With a little work done recently in preparation for sale, this two-bedroom, semi-detached house on the north side of Sheffield offers a buyer an opportunity to snap up a home in a convenient location which still offers plenty of potential. Unassuming from the outside, theres no denying the gardens are a blank canvas awaiting the arrival of a new owner with green fingers but the house itself has benefited from recent modifications, which mean the accommodation is now comparatively modern while still offering plenty of potential.
Lindsay Avenue is in a residential area between Parson Cross and Sheffield Lane Top on the north side of the city, known as Europes greenest. Indeed, wooded walks along Sheffield Lane Dike and on to Parson Cross Park are almost on the doorstep, although shops, restaurants and an Asda supermarket at Chaucer Road are not far away either. The area also boasts some excellent educational opportunities with Firth Park Academy, Longley Park Sixth Form College, Hartley Brook Primary and Southey Green Primary all rated Good at their last Ofsted inspections. There are a number of doctors surgeries in the area to choose from while bus stops linking the area to the city centre are just minutes away.
The property boasts a D rating on its EPC, with some loft insulation, double glazing, low-energy lighting in 70% of the fittings and with heat provided by a programmable gas-fired central heating system, with all radiators fitted with thermostatic valves. The external door from the garden opens into the hallway with stairs to the first floor to the left, an archway leading into the kitchen/diner to the right and an internal door into the living room ahead. The kitchen is fitted with base and wall units in an L-shape, incorporating a four-ring electric hob and oven, a stainless steel sink with mixer tap, and space and plumbing for either a washing machine or dishwasher. A wood effect floor complements wood work tops which all have white splashback tiles fitted above. The carpeted living room includes a striking feature fireplace with white marble effect mantle and dark marble-effect hearth. The stairs to the first floor lead to a landing where internal doors open onto the master bedroom with in-built storage cupboard, a second double bedroom and the house bathroom, fitted with white three-piece bathroom suite. Tiles surround the bath, which has a shower attachment fitted over, while the floor has been laid to water-resistant linoleum.
Elevated slightly from the road, access to the house is along a path and up a short flight of steps through the front garden leading to the side of the property, where access to the house is possible through twin UPVC doors leading into either a hallway or directly into the kitchen. The path continues into the rear garden which is surrounded by timber fencing. The property includes both an entry alarm system and security lighting over the entrance doors.
In our opinion, this property is ideal for first-time buyers looking to start out on the property ladder, a new owner with an eye for a project or perhaps a buy-to-let investor. As ever though, wed thoroughly recommend a viewing to fully appreciate the accommodation on offer and the convenient Sheffield location.
