Situation: In the village street amongst a collection of character homes. There are shops, village hall, public houses, bus service, primary school and churches within walking distance. The surrounding countryside provides lovely walks including the river valley and the South Downs.
Approximate Distances: Steyning is about one and a half miles with further shops, health centre, swimming pool and leisure facilities. The coast at Shoreham-by-Sea is about four miles, where there are superstores including Marks & Spencer and Tesco on the edge of the town and main line railway station. Inland, Horsham, Crawley and Gatwick are easily reached as is the motorway system (A23/M23/M25).
The Property: Southdown House is an attractive village house with rendered and part-flint elevations under a slate roof. Outbuildings extend along the eastern boundary, linked to a double garage and workshop with self-contained annexe over. The footprint of the building contains a courtyard parking/garden area. The property was thoroughly renovated some 15 years ago and provides nicely proportioned accommodation with gas-fired central heating and double-glazed windows. The house is ideally suited to a family and there is commercial potential to generate income from the annexe, which would be equally suitable for a dependent relative.
