Full description

Brookend House is a fine example of a village house which has been lovingly restored and improved over the last ten years. With many character features including original fireplaces and exposed stone work it truly is a wonderful piece of history to have.

On entering the property there is a light and open hallway with built in display cabinets. The dining room has a feature fireplace and French doors opening to the front with the original shutters on the sash windows and custom built floor to ceiling book shelves. At the rear of the house is the kitchen with central island and range of fitted units with granite worktops and space for dining table, and double doors to the garden. The ground floor is completed with a utility room and cloakroom which has access to the cellar.

On the first floor is the most delightful sitting room with gas fireplace and outlook over the lovely rear gardens. There are steps down to the study with cupboard housing the gas fired boiler. The master bedroom has fitted wardrobes and an en-suite cloakroom, and there is also a further double bedroom also with fitted wardrobes. There is also a bathroom with separate shower. On the second floor there is the third bedroom with cupboards and loft storage access.

Situation

A beautifully presented Georgian house, a short walk from the High Street with secluded landscaped and tranquil gardens.

The gardens at Brookend House are a particular delight and a labour of love. They have been landscaped by the current vendors over the last nine years and are divided into four distinct areas. From the kitchen, steps lead up to a terrace with water feature and pond and patio area, totally secluded and a perfect spot for your gin and tonic.

Leading on is a gravel garden, inspired by the renowned garden designer Beth Chatto and with a magnificent magnolia grandiflora. This then leads to a circular lawn with gravelled path around and then a yew hedge defining the working productive kitchen garden at the rear, with raised beds, an aluminium greenhouse and garden shed. There is also a large stone terrace with a brick built bbq.

A west facing border with roses and clematis runs the length of the garden alongside the original Georgian wall.

In summary this is a very special house which has been lovingly restored, in a lovely location just off the high street.

Storrington has a good range of shops almost immediately to hand, including a Waitrose supermarket, whilst Pulborough with its main line station to London/Victoria is five miles to the west. The larger centres of Horsham and Worthing are about fourteen and ten miles respectively. Most sporting and leisure activities will be found in the village, including squash, tennis and cricket clubs, together with the Chanctonbury Leisure Centre.

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.
