The Best New Homes In Edgbaston

Posted 1 March 2023 by Keith Osborne

We take a look at some of the best current new homes developments in and around Edgbaston...

Edgbaston is one of the most affluent suburbs of Birmingham, just a couple of miles south of the city centre, which avoided many of the changes created by the Industrial Revolution seen in other districts and preserving it as very much a residential area.

The period homes set in conservation areas here command big prices, making it one of the most expensive places to live outside London. But there are new homes developments in some parts of Edgbaston, many of which involve restoring attractive heritage buildings, often into a range of apartments that combine character with the latest specification standards.

The area is arguably best known for its cricket ground, a frequent host of international matches, but it also has first-class tennis facilities and an exclusive golf club. Edgbaston is also the place to find some of Birmingham’s best restaurants and bars. Leisure time can also be spent at a number of historic buildings, formal gardens, a wildlife conservation park and arts venues. Families will appreciate the range of highly rated state and independent schools here.


Spitfire Homes still has a few high-specification homes left for sale at its exclusive Beaufort development on sought-after Norfolk Road. There are two new build detached four-bedroom houses, as well as a restored and converted Italianate-style villa of apartments and a three-bedroom/three-bathroom penthouse with separate study and a private roof terraces in a restored and Italianate-style villa. Prices currently range from £875,000 to £1.35million. Find out more about current Spitfire Homes developments.

Audley Villages has won many prestigious WhatHouse? Awards for its luxury retirement developments and it has seen great success at St George’s Place on Church Road. This high-end scheme comprises two Grade II listed Regency villas, a restored Victorian building and new buildings creating a community of 95 luxury cottages and apartments. Residents can use exceptional facilities including indoor pool, health club, restaurant, lounge, library and shared gardens. Around 90% sold now, prices for the remaining new homes start at £249,950 for a first-floor one-bedroom apartment.


Up-and-coming Stirchley is a village just south of Edgbaston which is getting well-known for its range of bars, eateries and craft breweries. There’s also King Edward VI Camp Hill School for Boys, a grammar school rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted. It’s a short walk to Bournville railway station for services to central Birmingham.

West Side Mews is a Taylor Wimpey development bringing 87 two-, three- and four-bedroom homes to the area. Positioned opposite the tranquil Hazelwell Park, all the village’s shops and amenities are a stone’s throw from the front door. Over 90% of the homes here are already sold but available properties start at £375,000. There are two show homes to visit on site.
