AREA INFORMATION Northgate was the second neighbourhood to be built on fields to the north-east of the town centre. Bordered by West Green, Langley Green, Three Bridges and Southgate, the town centre is also included in the Northgate neighbourhood, including the main shopping areas of Queens Square and County Mall. There are two churches, a primary school and extensive parade of shops which includes Efes BBQ Turkish restaurant and mezze bar. Crawley Police Station can be found on the edge of the neighbourhood. Northgate falls within the catchment area of Hazelwick school, a very popular and highly-regarded school both academically and socially. The 24 hour Fastway Metrobus passes through the neighbourhood linking with Manor Royal, Gatwick Airport and beyond. Both Crawley and Three Bridges mainline train stations are readily accessible providing direct routes to London and Brighton. In our opinion Northgate is a great choice for easy access to the town centre and all the facilities on offer at Crawley Leisure Park including Hollywood Bowl, Cineworld multi-screen cinema, gym and swimming pool, and many restaurants including Bella Italia, Frankie and Benny's and Nando's.
VENDOR'S COMMENTS We purchased our house through Homes nearly 25 years ago, being wowed by the sheer potential and size that the house and garden offered. It has been a labour of love refurbishing and updating it as our growing family's needs evolved. We have loved living here, being so near to the town centre, Gatwick, the coast, local amenities, open spaces and great commuter links. The house has always been the go-to place for our large family get togethers (30+). The area offered great facilities and opportunities for our children who have all done well here. We are only moving as we want to be nearer to our first grandchild. Crawley has lots to offer everyone and we have made many friends here.
