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, Barclays bank 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.

Approximate Distances: 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

A detached former coach house of brick and tile construction with recently-installed double-glazed timber-frame windows. Originally converted to a house in 1991, the interior of the building has recently been severely affected by water damage due to a failed plumbing fixture and all internal fittings and stud walls have been removed, creating an open-plan shell for redevelopment. Planning consent has been obtained for the installation of roof lights to enhance the original layout, and there is a private contained garden to the rear and a parking space to the front. This is a full refurbishment project, enabling a buyer to design an individual house to their own internal specification in this exceptional setting.
