Normandy House – Hemel Hempstead

Ocea, in association with Wessex Green Developments, began converting this disused office building in Hemel Hempstead back in July 2016 and achieved practical completion in September 2017. Normandy House is adjacent to the Marlowes Shopping centre, a perfect location for City Centre living right in the heart of Hemel Hempstead.

This property has undergone a major conversion and refit, including existing floor space, a new mezzanine floor, plus the re-purposing of the plant room and undercroft. In total, Normandy House consists of 39 one and two bedroom apartments split across 5 floors.

The accommodation in this property varies with each apartment being individually designed, dependent upon its position within this building, taking full advantage of beautiful park views or city panoramas via large airy windows. In this development we have also utilised LCD screens to ensure that natural light can flood into every space, including the internal bedrooms in our city-pad apartments.

Off plan sales for this property commenced in April 2017, with 25% of the development being sold immediately. Normandy House is a development suited for people downsizing from somewhere larger, looking for a city-pad if working in Hemel Hempstead, or for those who may be utilising the Help to Buy Scheme as a first time buyer.

Normandy House has homes designed for people who are looking for contemporary city living, at an affordable price. Each of the show flats demonstrated the high quality of finish in our properties, including flooring, stylish kitchens and high specification bathrooms.

Ocea, in association with Wessex Green, takes unloved commercial spaces and transforms them into vibrant contemporary living spaces. If you currently own a disused property, or would like to invest in a similar project, then please contact us at
