Westbury-sub-Mendip is a village with a population of about 800, situated on the southern slopes of the Mendip Hills, half-way between Wells and the world-famous Cheddar Gorge. The village has a good community with many societies and organisations, a pub, village stores and post office and not least an excellent primary school (for seniors it is within the Blue School catchment area). In addition the village is on the Wells Cathedral School bus route. For more information on the village go to www.westbury-sub-mendip.org.uk Quarry House stands on the eastern approach to the village in gently elevated position with breathtaking views from all levels. The house is well back from the roadway and is a handsome, striking and most impressive building with beautiful stone elevations under a weathered tiled roof.

Description 
The design of the structure is exceptional and inspiring being strongly influenced by Saxon architecture with post and cruck framing with oak timbers. It has well insulated walls with stone facing and the depth of the walls has a great beneficial impact on creating its character. Other architectural details include the staircases, timber floors, matching solid doors and the overhang of the roof which beautifully deflects the sunlight. Indeed as the house matures and settles into its landscape it will be very difficult to determine its origin and undoubtedly will be an exceptional period house of the future. From the entrance drive a short flight of steps leads to a paved stone terrace with small shallow ponds designed to reflect the sunlight. The main entrance door leads into a large reception hall with a tiled floor, oak posts and a fireplace with wood burning stove. This is a large room with doors leading off and the focal point being the twin staircases leading to the first...

**** 
There are two other rooms on this floor. The boot room is an ideal store and contains the heat recovery system. The pantry or wine cellar has a spiral staircase which discretely leads to the kitchen. The twin stairs meet on a half landing lit by velux rooflights and then lead to the first floor living area which prompts an image of the great hall of a Saxon manor house with greenoak posts, beams and rafters and a vaulted ceiling. This living area is 40ft long with hardwood double glazed windows the entire length and part of the east wall. These windows are an amazing feature and give unparalleled panoramic views over the rolling countryside. Within the room the timber floor has a herringbone design with a free standing Scandinavian wood burning stove at one end and an open fireplace at the other. There's also a door to the garden.

***** 
To the side of the room is the kitchen with bespoke solid painted timber wall and island units and marble and polished concrete worktops. There's a 4 oven cream electric Aga and integrated appliances include a dishwasher, fridge and freezer. On the west side of the living area is a hallway which serves a cloakroom, a bedroom with an en suite bathroom and a further bedroom which again can be used for any purpose such as a study, snug, etc. A staircase leads from this hall to the second floor where there are two further bedrooms and a bathroom.

Outside

In addition there is a footpath access from the rear garden into the village. The grounds are about half an acre and can be left in a simple format or further developed.
