Property description


A spacious and homely 3 bedroom semi-detached chalet bungalow. This home has an extremely generous sunny aspect rear garden and impressive views across to Cissbury Ring.

Situated to the north of Worthing in the sought after Findon Valley. It also has quick and easy access north towards Storrington and onto Horsham via the A24.

Originally built circa 1930's this bungalow has benefited historically from a loft conversion providing two mirror image bedrooms upstairs along with a cloakroom, while also retaining plenty of eaves storage space.

Downstairs bedroom 1 is a great sized double and what would have been another bedroom is currently used as a dining room with the stairwell to one side. The family bathroom is also located on the ground floor. The property’s lounge and kitchen sit to the rear of the property and provide access to the rear garden.

The garden is incredibly spacious and provides a large area for children to run around and kick a ball in, or for mum and dad to relax in the sunshine and take in the stunning countryside views.

A certain amount of cosmetic updating would benefit the property, allowing you to put your own stamp on your new home.

What the Owner says:
This home has been in the perfect location for us in a quiet and peaceful area and within touching distance of the Vale School which has been great for my children.

We were initially attracted by the size of the rear garden and views of Cissbury Ring which I hope the next owners will enjoy as much as we have.
