Birmingham unusual property: See inside 6 bedroom villa in leafy Edgbaston

This 6 bedroom villa is unusual compared to Edgabaston’s usual mansions

This unusual Grade II stucco villa located in Wellington Road, Edgbaston is on the market for £2.5million. The property boasts a peaceful residential location and easy access to Birmingham City Centre.

The listing for this unusual property on Zoopla reads: “Highland Lodge is set some 200m off Wellington Road down a private road which leads to just ten dwellings, all set in a peaceful residential location in the heart of leafy Edgbaston. Birmingham City Centre lies some two miles to the north via the nearby A38 Bristol Road.

“Edgbaston Priory Club with its gym, pool, tennis and squash courts is less than half a mile away as is Edgbaston Golf Club. An excellent choice of private schools including Hallfield, West House, Priory, King Edwards and King Edwards High School for Girls are all nearby making the location an ideal choice for young families.

“Highland Lodge is thought to have been built in around 1830 and displays handsome architecture and many classic Georgian period features throughout. Of particular note are the two storey shallow bows to either side of the entrance on the front elevation which give the house symmetry and grandeur. The property has been Grade II Listed for its architectural and historical importance and it is featured in the renowned Pevsner architectural guide for Birmingham.

“The property offers beautifully proportioned accommodation set principally over two storeys (plus cellar) and extends in all to an impressive 4,800 sq ft (446 sq m) including outbuildings. The ground floor living space is set around an inviting central reception hall with guest cloakroom WC to the rear, and access to the cellars.

“There are three fine reception rooms, each with superb proportions and features including large windows, cornicing and exquisite original fireplaces. The drawing room is a magnificent dual aspect room with three full height sash windows within a shallow bow to the south elevation and full height glazed double doors to the west elevation.

“The dining room has excellent proportions and enjoys a westerly aspect over the grounds via two sets of full height glazed double doors which open out onto the terrace. The third reception room is presently a study but has similar grand proportions to the main drawing room. It too has three full height sash windows set within a shallow bow to the front, as well as a further sash window overlooking the courtyard to the side.”
