2 Bedroom Apartment Sold STC
THE BUXTON The Buxton is the first of six luxurious apartments at Collison Place, a beautiful double-fronted Victorian building, perfectly situated within walking distance of the town centre.
With two large en-suite bedrooms, private off road parking and a generous courtyard garden - this impressive apartment enjoys every benefit of a prime location without any of the common compromises.
The grand entrance hallway with its cut-string staircase, authentic Victorian tiled floor and 18-arm brass chandelier sets the tone upon entering Collison Place. 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.
The Buxton is a beautifully presented two-bedroom ground floor apartment with versatile open plan living. A tranquil setting with high ceilings and large sash windows welcomes natural light to enter spaces throughout.
A timeless indigo Shaker-style kitchen showcases crisp white quartz work surfaces and a full suite of integrated appliances. Low hanging lighting set over a peninsula breakfast bar makes for the perfect relaxed entertaining space whilst a dedicated dining area allows for more formal occasions.
Walking through The Buxton, classic Victorian style solid engineered doors, with solid rosewood beehive style handles are a pleasant reminder of the building's heritage. Bedrooms have been finished to the highest standard both with separate en-suites contributing to the versatility of this apartment.
The Buxton benefits from the addition of a private courtyard garden. Allocated off street parking is provided for one car, both a welcome addition in a bustling town.
THE DEVELOPMENT Impressive yet understated, there's a quirkiness to Cromer that has drawn visitors since the Victorians arrived by steam train in droves.
Collison Place, aptly named after Mr G W Collison whose generosity enabled the initial build back in 1888, is an impressive double-fronted Victorian property which played an important role in the community as a cottage hospital.
Meticulous attention to detail ensures Collison Place remains true to its Victorian heritage with high ceilings, authentic Victorian tiling and sliding sash windows, allowing sunlight to pour in, while integrating all the modern luxuries which make every home the perfect weekend retreat, holiday home or refuge to recalibrate your work-life balance.
THE LOCATION A fishing village transformed by holidaying Victorians, it became a beacon for those seeking to escape London and find solace under big Norfolk skies. Cromer's past is given vibrant colour by tales of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle finding inspiration in the area for Hound of the Baskervilles or Albert Einstein escaping Nazi persecution in Roughton, just outside the town, in the 1930s. Despite these stories, Cromer is most famous for its fresh crab - this and many other excellent locally produced foods are served by a wealth of independent caf鳬 coffee shops, and restaurants. Fish and chips is, of course, the town's meal of choice with Mary Jane's or the critically acclaimed No1, run by Michelin-starred chef Galton Blackiston, providing takeaways best enjoyed on the town's superb Grade II listed pier. This beautiful structure offers stunning sea vistas - and an opportunity to watch Cromer's Victorian streets and the lanes of sweet fisherman's houses gently light up at dusk. Cromer has a rich character and thrives on its individuality, with a long history of attracting visitors with its laid-back, leisurely charm.
