Dwellings at Digswell Place near Welwyn GC can be traced back as far as 1155 although the present house was built and subsequently remodelled and then occupied as a rectory from the 16th century to the early 20th century. The house then passed through several owners including the Nesbit family (publishers of Thomas the Tank Engine). In 1989 the property was totally refurbished under the guidance of a Grade II listing and split into three private wings. East House is the most private property and offers a special opportunity to those seeking a period home with well proportioned rooms and many period features in a truly wonderful setting.
