At the foot of the south downs lies Wild Brookes, a detached house with lovely well-proportioned accommodation spread over two floors. The house is in lovely condition but still offers the chance to further enhance the accommodation to suit your own personal tastes.

Particular features within Wild Brookes include a sitting room with wood burning stove and double doors leading to a conservatory. A separate dining room also features double doors to the garden. With a study, cloakroom and a kitchen breakfast room that includes an AGA the ground floor accommodation is ideal for family living. On the first floor the naturally lit landing leads to the four bedrooms with en-suite shower room to the second bedroom and a refitted family bathroom serving the remaining two. The principle bedroom suite is a generous space providing an en-suite shower room, dressing area with wardrobes and a bedroom with a Juliette balcony looking out over the gardens.

Approached by a large gravel driveway, Wild Brookes enjoys a generous garden plot with the majority of the garden to the south side of the house. Mainly laid to lawn there is plenty of scope for further cultivation of this outdoor space.

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.
