A luxury flat, part of the historical Tewin Water House, and only a stone's throw from central Welwyn, has been listed on the market for £895k.

According to Bryan Bishop & Partners estate agents, the property benefits from an illustrious past, a secure setting within a stately home's grounds, and a new roof with a 25-year guarantee.

Tewin Water House was first built in 1689, and saw hands of ownership change over the centuries before the Hertfordshire County Council purchased the property in 1950 to convert it into a school for deaf children.

A relatively recent transition saw the school moving to Knightsfield, and the historical building was converted into a number of luxury apartments.

The well-positioned flat for sale is comprised of approximately 2,000 square feet of accommodation space.

This includes an entrance hall with American oak flooring, which extends throughout the living spaces, a high standard kitchen, and an open-plan dining area with a skylight.

The generous drawing room is a centrepiece of the apartment, featuring high ceilings, a feature fireplace, and Georgian picture windows for an unparalleled view of the pristine gardens and surrounding countryside.

Moreover, the flat boasts three bedrooms located off the upper hallway.

The remaining bedrooms are both sizeable and share a family bathroom.

A cloakroom with washroom facilities is situated off the main entrance hall for guests.

One of the defining features of this property is its mesmerising outdoors.

Occupants enjoy a share of the building’s freehold and the grounds without having to worry about its maintenance.

The flat also comes with a separate garage offering an extra parking space, aside from the allocated slot on the communal driveway.

The local amenities, including a shop, cafe, and two pub/restaurants, in Digswell.

It is not just the craftsmanship and functional aspects of the apartment which could entice prospective buyers, but also the romantic and borderline mystical history that surrounds it.

Known locally for being home to Lady Cathcart, a fixture in balls, assemblies, and 'routs', Tewin Water House is even talked about as a site where her ghost is often seen, adding an interesting, if not eerie, note to its beautifully-appointed spaces.

The flat offers a unique chance to contribute to the ongoing narrative of Tewin Water House while experiencing a stately lifestyle amid some of the finest parkland views Welwyn has to offer.
