Loft Style Apartment

A stunning industrial loft-style apartment has gone on sale for almost £1million. This was once housed a former office used by Britain’s iconic MI5 security agency.

Boasting its own high-spec touches including its own cinema room, private garage and handcrafted fixtures this stylish home rooted in the heart of Birmingham’s jewellery quarter could make even James Bond jealous.

The £950,000 apartment was developed as part of a regeneration project by RIBA award-winning developer Javelin Block. It’s designed to bring the disused building back to life while honouring its former use as a West Midlands base for MI5.

The building was originally used for workshops before the counter-intelligence agency took it over. And used it as offices known locally as Viceroy House.

In 2011, the site was converted into four full-floor loft flats.

The flats include exposed brickwork, oak floorboards, zinc-clad kitchens and concrete ceilings.

All of the fixtures were handcrafted by local tradesmen. And details were included as a nod to the building’s industrial heritage.

The first floor flat has 3,280 sq ft of accommodation with a 60ft long open plan kitchen/living area, two double bedrooms, both with ensuite bathrooms and a cinema room.

It also has private lift access and its own private garage. It’s accessed at street level with an internal door at the back providing private access by foot to the apartment.

The building is on Water Street, a 15-minute walk from the city centre and well served by public transport.

At one point the Jewellery Quarter accounted for 40 per cent of the jewellery manufactured in the UK. It suffered a decline around the Great Depression but has since been regenerated and now provides a mix of residential, bars, restaurants, shops and creative businesses.
