Lock, stock and striking transformation

The home of one of the finest gunmakers in the world has been reborn and proving to be one of Birmingham’s most exciting new apartment schemes as Elevate Property brings gunsmith house back to life

Gunsmith House, which is located on Price Street in the heart of the Gun Quarter, has been transformed into three luxury apartments by Elevate Property Group that echo the distinctive industrial character and unique heritage of the area.

Working with Digbeth-based K4 architects, the unique development will also see a further 82 brand new one and two-bed apartments built to the side of the original building.

Construction work should be completed by early 2024, with selling agents Savills already reporting that 70% of Phase 1 has already been sold.

“The remaking of Gunsmith House is reflecting its raw heritage that dates back to 1901,” explained David Hofton, Sales & Marketing Director at Elevate Property Group.

“The look of it, the feel of it, the execution of it. It will be a place its previous custodians would be proud of, and it is a development that is already proving popular from buyers keen to own or invest in a unique property in the centre of Birmingham.”

He continued: “There are three luxury apartments housed in the original building; a one-bed on the ground floor (with terrace), a two-bed on floor two and a unique two-bed duplex property with mezzanine and vaulted ceilings, both boasting balconies.

“Then we have 82 new build apartments to the side, which are being built around a communal landscaped courtyard.”

Gunsmith House is Elevate Property Group’s twelfth scheme in the heart of Birmingham and taps into the city’s vibrant leisure, cultural and enterprise scenes.

The Price Street location is less than ten minutes’ walk to Snow Hill Station, Colmore Row’s financial district, Birmingham City University and the Birmingham Children’s Hospital making it ideal for professionals and young couples, whilst downsizers will also be attracted to the high-quality spec, balconies and car parking available on selected plots, and proximity to local attractions.

One-bed apartments start from £222,500 with the largest two-bed apartments reaching £520,000. Visit elevatepropertygroup.co.uk
