Overview

DoorStepAgents present a large luxury one bedroom apartment on the 19th floor of the iconic and award-winning Cube development in Birmingham city centre. It is situated in the West side of The Cube facing into the atrium, with stunning views of the renowned Library of Birmingham. The apartment is ideal for professionals, students, or for an investor looking for an apartment that achieves high rental values. The current market rental value is approximately £900 pcm.

Features

Features include climate control throughout via thermostats in each room, which operate the underfloor heating. The integrated system means there are no wall-mounted radiators to affect furniture positions or eat into valuable floor space. The lounge and bedroom also feature remote control lighting which can be set to four different levels. The apartment has two sliding doors, one between the lounge and the kitchen, and one between the lounge and the bedroom, which disappear into the walls to maximise flexibility. The adjoining walls to the next apartments are solid, meaning noise levels are kept to a minimum and you cannot hear neighbours, unlike many other residential blocks. This really is a unique and exceptional apartment, which stands out from other developments in Birmingham.

Security

The building is highly secure, requiring an electronic card to gain entry, and CCTV is installed on every floor. A concierge is available during working hours, and security staff are on site 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Secure underground parking is also available, which is accessed via a high-tech automated car lift, which parks and retrieves your car for you. Parking spaces can be rented from The Cube management.

It also includes a luxury gym, which features spa facilities including a sauna, steam rooms and a swimming pool. Only a few minutes' walk from New Street Station, The Cube is situated in the heart of Birmingham city centre, and is adjacent to The Mailbox, allowing easy access to its many restaurants, bars and shops, including Harvey Nichols.
