Estate Agents Northfield - Weoley Castle
The History of Weoley Castle
Weoley Castle forms part of Northfield and is a residential area south-west of Birmingham city centre. They are in fact under 7 miles apart, with the A38 connecting the two. Head south along the A38 and you’ll reach Bromsgrove in similar time. The suburb of Weoley Castle is bordered by Selly Oak to the east, Harborne to the north, Bartley Green to the west, and Weoley Hill and Shenley Fields to the south.
The suburb dates from the 1930s and takes its name from a moated manor house, which is Grade 2 listed. This dates back to the 13th century and is a popular local attraction. It is one of the oldest buildings in Birmingham and is classed as a scheduled Ancient Monument of national importance.
Social housing dominates the area and in 1935, the then Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain attended the unveiling of a landmark figure of 10,000 homes in Birmingham.

Ex-local authority houses range from £150,000 up to £200,000 whilst larger semi-detached homes sit around £225,000.

In terms of rental yield, several three bedroomed ex-local authority homes are available at around £700 to £900 per calendar month.
