Designed by the eminent architect Oswald P Milne, this charming Grade II listed detached cottage is regarded as one of the finest entries to the Cottage Exhibition of 1905. In a town awash with fine individual properties, this one is truly unique.
This compact and delightful home provides two bedrooms and a modern bathroom on the first floor. The ground floor has the original sitting/dining room and kitchen and has an added passageway to the rear providing access to the downstair WC, laundry cupboard and the additional garden room and storage shed.
The house benefits from secondary double-glazing and gas fired central heating.
The cottage stands in a plot measuring approximately 122' by 36' (37.2m x 11m) overall. The front garden is laid to lawn with herbaceous borders and ornamental shrubs. The concrete and paved driveway provides off-street parking and leads to the detached garage to the rear.
The south facing rear garden is some 79' (24.1m) in length and laid to lawn with herbaceous borders, ornamental pond and ornamental shrubs and trees. Aluminium framed greenhouse.
Icknield Way is the oldest road in England and this section runs east to west just to the north of the town centre. Overlooking the 63 acres of Norton Common, Frandean enjoys a very convenient central location, within half a mile of the mainline railway station and town centre. Letchworth Garden City is on the Cambridge to London 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 and green open spaces, of which Norton Common is only the most notable.
