Historical Building x Modern Vibes

Paul Clarke

Sitting proudly in Birmingham's iconic Jewellery Quarter, 28 Mary Street is a unique house that combines tradition and modern. This extraordinary building, arranged over four floors, was built in 1818 and has been identified as the earliest house and "shopping" development in the area. Over the last 200 years the building has been home to prominent Brummies, craftsmen, artisans. It has been carefully restored and modernised into a stunning home.

A short distance from St Paul's Square, Colmore Row and New Street the house is perfectly positioned to enjoy Birmingham as well as access transport links to whizz you throughout the country. Replete with wonderful bespoke details, displaying the architect's style of juxtaposing industrial and listed features to create a home full of light and space.

The building itself was constructed as a house and workshops by James Kimberley, a well-known speculative builder and property owner in Birmingham during the nineteenth century. The exposed brickwork, stripped back interior and wooden beams are a gentle nod to an industrious past.

The impressive property is entered through an inconspicuous front door on Mary Street and you enter into a vast entrance space that may have originally been two workshops. This space has been brought up to modern standards but would still be perfect for someone who wants to live and work from home.

The kitchen is a wonderful social space and has fantastic volume, with light filtering through the impressive glass wall that spans two floors. There is an effortless connection to the courtyard garden where there is a real sense of tranquility.

Head up the industrial stairs from the kitchen and onto the first floor where you find a reception room over-looking the courtyard. The high ceilings and epic window gives this a NYC loft vibe and is the perfect space for either entertaining friends or curling up with Netflix after a long day. 

There are three double bedrooms and a bathroom split between the first and second floor. All rooms have been beautifully designed, expertly crafted and retain subtle historic features. 

Summary

  • Style : Historic building with modern vibes
  • Highlights : Mix of open plan entertaining spaces and intimate rooms.
  • Three Words : Stunning. Spacious. House.
  • Our favourite part The impressive space in a cool part of Birmingham.

Location

The Jewellery Quarter

This city is not second best

Birmingham is hot right now. Businesses, small and very large, are flocking here, creative types are generating a buzz and independent shops, cafes and bars are on every corner. There are more Michelin stars than any other city outside of London and the mighty balti is brilliant. We Love Brum.

We also love a little fact so... Birmingham minister Joseph Priestley discovered oxygen in 1774. I suppose the city helping people breathe fresh clean air by having 571 parks totalling over 3,500 hectares of public open space (more than any other European city) and having the largest urban nature reserve in Europe is a pretty fitting tribute to the Mr Priestley. Ahhhh breathe!

Birmingham is enjoying a renaissance and it is easy to see why. There is a great feel to the city, employment is up, Grand Central Station is open and full of shoppers and commuters, the new Metro is nearly fully running and the place is alive with the sound of excitement. We Love Brum.

"Birmingham has a great feel to it. There are loads of cool things to see and do, there is a vibrant community and the people are lovely. We Love Brum."

The Jewellery Quarter is surrounded by historic buildings harking back to an industrial age, there is a neighbourhood feel and a special atmosphere.

We love the Jewellery Quarter for its independent vibe and community feel.

The location of The Jewellery Quarter makes access to the CBD and City Centre quick and easy, with a short walk over the flyover (and a stop at Urban Coffee on Church Street). Conollys and Loki provide a plethora of wine selections and La Cuciana Rustica on Ludgate Hill just up the road serves the best Italian in town (in Mrs C's opinion).

The great thing about the area is that it is continuing to grow. The opportunities for businesses and homeowners to thrive is ever growing. The area is well connected for commuting, but also enables a work life balance.

  • Closest village/town: The Jewellery Quarter has a great neighbourhood feel
  • Stores: The Bullring & The Mailbox will do some damage to your credit card
  • Supermarket: Forget traditional, head to China Town for some great food
  • Pubs: A pint at The Queens Head
  • Walks: Along the beautiful canals
