A substantial four bedroom DETACHED PERIOD HOME with OUTSTANDING VIEWS across AMBERLEY WILDBROOKS and towards the SOUTH DOWNS NATIONAL PARK beyond, situated in a QUIET LANE within this fine Sussex downland village.
Amberley is one of the most picturesque villages in West Sussex, nestling at the foot of the South Downs. There are some very old, beautiful thatched properties in the village, steeped in history. The village has its own picturesque castle, Amberley Castle, which is now used as a hotel and restaurant. The surrounding area is set in beautiful countryside, forming part of the Sussex Downs National Park.
Amberley Wild Brooks are situated to the north of the village, and are the tidal plain for the River Arun. This wetland area has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Walking on the top of the South Downs gives stunning views, and sometimes the gliders from the South Downs Gliding Club can be seen gliding below. There is a fascinating historical museum (a James Bond film was once filmed there!), theAmberley Working Museum which occupies a 36 acre old chalk pit, and has working buses and a steam train travelling around the site.
There is a village shop containing a post office serving the local community. Pulborough and Bury villages are close by and have both state and private primary schools. There is a tearoom and a local pub - The Sportman at Crossgates has a conservatory overlooking the Wildbrooks with lovely views.
There are regular rail services to London, Gatwick, Bognor Regis and Portsmouth from Amberley Station, which is within walking distance of the village. Arundel with its castle is approximately six miles and the coast is within easy reach. The A27 and A29 give good access to the main road network, in turn giving speedy access to the motorways.
