West Street
Storrington

Location

The lively village of Storrington is set in beautiful Sussex countryside at the foot of the South Downs National Park. There are wonderful walks to the Downs and the village centre is just 350 yards away with good local shops and traders for everyday needs, with a Waitrose store (John Lewis Click & Collect) and Costa in Old Mill Square.  

 

A 6am-10pm Tesco Express & petrol station is in Pulborough Road; and larger Tesco & Sainsbury's stores are in neighbouring Pulborough. Storrington also has a Post Office, 4 banks, Library, coffee shops, take-aways & good restaurants. There are good community amenities and The Glebe Health Centre is nearby in Monastery Lane.

 

Leisure activities include golf, Chanctonbury Leisure Centre & Gym (swimming at Steyning); and sailing from Chichester & Littlehampton harbours.  There is gliding at Parham airfield, as well as mountain biking & horse riding locally. Horse racing and the renowned Festival of Speed & Revival motor sport events take place at Goodwood.

 

Brighton, Chichester & Horsham, have the top High Street shopping names and host theatre productions, plus a variety of cultural events & exhibitions.   

The position couldn't be more handy, being just on the edge of the village centre. 

 

The property

Situated at the broader end of West Street, The Elms is a handsome period house that sits slightly raised from street level, looking through a gap in the buildings opposite with the Downs visible in the distance. 

 

Although a thoroughly practical and modern-living home, the origins of the house apparently go back to Medieval times and can be seen in the tall room that is now the rear hall.

 

If you think of period houses being gloomy inside with low beams, then The Elms is a refreshing departure with good "flow", high ceilings and multiple windows - many rooms are double-aspect, letting let lots of natural light flood in. 

 

At nearly 2,500 sq ft (plus the double garage), the generous size of the house is felt in the proportions of the sitting room as well as the elegant dining/entertaining room. A high quality kitchen conservatory was added by Room Outside of Chichester, creating a granite-worktop kitchen and family eating area that's a full 24ft in length. And there's a cosy study/snug too, ideal as a home office or for the childrens' homework. 

 

Upstairs 5 good size bedrooms are all doubles; with 2 bath/shower rooms, one en-suite.  Heating is by gas (boiler & radiator system) and because the house isn't a Listed Building, there is efficient double glazing. 

 

A wide exclusive drive gives access to a large parking area and the detached double garage building.  The Elms garden actually widens behind the house next door, providing a broader lawn than you'd expect and a pleasant part-walled garden. 

 

The Elms is equally suited to a family or a couple looking for an elegant home close to the heart of this popular, well-served West Sussex village.
