About this property

A charming extended period house set in approximately 1.85 acres of gardens located down a private lane in a stunning rural location

Having been in the same ownership for almost 40 years, Cooks Copse is a charming classic timber frame period house which has been extended buy the current owners and set in a most stunning rural location within the South Downs National Park. The property boasts five reception rooms with many period features in evidence such as wall and ceiling timber and a fine inglenook fireplace to the dining room with the original bread oven. The well appointed fitted kitchen/breakfast room benefits from an Aga with a separate laundry room off the hallway. To the first floor are 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms (2 being ensuite).

To the outside is a sympathetically constructed barn style ancillary building with planning permission for a gym, workshop and store though currently configured as a generous 2 bedroom annexe with bathroom, fitted kitchen and sitting room having doors leading to the garden and a large picture window offering quite lovely views over the surrounding countryside.

Outside
Cooks Copse is set in a stunning rural location off a private drive and within the South Down National Park. The sweeping drive leads to the house, large ancillary barn style building and open bay oak garage and also gives some lovely views over the surrounding countryside. From the rear of the house a wooden terrace area extends off the sitting room being ideal for ‘alfresco’ dining during the summer months. Beyond this area the garden is predominantly laid to lawn though interspersed with shrubs and trees. Towards the back of the garden is a feature well and the grounds back onto open farmland with far reaching views of the South Downs. Adjoining the garden is a pony paddock enclosed by hedging and post and rail fencing. Behind the large barn style ancillary building is a further area of lawn that extends to a vegetable garden with 4 large raised beds, a poly tunnel and large garden store/shed. These delightful grounds and gardens offer an extremely private and tranquil environment and extend to approximately 1.85 acres.

Situation
West Burton is one of a number of hamlets and villages that are surrounded by countryside that is among the most beautiful in Sussex and forms part of the South Downs National Park and located south of Petworth and Fittleworth. The close village of Bury boasts a pub, church, primary school and private prep school. Good shopping facilities are available in nearby Petworth and Pulbourough (having both Tesco and Sainsburys), and the cathedral city of Chichester. Pulborough has a mainline railway station offering fast and regular services to London, Gatwick and the coast. There are many fine walks to be enjoyed within this area including the well known South Downs Way which follows the old routes and droveways along the chalk escarpment and ridges for some 160 kilometres.

Communication links are excellent, with the A29 and A24 providing access to the M25 and beyond to the national motorway network, Heathrow and Gatwick airports and the south coast.

Notable schools in the area include Cranleigh, Brighton College, Hurstpierpoint College, Lancing College, Seaford College, Christ's Hospital, Washington House, Windlesham House, Dorset House Boys School, and Westbourne House.
