The Millfields comprises an historic former Royal Naval Hospital occupying secure landscaped walled grounds of approximately 26 acres, less than one mile west of the City Centre not far from the fashionable Durnford Street and the waters edge with ferry connection to Cremyll and Mount Edgcumbe Park. This fascinating re-development is a designated Conservation Area administered by English Heritage featuring 24 hour security, road network and grounds maintenance.  The buildings and grounds are surrounded by the original hospital wall which provides a secure gated environment, giving total peace of mind. 

The lastest phase of the development is ‘Trafalgar’, one of the finest and most imposing properties within the City and is without a doubt the centrepiece of the Royal Naval Hospital.  The hospital was built in 1760 under the supervision of the famous Georgian architect Alexander Rowehead. ‘Trafalgar’ was designed as a hospital and was reputedly the first in the world to use small and individual wards.  The vast and most importance of this institution may be gathered from the fact that from the 1st January 1800 to the 21st December 1815 no fewer than 48,452 seamen and marines were received into the hospital.  The sundial is an astonishing feature of the building and was made by John Gilbert of London in about 1800.  ‘Trafalgar’ is Grade II* Listed and is adorned by granite Tuscan colonnades which is to this day an outstanding feature of the building.

‘Trafalgar’ is being converted into a series of beautifully appointed and luxurious apartments.  The elegance of this stunning 18th century building continues through into the interiors, where the historic aspects have been emphasised through the careful and considered design combining the grandeur of a bygone age with modern style and finishes to make these properties truly outstanding.  The superior specification includes engineered oak flooring in the open plan living areas and hallways, carpeting to the bedrooms, quality bathrooms with tiled flooring, Italian style fitted kitchen units, Henex moulded work surfaces and Smeg appliances which include oven, hob, cooker hood, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washer dryer.
