Why Buy One of Our Birmingham Flats for Sale?

The latest addition to the Galliard Homes development portfolio is Timber Yard in Birmingham’s Southside. This development consists of two buildings with a total of 379 contemporary flats. East Block boasts elegant one, two and three bedroom flats while the other building, West Block, comprises a mix of studio flats and one and two bedroom apartments. Galliard Homes is developing Timber Yard in partnership with Apsley House Capital as part of a joint-venture project to construct 3,000 new homes in the city.

Each building surrounds a landscaped courtyard garden, and the majority of the apartments enjoy some outside space, whether a balcony, winter garden or terrace. While many apartments at Timber Yard have dedicated parking spaces (available to purchase at an additional cost), the Southside location is within a few minutes’ walk of transport hubs and many of the city’s top attractions. In addition, Timber Yard is designed as a mixed-use development, where commercial units will occupy the ground floor space. These new-build apartments are thoughtfully designed to provide enduring, energy-efficient and stylish homes.
