Most of Letchworth is in a conservation area which is looked after by the Heritage Foundation. This area was developed early in the history of the Garden City. In Green Lane some houses date from 1905. Common View was largely developed in 1907 and Glebe Road slightly later between 1913 and 1915. The land was originally known as Glebe Fields from which one of the roads takes its name. The area lies parallel to the original industrial area and was zoned in the master plan for residential use. The housing was built by various housing societies and contains simple workers cottages.
Today the road is a pleasant residential area with rendered cottages in a variety of hues all within easy walking distance of the town centre and the mainline railway station. It is also close to Norton Common which is a beautiful 63-acre Common and park in the heart of the town. It offers acres of unspoilt grass and woodland, tennis courts, bowling green and a 1935 lido style outdoor pool. The area was recognized in Keep Britain Tidy’s prestigious Green Flag Award scheme, the benchmark national standard for parks and green spaces.
Letchworth Garden City was planned to combine the best of ‘town and country’ living and this lovely cottage provides exactly this and is a perfect first home or investment opportunity.
