This individual detached home has its origins in the early years of the Garden City and has evolved to provide remarkably spacious and versatile accommodation. The family room, for example, could also be used as a dressing room, nursery, study or even a fifth bedroom.
The property is particularly well suited for working from home with the two rooms on the first floor being ideal as either bedrooms or offices and the first floor suite can also have their own access from the side lobby.
Of particular note is the attractive lych gate from which the house gets its name. A feature more normally found at the entrance to a country churchyard, this is, indeed, understood to have originally graced the church in Litlington in nearby Cambridgeshire until the 1960s when it was moved to form a highly individual entrance to this fine home.
The property enjoys a supremely convenient location overlooking the renowned Spirella Biulding in the heart of the town. It is literally just around the corner from both the 63-acre Norton Common and the town centre and mainline railway station, all of which are well within a quarter of a mile. 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 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. The town provides excellent schools, shops, leisure facilities and green open spaces, of which Norton Common is only the most notable.
The house is set in a plot measuring some 65' by 64' (20m x 19.7m) overall. The lych gate frames the pathway to the front door and the tarmac driveway to the right provides good off-street parking and leads to the two garages. The house is screened from the road by a hedge and the front garden is attractively planted with herbaceous borders and ornamental shrubs, conifers and trees.
The gardens continue to the left-hand side of the house and for approximately 19' (5.74m) to the rear with a paved terrace, herbaceous beds and ornamental shrubs, conifers and trees.
