A wonderful family home in West Sussex with a gorgeous pool and idyllic countryside surroundings

Versatile living space, elegant period features and sublime private gardens meet at Loveders Farm, near the village of Nutbourne in West Sussex.

The property, currently on the market via Hamptons for a guide price of £1.7 million, sits in 1.3 acres of gardens and extends to 3734 sq ft of accommodation.
