The Walled Garden is a very spacious detached bungalow situated within a private, former walled garden located in a wonderfully peaceful and rural setting. Built in approximately 1987 by a local builder, it has been in the same family ownership since then and includes brick elevations, sealed unit double glazed windows and doors, all under a pitched roof covered in clay tiles. The well-proportioned accommodation includes an entrance hall, a dining room that opens into the good sized sitting room with working fireplace, a sunroom, and a large kitchen/breakfast room and utility room. The main bedroom has an en suite bathroom and there are 3 further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. In addition is an attached double garage.

The property is approached from Burton Park Road over a shared private drive, which leads into a gravel entrance drive and provides parking for several cars. The house sits to one corner of the former walled garden which extends to about 0.3 of an acre providing a good deal of privacy and seclusion. Much of the garden is laid to lawn and is very well stocked with a wide variety of flowering plants, shrubs and trees, as well as 2 ornamental ponds. The garden has been lovingly maintained by the owners for many years.

The Walled Garden forms part of the Burton Hill Estate with its Grade II listed main house, built in the 1840's, designed by the Gothic revival architect, Augustus Pugin, best known for his work on The Palace of Westminster. The house was bequeathed to the Society of Jesus as a convalescent home for monks, remaining in their ownership until 1978 when the Burton Hill Estate was sold in its entirety.

The Walled Garden is located in a beautiful rural setting on a country lane just 3 miles south of Petworth and is within the South Downs National Park. There are many walking opportunities along local footpaths and the nearest public house is The Badgers at Coultershaw Bridge. Petworth is a picturesque and historic old market town dominated by Petworth House and park and has an excellent range of quality independent and specialist shops, various cafes, pubs, restaurants and other amenities including a primary school, three churches, various sporting facilities and a range of vibrant societies including the annual Petworth music and literary festivals. Midhurst (6 miles) has an excellent range of shops as well as the world renowned Cowdray Park Polo Ground and the Cowdray Golf Club. Chichester (15 miles) provides a broader choice with all the major supermarkets and its well renowned Festival Theatre. In addition, there is horseracing, golf and lots for the motor enthusiast at the famous Goodwood Estate (13 miles). The area provides a good choice of state and independent schools for both boys and girls. Pulborough mainline station (4 miles) provides a service to Gatwick, London Bridge and Victoria (70 mins) and along the coast. Haslemere Station (10 miles) has a fast service to Waterloo (57 mins).

From Petworth, take the A285 south towards Chichester. After crossing a narrow bridge and then passing The Badgers pub on the left, the road rises. Take the next left into Burton Park Road and after about 0.4 miles look out for the sign for Burton Hill on the left. Turn into the drive and fork to the left, you will find The Walled Garden a short distance on the right-hand side.
