The history 

Only 22 when he was crowned king, King George III struggled throughout his life with mental illness, and was eventually dubbed 'The mad King'. 

His reign would last 59 years - the longest for any King - and has only been surpassed by Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth II herself. 

King George's Coronation Banquet was, to that point, one of the biggest events of its kind, so Albury Park really does carry with it some powerful history.

The house sits right beside the bank of the River Tillingbourne and is surrounded by some truly beautiful nature. 

The space offers up both modern luxury and historical prestige. Listed by House Partnership, They had this to say about the property ''The building now marries history and grandeur with 21st-century living, and the apartments are ready for a new chapter in the life of this stately home.''
