Full description

Approached by wide front steps the property is one of three cottages likely to date from the early 19th Century, with smooth rendered elevations and sash windows. Internally the bright and airy accommodation comprises two reception rooms complimented by oak flooring and a dual sided wood burner between the rooms. The kitchen breakfast room was redesigned in 2014 with a range of custom fitted units and forms the focal point of the ground floor being 19ft in length with sky light windows and double opening glazed doors to the south facing garden with its terrace areas.

Upstairs a generous landing gives access to the two double bedrooms with a large bathroom and separate utility room for the washing machine and tumble dryer. The front bedroom has a walk in closet. At the end of the landing an open tread staircase gives access to a usable loft room having a distinctive circular window. There is also a further loft area accessed by a pull down ladder, boarded and housing the gas boiler and mega flow hot water cylinder.

Situation

A delightful late Georgian / early Regency cottage situated in the heart of this picturesque village.

From the double opening kitchen doors there is a patio area with bin shed. The pretty cottage garden is long being lawned with flower and shrub borders with additional timber stores, the bottom one having light and power where there is also a further patio at the far end of the garden to enjoy the views to the south and west.

Amberley is a highly desirable West Sussex village, which benefits from a local community shop, two pubs The Black Horse 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.
