Victoria Road, West Green, CrawleyRef: 23543
Built circa 1760 Smugglers Cottage is noted as one of the oldest houses in Crawley. Originally known as Pond Cottage due to its proximity to a long since removed water feature, is described by the local council as being of "local historical interest". In spite of this, the property is not listed so you can alter it as you please. Situated in Victoria Road, Smugglers Cottage is full of period features and characterful charm and is in a quiet, yet extremely convenient location, in the centre of Crawley. The original house was accompanied some years later by the addition of stabling for cattle. This was later converted and attached to provide a delightful living space sometime during the 1980s.
This detached house is tucked away behind a gated entrance offering a private setting with off-street parking for multiple cars; a wraparound garden with modern hard landscaping; bespoke seating area and outdoor kitchen; as well as a recently completed garden room; offering the ideal space for working from home.
Internally the property is surprisingly spacious with an entrance hallway ideal for storing your shoes and coats after you return from a walk from the nearby Goffs Park. The lounge is beautifully presented as the perfect place to relax in front of the wood-burning stove after a hard day at work. Any budding chef would be proud to own this stylish re-modelled kitchen/dining room where you can knock up a culinary treat whilst friends sip a glass of wine in front of the open working fireplace. On the opposite side of the house, there is annexe-style accommodation with a cosy lounge, bedroom, and wet room. The accommodation is extremely versatile and would be ideal for a teenager who wants their own space or could be a great investment easily bring in circa £700pcm rental income. On the first floor three bedrooms with what is believed original Oak flooring and a bathroom suite. Externally to the rear there is a recently built stylish Garden room which can also be used as a study or workspace.
Smugglers Cottage is central location and is 0.5 miles from Crawley Train Station which has great links to London and Brighton. Also, for families with kids both West Green Primary school and St Wilfrids secondary school are both under 10 minute walk from the property and both score good on the Ofsted report.
