The Old Thatch is a beautifully presented 16th Century thatched cottage and is approached through a five bar gate leading to the driveway and oak framed car barn with storage above and woodshed to side.
On entering the property there is a welcoming entrance hall with oak flooring. Leading off here is the kitchen which is beautifully and cleverly designed, there is an AIMS Aga as well as a two oven electric Aga, butlers sink, integrated washing machine and dishwasher and stable door with access to outside. From the hallway a doorway leads to the dining room with an original open range. A steps leads down to the drawing room with York stone fireplace and small study with fitted storage cupboards off. There is a lovely downstairs bathroom with separate shower. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a sitting room with open fire and French doors to the garden.
The first floor is access from three separate stair cases. The master suite is situated above the sitting room with stairs leading directly up to the bedroom, giving it a feeling of a luxury boutique hotel, with a range of fitted wardrobes and a lovely en-suite with separate power shower and roll top bath. Bedrooms two, four and five are accessed from the eastern staircase and bedroom three from the centre of the house.
A beautifully presented and extended Grade II listed thatched cottage set in grounds just under a third of an acre.
The gardens of the property are delightful and very secluded; from the entertaining patio area which faces south, to the east facing breakfast terrace and finally the west facing small patio, perfect for a sun downer or two. Alternatively relax in the summer house after a hard days work tending the beautifully stocked flower and shrub beds which provide colour and scents galore. At the front of the house there are two stables and a tack room currently used as a workshop / storage and the other deceptively converted to a bar, a perfect escape.
The property is situated between Storrington and Thakeham off the B2139, and is approached along a set-back part of the Storrington Road, servicing just three other properties. Although within the parish of Thakeham, the nearest facilities are in Storrington, around 1.5 miles away where there is a good range of local shops, including a Waitrose store, library, doctors surgery, dentists as well as a wide variety of sports and social clubs. Pulborough with its main line station and further supermarkets are approximately 5 miles away.

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.
