Quarry House – New Homes

"The idea is there locked inside. All you have to do is remove the excess stone"

– MICHAELANGELO

Our next exciting project is for a large country house situated in Marnhull, North Dorset. We plan to build using natural Marnhull stone with ashlar features including cills and lintels, chimneys and quoins. The house will be accessed by a long sweeping gravel drive with electric gates.

The entrance hall will welcome you with parquet flooring and a bespoke oak staircase. Continuing the opulent feel through the house, it will feature stone fireplaces. Underfloor heating will be fitted on the ground floor and attractive cast iron radiators will be used on the first floor. Inside this grand house we plan to use open oak trusses and purlins, and sliding sash wooden windows.

The kitchen, a truly well appointed space where practicality meets and, accommodates family and social life.

 

First, an area dedicated to refrigeration and storage. Maybe a tall larder cupboard houses an integrated fridge on the left and a pantry on the right, then a couple of deep and roomy essential pan drawers. A little open base cupboard tucked on the end of the run, perfect for displaying your children’s artistic creations or other objet d’art.

 

Next is the island, the junction for all activity with a generous ceramic Belfast sink and draining area, strategically placed to make the most of the rural views of the surrounding countryside. 

 

And so onto the cooking area, a range cooker will take centre stage, with ample storage either side at the bottom and a mantle complimented with open shelves and a variety of wall cupboards above.

 

A custom kitchen, is a crucial element of any project, this one will occupy a soaring oak-framed extension; have space for eating and offer direct access to the terrace and gardens beyond. A stunning space to entertain the family or wow your guests.

 

The kitchen offers the strongest sense of home. It’s the place where we watch our children grow and the seasons change.

 

In every detail we collectively pay homage to the integrity of the buildings we create as your future family home.

 

Quarry House will have five generous bedrooms, three with their own en-suite.

In addition there are plans for a triple stone garage with room above to suit client choice, which could be an extra bedroom or office.

On the exterior we will use small plain tiles for the roof.

An acre of landscaped gardens will surround a natural stone paving terrace where you will be able to sit and take in field views of Dorset
