Principal ground floor apartment within the magnificent Albury Park Mansion
Albury Park is an historic estate designed by Augustus Pugin for Henry Drummond in the 19th century. Set within the beautiful English countryside it is possible to enjoy the best of both worlds, a lovely rural setting and a large town nearby. Close by are the charming villages of Albury and Shere, which lie within the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. St Martha’s chapel on the hill, Blackheath, Silent Pool, Newlands Corner, and other well known beauty spots, are all within easy reach and the neighbouring countryside offers miles of wonderful walking, cycling and riding.
Guildford, with its renowned shopping and recreational facilities, including the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, multiplex cinema and Spectrum Leisure Centre, is just a short drive away. Its mainline station offers a regular service to London Waterloo, with trains approximately every 15 minutes and a journey time of around 38 minutes. Alternative train services are available from West Clandon station, with a journey time of around 55 minutes to London Waterloo. Access to London is via the A3, which connects to the M25, the national motorways, Gatwick and Heathrow Airports and the south coast.
Guildford town centre 5.6 miles; Guildford station 6.3 miles; West Clandon station 4.1 miles; A3 5.4 miles; Central London 31.9 miles; Gatwick airport 30.3 miles and Heathrow airport 24.3 miles - all distances are approximate.
Principal ground floor apartment, within the magnificent Albury Park Mansion, enjoying a stunning parkland setting in the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, yet benefiting from excellent commuter links.
The magnificent drawing room with outstanding ceiling heights offers a glimpse into the period grandeur of the house. With similar proportions offered within the family kitchen and two main bedrooms the apartment sets itself apart from others currently available for sale. There is a third bedroom/mezzanine study above the main hall. Within the lower ground floor is a wonderful cavern style bar with a spa, sauna and shower providing leisure facilities, wine cellars and a safe. Outside, the apartment has direct access onto an area of private terrace and garden which overlooks the fine lawn communal grounds extending to around 20 acres. Parking is offered in front of the main house and within a double garage.
Set in over 5 acres of exquisitely landscaped gardens within the Duke of Northumberland’s 150 acre parkland, Albury Park Mansions is a Grade II* listed stately home with a long and distinguished history. This beautiful and historical Surrey house is surrounded by magnificent Listed mature gardens and sits on the bank of the River Tillingbourne.
Albury Park enjoys an impressive architectural provenance. Most recently, the mansion has been fully restored, renovated and updated to a modern and technological specification. The building now marries history and grandeur with 21st century living, and the apartments are ready for a new chapter in the life of this stately home.
With origins predating the Domesday Book and an exceptionally rich architectural heritage, Albury Park rightly deserves its Grade II* Listing. Various different owners, from Earls to parliamentarians and bankers have left their mark on the estate and have contributed to distinctive appearance and stunning surroundings that remain today. Sir John Soane, architect for the Bank of England, made several improvements to Albury Park including the striking and prominent cantilevered staircase, which imparts an awe-inspiring sense of arrival to three of the new apartments.
Augustus Pugin, designer of the Houses of Parliament, also left his mark by giving Albury Park its unmistakable Gothic Tudor appearance and crowning glory: 63 individual candlestick chimneys. In more recent history, Algernon Percy, 6th Duke of Northumberland, became the new owner of Albury Park and ownership of much of the estate has been retained by The Northumberlands.
