This thriving, diverse city in the West Midlands is compact in size but big in character
Named one of the best cities to raise a family last year, Wolverhampton is a bustling spot with plenty to offer homebuyers looking for the perfect place to settle down.
Located just north of Birmingham, the city itself is packed with shops, restaurants and attractions, as well as a museum, art gallery, theatre and a handful of National Trust properties. It’s also blessed with several good schools and a university, not to mention excellent rail and road connections.

In terms of property, much of the city centre itself is now flats, so look to neighbouring areas such as Tettenhall and Bridgnorth for quieter residential spots with more of a village feel that are still in close reach of the action.
With plenty of investment going on in the area, now is a great time to buy in Wolverhampton. It’s also a pretty affordable part of the world at the moment, with average property prices coming in at a mere £185,333.

Four-bed cottage, Shaw Hall Lane, Coven Heath, £495,000
We might just be bold enough to say Peach Cottage is our favourite home on the market in Wolverhampton right now. With its semi-rural location and sprawling estate stretching over 1.5 acres, space is certainly on your side here.
From the private gated entrance, a gravel driveway sweeps through the beautifully maintained front gardens and up to the stunning home, where you’ll also find the garage block and laundry room.
Having been substantially renovated over the years, the home now offers beautiful accommodation over two levels, with a striking open-plan kitchen and dining room that commands your attention on the ground floor. We especially love the exposed brickwork and social breakfast bar!
Elsewhere is a lounge and a further reception room, while all four bedrooms are located on the first floor, along with a palatial bathroom boasting a roll top bath and walk-in shower.
Outside, a rear patio offers the perfect spot to soak up the summer sun, while the formal lawn houses a stable block and wood store. Surrounding the home are level paddocks and a kennel building, so if you’re after space for your four-legged friends you're in luck.

A refitted kitchen benefits from an adjoining utility room, while elsewhere a traditional dining room provides a more formal place to entertain. Four bedrooms and a bathroom complete the accommodation on offer here.
To the rear of the property, landscaped ground with a host of trees and shrubs create a wonderfully private place for a family to enjoy.
