A first floor apartment within a converted Grade II* Listed Georgian mansion set in attractive communal gardens and grounds extending to approximately two acres with views over the surrounding farmland
THE HISTORY OF RAMRIDGE HOUSE
Ramridge House is a fine example of a Grade II* listed Georgian country mansion that was designed and built by Robert Adam in 1779 and extended in 1855. In the late 1800s it was owned by Colonel Charles d’Oyly Harmer, whose descendants lived there until it was requisitioned in 1939. During the Second World War Ramridge House became a Royal Air Force headquarters and Officers’ Mess until 1952. It then remained uninhabited until 1986 when it was extensively refurbished and converted into nine luxury apartments, carefully restored by craftsmen to retain much of the original charm and period features.
5 Ramridge House is an impressive first floor apartment of approximately 851 sq ft offering spacious, light accommodation with high ceilings, classic features and stunning views over the beautifully landscaped communal gardens, grounds and adjoining countryside. The house is approached via a long sweeping private drive off the village lane, approached through the entrance with two attractive gatehouses.
The apartment is accessed through a large communal reception hall with wide staircase rising to the front door on the first floor. Inside the accommodation comprises a long spacious entrance hall with ample built-in book shelving and double doors leading into a stunning spacious split level drawing room with separate fully fitted kitchen area. There is large double bedroom with built-in wardrobes and also a shower room. Stunning far reaching views are enjoyed from all the windows which benefit from the original folding shutters. There is also a garage within a block and ample parking for guests within the beautifully maintained communal two acre gardens and grounds featuring many mature trees within a tranquil parkland setting.
Ramridge House is situated in a quiet parkland setting, approximately one mile from the village of Weyhill which has a good range of facilities, including a restaurant and farm shop, the Weyhill Fair pub and Pink Olive restaurant, garage, good bus service and a beautiful church. In the restored Fair Ground there is a craft centre and the excellent new Rosebourne garden centre complex is nearby. The town of Andover, just 3 miles away, offers a comprehensive range of shopping, educational and leisure facilities as well as a mainline railway station providing fast services to London (Waterloo is just over the hour). Access to the A303 is about a mile away, providing excellent routes to London and the West Country. The cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury are around 20 miles away, Newbury is 17 miles to the north and Basingstoke 25 miles away to the east.
