If more sides make a better property, then this octagon house in Brentwood is the best on the market.

Listed at £1,400,000, it is described as Brentwood's "best kept secret" by estate agent Bairstow Eves.

The property, a four-bedroom detached home, is located within the Boyles Court development in Dark Lane, Great Warley.

Bairstow Eves describes the eight-sided home as "simply stunning" and points out its position at the front of the development which allows for its own gated privacy.

Its distinctive shape means that the kitchen and dining area has five exterior walls and two interior - meaning plenty of space to hang art or shelves.

Upstairs, the four bedrooms each have their own character and personality - simply because they are all different shapes - while the landing is a focal point in the middle.

Although the main part of the house is an octagon, it has its own square double garage so that cars can fit in normally.

Beyond its octagonal shape, the property has several other distinguishing features.

A vaulted ceiling welcomes visitors into the hallway, whilst a family dining room boasts doors onto a raised terrace offering views of the wrap-around garden.

In the kitchen there is also a breakfast island - rectangular in shape - making for an open-plan entertaining area.

British-made Imperial sanitary ware and Hansgrohe taps and showers are in the bath and shower rooms.

The 16-acre grounds set around a winding entrance drive hark back to the heritage and grandeur of the original estate.
