The Property - Surprisingly, this pair of period cottages, believed to date from the 17th Century are not listed. However, they are regarded as of heritage interest by the Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation, by whom they are offered for sale.

The cottages retain some fine period features including exposed timbers, fireplaces, some of the windows and a Georgian entrance door.

The Outside - The cottages occupy an attractive sloping plot of approaching a fifth of an acre and measuring about 135' by 76' (41.04m x 23.08m) overall. it adjoins open meadowland to the north and St Nicholas' Church to the south. The plot offers considerable scope for the keen gardener.

A driveway provides good OFF-STREET PARKING.

The Location - Delightfully located on the very north-east edge of Letchworth Garden City, this pair of cottages overlook open meadowland to one side and Norton's historic parish church of St Nicholas to the other and yet are only a mile and a half from the town centre and mainline railway centre. Letchworth Garden City is on the Cambridge to London Kings Cross train line with the fastest service to London Kings Cross taking just 27 minutes and Cambridge 28 minutes away in the other direction. Junction 9 on the A1(M) is just 2.8 miles away by car and Junction 10 is just over 2 miles.

Designed in the early 20th Century to combine the benefits of town and country, Letchworth Garden City was the worlds first example of this concept and succeeds to this day in achieving its aim. The town provides excellent schools, shops and leisure facilities. Norton Primary School and the Three Horseshoes public house are both within 200 yards.
