Works complete on idyllic coastal apartments in Bexhill-on-Sea
Designed and delivered by architecture and construction consultancy YMD Boon alongside housebuilder Jade Homes Construction Ltd, planning consultant Stewart Management and Planning Solutions and structural engineer Romala Design Ltd; the Ancaster Court development brings 21 one and two-bedroom apartments to the town, all with parking and some with external patio areas.
The former care home conversion was delivered on behalf of Southlea Property Management, and benefits from being situated on higher ground along the coastline – providing excellent sea views from the upper floors on the south façade for future tenants.
Originally four Victorian-style terraced villas, the conversion of the site involved careful modifications and extensions while complementing the existing vertical hung clay tiling and traditional Victorian brickwork detailing. Each of the apartments have been finished to a high standard with modern fittings and fixtures throughout.
Located on the leafy Hastings Road in the tranquil seaside town, the new apartments are within easy walking distance of the town centre, local amenities and the beach front.
Shari Setayesh, director at YMD Boon, said: “We’re very pleased to see the completion of Ancaster Court and bring 21 modern apartments to the sought-after town of Bexhill-on-Sea.
“The design and modifications were done in a sympathetic way that not only provides excellent living spaces for residents, but also remains in-keeping with the Edwardian and Victorian architecture of the neighbouring houses.
“We’re delighted to have achieved such an attractive development and hope future residents enjoy their new homes. YMD Boon is also looking at a new build residential block at the land to the rear of the existing building. The scheme is due to receive planning approval at the end of November”
Ron Athwal, projects manager at Southlea Property Management, said: “Having worked with YMD Boon and Ransford Stewart on previous projects, we were confident that this development would be delivered to the same exacting standards that we demand and strive for. Romala Design Ltd was also instrumental in the structural calculations as each floor had challenges that we had to overcome.
“We are very pleased with the result and the development was fully Let within a short space of time. Many of the tenants commented on the high standard which is always rewarding to hear as a developer. Credit also to our Main Contractor Jade Homes on delivering such a great finish.”
