Tenure: Freehold

The Cedars is a Grade II listed Georgian property with a particularly attractive southern elevation. Located on the edge of this popular village and sat in 1.2 acres of garden, the property offers seven bedrooms, a one bedroom annex, swimming pool, tennis court and garaging

The property has origins back to the 17th Century, though the elegant frontage, which provides the principal rooms of the house, was added around 1800. This elevation features two well-crafted bow windows with 12 pane sashes over two stories around a central door with an elegant fan light over. The property is positioned within this popular village on the edge of the River Kennett with rolling countryside beyond.
From the entrance hall, there is the earlier inner hall with a cantilevered staircase and the property is arranged over three floors and has recently undergone complete renovation throughout to the highest of standards. The majority of the reception rooms and bedrooms are south facing and benefit from a number of features including high ceilings, open fireplaces, intricate cornicing and high skirting.
The Cedars benefits from two entrances to either side of the property, with one leading into a courtyard with the triple bay garage. We understand there is planning consent to create a one bedroom flat within this building, if required. Within the garden, there is an enclosed swimming pool and a door leading to an enclosed tennis court with paved terrace area for viewing. There is a bothy at the bottom of the garden on the banks of a carrier to the River Kennet.

The Cedars is situated on the southern edge of this popular village with a General Store, Doctors' Surgery, Post Office, Library, two Public Houses and is surrounded by countryside designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village of Ramsbury lies between Hungerford and Marlborough, both of which offer good shopping and other facilities. The earliest history of the village of Ramsbury can be tracked back to the Saxons who considered the site of such importance, that a
Bishopric was created and a Cathedral built. This lasted from 909 AD to 1058 AD when it was joined with Sherborne. Of the ten early Bishop's of Ramsbury, three
became Archbishop's of Canterbury. For many hundreds of years, the area was farmed and the village grew through its strategic position on the London to Bath
and Bristol roads. The tanning industry developed in the 17th Century and the local brewing of beer grew into the larger production of “Ramsbury Ale”.
