The front door opens into an inviting entrance hall, with two large storage cupboards and a WC. The recessed ceiling spotlights and minimalist décor give the apartment a modern, contemporary feel which continues in the main living area.
Light and incredibly spacious, the living area is flooded by natural light, via the floor to ceiling glass doors which open out onto the private terrace. With ample space to accommodate large sofas, as well as a dining area, you can entertain your friends and family in luxurious surroundings. The built-in wall units are in-keeping with the sophisticated and space-saving design. Gather together for movie nights in front of your flat-screen TV or enjoy sundowner cocktails on your own private terrace, with skyline views across Britain’s second city.
The open-plan kitchen sits to the side of the dining area, separated by a stone-topped breakfast bar. Unusually for an apartment, there’s work space for the most enthusiastic of cooks to work their magic. The fully integrated Bosch appliances are high-spec and modern, finished in black and stainless steel to compliment the slate grey kitchen cupboards, of which there are plenty. The kitchen is often the hub of the home, and with the breakfast bar and dining area this is no exception. From a midweek grab-and-go breakfast to leisurely weekends, every day will begin on a positive note.
Stairs from the entrance hall lead to the upper floor of the duplex.
The master bedroom with its own en suite shower room and dressing area is the perfect place to escape to after a challenging day. Wake up to views of the Birmingham skyline and enjoy your morning coffee on the balcony, which overlooks the lower level terrace.
Bedrooms 2 and 3 are both double rooms with built-in wardrobes and storage, with bedroom 2 having a doorway out to the balcony.
The family bathroom is stylish and modern, finished in white and grey tiles. Relax in a hot bath or start the day with an invigorating shower as this property offers both options, as well as a double-width basin and again, a generous amount of storage for all of your lotions and potions.
Apartment life needn’t mean no outdoor space. With your very own terrace, you can still make the most of lazy summer evenings and weekends, taking in the views over the city centre.
