Camden Village is one of the most sought-after developments in the Jewellery Quarter. This one-bedroom duplex would suit someone who wants easy access to Birmingham City Centre for work or recreation, without living in the epicentre of the city. Finished to an incredibly high standard, this property also offers the rarity of space for a buyer who works from home.

Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter has been described by English Heritage as a place that “ …. has a particular combination of structures associated with jewellery and metalworking which does not seem to exist anywhere else in the world. It's a national treasure”. Having undergone much redevelopment over the past few years, the JQ has its own vibrant mix of independent shops, bars and restaurants, notably including Opheem, the Michelin Starred Indian restaurant of Chef Patron Aktar Islam. You will also be spoilt for choice with some of the world’s finest jewellery makers on your doorstep.

On the market for £210,000, this spacious duplex is an expansive first-floor property located within a redeveloped red brick warehouse building. Finished to a very high standard and decorated in a neutral palette, this property is deceptively spacious and would be a perfect purchase for a time-poor busy professional.

Downstairs

The downstairs of the duplex is where you’ll find the bedroom and bathroom. The double bedroom has convenient floor-to-ceiling built-in wardrobes, and with windows to two walls, there’s plenty of natural light giving the bedroom a light and airy ambience. The perfect space to retire to at the end of a busy day. Additional storage can be found in the storage cupboard on the ground floor. The bathroom is finished to a high specification of modern grey tones with tiled walls and tiled floor. The white three-piece suite comprises a bath with shower over, pedestal basin and low-level WC. With His and Hers bathroom cabinets there’s plenty of storage space for two. The heated towel rail will add to the luxurious feel as you wrap yourself up after taking a bath or shower.

Upstairs

The open plan living space forms the upstairs of the property. A high ceiling makes this area very roomy, again, having windows to two walls means that there’s no shortage of natural light. You’ll be spoilt for choice as to how this room is laid out. With soft furnishing at one end of the room, there’s ample space for a dining table and chairs at the kitchen end, ideal for entertaining friends, or just whiling away the evenings together over a meal and a glass of wine or two. There’s also space to work from home, something that many buyers are putting at the top of their list, following the pandemic. The open-plan kitchen will turn your mealtimes into social occasions, as it forms the far end of the open-plan duplex. The integrated appliances give the kitchen area a modern finish, with clean lines and finished to a high standard. The main dilemma will be who to invite over for dinner first.

Location

With a B1 postcode, Camden Village is just a 10 minute walk into Birmingham City Centre, with its famous Bull Ring Shopping Centre, theatres, restaurants, Chinese Quarter and leisure facilities. The Jewellery Quarter train station is a 5 minute walk from Camden Village which also serves as a tram stop, with regular trams into the City Centre. Snow Hill station is within walking distance with a regular service to London Marylebone.

Birmingham City Centre

Not only will you have full access to the city and everything that it has to offer, but you’ll be able to make the most of being able to work, live and play all in one place too. The heart of business and leisure with the transformed Birmingham New Street station and The Bullring shopping centre, Birmingham really does offer the ultimate city centre lifestyle, with a host of fantastic apartments, townhouses and penthouses on offer to suit your needs. Plus if you fancy living close to the buzzing Jewellery Quarter or trendy Digbeth, you’ll have easy access to both too!

Transport

You’ll be spoilt for choice with transport options in Birmingham City Centre.

By road, the M6, M5 and M40 motorways provide easy access to London, Manchester, Liverpool and the South West, making the city the perfect central base. Plus the city also has a host of excellent rail links via New Street, Moor Street, Snow Hill stations, and commuters will also be pleased to know that HS2 is set to make reaching the capital easier than ever.

And don’t forget about the handy Metro system, which also has extension plans, and Digbeth coach station too!

Schools

Across the B1 and B6 postcodes, Birmingham is home to a range of schools, from primaries to academies and some of the country’s top rated independents. Some of the city centre’s best include: St Thomas C of E Academy, Birmingham Ormiston Academy and Central Academy.

Amenities

Love food and dining out? Then Birmingham City Centre really is the location for you! In this buzzing, vibrant community you have plenty of fantastic options quite literally on your doorstep. From Colmore Row (the business district with up-market bars and restaurants such as The Alchemist), to The Mailbox (home to several luxury chains such as Aluna with its mesmerizing cocktails) and China Town (the best place to get authentic Chinese food in the whole city), there really is something for everyone.

The city centre is also home to five Michelin Star restaurants (including Adam’s with its carefully selected tasting menus), has a thriving independent food scene (Marmalade on Broad Street is one of our favourites for lunch) and is also a haven for shoppers. Well when you have The Bullring and the New Street station Grand Central shops on your doorstep, it would be rude not to browse every now and then!

Public spaces

One of the main benefits of living in Birmingham City Centre is that it is really pedestrianised, which means getting out and enjoying all of its public spaces is a total breeze. And there is certainly plenty to see – from Cathedral Square, to Colmore Row, Victoria Square and the Education Quarter, you’ll be able to take in the architecture and history of the city at your own pace. Plus don’t forget about the picturesque canals throughout the City Centre too – we think they make the perfect place to take a stroll after a hard day at work!

Things to do

There are plenty of options to keep you entertained in Birmingham City Centre – and getting bored is pretty impossible! Brindley Place in the business district not only has plenty of bars and restaurants, but is also home to the Sea Life Centre and the National Indoor Arena. If you love seeing big name acts live, this is certainly the place to go! Plus you’ll also find The Electric Cinema (the UK’s oldest working cinema), Hippodrome, ICC, Town Hall and Repertory Theatre in the city too – when it comes to culture, Birmingham really does have it all!
