INDIAN ROCKS BEACH, Fla. (Feb. 5, 2018) The Granger House, thought to be one of the oldest standing structures on Indian Rocks Beach, recently sold for $1.7 million. Area residents needn’t worry about losing the landmark property which was built in 1901, as the new owners plan to keep the building intact, according to Selling Agent Julie Folden with Coastal Properties Group International.
Originally built as a beachfront cottage, The Granger House was named after Beverly Ann Granger who bought the property in 1994 and converted it into an income producing motel. Among her more famous guests was Richard Schaal, an actor, writer and first generation member ofSecond City, the popular television sketch comedy show more commonly known as SCTV. Schaal also appeared on the Dick Van Dyke Show, Mary Tyler Moore Show and Rhoda. Following his divorce from actress Valerie Harper in 1978, Schaal moved to Indian Rocks Beach and later became close friends with Granger. Granger passed away from cancer in 2009.
The Granger House has operated as a beachfront inn for more than two decades. Located at 610 Gulf Blvd., in Indian Rocks Beach, the 4-unit property is comprised of one and two bedroom suites and two studio cottages. Features include a lagoon-style swimming pool, hot tub, pine floors and French doors which open to balconies overlooking the beach.
“This charming beachfront inn is reminiscent of ‘Old Florida’ and has an established place in Indian Rocks Beach history,” said Folden. “The new owners appreciate the historical significance of The Granger House and are excited about its continued use by visiting tourists, residents from neighboring communities and repeat customers.”
