The cosy living room has plenty of room for seating and a bay window at the front, there are period features including original internal doors, picture rails and coving, these also run throughout the house.
At the far side of the living room is the doorway to the kitchen. The kitchen was remodelled approximately 3 years ago, it is a timeless Shaker style with units in an L-shape along two walls, additional units also run along the opposite wall providing incredible amounts of storage. In terms of appliances, there is an induction electric hob with extractor above, electric oven with grill above and space for a tall fridge/freezer and dishwasher. From the back of the kitchen is the porch that has doors to the rear garden.
On the first floor are three bedrooms and the bathroom. Bedroom one is at the front of the property, it is a good double bedroom with bay window and built-in storage cupboards to the side of the chimney breast. Bedroom two is another double bedroom at the rear and overlooks the garden. Bedroom three is a single bedroom at the front that is currently used as a home office.

Sheffield's stunning surrounding countryside is also easy to access via Manchester Road (A57) meaning sights such as Ladybower Reservoir are less than 10 miles away.
WHAT THE VENDOR SAYS
"The property is located on the boundary between Crookes and Crosspool. We enjoy taking the short walk down to both Crookes and Crosspool centres, or slightly further to Broomhill, to go to cafes for brunch, or for a sociable drink in one of the selection of pubs. Access to the city centre is quick and easy with regular public transport options.
The neighbours on the quiet street are a mixture of families and professionals. The property is close to highly-regarded schools and would be an ideal base for a young family. We really appreciate the proximity to the countryside. Pleasant walks are possible from the doorstep and the Peak District is close at hand for walks, runs, cycling and climbing. We have really enjoyed our time in this property and have enjoyed renovating and modernising to create a home."
The property tenure is leasehold, the lease has approximately 700 years remaining and the ground rent is £3.56 per year. The combination boiler was installed in December 2014 and is located in the kitchen, the majority of the house was re-wired approximately three years ago
