Dream homes – Stunning countryside views

Posted: August 21, 2017   •   Posted in: Properties   •   Tagged: , , , , ,


There are many things that are wonderful about living in the countryside. Fewer cars, less noise and lower pollution levels. More space. A sense of community. And beautiful, amazing, stunning countryside views.

Being mostly flat, East Anglia has an abundance of picturesque scenes. Wide, low lying fields are havens for wildlife, with the sight of combines working in the summer months being a thing of real beauty. People who live in the country are truly blessed.

Below we’ve compiled some of our favourite countryside views taken from our recently listed properties. If you’d like to own your own private countryside panorama please get in contact with the team at your local David Burr office.

For now though, pour yourself a glass of wine, take a few minutes to peruse the fabulous photographs below and enjoy some of Cambridgeshire, Suffolk, Norfolk and Essex’s most stunning countryside views…
