Description

Comet Works is situated in a popular location within the Gun Quarter District, in an area that has experienced remarkable transformation, and which is set to keep on improving.

Once boasting some of the biggest names in British munitions, the historic Gun Quarter was the centre of the worlds gun manufacturing industry, providing guns for the Crimean War, the Wild West, the farthest outposts of the British Empire and even made the muskets used by British soldiers fighting Napoleon at Waterloo. In fact, during the Napoleonic wars between 1803 and 1815, production reached extraordinary levels with over 3 million guns made, and Birmingham's gun makers supplying two thirds of the guns used by the British army.

By the 1820s there were several thousand people employed in the gun trade, with most working in the area lying between the foot of Steelhouse Lane and Aston, and around St Mary's church in Whittall St. This area became known as the Gun Quarter.

The front door is accessed via a delightful oiled brick paved courtyard and opens to a light, bright reception hall where stairs rise to the first floor.

The large open plan kitchen/living space is packed full of character, typical of Javelin Block developments. Designed and built to a very high specification, there are many eye-catching features including vaulted ceilings, polished concrete floors, exposed brick work and the masterpiece zinc clad kitchen, with integrated appliances.

To the ground floor there are two double bedrooms, the master suite having the benefit of a dressing room and remarkably well fitted en suite bathroom with stunning, feature roll top copper bath.

There is under floor heating throughout and one secure parking space behind electrically operated gates.
