Plans have been approved by Birmingham City Council for the development of a luxury narrow townhouse in Birmingham city centre.
The bespoke three bedroom home, by Mercia Real Estate (MRE), is located within a narrow infill plot between 85 Cornwall Street and the Grade II listed building at 50-52 Newhall Street. It includes a contemporary design, notably a bespoke patterned façade, that is sympathetic the arts and crafts motifs of its listed neighbours.
Unique in its layout, the building extends to four upper stories in addition to a basement. It features inverted living spaces three bedrooms on the lower floors, an open plan living area on the top floor with roof terrace. There is a striking glazed light-well between the buildings designed to flood the space with natural light.
Samuel Clark, CEO of Mercia Real Estate said: “This exciting development will provide a modern, yet complementary aesthetic to its surrounding buildings, whilst filling and tidying the space that currently exists there.
“This narrow house will be as stunning as it is unique within the city centre, where the majority of new developments naturally fall under the category of apartments due to the increasing trend to build upwards.
“I look forward to unveiling the property on its completion and I expect demand for its ownership to be high.”
