Country and Metropolitan Homes has seen a high level of demand for a family home at its development.
The Garrison comprises 465 homes in the coastal town of Shoeburyness just outside the resort of Southend, Essex.
The development comprises beach front apartments and three, four and five bedroom detached and semi-detached homes.
The home that has seen an unprecedented number of enquiries from buyers is the Horsfield, a five bedroom detached home with a guide price of £550,000 - £600,000. It is the last of only two houses of this design to be built at the development.
The Horsfield's grand double fronted facade gives it instant kerb appeal. The property is arranged over three floors with a garage. Upon entering the property, buyers are greeted with a hallway with a formal dining room to one side and a family room with an open plan designer kitchen to the other.
To the first floor, there is a formal living room leading out onto a balcony with views across the Thames Estuary. This outdoor space can also be accessed from a guest bedroom that comes complete with its own ensuite. Another guest bedroom and smaller bedroom/study can be found on the first floor along with a family bathroom.
The second floor of the property boasts a master bedroom with dressing area and ensuite. The room leads onto a south facing balcony. A final double bedroom completes the home.
Country and Metropolitan Homes' sales director, Elaine Dufaur, said: "We have been inundated with enquiries for this, the very last Horsfield housetype to be built at The Garrison. It is a truly exceptional home and its clear why so many want to grab their final chance to own it.
"Demand has been so high we feel that opening the sale of this home to sealed bids is the fairest way to sell the property."
A former British military barracks until the mid-1980s, The Garrison boasts buildings that date back to the Napoleonic era. The development is brimming with original features and set within 180 acres of conservation parkland, a cricket green, nature reserve and protected wetlands.
The character of the Barracks, with its unique architecture and layout, remains largely as originally designed, with well-spaced buildings, wide tree-lined roads, open spaces and sea views.
