Feature Friday - Cashio Lane, Letchworth Garden City

This distinguished detached home dates from the early days of the Garden City and retains much of its original charm and character. The influence of the 'Arts & Crafts' movement is evident throughout, especially in the fireplaces and a fine built-in corner cupboard.


The accommodation is particularly generous on the ground floor with three large reception rooms. Particularly attractive features of the house are the two large first floor balconies, the largest of which at 26'9" (8.14m) in length and could better be described as a sun deck or terrace.


The property stands some 60' (18m) back and well screened from the road in an outstanding plot extending to half an acre. The beautiful mature gardens measure approximately 203' by 109' (62m x 33.2m) overall and are laid to extensive lawns with brick patio, herbaceous beds and borders, neatly clipped box hedges and standards, large ornamental pond with decking walkway, arbour, fruit trees, ornamental shrubs and numerous fine specimen trees including beech, copper beech, cedar, pines and firs. Double gates open to the driveway which provides good off-street parking and leads to the garage and adjoining outbuilding.


Cashio Lane is a highly regarded residential road in the sought-after Norton area on the north-east side of the town. Yoxford is just a mile from the town centre and less than a mile and a quarter from the mainline railway station. Letchworth Garden City is on the London Kings Cross to Cambridge mainline with the fastest services to London Kings Cross taking just 27 minutes and to whilst Cambridge is 28 minutes. It is also just a 6 minute walk from the nearest Tesco Express, 7 minutes from the local shop/Post Office and a 10 minute walk from the Three Horseshoes pub, Norton primary school and Norton parish church. 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 shopping, schools, leisure facilities and great open spaces. The 63 acre open space of Norton Common is within half a mile.
