Full description

An historic village home in central location with driveway parking and close to all amenities.

Coming to the market for only the second time in 50 years, this glorious five-bedroom semi-detached home, on the cusp of Victorian and Edwardian, was formerly used as a doctor's practice. In addition to the potential to have two home offices, it offers a wealth of period features, high ceilings, stripped floors and considerable-sized rooms, and enjoys stunning southerly views directly onto protected open fields and the South Downs National Park.

Internally, the spacious and light entrance hall boasts original flooring and stripped pine doors leading off to a sitting room, a music room with brick fireplace and large bay windows with doors overlooking a private southerly garden. Also on the ground floor is the kitchen, the dining room with original Victorian floor tiles, a downstairs toilet and a snug/office.

There is a driveway for one car, an integral garage and substantial workshop area, which could be used for a variety of purposes.

On the first floor there are five bedrooms, all with stripped pine doors, with the smaller fifth bedroom having the option to becoming an en suite to bedroom one or, as it is currently, used as a second office. The principal bedroom has a large bay window to the rear overlooking the South Downs National Park. There is also an attractive family bathroom with tiled walls, a stripped floor, a large separate shower and roll top bath.

Situation

From the sitting room, the rear French windows lead out onto a beautifully mature and wild landscaped garden with a desirable Victorian tiled patio area. This secluded suntrap is perfect for al fresco dining or a chilled glass of wine on a warm summer's evening. There is also a wine cellar accessed from here. The raised lawn, surrounded by paving and mature shrubs and trees, leads to an original flint-walled woodshed, whilst a whimsical gate takes you directly onto stunning open fields and the National Park.

Storrington is a thriving village with many amenities including a Waitrose store, Costa Coffee, Barclays and HSBC banks and a range of independent shops and eateries. Leisure facilities can be found at the local Chanctonbury Leisure Centre, Pulborough Rugby Club, West Sussex Golf Club, and local tennis and lawn bowls and many more activities. Larger shopping centres of Worthing, Horsham and Chichester are all no more than a 30 minute drive away and Pulborough Station 4 miles to the west provides access to London Victoria and the South Coast.

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.
