Full description

Highwinds is offered to the market for the first time in forty years and is in one of the most stunning, elevated settings, with amazing views towards the South Downs. The entrance to the property is on a private lane through a five bar gate and the sweeping carriage driveway takes you up to the house.

On entering the property via the porch you are greeted by a light, open hallway which leads to the sitting room with picture windows, feature fireplace and French doors opening onto the side patio and garden. Through the sitting room is a perfectly sized study with a range of fitted units and shelves. Also leading off the hall is a cosy snug with fitted cupboards and a good sized dining room which has two sets of windows facing the Downs. The kitchen/breakfast room benefits from the sun from dawn till dusk and has a range of fitted units as well as a spacious utility/pantry. The ground floor is completed with a cloakroom and boot room as well as two storage cupboards under the stairs.

The first floor is accessed via a split staircase. At the rear there is a bedroom, cloakroom and bathroom. At the front the second bedroom takes full advantage of the views. The master bedroom has views of the South Downs with en-suite bathroom which can also be accessed by the dressing room. There is a connecting door to bedroom four, again with views of the Downs. The first floor is completed by a fifth bedroom and bathroom.

Situation

One of the most spectacular settings in the village with uninterrupted views of the South Downs, backing onto The Warren.

Outside

Outside, the sweeping driveway leads you to the double garage with electric up and over doors and storage above. The gardens are mainly to the front of the property, with a number of patio areas which take full advantage of the sun and views. The garden is laid to lawn and with a number of extensive rhododendron hedging and flower beds. There is also a shed, store, greenhouse and boiler room. The grounds extend to just under 1.5 acres and the property has simply one of the best views in the village. An internal viewing is advised to appreciate the stunning setting of this wonderful family home.

Location

The beauty of this location is the easy accessibility to the village and the close proximity of Sullington Warren which is ideal for dog walking. The property itself backs onto this National Trust land, guaranteeing a high degree of privacy. The village itself has a wide range of high street and independent shops. The nearest train station is in the adjoining village of Pulborough serving London Victoria and the south coast, with Gatwick 27 miles, the larger centre of Horsham 14 miles and the city of Chichester just 17 miles away (all approximate).

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.
