Mr Clarke thinks :
The location is perfect, and the apartment is comfortable and secure. You’re only a short stroll away from the city.
You really feel the positive energy flowing through the Jewellery Quarter. There’s a vibrant young professional community, as well as independent cafes and ever changing architecture. Nestled amongst all this and the canal is Islington Gates - an immaculate apartment boasting spectacular views across Birmingham museum & art gallery, and library. You can watch the world go by and see the city grow first hand.
This is a popular area of Birmingham, and this stylish open plan home has everything you could want from an urban pad. You’re even walking distance to Centenary Square, Paradise Circus and St Pauls Square. To get to the flat, buzz in through the secure entrance and elevator ride up. Welcome home.
Mrs Clarke loves :
There’s great scope to leave your own mark on this home. Time to get those creative juices flowing.
The apartment is a blank canvas ready for you to move in and leave your own mark. The bright main entrance leads to the front-facing entertaining, cooking, living, and chilling space. The kitchen has plenty of storage and a great amount of worktop surface. It is nicely separated but retains transparency to create a sociable space. There is also the scope to remove the cupboard and install a peninsula, perfect for chefs and entertainers alike.
The bedroom gives you plenty of natural light in the morning and throughout the day. We could probably spend a whole Sunday here. Lay back, turn on Netflix, soak in the view, and enjoy some peace and quiet. The smart storage solutions in this room are a big bonus, including a fitted wardrobe. Next-door you’ll find the fully tiled walk-in shower bathroom with underfloor heating. Bliss.
There’s oodles of cupboards in this flat, so you can store just about anything you want. Whether you are looking for a Pied-à-terre amongst the city lights, a first-time buyer, or looking to become a landlord, this is a great investment.
- Three words : Location. Location. Location.
Our favourite part
That view. We could never get tired of it.
A national treasure
The Jewellery Quarter is an exciting industry hub; home to more than 100 retailers, diamond dealers, and workshops, as well as the Museum of the Jewellery Quarter, with a preserved 1980s workshop. All around there's gems, from the Georgian buildings that line grassy St. Paul's Square to the surrounding 18th-century St. Paul’s Church.
You’re never too far away from the best Birmingham has to offer. You’ll find plenty of amusement at The Jam House, in St Pauls Square amongst other adventures. Stretch your legs along the canal to Brindley Place where you can take in the latest exhibit at the Ikon Gallery, whilst enjoying a flat white from Yorks Cafe.
For lovers of the Arts, you have Birmingham Museum, Symphony Hall, the Hippodrome, Alexandra Theatre, and the Crescent Theatre to choose from as well as other fringe companies and art house cinemas to entertain you.
