About this property

  • Quarry Cottage offers versatile accommodation arranged over three storeys. Currently, it features five bedrooms and two reception rooms, but it could easily be configured as a four-bedroom home with an additional reception room on the ground floor. The elevated setting provides the house with commanding views to the rear, overlooking the private gardens and the woodland and countryside beyond.

    As you approach the house, there is parking available for several vehicles on the driveway. The ground floor boasts an impressive reception room, arranged in an L-shape to provide both a sitting room and a formal dining room (currently used as a games room). The living room features a large picture window with views over the rear garden. The kitchen is modern and attractive, with space for a dining table and access to a balcony that overlooks the garden. Also on the ground floor is bedroom five, which includes an en suite shower room and would also make an excellent study or office. The upper and lower floors comprise four double bedrooms and three bath/shower rooms.

    Throughout, the house is beautifully presented with modern fixtures and fittings. The layout offers interesting options that would suit both a growing family and those looking to downsize in equal measure.

    Quarry Cottage is located on Gibraltar Lane, a highly sought-after road in Cookham Dean. The house is set back from the road behind electric gates and a paved driveway with ample parking. The rear garden is simply and beautifully landscaped, featuring a lawn overlooked by a large balcony terrace accessed from the kitchen/dining room. The garden feels wonderfully leafy and secluded, bordered by trees and low hedging, and backed by wooden panel fencing.
