The accommodation briefly comprises an entrance hall with stairs to the first floor. The spacious lounge offers a huge amount of character with a fireplace and a small snug that is used as a study. The dining room is also situated off the entrance hall and leads through into the kitchen, which is situated to the rear of the property but has separate access out to the rear where the driveway and double garage are located. The kitchen is fully fitted with a modern finished and a 'Rayburn' (AGA style) cooker. From the kitchen and through one of the kitchen units, hidden away, is the basement – which was once used as an air raid shelter! Beyond the kitchen and lounge there is an inner hallway that leads out to the rear garden, along with a downstairs bedroom/study, utility room and a downstairs bathroom. Upstairs there are three great size bedrooms. The main bedroom is a lovely space with double doors opening onto a small roof terrace/Juliet balcony. There is a large en-suite with a double shower. The dual aspect second bedroom is a large room with original wooden flooring and the third bedroom and bathroom feature the original 14th century doors.

The house will be sold with a restrictive covenant against the development of the plot for 15 years.

The house was one of the original properties in Digswell and was occupied by the local Rector, following the Black Death, and was owned by the Bishop of Ely – back when Digswell was known as 'Doigswell'.
