Although beauty is in the eye of the beholder, living in a traditionally green neighbourhood that is well-looked after, clean and full of character certainly adds value. In fact, the Office of National Statistics found that green and blue spaces (meaning areas that contain water and aquatic-based features) can increase the value of surrounding properties by up to 3.5%. This is likely because spaces that contribute to natural beauty create a superior quality of life when compared to concrete jungles, and can even help residents lead more fulfilling lives. For landlords, this means greater tenant retention, longer tenancies and fewer void periods.
In this piece, we’ll be considering the green spaces, historical features and community initiatives in Solihull’s key neighbourhoods in our quest to reveal the most quintessentially beautiful neighbourhoods in the region. But why live in Solihull?
Solihull is set to welcome the upcoming HS2 Interchange Station, which adds yet another string to its bow of exceptional transport options for locals, after already being home to Birmingham International Airport. As such, opportunities for growth and investment are flooding into Solihull – jobs at the new HS2 Interchange, the extensive town centre masterplan and integrated Solihull transport hub are sure to bring new tenants and residents into the region. Although Solihull’s future looks bright, we needn’t forget all the existing facilities that already make it a fantastic home to so many. Schools such as Tudor Grange Academy, Solihull School and Arden School are all exceptionally high performing; Touchwood Shopping Centre provides everything locals could possibly need; and the range of restaurants, cafes and eateries rivals even Birmingham. Ultimately, if you’re searching for a fantastic place to live, work and play… live in Solihull!
