This stunning property located on Station Road, just off the bustling High Street of Harborne is part of the Harborne and Edgbaston institute. It was opened in 1878 by the renown Victorian Sir Henry Irving during its 25 year run as an arts establishment including apparently the poet Hillarie Belloc. The Institute was a local landmark, it was a theatre for 800 people, plus reading rooms, meeting spaces and rehearsal rooms. When it closed in 1910 it was taken over by the Masons and used as a Masonic Lodge. After that, The Chad Valley Toy Company took over the building before finally becoming an antique centre. In 2003 the building was reborn as 9 deluxe homes with private and landscaped grounds, secure parking and a gated entrance. Also in catchment area for the highly desirable Harborne Primary School.
