Making use of The Worcester and Birmingham Canal completed in 1815, the first buildings of what was originally the City Flour Mill were constructed in 1843 between Portland Street and the canal. A tall and imposing structure, initially taller than the current building and complete with a crenelated parapet, it was described as one of the city’s most recognizable landmarks after the cathedral.

Converted to apartments in 2008, Flat 47 occupies an enviable corner position within the main building, benefiting from a well- proportioned layout, bright and airy rooms, a south-westerly facing balcony, underfloor heating and an impressive B EPC rating.


Communal Entrance
The building is entered via a bright and airy communal hallway that seamlessly blends the modern apartments with their industrial past. The secure door features an intercom system for visitor access. You can take the lift to the upper floors where Flat 47 is located, but if you take the stairs, you will be rewarded with fantastic views of Worcester from every landing.

Entrance Hall
A welcoming hallway with an intercom system greets you, featuring doors to all rooms and two generously sized storage cupboards. One of these cupboards contains the hot water cylinder and plumbing for a washing machine, thoughtfully kept out of the open-plan living area.

Open-Plan Kitchen / Dining / Living Room
The open-plan living area optimally utilises both its space and location. Double-glazed windows on the side elevation brighten the room and offer a fantastic view towards the cathedral and across the city. Floor-to-ceiling windows at the rear ensure the room is bathed in sunlight throughout the afternoon and evening. The central glazed door provides access to the private balcony.

The kitchen boasts an intelligently designed layout, with units strategically placed along one side of the room to optimize the available space and facilitate convenient arrangement of furniture in both the living and dining areas. The sleek and modern aesthetic is achieved through the use of high gloss black kitchen units, complemented by contrasting work surfaces. Integrated appliances include an electric oven and hob with extractor above, dishwasher and fridge-freezer, enhancing the functionality.

Balcony
The perfect place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or an evening drink. Located off the living room, the generously sized balcony offers great views all around, with the cathedral and the city to the right, the canal to the left and a straight-on view over the Diglis area with the Malvern Hills in the distance.

From here, you can also see the communal car park with your own allocated space, the bin stores and a cycle store.

Bedroom
A double bedroom offering a spacious built-in double wardrobe and a double-glazed window to the rear, offering a similar stunning view to the balcony.

Bathroom
A white suite comprising a low-level WC, washbasin and a panelled bath with a shower over. Recessed shelving and a vanity wall cupboard adds additional storage space.

Mains electricity, water and drainage.

The administration fee is payable upon acceptance by the vendor of an offer from a buyer and a positive completion of an assessment of the buyer’s financial status and ability to proceed.
