Situation Edgbaston is an exclusive suburb of Birmingham, rich in history and part of one of England's largest conservation areas. Much of Edgbaston comes under the renowned Calthorpe Estate, which is committed to preserving the quality and original character of the area and the properties within it, thus making it a most attractive area in which to live. Greening Drive itself is made up of similar detached properties, some of which have been extended. It is an exclusive address and is a cul de sac accessed via one of the area's most elegant roads with fine period properties interspersed with modern town-houses. It is ideally located for access to Birmingham City Centre which lies about a mile away and it is also close to the Business District at Five Ways where there is a railway station which connects with the national rail network at New Street. There is also a good public transport system along Wheeleys Road which is a five minute walk from the house. 

Shopping The property is well-placed for the excellent amenities of Harborne Village. In addition to M&S Food Hall and Waitrose supermarket, there are a range of convenience shops, brasseries, and even its own Michelin starred restaurant. The Plough on the High Street features frequently in the Sunday Times and Telegraph as being a very popular eaterie. More locally there is a small square of shops in Templefield Square which includes a hairdresser, Co-op Supermarket, dry cleaners and a bridal shop. Furthermore a part of the Calthorpe Estate, near St George's Chrch, now known as "The Village" has seen the development of a centre for fine and casual dining. It now includes the Michelin starred Simpsons Restaurant, the Highfield Bistro, The Edgbaston Cocktail Lounge and Njorske Bistro which means it is becoming a popular alternative venue to the city centre and Harborne Village for those who enjoy the "high life". This is also within walking distance.

Birmingham City Centre is now able to boast some of the best shopping in Europe, with its new Grand Central which sits above New Street Station, The Bullring having over 140 stores including a Selfridges store and the Mailbox Development at Royal Arch which has designer outlets that include Armani and Harvey Nicholls. 

Leisure/Recreation Broad Street and Brindleyplace have been developed and improved to provide superior business and recreational activities. Within a mile stretch can be found the ICC with its superb Symphony Hall, The NIA, several good hotels, the new Central Library and Birmingham Repertory Theatre. The Hippodrome is about a mile away in Chinatown which is now the home of the Birmingham Royal Ballet.

The Edgbaston Tennis and Squash Club at the Priory and Edgbaston Golf Club are both around the corner, The Warwickshire County Cricket Ground is close by as are the Botanical Gardens and the Barber Institute of Art at the University.

There are excellent medical and educational facilities in the immediate vicinity, which include Hallfield and West House Preparatory Schools, The King Edward Foundation Schools, Edgbaston High School, the Priory, St George's and Blue Coat Schools.
