Set on the edge of Burnham Market, the detached new home is currently on the market with Sowerbys at a guide price of £1,250,000.

Featuring five double bedrooms and four bathrooms, it has been completed to a high specification, offering well-proportioned accommodation over three floors.

Externally, the house replicates the symmetry of the Georgian era and this carries on inside, where the interiors have been just as carefully designed. Here there are light and airy rooms, with high ceilings and large windows that take in the splendid countryside views around the house.

On entering Burnham Chase, visitors are greeted by a generous entrance hall, which has an unusually high ceiling and is a bright, inviting space.

The property boasts an impressive turning staircase. Picture: courtesy of Sowerbys The property boasts an impressive turning staircase. Picture: courtesy of Sowerbys

This leads into the inner hallway, which has an engineered oak floor and where there is an impressive turning staircase, finished in oak and with glass balustrades.

The stairwell and hallway are flooded with natural light as there are large windows to both the first and second floor landings.

To the front of the property there is a spacious sitting room, which is double aspect and has two large sash-style windows overlooking the front garden. The focal point of this room is a stylish wood-burning stove, with a stone hearth.

There are are also French windows on to the garden and large integrated inner sliding doors, which open up to create an even more spacious reception room for entertaining. Closing these doors off, however, cleverly creates a snug or study area, where those living here will be able to enjoy some quiet time.

At the rear of the house, is the impressive kitchen, dining and living room: this is a real family space. It has a stylish modern kitchen area, with a wide range of quality appliances, including an integrated Bosch dishwasher and Samsung American-style fridge-freezer. There is an island, with a quartz work surface and side, as well as further units and oak work surfaces.

Once again flooded with light, this room has skylights, floor-to-ceiling glazed windows and sliding doors, which lead out to the rear garden and terrace.

Opening these doors will create one outstanding indoor-outdoor area, which will be excellent for family living and entertaining.

Also on the ground floor is a utility room and cloakroom.

Burnham Chase features five double bedrooms and four bathrooms. Picture: courtesy of Sowerbys Burnham Chase features five double bedrooms and four bathrooms. Picture: courtesy of Sowerbys

Up on the first floor, the landing window looks out over open fields. The master bedroom also has pleasant views, and opens into an en suite bathroom, with a contemporary suite including a panelled bath with tiled surround, large walk-in rainforest shower and natural stone-effect tiling.

Two more bedrooms, each with an en suite shower room, can also be found on this floor while on the floor above there is a family shower room and two more bedrooms, both with panoramic views.

Outside, the grounds have been landscaped: to the front, there is a gravel driveway with parking for several vehicles.

The remainder of the garden is laid to lawn with planted box trees arranged to match the Georgian symmetry of the house.
