Markham House is a handsome, iron-stone, four-bedroom property sitting in a peaceful location within the village of Caldecott.
Enter the property through a solid Oak door into a hallway that gives access to the ground floor accommodation and to the downstairs WC with low flush lavatory and wash hand basin. A door from the hallway leads through to the living room which has an Oak and glass staircase rising to the first floor, a large stone fireplace with space for a wood burner and two sets of timber and glazed French doors and windows out to the patio and garden allowing plenty of light.
The sitting room flows into the kitchen diner that spans the depth of the house from front to back. This spacious room has a travertine tiled floor, a good range of wooden cabinets and solid Oak work surfaces, a stainless-steel sink with mixer tap over, a Rayburn oven with extractor over, integrated dishwasher and space for an American style fridge freezer. The dining area provides ample space for furniture and has another set of timber and glazed doors and windows out to the garden.
Just off the kitchen sit the utility room and the study/snug. The large utility room provides ample space for white goods, further cabinets with solid Oak worktops, a Belfast secondary sink with mixer tap over and a door out to the driveway. The study/snug has high ceilings and a window looking out to the rear.
To the first floor there is a large landing with a vaulted ceiling providing further space for furniture and airing cupboard just off. The master bedroom again, has a vaulted ceiling with exposed timber frames, windows to three sides, a large walk in dressing area and an en-suite with low flush WC, pedestal wash hand basin and a P-shaped bath with shower over.
There are three further bedrooms, two doubles and a single, one of the doubles offering built in storage and the large single with high ceilings and exposed timbers.
These three bedrooms are served by a family bathroom that has a low flush WC, pedestal wash hand basin and a P-shaped bath with shower over.
From the outside, the property is accessed via a set of solid Oak electric gates on to a large tarmac driveway with ample space for parking and providing access to the oak-framed double car port with covered access to the utility door.

The garden is predominantly laid to lawn with a wooden decked area sitting directly off the rear of the property and is surrounded on all sides by an iron-stone wall.
