No 97 forms part of an imposing Garden City property on the corner of Green Lane and Norton Road. It has just been the subject of a thorough scheme of refurbishment, updating and improvement. It provides remarkably spacious and versatile accommodation distributed over three floors with considerable charm and Garden City character. Therte are two large reception rooms, a kitchen/breakfast room, laundry/utility room and cloakroom/WC on the ground floor. On the first floor are three double bedrooms and a well-appointed bathroom with a fourth double bedroom and large loft on the top floor.
The house benefits from sealed unit double-glazing and gas fired central heating.
The property is available for rent unfurnished.
The house is set back some 30' (9.28m) from the road and screened by a tall laurel hedge. The garden is to the front of the house and approximately 105' (32.9m) in width. It is laid to an extensive lawn with a block paved forecourt providing good off-street parking. A single gate and an adjoining pair of gates open from the rear of the forecourt to a block paved courtyard affording generous additional parking space and leading to the detached double garage 16' x 15'11" (4.87m x 4.86m).
On the corner of Green Lane and Norton Road, the house is located in the popular Norton area on the north-eastern corner of Letchworth. Norton was one of the three original villages absorbed into the Garden City. No 97 is about a mile and a quarter from the town centre and mainline railway station. Letchworth Garden City is on the London King's Cross to Cambridge mainline and offers regular services throughout the day. The fastest to London King's Cross take just 28 minutes and Cambridge is 26 minutes away in the other direction. Junction 10 on the A1(M) is 2.4 miles away by car and Junction 9 is a 2.6 mile drive.
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. It provides excellent shops, schools, green open spaces and other leisure facilities. The 63-acre Norton Common is just over half a mile away and Norton parish church, primary school and the Three Horseshoes pub are all within a third of a mile.
