Letchworth is famous for its iconic ‘garden city’ town plan design, pioneered in the early 20th century to combine the best of town and country living.
This busy town offers Arts and Crafts architecture, a wide choice of sports and community facilities, and is surrounded by the Greenway, a 13.6km circular route of green open space.
Renting in Letchworth is a popular choice for busy commuters heading to London (47 minutes into King’s Cross). It also appeals to families, with plenty of activities to keep young ones entertained, and ten local schools rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted – including the popular private schools St Christophers’ and St Francis’ College.
Many people choose this area for its expansive green spaces, which are beautifully maintained by the Letchworth Heritage Foundation. This local organisation is responsible for an ongoing programme of enhancement and care, across the 5,500 acre Garden City estate, which spans rural paths, the central shopping area and unique attractions such as Standalone Farm.
With average property prices slightly lower than other similar areas in Hertfordshire, we think that Letchworth Garden City has a lot to offer savvy investors.
