This imposing 16th century house is occupying a prime corner position in Petworth, the South East's leading centre for antiques with over 30 antiques shops and art galleries in the town. The house, a Grade II listed building rich in historic connections is situated opposite the church and Petworth House stately home. It is within a short distance of National Trust parkland and open country. The building has been updated over recent years by the present owners whilst retaining many of its original features, including exposed timbers in the majority of rooms, impressive fireplaces and vaulted, beamed bedrooms to the top floor where views over the Town can be enjoyed. An early internal inspection is essential to appreciate the overall character, accommodation and presentation.

Petworth is a Medieval market town set within the pretty countryside and still holds on to its past with winding lanes and historical buildings. One such famous building is Petworth House, a 17th Century mansion set within stunning and beautiful Deer Parks designed by Capability Brown and lies just north of the South Downs within the South Downs National Park. It has a good range of shops for everyday needs, three churches, tennis court, bowling green, cricket and football pitches. Golf is at Goodwood, Cowdray and an 18 hole course two miles north of Petworth.

There are excellent independent schools close by; Conifers at Midhurst is for children up to 11 years, Seaford College and Prep School 3 miles away. Pulborough mainline station (serving the coast, Gatwick and Victoria and London Bridge 70 minutes) is 4 miles and Haslemere station (Waterloo 60 minutes) is 10 miles away.
