FISH­ER­MEN’S COT­TAGES

WOW! What a trans­for­ma­tion!

The first four ren­o­vated Fish­er­men’s Cot­tages on The Square are now avail­able to rent – for less than £400 a month.

And they look fan­tas­tic. As pre­vi­ously re­ported, the com­pany Galaxy of Homes was founded by hus­band and wife team Vikash and Mad­hu­rita Jayaswal in 2015, who wanted to cre­ate in­vest­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties for land­lords, while also help­ing to cre­ate safe and se­cure com­mu­ni­ties for peo­ple to live in by pro­vid­ing mod­ern and well-main­tained ac­com­mo­da­tion. They’ve spent mil­lions ren­o­vat­ing more than 300 derelict prop­er­ties in Grimsby over the past cou­ple of years and since Au­gust 2018, have been hard at work trans­form­ing their next batch of 40 prop­er­ties; in the Nun­sthorpe, West Marsh and East Marsh ar­eas. The award-win­ning duo pride them­selves on their high stan­dard of homes at af­ford­able prices, and have in­vested £14 mil­lion into the project.

This year Galaxy Letts was es­tab­lished, who let the prop­er­ties out and as­sist land­lords and ten­ants as a prop­erty man­age­ment com­pany. Vikash and Mad­hu­rita have just re­leased four re­vi­talised prop­er­ties which are lo­cated in Grimsby’s The Square. The ter­raced prop­er­ties all have one bed­room and are part of a project of 10 homes.

The for­mer Grimsby Fish­er­men’s Cot­tages were pre­vi­ously owned by the Grimsby Sailors and Fish­ing Char­ity. They are made up of 20 linked sin­gle storey homes. They were once oc­cu­pied by mariners, in­clud­ing many who worked on the trawlers dur­ing the fish­ing hey­day in the town. As the in­dus­try de­clined, the one-bed­room homes be­came less pop­u­lar, with high va­cancy rates. The his­toric cot­tages of­fer mod­ern, sim­plis­tic liv­ing ideal for in­di­vid­u­als or cou­ples look­ing to down­size and boast an open plan liv­ing kitchen area, which is taste­fully dec­o­rated. Each prop­erty has been fit­ted with a new kitchen and the bed­room comes with a built in wardrobe and shelv­ing to help get you started.

At the rear of the prop­erty and off the bed­room is a fan­tas­tic newly-fit­ted mod­ern wet room. The cot­tages are oth­er­wise un­fur­nished but can ac­com­mo­date a sin­gle or dou­ble bed de­pend­ing on your needs and space re­quire­ments.

An un­usual as­pect in this room, is you are able to gain ac­cess to the rear gar­den which has lawn and stone pa­tio area; a per­fect area for en­ter­tain­ing en­closed with a picket fence.
