Housebuilder to transform former Edgbaston care home site into 43 high-end homes
A former residential care home site, located at 6 Norfolk Road on the Calthorpe Estate in Edgbaston, is set to be transformed by Spitfire Bespoke Homes into 43 high-quality homes.
Solihull/Midlands-based Spitfire will deliver a range of dwellings on the 3.1-acre site of the former Weston House care home, after acquiring the land from Calthorpe Estates – situated just 2.5 miles from Birmingham city centre.
The housebuilder will create sought-after homes for young professionals, down-sizers, couples and families, after the site within the prestigious 1,600-acre Calthorpe Estate gained unanimous planning approval from Birmingham City Council at the end of 2020.
Designed by Birmingham-based Glancy Nicholls Architects, the collection of homes will feature 26 new build apartments and nine substantial houses. The project will also see the refurbishment of Weston House itself, which dates back to the late 1800s, transformed into a series of six grand apartments, whilst the adjacent coach house will become two smaller, semi-detached properties.
This latest news comes as Spitfire gears up for major growth, ready to seize rising market demand for well-located, quality homes. Alongside Edgbaston, the housebuilder has just finalised a land acquisition at Eckington in Worcestershire, and is gearing up for further site purchases across the region in the coming months.
Ben Leather, Managing Director at Spitfire, said, “This is a distinctive project located in Edgbaston, a prestigious part of Birmingham, and is a prime example of what Spitfire stands for. We have established a reputation for creating quality homes in desirable locations and this collection offers exactly that.”
Haydn Cooper, Chief Executive of Calthorpe Estates added, “With Weston House we were looking for a developer with a reputation for delivering high-quality residential schemes – Spitfire fits that bill. We are committed to creating thriving communities and enhancing Edgbaston. Regenerating the Norfolk Road site, along with the establishment of Edgbaston Village as a vibrant leisure and lifestyle destination, plus the arrival of the Metro and SPRINT, all strengthen Edgbaston as an attractive location for people to live, work and relax.”
