Property description

Tenure: Freehold

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.

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.


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. The bespoke handmade kitchen was fitted by a local company with an attention to detail and high end appliances. The
central island can ingeniously be moved from work space to added entertaining space with the breakfast area enjoying bi folding doors out to the sheltered patio. From the kitchen, there are twin doors to a large walk in larder, a delightful snug area and a door to the sizeable boot room/utility which could be adapted for multiple uses. On the first floor, the light landing allows access to five bedrooms including the principal bedroom which has a full length range of bespoke fitted wardrobes, door out to the balcony, feature fireplace and en suite bathroom with a bath, walk in shower, two basins and a WC. The guest bedroom also enjoys an ensuite shower room in
addition to a family bathroom. Accessed by an internal door, a second staircase rises to the second floor with a large double bedroom, sink and shower along with far reaching views.
