A detached three bedroom farmhouse set in approx. sixteen acres with a fantastic range of barns, stables and equestrian facilities, in a secluded location, surrounded by its own land
The property’s original name Hillside Fruit Farm betrays its origins, although the current owners have owned it for over thirty years and have used it primarily as a base for training racehorses. There is now no evidence of the original fruit farm and the property is ideally suited to equestrian use or hobby farming, smallholding etc.
The property is set down a long private drive, surrounded by its own land and there is ample scope to extend the house if required, subject to the usual planning permissions. There is existing planning permission to convert the garage/store to a residential annexe.
The property is surrounded by stunning rolling countryside, within the South Downs National Park and within less than a mile there is access onto a bridleway which leads to extensive hacking on the South Downs Way.
There are ranges of local shops and amenities in nearby Arundel and Pulborough and a fuller range of facilities in Chichester.

Just a quick thank you to you and your company for the help we received from you all. Every conversation with staff members was pleasant and caring. We will definitely recommend Rural Scene to others.
I really don’t know how to thank you for the last 2 months of your time you have been priceless and you are amazing at what you do and have helped to change my life 💝💝💝💝 Due to how amazing you clearly are we have so much trust and respect for you that we are going to be delighted to place our cottage on the market with Rural Scene once we have moved and we would recommend you without hesitation to anybody needing to sell a rural property x
We just wanted to pass on our enormous thanks for the hard work you and your company put into selling our property and helping with the purchase of this house. We also want to thank you for your unfailing support, encouragement and cheerfulness through what was, for us, a very stressful time
I just wanted to pass on my thanks for all your tremendous work during the sale of our property. It's been a bit of a rollercoaster at times but you did a great job in lining up the buyers for us. From the get-go I've felt we're in good hand with Rural Scene. Estate agents don't always get the best press but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone selling their smallholding.
I felt I must write to you both to express my gratitude for the work Abi Rhodes has done on the sale of M......... From the initial meeting she has demonstrated expert knowledge in our type of property that had just been lacking from other agents and filled us with confidence. Throughout the marketing and sale she has been thoroughly professional yet friendly in dealing with the 77 viewings we had to undertake to get to the final sale. Some of the people as we have neared the sale have frankly been rude and in some cases unpleasant and Abi has dealt with them all and shielded us from it completely. She has worked tirelessly to get us finally to completion. I would not hesitate in recommending your company to anyone looking to market the properties you work with.
