An attractive detached house, one of a pair, built in the style of lodge cottages in 1988/89 at the entrance to this well-designed retirement development. The roadside boundary is a flint and brick wall enclosing a well-stocked garden which is communal to the scheme but is more or less private. The rooms are nicely proportioned, enjoying some views to the ridge of the South Downs. Windows are double-glazed and there is gas-fired central heating to radiators.

Penns Court is an award-winning development of houses and flats built specifically for retirement (the age qualification to live in the property is 60 years). The managing agency is responsible for maintenance of the outside of the house and there is an emergency call system with a part-time house manager.


Penns Court is situated within the Conservation Area and close to the High Street where there are shops for day-to-day needs, and Post Office. Churches, library and the modern health centre in Tanyard Lane are also easily reached. With its many local recreational amenities, Steyning is a most attractive town for retirement.

Steyning lies at the foot of the South Downs National Park, about five miles from Shoreham where there is a mainline railway station, eight miles from Worthing, 12 miles from Brighton and 14 miles from Horsham.
