    Four Oaks Area Guides

    Four Oaks is an area of Sutton Coldfield, a suburb of Birmingham. Four Oaks is an extremely affluent residential area of the West Midlands. The Four Oaks area lies along the north and east borders of Sutton Park. Four Oaks is situated approximately 7 ¹⁄₂ miles north of Birmingham City Centre and is bordered by Sutton Park, Streetly, Mere Green, Little Aston and Roughley. In 1677, Henry Folliott, 1st Barron Folliott of Ballyshannon, bought 60 acres of woodland and built Four Oaks Hall.
    From there it was sold to Simon Lutterell, 1st Earl of Carhampton who remodeled the hall into a house and added a further 50 acres on to the plot. Consequently, the land got passed down through generations and sold to many men. When the land would get sold, almost every time the new owner would buy some land from the neighboring woodland, making the Four Oaks estate larger.
    Eventually, between 1895 and 1915 approximately 200 houses were built on the estate, forming Four Oaks Estate. The famous Four Oaks Estate is home to several private roads housing vast mansions and some of the region’s wealthiest individuals. Driving around the estate takes you through a vista of trees and enormous homes, many of which are hidden by enormous gates.
