FABULOUS CHARACTER HOME MUST BE SEEN! Originally built and owned for the Bissell family, this superb traditional family home comes complete with a host of original period features.

Location

Quinton lies in the western suburbs of Birmingham Metropolitan Borough adjacent the suburbs of Harborne and Bartley Green and is separated from Halesowen and the rest of the Black Country by the M5 motorway. Once a small village on the outskirts of Halesowen parish it was eventually incorporated into Birmingham Borough Council in 1909.

During the1930 s Quinton underwent extensive development and the area today is predominately traditional bay front semi-detached and detached houses alongside Local Authority housing built around the same time, the majority of which has been purchased by private owners over the years. It luckily escaped factory development following objections by the residents of Edgbaston.

The stunning Art Deco cinema on Hagley Road provides it most well known landmarks. Originally opened as the Danilo it has an interesting history. During WW2 it housed an anti-aircraft battery and was a base for the Home Guard. It has been a venue for live music playing host to the likes of Billy Fury and Marty Wilde today is owned by Reel and continues as a traditional Cinema.

The proximity to the M5 motorway provides easy access to the greater West Midlands motorway network. It is also well served by local buses to both Birmingham and Halesowen. Birmingham City centre is a mere 15 to 20 min drive. Woodgate Valley Country Park to the south of Quinton is a 450 acre area of countryside and nature reserve through which the Bournbrook flows. Apart from ample walks the park also has an urban farm, pony trekking and a play park. Just outside of Quinton is Bartley Reservoir home to Bartley Sailing Club. The parade of shops along The Hagley Road provides an extensive selection of local shops including hairdressers, pharmacy, convenience stores, take-aways, restaurants and banks. There are two supermarkets with a Tesco on Ridgacre Road and an Asda on Hagley Road West.

The traditional houses of Quinton are highly sought after with popular roads such as White Road and Ridgacre Road West a firm favourite with families. The 1970 s Chichester Drive Estate is also popular for buyers looking for more affordable houses for sale in Quinton.
