REAR GARDEN The L shaped rear garden is of a favoured westerly aspect and is approximately 150′ in length. Widening to the rear, there is, in our opinion, potential for a building plot subject to access and of course necessary consents being granted. The garden comprises a well tended large lawn, mature shrub, tree and seasonal flowering borders, central ornamental circular patio, wooden pergola creating a secluded seating area, block paved and decked patio area abutting the conservatory, ornamental fish pond, wooden summer house, wooden shed, greenhouse, vegetable plot and two brick built storage sheds. Backing onto Goffs Park, there is a real feel of seclusion.
PARKING Blocked paved driveway to the front of the property providing off street parking for approximately five vehicles.
VENDOR’S OPINION We have loved our time here as the property has offered us fantastic versatile accommodation as our family has grown over the years. It has meant us being able to keep the family together for longer but still offer a degree of independent living whilst still all being under one roof.
Another major benefit is being with easy walking distance of the 2 supermarkets and Crawley town centre with its array of restaurants, shops, cinema and bowling. Crawley railway station with its great commuter links direct to London is also within easy walking distance.
Despite being so close to town the property offers up to 5 off road parking spaces, and the garden is a true refuge. Backing onto Goff’s Park means there is a lot of bird and wildlife to see and hear. You can easily relax in front of the summerhouse or potter around the greenhouse and vegetable patches in peace. e size of the garden and conservatory lends itself as a great place for entertaining friends and family.
