Entry to the apartment is via a minimum of two doors thus making the apartment extremely secure. No part of the apartment fronts the street. One enters the complex via the side door from Vittoria Street, through the covered and renovated passageway and access to the apartment can be gained directly from the courtyard or from the communal entryway which also gives access to the commercial office and the two apartments on the first floor. The communal entry is block paved with a ceiling light and a fire safety light. Once through the front door one will enter the Vestibule (2.14m x 1.80m) which has high quality wood effect flooring, a radiator and a window which faces the covered passageway leading to the courtyard. In addition, there is a ceiling light, a smoke alarm, exposed brickwork and a storage cupboard housing the fuse box.

A door from the vestibule leads to the guest toilet which has a tiled floor, tiled walls to hip height, some exposed brickwork, a washbasin with a fitted cupboard below and a toilet. There is also a shaving socket, a heated towel rail, a ceiling light, an extractor and a large storage area under the stairs with a tiled floor and a wall mounted light.

5.91m x 3.00m
A further door from the vestibule gives access to the separate kitchen which has a lovely, contemporary, ergonomic design. The modern kitchen design co-exists beautifully with the Victorian “industrial” feel to the apartment creating a most appealing living space. The kitchen has the ubiquitous wood effect flooring, with some walls being painted and some benefitting from exposed brickwork. The kitchen has ample base and wall units with downlights and white doors. There are beautiful wooden work surfaces incorporating a stainless steel sink and drainer with a chrome mixer tap. Finally one will find an integral dishwasher, a four ring halogen hob with an oven underneath and an extractor above, an integral fridge and freezer, a radiator, two custom built windows overlooking the attractive communal courtyard, a cupboard housing the combination boiler, ample electric sockets, flush halogen spotlights and a wall mounted security entry-phone.

7.84m x 3.06m
This is a stunningly beautiful and spacious room with a true raw feel. Entry is via a door from the kitchen with two glass inserts and the room is both bright and airy with the light from the three, new, designer, South facing, arched windows built to resemble the originals. There is wood effect flooring, two radiators, exposed brickwork and exposed beams set into the raised ceilings, two ceiling lights, a smoke alarm and electric wall sockets.

5.31m x 3.07m
This is another light, spacious room with an entry door with two glass inserts, wood effect flooring, exposed brickwork, two of the designer, bespoke, arched windows overlooking the courtyard and a radiator. There is also a door from the bedroom giving direct access to the renovated courtyard. Finally there is a ceiling light, electric wall sockets, original industrial features, and a smoke alarm.

2.73m x 2.10m
This is a delightfully designed and renovated area with a beautiful tiled floor, tiled or painted walls and the room is lit by two windows both with translucent glass. There is a toilet, a shower cubicle with a folding glass door, a washbasin with fitted storage cupboard below and a wall mounted mirror above, a heated towel rail, ceiling spotlights, a shaving socket and an extractor.

A door from the street leads to a secure covered passageway with a restored block paved base and white painted walls. Here one will find the gas and electricity meters for the apartments and the covered passage has a smoke alarm, a ceiling light and a fire safety light. To the left as one approaches the courtyard are outbuildings which house the bike and bin stores and the communal courtyard has a block paved base and raised flower beds and is surrounded by a brick wall.


The Enamel Works, on Vittoria Street, is a 3-storey, Grade II listed, mid-terrace building of brick-built construction surmounted by a pitched, tiled roof, dating from 1855-1859. Historical records show that it was one of the first purpose-built jewellery workshops in the Quarter with an early example of the characteristic long, narrow rear wing. The well-balanced front elevation is one of the most ornate and attractive in the street, while large South-facing windows in the rear wing 'shopping' extension overlook an East-West light-well, designed to maximise natural lighting for intricate and detailed work (the local term 'shopping' refers to the workshops, rather than to retail activity). Few exterior alterations have been made, and importantly, the building fa硤e is almost completely original. The property has been sympathetically adapted to provide a self-contained three bedroom penthouse on the top floor, two self-contained apartments on the first floor, a single, mixed-use office/workshop and a one bedroom apartment on the ground floor. All apartments are unique, incorporating original or sympathetically restored features and all boast the same lofty, raised ceilings, spacious rooms and high specification fixtures and fittings essential for top quality, luxurious city centre living.


The Enamel Works is located in the heart of the Jewellery Quarter, described as a national treasure and unlike any other historic landscape in the world. The Jewellery Quarter attracts a vibrant community with its abundance of craft bars, bustling cafes and stylish restaurants. And, with over 200 listed buildings nearby, you can still peer into the rich heritage of this iconic district of Birmingham, made famous by its array of artisan jewellers, goldsmiths and glassmakers, whose products are the envy of the world. It is hardly surprising that over 6,000 residents already call the Jewellery Quarter their home. The area is enhanced by landmark buildings and features like St. Paul's Square, the last Georgian Square in Birmingham and boasts the largest concentration of businesses producing jewellery in Europe.
