ONE of Bridgwater's oldest buildings is being lovingly restored and resurrected as boutique apartment accommodation.

Set in Bridgwater's historic King Square, the Grade II listed building is due to open in September as a set of five individually-themed service apartments, which have been restored to maintain their original character.

The building was previously used as offices but has been empty for several years.

It was purchased in 2018 by property developers Pamela and Sean Lindsay, who have hired local interior designer Carol Borett to give each of the five apartments a modern take on a historical theme.

"It is an exciting project for us," explains Pamela Lindsay.

"We have renovated a number of properties but this is our first listed building.

"Bridgwater doesn't really have anything like this elsewhere, with really high quality serviced apartments.

"We think they will be popular with people on staycation, but also those travelling on business.

"With Hinkley C, the Gravity site and other projects nearby Bridgwater, there is a demand for this sort of accommodation."

The building comprises five floors, with the ground floor flat even maintaining the building's historic well as a period feature.

It is hoped the King Square Apartments will open in September.

Mrs Lindsay said she was confident in this business model, and believed there was potential scope to renovate other historic buildings in Bridgwater in a similar manner further down the line.
