Orchard Manor is located on a private plot, nestled in the corner of The Orchards situated off Ladywood Road one of the most desirable roads on the Four Oaks Estate.

The Four Oaks Estate is an exclusive residential area lying along the northern and eastern borders of Sutton Park. Originally the site of Four Oaks Hall, the house and its surrounding land were sold in 1868 to Hubert de Burgh-Canning, 2nd Marquess of Clanricarde for residential development. Four Oaks Hall was demolished in 1898. Covenants have ensured the Four Oaks Estate has been preserved as a most attractive and highly desirable place to live with tree-lined private roads; their names derived from its historical past.

The town of Sutton Coldfield provides an excellent choice of shops, restaurants and schooling including Bishop Vesey's Grammar School, Sutton Coldfield Grammar School for Girls and Highclare School. Nearby Mere Green provides a good selection of bars, restaurants and everyday shops including Waitrose, M&S and Sainsbury's supermarkets.

Sutton Park is a short walk away and is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest and offers great scope for walking, golf and a variety of outdoor pursuits.

One of the many advantages of the area is its location for fast communications to the M42, M6, M6 Toll and Birmingham International/nec.
