About this property

  • Kings Ride House was built in the 18th century for King George III as a hunting lodge. Apartment G is located on the top floor with high ceilings and sash windows.

    The accommodation features a double aspect drawing room with a feature fireplace and views over the communal gardens and beyond. There is a fully integrated kitchen with a central island and a study/bedroom four. The principal bedroom suite extends the width of the building offering extensive storage and a luxurious walk-in bath/shower room. There are two further bedrooms and a separate shower room.

    Kings Ride House is a gated development set in about 5.3 acres of mature and partially wooded communal grounds giving a sense of peace and privacy. The sweeping driveway leads to a generous parking area, visitors parking and a single garage.

For me, Kings Ride House is one of the best examples of a country house conversion in Ascot. Flat G has been renovated throughout whilst remaining sympathetic to original features.
