The main reception has a large fireplace and exposed ceiling beams and leads through to a sunroom with outstanding downland views out across the garden and beyond, and French windows opening onto
the terrace. A snug/family room features an
attractive bay window and exposed ceiling beams. A useful study opens onto the terrace through French windows and also enjoys the views. As one might expect, the country house 'cook's' kitchen is the hub of the house and has polished granite work surfaces, an island and plenty of space for dining, as well as a two-oven oil-fired Aga with additional two
electric oven/gas hob Aga pod. A utility room next to the kitchen completes the ground floor. Upstairs there is an abundance of flexible accommodation with two bathrooms and six bedrooms, the master of which enjoys its own sun room and spectacular views.

Sutton is home to the popular White Horse Public House, a church, village hall and bowling green, with the nearest shopping facilities being in the town of Petworth, approximately 4.8 miles to the north. Nearby Bignor is renowned for its Roman Villa which contains some of the finest and best preserved Roman mosaics in England.

Further places of interest in the local area are the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum, West Dean Gardens, Fishbourne Roman Palace, and the historic houses of Arundel Castle, Stansted Park, Petworth, Goodwood and Uppark. Contemporary sculpture is exhibited in the grounds of the Cass Sculpture Foundation near Goodwood. This is an area renowned for its variety of sporting activities which include events for motoring enthusiasts, golf and flying at Goodwood, horseracing at Goodwood and
Fontwell, as well as bathing at the Blue Flag sandy beach at West Wittering, and sailing off the coast and on Chichester Harbour. Walking and riding over the many miles of foot and bridle paths in the South Downs National Park and along the coastline are among the many reasons this is such a highly desirable area.
