The Property - The first owner of this very attractive detached house when it was built in 1930 was a lady from Wales, who gave the property its name which means ‘home‘ in Welsh. The name has proved very appropriate as both the current owners and their predecessor each called it home for thirty years or more, so this will be only the second time the house has been sold in the past eighty years, a sure testament to how pleasant a place it is to live.

The house, designed by C M Crickmer and A Foxley, two of the leading architects of the Garden City, has the real character of the project and has been extended, updated and improved to provide a spacious family home. The master bedroom has an en suite wet room with shower and the three remaining bedrooms are served by a well-appointed family bathroom. The flexible ground floor accommodation provides three reception rooms, two conservatories and a modern kitchen/breakfast room, complemented by a utility room.

The house benefits from leaded light double-glazed windows and gas fired central heating.

The Outside - The house stands in a fine plot of over a third of an acre, set some 52‘ (15.89m) back from the road and screened by a tall hedge, The front garden is laid to lawn with well-stocked herbaceous borders. The gravel driveway provides ample off-street parking and leads to the attached garage.

Gates to either side of the house side lead to the rear garden, which is approximately 138‘ (42m) in length and is an absolute delight and beautifully laid out to a design by a Chelsea Gold Medal winner. A paved patio adjoining the rear of the house gives way to shaped lawns, herbaceous beds and borders, wildlife pond with waterfall, ornamental shrubs including Japanese acers, raised beds, roses and fruit trees. A particular feature of the garden is the collection of specimen trees, some original, but most planted by the present owners and including oak, sweet chestnut, silver birch, alder, whitebeam, malus and a golden Cappadocian maple. The rear portion of the plot is given over to a wildlife garden area.

A substantial timber workshop/store measuring 19‘ by 10‘ (6m x 3m) is supplemented by a timber garden shed.

The plot measures some 238‘ by 63‘ (72.6m x 19.17m) overall and backs on to and has access to the private Sollershott Common Green, which extends to some three acres.

The Location - Set in the favoured south side of the town, ‘Cartref‘ is just three-quarters of a mile from the town centre and only a mile from 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 2 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, and St Thomas Moore RC Primary School are all within a radius of half a mile.
