Kilnwood Vale resident Patricia Wilkin benefits from new build home

Patricia Wilkins, Kilnwood Vale
When it came to moving house Kilnwood Vale resident Patricia Wilkin was looking for an easy solution. “I was keen to redecorate my old home” recalled Patricia, “but my son suggested I look at buying a new build house, which would be ready decorated and have no on-going maintenance issues to make life easier for me. It was as simple as that!”. 

Previously living in Twyford, just between Maidenhead and Reading, Patricia was not only keen to live in a new build home but wanted a central location close to Gatwick Airport, with award-winning house builder Crest Nicholson’s Kilnwood Vale development offering the perfect location. “I have a lot of family who live abroad and I am frequently passing through Gatwick, so it was important that I’d have easy access to the airport”.    

Kilnwood Vale is a collection of traditionally designed two, three, four, and five bedroom homes in the sought after town of Faygate between Horsham and Crawley. The flourishing community of new homes is surrounded by open countryside, and is perfect for those looking to escape London, to downsize or to accommodate a growing family. 

Patricia who lives in a three-bedroom home at Kilnwood Vale commented, “I had previously looked at a few other developments but Kilnwood Vale really stood out for me. I loved the development and property, it had a lovely look and feel about it. I’ve been living here for two years this month, and aside from the house my favourite part of the property is the south facing garden, which has a stunning outlook”. 

Located in Faygate, Kilnwood Vale is just three miles away from Crawley town centre and four miles from Horsham. It is also benefits from excellent commutability to London and Portsmouth due to its close proximity to Crawley train station. “Crawley is a fantastic place for shopping, there are many shops and the people are lovely” said Patricia. “Though I am most looking forward to the shops and other local amenities that are planned in phase two of the development here at Kilnwood Vale.”  

If you’re looking for a new home, Kilnwood Vale features two bedroom duplexes, as well as four and five bedroom homes available from £344, 950. For more information, pop into the on-site sales and marketing suite, open daily between 10 am and 5pm or visit
