Ridgewood House was built in 1998 and has attractive rendered brick elevations under a tiled roof. The main house currently extends to about 5,374 sq ft and the Coach House to 1,928 sqft. Ridgewood House occupies an exclusive position in one of the most sought after and superbly accessible locations outside London. The area is synonymous with some of the world’s most prominent families and lies very close to the edge of the 4,800acre Windsor Great Park. The property benefits from exceptional access to London. The M25 provides access to Heathrow Airport and the M4, which provides direct access into the heart of London.
