Pound Hill and Worth are two of Crawley’s most popular neighbourhoods, located north east of Crawley town centre, and both ideally located for commuters. Gatwick Airport is a short distance by both road and rail via Three Bridges BR station, as is the M23.
The neighbourhoods combine to make up one of Crawley’s largest areas, with a population of almost 15,000 and over 6,000 households.
Property here is varied and highly sought-after. Young professionals will be able to find small flats and apartments, but there is also an array of larger semi-detached and detached housing. The average cost of a property in Pound Hill and Worth is around the £310,000 mark. Detached homes are likely to sell for closer to £450,000, while the average terraced home is likely to fetch around £260,000.
Pound Hill is traditionally slightly cheaper than neighbouring Worth. However, properties on Milton Mount Avenue – one of Crawley’s best-known residential roads – often sell for between £750,000 and £1 million.
Thanks to the varied housing stock in these neighbourhoods, there is a mix of residents from families to young professionals and retirees.
Worth is home to Worth Park Gardens, a large green space which incorporates several listed buildings as well as the Crawley Croquet Club.
Residents benefit from a strong selection of local primary schools, including Pound Hill Infant and Junior School, Milton Mount County Primary School and Maidenbower Infant and Junior School.
Meanwhile, the highly regarded Hazelwick Secondary School is located just outside of Pound Hill in neighbouring Three Bridges and the Oriel High School is located in Maidenbower, just south of Worth.
