Highbury Hall, Yew Tree Road, Birmingham - Birmingham

Highbury Hall was built in 1879 as the family home of Joseph Chamberlain and designed by local architect JH Chamberlain. It is a large and ornate brick and stone house surrounded by landscaped gardens. The interior of the house is particularly elaborate and uses a variety of different materials. Currently, the ground floor is used for events but the upper two floors are vacant. Poor rainwater detailing and ongoing maintenance issues has caused several leaks to the interior of the building; the upper two storeys are also affected, as is the main hall.
