Full description

Kithurst House is part of an award winning conversion of a magnificent historic building that was once a rectory, a Dominican convent and most recently a convent school. The property is one of six in the main house and is approached through impressive wrought iron electric gates to a wide front concourse along it's full width. Handsome stone elevations with ornate mullioned windows are matched by the equally stunning communal gardens and grounds with the property having its own private adjoining area.

Internally, tall ceilings and an abundance of oak panelling creates a traditional ambiance emphasised by the magnificent drawing room with its high beamed ceiling, fine fireplace and mullioned bay window. In all the accommodation extends to 3,170 sq ft with large well proportioned rooms in the country house style but on a manageable scale.

Concealed on the northern side is a purpose built block of garaging with light, power, car washing facilities and a utility/cloakroom. The gardens and grounds lie to the rear with large formal lawns, stone walling, a picturesque lily pond and grassy outer areas all interspersed by mature specimen trees. A tennis court and small garden cottage are for use by the residents.

Situation

A stunning individual home set in beautiful parkland garden and grounds of five acres.

An easy walk takes you past St Mary's church down picturesque Church Street to the High Street. The village has a range of local shops, a Waitrose store, new health centre, library as well as a wide range of sports and social clubs. Greyfriars Lane is a no-through lane that goes further up towards the Downs where there are footpaths to the top that give miles of downland walks along the South Downs Way.

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.
