Grade II* Listed Building Renovation, Guildford, Surrey

Steeped in history: In 1819 architect Augustus Pugin, who designed and built the tower of Big Ben at the Houses of Parliament, was commissioned to completely transform the appearance of the house. The resulting Tudor/Victorian exterior, with its brick dressings and sixty three individually designed Gothic brick chimneys, remains a triumph to this day. Past visitors included George III whose Coronation Ball was held at Albury, and the luminaries of their day Lords Shaftesbury and Palmerston. The late 1800’s saw the estate eventually pass to the then Duke of Northumberland through marriage and today, the family still owns the surrounding land.

Architect Michael Wilson is currently transforming the house into 12 luxury apartments in conjunction with Trevor Martin Developments Ltd. The opportunity to be part of such an important heritage project is exciting and challenging. Trevor Martin and his team of craftsmen are united in a passion for their trade which is unsurpassed, and the professionalism they bring to each project is proof of this.
