A rare example of a detached Frank Duke house dating from 1928 and built to a high specification using traditional and reclaimed materials including oak and timbers reputed to be from shipping and which occupies a prime corner plot a convenient distance from the end of Steyning High street.

This fine house has been improved and extended by the current owners who have added a wonderful garden room to the rear, an ensuite shower room and a large detached garage with driveway and off-street parking.

This light and airy house includes brick and part tile hung elevations under a tiled pitched roof and has a wealth of character throughout due to the quality materials used including oak doors, floors, beams and staircase. The large solid front door leads into an Entrance hallway with brick fireplace (look for the paw print!) and wood flooring, the staircase turns up to the first floor and doors lead into the sitting room. This double aspect room has beams and is dominated by an inglenook fireplace with a modern solid fuel burner. An ornate feature door leads through into the dining room which has been extended into a garden room giving a large but comfortable space for entertaining or relaxing with outlook and access out to the garden. The adjacent kitchen has solid oak units with Quartz worktops with quarry tiled floor. A pretty cloakroom with mosaic tiled splashback has charm and character. Up the stairs and passing a large picture window to the front leads to three bedrooms and the family bathroom. The master has an ensuite shower and there is the potential to build a fourth bedroom above the garden room (subject to the usual consents). Adjacent to the house is a large garage with electric up and over door. There is good space for a car and work bench plus utility area and storage above. The roof extends to a low level to create a useful log store and covered area. The house sits on a good plot with a level wrap around garden which is mainly laid to lawn with a Indian sandstone terrace to the side. The garden is not overlooked but does give views to the South Downs. EPC Pending.
