If you’re looking to rent a property in Gibraltar and you’re after something a little more authentic than high rise living, then make sure you book a viewing for Grand Central House.
Sensitively restored from a 19th Century period building, this development of original, well-appointed homes is located on Engineer Lane, right in the heart of Gibraltar's shopping and business district. History tells us that Engineer Lane famously received its name because it was once the prestigious address of the Commander of the Royal Engineers. While the Commander has long moved from the area, the street has retained its prestige and still features grand, colonial-style buildings.
From street level, Grand Central House definitely has some serious ‘kerb appeal’ (apologies for the use of the real estate ‘cliché, but it really does!). Painted the soft, yet regal, blue, that was common to 19th Century buildings, the building’s facade features intricate ironwork balconies and large arched windows with large wooden shutters that hint to more decadent times.
While the outside of the property is appealing in itself, with Grand Central House it is what’s inside that really counts. Upon entering through its large arched doorway you are greeted by stairwells and shared spaces that feature many original period details like marble staircases that add class and authenticity - two things that are rare to find in so many modern apartment buildings.
And the classic touches continue inside each of the 24 rental properties too. Each self-contained apartment has taken inspiration from the building’s location and offers a modern twist to the classic colonial look. High quality finishes run throughout and smart use of space paired with slick interior design make even the more compact apartments a feeling of space. Ranging from studios, one and two-bedroom apartments right through to stunning, maximum luxury penthouses, there are layouts to suit most people (and their different budgets too). With such attention to detail throughout, It is hard to believe that all Grand Central House properties are aimed at Gibraltar’s rental market.
For those of you familiar with Gibraltar, this development’s location is another selling point. Situated just off Main Street, you’d be living in the heart of its old town and just a stone’s throw away from its bustling shops, cafes and restaurants. The developers of Grand Central House have brought something uniquely different to Gibraltar’s rental market; the chance to live with all the modern perks somewhere truly historical.
