From St. Botolphs Road, which forms part of the South Downs Way, the whitened elevations of Tinpots Cottage, once a pair of cottages, stand out against the verdant background of gently sloping farmland. Built some 250 years ago this spacious country cottage stands in secluded grounds approaching three-quarters of an acre with well-tended gardens and a small wooded area. Occupied and carefully maintained and improved by the present owners for three decades, this comfortable rural home has log-burning stoves, full double glazing and oil-fired central heating. The hall has a cloaks/shower room off and opens to a cosy snug with log burner at the hub of the house. The study to the left is equally suitable as a ground floor fourth bedroom and as with the majority of the accommodation it enjoys wonderful open country views. The sitting room has a further log burner and opens to a bright south-facing conservatory enjoying solar gain and full advantage of the Downland aspect. There is a return door to the central dining room. The kitchen is on the western side with space for a table, oak-fronted units and granite worktops. On the first floor there are further fine views, three double bedrooms and en-suite bathroom and family shower room. Outside, the tranquil environment can be fully appreciated and the well-tended gardens include areas of lawn, mature trees, stocked beds and a small kitchen garden. There is a small wooded area ideal for adventurous children, and a double garage with attached tool room and staircase to a spacious loft area above. In summary, this a rare opportunity to buy a rural home in an extraordinary setting without isolation and with scope for enlargement and further enhancement.

The property stands in a peaceful rural setting approached by a tree-lined country track on the western edge of the Adur Valley with extensive views over farmland to the beautiful Sussex Downs. It is a fine location on the fringe of an ancient small settlement of attractive homes about 1½ miles from Steyning where there are a number of shops, banks, Post Office, leisure centre and modern health centre. It is within the boundaries of the South Downs National Park, with the South Downs Way easily accessible.

Shoreham-by Sea three miles, Brighton 10 miles, Horsham 19 miles, Gatwick 34 miles and London 59 miles.
