Tenure: Freehold

A unique award-winning design, and a featured property on BBC 2 Restoration Home, this detached dwelling occupies a plot close to half an acre which is screened by mature trees and shrubs and is securely fenced and gated providing a safe haven for both children and pets to play. To the front is a gravel driveway with ample parking for up to eight vehicles. To the side an extensive paved terrace, perfect for entertaining and to the rear a large lawn with beech hedging.

The accommodation works perfectly for a family, or those with a dependent relative or staff. A professional wishing to work from home or commuting to Gatwick, London or the South Coast would be perfectly placed here, or a London family seeking the ultimate 'lockupandleave' party house for weekends.

In addition there is planning consent to build an additional three bedroom annex or studio within the plot should a purchaser require extra ancillary accommodation.


Located to the south side of the village and approached via a private lane which rises to a small group of properties either side of the lane, Nutbourne Studio is immediately evident on the right hand side. This former water pumping station has a formal shape and has a bright light exterior. This remarkable building has been transformed to a wonderful contemporary family home of almost 5000 sq ft.

Nutbourne, situated between Pulborough and Storrington on the northern edge of the South Downs National Park. Taking its name from its past, when the area was known for having a substantial number or nut trees, the landscape today is predominantly farmland and vineyards. The village has an attractive high street and a public house, namely The Rising Sun which dates back to the 16th Century. Pulborough has a good range of facilities including two supermarkets, Sainsbury's and Tesco, together with a range of independent outlets.

Petworth is a picturesque market town with a good selection of shops and restaurants, surrounded by lovely rolling farmland. Adjoining the town is Petworth House and Park, owned by the National Trust. In July, the annual music and arts festival takes place in Petworth, with other concerts and allied activities taking place throughout the year. There are numerous sporting activities available in the area, including several local golf courses, racing at Goodwood and polo at Cowdray Park. Rail services are available from Pulborough station to Gatwick and London Victoria and from Haslemere station to London Waterloo.

Storrington is located approximately 9 miles north of Worthing at the foot of the South Downs, lying close to the A24 dual carriageway providing good access to the M23 and M25 motorways. This small town has a good mix of shops and eateries together with a Waitrose supermarket.

The current owners have catered for the demands of our high tech lifestyles and have included satellite broadband, Wi-fi network with Ethernet cabling and sound systems to principal spaces - the acoustics of this building are fabulous. The interior is open plan in the main with an abundance of natural light, high ceilings and large skylight windows, with underfloor heating preserving the clean lines of the building. The large dark floor tiles are a direct contrast to the white wall space which is perfect for displaying treasured art works, in fact the interior has the feeling of an art gallery in so much as it is both inspirational and uplifting.

The kitchen dining area has a super breakfast bar together with bespoke kitchen units and modern NEFF appliances. This dual aspect room, perfect for dinner parties, has ample space for a dining table and chairs and room to dance after dinner!

Beautifully presented throughout there are 5 bedrooms in total, all are good size double rooms and the master bedroom being en-suite. Additional facilities include a family bathroom and a shower room.

For those who wish to put their own stamp on a property there is scope to make some changes. The generous basement rooms could be adapted to include an indoor swimming pool and this space would work equally well as a Cinema/Games Room/Gymnasium, recording studio or wine cellar.

A very interesting financial fact about this property is that it generates a cash return for renewable energy and therefore benefits the owners from a resource worth approximately £7,500 per annum. There is obviously a great deal of science included in the build, details of which are available to interested potential purchasers who wish to see it, but the sustainability of items such as the ground source heat pump and photovoltaic arrays need little attention to maintain this rarely achieved level of eco efficiency.
