The Property - The architect of this fine example of an early Garden City detached house was Arthur A Hallam, who produced a design in 1905 for Messrs Jeffs & Edwards, which approved by Barry Parker and Raymond Unwin, the principal architects for the development of Letchworth Garden City.
A very pleasing double-fronted design, this spacious family home provides good five bedroom accommodation and retains many of its original features, including fireplaces, moulded plaster cornices and the original tiled floor to the hall, which make these authentic Garden City houses so appealing. The house benefits from part sealed unit unit double-glazed and gas fired central heating.
For those seeking even more space, the large loft offers considerable scope to provide additional bedrooms and a bathroom, subject to any necessary planning consents.
The Outside - The house stands in a fine plot of about a quarter of an acre, measuring about 198' by 51' (60.25m x 15.5m) overall. Set about 20' (6.4m) back from the road, the house is approached via a gravel in-and-out coach drive, which provides good off-street parking and leads to the Car Port and has shrub beds and borders.
The splendid west facing rear garden is about 144' (44m) in length and backs on to the 63 acre open space of Norton Common. A deck adjoins the rear of the house with steps down to an extensive lawn with herbaceous borders, ornamental trees and vegetable beds. Greenhouse.
The detached Garage is approached via the Car Port and is at present used as a workshop, store and freezer room, the double doors at the front being currently sealed.
The Location - The house is very conveniently located just to the north-east of the town centre, only half a mile from Letchworth Garden City mainline railway station and adjoining the splendid 63 acre Norton Common. The fastest rail service to London Kings Cross takes just 27 minutes and Cambridge is 28 minutes away in the other direction. Junction 9 on the A1(M) is 2 miles away by car.
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 and provides excellent schools, shops and leisure facilities.
