The town of Bilston in the West Midlands is home to around 25,000 people and lies just 2 miles southeast of Wolverhampton. Bilston has good links to the M6 motorway and is within easy reach of Coseley railway station. The town is also handy for Birmingham International Airport.
There are still some Victorian terraced houses in Bilston, but many of these original two-up , two-down houses were replaced in the mid-twentieth century by more modern estate developments, with plenty of semi-detached houses in areas such as Stowlawn, The Lunt, Bunker's Hill and Woodcross. Property prices in these areas tend to be somewhat lower than in many other parts of the UK. You'll find plenty of moderately priced options around areas such as Roseville Precinct, Ashley Street, Fraser Street and Merstone Close.
There's a lot of rented, social housing in Bilston and the town is generally regarded as a good place for family accommodation.
You'll have to search harder for detached properties, as there are considerably fewer of these in the Bilston area, meaning that they are generally priced to reflect the premium they can command. Try the areas around Claremont Street, Flamborough Way and Harley Drive if you're looking for this kind of property.
