Letchworth Garden City is the world’s first Garden City designed to fuse together the finest elements of the countryside with city life. Letchworth was designed as a town located within a green belt of open countryside that would serve to provide food for the residents, and all industry would be sited separately from residential areas. Not only modern town planning but also many aspects of modern British house design can be traced back to the creation of Letchworth in the early 1900s – specifically the creation of roundabouts on public roads, and the country style homes that emerged from the 1905 and 1907 Cheap Cottages Exhibitions.
Since its inception in the early 1900s, Letchworth has grown with the addition of several housing estates including The Grange, Jackmans, Lordship and Manor Park. Designed as a safe, green environment perfect for families, Letchworth residents take great pride in their properties and their famed town.
Many Letchworth properties are designed to maximise internal space, yet spacious Letchworth properties can be enhanced even further with the addition of a loft conversion. Converting attic space in a Letchworth family home could provide children with their own games room.
A dormer loft conversion provides an extension to the existing roof, allowing for additional floor space and headroom. A dormer Loft conversion in Letchworth will typically have a horizontal ceiling and vertical walls, and not the slopes and areas of restricted head height that many of us envisage when visualising a loft conversion.
When considering a loft conversion in any Letchworth property, be sure to remember the need for stairs! At Abbey Lofts our experienced team will work with you to select the best location for the access into your new loft conversion to minimise disruption to your home and maximise the potential of your enhanced roof space.
