THE PROPERTY
This remarkably spacious modern semi-detached home is a very successful re-imagining of the Garden City style. Built in 2010, the house provides well-proportioned five bedroom accommodation distributed over three floors. Two of the bedrooms have en suite shower rooms, the rest being served by the family bathroom. The sitting room is complemented by a family room and a spacious re-fitted kitchen/dining room. There is a ground floor cloakroom/WC.

The house is constructed of insulated cavity brickwork, rendered externally, under a tiled roof. The windows are uPVC and double-glazed and central heating is provided by a recently replaced gas fired condensing boiler.

THE OUTSIDE
The house sits on a basically triangular plot measuring approximately 100' by 51' (30.5m x 15.5m) overall. The neat front garden is screened by a picket fence and a hedge and laid to lawn with herbaceous borders and ornamental shrubs. The brick paved driveway provides off-street parking.

A gate to the side provides access to the south facing rear garden, which is some 25' (7.5m) in length and laid to artificial lawn with paved patio.

The development incorporates a number of green open spaces, is well planted with trees and adjoins the Baldock Road Recreation Ground.

THE LOCATION
Bowyer Drive is conveniently located just three-quarters a mile to the east of the town centre and within a mile of the mainline railway station. Letchworth Garden City is on the Cambridge to London mainline and regular services run throughout the day. The fastest journey time to London King's Cross takes only 29 minutes; Cambridge is 28 minutes away in the opposite direction. Junction 9 on the A1(M) is a mile and a half 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, green open spaces and leisure facilities. Hillshott Infant School and Nursery is just half a mile away.
