Hill View is a spacious detached house, which is located in a spectacular countryside area outside the sought after village of Storrington in West Sussex. The property stands within its own grounds providing a permanence of quietness and privacy.
The southern boundary of the property is also the boundary of the South Downs National Park, and thus it is endowed with the most picturesque scenery from what is described as the SDNP's core area. This lovely property is surrounded by the most natural and beautiful landscape all year long; the rolling countryside and seasonal changing scenery is remarkable for its beauty and the environment it provides. A GP Surgery, three churches and all the facilities of the village are all within quick and easy reach. The position of the property in the countryside, and the easy reach of the village is quite unique. Peace and quietness properly describes this property's surroundings.
A feature of the property is the wildlife. Apart from the many kinds of garden birds, which live in the approximately 350 metres of ancient hedges, there are resident pheasants, French partridges, kestrels, buzzards and sparrow hawks. Often red kites visit the property and its surroundings. After the demolition of the old stable block, a 42 year resident barn owl family has been successfully moved 150 metres away.
The first floor accommodation of the detached house comprises a generous landing area leading to four bedrooms, a large family bathroom, with separate shower, and there is an en-suite bathroom off the main bedroom that also contains a separate shower. Downstairs there is a sizeable lounge, and a large dining room, the latter from which double French doors front onto a conservatory with southernly scenic views to the South Downs National Park. There are the same views from double French doors and a window in the lounge. There is a fully fitted kitchen, with an adjoining utility room. The study, with windows on two sides, provides an exceptionally pleasant and quiet area in which to work. There is a cloakroom leading from the main and well proportioned entrance hall. The roomy front porch offers protection for sitting under. There is a large detached double garage, with two synchronised electric doors. A large lean-to adjoins the garage. There is a huge amount of outside parking space at the property.
The land is just over one and half acres of land and completely open gardens overlooking the beautiful South Downs National Park. In both summer and winter, the whole property is a most natural sun trap, with the sun rising in the East and setting in the West, after travelling completely around the house and grounds.
