This individual detached house enjoys a highly desirable location in one of the most sought-after residential roads in the town. A much loved family home, the property would now benefit from some updating and provides considerable scope for improvement.
The spacious and versatile accommodation includes three reception rooms and five bedrooms.
The house is heated by electric storage heaters and benefits from double-glazed windows.
The house stands in a plot measuring approximately 105' by 56' (32m x 17m) overall, screened from the road by a tall beech hedge, and the front garden is laid to lawn with herbaceous border and ornamental shrubs and trees. The concrete driveway provides off-street parking, augmented by an area of crazy paving, and leads to the car port and garage.
A side garden leads to the rear garden, which faces principally south and is some 49' (15m) in length. It is laid to lawn with crazy paved patio, herbaceous borders and ornamental shrubs, conifers and trees. Timber garden shed.
Located on the favoured south side of the town, Sollershott West is, without doubt, one of the pre-eminent residential roads in Letchworth Garden City. It lies less than a mile to the south of the town centre and just a mile from the town's mainline railway station. The fastest rail service to London Kings Cross takes just 28 minutes and Cambridge is 26 minutes away in the other direction. Junction 9 on the A1(M) is 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 and the town provides excellent schools, shops, open spaces and leisure facilities. St Francis College is just a quarter of a mile distant and both St Christopher School and the Highfield School are within half-a-mile.
