CALL NOW TO BOOK YOUR 360 VIRTUAL TOUR! Homes Partnership is delighted to bring to the market, with no onward chain, this semi detached property located in a sought after road in the residential neighbourhood of Southgate, just 0.5 miles to Crawley town centre and train station. Whilst the property boasts three reception rooms and five bedrooms, its most endearing factor is that it is almost completely unspoilt, presenting more or less as it was when built by Longley, for his senior workers, in the early Edwardian era. The front entrance and porch still exhibit the original and quite striking stained-glass leaded windows and panels which then open into a large hallway with a beautiful staircase to the first floor and looking up, a large stained-glass hatch / window to the loft. Whilst this does mean that it isn't for the feint hearted, as there is a fair amount of modernisation required, the benefit to the new owner of this family home is that not only can you keep all the stunning character on show but homes like this also lend themselves to being enlarged through extension or conversion, (STPC) whether up into the loft or out to the rear. The ground floor comprises a family room to the front, lounge to the rear, dining room with a window to the side aspect and a kitchen with a door to the side aspect, a door to a store room and door to a pantry. On the first floor there are five bedrooms and bathroom. The property has many appealing character features including sash windows, a butler sink and feature fireplaces. Outside both front and rear gardens are laid to lawn, the rear garden has mature trees, plants and shrubs. There is a drive way for one vehicle with double gates leading to the rear garden. The single garage is situated within the rear garden. Conveniently placed for all local amenities and with a choice of schools, this would make a great family home and we would urge a viewing to see if this could be the place you call home and fill with love and laughter.

AREA INFORMATION 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 County Mall, while benefitting from open spaces and easy access to the A23 and junction 11 of the M23.
VENDOR'S COMMENTS My family bought the house in 1963 and had a long-standing friendship with the builder Norman Longley. It was bought as a 'forever family home'. The house provided for a family but also for welcoming friends on a daily basis. It was a true home filled with warmth, laughter and love and even the garden provided its fair share of fruits and flowers that were regularly found in the home and the cooking!
