Abbey House is a late Tudor house situated in the heart of Malmesbury, tucked away behind the Market Cross and adjacent to the Abbey. It overlooks the River Avon to the north and surrounding the house are the wonderful gardens and grounds which create a remarkable and private setting. The house is Grade I listed and predominantly built of stone under render with a stone slate cross-gable roof. The principle elevation has gables with roll top coping and ball finials to the outer wings. The house is roughly a horseshoe shape with a more modern extension extending to the eastern side. Internally the house provides intriguing accommodation together with features one would expect of a property of such age. These include stone mullion windows, exposed stonework, impressive fireplaces, fine solid wood doors and a wonderful oak main staircase with feature carved newels. There is also a 16th Century solid oak winder staircase.
