From Town & Country

THE PROPERTY: Garsdon Mill sits within 54 sprawling acres of beautifully landscaped gardens, well-maintained woodlands and stretching farmland. The former working mill was converted into a five-bedroom property by the Honourable Patrick Howard, brother of the Earl of Suffolk and Berkshire, and his wife Mary, who was a well-known model, socialite and philanthropist.

Overlooking the millpond connected to a tributary of the River Avon, it is an exceptionally well-equipped home, offering a swimming pool, two further cottages, a tennis court and a number of outbuildings.

THE LOCATION: Situated in North Wiltshire within a mile of the village of Malmesbury (dubbed the Queen of hilltop towns), Garsdon Mill is easily reached by both road and rail. It has excellent local amenities, including several brilliant schools, an abundance of footpaths and bridleways, and is a stone’s throw from Cheltenham racecourse.

THE INTERIOR: Retaining many of its original design features, Garsdon Mill partners its rich heritage as a working mill with the luxuries of modern living. Set across three floors, the main house has five bedrooms, four bathrooms and a sleek kitchen, as well as vast reception space. The interiors are understated but charming, with exposed beams and brickwork illuminated by plenty of natural light.
