Full description

Tucked away down a gated private access lane, well away from main roads, lies this charming detached cottage. Having been fully renovated by the current owners Coombewick Farm is a rare opportunity to acquire a character property with a good size plot ideal for equestrian buyers as well as those searching for a property with space and land.

Currently laid out as a two bedroom property both with en-suite facilities it would be easy to adapt the layout to provide further bedroom space if desired.

On the ground floor a large principle bedroom includes an en-suite with a cosy lounge with wood burning stove and beamed ceiling providing a lovely snug sitting area. The kitchen and dining room alongside are a particular feature of the cottage. Fitted with a high quality German Nobilia kitchen features include intelligent storage solutions, granite work surfaces, integral appliances, Neff oven and combination microwave and a concealed Smeg rise and fall extractor adjacent to the Neff induction hob. A utility and cloak room completes the ground floor accommodation with most rooms enjoying a double aspect and with discreet but attractive ceiling beams.

Stairs lead to the first floor which is currently laid out to provide an open plan study and sitting area which could be reconfigured to create further bedroom accommodation to sit alongside the existing second bedroom and shower room.

Situation

A fully modernised detached farm cottage with equestrian facilities in a glorious rural setting.

Approached through a coded entry security gate and located down a private lane the property is secluded but not remote and provides a secure and rural place to live. A large paved front apron provides ample parking and turning space and is adjacent to the oak car barn. At the rear of the house a paved terrace adjoining the cottage takes full advantage of the southerly aspect and enjoys a view across the formal gardens and to the paddocks allowing owners to see and enjoy their animals.

The path continues from the terrace passing the workshop and through a gate into the stable yard with a good quality timber two bay stable block with tack room and hay store together with full electrical supply for light, power and fencing with gated vehicle access to the yard ideal for extra vehicles or a trailer. A gate opens to the smaller of the two paddocks with another gated access into the larger with the plot measuring in total just under 1.25 acres. With the majority of the plot facing south it’s a perfect setting for those who love the outdoors and their gardens, and with two paddocks perfect for those with horses or animals.

Surrounded by woods and farmland Coombewick Farm is located in a lovely rural setting yet within easy access of the A24 giving excellent main road routes to the south and to Horsham and Gatwick to the north. Extensive shopping, banking and leisure facilities can be found in Horsham less than 10 miles away which also provides the nearest mainline railway station serving London Victoria. The airport and commercial hub of Gatwick is approximately 25 miles away whilst to the south Brighton is a similar distance.

From the Washington roundabout proceed north on the A24 and continue for approximately 3 miles. Having passed the exit for Ashington, opposite the turning signposted to Wincaves Farm and just before the speed camera sign take the slip road to the right crossing over the other carriageway into a small access road with a green metal farm gate. A member of staff will meet you at this gate to then escort you to the property which lies just under half a mile down the track.

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.
