Living in Birmingham
As ‘the second city of the United Kingdom’, Birmingham has always been an appealing location for homebuyers. Our developments of new homes in Birmingham are situated both in and around this popular city location, so you can choose between urban and suburban living.
Although it has a proud industrial heritage, Birmingham has now firmly established a reputation as a cultural hotspot. With top attractions such as Cadbury World and performances by the Royal Shakespeare Company in Birmingham’s many theatres, there’s something here to suit every taste. In fact, there’s so much to see and do for residents that the city was recently voted as one of the top 50 cities in the world to live in.
Within the city centre, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to shopping and dining locations. Throughout Birmingham, you’ll find world-leading shopping arcades packed with designer boutiques, familiar high-street brands and everything from budget eateries to Michelin-starred restaurants.
On top of this, Birmingham is a great place for all of the family. This is because not only is the city home to some of the country’s best private and state schools, but it also has five different universities.
In addition, it’s a popular commuting location. Birmingham’s New Street station is on a direct train line to London in the south and Newcastle in the north, while the city is also skirted by the M1 and the M6, which provide easy access to the rest of the UK’s motorway network. Plus, when you fancy jetting away on holiday, Birmingham even has its own international airport.
The Surrounding Countryside
Birmingham may be a bright and bustling city, but it’s also surrounded by natural beauty, rolling countryside and some of Britain’s most fabulous scenery.
For example, the Malvern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is only 40 miles south of the city. This is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts, as it’s packed with adrenaline-pumping climbs, gentle walking routes and colourful wildflower meadows. If you don’t fancy travelling this far, then the Cannock Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is only 20 miles to the north. Known as ‘the jewel of the West Midlands’, here you’ll find a great range of elevated heaths, forests and historic parklands that present an unspoilt wilderness.
All of this means that, when you move to one of our new homes in Birmingham, you receive the perfect blend. You’ll have a vibrant and cosmopolitan city on your doorstep and some of the country’s best beauty spots only a short drive away.
