Refurbishments Start on Grade II Listed Zetland Building

Stem Architects have been commissioned to design a collective of refurbishments in the Grade II Listed Zetland building located in the North Yorkshire seaside resort of Saltburn-By-The-Sea.

Formally known as The Zetland Hotel, the building was originally designed as a luxurious Victorian hotel to serve the then Stockton and Darlington Railway. The Zetland was the brainchild of Henry Peace, Director of the Stockton and Darlington Railway, who is said to have built Saltburn from scratch having an apparition of a heavenly city on the cliffs with the Zetland being the jewel in the crown.

Designed by William Peachy in 1863, the Zetland operated as a hotel until the early 1980’s when it closed due to lack of visitors. The building was refurbished into apartments in the late 1980’s and is now in part, in need of some serious TLC to bring it back to its former glory whilst being attractive to potential residents and the resurgence of staycation visitors.
