Three Bridges area guide

Started in 1952, Three Bridges now has a population of over 5,600 residents living in some 2,300 households. Three Bridges was originally a small village which grew with the development of the railway line. It merged with other villages in Crawley and Ifield to become Crawley new town.

Three Bridges is a mainline station on the London to Brighton line. It's also on the route of the Fastway bus service which links the area with Gatwick and Horley.

There is a lot of ex-local authority housing in Three Bridges and the typical property is a three bedroom terraced house.

Houses don't come up for sale as often as some other areas - and when they do there is always a strong demand. The neighbourhood is fortunate to house some of Crawley's older buildings, with some beautiful Victorian houses situated near to the station.

Undoubtedly, the area's popularity derives from a combination of Hazelwick Secondary School (Ofsted), the mainline station, and the neighbourhood's close proximity to the Town Centre.

The rental market is very buoyant which has seen a large number of two bedroom modern apartments being built, most recently in Pembroke Park. Average rent for a two bedroom apartment in modern developments is around £1,100 PCM and there is a strong demand.

A 3 bedroom terraced house would cost you around £310,000 and a typical 4 bedroom detached house around £500,000.
