Location

At the foot of the South Downs, the thriving village of Storrington is set in beautiful Sussex countryside with wonderful walks to the South Downs nearby. Within a pleasant walk of about 0.75 mile, the village centre has good local shops and traders for everyday needs, plus a large Waitrose store and new Costa in Old Mill Square.

A 6am-10pm Tesco Express & petrol station is in Pulborough Road; and larger Tesco and Sainsbury's stores are in neighbouring Pulborough. Storrington also has a Post Office, Library, banks, take-aways & restaurants. There are good community amenities; and The Glebe Health Centre in Monastery Lane.

Leisure activities include 2 golf courses, Chanctonbury Leisure Centre & Gym (swimming at Steyning); and sailing from Chichester & Littlehampton harbours. There is gliding at Parham airfield, as well as mountain biking & horse riding locally. The renowned Festival of Speed & Revival motor sports take place at Goodwood.

Brighton, Chichester & Horsham, have the top High Street shopping names and host theatre productions, plus a variety of cultural events & exhibitions. Nearby is The Crown Inn & Restaurant, with its large garden.

2&3 Crown Cottages

The little hamlet of Cootham lies west of the village on the A283 towards Pulborough, close to countryside and Parham House & grounds (English Heritage).

Crown Cottages is a Listed Grade II building thought to date back some 300 years and as the name implies, two cottages were later combined to make this beautiful and very practical character home. Good ceiling heights, larger than expected rooms and a calming palette of colours and textures combine to make this welcoming and unique home.

A look inside is essential to appreciate the style and tranquil feel of the cottage, whilst outside, a lovely sunny garden is set out in traditional English cottage style. Unusually, there is plenty of parking in a wide, gated drive.

An ideal home equally suitable for downsizing, or for busy professional people looking for a period cottage that is wholly practical for modern living.
