A handsome and beautifully presented Georgian residence commanding direct views over Burnham Market Green.
Westgate House is a most attractive Georgian residence which given its position, commands spectacular views through its original large sash windows across Burnham Market's famous green, and the neighbouring St Marys Church.
The current owners have recently carried out an extensive refurbishment, which delivers a stunning modern home, fused beautifully with the many period decorative and architectural features the property has retained since its construction. The property has been enhanced by the introduction of vintage sanitary ware within the bathrooms, light neutral décor to all walls, and new carpets and curtains throughout.
The beautiful walled rear garden benefits greatly from its Southern orientation, and makes for a secluded haven away from the vibrancy and convenience of the village. The house has a large attached garage, which in this location is indeed a rarity.

"Thank you so much for your help in the marketing and selling of both our properties. We choose Sowerbyâ€™s due to their staff. They seem to be a different brand of estate agent, helpful and courteous and very understanding. We have experienced both sides of the housing market with one sale that could not have been smoother and completed within six weeks and another that fell through twice, (third time lucky!) and that seemed fraught with difficulties right until the last moment! This is when the agents earn their fee. I am afraid at times I required a great deal of hand holding and found the whole process overwhelming at times, but with all your help we got there!! A huge thank you to all the team, we are now living in our dream home!"
