Property Description

The Property

The Bath House forms part of a beautiful redefining of an iconic building on the sea front in Cromer. Cromer’s Bath House has sat proudly in prime position on the promenade, commanding breath-taking views over the pier and out to sea, since 1814.

This striking building was first opened as a reading room but gained greatest fame as a retreat for wealthy Victorians to ‘take the waters’ away from public gaze. Its chequered past has seen it converted into a private residence in 1836, then into a hotel in 1872 by James Chapman, who added the west wing as a billiard room. It remained a hotel through to the end of the 20th Century when it was once again converted into a single, residence and now finally re-invented to become four beautifully individual luxury homes.

Each of these residences boasts two bedrooms and two beautifully appointed bathrooms but each one has its own very distinct character.

The Bath House, is a two-storey house featuring stunning sea views from both the living area downstairs and the master bedroom above. The funky open plan kitchen and dining space is to the rear of the property and features a Gaggenau kitchen.

Upstairs are two fantastic bedroom suites, both equally worthy of the term ‘master’ bedroom. To the front of the house and commanding the stunning views over the sea from the bay fronted windows is the first bedroom. The beautiful en-suite bathroom has a stunning red Durat bathtub under the window, so you can lie in the bath and listen to the sound of the waves, a separate shower enclosure, WC and wash hand basin

The second bedroom is equally large and has a glazed door to a small secret roof terrace alongside a personal ‘spa’ with a Tylo sauna and wet room shower, forming part of the en-suite facilities.
