The Quarry, in its lovely setting off Binstead Road.
BEAUTIFUL gardens where you can entertain, wind down in a swimming pool, jacuzzi or hot tub, stroll over a bridge spanning a koi pond or wander by a waterfall create a wonderful setting for a Binstead home.
At The Quarry, off Binstead Road, guests will be wowed by a drink at a pool’s swim-up bar, with music and lighting, by sunbathing by the pool or by dining on a terrace above or in a purpose-built barbecue hut.
The landscaped, terraced gardens, with sweeping lawns, shrubs, trees and a waterfall tumbling to the carp pond make delightful views from the detached house.
The home’s extensive, flexible space is as varied as the gardens.
A large lounge, with a big, arched open fireplace, is ideal for a cosy winter’s night and a generous-sized dining room is perfect for formal occasions.
A spacious conservatory, wrapped around a rear corner of the house, really comes into in own in summer. It has living and dining space and access to the decked area with a hot tub and barbecue shack as well as the barbecue terrace.
The kitchen/breakfast room, leading to the barbecue terrace, also has space for a table and there is a third bedroom downstairs that could be another reception room.
Taking up the whole of the first floor are two large bedrooms, each with en-suite facilities and views over the front gardens.
In the lounge is a study area with a built-in desk but, down in the basement, reached from the kitchen/breakfast room, is space ideal for an office or gym.
Off-road parking is next to an attractive walled area, with a pedestrian gate to wooded side gardens. These have a shed and pool equipment concealed in an old shelter.
The path splits into two, with one way continuing to the barbecue/dining terrace and the other leading to the wisteria-draped front veranda and a terrace overlooking the pond and gardens.
Beyond the large front door, with its circular glazed panel, is the entrance hall with a contemporary WC and handbasin in a tile-floored cloakroom.
An inner hallway leads to bedroom four/reception room, with a square side bay window, bedroom three, with an en-suite shower cubicle and handbasin, the large dining room, with a corner fireplace, the spacious lounge with double doors to the front terrace and the kitchen/breakfast room. This has fitted units, a larder cupboard, a built-in oven and hob and space for appliances.
Reached from the lounge is the L-shaped, double-glazed conservatory.
A hardwood staircase leads to the first-floor landing, with a pool outlook.
The large en-suite bathroom to bedroom one incorporates a dressing area. Tiled flooring with heating beneath features here and in the bathroom to bedroom two, which includes a spa bath with shower and screen.
