AREA INFORMATION Located to the north-west of the town, Langley Green has a lively and friendly community. Home to the Crawley Islamic Centre and Mosque, there is a parade of shops, pub, doctors and rugby club. There is one primary school and the town centre is easily accessible via the 24 hour Fastway bus service. Langley Green is adjacent to County Oak Retail Park which offers a great shopping experience in stores such as Next, PC World, Hobbycraft, Aldi and a Marks and Spencer foodhall. Manor Royal industrial park is also nearby while Gatwick Airport is on the doorstep. In our opinion with so many facilities and employers close by, coupled with a great bus service, Langley Green is a great choice for families and investors.

VENDOR'S COMMENTS We bought the property in 2004 as a buy-to let flat and have had a number of lovely tenants over the years. The flat has never been empty and everyone has commented on how quiet Dove Close is. In 2019 we decided to completely refurbish the flat (new bathroom, kitchen, boiler, electrics, flooring, carpets) and are just refreshing the decor to bring it up to top condition. The flat has produced a reliable income for us over the years due to the buoyant rental market in the area. The flat is a generous size for the area (51m2), is bright and has a good layout. We put a washer/dryer and dishwasher in when we refurbished and a large shower. There is plenty of storage, including a large storage cupboard in the hallway. We bought the flat because of the proximity to Gatwick airport and some of our tenants had worked there and needed a local bolt hole. Parking has never been a problem in the close, as it can be in other parts of Crawley, something buyers who are from Crawley would appreciate. We are selling now because we are relocating to Staffordshire and don't want to manage the property at a distance.
