Off the Hallway are: a comfortable and useful Sitting Room area, the fully fitted spacious Kitchen, Utility Rooms and access to the secondary staircase. The Kitchen and Hallway have easy access to the terrace and rear gardens. From the Hallway, the wide central staircase leads to: The Library with fitted decoratively carved bookcases lining two walls, stone mullioned windows with far reaching views over the rooftops of Devizes and an impressive floor to ceiling stone canopied fireplace; The Dining Room, a wonderfully proportioned room suitable for lavish entertaining or family dining, with a wide bay stone mullioned window, ornately carved stone fireplace; The Long Gallery leads to the Drawing Room, a beautifully light and airy room with stone mullioned windows offering sweeping views of the gardens, open fire, a fine ceiling with ornate carved and gilded decoration, and easy access to the gardens via the adjoining Fernery. The Fernery features original encaustic tiled floor and interlaced stone arched windows and encircles a useful secondary kitchen. Upstairs, aside from the two impressive Principal Bedroom Suites offering views over the gardens and the countryside beyond, there is an additional en-suite bedroom and six further bedrooms. For more detailed information on room sizes and layout, please consult the floorplans. Gardens and grounds The gardens surrounding Devizes Castle are an important ingredient to its charm and approached via imposing gates. To the front lies an abundance of mature trees whilst to the rear the garden is encircled by the ramparts, offering seclusion. The rear garden provides for sheltered walks through important and interesting specimen trees and has been landscaped with herbaceous borders, water features and lawn areas, whilst stone archways and gateways offer picturesque focal points around the garden. The roses are a particular highlight. History We are delighted to be offering such a rare opportunity to acquire the principal section of a property that has played such an important part in English history. Devizes Castle took its name from the Medieval Latin castrum ad divisas, meaning ‘the castle at the boundaries', because it stood at the central point of three Manors. Many records state that the first castle was built on the site by Bishop Osmund of Salisbury in approximately 1080. Burnt down and re-built in stone during the reign of King Henry I, it was from this point onwards that the Castle became a popular residence for the Monarchy and described as ‘the most gorgeous in Christendom'. The Castle played a significant part in the history of this country, particularly during the wars between King Stephen and Empress Matilda in the 12th century. Subsequently, a number of kings and notables stayed in the castle, including King John who often visited between 1204 and 1216 and later Henry III and Edward I. Until the 17th century, it remained in the hands of the Crown and became the property of the Queens of England, including Henry VIII's wives, amongst others. It is said that the Castle gave Devizes its name, its existence and its street pattern, having prompted the Bishop of Salisbury to establish the satellite town on the Castle's eastern outskirts. By 1645 the Castle was held by the Royalists and was largely destroyed during the 17th Century Civil War between King and Parliament. It was not until the 1830s that Devizes saw a castle again. Designed by H.E. Goodridge (celebrated architect of the Lansdown Tower, or ‘Beckford's Tower' as it is more commonly known, outside Bath) the property sits high above the market town and provides an impressive and unique home.

The property has two entrances, both with electric gates, the main entrance sweeping past the stables to the house. The house is a dramatic space that exceeds all expectations in its renovation and finish. From the gravel drive the front door opens in to the entrance hall, which in turn leads to an open plan living space about 60 feet long and 27 feet wide. With exceptional kitchen fittings, this room has good views through a glazed gable end over the lawns and across open country to the wooded scarp of the Downs. With a limestone tiled floor, the kitchen and sitting room living area is particularly well equipped with kitchen units of local oak and built in Gaggenau appliances, beyond which is the sitting area, complete with a free hanging wood burning stove with glass hearth. Stairs from the kitchen area lead to the mezzanine above the formal living area - a fully serviced home office with all the service media required and cat 5 cabling throughout the house. Accessed from the entrance hall, is a staircase to a good sized bedroom, together with ensuite shower room. The remaining three bedrooms are on the ground floor; including the master bedroom with an ensuite bathroom and large walk in wardrobe with fitted cupboards.

