Location

Set in the wonderful scenery of the South Downs National Park, the lively West Sussex village of Storrington has traditional shops and traders, with restaurants and take-aways. Health Centres, Storrington First School, banks, Post Office & the Public Library are all within walking distance. Ferndale is a small close running off Monastery Lane just on the south side of the village and contains a group of established cottage-style houses. The Monastery fields are a pleasant open space nearby for dog walking, just off Monastery Lane and footpaths at the end of Kithurst Lane take you up to the top of the Downs, with stunning views along the South Downs Way. Another route circles the edge of the village out to Cootham and to the grounds of Parham House. A Waitrose store & Costa is in Old Mill Square, whilst even closer, the nearby Tesco Express shop and petrol station in Pulborough Road is open 6am-10pm. There are larger Sainsbury's & Tesco stores in neighouring Pulborough.

Leisure activities include local tennis & squash clubs, the Chanctonbury Leisure Centre (swimming at Steyning); 2 golf courses, gliding at Parham; and sailing at the south coast. There is racing & world-renowned Festival of Speed & the Revival at Goodwood. Top High Street shops and a variety of cultural & entertainment events are in Chichester, Horsham & Brighton.

The property

One of a small group of houses bordering the mature gardens of surrounding properties, set in a hidden-away close with no through traffic. Originating from the 1920's, Number 2 has been enlarged downstairs with a bigger hall and an extended sitting room. The big farmhouse-style dining kitchen is an attraction, making a great social area for the family, childrens' homework etc. There is a separate utility room as well as a useful conservatory/garden room. Heating is by gas from a Worcester combi gas boiler, with double glazing. Garden enthusiasts will appreciate the good size rear garden, which enjoys a high level of natural privacy and is long enough to provide areas in sun and shade.

In addition to drive parking, the house has its own single garage just along the close.

Properties seldom become available in this locality and suiting family or downsizing buyers equally well, we recommend early viewing.
