There are also excellent grammar schools in the area and three universities.

The Edgbaston Priory and Nuffield Hospitals, the Queen Elizabeth Development and the new Dental Hospital are also centres of medical excellence.  

Description Symphony Court was developed by Crosby Homes in the mid 1990's and was a pioneering development that set a new benchmark for city living. Few developments since have come close to matching the quality of Symphony Court which was built before the frenzy of demand from developers resulted in higher density developments and lower quality buildings.

With some 143 apartments and townhouses set upon a large triangular site within the Brindley Loop Canal, Symphony Court offers an exclusive gated environment with residents' gymnasium, allocated and visitor parking, and 24 hour on-site security.

Symphony Court is divided into several "houses" with Britten House being identified as the prime building within the development, providing some of the best canal views on offer. As such, Britten house was enhanced by Crosby Homes, being the only house with lift access and a smartly furnished communal entrance hall.

The apartment itself was refurbished in June 2015 which included the addition of new space heaters throughout and a new immersion hot water heating system. Another improvement was the new carpet in the entrance hall which has a spacious feel and a fitted storage cupboard providing space to hang coats etc.

The entrance hall leads through to the kitchen, which was also refurbished in 2015 to include (amongst other things) a new oven, dishwasher, washing machine, worktops and cupboards. This room also has one of the many windows which displays picturesque views of the surrounding canals.

The lounge/diner is a generous size and has fitted shelving which provides an ample amount of storage space, and again there are windows in here which show off outstanding views of the canal.

The bedroom is again a very good size and boasts a spacious walk in wardrobe and yet more canal-side views. The en suite was refitted (including new flooring) at the same time as the other improvements and now has a matching white bathroom suite, heated towel rail, and shower unit above the bath.

In addition to the en suite there is also another toilet and wash basin adjoining the entrance hall which also provides an airing cupboard.

The flat also comes with an allocated parking space in the secure under croft and there is also plenty of allocated visitor parking for guests.
