    Arkade Property is delighted to offer this imposing penthouse apartment for sale. This property is both spacious and stylish, benefitting from a large roof terrace with the most spectacular views over the city centre and a secure car parking space. Internally it ticks all of the boxes with two, large, double bedrooms, a spacious living/dining area incorporating a fully fitted kitchen area and a well appointed bathroom. The property also benefits from electric heating and double glazed windows throughout.

    In addition to the plethora of excellent features this property has to offer, its location is very central, only a short walk to the high quality amenities that England's second city has to offer and in the heart of the up and coming Digbeth area which is benefitting from a number of innovative regeneration schemes. Birmingham City Council has approved proposals to regenerate a 17 hectare swathe of the historically industrial Digbeth area with 1,850 new homes, 200,000 sq m of commercial space, new shops, restaurants and leisure facilities. Proposals even include a feature "Sky Park" by turning a Victorian railway viaduct into a high-level park and opening up a previously-hidden stretch of the River Rea. There are also proposals to regenerate the nearby vibrant and cosmopolitan Custard Factory which currently houses bars, restaurants and an excellent cinema. This will be the place to live and future property values will reflect this (agent's opinion).

    One does not have to extol the virtues of being so close to the city centre which offers the world famous Bull Ring shopping centre, the Mailbox and numerous bars, restaurants and theatres. Broad Street and Brindley Place are within walking distance and here one will find the regenerated canal system, more 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. Local sporting and recreational facilities include Edgbaston Golf Club, the Warwickshire County Cricket Ground, Edgbaston Priory Tennis Club and the Botanical Gardens. The property also offers easy access to the main commercial, the M6, Snow Hill Station, the Metro link and Grand Central Station and regular trains from here operate to London and Birmingham International for the NEC and Birmingham International Airport. Birmingham is an excellent location for overseas and domestic investment being centrally located, young and vibrant. It is home to the strongest economy outside London and is the subject of large-scale infrastructure projects from the £550 million Grand Central development to the £1.5 billion Smithfield regeneration. Also, with work underway on HS2, one of Europe's most exciting rail projects, England's second city is becoming a most attractive place to live and invest in.

    HALLWAY Entry to this penthouse apartment is at the fifth floor level which is, effectively, the top floor as there is no building above the property although the complex does extend to six floors elsewhere. The apartment is also located at the end of a corridor, thus minimising the potential noise from passing residents. The front door has a yale lock and, for additional security, a key pad operated lock. The hallway has a carpeted flooring, white painted walls and floor to ceiling, double glazed windows overlooking the courtyard. In addition, there are four, flush halogen spotlights, an electric wall heater, a wall mounted entry phone, a smoke alarm, a wall mounted, Dimplex thermostat, electric wall sockets and a door off the hallway leads to a large storage cupboard which houses the hot water tank, the fuse box, the water meter, a hot water console and has shelving.
