Property Description

A great opportunity to purchase one of the biggest 2 bed apartments in the Kettleworks development. The Kettleworks was released for sale off plan by the developer Seven Capital in 2015 and sold out within 2 months! The build completion of the apartment was in January 2019. This apartment was used as the show home when Kettleworks was first built and is known as one of the best apartments in the development.

This unique, large ground floor apartment is perfect for a first time buyer or investor looking for something a little bit different. With its own front door and stairs to the living area, as soon as you step inside you will notice its quirky design and large dual aspect windows. At a size of 867 sq ft, this City Centre Urban living pad is not your normal 'boxy' apartment as it's one of the largest 2 beds within the development.

The Kettleworks is a major residential development in Birmingham's vibrant Jewellery Quarter, set within the recent St George's Urban Village scheme. The Jewellery Quarter is a designated conservation area and proposed World Heritage Site and is already a prestigious and highly desired part of Birmingham. It is experiencing further development as some of the old factories are converted into apartments, restaurants and shops. It is only a short distance to all that Birmingham City Centre has to offer. The Kettleworks is located in the heart of this historic district.

Apartment specifications provide superb, generously proportioned open plan designs including:

* Integrated kitchen appliances to include oven, hob, extractor, dishwasher, washer/dryer and fridge/freezer.
* Wood effect flooring to lounge, kitchen and hallway. Carpet to bedrooms. Luxury vinyl to bathroom.
* Full height wall tiling around bath/shower.
* Ladder style polished chrome heated towel rail.
* Brushed stainless steel and chrome ironmongery throughout.
* Hardwood veneered, solid core entrance door with spy hole.
* Hardwood veneered internal doors throughout.
* Audio intercom system.
* Low energy LED down lighters to kitchen area.

WHAT THE OWNER SAYS:
"I decided to buy in The Kettleworks as it is one of the most popular developments in the Jewellery Quarter. I recognised this was the place to be in the Jewellery Quarter and that apartments in a more prestigious building with facilities such as a gym and concierge are more likely to increase in value. The apartment has its own private entrance door with stairs leading to the open plan living area which has large dual aspect windows. These unique features along with the large internal size is what attracted me to purchase this particular apartment as it was a lot more unique and quirky than the rest of the apartments in the building which I felt were all the same. Although there isn't any allocated parking space, it's very easy to find parking on the surrounding roads. I currently let the apartment and it has always attracted good professional tenants, is always in demand and gives a good return. I have been fortunate that when one tenant moves out a new one has moved in soon after, minimising any void period. The service charge is also very reasonable considering that there is a concierge and gym."
