The current owners are keen climbers and were attracted initially by the location of the property, it’s a short walk to local shops but also a short drive from some incredible climbing spots. Something that surprised them was the amount of sun the house gets, it has a south-facing gable that helps warm the property when the sun is out. Since living at the property they’ve added off-street parking, installed a new kitchen and a new boiler.

The living room has plenty of space for seating, there are alcoves with shelving on either side of the chimney breast that has an electric fire installed.

Across the bottom of the stairs is the kitchen/dining room. The kitchen itself was installed in Spring 2022, there are plenty of sleek gloss units above and below the worktop and a subway tile splashback. In terms of appliances, there is an integrated electric oven, gas hob, extractor fan and space for a freestanding washing machine. The current owners have placed their extendable dining table in front of the window on the side of the property. There is an external door to the off-street parking and an internal door to the cellar.

On the first floor are a bedroom, a bathroom and a home office. The bedroom is a good double with ample room for furniture plus storage under the stairs to the second floor. The bathroom is finished to a modern standard, there is a bath with a large overhead shower and handheld shower attachment, WC, towel radiator and vanity unit. Next door is the home office, the current owners have said how this room heats up quickly when the sun shines as the window is south facing. This is also where the Ideal combination boiler is currently located, it was installed in 2021 and is still under warranty.

Bedroom two is located on the second floor, it’s a double-bedroom which has been used regulalry as a guest room.

Externally, the rear garden was converted into off-street parking by the current owners. On the side of the property they still have a private small garden that has been perfect for having BBQs, enjoying that morning brew or after-work glass of wine.

Crookes is an incredibly popular suburb with all types as it has a fantastic variety of independent shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. As with many areas of Sheffield, you don’t have to go far for greenspace, there is the small park on Lydgate Lane and Bolehills Park is just slightly further away. For those that want beautiful countryside, you don't have to travel far. Rivelin Valley Nature Trail, Damflask Reservoir and Ladybower Reservoir are just a few places a short drive away.
