Living in the heart of Birmingham is full of excitement. The House of York is a private oasis in the middle of the city. It’s like living in a boutique hotel.
8, House Of York is a large two bedroom apartment with stylish open plan living spaces in the heart of Birmingham. The late Victorian Grade II fronted, luxury development has a private courtyard which is entered by a secure, attractive gate of Charlotte Street. Sitting between the Jewellery Quarter and Colmore Row and next to St Paul’s Square, The House of York is at the centre of this great city.
At the junction of Newhall Street and Charlotte Street, look away from St Paul’s Square and tucked along the street you will see The House of York; an old printing warehouse. The facade is Grade II listed and gives you a glimpse to the industrial past of this part of the city. Head through the password protected electric gates and you start to see that the developers have transformed the building into a luxury residential development of 31 apartments.
Apartment 8 is tucked at the back of the courtyard, making it quiet and peaceful. Buzz on the intercom system and you will be let in. The day we were talking photos the painters were in the building and have given the communal areas a fresh lick of paint. Head up one flight of stairs and number 8 is on your right.
The long hallways carpeted you can see through to the open plan kitchen/ living room. The first thing you notice about this room is how large it is. The French doors open out to a veranda looking out across an inspiring cityscape. The 21ft long room is perfect for entertaining and is split into a kitchen area and a sitting area. The kitchen is in great condition and has fully integrated dishwasher, washer/dryer and tall fridge freezer. Stainless steel electric oven, hob, extractor hood and sink give the room the much loved modern vibe. There is lots of storage space to keep a minimalist and clean feel. Between the kitchen and living spaces there is ample room for a dining table.
The sitting area is perfect for lounging and watching a movie on a huge, wall hung TV. You can be chilling on the sofa, looking out across the city in the peace and quiet of your own pad.
