Property description

Location

Albury Road is an established residential address, situated on the east side of the town, in a highly regarded area of Guildford. The property benefits from a convenient situation, being close to many local amenities, including the town centre, London Road station, Stoke Park and the Spectrum Sports and Leisure Centre. Communications are excellent, with the A3 providing access to London, the south coast and Heathrow and Gatwick airports via the M25 at Wisley, whilst the main line station at Guildford offers a fast and frequent service into London Waterloo, with journey times from about 36 minutes. There is a good selection of state and private schools in the area, including Holy Trinity, The Royal Grammar School, Tormead, Lanesborough and Guildford High School. Recreational opportunities include the new g-Live Civic Centre, which hosts a variety of live entertainment, the renowned Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, and multiplex cinema in the town centre.

Description

Albury Manor was built in 1897, we understand, by William Swayne and Sons, a highly respected local builder with a reputation for high quality craftsmanship. Typical of the period, the elevations are of brick, with sash windows, under a clay tiled roof. The property has been extensively restored and modernised, with great care having been taken to retain the many original architectural features, including the two staircases, marble fireplaces, ceiling cornices and panelled doors. Part of the improvements have included the addition of a two-storey wing, a impressive Hampton orangery and conservatory, a principal suite and a stunning Victorian style kitchen/breakfast room, with a 4 oven gas-fired aga with Aims (aga intelligent management system). There is further potential to develop into the loft space, which is boarded, and offers a further 1, 600 sq ft of useable space, subject to obtaining the relevant consents.

Gardens and Grounds
At the front, two pairs of electrically operated wrought iron gates, with B & O entry phone/security system, lead to an "in and out" carriage gravel drive, bordered by a variety of shrubs, including lavender and laurel. To one side, a stone paved path leads around to the rear garden. From both the orangery and the conservatory, doors lead out to a balcony and terraces and on to a level lawn, with attractive mature tree and shrub borders. An area of approximately 0.23 acre, at the far end of the garden, has been identified as a possible building plot, subject to obtaining the relevant planning permissions.

Photographs taken June 2012 and May 2014.
