Built in the early 1800s for Lord Calper, Digswell House has been many things over the years, including an arts centre and a Sherrardswood School boarding house
It underwent a considerable extension and refurbishment programme around 25 years ago, when it was turned into a collection of luxury homes.
Comprising four acres of grounds, Digswell House is situated in a secluded area between St John’s church and the local cricket ground.
The ground floor of 1 Digswell House, with its high ceilings and full sash windows, features a triple aspect U-shaped drawing room with fireplace and dining area, which looks directly onto the lawn and gardens.
The double aspect kitchen/breakfast room features German units with granite worksurfaces and integrated appliances, including two ovens. There is also a guest cloakroom and a split-level hall.
The lower ground floor has another spacious U-shaped living room with fitted wall units and an office area. The utility room, which is the same size as the kitchen and has another freezer and fridge, has potential to be used as a further reception/play area as required.
On the top floor are four bedrooms, all with delightful views of the grounds. There is also a modern family bathroom and an en suite to the main bedroom.
