An historic and very beautiful Grade II listed house of great character which has been the subject of a remarkable renovation. With great attention to detail, and sympathetic to its 16th, 7th and 18th century origins, it is beautifully restored with an exemplary sense of style to provide a charming and very comfortable family home.
The accommodation flows well with interconnecting living rooms, and a superbly fitted kitchen/breakfast room with utility room on the ground floor; and 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms on the first floor. The master bedroom is a large and luxurious suite with ensuite bathroom and a dressing room on the second floor.
Within the house there is a self-contained annexe. Modern amenities – such as underfloor heating and LED lighting – have been installed whilst retaining the period charm of this special home.
In addition, a detached stone barn is converted to provide a bright and spacious flexible workshop, office or studio space. There is also a large double garage and timber outbuildings.
Storrington is located at the foot of The South Downs, within the National Park and the house itself sits in secluded gardens within only a few minutes walk of the village centre.
The village offers everyday shopping needs, including banks, cafes, speciality shops, and a Waitrose supermarket. For more comprehensive shopping and recreation, the historic market town of Horsham is about 15 miles.
Rail connections to London are via nearby Pulborough and Billingshurst, with direct services to London Victoria in about 1 hour 17 minutes, and 1 hour 12 minutes respectively. The A24 is nearby and links with national motorways and gives quick access to both Gatwick and Heathrow airports.
There are excellent schools in the area including Christ's Hospital, Dorset House, Lancing College, Seaford College, and Windlesham House School.
Sports enthusiasts can enjoy golf, and horse and motor racing at Goodwood, racing at Fontwell, and show jumping at Hickstead, polo at Cowdray Park and sailing at Chichester, Bosham, and Itchenor.
The coast has some excellent beaches, West Wittering in particular and The South Downs offer miles of footpaths and bridleways for walking, cycling and riding through some of the county's most spectacular and scenic countryside.
The house is approached through secure gates and the drive provides a substantial parking and turning area in front of the house. The garden landscaping is a very special feature, which enhances the wonderfully secluded and private setting to both front and back of the house. A real sun-trap to the rear, there are 2 paved terraces with oak and CorTen steel retaining walls and gravel pathways through planted flower beds. These lead to rising brick step up to a large level lawn secluded by beech hedges and established trees. Other areas of the garden have been designed for a children's play area and there is a well-stocked, formal kitchen garden with raised beds, fruit cages and a greenhouse. In all the property extends to 0.75 of an acre.