Abbey House is located in a quiet backwater, but also close to centre of Malmesbury and the Abbey. The house is nestled beautifully behind its own stone walls and is surrounded by its own grounds affording incredible privacy. It is incredibly unusual to find a house of this stature within such large grounds that is just a stones throw from the many shops, bars and amenities that the Malmesbury residents enjoy. Abbey House is predominantly a Tudor style house with wonderful views over the River Avon and convenient access to all of Malmesbury’s fine attractions including the adjacent Abbey. The house has been awarded a Grade I listing as a nod to its historical significance and its many spectacular period features; these include the beautifully crafted stonework which you will find throughout, mullion windows, wonderful fireplaces, solid wood Tudor doors, oak staircases and finely detailed wood panelling. Whilst the accommodation is substantial, at over 12,000 square feet, the house has retained a useable feel and allows large scale entertainment but also more importantly offers cosy areas for more intimate family use. The ground floor accommodation centres around the family kitchen/breakfast room and studio space. This room has a semi open plan feel and provides the family with excellent seating and dining areas adjacent to the kitchen. The drawing room and bedroom above are two of the most charming rooms as they offer a lovely double aspect through the aforementioned mullion windows. For entertaining purposes the library, which is stocked with a variety of in-built bookcases, would host an excellent party as would the reception hall. The upper floors have a good mix of bedrooms and bathrooms. There is also the opportunity to provide fully independent suites as there is a back staircase and kitchenette allowing for dependent relatives or rental opportunities. Each room, as you would imagine, comes with its own beautiful aspect over the landscaped gardens as well as having individual period charm. The views to the front are over the intricate formal gardens and to the rear over the more rustic countryside gardens with the meandering River Avon running through the lower level. The belvedere on the ground floor is a useful and generous space used for large family gatherings and occasional wedding receptions both in it’s own right and also as an overspill of the Malmesbury Abbey wedding venue. This has bi folding doors opening up on to the terrace and also has basic catering facilities in the second kitchen. Situation Abbey House is one of the oldest buildings in the sought after town of Malmesbury, on the southern edge of the Cotswolds, reputed to be England’s oldest borough. It is positioned to enjoy level access to the many excellent amenities of Malmesbury whilst making the most of the backdrop of rolling countryside to the rear. Malmesbury itself has many shops including Waitrose, a variety of independent boutiques, coffee shops and well regarded restaurants. The area is popular with families due to the excellent schooling system and good access to the many well regarded local state and private schools which include Westonbirt School, Beaudesert School, Daunceys School and Marlborough College. The location of the property provides excellent communication links with Junction 17 of the M4 being only 5 miles away making central London , Cardiff and the South Coast easily accessible. There are a wide variety of local sporting events and pursuits including the horse racing at Cheltenham, Badminton Horse Trials, Castle Coombe race track, polo at Cirencester Park and the up and coming Cotswold Water Park with its many facilities. For those looking to use the rail system Kemble Train Station offers high speed trains to central London (in just over 60 minutes) and Swindon Train Station has good links to the South. Outside Grounds The grounds are a particular highlight of Abbey House. This has developed as a result of the passion of the current owners since their early occupation. The gardens have achieved international acclaim and have been opened to the public for many years. This is a private arrangement and does not necessarily need to be continued. The gardens offer incredible interest as well as beautifully stocked herbaceous borders, meandering paths and water features which are sure to delight. They have been informally split into two sections; to the front and to the rear. The house is accessed down a discrete lane from the main Malmesbury high street and through bespoke double wooden gates or a pedestrian access to a long tree lined driveway. The framed front garden is divided into a number of lawned areas which are divided predominantly by mature yew tree hedging and incorporate: a Celtic cross shaped knot garden, spectacular herbaceous borders and the ‘Lady Chapel walk’. The second section of the formal garden is the spectacular circular herb garden with raised oak beds and a uniform pattern of criss-crossing paths. There are a plethora of imaginative seating areas to enjoy the various architectural elements as well as the diverse flora and fauna. From the formal gardens a meandering path leads via the upper terrace to the lower section of the garden which extends either side of the River Avon. The current owners have created a natural river garden with two monastic fishponds, waterfalls, mill races and a bridge adding interest to this wonderful water garden. Again there are wandering paths as well as sections of planting bringing both colour and diversity to this section of the garden. To the west of the lower gardens there is independent access ideal for maintenance vehicles etc. As one would expect the garden has been designed to provide year round colour, interest and life as well as seating areas to drink in the many fine views of the property. The Cloister Gardens Abbey House also owns ‘The Cloister Gardens’ (0.7 acres) which is located to the west of the main drive and is currently let to Malmesbury town centre for their use on a long lease. Maintenance of these is undertaken by the town council. Additional Information History Abbey House was originally part of the Benedictine Monastery founded around the end of the 7th Century with Malmesbury Abbey itself providing the backdrop to the beautiful gardens. Foundations dating back to the 13th Century can still be seen today, but it is believed there was a house on the site as far back as the 11th Century. Abbey House itself has been awarded Grade I listed status (houses of exceptional interest) with the majority of the current house constructed in the mid 16th Century. It saw particular improvement and enlargement during the Tudor period and takes much of its architectural style from this much loved English building period. After the Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1539, William Stumpe acquired the remains of the monastery from Henry VIII and by 1542 was constructing Abbey House on the existing 13th Century foundations of one of the former monastic buildings and possibly the Abbots House itself. The house was handed down through the Stumpe family and by the time of the English Civil War had passed to the Ivy family through marriage. The house then remained in private ownership and was eventually bought at the beginning of the 20th Century by Captain Elliott Scott McKirdy who enlarged the house by adding a nursery wing and servants quarters whilst retaining its architectural integrity. The house then passed to the Deaconess Community of St Andrew in 1968 where it was run as a base for parish ministry and as a home for elderly sisters and guests until early 1990. In 1994 the house was acquired by the present owners who have added their artistic flair and transformed the gardens and grounds which have been open to the public since 1998. 12637 sq ft over four floors three formal reception rooms kitchen/breakfast room library spectacular Abbots hall belvedere five first floor bedrooms six second floor bedrooms exceptional gardens achieved international acclaim about 4 acres.
