Feature Friday - Baldock Road, Letchworth Garden City

The week’s Feature Friday property is an outstanding example of an authentic early Garden City semi-detached home.


Dating from 1908 retains all the charm of its period with lofty ceilings, gracious entrance hall and landing with fireplaces to the principal reception rooms, the one in the sitting room having a log burning stove.


The sitting and dining rooms still have their original parquet flooring and elsewhere there is extensive use of oak, natural floorboards and ceramic tiling.


The house stands in a fine plot of over a quarter of an acre, set 50' (15.15m) back from the road screened by an established hedge. The front garden is laid to lawn with herbaceous borders, ornamental shrubs and an impressive, mature silver birch tree. The driveway provides off-street parking for five or six cars and leads via double gates to the large recently erected timber and tile detached garage set to the rear of the house.


The plot measures about 317' by 38' (96.8m x 11.65m) overall with the southerly facing rear garden making up 225' (68.6m) of the length and laid to lawns with a Travertine marble paved patio, herbaceous beds and borders, rose bushes, weeping silver birch, specimen conifer, pergola, raised ornamental pond and kitchen garden with raised vegetable beds and soft fruit cages. The crowning glory is the collection of over 30 fruit trees, including varieties of apple, pear, plum, cherry and peach.


The property is only half a mile from the town centre and within three-quarters of a mile of the mainline 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 1.6 miles away by car.
