The Property

This attractive detached house, dating from 1953, has been very well updated and extended to form an exceptional family home. The house has real Garden City character with the dining and family rooms retaining their original fireplaces, whilst the new sitting room also has a fireplace. The original parquet flooring extends through the entrance hall, dining room and family room. In addition to the sitting room, the ground floor boasts a new kitchen, utility room and cloakroom/WC. Upstairs the original bedrooms are augmented by an impressive master bedroom with an en suite bathroom and a very well appointed family shower room. There is oak flooring to the first floor.

The house benefits from sealed unit double-glazing and gas fired central heating.

The Outside

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.
