Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A charming and very comfortably appointed Victorian country house set in glorious gardens and grounds with a Lodge, extensive range of outbuildings, tennis court and swimming pool. Beautifully positioned and overlooking its own rural estate of approx 15.5 acres.

In a glorious Downland setting north of historic Arundel and south of Fittleworth and Petworth and offering all the charm and atmosphere of an elegant period family house - this is a fine country estate with wonderful rural views.

London approx 58 miles, Gatwick approx 33 miles and the coast approx 10 miles.  

Bury Gate House The main house lies towards the centre of the estate and enjoys splendid rural views to the front and rear over its own grounds.

A central entrance hall opens into an impressive front to back drawing room whilst across the hall are a sitting room, handsome dining room and kitchen/breakfast room with ancillary rooms adjoining.

The formal dining room is of good size and overlooks fields to the front. This leads into an elegant sitting room which might alternatively suit as a study.

The kitchen is well placed to the rear of the dining room and overlooks a splendid rose garden to the south. There is a spacious dining area, Aga, utility room, larder and wine cellar.

A rear side door leads out past a boiler room to a small courtyard with adjacent storage sheds (also useful as an ad hoc kennel).

The first floor provides to one side, a substantial principal bedroom suite with bathroom, dressing room and glorious rural views front and rear.

To the other side of the landing there are three further bedrooms and two bathrooms.

A landing door opens to stairs to the second floor with two further bedrooms, a family bathroom and a spacious walk-in attic room.  

Bury Gate Lodge The Lodge is situated near the outbuildings off a courtyard. It is accessed via a driveway which divides past a gate with a separate drive up to Bury Gate House.

There is a spacious living room with a conservatory extension, kitchen and two bedroom suites - one to either end of the property. 

Outbuildings Beyond Bury Gate House and conveniently set a short distance away through a farm gate is a hardstanding courtyard with surrounding outbuildings.

These include a three bay garage (40 x 17ft / 12.4 x 5.2m), a timber framed stable block with an open barn at one end and a smaller brick faced block.

Beyond the courtyard there is an enclosed barn

(44' x 29' / 14.2 x 8.8m ) leading to

2 adjacent open barns (44' x 14' (13 x 4.3m ) and 45' x 30' (14 x 9.3m ) providing considerable additional storage space.  

Facilities, Gardens and Grounds Bury Gate House is set back from the road (B2138) with Fittleworth village and Petworth to the north, Bury and Amberley villages and Arundel to the south.

The road is screened by mature trees and flanks the driveway entrance where a public footpath leads down part of the drive - behind a hedge approx 80ft (24m) from the house and on eastwards.

The drive separates with a gate opening to the main driveway up to the front of the house.

Well located on a small rise the house has a good degree of seclusion whilst enjoying fine rural views front and rear over its gardens and fields.

To one side is a heated swimming pool (35' x 14' / 10.7m x 4.3m ) mainly screened by closed fencing. Beyond, there is a tennis court.

The delightful main garden lies to the south with lawns interspersed with wonderful rose and shrub beds and specimen trees, beyond which lies a further field.

To the other side there is a fine, sheltered vegetable garden with greenhouses and shed.

Note : Behind the Lodge and outbuildings - beyond the curtilage of the property there is a detached brick faced cottage with garden privately owned by a third party - and not included in the sale. This property has a right of way down the drive to the main road.
