Full description

Ravenswood House is a magnificent 8 bedroom detached house boasting some 9165 ft2 in total built by Field Marshal Sir Douglas Haig and currently owned by one of Britain's foremost playwrights. Most rooms are of immense proportions with high ceilings and period stone and wooden floors.

The house, which numbers the renowned actor Jos Ackland as one of its previous owners, has fabulous entertaining/family space. It is alleged that President Roosevelt once stayed at the house to play Billiards! The ground floor has a simply stunning drawing room/music room with polished pine panelling; a beautiful dining hall with the capacity to dine large numbers of guests; a recently fitted kitchen/breakfast room with all modern appliances; a second reception room; a family room; an office, two cloakrooms; utility room with storage; and of course the indoor heated swimming pool with doors opening out onto the garden.

On the first floor, the incredible master bedroom suite has a dressing area and an en-suite bathroom. There are 4 further bedrooms on this floor, 3 with en-suite bathrooms, a family bathroom, a study and a sitting room. On the second floor, there are 3 further bedrooms, a study and a family bathroom.

Outside, the garden is beautifully landscaped with lawns and mature trees and plants. To the rear of the garden is a cottage with a triple garage on the ground floor and a self-contained staff studio flat above.

This has been a very happy home for the owner. She wishes that a new owner will fill the house with children, parties and happiness.

Nestled in a private road in Coombe, Ravenswood Court is located very near to Richmond Park, Coombe Wood and Coombe Hill Golf Clubs as well as Holy Cross Preparatory, Rokeby, Marymount and Canbury Schools; meanwhile, a short distance away is Kingston Town Centre, beside the River Thames, and Norbiton Station, for trains to London Waterloo.
