Cheylesmore has a mixture of antique shops, pubs and supermarkets, and is known for its green spaces and 19th-century architecture. Earlsdon is the longest established neighbourhood, with large Georgian properties and Edwardian buildings, and it is now a home to businesses and residential properties. Whitley holds some of Coventry's most noteworthy industrial and engineering sites, such as Coventry Transport Museum and Triumph Motorcycles.

The properties within CV1 area mainly consist of terraced, semi-detached, and detached houses, as well as some apartments, a few of which have recently been built.
