Principal ground floor apartment within the magnificent Albury Park Mansion.
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 four main bedrooms the apartment sets itself apart from others currently available for sale. There is a mezzanine study above the kitchen currently being used as a snug. Within the lower ground floor is a wonderful cavern style bar with a spa, sauna, gym and wine cellar. Outside, the apartment has direct access onto an area of private terrace and garden which overlooks the fine lawn and communal grounds extending to around 5 acres. Parking is offered in at the side of the apartment and within a separate 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.
