An elegant and beautifully proportioned freehold property refurbished and finished to a rarely seen standard and featuring a superb specification and state of the art technology.

The property was originally a jewellery workshop which later became a metal smelting workshop but is now almost unrecognizable from when the current owners purchased it. The property itself had been derelict for ten years, however, through a complete renovation programme the property has been refurbished and improved for the 21st Century and has a new use and a new life.


Entrance hallway, guest cloakroom, open plan living/dining and breakfast kitchen, private courtyard, master bedroom with en suite shower room, two further bedrooms both with en suites and upper terrace.


The entire property has been restored after being stripped back to bare brick and includes new roof, floors, plaster walls, rewiring and re-plumbing throughout. The property has retained some original features which have been updated such as Crittall windows throughout. Technology has been incorporated with cabling for broadband, wi-fi and Sky Q and a new central heating system which runs underfloor through the ground floor and through traditionally styled radiators on the first floor.
The ground floor is made up of handmade Tedd Todd solid oak floors, all of which have been handmade to the owners specification. Those areas that don’t have timber floors have the benefit of Italian white Carrera marble herringbone floor from Mandarin Stone.
Leading off the reception hall is a guest cloakroom and under stairs storage. A door then leads through into the heart of this beautiful family home with open plan living/dining and superb breakfast kitchen. Bi folding french doors open out to the private courtyard with lighting and tree lined views.
The breakfast kitchen is the show piece of this magnificent home, with a range of units with white granite work tops and splash backs, integrated Neff and aeg appliances, bespoke handmade exposed brickwork and an original restored workbench island dating back to the 1800’s. A ceiling lantern allows light to flood into the dining area whilst French bi fold doors open out into the courtyard.
The living area has two further ceiling lanterns and storage cupboards and leads in turn to a large double bedroom with en suite shower room featuring German manufactured vanity unit with storage, glow mirror, waterfall taps, frameless shower enclosure with rainfall shower head.
On the first floor, there are two further bedrooms both of which has access out onto the decked roof terrace. Bedroom two has a pocket door leading through into the en suite bathroom with bespoke handmade Victorian marble sink, Victorian roll top bath with rain shower over, glow mirror, Victorian towel radiators and hexagonal solid Carrera marble floor. Bedroom three also has an en suite shower room with double width shower tray and rainfall head, bespoke vanity unit and the same flooring as before.
Throughout the property, the owners superb attention to detail is evident with walls and carpentry finished in Farrow and Ball paint, flush to wall usb, power dockets and lights switches in each room along with 100% wool carpets.

The large south facing decked sun terrace features power, water and lighting with and enjoys treetop views and provides an idyllic oasis in the city. Both the terrace and the courtyard are the perfect place to dine alfresco, relax or entertain friends and family.


The property is located in the heart of Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter, minutes from St Paul's Square and close to the canal walkways.
The Jewellery Quarter is a designated conservation area and proposed World Heritage Site and is already a prestigious and highly desired part of Birmingham. It is experiencing further development as some of the old factories are converted into apartments, restaurants and shops. It is only a short distance to all that Birmingham City Centre has to offer

The City Centre offers some of the best shopping in the country. The famous Bullring Shopping Centre is only around three quarters of a mile away, and contains over 140 shops including one of the only Selfridges department stores outside of London and the exclusive Mailbox development, which is host to a range of designer outlets including Armani and Harvey Nichols. The recently opened £150m Grand Central Shopping Centre sits directly above the new £600 million redevelopment of the now world class New Street station, including a flagship 250,000 sq. Ft. John Lewis store, in addition to over 60 premium retailers and quality restaurants and cafes. The redevelopment enforces Birmingham's retail landscape bringing a mix of unrivalled premium fashion and quality high street brands to the heart of the city.

Transport There are good links to the national motorway network, with excellent access to Birmingham International Airport and The National Exhibition Centre. The A38 Aston Expressway is only around half a mile away, and leads directly onto Junction 6 of the M6 which is itself only some 3.5 miles distant.

Public transport by road and rail is also most convenient. Major bus routes into and out of the City Centre can be picked up nearby. The Jewellery Quarter Train is minutes away away, Birmingham Snow Hill station half a mile, and the superb more recently developed Birmingham New Street Station is only approximately 1 mile away.
