Wisteria House is situated on the highly sought-after Four Oaks Estate; an exclusive residential area lying along the northern and eastern borders of Sutton Park. The Four Oaks Estate is originally part of a large forestry to encompass the adjoining Sutton Park. The Estate was initially laid out in the 1890s when the Four Oaks Park was bought by the Marquis of Clanricarde. The area was then developed as an exclusive private residential Estate and covenants encumbered on the residences have ensured that the Four Oaks Estate has preserved itself as a most attractive and highly desirable place to live.
Nearby Sutton Park, which is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest, offers a great scope for walking, golf and a variety of other outdoor pursuits. Four Oaks tennis club is close by.
The town of Sutton Coldfield provides an excellent choice of shops, restaurants and schooling including Bishop Vesey's Grammar School, Sutton Coldfield Grammar School for Girls and Highclare School. In nearby Mere Green there is an M&S, Waitrose, and Sainsbury's supermarket together with an array of restaurants and coffee shops in the newly developed Mulberry Walk.
One of the many advantages of the area is its location for fast communications to the M42, M6,
M6 Toll and Birmingham International/NEC.
