Full description

A detached chalet-style house, built in 1965 and owned by the same family since new. During this time the owners have maintained and improved the house, and created the beautiful gardens which have been tended to an exceptional standard. The gardens have deservedly featured in the Steyning Open Gardens weekend. The pretty front garden is set behind a low hedge and flanked by a mass of scented rose bushes with a perfectly-tended lawn and brick paver driveway. There is gated access to the secure rear garden which enjoys a secluded south-facing aspect and is contained by established and trimmed hedging with further meticulously-tended lawns and shaped beds and borders stocked with a variety of established rose bushes with herbaceous borders. There is a small paved terrace adjoining the house and stepping-stone pathways lead to the stocked circular fishpond and through a rose- and clematis-clad pergola to a secret vegetable garden with established raspberry and strawberry plants. With full double glazing, cavity insulation and an efficient gas heating system, this is a comfortable home with potential for enlargement subject to usual consents. Early possession is available.
The house is situated in a peaceful cul-de-sac setting and occupies a generous corner plot with glimpses of the South Downs to the east and west from the park-like rear garden. The High Street of Steyning is about half a mile distant with convenient pedestrian access via footpaths; the picturesque town centre contains shops for all daily needs and there are primary and secondary schools, a local sports complex with indoor swimming pool, modern health centre and churches. The South Downs National Park forms the backdrop to Steyning and provides open walking country for many miles.

The main line railway station at Shoreham-by-Sea is about five miles away and the larger coastal towns of Worthing and Brighton are eight and 12 miles respectively. Horsham, Crawley and Gatwick Airport can normally be reached in about 40 minutes by car.
