Quarry House was built in the mid 1960s and has been in its present ownership for the last 30 years, a testimony of how delightful a place it is to live. The house itself has brick elevations under a tile roof and stands within a mature setting offering a high degree of privacy, peace and seclusion. All the principal rooms are arranged to take advantage of the southerly aspect and look out across the woodland dell and pond cradled in the bowl of the old quarry from which the house takes its name. On the ground floor there is a split level entrance hall with galleried staircase and landing served by a cloakroom, an excellent range of built in cupboards and a door direct to the garage and boiler room. The sitting room is open plan with the dining room, has a bay window and a sliding patio door to the south facing terrace. There is a fitted kitchen and breakfast room with its own direct access to the garden. The main bedroom is on the ground floor, has a double aspect to catch the morning sun and an extensive range of wardrobes and cupboards. It is served with an en-suite bathroom.
On the first floor there are three more bedrooms, all with built in cupboards and wardrobes served by a second bathroom and a separate shower room. The house is in need of some modernisation but perfectly comfortable as it stands. Given the quality of the site it is considered to have potential for further redevelopment.
A five bar gate opens to a tarmac parking and turning area adjacent to which is a double garage with workbench, hose tap, cupboards and a boiler room. The garden immediately surrounding the house takes the form of level well maintained lawns served by a south facing terrace, two aluminium greenhouses and a garden store building. Stretching out to the south is a wonderfully peaceful and secluded dell set with a mass of spring flowers and all focused on a charming pond held within the bowl of what was the old quarry from which the house takes its name. This area in turn opens out to an additional carpet of lawn which at one time provided a small pitch and put course, it is studded with fine mature trees (principally beech) and overlooks the Cornford River at the bottom. There is a separate field gate access to one side enabling this area to be accessed with machinery and capable of use as a small paddock if desired. The whole extends to just over 1 acre.
