Full description

Situated in a wonderful plot this deceptively spacious family home offers highly flexible accommodation throughout. The total overall usable space approaches 4,000 sqft and is divided between the main house and outbuildings which features a fully serviced studio above the double garage and carport (currently enclosed and used as a workshop).

On the ground floor of the main house is a spacious entrance hallway with doors leading to all rooms along with a hardwood staircase that ascends to the first floor. The triple aspect kitchen / family room features a bespoke modern kitchen with light granite work tops and a multi-fuel burner. The sitting room enjoys a lovely view over the rear grounds. There are two further double bedrooms, both with wardrobes as well as a bathroom incorporating a corner spa bath and shower and a separate cloakroom with WC and basin. The first floor provides a fine gallery landing with large storage cupboards and access to a fully boarded loft. There are three excellent sized bedrooms with the master bedroom offering an en-suite shower room and all bedrooms have access to boarded eaves storage, with two bedrooms also benefiting from wardrobes. A family bathroom completes the accommodation.

The double garage is fitted with electric roller doors adjacent to the workshop and above this is the studio. Subject to the usual planning consents, this building could be officially converted into a fully self-contained annexe.

Situation

An individual detached home with fully serviced separate studio, set in grounds of around two acres comprising gardens and grassland.

Overall the grounds, of approximately two acres in total, feature a large shingle driveway, a heated outdoor swimming pool with pool house, a beautiful paved terrace adjacent to the rear of the main house and a substantial pond.

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.
