About the property:

An 18th century detached cottage with later extensions offering good sized living accommodation and plenty of period features including exposed beams and large inglenook fireplaces. The property does require some updating and has three reception rooms in addition to a recently built conservatory, four bedrooms and two bathrooms. A landscaped garden wraps around three sides and there is also a double garage and driveway parking.

About the inside:

Entering the property through the conservatory you are welcomed into the entrance hall which is open to the large fitted kitchen, with a quarry tiled floor, oil fired Rayburn and a door to the rear. The triple aspect dining room, part of a 1970s extension, has polished wooden floorboards and French doors into the conservatory. The original part of the cottage has a cosy dual aspect sitting room with a large stone fireplace at each end, one housing a woodburning stove. Behind this fireplace is the study, again with a feature inglenook fireplace which could be reopened, and exposed beams.
From the entrance hall stairs lead up to a spacious landing with doors to three of the four bedrooms. The principal bedroom is triple aspect with views across open countryside to Chew Valley lake. There is also a single bedroom and a shower room. The third bedroom, with exposed beams and pretty cottage windows has a further door which leads into the large Jack and Jill family bathroom. From here a door takes you to another landing with access to the fourth bedroom, a lovely double room with exposed floorboards. An open tread staircase leads back down to the sitting room.

About the outside:

The cottage has a private driveway which leads to a useful double garage. The drive then takes you up to the main house. The established mature garden is terraced and wraps around the front and side offering a number of lawns, flowerbeds and a raised patio taking in the views of the countryside.

About the area:

Quarry Cottage is situated near the popular and charming village of West Harptree on the northern edge of the Mendip Hills and close to the Chew Valley. Within the village there is a strong community with a well-known village shop bakery. There is also a church, village hall, two public houses, a dentist, doctor’s surgery and beauticians. The Chew Valley and Blagdon lakes are close by, notable for their fishing, birdlife, sailing and nature study amenities. The Mendip Hills, well known for their limestone features, provide a wide range of informal leisure opportunities.

The property is ideally located for those commuting to Bristol, Bath and the local market towns. The regional centre of Bristol is 12 miles to the north whilst the Heritage City of Bath is 14 miles to the north east. The Cathedral City of Wells offers further facilities, including a popular twice weekly farmers market, and is 7 miles to the south.
