your own VIP access to the Long Walk – but can you guess how much it costs?
Unless you’re a crown-wearing royal living at Windsor Castle, Kings Road is one of Windsor’s most prestigious addresses. It’s a cosy, two-bed blank canvas, offering 1,059 sq ft of light, airy living space with period features. The jewel in this home’s crown is views of the Long Walk and VIP access from the garden.
Downstairs, there’s a spacious kitchen, plus a cosy lounge at the front with an open fire – perfect for a cheeky glass of red after a stroll among the thousands of fallow deer on the Long Walk. To the rear, there is a second reception room with French doors opening out to the sun terrace and rear garden. A lovely spot for your dining table or simply staring mindfully out into the garden.
Upstairs, there are two bedrooms that are ideal for a couple – although the second bedroom is begging to be transformed into a stonking dressing room. There’s also a bathroom with an elegant roll-top bath, and over bath shower.
Shall we take this outside? Yeah we should. The enclosed back garden has a sun terrace, lawn, pretty flower beds and a super-cool modern garden studio. As working from home is now the new normal, this is a game changer for a bit of work-life balance. The pièce de résistance? That delicious direct access to the Long Walk. You’ll have VIP snooping rights to royal comings and goings and FROW seats for the Platinum Jubilee Celebrations later this year.
Now you’ve whet your whistle, how much do you think it costs? Drop your guesses in the comments below, and then head to the Strutt & Parker website to see if you’re right (no peeking!).
