So you’ve heard us talk a little about Steenberg’s Yard by now, right? Ok sure, we say ‘a little’, others might say we’re obsessed – can you blame us? Have you seen how amazing this development is looking?!

You know the one we’re talking about – the uber-stylish new development of apartments overlooking the Ouseburn, signed by award-winning urban regeneration specialists PfP igloo and designed by Xsite Architecture, (the practice behind the River Brew Co., Wylam Brewery and Rockcliffe Hall Spa Garden, FYI).

And we know we don’t need to tell you how cool the Ouseburn Valley is. A stone’s throw from Newcastle’s city centre, with stellar transport links and its own micro-community of creatives and culture-lovers, everything you could ever need is just a short walk away. We’ve even given you 51 reasons to live there, already – how many more reasons do you need?!


But of course, we get that you’d need to know exactly what you’re buying into. Yes, so you know Steenberg’s Yard is a development of 2 and 3 bedroom homes offering a unique standard of living right in the middle of one of the Sunday Times’ Best Places to Live. Yes, you may know that the apartments have taken their inspiration from the site’s Danish links and display that characteristically Danish talent for using space and natural light to their very best advantage. And sure, the generous outdoor terraces haven’t escaped your notice, either.

But what exactly do each of these 28 incredible homes look like? Well, we can help you out with that now, too. Because we’ve picked the brains of super specialist sales agents Urban BASE (aka the North East’s answer to Selling Sunset) – who have been working closely with PfP igloo every step of the way – to give you aaaaall the deets. They’re also the sales team behind some of the North East’s coolest and most unique developments, so you already know Steenberg’s is going to be a cut above your average apartment block.


And just to prove it, Urban BASE have recently informed us that ALL the 2-bed duplexes in Steenberg’s Yard have now been sold. That means that now over 60% of all the properties here have now been sold – so if you’re wanting to get in on the action, you’re going to have to be quick.

But that’s enough from us – here’s the low-down on the different sized apartments at Steenberg’s Yard, which will all be ready to occupy from summer. See you there, neighbour!

These two-bedroom homes are accessed through their front gate, set back and on the same level as Ouse Street. The property itself offers the resident a beautiful, contemporary living space with large, glazed doors leading to your private outdoor terrace overlooking the river.

With a kitchen filled with Bosch appliances, a bathroom equipped with Ideal Standard Tempo rage sanitaryware and Bristan Prism brassware, there’s no doubt these properties are fitted with the modern homeowner in mind.

Additional features of the two-bed duplex apartment include fitted wardrobes in the main bedroom, and super-fast fibre broadband which can be supplied by Virgin Media or BT with a freeview antenna to serve each home.

Windows are PURe range tilt and turn, triple-glazed aluminium and open for cleaning. Kitchen and living spaces are all floored throughout with Altro Suprema ‘Vintage Cherry’, while bathrooms, ensuites and cloakrooms are floored with Altro Suprema in ‘Alaska’, with enhanced slip-resistance. And in the outdoor terrace, hard-wearing composite decking adds that luxe feel to your alfresco set up.


There are 12, 3-bedroom homes accessed through their own front gate, set back and on the same level as Ouse Street.

The 3-bed duplex is fitted with the same beautiful kitchen appliances as the 2 Bed Duplex, including fully fitted Howdens Kitchen in the sleek Clerkenwell super-matt handleless range. Cabinets are in charcoal with light grey above and decorative chrome pyramid lighting, 110 degree standard soft-close hinges and soft-close drawers.

Gas central heating is supplied via a SEDBUK A-rated gas fired condensing combination boiler, housed within a Clerkenwell Super-Matt cabinet.

The apartment comes equipped with an ensuite featuring a Bristan Prism wall mounted rain-shower and handset in chrome with dual control and concealed fittings.


These stunning, 3-bedroom upper duplex homes are arranged across the upper levels of Steenberg’s Yard, and all feature a top floor, open-plan kitchen and bright living space.

These properties have three-metre ceiling heights and impressive heritage proportions rarely found in new homes, which add a huge amount of class.

The kitchens stay sophisticated with a Bosch hob with bespoke Howdens Glass splashback in white, a Bosch oven and integrated Lamona fridge, freezer and dishwasher.

The bathroom has similar Ideal Standard Tempo rage sanitaryware, bath and shower arrangements as the 3-bedroom duplex, complete with a bespoke vanity to neatly house the washbasin, and a full-length mirror above.

All equipped with glazed doors which lead out to your private outdoor terrace – a terrace which enjoys unrivalled views overlooking the Ouseburn Valley and the River Tyne – what more could you want from a home?!
