Whether you're after a charming cottage or an estate to call your own, our list of the best country houses for sale in West Sussex makes tempting reading.
With a penchant for chandeliers, Morley Manor is as opulent as they come.
It is thought to have been built circa 1650 and named after parishioner John Morley, and has since been extended and renovated to create one of the grandest homes in West Sussex.
The sprawling property lends itself to keen riders, with a total of 12 Loddon stables, several oak stables and a horse solarium.
This impressive nine bed property spans three floors and has been exceptionally restored in recent years.
The kitchen/breakfast room was hand built by Chalon and features an impressive custom made six-oven Aga.
The gardens and grounds are something special, with a tennis court and pavilion, numerous outbuildings and stables, a charming walled garden and two bespoke greenhouses.
Decorated by a beautiful, established Wisteria, this postcard-perfect property is set in almost two acres of pristine gardens, including flower beds, mature apple and plum fruit trees and a wooden bridge that leads over a stream.
The interiors would benefit from some light remodelling to help brighten and lift the living spaces.
However, saying this, the cottage has a wealth of period features, including exposed ceiling beams, an inglenook fireplace and flagstone flooring which add character and charm.
This is not just a glorious, five-bedroom country house with 60 acres, a separate 2-bed cottage and fishing lake. Although it is all those things as well.
No, this property has something else to offer: a fully-functioning winery, as well as five dozen acres of vines growing on the slopes. It’s a lifestyle business par excellence.
It really is a bucolic dream: the lakes are full of fish, the remaining land stretches to 80 acres (including 22 acres of woodland) and it’s in an easily accessible spot convenient for London, Gatwick airport and the beautiful surrounding countryside.
A palatial home with sprawling grounds, a pool and great character in the heart of West Sussex.
Westbrook Hall, which is Grade II-listed, has wonderfully-proportioned rooms and a true country seat feel.
There’s a delightful pool looking over the lawns, while inside fun elements such as a bar and a games room make this feel like a perfect entertaining house.
Absolutely charming, attractively priced and with five bedrooms is this house in Pease Pottage, a few miles from Crawley.
The ivy-clad house is a real picture as you come into the gardens, and the original tiled floor in hallway and kitchen add to the charm as you enter.
The down-side — and the reason for the low price — is that the house is right next to the main A23 London to Brighton road. That’s handy for commuters, but clearly the buyer will need to be comfortable with the noise that it brings.
