Indian billionaire steel magnate Lakshmi Mittal is to build an eco-friendly mansion on an historic Cranleigh country estate.


The unique design is filled with modern features that will also make the entire 340-acre estate carbon negative.


Alderbrook Park was created in the 1880s and comprised parkland, woodland and agricultural land, along with a range of estate houses and farm buildings.


At its heart was a grand country house designed by eminent Victorian architect Norman Shaw for a Greek merchant banker, Pandeli Ralli.


This house was demolished in the mid-1950s and replaced by a much smaller home, which will be torn down in turn to make way for Lakshmi Mittals new mansion built on a similar scale to the original.
