This well presented semi detached home located in the residential neighbourhood of Southgate has been extended and improved. The property is arranged over three floors and has many character features including feature fireplaces in many rooms and stripped floorboards. The ground floor comprises a dining room with bay window to the front, opening to the lounge which leads through to a refitted kitchen with some appliances. There is a downstairs cloakroom and the family room to the rear of the property has a door to the garden. On the first floor there are two double bedrooms and a refitted family bathroom. Stairs lead to the third floor loft room. The property benefits from double glazing throughout, heating by gas to a system of hot water radiators and has recently been insulated and reroofed. Outside the front garden is fully paved with flower beds and the rear garden is beautifully presented with decking, patio and lawn. The property is located just a 0.2 mile walk to Crawley station and is ideal for access to the town centre and the 24 hour Fastway bus service. Offered for sale with no onward chain, in our opinion this would make a great family home and we would urge a viewing.

areainformation Southgate is a mostly residential area with a small scattering of commercial businesses and the Arora International Hotel which was built in 2001. There are two shopping parades, three primary schools (one being a Catholic school) and local pubs. Southgate is also home to St Catherines Hospice, providing hospice care to patients throughout West Sussex and Surrey. There is a skate park within Southgate playing fields, while Goffs Park off the Horsham Road includes woodland walks, childrens play areas, pitch and putt and a model railway. The 24 hour metrobus service passes through Southgate and Crawley railway station lies on the border adjacent to the town centre and offers frequent rail services including to London Bridge within 45 to 55 minutes. Other nearby facilities include the Hawth Theatre and K2 leisure centre. In our opinion Southgate is a great place to live for easy access to the town centre, railway station and Country Mall, while benefitting from open spaces and easy access to the A23 and junction 11 of the M23.
