Location

On the south-west side of Steyning's historic High Street, Sheep Pen Lane is one of the oldest roads in the town and its very name has changed over the centuries. In 1271 it was known as 'le Schepenestrete' and the plate recording the old names of the lane is affixed to the front wall of The Coach House. Steyning High Street has a beautiful range of domestic and part-commercial architecture and provides shops for day-to-day needs and Post Office. Primary and secondary schools are within walking distance, as are many social and recreational facilities, including leisure centre with swimming pool, and tennis courts, as well as modern health centre. Nearby Charlton Street gives access to the cricket field and beyond to the South Downs and miles of open country.

Steyning lies at the foot of the South Downs National Park, about five miles from the coast at Shoreham-by-Sea (main line railway station to London Victoria) and eight miles from Worthing. Brighton is about 11 miles and Horsham 14, and Gatwick Airport can normally be reached in about 40 minutes by car.

Description

An exceptional and individual detached house recently fully refurbished to provide stylish modern living space in the heart of the town with a secluded and landscaped garden. Originally a coach house, believed to date from 1830, the attractive elevations are mellow brick with timber windows under a tiled roof. The refurbishment has included reverting the building to its original internal shell and redesigning the layout to maximise the use of space with an open-plan ground floor layout and thoughtful first floor arrangement with obscure-glazed internal doors to distribute light. The house is now an efficient home with high levels of insulation, double-glazed windows, modern lighting and a newly installed gas central heating system. The newly installed kitchen area is fully fitted and there is a new white bathroom suite. Decorations are new throughout and include new carpeting and floor coverings and fitted blinds to windows. The buyer will enjoy the comforts of a 21st Century home which is immediately ready for occupation. There is a landscaped and secluded garden to the rear and the rare advantage of a parking bay within a stone's throw of the High Street. Viewing is highly recommended.
