2 Bedroom Apartment For Sale
THE BUXTON "Oh to be besides the sea…"
The pier juts out from the shore, the colourful frontage of seaside homes lines cliffside streets and the distant waft of fish and chips sends your senses tingling. This is the essence of the Great British seaside nostalgia.
Never has a setting been more iconic in English society; we really do love to be beside the sea.
The British seaside past time has been enjoyed for generations - it is Cromer's iconic heritage architecture which has been here to see it all.
Locally known as 'The Cottage', Collison Place was originally built as a community hospital in 1888, thanks to the work of the founding committee and the generosity of Mr G W Collison.
The building and apartments have been named in homage to Mr Collison and six of the committee members and their legacy and throughout Collison Place you will discover fond nods to this important past-life have been preserved.
Tradition and Vogue.
Life at Collison Place offers an elegant blend of tradition and vogue.
Wake up to a sea breeze flowing through the sash windows of this elegant double fronted Victorian Cromer apartment, grab your morning coffee to takeaway and stroll upon the cliffs, promenade and along the pier. But step through the front door and a grand entrance hall welcomes you; Victorian tiles tease the way to a cut-string staircase, sweeping beneath an 18-arm brass chandelier.
"Cromer's visiting notables include a 10-year-old Winston Churchill in 1885."
The Buxton instantly wraps you in a calm and warmth, flooded in natural light.
You can easily imagine the sound of laughter and chatter filling the high ceilings as friends and guests catch up over a glass of something or relax in the open-plan living space.
A timeless shaker-style kitchen with full suite of integrated appliances and breakfast bar is the perfect place from which food can be served and shared or use the dedicated dining area for more formal occasions.
When days spent on the North Norfolk coast are over, two sumptuous en-suite bedrooms tease a tranquil space to escape and unwind.
'Mention Cromer and someone within earshot will think "crabs". Cromer crabs, a happy bit of alliteration which sticks in the mind and conjures visions of wide beaches, seaside fun and wholesome seaside fare, with or without mayonnaise." - THE GUARDIAN
ALL THE REASONS COLLISON PLACE IS THE PLACE TO CALL HOME Cromer has an exciting vibe and fantastic amenities. Perhaps start the day with a morning coffee at Rocket Caf鬠overlooking the sea, or catch up with friends at New Fig and Olive Deli.
