Location Edgbaston traditionally has a reputation for being one of the most upmarket and affluent parts of Birmingham or "where the trees begin".
In the 19th century, the area was under the control of the Gough-Calthorpe family who refused to allow factories or warehouses to be built in Edgbaston, thus making it attractive for the middle class.
The Calthorpe Estate stretches through Edgbaston and into Harborne and is home to the University of Birmingham, established as Birmingham Medical School in 1825. Careful stewardship has ensured that it retains the charm of earlier days when architects designed large houses in tree lined roads, horses were stabled in coach houses and large landscaped gardens lay alongside fields and orchards.
Today the area has adapted to contemporary life and boasts a healthy mixture of old and new – with modern houses and apartments often standing side by side with large Victorian and Georgian properties. This unique "garden suburb", only a few minutes from the Centre, is an enormous asset to the City of Birmingham, but its character could easily be lost without the interest and support of the residents.
With the new village development underway on the Calthorpe Estate, a host of new businesses, restaurants and high end retailers will open in the area bringing even more elegance and sophistication to this beautiful part of Birmingham.
The Queen Elizabeth Hospital (qe) and Harborne High Street is a 10 minute walk away.
