Burnham Beeches Estate

This lavish estate was built for Alfred Nicholas (developer of Aspro) and his family. It exudes 1920s chic and you would not be surprised to see a Hispano Suza glide up the driveway with young men in boaters and young ladies with parasols. The Alfred Nicholas Gardens (see left) with their extensive water features are open to the public.
