Arkade Property is pleased to present this third floor, one bedroom apartment set in the popular and characterful, converted Derwent Foundry close to the centre of the Jewellery Quarter, just off St Paul's Square and within walking distance of the City centre. The property can be accessed via the staircase or the lift and benefits from a large bedroom, a pleasing living area, a fully fitted kitchen and a bathroom. In addition, there is double glazing throughout and the property is heated by electric wall heaters.
This is a fabulously located apartment, situated in the Jewellery Quarter just a few yards from St. Paul's Square, Birmingham's most desirable district. The magnificent frontage of the complex is fully in keeping with the locale which is now benefiting from substantial regeneration and extensive restoration while preserving the unique ambience of the area. The Jewellery Quarter has an interesting mix of shops and residential schemes and many of the buildings have been listed because of their historic significance. The apartment is a very short walk to St. Pauls Square, a lovely, green, Georgian square with bars, restaurants and the popular live music club, the Jam House. Broad Street and Brindley Place are also 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 magnificent new library, 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 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. Birmingham 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 the apartment is at third floor level and can be accessed by the stairs or the lift. The front door has a peephole and two locks. The Hallway floor is a tile effect vinyl and the walls are painted white. In addition, one will find a CCTV entry phone, an electric wall heater, two ceiling lights, a smoke alarm, electric wall sockets, a telephone point and double doors give access to a storage cupboard housing the boiler, plumbing for a washing machine, the fuse box, the hot water console and the water meter.
