Full description

With parts of this beautiful Grade II listed cottage dating back to the 17th Century, this historic home provides a wealth of charm and character throughout.

The original part of the cottage is the thatched section and we understand the property gained its extra accommodation back in the 1930's, where it was greatly enlarged under a more traditional tiled roof creating a visually memorable house of two halves. The ground floor comprises three reception rooms, the largest of which features a stunning Inglenook fireplace with wood burner and exposed beams. There is a downstairs bathroom, good sized farmhouse style kitchen with direct access to the garden and a single garage.

The property features two separate staircases which access the two sections of the first floor. One ascends to two of the bedrooms both with fitted storage and the other leads up to the main bedroom suite with fitted wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom with separate shower cubicle.

The grounds of the cottage are truly stunning and are extensive. There is a lovely patio terrace area adjacent to the rear of the property, with a raised pond and a large area of lawn, surrounded by mature shrub borders. The front of the property features an old ivy-clad wall with well kept flower beds and off-street parking for two cars and access to the garage.



Positioned within the South Downs National Park, the small village of Clapham is mainly centred around one no-through-road known as, The Street, which contains most of the village's housing and amenities. Clapham and Patching C of E Primary School is located a short walk from the property as well as a 12th Century village church and a small community shop and cafe as well as a Village Hall. The village itself is conveniently positioned for the A27 providing easy access to the South Coast with nearby major amenities of Worthing and Littlehampton within a short distance by car.

Why live in Storrington?

This picture-perfect village lies at the foot of the South Downs National Park, halfway along the South Downs Way. Properties here include bungalows, family homes and the famous Wells cottages that were individually designed by the architect Reginald Fairfax Wells in the 1920s to look and feel like 17th century buildings with thatched roofs, small windows and whitewashed exteriors.

Many of the homes in Storrington have wonderful views across rolling countryside and a conservation area just off the bustling high street ensures Storrington will remain as beautiful as it is today for generations to come.

There are lots of specialist shops in the town and convenient amenities such as the large recreational ground with its football and cricket pitches, the Chanctonbury Sport and Leisure Centre and an abundance of community groups offering classes in all sorts of interesting activities from ballroom dancing to photography. For a spot of culture, visit the Parham House and Gardens or the local Storrington and District Museum and for outdoor pursuits, take time to explore the natural beauty of the South Downs on foot, bike or horseback or, for a truly spectacular experience, take to the air in a glider.

Our local schools belong to a cluster group called STARS (Storrington Area Rural Schools) and, between them, offer a choice of paths from Reception through to Year 13. Steyning Grammar School is included in the list of STARS and is a popular choice as it’s non-selective and has its own Sixth Form.

Storrington is well connected too; the nearest train station is in the neighbouring village of Pulborough. The five-mile journey only takes 10 minutes by car or you can take a bus; the bus timetable is synced with the train timetable to make life even easier for local commuters.
