1 Bedroom Flat For Sale

Davidson Estates is delighted to offer this immaculate, executive one bedroom apartment with a secure allocated parking space situated on the ground floor of the prestigious Branston Street development. The property is excellently located and will appeal to the investor and the first time buyer equally.

The apartment is situated on Hockley Street with the entrance to the complex located on Branston Street, a quiet one way street, in the heart of the historic Jewellery Quarter, which is now benefiting from substantial regeneration and extensive restoration while preserving the unique ambience of the area. The Jewellery Quarter, described as a national treasure and unlike any other historic landscape in the world, 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.

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.

The apartment is a short walk to St. Paul's Square, a picturesque, green square based around the church and surrounded by fashionable bars, restaurants and the world famous Jam House. Broad Street and Brindley Place are approximately fifteen minutes' walk away and there one can find a number of bars, high quality restaurants and theatres, the Sea Life Centre, the National Indoor Arena, the International Convention Centre, the magnificent new library and Symphony Hall, the home of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. The apartment also offers easy access to the main commercial and shopping areas including the Mailbox and Bull Ring Shopping Centre and to the M6, Snow Hill Station, the Metro link and New Street Station where regular trains operate from London to Birmingham International for the NEC and Birmingham International Airport.

The apartment has double-glazing throughout. All internal walls are painted or tiled and the apartment is heated by way of storage heaters and electric wall heaters. The apartment is situated on the ground floor and briefly comprises a large living/dining area, a separate, fully fitted kitchen, a bathroom and a double bedroom. The property comes with a secure, allocated parking space.
