There’s no place like home at The School Yard

When buying a new car you don’t think twice about choosing the model, colour and interior specification; you configure your purchase to suit you and that’s exactly the opportunity EDG Property is presenting, to ensure your ultimate apartment is found at The School Yard, Harborne. It’s great for those who don’t like compromise and let’s face it; you always want to put your own stamp on any new home you buy.

With the historic Clock Tower standing central to the scheme, The School Yard will host amazing dining experiences with the likes of Prezzo and Metro Bar & Grill already signed. Food School Kitchen will deliver artisan cookery, showcasing the work of best local chefs and world famous University College Birmingham. The Headmaster’s House is being returned to its former residential glory and the derelict playground will be transformed into a new public square. And, it’s overlooking this urban oasis that the handful of extra-special apartments at The School Yard will be found.

Situated in a contemporary new build, on two residential levels, with secure access, lift, glazed atrium, allocated car parking and the benefit of an on-site property manager. As for the number of bedrooms, floor layout and specification, well you will be able to have your say!

“I believe this is the first time this truly flexible approach has been offered in Birmingham” said EDG Property’s Neil Edginton. “It’s a chance to work with award winning architects, K4, to bespoke your actual apartment layout, not just choose the colour of the wall tiles! You are not buying a ‘shell’; every apartment will be fitted out to the highest standard by our team and handed over to the new owner having been customised. It’s an extremely exciting opportunity for anyone looking for their dream apartment in Harborne.”

Harborne is widely recognised as one of the most desirable places to live in the West Midlands. Here you can enjoy the high life of Birmingham city centre, just 3 miles away, yet still retain a sense of village atmosphere. The redevelopment of this heritage building in such a prime location will provide cul-de-sac living in close proximity to established retailers including Marks & Spencer, Waitrose, Sainsbury’s and Boots.

“The availability will be limited and restricted to early off-plan sales,” said Neil. “We do appreciate that this ‘design your own’ experience may not appeal to everyone, so there will be a select number of boutique, pre-planned and pre-designed 1 and 2 bedroom apartments also released. All will enjoy a superior specification and some will have winter gardens. The choice is yours!”

The apartments are not yet released at The School Yard and with no more than 10 apartments anticipated for this new address; it really is first come, first served. EDG Property will be hosting an off-plan sales event for pre-registered parties in the coming weeks.
