THE Warrington Guardian has been given a sneak peek inside the town’s newest apartment block development.

A disused former office building on Scotland Road has been converted into 32 loft-style flats in a £5m scheme.

Built by Emerald Bay Construction and situated above retail units including the East Orient Buffet Restaurant, Kings Court is comprised of a mix of one and two-bedroom flats.

Check out the view from the top floor penthouse in the video below.

The first tenants moved into their rented properties in December, with residents including 'cosmopolitan professionals from across the world' from countries including South Africa, Austria and Greece.

Half of the properties in the building have been let since they were released at the end of last year.

And further apartments - including two exclusive penthouses - will be released to the rental market this week.

Steve Park, managing director of Warrington & Co, said: “Warrington town centre is undergoing a residential renaissance.

“We’re delighted to hear that Kings Court apartments have been let so quickly.

“It not only reflects the quality of the build but that there is a real fervour and energy for high quality urban living in Warrington.”

Fitted out by London-based interior design agency Gunter & Co, the flats feature 'state-of-the-art' kitchens and bathrooms as well as high-speed Wi-Fi.

Apartments are available either furnished or unfurnished and are priced at between £500 and £950 per month.

Adam Jude, business director at letting agents James Peacock Properties, added: “We have been thrilled with the response to the Kings Court apartments and are excited to be releasing the next phase on Thursday, March 15 - which includes our two duplex penthouses.”
