General information Located next to the highly regarded Fludyers Hotel and restaurant, overlooking Felixstowe's sandy beach, this striking three storey former nursing home is full of character with a GIA of 13,152 Sq ft / 1,222 Sq m.
Planning consent has been granted for six luxury sea view apartments and the creation of three brand new townhouses. The building sits within a conservation area in the desirable area known as Old Felixstowe.
The site itself extends to approximately 0.60acres offers pedestrian access from Undercliff Road East along the beachfront and vehicular access from Brook Lane.
The design of the conversion has been sympathetically planned to retain internal walls and as many original features as possible. The architect has created open-plan kitchen/dining rooms which take full advantage of the stunning sea views and are ideal for modern day living. The ground floor apartments open out to a private garden and those on the first floor will have access to a stunning private sea view terrace. The second floor could also benefit from a window balcony to create a private space with uninterrupted sea views.
The townhouses which will replace the modern extensions of the former nursing home have also been cleverly designed to take full advantage of the site location and surroundings. Arranged over three floors they include an integrated garage, WC, garden room, open-plan kitchen/dining/living room, two bedrooms and a bathroom. These will have side-on sea views and a balcony.
The outside To the rear of the site, there will be a communal entrance, a new cycle store, a building housing the communal bin storage and a total of 17 car parking spaces, 6 of which will be in a covered cart lodge.
Each of the three new build houses has an integral garage and 1 parking space, each of the six apartments has 2 parking spaces; each with one covered cart lodge space, and there will be 1 additional visitor parking space.

Where? Felixstowe has increased in population over the last few years, with prestigious developments like The Bartlett proving to be a draw to people moving to the area. With restaurants close by and a commute of around an hour and a half to London, Felixstowe is ideal for those escaping from the city or those looking for their perfect seaside escape.
Apartment living is popular with those looking for second homes due to their desirable 'lock up and leave' nature and with many in secure, gated developments. For residents, they can enjoy spectacular views all year round with easy access to amenities and Felixstowe's wonderful beaches. The explosion of home working has brought many out of area buyers to this region, with the Suffolk coastline proving popular with those relocating from London.
