About this property

  • Occupying an enviable central location, 16 Quarry Street is an individual period home with stylish interiors and well planned accommodation of approximately 3000 sq ft, set over four floors. Grade II listed with origins from the 1500's, the property is full of immense character and charm, whilst being sympathetically modernised and updated by the current owners.

    The kitchen / breakfast room is very much the heart of the home with its unique arched windows, ample space to dine, flowing into a generously sized sitting room. The kitchen has been fitted with traditional style cabinetry, a butler sink, a range cooker and has beautiful exposed original beams. The sitting room has a striking bay window which fills the room with natural light and there is wood burning stove with ornate tiles and an exquisite fireplace / surround. There is an additional reception room on the first floor, generous in size measuring over 23ft.

    There are five well-proportioned bedrooms presented over the four floors, this flexible accommodation lends itself to family life and hosting guests. The principal bedroom enjoys a magnificent freestanding bath tub. Of note on the second floor is a generous eaves storage space.

    Outside, the property enjoys a spacious tiered rear garden, well screened by mature hedging and specimen trees. There is a fabulous outbuilding / home office with a separate WC, bifold doors, and a fabulous bar. This space lends itself to either working from home or entertaining and enjoying the delightful garden particularly during the spring and summer seasons.
