Location

The twin villages of Clapham & Patching lie on opposing hills amidst the fields and woods on the southern slopes of the South Downs National Park, within the Arun District of West Sussex. The pretty Downland village of Clapham has picturesque flint cottages and carries no through traffic. It has a small primary school, village hall, and a village green, with a Tearoom also selling everyday items. Downland walks just around the corner lead you over gently undulating Sussex hills and include open fields, wonderful views, wooded tracks, peaceful lanes and Clapham Woods - a centuries old working woodland. Picturesque Clapham parish church is nearby.

A mainline station to London Victoria (1hr 28mins) is about 2.5 miles away at Angmering and the large coastal town and resort of Worthing is accessible. Horsham, Brighton and the City of Chichester have the top High Street names and host theatre, entertainments and cultural events. Leisure pursuits include golf courses, with horse racing at Glorious Goodwood, and Fontwell. The renowned Festival od Speed & Revival motorsport events also take place at Goodwood. There is ailing from Chichester & Littlehampton harbours.

The Property

Woodland Close was probably developed in the 1980s and contains properties many of which have been enlarged over the years, set in pleasant garden surroundings. Number 2 stands on a plot with a tree-screened private drive to the left, so has no immediate neighbour on that side, as well as mature trees and greenery at the back.

The present layout features a large 23ft living and dining room, light flooding in through two big windows and enjoying an outlook down the close. There are two double bedrooms and although the present space will suit someone looking for a manageable size home, consent has been obtained to carry out a significant extension - creating a whole new first floor level and a total of 4 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms. There is also space to add a conservatory on one side.

The garden is very private, it wraps around the property to the rear and left side and has been newly re-planned at the front.

Our clients are only moving to get more family space, presenting the chance for someone to buy and change or adapt the property to their own requirements.
