An agricultural area in Warwickshire until the middle 19th Century, Sparkhill was developed primarily as working class housing for an ever expanding industrial Birmingham from the 1860s onwards, finally being absorbed into the city in 1911.
Today much of these Victorian terraced houses remain in this inner city area, occupied by a culturally diverse population living close to extended family.
The area contains part of Birmingham's famous 'Balti Triangle' which contains a range of restaurants enjoyed by locals and visitors to the city alike.
The main road through the area Stratford Road (A34) has local shops and good public transport links to the City Centre and Solihull.
A small area bordering Moseley (Mackenzie Road and Woodlands Road) contains traditional larger detached and semi-detached houses in contrast to the terraced properties that dominate the area overall. These two roads offer accommodation to meet the needs of larger families with prices more closely associated with Moseley. Showell Green Lane also offers a proportion of larger traditional homes towards the Moseley end.
Being on Moseley’s eastern border, we have an excellent knowledge of the area and know the needs of local buyers well.
