Stopples Barn is a most appealing, detached Grade II Listed barn, converted in 1994, with elevations of weatherboarding, brick and flint under a mostly thatched roof. The accommodation within the barn is arranged to provide a wonderful, open living area, which occupies the whole of the first floor. This area is divided into sections to include a kitchen, utility room, drawing room with woodburning stove and dining area. This arrangement ensures that the wonderful views over the Arun valley can be enjoyed to the best advantage from the living accommodation. A wealth of exposed timbers, wonderful vaulted ceiling and a section of full height windows give a sense of drama, along with the inevitable character and charm of a converted barn.
On the ground floor are five bedrooms and a study, as well as three good bathrooms, and it should be noted that the west wing of the house, an addition in 2002, could very easily, provide a separate annexe with independent access.
Stopples Barn occupies a wonderful position in the peaceful hamlet of Wepham in the South Downs National Park, some 3 miles from Arundel and just half a mile from the village of Burpham with its 11th century church and well-known public house, The George & Dragon. Arundel, home of the Dukes of Norfolk, is notable for its Castle, Cathedral, a good range of shopping facilities for everyday items, restaurants and antique shops. It is the home of the Wild Fowl and Wetland Trust, and has an open air swimming pool and public tennis courts. There is a mainline railway station at Arundel with services to London (Victoria) and Gatwick and the town is 3 miles north of the beaches of the south coast. Sailing may be enjoyed from the marina at Littlehampton or further to the west at Chichester Harbour. Chichester offers a wider range of shopping facilities, in addition to the renowned Festival Theatre and Goodwood hosts horseracing events and those for motoring enthusiasts and there are many miles of foot and bridle paths on the South Downs.
Outside, the property is approached via a private road (servicing several houses, but within the ownership of Stopples Barn) with some parking to the front of the property and further along, a gated entrance behind the property gives access to additional parking and a double garage. The garden is landscaped in terraces, to include a raised sun-terrace for outside dining, a lawned area, attractive shrubs and planting and a fish pool.
