Markers, as it stands today is a Grade II listed property, combining a Georgian house with an attached period cottage. The newly re-configured "whole" offers excellent and adaptable accommodation, ideal for family life.

The front door opens on to the large entrance hall with original Blue Lyas flagstones. To the left of the entrance hall is a good sized study with a pretty Victorian fireplace. To the right is the formal drawing room with original shutters and as this room leads through to the garden room there is a real sense of space. These rooms are wonderful for entertaining or the garden room could also be used as a playroom. Following from the entrance hall there is downstairs cloakroom.

The back door opens on to a large raised area with space for boots and fitted cupboards for coats. A large utility room with wonderful exposed stone walls provides a useful space for white goods and additional storage. The dining room features a large dining table, intricate cornicing and an open fireplace, making this the perfect space for entertaining.

The dining room leads into the breakfast room which is currently separated from the kitchen by a wall. There is recently lapsed planning
permission (resubmitted and awaiting
decision) in place to allow for the demolition of this wall to create a large kitchen/breakfast room, which would make this the heart of the home.

The sitting room adjoins the breakfast room and there is potential to create an archway through to allow the space in this part of the house to flow a little better. In the sitting room there is an efficient wood burning stove and Dorset stone floors.

There are two staircases leading up to the first
floor. In the east wing there is a master bedroom with en suite bathroom, three bedrooms, a family bathroom and a cloakroom and the westerly wing has three bedrooms, a family bathroom and cloakroom.

Markers is located in the pretty village of Cattistock about ten miles north of the historic town of Dorchester. Cattistock has an extremely active village community and a busy social calendar. The village has a very popular local pub; The Fox and Hounds and there is a village hall where regular plays and pantomimes are hosted. The village also boasts a tennis club with immaculate grass courts, a football club and cricket club that all meet regularly further cementing the sociable nature of this village. The Dorset Knob Throwing & Frome Valley Food Festival is hosted annually in Cattistock and has become an extremely popular attraction helping to raise funds for the local clubs and community. Cattistock also has a post office and tea room. Nearby Dorchester offers a wider variety ofshopping opportunities and restaurants.

The property is well located with access to the A303 via the A37 and also the south coast via the A354. Nearby Dorchester has a mainline train station providing access up to London Waterloo in 2h36mins.

There are a number of well-regarded schools in the area both in the state and the private sector including; Greenford School, Beaminster School, Thomas Hardye School, Sandroyd, Sherborne, Leweston, Hazelgrove and Perrott Hill.

Markers is within the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This beautiful countryside provides extensive walking, cycling and horse riding opportunities, a large number of which are directly accessible from Markers. There is also an abundance of local fishing and shooting too with the Dorchester Fishing Club being particularly noteworthy.

Markers is approached from Duck Street and has designated parking on the street in addition to a single garage. To the rear of the property are two walled gardens that are linked through an archway in the wall. In one walled garden the lawn leads up to the rear of the property where there is a studio with running water and electricity, which could be converted into ancillary accommodation subject to the necessary planning consent. There is also a stable, currently used for storage, and a number of productive raised beds in a kitchen garden. Through the archway the lawn continues and leads down to the single garage and an additional shed that, subject to the necessary planning permission, could be converted to
create a double garage.
