Tenure: Leasehold

A rare opportunity to acquire a spacious 3 bedroom ground floor apartment in the prestigious private gated Petersham Place development on the renowned Calthorpe Estate. Situated off Richmond Hill Road, this exclusive private and secure complex is set in beautiful manicured communal grounds and is approached via electric double gates with a driveway leading through to the parking area and garage blocks.

The apartment is located in the front end block which is accessed via intercom security doors that open to a communal hallway with lift access and a sweeping stairwell. Located on the ground floor the apartment entrance door opens on to a wide and spacious entrance vestibule which provides access to just over 1707sq ft of living space.

There is a large bright and airy lounge with double doors to rear terrace decking area overlooking the beautiful communal gardens. It's so private, it feels like your own garden; one that you do not have to maintain!

There is a formal dining room and a good size breakfast kitchen which also has access to the terrace. The property also boasts a large family bathroom and 3 very spacious bedrooms, all doubles, with the master and second bedrooms benefitting from an en-suite bathroom and shower room respectively. The third bedroom can used as a second sitting room or office/study.

There is a double garage with an electric door that comes with the apartment.

There is a short lease of 55 years on the property.


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.
