The Property - This very attractive Garden City home, originally known as Briarside Cottage, is an authentic design by Parker & Unwin, dating from 1903/1905. It has been well updated whilst fully retaining its original ‘Arts & Crafts‘ charm and features including an inglenook style fireplace to the sitting room, bay windows with window seats, very fine internal doors with their original latches and built-in cupboards including one with baker‘s drawers.

The house provides spacious and versatile family accommodation with five reception rooms plus a conservatory on the ground floor. The excellent modern kitchen has solid quartz worktops. Two of the five bedrooms have en suite bathrooms, with the remainder being served by the family bathroom, which has both bath and shower. There is a very useful studio or study on the top floor.

The detached garage/annexe block is ideal as accommodation for dependent relatives or as office space for those working from home. The house benefits from gas fired central heating and the annexe has electric storage heaters.

The Outside - The house stands in a fine plot extending to just over half an acre, set centrally in its gardens and well screened from the road by tall beech hedges, mature trees and specimen conifers, providing almost total privacy to the whole. There are extensive lawns, herbaceous beds and borders, ornamental shrubs, including magnolias, fruit trees, raised walled beds, pergola and paved patios. A raised deck adjoins the front of the house. Large timber shed and aluminium frame greenhouse.

The plot measures some 185‘ by 143‘ (56.3m x 43,56m) overall and backs on to one of the spinneys which run through this part of the town, in this case an area of green open space extending to about an acre and a half. There is a gate from the rear of the garden to the spinney.

The Location - The house is conveniently located on the favoured south side of the town, just three-quarters of a mile from the town centre and within a mile of the mainline railway station. Letchworth Garden City is on the Cambridge to London Kings Cross mainline with services running regularly throughout the day. The fastest service to London Kings Cross takes just 28 minutes with Cambridge 26 minutes away in the other direction. Junction 9 on the A1(M) is only 1.8 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. The town provides excellent schools, shops, leisure facilities and green open spaces. St Francis College, St Christopher School, Highfield School, St Thomas Moore RC Primary School and the Lordship Farm Primary School are all within a radius of about half a mile.
