Feature Friday - Meadow Way

This fine early Garden City home dates from 1906 and was designed by C M Crickmer, one of the leading architects working on the project.


The family home displays many of the attractive features typical of his style and has been sympathetically extended and updated. It now provides excellent four-bedroom family accommodation with an outstanding modern kitchen opening to the dining room. The sitting room boasts an impressive inglenook style fireplace and there are two further reception rooms.


Upstairs, the master bedroom has built in wardrobes and an en-suite shower room. The other three double bedrooms are served by the family bathroom, which has both corner bath and shower cubicle.


This stunning home stands in a fine plot of approaching a third of an acre, measuring approximately 207' by 70' (63m x 21.5m) overall. The neat open plan front garden is laid to lawn with herbaceous beds and ornamental shrubs and trees. The gravel driveway provides off-street parking and leads to the detached garage.


The south facing rear garden is some 164' (50m) in length and laid to lawn with crazy paved patio, herbaceous beds and borders, ornamental pond with adjoining rockery and ornamental shrubs, trees and conifers. Timber Summerhouse 15'9" x 12'6" (4.8m x 3.8m) plus veranda, two timber garden sheds, aluminium greenhouse and, for the children, probably the best tree-house in the world.


Meadow Way is a highly regarded residential road just to the south of the town centre, just off Broadway. No 42 is only half a mile from the mainline railway station and even less from the main shopping centre. 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 28 minutes away in the other direction. Junction 9 on the A1(M) is just a mile and a half 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 is within half a mile, the St Christopher School three-quarters and the St Thomas Moore RC Primary School and the Highfield School are both within a mile.
