The affluent suburb of Edgbaston sits to the south-west of Birmingham City Centre. Viceroy Close is conveniently placed off the Bristol Road, accessed via a long, private driveway with landscaped gardens to the front. We highly recommend early viewing of this property, which has become available for sale due to the relocation of the current owners. There is no onward chain.

The first thing that will hit you as you enter the apartment is its stunning art deco interior. It’s unusual to find so many original features in a property of this age, but this immaculately presented apartment retains many of its original features including Crittall windows, all cornicing and door handles. There are also electric remote-controlled blinds in each room.

Built in 1937, Viceroy Close was designed by the renowned inter-war architects Mitchell and Bridgwater. It is thought to be the finest pre-WW2 block of flats in Birmingham and is a shining example of art deco design and build. The apartments are set in a nine-acre estate, which incorporates five acres of landscaped grounds and manicured lawns. There is ample parking for residents and visitors alike.

Viceroy close has it's own on-site caretaker and grounds staff, CCTV monitoring and external security lighting. The water supply comes from an artesian well within the grounds of Viceroy Close. Heating and hot water are provided by a communal heating system and are included in the service charge.

As an apartment owner at Viceroy Close you automatically have one share in the development. Viceroy Close Limited is owned and run by the residents of the apartments and it is maintained to a high standard.

Internal

The mansion-style apartment is located on the fourth floor and is accessed by a front entrance door (key access for residents and intercom system for visitors) into the communal stairwell. The lift up to the fourth floor will sweep you back in time with its caged doors and is guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

The large, inviting reception hall features a low-maintenance wooden floor and plenty of space for welcoming visitors into your new home.

Leading off from the reception hall, the sitting room is spacious and finished to a very high standard. Cold winter evenings will be a thing of the past, as you enjoy relaxing in front of your very own open coal fire, with art deco mantel and surround. The size of the sitting room offers versatility: multiple soft sofas for the entire family to gather together, minimalist chic or in-keeping with the 1930s décor of the apartment, the possibilities are endless.

The art deco theme continues in the self-contained dining room, which again, is immaculately presented. You’ll be host with the most as you entertain friends and family into the small hours, host Christmas dinners, celebratory meals and ‘just because’ soirees. A true space for entertaining, it’s rare to find such a large separate dining room in an apartment.

The fitted kitchen has an expanse of base and wall-mounted storage units, as well as ample workspace to keep the keenest of cooks happy. Included within the sale price are the fitted eye-level Siemens oven, built-in electric hob with extractor above, Siemens dishwasher Siemens fridge freezer, and Samsung Washer Dryer.

All three bedrooms are finished in the same style, are double in size and feature electric remote-controlled blinds. Storage woes will soon be forgotten. Bedroom one features wardrobe and cupboard storage around the bed space as well as a walk-in wardrobe and bedroom two also has its own walk-in wardrobe/cupboard. Bedroom three is currently being used as a gentleman’s dressing room but could easily revert back to a double bedroom. For those looking to work from home, bedroom three would make the perfect home office space.

The family bathroom has recently been refurbished and is in-keeping with the art deco theme of the rest of the apartment. The suite comprises a WC, bath with shower over and basin set within a storage unit. The current owners have assured us that the water pressure from the shower is immense, due to the water system within the block.

The property is completed by a separate guest WC, an airing cupboard, and a single garage.

Furniture: the vendors are willing to discuss the sale of the art deco furniture within the apartment, much of which – including the burr walnut dining suite – was designed by leading art deco furniture makers, H&L Epstein.
