Full description

Approached by a private drive with impressive double opening electric gates, the property is situated off a pretty private lane within the village.

Built in 2005 by local builders the house follows a traditional double fronted design with striking brick faced elevations having four distinctive bays to the front under a pitched roof enhanced by two central dormers. Adjacent and forming part of a front courtyard is the detached triple garage again with two roof dormers to the rooms over.

With approximately 3,800 sq ft of internal floor space (excluding the garage) the house offers generous and well proportioned rooms enhanced by an impressive oak floored reception hall. From here, the principal reception rooms are accessed. A particular highlight is the hand built kitchen installed in 2017 with attractive granite tops and a Falcon range. The rooms facing the rear of the property all benefit from direct access to the garden via French doors. A more informal 'snug / TV room' sits adjacent to the kitchen.

Upstairs the five bedrooms are all en-suite and all with built-in wardrobes, the principal suite is particularly impressive with an open and spacious feel.

Situation

An exceptional and individual house in a delightful setting with gardens of just under one acre.

Outside, the property is well screened on all sides being on slightly elevated level ground with light wooded surroundings synonymous with West Chiltington. To the front is the block paved forecourt providing access to the detached triple garage. An internal staircase accesses two rooms over and a WC ideal for home office purposes.

To the rear a large paved terrace runs the full width of the house. There is a sizeable lawn with an attractively created pond, rockery and water feature along with well chosen seating areas and pathways, including a superb 'artists' studio / garden office (with WC).

In all the whole plot extends to 0.91 of an acre and is a perfect complement to this most impressive home. The gardens enjoy full privacy, surrounded by mature hedges and trees.

Location

The house occupies a private and quiet setting at the foot of the South Downs with beautiful walks directly from the front door. A well-stocked village store / Post office is within easy walking distance along with a local public house. For more amenities, the nearby centres of Storrington and Pulborough provide a wider range of shops, including Waitrose and Tesco's, modern medical centres and excellent veterinary clinics. Pulborough provides direct train services to London Victoria and the South Coast. The area also boasts a wide range of sports and recreational activities. Gatwick Airport is accessed within a 40 minute drive.

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.
