Barnt Green is a village in Bromsgrove district located just North East of Bromsgrove town itself. Nestled amongst the Lickey Hills country park and the Bittell Reservoirs, Barnt Green enjoys all of the benefits of a rural location whilst remaining only 10 minutes from Birmingham. The village has a history that dates to 1880, and has a charming traditional high street with all the local shops you would expect, including a butcher, bakeries, opticians, a local park, and a Tesco branch.
The village has a mix of properties, including a range of 2-3 bedroomed properties located close to the town centre, ideal for families, whilst larger, more affluent properties are located towards the outskirts of the village. First time buyers may have more luck in the Cofton Hackett or Blackwell areas, or if being in Barnt Green is a priority, there are many 1 or 2 bedroomed flats available.
Property prices in Barnt Green have always remained relatively reliable, remaining stable throughout the recession, and rising since 2014. We expect this to continue with prices rising even further. As Barnt Green is surrounded by green-belt land, properties are not often built in the area, meaning demand is constantly increasing, especially for the more affluent properties in the area.
Barnt Green benefits from having excellent transport links to nearby locations, including train access to Birmingham city centre in just 20 minutes, bus routes to nearby towns, and easy access to both the M5 and M42 motorways. These transport links give residents of Barnt Green excellent employment opportunities in nearby towns such as Bromsgrove, Redditch, and Birmingham.
Schools in and around Barnt Green are rated outstanding or good, including St Andrews Primary School within the village.
