Hartog Hutton Breathes Life into Sudbury Hospital
12 new homes on the horizon
Hartog Hutton is pleased to announce that it has acquired the St Leonards Hospital site in the heart of Sudbury and will deliver an attractive scheme of 12 high quality homes.
At just under half a hectare, the site will be sympathetically developed to provide a large 1-bed flat, two 2-bed detached cottages, six 3-bed houses and three 4-bed homes. Existing mature trees will be carefully preserved and green spaces will be provided for aesthetic and environmental purposes.
St Leonards has been derelict since 2014 when hospital services were transferred to the Sudbury Health Centre, so local residents will be pleased to see the demolition of old and unsightly outbuildings. The original Victorian hospital building at the heart of the scheme is, however, being retained. This will provide character and dictate the style of the new homes, which will incorporate traditional materials as well as some original features.
Situated to the east of Sudbury town centre, between Newton Road & Burroughs Piece Road, the site is in an area where new homes are in high demand. It has good transport links and the change of use will result in lower levels of traffic in the surrounding area.
“This is a fantastic opportunity to transform a brownfield site into a lovely collection of homes,” commented George Wells, co-director of Hartog Hutton. “As a niche residential developer we are excited to have the added interest of the original Victorian building to incorporate into our scheme. It will create a community that people will be proud to be a part of.”
Hartog Hutton’s aim for this project is to conserve the locations’ character whilst providing homes that are highly energy efficient, accessible and sustainable.
The anticipated completion date is Autumn 2018 and the agents will be Fenn Wright in Sudbury (01787 327000).
