Location

Thakeham Copse lies on the north-east side of Storrington, close to St Georges Warren (National Trust heath & woodland) with wonderful views and country walks. The road carries no through traffic and contains mainly larger, mature properties in pleasantly established surroundings. La Rochelle is actually in a later-built close right at the top of the road and just on the southern slope of the hill.

With its coffee shops, and traditional traders serving everyday needs, Storrington's lively village centre is about a little over a mile away and enjoys a friendly atmosphere and community. There are good restaurants and take-aways and other amenities include the public library, Post Office, and Health Centre.

Waitrose has a large store in Old Mill Square with Costa Coffee alongside and there is a new M&S garage & 24 hour shop at Ashington. Larger Tesco & Sainsbury's stores are in neighbouring Pulborough. Leisure activities include Chanctonbury Leisure Centre & gym (swimming pool at Steyning), squash & tennis clubs; as well as 2 golf courses. Further afield there is horseracing & motorsport at Goodwood, sailing at the South Coast; plus the top High Street names, theatre & cultural activities in Horsham, Chichester and Brighton.

The property

The renowned housebuilders Berkeley Homes built just four distinctive detached homes in a lovely high-ground position in 2003 and this property is on the sunny southern side, enjoying distant views.
The South Downs can be seen in the distance beyond trees and greenery behind the bungalow.

The generous layout was designed to be ideal for those seeking good size rooms, perhaps downsizing from a bigger family home, without compromising on quality. The orientation of this property also gives a wonderful natural light, with the living areas and kitchen all facing south, and the private, manageable garden is big enough to enjoy without running away with too much maintenance.

Heating is by gas (radiator system) with attractive square pane design double glazed windows. The high roofline of the bungalow incorporates an integral garage and if a formal dining room isn't required, this would make a super-size study, or allow a huge open-plan extension to the already large kitchen breakfast room.

Properties like this seldom come to the market and we recommend early viewing to avoid disappointment.
