Location/Description: Built in 1866 as part of the ‘Grange Hotel Estate’ and to the designs of renowned Victorian architects ‘Paley & Austin’ the properties were used as tennis pavilions before being converted for residential use in the 1970’s. These truly splendid, dressed limestone cottages were upgraded to an exceptional standard, with particular attention to detail approximately 12 years ago.
There are several possibilities for these properties – live in one and rent one out?
Rent them both out? Convert back to one dwelling? Superb second home/get away from it all?? For the past recent years Spa Cottage has been used as a second home with North Lodge kept for use by family and friends.
The property is just tucked inside the driveway to the Grange Hotel with the railway station just a stone’s throw away and a short walk to the amenities of the town such as Medical Centre, Library, Post Office, Shops, Cafes,Tea Rooms and of course the picturesque Edwardian Promenade. Grange over Sands is a small and friendly sea side town popular with both holiday makers and residents.
To reach the property: Upon entering Grange over Sands at Station Square you will see the main entrance for The Grange Hotel on the right hand side. Turn in and ‘The Pavillions’ are immediately on the right.
