Full description

Stream Cottage is a perfect example of how when an old cottage dating back to 1811 has a modern extention it creates a perfect fusion of old and new. Set back from the road behind a brick wall with a gated driveway, garaging and parking for several vehicles.

On entering there is a lovely reception space which was originally two rooms but has been opened up to provide a large living space with wood burners at both ends of the room so it is adaptable to have either lounging or dining area. Following through the cottage to the kitchen with a range of high and low level cream units with wood work surfaces, butlers sink, intergrated fridge freezer and a breakfast area, off the kitchen is a useful utility area and ground floor cloakroom. To the rear of the property is a stunning modern extension with large sliding doors to the courtyard garden, velux windows and lantern roof, it is currently used as a studio but has the plumbing there so could become a stunning kitchen should you wish.

On the first floor the spacious landing has a lovely arched window and window seat with stunning views to the South Downs. There are two double bedrooms and a generous single bedroom, there is a family bathroom and en-suite shower room.

Situation

A pretty detached cottage close to amenities, and updated and extended to provide a wonderful family home.

Outside

The rear garden is central to the cottage with the extension wrapping round it to create a private paved and grassed courtyard area making it a perfect sun trap. There are a number of raised beds stocked with some beautiful roses and various other plants and shrubs. The single garage at the front of the property is currently blocked up to provide an additional work space but easily converted back to a garage.

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 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.
