17-18 Royal Crescent, Ramsgate

Client: ReRedux Ltd

Location: Ramsgate

Area: 1200sqm

Value: £1.7 million

Procurement: Traditional

Working with client ReRedux, Fleet designed and obtained planning permission for the conversion of a former hotel and language school, now abandoned with in the Grade 2 listed Royal Crescent on Ramsgate’s west cliff.

Ramsgate as a while boasts a density of heritage buildings including an extremely high number of listed properties.  Royal Crescent, designed by Mary Townley who laid out much of the west cliff, shares St Augustine’s Road with Pugins Grange and Chapel and overlooks the historic Royal Harbour.

The space, equivalent to a pair of town house bays, had previously received permission to be carved into 15 small flats.  The Fleet/Reredux scheme reduced this to 9 generous apartments, 4 of which are double fronted and facing the sea.

The project included a newbuild cassette framed pavilion to complete the array of Regency additions to the crescent addressing St Augustine’s Road.

Fleet worked closely with the council’s conservation team to arrive at the proposals which have brought forlorn and derelict heritage building back in to use while restoring much of the lost historic fabric.

The properties are being marketed by The Modern House, and the brochure is available for download here:
