Lovell Homes’ Station House development in Stourbridge has almost sold due to high demand, with its final apartment remaining.
The former Stourbridge police station was recently renovated into 31 one-of-a-kind one and two-bedroom apartments, including unique mezzanine and penthouse apartments. With just the final mezzanine apartment available released at £275,000, homeowners are being encouraged to act quickly.
Situated on New Road, the site has stood for more than a century and was the police base for decades in the town. Part of the building dates back to 1885, when it was built as the County Police Station, replacing an earlier court and jail.
The main police station, now known as Constable House, was built in 1911 as the headquarters of the Worcestershire County Constabulary and the Magistrates Court, including on-site police cells, highlighting the historic and important role of Stourbridge at that time.
Victoria House was formerly an accommodation block for officers, which featured a bar, lounge and pool room where they could unwind. Wendy House, the newest building on the site, formerly housed office accommodation. Both of these buildings are believed to date from the 1930s.
Stourbridge’s police station closed its doors in 2017 and was purchased by Lovell in 2018 and construction work commenced in 2019. The sales launch took place early last year and the first residents moved to their brand-new apartment in November 2020.
Trish Foster, regional sales director at Lovell, said: “We’re thrilled at how successful Station House has been since its launch. Despite the backdrop of the current pandemic, the homes at Station House have proven exceptionally popular, with almost 40% of the development selling out during the first lockdown alone.
“It’s been wonderful to bring a new lease of life to this historic building and restore its stunning police station features. We hope the new residents enjoy their lives within this remarkable development and feel proud to call it home.”
The development’s stylish homes have been built with many of the original police station features from the 1900s remaining, including the striking external blue doors and stunning ceiling of the old courtroom, in keeping with the main, historic character of Stourbridge’s town centre. Former police cells have even been converted into apartments, creating one-of-a-kind properties that offer the very best in modern and flexible living.
Perfectly situated in the heart of Stourbridge, the development in surrounded by amenities including supermarkets and Merry Hill shopping centre, home to major high street shops, restaurants and more.
Stourbridge is in good proximity to Birmingham, Dudley and Wolverhampton, with excellent transport links and a nearby train station making Station House ideal for commuters.
