Homes sold for nearly £3 million from sale of Victorian conversion in Edgbaston

Seven luxury homes developed from what was originally a Victorian property in a much sought-after Birmingham estate have been sold for nearly £3 million in total, thanks to Davidson Estates.

The leading estate agency has fully completed on the deals for the two one-bedroomed and four two-bedroomed apartments, along with one two-bedroom townhouse in Ferndale House, on the Calthorpe Estate in Edgbaston.

Ben Davidson, director of Edgbaston-based Davidson Estates, which has a branch office in the city centre, said: “The Ferndale House development was a luxurious Victorian conversion comprising of seven high specification units which saw the perfect combination of traditional and modern design and materials.

“This was a great opportunity for buyers wanting to live or invest in such a highly sought-after area which is within walking distance of Edgbaston Village’s leisure and lifestyle amenities, a range of ‘outstanding’ nurseries and schools, while being close to the city and the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

“The apartments and town house sympathetically reflected the historic architecture of the period and this proved really popular with the growing market for professionals wishing to live in premier homes that are close to award-winning places to eat, drink and relax, and within easy access to Birmingham and the transport network.

“The property’s attractiveness was enhanced by the leafy setting within extensive and mature communal garden on the Calthorpe Estate, surrounded by other character period buildings.”

Mr Davidson added: “We were confident that this project would be a success and are delighted that all sales went through quickly and smoothly for our clients.”

Ferndale House was a joint project between Calthorpe Estates and Tag Urban Properties, a company experienced at renovating historical buildings.

Simon Tate, director at Tag Urban Properties, said: “Ferndale House offered the perfect opportunity for us to work alongside Calthorpe Estates and transform a stunning period property into seven luxury apartments in a beautiful, landscaped setting close to Edgbaston Village.’’

“We were thrilled at how Davidson Estates projected these properties onto the marketplace which resulted in such high calibre sales.”

Tim Abbotts, a director at Calthorpe Estates, said: “Ferndale House is another step in Calthorpe Estates’ ambitious vision to create thriving communities in Edgbaston, with a choice of homes and attractive amenities where people wish to live, work and relax. We are very pleased with the property conversion and the successful sale of these apartments by Davidson Estates.”
