A charming, beautifully-presented, former Granary with delightful gardens and superb views over surrounding landscape, in a convenient semi-rural location.

Believed to date from the 1800’s, this former flint and brick built Granary has been converted into a beautiful family home, enjoying stunning views over the surrounding landscape, taking in both town, country and sea! The Granary is one of four former farm buildings making up this exclusive “courtyard” style development, and is attached to its immediate neighbour on the western elevation.

From the light and spacious entrance hall, doors lead to the dual aspect sitting room with attractive brick built fireplace, log burning stove and French doors opening onto the paved terrace and garden beyond. The dining room with feature arched window and access to the study, together with the kitchen/breakfast room with part wood panelled walls and bespoke solid wood fitted kitchen and integrated appliances; and the garage, including a utility area, also lead from the entrance hall. The majority of ground floor accommodation has stylish Beech wood flooring.

On the first floor, the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, is dual aspect with a delightful balcony at the rear overlooking the garden and views of the beautiful Saxon Church to the front. From the guest bedroom suite, French doors open onto stone steps giving access to the gardens below. Two further bedrooms (one double and one single/nursery) and a family bathroom complete the first floor accommodation.

Outside

The property is approached via wooden five bar gates to a gravel drive which, along with the garage, provides ample parking.

A stone path leads under an attractive brick archway to the delightful front garden, which is laid to lawn with flower and shrub borders and enclosed by a flint and brick wall; providing privacy. To the rear, another stone path leads to a paved terrace providing the perfect location for outside entertaining. The mature rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with flower and shrub borders and specimen trees including apple, damson and pear.

Situation

The Granary enjoys a semi-rural location on the outskirts of Sompting village, with the pretty and historic town of Steyning just over 4 miles away providing a good range of shops and amenities for everyday needs including a supermarket, restaurants, public houses and sports centre. The larger coastal town of Worthing, together with the city of Brighton, are both easily accessible and offer a greater range of both retail and leisure facilities.

Sporting amenities in the area include polo at Cowdray Park, racing at Goodwood, Brighton and Fontwell, golf at Worthing Golf Club, Cowdray Park and Goodwood, motor racing at the Goodwood circuit, sailing out of Brighton Marina, Chichester and Bosham Harbours, in addition to the many footpaths and bridleways in the area for walking and riding.

The A27 and A24 are within easy reach, providing access to the M23, Gatwick Airport and the national motorway network. Mainline stations at Worthing and Lancing provide services to London. There are also a number of good schools in the area including Sompting Abbotts, Lancing College, Shoreham College, Brighton College and Steyning Grammar.

Church Lane, Titch Hill and the Bostal Road onto Steyning was the main coach road from Worthing to London until 1804; and the church of St Mary, a short distance from the property, dates back to the 11th century and was granted to the Knights Templar.

Directions

From Worthing take the A27 heading east towards Brighton, passing the Lyons Farm Retail Park on your left, before turning left onto Church Lane, shortly after the turning to Lambleys Lane. The property will be found on your left, just after St Marys Church.
