Star property over £500,000

Part of a historic stately home, the word ‘flat’ barely does justice to this astonishing four-bedroom ground-floor property.

The Albury Park estate near Guildford in Surrey has been the seat of Earls, parliamentarians and bankers since it was built in the 19th Century.

The Grade II-listed stately home at its heart has now been divided into flats and this is one of them, which has been tastefully updated without losing any period grandeur.

It is for sale with a guide price of £2,500,000 and is marketed by Savills, Guildford at OnTheMarket.

The generous proportions of the drawing room with its high ceilings are replicated by the kitchen, which has wooden vaulted roof beams, and all four main bedrooms.

There is a mezzanine study above the kitchen currently being used as a snug.

Within the lower ground floor is a cavern style bar with a spa, sauna, gym and wine cellar.
