Tenure: Leasehold

This characterful apartment is located within a unique development, which has retained the "olde worlde" feel of this grade II listed building but has incorporated modern design and technology to the full. Each unit has its own special features and retains its individuality. The beautiful design coupled with the imaginative additional features create a functional work of art. Quite simply, this property is unique and must be viewed and enjoyed internally to fully appreciate its charms.

This is a development created by a local company, Cedar Homes (UK) Ltd. formed in 1980 and specialising in high quality individual projects which have been recognised with design awards. The development is situated on Warstone Lane to the west side of the historic Jewellery Quarter, which is now enjoying substantial regeneration and extensive restoration while preserving the unique ambience of the area. The Jewellery Quarter has a delightfully eclectic mix of shopping and residential schemes, many of the buildings having been listed because of their historic significance. The development is a very short walk to St. Paul's Square, a lovely green square with bars, restaurants, art galleries and the famous live music venue, the Jam House. Broad Street and Brindley Place are within walking distance and there one can find a number of bars, high quality restaurants and theatres, the Sea Life Centre, the National Indoor Arena, the International Convention Centre and Symphony Hall, the home of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. The apartment offers easy access to the main commercial and shopping areas, the M6, Snow Hill Station, the Metro link and New Street Station and regular trains from here operate to London and Birmingham International for the NEC and Birmingham International Airport.  

DETAILS The entry to the building is from Warstone Lane. As there are only two residential properties in this section of the development, the footfall will be minimal and being on the top floor, there will be little noise from other residents. In addition, while not part of the demise, the top floor landing would not be utilised by any other party. Entry to the apartment is from the second floor landing which leads to the inner hallway from which all rooms can be accessed. There is an imposing living room which leads to a beautifully designed and fitted kitchen, two double bedrooms and a large bathroom with a designer bath and a separate shower cubicle. The property benefits from gas central heating, high ceilings and a very reasonable annual service charge.
