History of the Development
In 1801 a modest sized house called Boscombe Cottage was constructed, which was subsequently acquired by Sir Percy Florence Shelley who bought the property for his mother Mary, who is most famously known for her Gothic novel "Frankenstien". For 2 years builders transformed the cottage into a mansion, and as his mother had passed away, Sir Percy and his wife Jane then decided to make it their country home. In 1860 a private theatre was added and since then the property has subsequently been the Grovely Manor School and a technical college. The property was derelict for 6 years and has been renovated to be known as Shelley Manor in honour of its creators.

The property adjoins eight acres of public woodland, which in turn leads to the cliff top and beach below.

The adjoining Theatre will be refurbished and there will be a restaurant/café for general use.

There is secure underground parking for each unit approached via electronically operated doors.

The developer is offering each purchaser the opportunity of bespoking their apartments, so each purchaser achieves the home they desire. A vast number of special requests can be incorporated from Kitchen and Bathroom specification to floor coverings and fixtures and fittings.
