Arkade Property is delighted to offer this spacious and excellently located, tri-aspect apartment which is located on the second (top) floor of a popular, modern complex situated adjacent to the Bristol Road (A38) in a cul-de-sac close to The Meadows Primary School. This property has two good sized bedrooms, a spacious living room with a kitchen area off, a bath/shower room and secure allocated parking. This is a bright, versatile and well maintained apartment with upvc, double glazing throughout, gas central heating and impressive views.
This is an excellently located property situated in a cul-de-sac just off the A38 (the Bristol Road) and within a mile from Longbridge and Northfield Stations and Northfield Town Centre with its array of diverse local amenities, yet, only approximately two miles to the south of the property, one will find the edge of the green belt and the beautiful Lickey Hills and Cofton Park. The University of Birmingham and The Queen Elizabeth Hospital are also proximate and easily accessible. Located only six miles south of Birmingham City Centre, one can easily access Broad Street and Brindley Place with its historic canal system, the UCI multi screen cinema, a number of 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 world famous Mailbox and the Bull Ring Shopping Centre are also a short distance away. The A38 is one of the City's main arterial routes so the M42, the M40, the M6, and New Street Station are easily attainable and regular trains from New Street Station operate to London and Birmingham International for the NEC and Birmingham International Airport.
The apartment has an entry phone, double-glazing throughout and gas central heating. All internal walls are painted (except where specified below) and most of the windows face Bristol Road on one side or the private courtyard on the other.
