City Professionals are First to move into the Minories

Within four weeks of deciding to continue living in the City, executives, Alex Johnson and Stephanie Chamberlain became the first purchasers to move into one of only nine townhouses at the exclusive Minories development set right in the heart of the Jewellery Quarter.

Cedar Homes UK Limited launched this distinguished Grade II Listed development, including their collection of just nine townhouses in August of last year.

After a frantic few weeks Alex, who works in the Market Research Industry, and Stephanie, who runs her own New Media Project Management Consultancy, moved into their home in time to relax and enjoy the Christmas period.

Explaining why they chose the Minories, Alex says: “It was a real combination of factors that made us decide that the Minories was the place for us.

These included the history behind the development, the high quality of both the finish and fittings alongside the unique layout of the house, including the spectacular sunroom at the top of our townhouse.

Additionally we felt that it was very unusual to find a new townhouse of this quality so close to the city centre.

Straight after moving in we knew that we had made the right decision – the house has lived up to all of our expectations – the layout, quality and location has been everything we expected.


Whilst the intimacy and privacy of the gated development has been particularly nice, adding a sense of security that you don’t normally get from a townhouse on the street.”


Discussing City Living, Alex concludes: “ We chose to continue living in the City as we really enjoy being in the thick of it and we plan to spend at least the next five years enjoying life at the Minories.

With excellent commutability, which we both require in our professional lives, and easy access to all of the nightlife and amenities, City Living really suits our needs. We especially love the Jewellery Quarter because it has some great bars and restaurants.”

With over 60% of the development now sold time is running out for people to purchase one of the six remaining townhouses.

One of the remaining properties is Plot D a large three-bedroom townhouse available now and priced £359,950. Inside, prospective purchasers will find a traditional style property, which is light and airy throughout, benefiting from large sash windows and high ceilings.

On the ground floor there is an entrance hallway providing excellent storage space, off which there is the guest cloakroom, a large open plan lounge and dining room and a separate kitchen complete with handmade Meerway kitchen units and a full set of integrated appliances.

The first floor offers visitors the property’s luxurious master suite, complete with fitted wardrobes and an truly special walk in en-suite bathroom which is luxuriously appointed to include a Victorian style freestanding bath and large multi jet shower unit.

The property is completed on the top floor, where you will find two large bedrooms and a contemporary house bathroom complete with multi jet shower. Outside of the property buyers will find a private terrace and parking space set alongside the internal courtyard complete with an exclusive entrance with a unique entrance gate designed and built in partnership with English Heritage.

Ross McMillan of Cedar Homes UK Limited says: “We are delighted to welcome Alex and Stephanie to their new home at the Minories. The development has been a real labour of love for all of the team at Cedar.

When we set out many people thought that attempting to sell large townhouses in the centre of the City would be a real challenge. Particularly due to the fact that many city dwellers decide to live in modern apartments and penthouses. Everybody who visits cannot believe that homes of this scale are available to buy now in the heart of Birmingham.

With three of the townhouses already sold and just six more remaining we are urging anybody who is interested in seeing what we have to offer to contact us.”

The prices of the remaining townhouses start from £359,950. For full details on the complete range of magnificent homes available at The Minories, please call Ross McMillan on 0121 236 6191 or visit the website –
