Two new apartments have come up for sale in a former cottage hospital in Cromer.

Both properties at Collison Place on Louden Road offer two bedrooms and are located on the ground floor. They are the first of six new luxury apartments being created by local developer Ilex Homes.

Known locally as ‘The Cottage’, the double-fronted Victorian building was originally built in 1888 as a community hospital thanks to the generosity of Mr G W Collison.

The team at Ilex Homes has been committed to keeping the building true to its past – not only by naming it in honour of Mr Collison’s legacy, but by embracing its distinctive character features, including high ceilings and large sash windows, and re-creating the impressive Victorian-style floor in the entrance hall.

The team has also taken a trip to the Norfolk Record Office archives in Norwich, where they unearthed historic plans drawn up in 1903 for an extension to the then Cromer Cottage Hospital.

Throughout the apartments, the building’s beautiful character features have been paired with softer and more contemporary interiors, including in the kitchens, which have been carefully chosen and are fitted with indigo Shaker-style cabinets and white marble effect quartz worktops.

The Buxton is priced at £395,000 and The Suffield at £425,000.
