Looking for a new home before Easter? Crest Nicholson’s three-bedroom detached ‘Standen’ property at its beautiful Kilnwood Vale development is perfect for first time buyers or those looking for a family home.
There are just three of this house type currently available in the first phase of homes at this flourishing new community in the sought-after area of Faygate, near Crawley, West Sussex.
The Standen has the Arts & Craft look found throughout the neighbourhood, with a tall chimney, overhanging eaves and asymmetrical gables with ‘catslide’ roofs. The style of the property pays homage to the traditional buildings of West Sussex, giving the house an immediate sense of belonging to its surroundings.
Upon entering the Standen, you step into the large hallway. To the right sits the ample 183 sq ft kitchen/dining room. The combined space represents the modern family’s appetite for open plan living which has been increasing in popularity over the past decade with the number of kitchen/diners soaring by 50 per cent.
The fully-fitted kitchen is of the highest specification with Bosch appliances throughout, with an A rated single electric oven, integrated dishwasher and fridge/freezer, as well as a three speed feature chimney hood.
Soft close doors and draws add to the contemporary feel, alongside Spacia by Amtico flooring, low energy Photonstar downlighters and a Rangemaster 1½ bowl stainless steel sink with drainer and Hansgrohe mixer tap.
Across the hall is the 172 sq ft lounge area, with double doors leading to the garden. There is ample room for two sofas to relax on for a chat or to sit back and watch TV. The room comes pre-installed with TV/FM, Sky+ and BT points.
Upstairs, the 128 sq ft main bedroom also comes pre-installed with the same connections to ensure your technology is up and running in no time. It also benefits from fitted wardrobes and a luxurious en-suite bathroom with fully-fitted Roca bathroom suite with contemporary Porcelenosa wall tiles.
Bedroom two is the larger of the remaining two rooms at 96 sq ft, with more than enough room to house a double bed with bedside cabinets, while bedroom three measures 80 sq ft and would make the perfect guest or child’s bedroom.
These days, everyone wants to keep their utility bills to the minimum and do their bit towards a more sustainable lifestyle. With that in mind, The Standen meets Sustainable Homes Level 3 as a minimum.
This means each property includes incredibly high standards of insulation and ventilation, low energy, energy efficient, and low water use appliances throughout, giving you a healthy and comfortable living environment, as well as easier maintenance and lower utility bills.
Kilnwood Vale brings together all of the desirable elements of contemporary, sustainable living in a supremely well connected location. In addition to the residential development, there are also plans for a supermarket, neighbourhood centre, featuring a community centre, as well as local shops, health centre, a primary school, nursery and library.
Kilnwood Vale is situated between Faygate and the busy town of Crawley, which is halfway between London and Brighton, and provides residents with all the shops, leisure facilities, schools and transport links people need.
All of these benefits have combined to see Faygate quickly become a sought-after commuter hamlet which perfectly balances a rural family retreat lifestyle and a commutable location.

Prices for the three-bedroom Standen home start at £369,950. For more information visit or call 0845 894 7873.
