Selly Oak collection offers contemporary living steeped in history

Supreme residential city living with unique heritage.

Just a short walk from the buzz of Selly Oak High Street, with its independent cafes and chic University-Quarter vibe, Ellis Court is an exclusive collection of beautifully-equipped modern apartments situated in a glorious residential setting.

Just three miles south of Birmingham city centre, these stunning one-bedroom apartments feature contemporary, open-plan living spaces together with spacious bedroom, bathroom and storage facilities. Low maintenance, stylish and luxurious, they offer a most enviable quality of life.

The development is a jewel in the crown of award-winning housebuilder Charles Church, with the beautiful red brick building spanning more than 100 years of rich history.

Originally a Victorian workhouse, the handsomely striking 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 main central block of that renowned hospital now forms the core of Ellis Court, 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.

Young, vibrant and busy, Selly Oak is a delightful city location for individuals and couples seeking a neighbourhood packed with shops, supermarkets, cafes, bars and restaurants. The delightful Selly Oak Park is a short walk away and as the holder of the prestigious Green Flag Award, ranks among the UK’s best open spaces.

As well as being surrounded by this abundance of old-world charm and natural beauty, Ellis Court is just a short drive or train ride from Birmingham city centre alive with leisure activities, world-class shopping, sports centres, theatres, swimming baths, restaurants, cinemas and museums.

Commenting on the development, Charles Church sales director Sarah Preston said: “It is rare to find affordable new homes which combine the distinction and sheer quality of Ellis Court with the incredible history of this remarkable site. Understandably, there has been very keen interest in these properties, which we are proud to bring to the market.”

Shortly before Charles Church acquired the site that is now Ellis Court, there was a Service of Thanks held at Selly Oak Hospital, celebrating a century of caring and to share memories of the facility.

Today the property is a supreme fusion of heritage and modern living. A safe, stylish and welcoming haven to call home.

Prices at Ellis Court start at £185,000 for an immaculate range of one-bedroom apartments. To speak to an on-site sales executive or arrange a viewing, call 0121 803 8429 or visit
