One of Birmingham’s most noted historic buildings, Rookery House is soon to become home to 15 unique apartments, overlooking Rookery Park.
Originally built in the 1730’s, this beautiful period house was home to William Wilberforce a well-known anti-slavery campaigner and turn to Richard Spooner, Birmingham’s first Tory Member of Parliament.
The grade II listed building will also include a cafe and community space along with an Italian sunken garden.

On the outskirts of Birmingham, just three miles from Royal Sutton Coldfield and the beautiful Staffordshire countryside, lies Erdington, a wonderfully-connected location dating back to Anglo Saxon times. With a distinctive retail centre and Grade II-listed Edwardian redbrick library, it maintains a real sense of identity while providing easy access to all the Second City has to offer.
For retail fans, Birmingham’s Bullring and Grand Central are home to Selfridges and John Lewis, along with a host of flagship high street stores, while The Mailbox offers a range of designer and high-end goods in its boutiques and Harvey Nicholls store. The city’s foodie scene has come on a pace over recent years, offering everything from Michelin-starred restaurants to artisan cafes and high street chains. Nearly every kind of world cuisine is catered for including, of course, the famous ‘balti’ curry, developed in the city.
Arts fans can make the most of world-class music, theatre and dance performances - including the CBSO and Birmingham Royal Ballet - while the nearby Star City development offers family fun in the guise of ice-skating, bowling, mini golf and a 25-screen cinema.
Two professional football clubs, a Test cricket ground, international athletics stadium and Olympic-sized swimming pool mean there is plenty to keep sports fans entertained and, with the Commonwealth Games due to arrive in the city in 2022, there’s sure to be more to come.
The Birches is set to become a welcome addition to the local community, offering much-needed 3 and 4-bedroom houses, perfect for commuters. With a choice of good State, Grammar and Independent schools, it is an increasingly popular location for growing families while its easy access to an enviable range of employment and leisure opportunities make it an attractive option for young professionals too.
