Project Details

£5m to £9.99M


Lees Munday

28 Westonfields , Albury , GUILDFORD , Surrey , GU5 9AR

A new-build replacement of an obsolete 1930’s house in Camlet Way, the premier street in Hadley Wood. Inspired by Cotswold stone manor houses of “Cider with Rosie” country and the simple white rendered forms of contemporary New England houses in the USA. Our design seeks to combine the desire for a pitched roofed and columned silhouette that symbolises “home”, with the growing trend for more contemporary features, particularly larger areas of glass to give more light and closer contact with the garden and views. The pillared two-storey bays and double height entrance façade create a grand impression down a discrete private driveway approach, passing through four small landscaped “external rooms”, each containing a gigantic antique cast iron urn. The basement leisure suite provides a luxurious pool, jaccuzzi, bar, sauna, steam room and gym, opening out onto a landscaped lightwell.
