The views from the property are impressive on all compass points. Foxbury, with 33 acres of spectacular Downland was situated to enjoy privacy, peace and quiet and was designed to accommodate family or staff through the use of an adjoining cottage/annexe. Foxbury is a detached house, built of stone and brick under a thatch roof. The main four bedroom house is linked to a two bedroom cottage by its roof, but separated by a gate on the ground floor that leads to the rear garden. The current owners have completed a total renovation of the main house and cottage, including all new plumbing, electrics and plasterwork as well as new wood and stone floors, underfloor heating, and all new windows and doors. A large four bay garage sits to the side of the house and includes a substantial studio with kitchenette, living room, bedroom and en suite shower room above. The Main House A sweeping gravel drive beyond new wooden electric gates leads to Foxbury. The drive lies between gorgeous herbaceous borders and gardens mainly laid to lawn. To the south, a number of mature specimen trees create a serene parkland setting with a spectacular South Downs backdrop. The front door opens to an entrance hall which leads to a generous triple aspect drawing room with a large open fireplace, and a central dining room. There is underfloor heating throughout the ground floor. The drawing room leads to a beautifully landscaped terrace that lies under an arbor of wisteria and Star Jasmine with views to a small landscaped pond. The dining room leads to the new large kitchen/breakfast room, with fantastic views of the South Downs and features a high spec, bespoke Tom Howley kitchen and a wide range of appliances including two dishwashers and custom cabinetry. Adjoining the kitchen, with its own back door, is a large utility room suitable for an outdoor lifestyle and bustling family. The kitchen can also be accessed via French doors that also lead to a large terraced dining courtyard, enclosed by the annexe and extensive landscaping. On the first floor there is a master bedroom with two dressing rooms, balcony and bathroom en suite with a walk-in shower. There are three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom also with a walk-in shower and bath. The bathrooms feature high-end fittings and Villeroy & Boch sanitary ware. The Cottage Attached to the main house is a newly renovated additional two bedroom cottage. The cottage comprises two generous reception areas, kitchen, utility room and two double bedrooms both with fitted wardrobes and storage. They both have en suite bathrooms with walk-in showers. It could provide for additional accommodation or income if let out. The Studio At the end of the gravelled drive and to the east of the house is a three open bay car port with a fourth garage, which has secure doors and is fully alarmed. To the rear of the car port is an insulated workshop with gardener's WC. Behind the car port, and not in sight of the main house, is a tractor bay and lockable tractor store. Stairs lead up the side of the garage to the front of the studio where there is a decked terrace. The generous open plan room, currently used as a gym, benefits from high, vaulted ceilings and air conditioning and has a kitchenette to one end and a door to the other leading off to a light and airy room with shower room en suite. Gardens and Grounds Foxbury is situated off a quiet country lane. The approach via electric gates leads to large lawned garden areas interspersed with mature specimen trees which offer privacy and seclusion. There would be ample space for a tennis court or pool, or both. There are uninterrupted views in every direction - all telephone and electric cables have been buried to enhance the pristine countryside outlook. Equestrian The equine facilities are situated adjacent to the house but in their own enclosure with separate electric gates, so they are close and convenient but discrete enough not to dominate the beautiful western sunset views and landscape visible from the main residence. The sand school and stables are complimented by adjacent pasture for grazing. The land also extends to woodland and of note is a lovely strip of land on elevated ground with stunning views to the South Downs that run off to East of Amberley. The Location Foxbury is situated in the hamlet of West Burton within the South Downs National Park. The village of Bury, with its Post Office, church and public house is about ½ a mile away, whilst Sutton village with the renowned White Horse Inn and the charming hamlet of Bignor are also nearby. The towns of Pulborough, Arundel and Petworth are about six miles away and provide for most everyday needs. Guildford in Surrey and the Cathedral city of Chichester, both with renowned Theatres, are within easy reach and have more extensive shopping and leisure facilities. The A3 provides fast access to London, the motorway network, Gatwick, Heathrow and Southampton airports. The mainline station at Pulborough also provides a fast service to London Victoria and London Bridge. The surrounding area has much to offer with polo at Cowdray Park, racing at Goodwood and Fontwell, golf at Cowdray Park, Goodwood, Pulborough and Liphook, motor racing at the Goodwood circuit and sailing out of Chichester Harbour and other centres along the South Coast. There are many footpaths and bridleways in the area for walking and riding.
