A 'must view' simply stunning autonomous duplex apartment in this converted artisan development in Birmingham's famous Gun Quarter forged from a range of historical buildings dating from the 1830's.

It is the latest quirky development by Javelin Block aimed more at the person who thinks outside of the box rather than wanting to live in one. Designed and built to a very high specification, with spacious zinc clad kitchen and dining area with exposed brickwork. The property has the luxury of two double bedrooms, the master with generously sized en suite. You will be delighted with the witty furnishings, polished concrete floors with under floor heating, a roll topped copper bath with brass fittings in the master bedroom, whilst retaining original features such as exposed beams and vaulted ceilings. There is one secure parking space behind electrically operated gates.

A short walk will take you to St Pauls Square and Jewellery Quarter, offering an eclectic social scene. You will have a 'proper local' the excellent, real ale serving Gunmakers Arms is just around the corner in Bath Street and every one's favourite Indian eatery The Hen & Chickens is just a 10 minute walk to Constitution Hill along with the arty Lord Clifton. There are two great gyms within walking distance too, the Henrietta Street Gym and Pure Gym at Snow Hill Plaza. St Pauls tram station is 10 minutes walk with direct line to West Bromwich and Wolverhampton. In the opposite direction is Snow Hill station (approx 10 mins walk) with direct lines to London Marylebone.

"I bought my property in Comet Works after being a big fan of the Javelin Block developments and missing out previously. I have rented the property out since I bought it and as you can imagine there has always been high demand as it's so quirky and its always fetched a high rent. The property can be sold fully furnished with all the art work or can be redecorated as a blank canvas. Recently all the property owners in Comet Works came together to buy a share of the freehold which is great as we now have greater control of the day-to-day management of the building and we have a much longer lease and no ground rent to pay. The quirky writing on the kitchen wall is an extract from D.H. Lawrence's Sons and Lovers and the massive I LOVE YOU behind the door in bedroom two was a nod to the bromance between myself and the interior designer….I think…..either way it looks very cool and I LOVE IT."

Lease length: Share of freehold - 999 years from 1 January 2017
Service charge: £834pa (Approx.)
