A life changing opportunity to win my cottage in Brincliffe, Sheffield and raise money for The Children's Hospital Charity.
It's a beautiful house with lovely neighbours and I have enjoyed my time here very much but due to personal circumstances it's time to move on. We have seen this done before and thought it was a great idea.
I get to sell my cottage, support a very worthy cause and give someone the most amazing life changing experience. Perhaps even a start on the property ladder?!
Proud Sheffielders will tell you that, just like Rome, their city has seven hills. It also has an ideal suburb for at least as many property tribes.
First-timers find a foothold in the terraces of Hillsborough and Meersbrook, bohemians head for newly cool Sharrow Vale and investors like the city centre and Kelham Island, near the Royal Hallamshire Hospital and Sheffield University. Postgrads settle on the slopes of Walkley, brave pioneers colonise former industrial outposts such as Oughtibridge, affluent retirees adore the peace of Totley and Dore… and middle-class families?
Well, they head straight for the S11 and S10 postcodes, which fan out from the tree-lined streets of affluent Ranmoor and Fulwood, down past the Botanical Gardens and Endcliffe Park, to lively Ecclesall Road (which has a Waitrose) and out towards uber-respectable Whirlow, where the Peak District beckons.
There are plenty of independent shops, coffee stops and restaurants such as Turnip & Thyme, a proper neighbourhood bistro that serves classics like crispy sea bass with potato rösti (£13.95) and apple and blackberry crumble for pud.
This part of Sheffield is urbanised, for sure, with traffic to match, but it's enlightened by that great industrial Victorian legacy, wonderful parks. Endcliffe is a local favourite: its distinctive black- and white-timbered cafe hosts community events and welcomes dogs. Walk off your smashed avocado on toast (£6) or bacon sandwich and hash brown (£4) with a two-mile stroll to Forge Dam, beside the Porter Brook, a beauty spot and a reminder that Sheffield was built on steel.
There's a new confidence and vigour here: house prices are on the rise, millions of pounds are being invested in Heart of the City, a regeneration scheme to reverse 1970s mistakes (there were many), and a stop on the HS2 line is eagerly awaited at Sheffield Midland station.
Things are shining up like vintage silver plate, especially around the creative industries and advanced engineering. City Hall, the FlyDSA Arena and the Crucible and Lyceum theatres host big touring artists and productions, as well as the World Snooker Championship. The Millennium Gallery augments its permanent Ruskin collection with talks and life drawing classes.
And these are heady days for the city's football fans (if you're a Blade, not an Owl): Sheffield United were promoted to the Premier League last season and are now challenging for a place in Europe next season. Celebrity fans include the Game of Thrones star Sean Bean — if only all 23 of his dead screen characters were alive to see this.
Close to first class amenities but hidden away on an unassuming road with an entrance for cars at only one end, creates a peaceful setting with minimal traffic for this period stone-built 2 bed georgian cottage.
Retaining its period features such as a stone fireplace, stone staircase and with wooden beams throughout, this property emanates strength and character.
978 sq ft spread over 4 floors and with the peaceful haven of a garden to relax in you'll fall in love with this property.
