Show Home Unveiled At Former Birmingham Infirmary

Posted 7 September 2021 by Keith Osborne

A show apartment has been opened at Charles Church's landmark Ellis Court development...

The first show home was unveiled by housebuilder Charles Church at a contemporary redevelopment of the striking red brick Selly Oak hospital building.

Ellis Court is just a short walk from Selly Oak High Street, is an exclusive collection of modern apartments in an attractive garden setting. It offers 44 well-equipped one- and two-bathroom apartments. They feature contemporary, open-plan living spaces together with a spacious bedroom with en suite, bathroom, study and storage facilities.

Originally a Victorian workhouse, the handsome building at the heart of Ellis Court subsequently became Selly Oak Infirmary, a forerunner to the world-leading Queen Elizabeth Hospital in nearby Edgbaston. The development is named after Dr Frederick William Ellis, chief medical officer at the hospital over a century ago, who was lauded for his care and rehabilitation of the city’s sick and elderly citizens.

Ellis CourtTwo newly constructed wings lead out from the main central block and in the West Wing is the fully furnished show home.

Charles Church Central sales director Sarah Preston said: “We are so proud to be working with such an interesting and historic building, breathing new life into its walls and adapting it to its new important role – creating a safe, high-quality and welcoming place to live.”

The grounds are reminiscent of London’s private communal gardens, while detailed thought has gone into the layout and design of the development to ensure it meets the exacting standards of young professionals looking to call it their home.

Preston added: “The proximity of Ellis Court to the QE Hospital and the university, as well as the high-spec of our fixtures and fittings, gives us a real point of difference over other accommodation and is already attracting some discerning customers.”

Just a 15-minute drive to Birmingham City Centre, Ellis Court has excellent transport links via the M5, A38, A441 and Selly Oak train station. Prices start at £178,000. Find out more about Ellis Court from Charles Church.
