A Rich Color Palette in a Historic English Home

Nestled in the historic center of Malmesbury, this charming house has been meticulously redesigned to offer a stylish and spacious home in the heart of the South Cotswolds.

With a floorplan of 1,084 square feet spread across three stories, the family home features colorful rooms, three bedrooms, and a plant-filled terraced rear garden that overlooks the serene river, Avon.

The red-brick, sash-windowed façade dates back to the 19th century, while the core and foundations of the house are likely centuries older. This home perfectly blends historical charm with modern comfort, situated in a town built around the majestic abbey that still crowns the top of the hill.
