Kithurst Lane
Storrington

Location

 

Few locations could even come close to equalling this setting, on the sunny south-facing slopes of Kithurst Hill and within the South Downs National Park - yet only a ten minute stroll into the village along School Lane & Church Street (the old school now a rural/village museum). Footpaths nearby provide walks across the fields in the view and up onto the Downs, connecting with the South Downs Way.  

 

Storrington has everything for day-to-day needs - traditional local shops, 4 banks, coffee shops and good restaurants/takeaways. 

Community amenities include the Post Office, Library and nearby Glebe Health Centre. Larger Sainsbury's & Tesco stores are in Pulborough and rail services run from Pulborough and Amberley stations.  

 

A large Waitrose store (John Lewis collection point) & Costa is in Old Mill Square and there's a 6am - 10pm opening Tesco Express & petrol station in Pulborough Road. Leisure pursuits include gliding at Parham, tennis & squash clubs, golf at the West Sussex; and the Chanctonbury Leisure Centre & Gym (swimming at Steyning). 

 

Excellent schools in both the state and private sector include Steyning Grammar, The Weald, Dorset House, Windlesham House School, Lancing College, Christ's Hospital and Hurstpierpoint. 

 

Glorious Goodwood has horse racing as well as the Festival of Speed & Revival motorsport events and there is sailing from Chichester & Littlehampton harbours.  There are several good local pubs & restaurants in the area. 

 

Horsham, Chichester & Brighton all have the big High Street shopping names as well as a variety of theatre, cultural & entertainment events.

 

The property

 

When our clients decided to have their new home built, they brought together both traditional aesthetics and up-to-the-minute technology to create an architect-inspired house design that sits in harmony with the landscape.  An eco-conscious approach to energy and the environment is evidenced in features such as high insulation, an air-source heat pump heating system and solar panels that have made a net energy contribution of £400 per annum paid back to the owners.  The eco-drainage system also means low water charges.   

 

The beautiful plot of about 0.65 acre has been set out with semi-formal gardens, sunny terrace, a home produce section and the lower wildflower meadow. There is a long private drive, lots of parking  and a double garage with scope to make a playroom/studio above.  

 

Inside the house, the backdrop of the gardens and views are brought in through large areas of glass, with tall windows and wonderful natural light.  A look inside is essential to take in the quality, finish and features of this unique home.  

 

This is a once in a lifetime property - if you are looking for an interesting, practical and easily managed home, don't miss this very rare opportunity.
