| THE DEVELOPMENT |

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.

| LOCATION |

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.
