Summary

The cottage is the southern end of an attractive terrace of four period homes and is Grade II listed. Built in the early 19th Century, the property has coursed flint elevations with red brick dressings to sash-hung windows and brick dentil course under a pitched roof, with slate to the front and tiling to the rear slope. There is parking to the front and a generous part-walled mature garden to the rear. The present owners have carefully maintained the house which provides charming accommodation arranged over three floors. There are some exposed timbers, a sitting room with wood-burning stove, country-style kitchen and a traditional bathroom. There is gas-fired central heating to radiators. The exceptional attribute is the mature rear garden which provides an unexpectedly tranquil environment so close to the High Street.

Location

In a quiet byway in the picturesque heart of Steyning, Elm Grove Lane (which has traffic restriction except for access) is a peaceful setting within the Conservation Area and the cottage is just a short stroll from the High Street. The town has a good range of shops, modern health centre, Post Office and primary and secondary schools with many social and recreational facilities, including leisure centre with swimming pool, and tennis courts nearby.

Steyning lies at the foot of the South Downs National Park, about five miles from the coast at Shoreham-by-Sea (mainline 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.
