Birmingham’s most expensive street revealed – why people love to live among millionaires

Tucked away on the Edgbaston / Harborne border and with homes valued on average at £ 1.88million, Woodbourne Road is proving to be Birmingham’s most expensive street.

The search by Zoopla property listing website places Woodbourne Road on the B15, a leafy road within the exclusive Calthorpe Estate, in front of any other street in town when it comes to home values.

Only about half a mile long – from Augustus Road and Westfield Road at one end to Meadow Road at the other – it is a boulevard with tall, secluded Victorian and Edwardian houses that are set back from the road, behind walls, electric doors and blanket for privacy. There are also more modern properties.

The road is also home to the Priory Hospital Woodbourne, while Harborne High Street, where you will find big names as well as independent traders and restaurants such as Sabai Sabai, Damascena and The Plow, is around a mile and a half.

Over the past 12 months, homes on Woodbourne Road have increased in value by more than £ 35,500, according to Zoopla.

Andy Thomas, director of the Hunters Harborne real estate agency, said he’s not surprised Woodbourne Road has come out on top when it comes to the city’s most expensive properties.

“These are very large plots, just on the corner of Harborne and Edgbaston, so the location is good in terms of downtown, which is only three and a half kilometers, Queen Elizabeth Hospital and the ‘University of Birmingham,’ he said. .

“The houses are really nice and big and they are single detached houses with big facades and big gardens, and it is very green.

“Many are Victorian and Edwardian, but some have been reconstructed and there are modern ones from the 1970s and 1980s. I don’t think many have been on sale in a while.

While owners might be happy to stay in Woodbourne Road, Andy said Harborne continues to be a popular suburb for property buyers, thanks to its convenient location and good public and private schools.

The next four most expensive streets with Birmingham postcodes are all within a few miles of Woodbourne Road – and are all on the B15.
