The Property

This fine example of an early Garden City home was designed in 1913 by W A Gray, an architect from Cambridge, within the parameters laid down by Parker & Unwin, the architects supervising the development of the new town. It displays some particularly fine examples of the key features of the Arts & Crafts style adopted for the Garden City; the oak double doors from the hall to both the sitting room and dining room are particularly noteworthy. All the oak internal doors retain their original oak latches. Another charming original feature is the built-in settle adjoining the fireplace in the sitting room.

The house retains its original leaded-light windows and benefits from gas fired central heating.

The Outside

The house stands in a fine plot of over a quarter of an acre with a wide frontage extending to about 160' (49m) and an overall depth of around 116' (35.3m). The front garden is separated from the tree-lined avenue by a neat hedge and laid to lawn. At the left of the plot, the driveway provides off-street parking and leads to the detached garage. Garden Shed.

The gardens extend to either side of the house leading to the private rear garden which is some 75' (23m) in depth and laid to lawn with crazy-paved patio, herbaceous beds and borders and ornamental shrubs and conifers. Greenhouse. The garden is screened by mature trees to the rear.

The Location

Lytton Avenue is a highly regarded residential road on the favoured south side of the town, just a quarter of a mile from the main shopping centre. Letchworth Garden City mainline railway station is only half a mile away. The fastest service to London Kings Cross takes just 27 minutes and Cambridge is 28 minutes away in the other direction. Junction 9 on the A1(M) is only 1.6 miles away by car.

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 and leisure facilities.
