Field House
Sandy Lane



The lively village of Storrington lies at the foot of the South Downs, in beautiful Sussex countryside with wonderful walks within the South Downs National Park as well as National Trust heath & woodland just along the lane at St Georges Warren.  Sandy Lane has homes only on one side and is a little-known lane in the network winding between Washington Road and Rock Road, containing interesting properties of differing age and design in semi-rural surroundings. This property has probably the finest uninterrupted views directly over National Trust farmland to the South Downs in the distance.    
Storrington village is about 1½ miles to the west with useful shops & traders providing good everyday shopping; with a large Waitrose store and new Costa in Old Mill Square.  There is a new M&S petrol station & shop at Ashington, with larger Tesco and Sainsbury's stores in  neighbouring Pulborough.  The village also has a Post Office, library, health centre, banks, deli, restaurants, coffee shops and good community amenities.  Leisure activities include two golf courses, mountain-biking on the Downs; and Chanctonbury Leisure Centre & Gym (swimming pool at Steyning). A good choice of private and state schools will be found in the area, including Windlesham House, Farlington, Dorset House, Lancing College and Steyning Grammar School.


There is sailing from Chichester & Littlehampton harbours and gliding at Parham; with horseracing and the renowned Festival of Speed & Revival motorsport events at glorious Goodwood. Brighton, Chichester & Horsham are  accessible, with top High Street shopping names and hosting theatre productions; plus a variety of cultural events and exhibitions.


Field House  


Few locations can equal this setting - here, horses are ridden along the lane and you can see deer roaming across the fields just over the hedgerow, with little more than birdsong in the background.

Enjoying a green backdrop, Field House enjoys the most wonderful open views that just get better as you ascend through the three levels.  This  farmhouse-style home enjoys mainly south, east and west aspects, the renowned Scandia-Hus company design combining style and space with high efficiency. 

Underfloor heating is integrally designed (no ugly radiators) and triple glazing is featured as well as high in-built insulation). Heating zones and temperatures are all controllable to suit your lifestyle and there's a Villavent silent extraction system in all bathrooms/cloakroom and the kitchen.


A glance at the floor plan will show you that all rooms are a really good size, and not at the expense of the hall & landing, in itself a feature with room for iconic furnishings. The first floor balcony has a wonderful view, as do so many rooms - and the view is protected, the fields being owned by the National Trust , with the South Downs National Park beyond. 

There are so many features, lots of natural light, a great social family dining/breakfast room and a study big enough for the piano with room to spare.
Our clients will miss these views, but are only moving  to a new house nearby, and yes, it is another Scandia-Hus.

Don't miss this opportunity to buy a superb home - big enough for a large family, but equally suitable for a couple who enjoy entertaining and having family or guests to stay.
