Portershill Drive was constructed with retirement and ease of living in mind and is situated in a most convenient location just off Tanworth Lane, close to the junction with the main A34 Stratford Road.

Across the main Stratford Road one will find Sainsbury’s supermarket and a pedestrian walkway leads from there into the Retail Park with its vast array of superstores. At the junction of Tanworth Lane and Shakespeare Drive is a small parade of local shops with a convenience store, and the shopping facilities extend north along the A34 Stratford Road into the town centre of Shirley, where there is a wide and comprehensive range of shops and choice of restaurants, community centre and Shirley park. Frequent bus services operate along the Stratford Road into Birmingham City Centre and its outlying suburbs, or alternatively into the town centre of Solihull where once again there is an excellent choice of shopping facilities. Shirley has its own railway station situated in nearby Haslucks Green Road.

The residents of Portershill Drive enjoy communal facilities including resident development manager, 'Careline' alert system, full on-site laundry facilities, a community lounge, a range of social activities and en-suite guest accommodation. The property enjoys level ground floor access and internal doors wide enough to accommodate the passage of a wheelchair. There is an age restriction that all residents who occupy the properties have to be over the age of 55.

An ideal location therefore for this ground floor maisonette which benefits from an extended lease and is set back from the road behind a lawned foregarden with paved pathway that leads to a UPVC double glazed front door with canopy porch over, which opens to the
