Full description

Converted by the present owner about 15 years ago, The Great Barn is an opportunity to own a little bit of history in a most beautiful setting.

With a lovely dining entrance hall and an open landing, the full height dual aspect windows both takes advantage of the light and is the centre of the home. The kitchen is fitted with a range of bespoke units and is ideal for an enthusiastic cook having two range cookers. In the property the accommodation is flexible with six large bedrooms over the two floors, all having en-suite facilities and a feature sitting room with large inglenook fireplace, plus two further additional receptions rooms.

Outside, there is ancillary accommodation with two one bedroom conversions with bathroom and sitting room. There is a car barn / workshop and ample parking, the gardens surround the property and help capture the sun at all times of the day. The plot extends to just over 0.75 acre but has the added advantage of being next to the stunning 700 year old Amberley Castle and far reaching views of the Wild Brooks. A viewing of this property in such a historic setting is essential to appreciate its full potential.

Situation

A unique country residence in tranquil setting overlooking Amberley Castle and the Wildbrooks.

Amberley is a highly desirable West Sussex village, which benefits from a local community shop, two pubs (The Black Horse is currently closed and undergoing refurbishment) and The Sportsman as well as Amberley First School. From here the South Downs Way is visible and there are many country walks to be enjoyed in the area as well as other outdoor pursuits. Amberley has the attraction of Amberley Castle, a privately owned hotel and restaurant renowned for its high quality. Finally, Amberley Station, approximately one mile away, is on the London Victoria line. For more extensive shopping, banking and leisure facilities, Storrington lies just four miles away and Chichester is 13 miles away.

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.
