Full description

Quarr House offers sensibly configured accommodation over two floors, with light and bright rooms. The layout lends itself either as a generous family house with five bedrooms, or a four bedroom house with an integrated annexe. The sitting room is flooded with natural light thanks to its triple aspect, and has French windows giving access the terrace and gardens. The kitchen has the same, and is generously
sized for a family, and has an Aga in addition to electric cooking facilities. An attribute worthy of special mention is the stone flagged floor in the dining hall. The entire house has been fully redecorated in recent weeks.

Quarr House is in the hamlet of Quarr close to
the popular village of Cucklington. The nearby
towns of Gillingham (3.5 miles) and Wincanton
(4.5 miles) both have a wide range of shops and amenities. The cathedral city of Salisbury and the historic Georgian city of Bath are both within about 30 miles. Communications are excellent with the A303 trunk road, providing access to the M3 and London being about two miles to the north. Mainline railway stations are at Gillingham 3.5 miles (London Waterloo 1 hour 58 minutes), Templecombe, 5 miles, (London Waterloo 2 hours 6 minutes) and Castle Cary, 12 miles, (London Paddington 1 hour 40 minutes). The area offers a number of well known state and independent schools including Kings Bruton, Hazelgrove, Bruton School for Girls, Port Regis, St Mary's Shaftesbury,
Sherborne, Millfield, Downside, Clayesmore,
Hanford, Bryanston and Milton Abbey.

The house is accessed from a village lane and the driveway is laid to gravel, with ample space to park six or more vehicles if necessary. The double garage with independent electric doors faces the front gate, and is conveniently near the back door to the house. The garage integrates into the garden room/party barn - the same building houses the various store rooms/shed etc. A separate office/studio building with WC and kitchenette (a potential detached annexe) lies on the other side of the drive, and again within easy reach of the house.

The gardens are principally laid to lawn with a
well stocked flower beds and shrub borders. A partially walled area outside the sitting room and kitchen French windows also has a terrace, ideal for the BBQ, which is partially covered by a veranda. The kitchen garden has an excellent greenhouse, and a series of substantial raised beds, and is enclosed by fencing and a beech hedge adjacent to a small orchard.

The paddock is at present not fenced from the lawn, but easily could be, and offers grazing for those with horses or livestock. Stabling could be erected, subject to the necessary consents.
