Property description

Tenure: Freehold

The Property:

An exceptional home forming part of this stunning Georgian mansion house which is surrounded by wonderful landscaped gardens.


This most elegant family home boasts a stunning interior which has been carefully and lovingly designed by the current owners with the history of the property in the forefront of the style and finish throughout.
Upon entering, the welcoming hallway has a cloakroom with wc and leads to a central staircase which runs through the centre of the house. The drawing room is a very special room with high ceilings, large sash windows and open fireplace setting the scene of its Georgian heritage. Bathed in natural light a door leads through into a study which has a dual aspect and fitted bookcases.
The kitchen/breakfast room and the dining room are on the lower ground floor. The kitchen is fitted with an extensive range of Shaker style wall and base units, central island and there is ample space for a large table and a relaxed seating area. There are windows on three sides, which afford light into this whole area.
The dining room is beyond and, whilst a lovely room to formally entertain family and friends, would make for a great family/tv room for children if it was required.
On the first floor, the principal bedroom features a dual aspect, with built-in wardrobes and a modern en-suite with bath and walk-in shower. There are three further bedrooms, two of which are large doubles with deep floor to ceiling cupboards, and a family bathroom again with a separate shower enclosure.
Outside, the beautifully kept communal grounds extend to around 4.5 acres. There is also a garage with a mezzanine storage level within the rafters.

Digswell House has a fascinating history. Built 200 years ago as a country gentleman's home, it became a hospital for wounded soldiers during the First World War, a conference centre from 1928 to 1939 hosting luminaries such as Mahatma Gandhi and George Bernard Shaw, and an artists' retreat after the Second World War.

Council Tax: Band G £3,187.75 Apr 21/Mar 22.


Whilst having the feel of a rural country house conversion, the property is very conveniently located within walking distance of Welwyn North station, which provides a fast and frequent service to Kings Cross (17 minutes). Primary and secondary schooling are a short walk away and country walks down the Mimram Valley are also close at hand. The town centre's amenities, including the Howard Shopping Centre, John Lewis and further mainline rail services to Kings Cross are a short bus/car ride away.
Digswell House enjoys a tucked away position off Monks Rise, close to Welwyn Garden City Cricket Club.
