Lane & Bennetts are pleased to offer this quite delightful original early garden city cottage, featured in the 1905 exhibition by the pioneering architects Messrs Parker & Unwin. Sympathetically extended on the ground floor and with the addition of an enclosed entrance porch this charming grade II listed freehold cottage retains many original features and is beautifully presented in an arts & crafts style.

The comfortable lounge features a nearly-new wood burning Eco-stove, with views of the "Village" green to front, whilst the extended fitted kitchen diner enjoys a vista of the landscaped rear garden and spinney behind. There is a useful rear lobby, and the bathroom is of generous size, with a four piece suite and separately plumbed shower. Three well appointed bedrooms sit on the first floor. There is ample storage within the property. There are no parking restrictions at the property, and off road parking could easily be added subject to planning. The quintessential cottage garden comes with specimen planting and shrubbery, a herb patch and small pond overlooked by a small terrace for afternoon tea!

The location of this pretty property is key; set back at the head of the horseshoe shaped green, it is just a 12 minute walk to the town & station with all its amenities, as well the attractive Howard gardens. Sought after schools are also within an easy walk.  Leisure & sports interests are also well catered for as within a mile you can choose between Letchworth Garden City's renowned golf club, Letchworth Tennis club, the Letchworth Cricket & Hockey clubs and Nuffield Health gym & spa.

The town centre boasts a four screen cinema and theatre as well as an excellent range of eateries and drinking establishments, together with a wide range of attractions including museums, art galleries, brewery, 50m Outdoor Lido - nestled in the beautiful Norton Common, open green spaces, parks and gardens, yet only 29 minutes from Kings Cross & St. Pancras, 28 minutes to Cambridge, whilst the A1(M) is a few minutes’ drive, and London Luton Airport 25 minutes away. 

We certainly recommend viewing this property early, as great interest is expected! Why not take a quick preview with our 360 degree tour :
