** EWS1 rating of B1 (pass) **
This spacious and high quality one bedroom apartment at The Hub with secure parking, is located in the Gun Quarter – bordering both the Jewellery Quarter and the City Core.
The apartment is light and airy, with floor to ceiling windows in the living room and bedroom. Through the large windows, you can access the balcony which offers plenty room for various items of furniture and overlooks the Canal, perfect for relaxing on a sunny day! The property is finished to a good standard, with fully fitted bathroom with feature bath-tub, and shower over. The kitchen has also been replaced recently with a high-quality quartz worktop and splashback, wrapping around the kitchen creating a breakfast bar space for guests. The appliances in the kitchen include integrated fridge and freezer, integrated twin oven and hob. The property also includes separate airing cupboard with plumbing for a washing machine.
Situated next to The Jewellery Quarter, The Gun Quarter offers easy access to Birmingham’s famous St Paul’s Square, meaning you are only a short walk away from a friendly village vibe if you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the City. The Gun Quarter has a rich industrial heritage of ammunitions, motorbikes, and really is the up-and-coming sibling of the city. With only a short 0.2 mile walk to ‘Yogahaven’ in the Jewellery Quarter, you could become a regular for excellent yoga classes or if a weekend craft beer is more your thing, head over to ‘The Wolf’, a rustic local beer bar, serving up a fantastic range of local brews.
The development is 0.2 miles from Snow Hill station and 0.7 miles from New Street station, meaning it is perfectly located to access the city and beyond!
Service charge figures for 2021 and early 2022 have been paid already, but these are significantly more than the normal figure due to major works to ensure the fire safety of the building meets requirements. This has taken the EWS1 rating to a B1 as a result.
The Gun Quarter, has a rich industrial heritage of ammunitions, motor bikes and more. It’s yet to be gentrified and you could describe it as being a little rough around the edges and it’s home to a hefty student population. But as everywhere in the centre things are slowly starting to change – investment is being made. Partly as it has JQ on its doorstep, and in 2026, it won’t be that far at all from the HS2 Terminal either.
The mood. There’s a distinct student feel and the overall impression is of a place that’s a little forgotten. But not for long…
