Former Grantham Kontak club is being redeveloped into luxury flats
A former sports and social club in Grantham has caught the eye of several developers and businesses over the years, with plans for it ranging from a nursery to an Indian restaurant.
But one plan for the former Kontak Sports and Social Club has finally become a reality - it is being transformed into luxury flats, which featured in the Journal recently as our Property of the Week.
The Kontak club, in Barrowby Road, closed in May 2009 after operating as a social club for Kontak workers for more than 40 years.
There are six luxury apartments in this new development, to be renamed The Lodge Apartments. They are being marketed by Buckley Wand.
Here's the property editorial which featured in the Journal's Property of the Week spot:

There are two one-bedroom apartments and four with two bedrooms, and they are priced between £89,950 and £135,000.
All are self-contained and there is no onward chain involved in any of the sales.
A two-bedroom apartment on the first floor is now open as a show home and ready to be viewed by potential buyers.
The apartments all have the benefit of a full CCTV system, electric heating, upvc double glazing and each has two designated parking spaces , one of which is in an open-fronted car port.
