An EXTENDED and improved 1920s mock Tudor DETACHED cottage arranged over 3 FLOORS with 4 BEDROOMS and 3/4 RECEPTION ROOMS. The property offers great potential to FURTHER IMPROVE/EXTEND (STPP), has private DRIVEWAY parking and a DETACHED DOUBLE GARAGE with a HOBBIES ROOM ABOVE and is set within large gardens in a highly regarded semi-rural private lane on the fringes of Storrington, just under a couple of miles distant from the thriving village centre.
A bright and spacious, welcoming RECEPTION HALL leads through to the principal ground floor rooms as well as accommodating the stairs to the first floor landing. The significant double aspect LIVING ROOM forms two areas and is partially sectioned with a large squared arch, sitting to the rear of the property with far views over the sizeable rear garden, complete with a timber framed SUN ROOM off connecting through sliding aluminium doors. A Georgian style open fireplace with a wooden and marble surround along with picture rails create a cosy ambience to this room, while to the far end are sliding patio doors opening on to the southerly side aspect of the garden. A separate and formal DINING ROOM with a front easterly outlook, also features a Georgian style fireplace but is currently fitted with an electric fire. From here, double opening part-glazed doors open into a spacious room extension, used as a STUDY/OFFICE, having a pleasant outlook to the side garden through two large spanning windows, and a convenient external door. A CLOAKROOM lays adjacent with access directly from here and is fitted with a WC and wash-hand basin. A hand-built, bespoke country style KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM, laid with a wood-plank effect Karndean floor, has a painted finish and spans two sections, both enjoying large windows allowing lovely views across the rear garden beyond, and both being comprehensively fitted with complementing granite work surfaces incorporating a single stainless steel sink with a grooved drainer with space and plumbing adjacent for a dishwasher. A Britannia range-style electric cooker is positioned to one aspect having a canopied and ornate hood fitted above whilst concealing an extractor fan. Within this area is plenty of room for a good size dining table with a further area extending under the stairs, ideal for bookcasing and/or storage. There is also an imposing panelled wooden fireplace surround in a matching design and contains an ornamental woodburning stove for aesthetic purposes (which could possibly be connected). A walk-in larder cupboard is positioned in the latter section of the kitchen where there are plenty of shelves for storage in addition to a space for an upright fridge/freezer. Beyond here is a door through to a sizeable triple aspect UTILITY/BOOT ROOM, an extension to the property, laid with a tiled natural slate floor and fitted with a wood-strip effect laminate work surface with a cupboard below and spaces for a washing machine and tumble dryer either side. Also housed within this room is a brand new Vaillant gas boiler along with the hot water cylinder which is on a pressurised system. There is a further area of fitted shelving ideal for storing boots and shoes where alongside is a door to outside. .
From the hallway a turned staircase rises to the FIRST FLOOR landing where there are THREE BEDROOMS and a bathroom. Bedroom 1 is positioned with views predominantly to the rear extremely bright and airy with a dual aspect and has a beautiful Victorian style cast iron fireplace with a marble hearth. Bedroom 2, a further double, again has a dual aspect and fitted with a double wardrobe cupboard in addition to a single with shelving. Bedroom 3 has a rear aspect and is single in size.
