Ultimate in home security for apartment with original 1800s jeweller’s walk-in safe

Well-heeled couples with expensive rings, bracelets, earrings and necklaces will be curiously attracted to an apartment in central Birmingham that’s being marketed by Davidson Estates.

Because the luxury residence in the Sydenham Place development at 26b Tenby Street comes with its very own walk-in jewellers’ safe room.

Ben Davidson, director of Edgbaston-based Davidson Estates, which has a busy branch office in the city centre, said: “There can’t be many luxury apartments that come with such a secure feature as a walk-in jewellers’ safe room.

“But then there aren’t that many conversions of Grade II-listed buildings that happen to be located in the world-famous Jewellery Quarter.”

Apartment 2 at Sydenham Place is for sale at £299,995 and comprises of 767 sq ft of space on the upper ground floor that includes a large entrance cloakroom and hallway with storage, and an open-plan living and dining area with designer kitchen.

There’s also a king-sized master bedroom with dressing room, the largest bathroom in the development with bath and shower, as well as the walk-in feature jewellers’ safe room, with its antique door.

The safe room can be used for pretty much anything and the developers will fit it out however the new owners want it.

Sydenham Place is a gated mix of old and new residences which consists of a pair of three-bedroomed duplex apartments, three two-bedroomed apartments, and a large, executive one-bedroomed apartment.

There are also three town houses, each with three bedrooms, with four offices on the ground and lower-ground floors.

The high-quality units in the Urban Rise Developments project range from £299,995 to £599,995 and are being marketed by joint agents, although Davidson Estates is the first to arrange and complete a sale.

However there have been some reservations over the last few weeks meaning there are only three apartments, three town houses and two commercial units now available.

Mr Davidson added: “Sydenham Place is a stunning development where we’ve already sold the first unit and we’re now busy handling enquiries for this feature apartment and other units from potential buyers.”

Andrew Chan and Israr Iqbal, co-directors of Urban Rise Developments, said: “We are very pleased with the high level of specification and finishes we have provided in all of the apartments.

“However, Apartment 2 is extra special because of the unique nature of the large walk-in safe room. It’s always special when something of such famous historic heritage can be restored to its former glory and still remains in fully working order.”

Construction work on the apartments completed on 20 November with phase two on the town houses starting this month (January 2021) with plans for it to be completed by the summer.

The development is a short walk from the Jewellery Quarter’s vibrant St Paul’s Square, just 15-minutes from Colmore Row and 20-minutes from New Street train station.
