AREA INFORMATION Ifield is a former village and now a neighbourhood within Crawley located on the west side of town. Open countryside is close by as is the Ifield Water Mill and Mill Pond which was built in 1683, rebuilt in 1817 and recently restored. The Mill Pond has a rich bird community throughout the year and is a great place for relaxation. Ifield Village Conservation area off Rusper Road which includes the 13th century church of St Margaret, The Barn Theatre, the Plough Inn and picturesque listed cottages. Ifield has a parade of shops with an Indian restaurant and another pub, while on Ifield Green you'll find The Royal Oak pub, hairdressers and local convenience store. The area offers two primary schools, a secondary school and a special needs school. There is a golf club, a cricket club and recreational park with a playground. Metrobus connects the area with Crawley town centre and beyond and the A23 / M23 is easily accessible. We love everything that Ifield has to offer!
VENDOR'S COMMENTS I bought the property as a family home, with lots of off street parking available for five cars, and the proximity of the two local country pubs. The Old Barn Theatre also has many enjoyable performances for evenings or days out with the children. I have enjoyed the countryside walks which are just on the door step, and the local community and neighbours are fantastic. We are moving on to a property that offers land in excess of two acres, but will be popping back to the area for the local community events.
