A rare opportunity to re-develop a 14 acre Country Estate, uniquely located in the quiet and secluded heart of the famous Surrey Hills Area of Natural Beauty and within easy walking distance of the ever popular period Village of Albury, with its excellent Village amenities and choice of Country Inns and Restaurants.
Albury is the ancestral home of the Dukes of Northumberland’s historic Estates, yet within a 15 minute country lane drive of Guildford’s famous High Street shopping centre and Main Line Station to Waterloo.
The location is a highly protected setting with spectacular South West views over a privately owned 3 acre lake, up to St. Martha’s Hill and the famous beauty spot of Newlands Corner. The surrounding area is Green Belt; Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty; Area of Great Landscape Value and within the Tillingbourne River Conservation Area.
Detailed Planning Consent has been granted to replace the existing 1950’s house with an exceptional Border Oak property. The permission is a traditional oak framed design of great character, to be built by their Master Craftsmen with an individual specification. It is approximately 4,280 sq. ft. with an additional Garage Courtyard.
The accommodation provides flexible layouts with 4/5 bedrooms; 3 bath/shower rooms; 3 generous reception rooms and a spectacular family kitchen with adjoining orangery, utility room and walk in Larder.
The oak framed design provides very spacious accommodation with high architectural impact - a Grand Dining Hall with a galleried Landing plus generous vaulted bedroom suites - all the hallmarks of Border Oak’s renowned attention to detail.
