Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This is a favourably sized, Freehold grade II listed four bedroom detached home situated in the first ever Garden City of Letchworth.

Woodside Cottage is a text book example of the 'arts and crafts' era having been designed in 1906 by architects Bennett & Bidwell. Period character is themed throughout the property including original wooden floorboards, latch doors and original quarry floor tiles.

The property is ideally located with only a short walk to the town centre and mainline train station offering fast and frequent services to London Kings Cross taking less than thirty minutes. The town centre is less than one mile away with many amenities including high street stores, shops, restaurants and bars. Famed for its natural maturity the town also benefits from Norton Common nature reserve, a fantastic sixty three acre space perfect for picnics and walking, which is less than a two minute walk from the property. There is also a local convenience store and parade of shops within a 5 minute walk if you do not want to venture into town.

The property is set back from the main road with screening of mature hedging and trees to all 4 sides providing complete privacy. Access is via a gravel drive providing plenty of parking and leads to a good size garage.

Downstairs of the property works around the light hallway with its own character including the original quarry tiling. Central to the downstairs is the lounge with a lovely view to the generous quarter acre sized garden and mature orchard, as well as access to the side veranda. Perfect for morning breakfast or afternoon tea. The lounge is one of two reception rooms both of which have feature fireplaces.

The second reception room is the substantial dining room which again takes advantage of a view to the rear garden and is perfectly positioned next to the kitchen. A number of cupboards also provide ample room for storage.

The adjacent kitchen is well finished with a Belfast sink, granite worktops and quarry tile flooring. As part of its character the kitchen has its own walk in larder a perfect means to create clutter free work surfaces.

The family bathroom is downstairs of a generous size and includes an original roll top bath, separate shower cubicle, wc, hand basin and heated towel rail.

The wooden staircase leads to a spacious landing and a well-balanced bedroom arrangement. Three of the four bedrooms are doubles in size with the master bedroom dominating by just that bit more. The fourth bedroom a single, was originally a similar size to the others but has been separated to accommodate an upstairs cloakroom.

One of the best features of Woodside Cottage is the garden space. A magnificent plot of a quarter of an acre, mainly laid to lawn but with mature orchard containing a variety of fruits including, eating and cooking apples, Victoria plums and 2 variety of pear. The orchard is screened by mature Hazelnut trees and hedgerows full of Blackberries. In Spring/Summer, the orchard bursts into colour with multicolour Primroses and flowers.

1. There is recently lapsed planning for a significant extension to the rear of the property which can be re-submitted or changed to suit as required.

This is an already well-proportioned family home but has vast potential for a new owner to stamp their own mark. We highly recommend viewing this much loved home. Please call Fine & Country, Hitchin to arrange your appointment.
