The Studio
Manley's Hill, Storrington

The Property

As its name indicates, The Studio was built for an artist and originates from 1916, with handsome Edwardian features and architectural influences that also reflect the Arts & Crafts era. 

A 2-storey north-light window on the Manley's hill side of the house lets light flood in to the magnificent main reception room - with its wood floor, carved stone fireplace and stunning ironwork railed gallery/mezzanine. The room has been used as a dance studio in recent times, and makes a wonderful living room, soaring up to the vaulted roof.  The gallery itself is also big enough for library and other furnishings. 

Also on the ground floor you have a lovely light south room opening onto the terrace and overlooking the gardens - this is perfect as a tranquil sitting room, or alternatively it can be a bedroom with an adjacent shower room. 

Off the hall is a Home Office/ Study, looking out through the wisteria to a full-width terrace and gardens; and the original pine staircase takes you to differing first floor levels, where there is the main bedroom suite, two other bedrooms and a pretty family bathroom. 

Scope exists to make a beautiful garden-facing dining/kitchen by combining the large utility room with the existing kitchen (subject to regulations) - it is also fair to say the house would benefit from fresh neutral-tone décor. Although having a Manley's Hill address, The Studio has its drive and entrance from Meadowside, where there is parking & turning space; and the gate leading to the south front of the house with its sweeping arched Edwardian porch and period front door. Expanses of lawn with specimen trees and natural screening extend out on the south side, providing a large, enclosed garden. 

We can see someone turning The Studio into an absolutely stunning and architecturally unique home - not even two minutes walk from the village centre. Yes, the north side is on Manley's Hill (almost hidden in fact), but the house is very substantial, faces south, has tremendous space and the facilities for Home Working. Where else would you find all these features?  

This is a rare opportunity to buy a significant village house, so why not book an early personal viewing to avoid disappointment.
