Calthorpe Estates is one of the UK’s most forward-thinking and progressive property investment and development companies. Family-owned since 1717, the prime focus of the business is the 610-hectare Calthorpe Estate in Edgbaston. The Estate is a dynamic, bustling area for commercial and residential activity. Calthorpe Estates is also responsible for delivering a multi-million-pound regeneration portfolio in Edgbaston, Birmingham. This includes retail and leisure, office spaces and medical developments within their commercial portfolio. All of the regeneration is set to enhance the appeal of one of the country’s most desirable locations in which to live and work.
