Suburban comfort, urban convenience – the joy of life in Sheldon

Sheldon Hero

Birmingham is one of the most exciting cities in the UK. Filled with beautiful waterways, home to a thriving cultural scene and offering all the bars and restaurants you could ever need, it’s no surprise that so many people choose to move here.

But why live in the busy city centre with all its stresses? What if you could get all the benefits of city centre life while living in a countryside, suburban setting?

If that sounds like your sort of thing – welcome to Sheldon.

Where is Sheldon?

Located to the east of the city centre, Sheldon is a popular suburb of Birmingham that is minutes away from Solihull and a convenient journey from the Airport and the upcoming HS2 Interchange Station.

This popular area is something of an oasis in the busy, urbanised Birmingham area, and has a strong community feel that can be missing in modern city centres.

Suburban comfort

Park Gate overlooks the 300-acre Sheldon Country Park, a stunning green space that is tailor-made for to provide a relaxing, tranquil environment. Made up of grasslands, wetlands, hedgerows and woodland, having this on your doorstep makes Park Gate an unmissable home.

What’s more, the building itself includes a large roof terrace and workout area which feels a million miles away from the stress of city life. What could be better after a long day at work than a picturesque escape like that?

Urban convenience

However, just because Park Gate offers the best comforts of suburban life, that doesn’t mean you’ll be stuck miles away from the action. The building has unrivalled transport links and lies minutes from Birmingham city centre by road or bus – and in fact there is a new Sprint Bus service on the way which will stop directly outside your new home.

For people who prefer the train, Marston Green Station is just round the corner and gives you direct, fast access to Birmingham New Street. Furthermore, the new HS2 Interchange Station is being built at Birmingham Airport which can be found 10 minutes away by car or bus. And, of course, the Airport itself gives you access to the rest of the world; it is the UK’s third biggest and flies to destinations across the globe, from California to China and everywhere in between.

All of this means that everything you would have if you lived in the city centre is right on your doorstep. You can have all the bars, shops, restaurants and culture that Birmingham is famous for – but without any of the downsides of city life.
