Property Description

The Property

Boycott 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.

Boycott House, is a fabulous two storey home, featuring stunning sea views from every window both to the front and side of the property. Indeed, there are direct sea views from every room in the house.  The living room is flooded with light from the glazed frontage doors giving open views to the sea beyond and features a wood burning stove to cosy up beside in the winter months. The funky open plan kitchen and dining space lies behind the living room with a window and door out to the side of the property looking along the promenade to the sea and the pier and features a Kitchen Haus fitted kitchen.

There are two fantastic bedroom suites, with the master bedroom to the front of the property, again commanding stunning views over the sea from the bay fronted windows. The cleverly tucked away en-suite has a shower enclosure, WC and wash hand basin.

The second bedroom is to the rear of the house, with windows out to the side with its own lovely views and a stunning en-suite featuring a Chadder chariot slipper bath on a metal plinth, separate shower enclosure, WC and wash hand basin.  The limestone forms a wet room floor.
