Property Snapshot

This fabulous apartment with an open-plan layout and mezzanine floor would make a great buy to let investment.

The Victoria Institute was first conceived as a combined museum, library and school of art and science to mark the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria and still functions as a museum. The rear section was added in the early twentieth century as a Secondary School for Girls. This magnificent building received Grade II listing in 1971 and was converted to apartments in 2000. Each apartment was individually designed to make use of the original building.

Retaining many original fixtures and fittings from the original conversion, many buyers will wish to update the kitchen and bathroom, giving an opportunity to put their own mark on the property and make it even more spectacular.

While it would make a fantastic first home, the City Centre location and the magnificent surrounds of the original building make it ideal as a second home or buy to let investment. With the popularity of city breaks there is a need for short term accommodation and this apartment would make a spectacular Airbnb.

The building is entered via the convenient side door on Taylors Lane next to the secure parking or via the magnificent main entrance on Sansome Walk. There is a choice of stairs or a lift to convey you to the first floor where the apartment is located.

As soon as you enter the apartment, there is a sense of scale, thanks to the unusually high ceilings and the huge windows making the space bright and airy. The spacious living area has stylish up-lighting to the wall.

The fitted kitchen is nicely secluded around the corner giving the benefit of open plan living without the sense of living in the kitchen that many modern properties suffer from. The kitchen has a range of wall and base units with worksurfaces over incorporating a stainless-steel sink with mixer tap and drainer. There is also an integrated oven and hob with stainless steel extractor above and a washing machine.

The ground floor is completed by a bathroom with modern white suite including a low-level WC, was wash hand basin with mixer tap and a bath with a shower. There is tiling to the walls, splashbacks and flooring.

The bedroom is located on a mezzanine level and like the kitchen it manages to combine the open-plan layout with privacy from the living area.

Outside
There is an allocated parking space within a secure car park accessed via a remote-controlled gate.
