Full description

Tenure: Freehold

There has been a house on this site since the 1950s. However, the property went through a significant extension and remodelling in late 1990s and further additions in 2007. These alterations, incorporating the original house, have transformed the property into the gracious and imposing property that it now is. The house provides an excellent balance of accommodation which is arranged on three floors with a number of the main receptions rooms and bedrooms having impressive proportions and views over the garden and beyond.

Quarry House is approached off the Stow on the Wold to Broadway road, through a belt of trees and electric gates. The drive sweeps around the garden to a gravel parking area at the front of the house. The front door opens into an impressive entrance hall with staircase to the first floor. Off the hall are the principal reception rooms and access to the kitchen/ breakfast room, which in turn leads through to the utility room where the back door opens to a rear courtyard with additional parking and garaging. The staircase rises to the first floor landing off which is the principal bedroom suite, the guest bedroom suite and four further en-suite bedrooms.

Two secondary staircases lead to the second floor which is configured as a one bedroom flat with further potential.

Quarry House is situated in a spectacular elevated position on the edge of the village of Longborough which is equidistant between Moreton in Marsh and Stow on the Wold. The property has extensive views over its own land and the Evenlode Valley beyond.

The village of Longborough has a public house, church, village stores and is home to the annual Longborough Opera Festival. There is access to a number of regional centres including Cheltenham, Oxford, Cirencester, Stratford upon Avon and Birmingham, all of which offer extensive private and state education. Moreton in Marsh and Stow on the Wold provide for most everyday needs, whilst Daylesford Organic Farm is within 6 miles and Soho Farmhouse within 20 miles.

Communications are excellent with access to main line stations in Moreton in Marsh or Kingham which both provide a fast service to London Paddington via Oxford taking from approximately 87 minutes. Birmingham and Heathrow airports are 45 and 76 miles respectively.

There is an outstanding range of established state and private schools in the area including Cheltenham College, Cheltenham Ladies College, Kitebrook House, Dormer House, Bloxham School and Tudor Hall.

The property stands in approximately 16.7 acres of lawned gardens and a paddock which extends to approximately 6 acres. Within the grounds is an astro turf tennis court (in need of some attention) and an indoor/ outdoor swimming pool complex with changing rooms and barbecue area. Planning permission has been granted for a significant garage block, an entertainment barn and a two-bedroom cottage.
