Step inside this beautiful 1930s detached home in West Sussex

The owner was well settled in her previous home, but its busy location was becoming a problem. ‘The house was down a quiet lane, but there was always traffic, which wasn’t ideal when my grandchildren came to visit. Also, it was situated on the outskirts of town, so I didn’t feel as connected to the community as I could.’

The owner decided it was a good time to look for something more suitable. When she started her search, she knew exactly what she wanted. ‘I was after a similar property but with bigger rooms and a larger garden. I was also keen to be closer to the town but without the worry of roads. However, there wasn’t anything that fitted my budget, so I had to make a few compromises.’
