Antony Rosindale of CountryLarge, said: “We can’t wait to release our black brick houses to the market.

“We love the grain of the Northern Quarter, which is already home to highly-successful schemes such as Crispin Lofts, and its sheer convenience with everything from Homesense to Harvey Nichols within ten minutes’ walk.

“The independent scene is alive and kicking in the area with well-established and successful venues such as Brewdog, Zaap Thai, Moho, Belgrave and The Reliance.’’

According to Jonathan Morgan, city centre specialist at sales agents Linley & Simpson with Morgans, demand will be high.

Mr Morgan said: “We have seen plenty of evidence of strong demand for city centre houses in recent months and we are very confident of plenty of interest when we launch the sales campaign.

“The appeal of city living is well-documented and with such a short walk to a whole host of bars, restaurants, coffee shops and theatres, not to mention the shopping arcades, the green space of Lovell Park, the Arena and the Universities.

“Cobblers Row is very well-placed and will appeal to a very wide range of buyers.”
