    Kithurst House is a most striking property forming part of St. Joseph's Abbey. The property offers elegant accommodation that is extremely well appointed and maintained beautifully. The additional benefit of the fabulous grounds incorporating a tennis court is a wonderful bonus while being situated at the foot of the Downs and at the same time just over 300m from Storrington's High Street, gives the location the best of both worlds.
