The Property - This individual early Garden City bungalow was designed in 1928 for F E Backett Esq by John C Tickle, an architect based in Lytton Avenue, Letchworth and the design was approved by Barry Parker, one of the original two lead architects on the Garden City project.

The bungalow retains much of its character and many of its original features, including the very attractive leaded light windows. The fireplace in the sitting room, although not original, is of an appropriate high quality design.

Although the property now benefits from gas fired central heating and a modern fitted kitchen area to the kitchen/dining room, there is considerable scope for further updating and improvement.

The Outside - The bungalow stands in a good plot measuring about 105' by 60' (31.96m x 18.24m) overall. The front garden is screened by hedges and laid to lawn with ornamental tree and conifers. A single gate opens to the tarmac path leading to the front door and double wrought iron gates open to the tarmac driveway which provides off-street parking and leads to the attached garage.

Gates to either side of the bungalow lead to the south facing rear garden which is some 53' (16.3m) in length and laid to lawn with paved patio, herbaceous beds and borders and ornamental shrubs and conifers. Shed and Workshop.

The Location - Whitethorn Lane is pleasantly located in the favoured south side of the town on the edge of the popular Lordship area. It is less than a mile from the town centre and just a mile from Letchworth Garden City mainline railway station. The fastest 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 only just over a mile 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 the town provides excellent schools, shops and leisure facilities. The highly regarded Lordship Farm School is only a third of a mile away.
