Behind the Grade II listed façade of the former Kay's Catalogue headquarters, Neil Grinnall Homes is constructing nine luxurious townhouses situated in the heart of Worcester city centre.
Located off The Tything, only 200 metres from Worcester Foregate Street train station, the 'K2' townhouses are aimed at purchasers who either work in the Cathedral City , or those needing to commute to work by rail. The newly built homes will offer over 1,400 sq ft of spacious accommodation laid out over three floors, all benefiting from a purpose built conservatory and a secure integral garage. Currently under construction, the scheme is scheduled for completion in Autumn 2004, however, purchasers who buy off-plan will benefit from the full selection of fixtures and fittings as well as choosing optional extras.
Neil Grinnall, Chairman of the Neil Grinnall Group commented: "Three bedroom townhouses are not uncommon on the edge of city centres and generally equate to 1,000 sq ft. However, at K2 we are constructing three bedroom, three storey homes which are not only situated right in the heart of Worcester city centre, but are also up to 50 per cent larger than comparable properties.
"I think there is a real market for executive homes in premium locations that don't compromise on space. The townhouses at K2 not only have spacious internal dimensions, they also feature a conservatory leading to a landscaped patio area, perfect for alfresco summer dining. In addition, the integral garage provides more versatile and secure space all within the city centre. I expect people who look to buy here will choose this location because they want to be within walking distance of Worcester 's vibrant array of cultural, leisure and business destinations, without compromising on easy access out of the city."
The specification that will be used at K2 includes brands such as Villeroy & Boch, Porcelanosa, Smeg and Matki. The exceptional interiors and modern architecture will ensure the nine new houses at this scheme stand apart from existing townhouses in Worcester . There are two townhouse designs to select from at K2 and the internal accommodation comprises a large breakfast kitchen, downstairs cloakroom, spacious living area or separate lounge and dining room, a master bedroom with en-suite, two further double bedrooms, a family bathroom and a conservatory.
The Neil Grinnall Group is also building townhouses at Bath Road to the South of Worcester city centre, but rather than being located directly onto the street, the K2 townhouses are set back from The Tything in a secluded and gated setting.
Linda Androlia, Head of Residential Sales for Neil Grinnall Homes commented: " Worcester is becoming one of the most popular residential locations in the Midlands . Driven by its exceptional infrastructure, cultural attractions, designer shops and upmarket restaurants, more and more people want to live here even if they work outside of the area.
"The K2 townhouses are being sold as freehold properties, which puts them in a different market to apartments. Even though they may share the same city centre location as Neil Grinnall's K1 loft apartments, the nine new substantial three bedroomed homes will only incur minimal service charge obligations and management restrictions, therefore owning a domestic pet is unlikely to prove a problem. Living here could therefore be the perfect solution for anyone looking to downsize to a manageable property."
Within easy walking distance of the scheme, Worcester Foregate Street station has direct services to Birmingham New Street with a journey time of under an hour as well as to London 's Paddington Street station, which takes just over two hours. Worcester 's enviable location, within easy reach of Birmingham and its International Airport as well as Cheltenham and the South East makes it increasingly popular as an area for relocation.
For those eager to get a taste of what the townhouses will entail, the Neil Grinnall Group has opened an on-site marketing suite with a full mock-up of the luxurious bathroom and kitchen designs. Potential purchasers can also view samples of the specification choices along with the floorplans and working drawings of each townhouse.
Prices for the townhouses start from £339,000 for a 1,414 sq ft design to £350,000 for a larger design totalling 1,474 sq ft. Special packages are available for owner-occupiers willing to purchase off-plan. For further information, please contact the K1 and K2 marketing suite, open seven days a week between 10am - 5pm, situated on The Tything in Worcester 's commercial district.
