Victorian cottage in need of renovation in Steyning

Have your say

A rare opportunity to acquire this detached two bedroom Victorian cottage situated in the heart of Steyning.

The property, in Station Road, is adjacent to St Andrews Church, the vicarage and St Cuthman’s Field.

Accommodation comprises: entrance hall with understairs cupboard, living room, dining room, lobby, door to rear garden, and kitchen with walk-in pantry.

Stairs lead to the first floor landing, two bedrooms and bathroom and separate WC.

It is believed the property was constructed in the 1870s and was previously known as ‘Chirk Cottage’, and records show that it was occupied between 1886 and 1922 and was then sold in May 1922.

It was subsequently purchased in October 1927 by the family of the current owners, and is therefore up for sale for the first time in 88 years.

Interested parties are advised that the property requires complete renovation throughout and certain questions can be answered regarding the extent of this by our staff prior to a viewing being booked.

Please note that internal viewing will be restricted due to the poor condition of the dining room floor, however, it is possible to view this room from the entrance hall.

There is potential for a ground and first floor extension to the rear of the house, subject to the necessary consents being obtainable.

The cottage is within the conservation area and interested parties are advised to make enquiries through Horsham District Council planning department.

Viewing will be conducted over two open days, the first on Saturday, August 8, between 11am and 1pm, and the second on Tuesday, August 11, between 4pm and 6pm.

Price OIEO £395,000 Freehold.
