    About this property

    • A delightful first floor apartment within a historical gated development with excellent gardens and a view over the Berkshire countryside.

      Kings Ride House was built in the 18th century for King George III as a hunting lodge. Apartment D is located on the first floor and comprises a spacious entrance hall, an open plan sitting room and dining room defined by a split level arrangement and a fully integrated kitchen/casual dining area with a central island and private balcony.

      There are two good size double bedrooms, both with fitted wardrobes and two bath/shower rooms (one being en suite which is fitted with a jacuzzi bath and walk in wet room with rainfall shower and body jets). The apartment enjoys unrivalled natural views through sash windows of the well maintained communal grounds.

      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 the property has the benefit of a double garage.

    For me, Kings Ride House is one of the best examples of a country house conversion in Ascot. Flat D benefits from private balcony space overlooking the idyllic parkland; perfect for a morning coffee.
