Description - The Grange comprises a substantial Victorian residence which is believed to date from the 1870s, although this was extended at a later date.
Built of local stone under a slate roof, the property has been attractively maintained and displays many of the original features including superb moulded coving, ceiling roses, some stained glass windows and well-proportioned reception rooms. The property has been utilised for a seasonal holiday letting business comprising four apartments on the ground and first floor together with owners own spacious accommodation however certificates of lawfulness have been obtained in recent times for adaptation of the property in to five self-contained residential apartments. There is also a consent, which has commenced, to extend the accommodation further to provide an additional penthouse unit in the second floor attic space
The Grange is likely to appeal to investors/speculators interested in developing the property to its full potential, with a view to possibly selling off the apartments individually.
