Full description

Stotts Corner is believed to date back to approximately 1580 and retains many of its period features and is aptly named after the artist Edward Stott who lived in the cottage until his death in 1918.

The property is elevated from the road and approached by steps leading to a covered porch. The entrance hall has wooden floors providing access to the dining room, kitchen, cloakroom and a utility room. The kitchen is double height with a range of fitted cupboards, space for fridge and a lovely white three oven AGA creating a cosy heart of the home. The sitting room / dining room, which were once separate rooms, have a wood burning stove and an open fireplace. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a study / snug, again with an open fireplace.

To the first floor there are three double bedrooms with vaulted ceilings and a nicely presented bathroom.

There is gated access to the property from Church Street and Hog Lane and the gardens surround the property. From the kitchen there are French doors to a secluded patio area, which in the summer basks in sunlight all day long. There are lawned areas to the front and rear of the property and there is also a single garage accessed from Hog Lane. An internal inspection is recommended to appreciate the history of this delightful cottage.

Situation

A beautifully presented Grade II listed thatched cottage in the heart of the village.

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.
