Wyncombe Close


Wyncombe Close is a wide private lane bordering woodland and  carrying no through traffic.  Fittleworth village lies in beautiful Sussex woodland and countryside south on the A283 from the historic    market town of Petworth, known for the wonderful 17th Century Petworth House and Petworth Park grounds (National Trust).  The town has interesting shops & restaurants, whilst within a short drive, Pulborough village provides community amenities and the station with trains to London Victoria. Both Sainsbury's and Tesco Metro have stores in London Road  Pulborough and a Waitrose store (John Lewis collection point) and good local shops, banks, restaurants, library & Post Office in neighbouring Storrington.

The area provides lovely walking country, including Hesworth      Common nearby, local woodland footpaths and the River Arun.  The village is also known for the ancient Swan Inn & Restaurant.  Leisure activities nearby include golf and the RSPB nature reserve at    Pulborough Brooks.  Further afield there is sailing at the south coast; with horseracing and renowned motorsport events at Goodwood.

Guildford, Chichester and Horsham have the top High Street shopping names, as well as hosting theatre productions, cinemas, restaurants and a variety of cultural events & exhibitions.


The Property

This 1950's detached bungalow has been in the same family ownership since it was built and stands on the higher side of Wyncombe Close, set in a lovely garden plot with a rear width     probably in excess of 100 ft. The close contains other detached properties in mature garden surroundings, most having been enlarged over the years. 

The present layout provides two double bedrooms and offers considerable scope to enlarge by converting roof space, as well there being room to extend to the side (subject to consents). 

Some years ago, a useful utility/workroom was added off the kitchen and this, together with the garage could provide additional potential.  The original bathroom has been converted to a shower room. 

With night storage heating and modern double glazing, Gorseland will undoubtedly appeal to those who look for a property they can change to their own requirements.

Rear garden      This is probably over 100 ft in width and some 50-55 ft deep; and has been beautifully planted over the years with carefully chosen evergreens, and flowering shrubs. The garden rises slightly towards the rear boundary which is screened by tall hedges, with a copper beech hedge on the east side and recent close-fencing to the northern boundary. Now rather overgrown, the area behind the bungalow has paving, a small pond and beds containing heathers, azaleas and roses.  Garden shed, compost area.
