Northfield branch

51 Church Road Birmingham B31 2LB

Robert Oulsnam and Company has been operating in Northfield for over two decades now. We are one of the main estate and lettings agents in the area, with our Northfield office handling properties within the suburb and the adjoining areas of West Heath, Longbridge, Frankley, Weoley Castle, and King’s Norton. The office stands on Church Street, the main commercial street in Northfield, and close to the Northfield Shopping Centre, many restaurants, and the local library. The premises were once the home of Matthew and Sons, another estate agent – at Oulsnam we still use the services of a member of the Matthews family as a surveyor. The branch manager, Alison Nock, possesses extensive local knowledge and has been with the company since 1987.

Robert Oulsnam & Company estate agents and letting agents in Northfield have been selling homes in Northfield for over 20 years. As well as being the longest established agent, we are undoubtedly the largest and most successful agent in Northfield.

Our office occupies a very prominent and easily accessible position in Church Road about 100 yards from the Bristol Road South and the main shopping centre in Northfield.

These premises were in fact first established as Estate Agent and Letting Agents offices about 50 years ago by Matthew and Sons and a member of that family is now a consultant surveyor for Robert Oulsnam and Company.

Our office offers a wide variety of properties for sale and to let ranging from flats and terraced houses to semi-detached houses large and small to superior detached family homes.

As well as Northfield We offer houses and flats for sale and to rent in West Heath, Longbridge, Cotteridge, Stirchley, Selly Oak, Selly Park and Weoley Castle. We are particularly well known for the properties we offer in the prime residential areas of Bournville and Kings Norton.

Call in and see us today and meet our friendly and professional staff.

Thank you very much for all your hard work and keeping us up to date with the sale of our property - Mr & Mrs A

We just wanted to thank you for all your hard work on selling our house and going that ‘extra mile’ for us a number of times throughout the process. As you can imagine it’s a very difficult and stressful process to sell a house when you’re not in the country and we realise it also makes it that much more difficult for yourselves as well. So thank you so very much for being so great! - Mr & Mrs G

Excellent throughout our sale and will use you again. - Mr & Mrs M

Gary was brilliant, kept us in the loop all the time.  - Mr & Mrs L

Following on from the sale of my property, I would like to thank you and your staff for the help and support provided in bringing the sale to a successful conclusion.  In particular would you please thank both Alison and Natalie who have been extremely helpful during some challenging times. - Mr O

From the initial meeting with Ian Williams, we felt that Oulsnam would sell the property at a good price.  The brochure was excellent, all calls and questions were answered promptly.  Thanks, would recommend. - Ms G

Northfield area guide

Northfield is an appealing suburb of Birmingham to the south-west of the city centre that emerged in the early 20th century following the growth of the Austin Motor Works in the neighbouring suburb of Longbridge. The Pershore and Bristol roads run through the area and take car drivers all the way to the city centre or in the opposite direction to the nearby Junction 2 of the M42. The area today contains branches of many leading retailers and hosts a popular farmers’ market each month. For commuters working in the city centre of Birmingham, Northfield station provides connections to New Street in 20 minutes.

Today Northfield is an outer suburb of Birmingham, but its origin was in a Saxon settlement in North Worcestershire, which in 1086 became part of the lands of William Fitz-Ansculf, a Norman knight.

In 1879 the Cadbury brothers moved their business to Bournville just two miles from Northfield and established a garden village between Bournville and Northfield to house their workers. This village was well planned with wide tree-lined roads, parks, and a variety of other amenities.

Herbert Austin founded his Austin Works in Longbridge in 1905. These industrialists were influential and active in the area and many buildings, parks and other amenities are the result of their generosity.

Northfield is centred around the A38, a tree lined dual carriageway leading from Birmingham centre to Bromsgrove Worcester and beyond. A new bypass has been built around the centre with its excellent shopping facilities, and other facilities including schools and colleges. The very well thought of areas of Bournville and Kings Norton lie close by offering a fine selection of individual homes.

Northfield changed rapidly during the 20th century, large areas of housing were built in the 1930s, and housing estates were developed at Ley Hill, West Heath, Bunbury Road and Vineyard Road in the 1960s. The Northfield of today is a very busy place, but the area around the church has been a conservation area for over twenty years and reminds us of earlier times.
