Full description

Rose Cottage was built around forty years ago and has brick elevations. To the side there is driveway parking and a detached double garage with superb office space above. Behind the garage is a generous space ideal as a vegetable plot.

The bungalow itself is a wonderful space for somebody to put their stamp on and make it their own. The sitting room is a lovely large room with wood burner and conservatory off, which also have access to the garden. The kitchen is fitted with a range of cupboards and opens to the dining room which has French doors to the garden. There is a small utility room with loft access to the large rooms above which could be adapted subject to planning consents.

The bedroom wing of the property has three double bedrooms, bedroom one having a range of fitted cupboards and an en-suite bathroom and the others have access to the family bathroom.

The formal garden has a lovely variety of plants and shrubs and being west facing means it is lovely and sunny afternoon and evening.


West Chilitington is an attractive and thriving village and has so much on offer, a busy village hall, tennis club, croquet club, cricket club, a post office and local shop in the old village along with the historic St Mary's Church which dates back to the 12th Century and also the village junior school, along with another parade of shops offering a village store and post office, butchers, hairdressers and beauty salon. The surrounding villages of Pulborough and Storrington offer various supermarkets and a range of independent shops. There are numerous walks near the local vineyards and onto various watering holes and an abundance of public footpaths. Rail links to London Victoria and London Bridge and the South Coast are in the neighbouring village of Pulborough.

The area around provides a wide range of sporting and recreational facilities with West Sussex Golf Club and other golf clubs further afield at Cowdray Park and Goodwood. Of special note is the RSPB nature reserve at Wiggonholt Brooks. The area has rugby, bowls and cricket clubs, and there are leisure centres at Storrington and Billingshurst. There is gliding at nearby Parham, theatres at Chichester, Horsham and Worthing and sailing centres all along the 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 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.
