AREA INFORMATION The neighbourhood of Ifield boasts a good range of facilities including parade of shops, schooling, public house, doctors surgery, golf course and railway station. The area is located on the edge of the town and therefore open countryside is readily accessible whilst bus routes connect the area to Crawley town centre with its comprehensive range of shopping and leisure amenities. The A23 connects the area with many neighbouring towns and junctions 10 and 11 of the M23 are roughly equidistant.
VENDOR'S COMMENTS We bought the property 36 years ago, attracted by its large garden and its open outlook over Ifield Village Green and playing fields at the back. We have enjoyed growing our own fruit and vegetables here and taking walks into the farmed countryside beyond. The outdoor space has been lovely for children and grandchildren. The time has come to downsize.
