Elegant country house with highly distinctive gardens

This elegant country manor and tranquil garden sit so harmoniously within the landscape that one cannot exist without the other.

The house was lovingly rebuilt by its last owner, Ralph Dutton, after a catastrophic fire in 1960. Enjoy the beautifully proportioned rooms which house his exquisite collection of ceramics and art, each window offering undisturbed views to the tranquil countryside beyond.

Beautifully manicured lawns lead the eye down avenues of sculptured topiary, past borders full of the heady scent of roses, to breathtaking views across the South Downs.

Spring has sprung as the garden and cheerful blooms are popping up all over the lawns. Snow bunting crocus pepper the banks at the front of the house contrasting with striking formal borders full of vivid tulips. Daffodils fill the orchard providing an early source of food to the honey bees. Don’t miss the tranquil magnolia garden and the delicate tree blossoms that fall as confetti on the east lawn.
