A handsome early Victorian residence with nicely proportioned rooms and wonderful original features. This carefully and most sympathetically restored four bedroom house stands with a small but secluded garden, tandem garage and together with a self contained one bedroom cottage.

The tall box sash windows are typical of the Victorian period provide lots of light to the lofty and elegant rooms. The decoration in neutral white throughout most of the house emphasizes the light and airy characteristics. The rooms are comfortable, practical and adaptable both for family, individual or a work from home environment. The accommodation includes an entrance porch, open plan sitting room inner hall, separate dining room and kitchen on the ground floor. The fine dog-leg staircase with half landing and a spacious main landing leads to the four first floor bedrooms. There is a Jack and Jill arrangement for bedrooms one and two and a good sized house bathroom both fitted with contemporary suites.

The garden cottage is a two storey building with ground floor kitchen and a first floor living bedroom and ensuite. The property has frontage to Beckland Hill at its junction with Low Street. The part walled garden with lawn and shrub borders is private and secluded.

The property is situated in the heart of East Markham village. The church is described by Nikolaus Pevsner in his book The Buildings of England, as "the most splendid church in this part of the county". This charming village has many examples of Georgian and character property and local landmarks include Markham Hall and Cleveland Windmill.

Local amenities include a primary school, butcher, farm shop and two pubs. There is also a playing field, tennis courts and a bowling green. The village is ideally placed for commuting to Newark, Lincoln and Nottingham. Fast main line trains capable of journey times between Newark Northgate station and London King's Cross in just over 75 minutes. There are access points to the A1 at Markham Moor.
