A superb live/work freehold house located in this high specification development in the heart of the Jewellery Quarter.
Description Spanning three storeys and measuring more than 1100sqft the versatility of the current layout will allow any buyer the opportunity to add their own stamp and make this property their own. Having been converted from a badge factory this house still retains many period features including the original girders and exposed brick wall and concrete beams running throughout.
The property is accessed from the private gated courtyard where there is an allocated parking space immediately outside the property which also retains the industrial feel of the building with its crane tracks and steel beams. Upon entry, the welcoming entrance hallway leads to the ground floor versatile work space with new en suite shower room, storage cupboard and feature staircase ascending to the first floor. Here we have two excellent sized double bedrooms and a luxury bathroom. Stairs then continue to the second floor to the stunning double height open plan living/dining area and kitchen that benefits from large windows allowing vast amounts of natural light to flood the room and french doors which lead to the spectacular balcony with views over the cityscape.
This is a very rare opportunity to own a luxurious freehold town house in the Jewellery Quarter and viewings are highly recommended.
Location 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.
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.
