A spacious 2/3 bedroom east facing first floor managed apartment with sea views. Harvest House caters for the over 55's and is ideally positioned in the main town centre on the central cliff top at Hamilton Gardens offering easy access to the sea front, promenade and main shopping centre. Harvest House was constructed in 1903 and was originally named "The Balmoral Hotel" (soon to become the Felix Hotel, now Harvest House apartments) and was built in a neo Jacobean style designed by T.W. Cotman for Douglas Tollymache. It is reputed that many famous people and well renowned authors stayed at the Felix Hotel. In 1951 Harvest House was sold to Fison Fertilisers who used the building as their headquarters until 1982 when it was sold to Norsk Hydro. It was subsequently converted into apartments in the mid 1980's by Roger Brothers of Felixstowe. The property is sold with no onward chain and will include all carpets, curtains and light fittings.
