This very distinguished Garden City house dates from 1927. Built to a pleasing double-fronted design in cavity brickwork under a tiled roof, this fine family home retains many of its original features, including fine fireplaces in the sitting and family rooms. A dining room, open-plan to a modern kitchen, and a shower room/WC complete the ground floor.
There are four double bedrooms on the first floor, one of which leads into another room affording an excellent opportunity to create a master suite with an en suite and/or dressing room. There is also a well appointed family bathroom/WC and a separate WC.
The house benefits from uPVC double-glazed windows and gas fired central heating with a new boiler installed in 2023.
The house stands in a fine plot of approximately a quarter of an acre, measuring some 180' by 55'9" (55m x 17m) overall. A five-bar gate set in the hornbeam hedge to the front opens to a gravel forecourt and drive with herbaceous borders and providing ample off-street parking. The drive continues down the left-hand side of the house to a base measuring about 43'6" x 17' (13.3m x 5.2m) laid for a replacement garage and workshop/store.
The impressive west facing rear garden is some 134'6" in length and laid to lawn with paved patio, an area of decking (currently with hot tub), herbaceous borders, ornamental conifers and apple trees. A brick-and-flint wall screens the rear portion of the garden which is also laid to lawn with orchard area, walled and paved patio and potential for a kitchen and soft fruit garden.
Willian Way is a highly regarded tree lined residential avenue on the south side of the town. No 33 is just half a mile from the town centre and within a mile of the mainline railway station.

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.
