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.
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.
