Angel’s Courtyard in Colchester:historic buildings in Britain’s first Roman city transformed into glamorous flats

Angel’s Courtyard is a collection of seven listed buildings, including former council offices, in Colchester’s historic high street transformed into glamorous apartments.

Property developers have to tread carefully in Colchester, Essex, Britain’s first Roman city.

The ruins of an extraordinary 130ft-long Roman arcade with grand columns were uncovered earlier this year beneath a site that was intended for a new apartment block.

And Angel’s Courtyard, a collection of seven listed buildings including former council offices in Colchester’s historic high street, is another scheme that presented construction challenges. 

These were overcome with panache by specialist heritage property developer City & Country, which has restored and transformed the buildings into glamorous apartments priced from £279,500 to £550,000.
