Malvern Hall
This former country house at the end of Brueton Avenue was originally completed in 1702 for the local squarson Humphrey Greswold on the site of an ancient farm, but completely remodelled in 1784 by Sir John Soane for his descendant Henry Greswold-Lewis. It was painted by John Constable who visited in 1809 LinkExternal link . The portico with Ionic columns was added in 1811. It was a three-storey building, but by the end of the 19th century it was in poor condition and in 1896 David Troman bought the property and reduced it to two storeys; the balustrade behind the pediment dates from this time. In the 1930s, having been purchased by Solihull Council, it became a school for girls and is now the home of the independent St Martin's School. LinkExternal link
