Hall, kitchen/breakfast room, sitting room, dining room, 3 bedrooms, bathroom, barn, granary, stables, store, gardens

Approached along a private driveway, leading off Kimpton Road, is Old Ramridge Farmhouse, a beautiful unmodernised Grade II Listed 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom detached property with barn, stables, granary and outbuildings, overlooking pastureland.

The farmhouse, which was originally built in the early sixteenth century as an open hall, is simply beautiful with its traditional handsome charm.

The property would benefit from refurbishment, but once completed, this would make a beautiful character home in a lovely rural, yet convenient location. The house has a wealth of period features, including a superb Gothic style arch into the kitchen, oak panelled walls and a large, quite stunning, inglenook fireplace with seating in the sitting room.

There is planning consent provided to convert the barn and stables into two 3 bedroom separate dwellings, each with private gardens, outdoor storage and parking (North Herts. DC ref: 09/01748/1). Great thought and consideration has gone into the design of the two new homes, which seeks to retain the character of the original buildings, utilising exposed beams and traditional styled windows and doors. Total size of the site is 3.27 acres.
