About this property

TENURE: Freehold

  • Waterside

WATERSIDE - Quarry Bank was built in 1896 on the site of Bisham Quarry, which was originally an important medieval source of stone, much of which was used to build Windsor Castle. The property was divided into two residences in 1951 and since 2000 has been extensively modernised by the current owners with an abundance of spacious and well proportioned accommodation. Still retaining a wealth of original features, Quarry Bank enjoys high ceilings, balconies to the front and is both

elegant and beautifully presented throughout.

This property is featured by our Waterside department.

Outside
The annexe/home office was adapted in 2008 from a previous outbuilding and is fully insulated with underfloor heating, shower room and kitchen. It was completely rebuilt in 2015 with two sky lights, fully insulated and underfloor heating and could also be used as a guest suite, gym or au pair suite.

To the rear of the house is a Wine cellar which was built in 2016, into the chalk hill and maintains similar temperature and conditions to the Champagne region in France. Being elevated the views from all aspects of the gardens & grounds are excellent, measuring 1.56 acres in total. This includes the wooded hillside behind the house, where wooden steps lead up to a level area with

views of the whole surrounding landscape - perfect for a day lodge to be built.

Approached over a curving drive which allows

access for just two other properties, there is ample

parking for the household and guests plus access to the garage. The main area of lawn was formally a tennis lawn and provides a great space for entertaining with a large patio overlooking the River Thames. At the end of the gardens is a modern studio with a bar and covered outdoor dining area created during the lockdown. Crossing the private driveway there is access to the private 100ft mooring. Quarry Wood is within an ancient woodland and a Special Area of Conservation

on the banks of the Thames and has been known as Little Switzerland.

Situation
The house is situated in a highly desirable location

with the riverside town of Marlow approximately one mile away, passing the famous Compleat Angler whilst crossing Marlow Bridge. Marlow offers extensive shopping, educational and recreational facilities, including; Higginson Park beside Marlow Bridge. The M4 (J8/9) is within 7 miles and the M40 (J4) 4 miles away, both provide access to Heathrow and the national motorway network. Sporting facilities include golf with a number of local courses including Temple,

Harleyford and Henley. Buckinghamshire is renowned for its education and the area is well-served with a selection of state and independent schools for children of all ages.

Additional Information
Interior: From the ornate arched entrance porch, you enter the house and are greeted with an impressive reception hall featuring herringbone wood flooring, ornate coving, old school style radiators and the staircase rising to the first

floor. To the right, past the cloakroom is a beautifully presented drawing room which is of a generous size with twin deep bay windows, half panelled walls and a door out to the front terrace, giving a sensational view of the river. The impressive feature open fireplace with a carved

surround is both inviting and homely with oak flooring (which is common to all the reception rooms). The dining room has a feature fireplace and is a great room to entertain with fitted glassware and crockery units, sound system and heated service plate.
