Ramsay was built in 1895 by William H. Langhorne. Today it consists of a 5,300-square-foot main house, a detached garage, a farm house, a guest cottage, a studio and other support buildings. The current owner, Harry Lankenau, has put the property on the market. Concierge Auctions held an absolute auction on October 19, 2012. [1] The winning bidder was not immediately identified, nor was the final sale price. [2]

The estate is named after an 18th century British settler who had received a land patent for the property.

In 1937, Irene Langhorne Gibson hired architect Milton Grigg to make major renovations to the house. [3]
