Homes Partnership is delighted to offer for sale this three bedroom, Victorian property located in the popular residential neighbourhood of Pound Hill. The property oozes charm and character and has many period features including an open fireplace, high ceilings, quarry tiled flooring and pedestal sinks in two bedrooms. The accommodation in full comprises an entrance hall with the feature flooring which continues through to the kitchen and utility / cloakroom. There are two reception rooms, a triple aspect lounge with windows to the front and side and a door opening to the rear garden, and a dining room to the front. The fitted kitchen is dual aspect and has a built in double oven and hob. The utility / cloakroom has a butler sink, a low level WC and space for washing machine and tumble dryer. On the first floor, bedroom one is triple aspect, bedrooms two and three both have a wash hand basin. There is a study / nursery and a bathroom fitted with a white suite. The property benefits from double glazing throughout - apart from the front door which is the original - and heating by gas to a system of hot water radiators. Set in secluded grounds set back from the road, there is a substantial driveway providing parking for several vehicles, a garage with power and light with adjoining carport. The front garden has lawn, mature plants and shrubs. The rear garden is well established with mature plants and shrubs, a generous patio area and a workshop with power and light. In our opinion this would be a great family home, set well back from the road, offering a great deal of privacy, yet just 0.8 miles to Three Bridges train station and close to local amenities and schools. We would urge a viewing to see if this could be the next property for you.

VENDOR'S COMMENTS We love Woodways. It has been a magical place for us to live in for forty four years. It is one of Crawley's historic buildings and was built by craftsmen for the well-known Montefiore family around 1880. The location, the robust house itself, the beautiful, mature garden, the privacy and the peace, together with many other advantages we enjoy at Woodways have got to be highly desirable.
