The house stands in a fine plot of nearly a fifth of an acre, measuring about 195' by 43' (59.5m x 13m) overall. It sits some 35' (10.75m) back from the road behind a picket fence with the front garden laid to an expansive gravelled driveway providing excellent off-street parking and leading to the attached Garage. Well stocked shrub borders.

The rear garden is approximately 129' (39.35m) in length and laid to lawn with paved patio, herbaceous borders and ornamental shrubs and trees. Garden shed.

The Location

Highfield is located on the favoured south-west side of the town, just three-quarters of a mile from the town centre and a mile from Letchworth Garden City mainline railway station. There are regular services to London Kings Cross throughout the day, the fastest of which take only 27 minutes; Cambridge is 28 minutes away in the opposite direction. Junction 9 on the A1(M) is 2.3 miles away by car. The house is also less than 2 miles from Hitchin railway station and just 2.3 miles from Hitchin town centre.

Designed in the early 20th Century to combine the benefits of town and country, Letchworth Garden City was the world’s first example of this concept and succeeds to this day in achieving its aim and the town provides excellent schools, shops, open spaces and leisure facilities.
