It is one of the first developments in the UK to benefit from the Government’s Get Britain Building programme, and Crest Nicholson is proud to be involved. When complete, it will provide homes for 2,500 households, with a variety of architecture and size that will suit a very wide range of buyers.

Kilnwood vale is planned to provide family homes and homes for smaller households including downsizers and those who want a lock up and leave lifestyle.

Crest Nicholson is offering a combination of almost two hundred homes, including 2, 3, 4 and 5 bedroom houses together with a smaller proportion of 1 and 2 bedroom apartments, all reaching its customary very high standards.

The apartments and smaller houses are perfect if you are looking to get on the property ladder, and it’s a wonderful place to take the first step. Anyone familiar with the traditional buildings of West Sussex will recognise the architectural influences at Kilnwood Vale, and these are used to outstanding effect. Crest Nicholson designers have taken their cue from the Arts and Crafts style, giving the properties well-loved details such as overhanging eaves, tall brick chimney stacks, porches, render and timber details, and asymmetrical gables with ‘catslide’ roofs.

Local Information

Leisure Facilities

A new railway station is planned, on the Crawley to Horsham line, an important feature in this commuter heartland. Access to existing main roads will also be provided.

You can see that Kilnwood Vale is thoroughly contemporary in concept, but it also draws on the traditions of the Garden City Movement of the 19th century, with a tree-lined boulevard as its central spine and a wealth of green courtyard and corridors in between the buildings.
It is designed to be a very pleasant and neighbourly place to live, making the most of its surrounding country views, where residents can share the benefits of a high quality of life. Kilnwood Vale adheres to today’s sustainable principles too, meaning that daily essentials can be easily reached without total reliance on the car. The natural environment has been carefully integrated into the overall plan, and individual homes include features to encourage eco-friendly, low-carbon living.

Close to the excellent public transport connections, centres of employment and leisure that characterise this part of the south east, Kilnwood Vale is definitely a case of right development, right place, right time.

Many of us have a wish-list of what we would like on our doorstep. And for most people, the items on the list are likely to include well-tended open space, convenient shops and healthcare, safe places for children to play, places for the community and local clubs to meet.

For families, good local schools are essential of course; as is frequent and convenient public transport for everyone. If there are lovely views and spots for nature to flourish, so much the better. Kilnwood Vale will deliver all of this and so much more. It will be a sustainable new neighbourhood where residents are involved in their community and share its many benefits, enjoying a high quality of life. With places for sport, play and wildlife, residents will be able to meet, join in and get to know one another.

The beautifully designed housing will be set within a generous amount of open space – nearly 120 acres of it, edged by ancient woodland – and this will be key to its success as a community. The Gateway Village Green will be a main feature, and the wider development is to be criss-crossed by footpaths, cycle paths and a bridleway, providing easy links into neighbouring Faygate and Buchan Country Park. Kilnwod Vale will be a place to feel proud of – somewhere you will want to stay.

The planned neighbourhood centre will be the heart of local life, where you will be able to shop for everyday items, make use of the library, or meet friends in the pub/restaurant. There’s also provision for a nursery, a multi-purpose community centre, a GP surgery to supplement the existing healthcare facilities of Crawley, and a care home for the elderly. The neighbourhood centre also has space allocated for a supermarket, for your every day amenities.

Crawley is your point of contact for leisure such as shopping, the cinema, dining out and nightlife as well as for sources of work, business and healthcare. It’s a dynamic and busy town, benefitting from its position between London, Brighton and Gatwick.

It also has a strategic location in the ‘Gatwick Diamond’ an area designated as a world class, internationally recognised business location. With Gatwick Airport a mere 10 minutes’ drive away, Kilnwood Vale is an ideal place to live if you work there or in one of the many high technology businesses that surround it.

Local Shopping

Crawley’s County Mall is one of the south east’s leading shopping destinations and has over 90 high street retail brands, a very good food court, and plentiful parking. The town also boasts a a multiplex cinema and modern leisure centre, K2, whose facilities include a 50 metre swimming pool, climbing wall and athletics track. The Hawth Theatre is regarded as one of the major theatres outside London and Crawley’s energetic night life attracts thousands of pleasure seekers from miles around.


A new primary school is also planned for the development. However, until it is built, parents can choose from the primary and secondary schools within the vicinity of Kilnwood Vale. Some of most highly rated are: Northgate Primary, Our Lady Queen of Heaven Primary, Milton Mount Primary, West Green Primary, and Hazelwick School for secondary age pupils.

Transport Links

Good public transport links are integral to Kilnwood vale. a network of pedestrian and cycleways provides direct, high quality links to the surrounding areas, and the development is also on Crawley’s excellent fastway bus network.

This has dedicated bus lanes to strategic points such as local stations, business districts, Crawley town centre and the Gatwick terminals, and fares can be paid using a top-up smartcard. If you work in Crawley or at Gatwick Airport, the Fastway will probably be the best way to get there.

Kilnwood Vale is located in south east England’s commuter heartland, giving a wide choice of train and road links to further destinations. The nearest railway stations are Ifield and Faygate, both approximately a mile away, and on the line to major interchanges and destinations including Gatwick Airport, Redhill, East Croydon, Clapham Junction, London Bridge and Victoria. Brighton, Horsham, East Grinstead, Burgess Hill and Guildford can also be reached easily by train.
