Feature Friday - Sollershott West, Letchworth Garden City


This distinguished detached house was one of Letchworth Garden City's original town villas and was built in 1909 for Edward Grubb, a prominent Quaker, teacher, pacifist and writer of hymns.



The villa would originally have had a name; sadly this has been lost over time, but the house retains much of its very attractive period character. In more recent times, the house has been considerably extended, completely in keeping with the original style, and now provides a very spacious and versatile family home.


The outstanding modern kitchen/dining room is particularly impressive and perfectly complements the gracious sitting room and the two other reception rooms. The original kitchen is now a large utility room. Two of the five double bedrooms have en suite shower rooms.



The house stands in a fine plot extending to nearly half an acre and is set well back from the road behind a front garden laid to lawn with a gravelled driveway providing extensive off-street parking and leading to the attached double garage, which has a useful mezzanine storage platform.


The splendid south facing rear garden is some 126' (38.3m) in length and is laid to extensive lawns with a stone flagged patio, herbaceous beds and borders, ornamental shrubs and fine mature specimen trees. Immediately to the rear of the garden is the three-acre open space of Sollershott Spinney, an area of open meadow and mature trees shared exclusively by the residents of the properties which adjoin it.


Sollershott West is one of the premier residential roads in Letchworth Garden City and located on the favoured south side of the town. No 9 is conveniently located just three-quarters of mile from the town centre and less than a mile from the mainline railway station. Letchworth Garden City is on the Cambridge to London Kings Cross mainline with the fastest service to London Kings Cross taking just 28 minutes and Cambridge 26 minutes away in the other direction. Junction 9 on the A1(M) is 2.1 miles away by car.
