    This wonderful apartment has fantastic proportions, high ceilings, large windows and I consider the views to be truly outstanding with south and west facing views reaching out some distance and on to dramatic and ever changing aspects over the lake.

The magnificent mansion, Burton House, stands regally within the lee of the Downs. The mansion was built by John Biddulph in 1828 and is Grade I listed. The Courtaulds were largely responsible for remodelling the grounds with the gardens including terraces, rose beds and the Jekyl-Lutyens style pergola continuing to form an important feature of the Park. Within the grounds is a beautiful 11th century church. There is a village shop and two excellent village pubs in the village of Duncton and the nearby market town of Petworth is around 4 miles away and offers an extensive range of amenities including a local supermarket, doctors surgery, pharmacy, two pubs and a diverse range of shops.
