    About this property

    • Quarry Cottage provides highly flexible accommodation, being arranged over three storeys. Currently it is arranged as five bedrooms and two reception rooms, but it would work equally well as a four bedroom home which would give space for an extra reception room on the ground floor. The elevated nature of the setting gives the house a commanding view to the rear over the private gardens and the woodland and countryside beyond.

      Approaching the house the is parking for several vehicles to the driveway. To the ground floor is an impressive reception room, L-shape to provide a sitting room and formal dining room (currently used as a games room). The living room has a large picture window overlooking the rear. The kitchen is modern and attractive with space for a dining table, beyond which is a balcony overlooking the garden. Also to the ground floor is bedroom five with an en suite shower room, this room also would work well as a study/office. To the upper and lower floors are four double bedrooms and three bath/shower rooms.

      Throughout, the house is presented beautifully with modern fixtures and fittings. The layout provides for interesting options that would suit both a growing family or a ‘downsizer' in equal measure.

    Local information

    • Gibraltar Lane is a coveted location, a lovely country lane that runs parallel to the River Thames with a mix of mostly large attractive family homes. The lane is elevated from the riverside and is bordered by National Trust woodland.
    • Cookham Dean is a quaint village with two popular public houses, with Cookham Rise providing a range of shops for everyday needs.
    • The train station in Cookham Rise provides a shuttle service to Marlow in one direction and Maidenhead the other, connecting with the mainline for speedy access to London Paddington. Crossrail services (when launched) will be stopping at Maidenhead.
    • The larger town of Marlow is a couple of miles from the property, offering a superb range of shops with an eclectic mix of local independent and national retailers. There are numerous bars, cafes and restaurants dotted around the town offering destinations for any occasion. The town itself is situated on the banks of the River Thames and the Thames Path follows the river through the town.
    • Just outside the town, the area opens out to glorious rolling countryside and a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Outdoor pursuits are numerous, as are golf, football, cricket and rugby clubs.
    • For commuters, the town has a train station to Paddington (via Maidenhead) and the M4 and M40 motorways are accessed from the A404(M) which passes the town.

    Additional information

    • Directions: From Marlow town, head away from the High Street over the river and turn left into Quarry Wood Road, continuing along this road up the steep hill to the top of Winter Hill. As the road levels off, follow it keeping to the left at the triangular green and follow Winter Hill for about half a mile, past the impressive viewpoint overlooking the river. Shortly after, take a sharp left into Gibraltar Lane. Quarry Cottage can be found half way along the road on the right hand side.
