Enjoy Scandinavian living at this unique Little Kelham property in the heart of Sheffield
Scandinavian living in the heart of Sheffield; that’s what this three-bedroom townhouse in Little Kelham is aiming to provide.
In a time where terms like ‘sustainable’ and ‘eco-friendly’ are more prevalent than ever, Citu Home has committed to creating homes built to tackle some of the greatest challenges of our lifetime.
This Garden House Type Four, on Alma Street, has three large bedrooms which all have bags of space. The largest boasts an en-suite and its own roof terrace overlooking the garden deck.
But getting down the nitty-gritty, it is a smart home designed to help you get the most out of your living, whilst helping you to lower your personal carbon footprint. The house is digitally enasbled, meaning the owner can control and monitor the energy use from the palm of their hand. Control your heating and hot water schedules, view your usage compared to the previous month, and keep a log of all your important documents relating to your home and the community. A Home & Away switch helps you save energy, letting you switch off non-essential appliances remotely.
There is also a mechanical ventilation heat recovery system - that filters the air and recycles heat.
The open plan first floor is brightly lit with natural light from large floor-to-ceiling windows at both ends. There is a huge open-plan kitchen, dining, and living room, that is perfect for entertaining. The kitchen in the centre delineates a separate dining area which looks out onto your private patio and the shared garden deck, which is a great place for kids to play. The integrated garage, utility room and the option to purchase a dedicated store, means plenty of storage space.
The location of this property, at Kelham Island, was recently voted one of the top 10 hippest places to live in the UK. It is the creative heart of Sheffield, a short walk from the city centre and right next to a tram stop, putting all of Sheffield at the fingertips of its residents. The island itself features a whole host of cafés, a wide range of award winning restaurants, a quality ale trail, and the Kelham Island Museum.
And whether it’s live music, or retro-gaming arcades you’re into, Kelham Island has plenty of things to entertain, as well as variety of open spaces and unique places to gather with family and friends. Cafes spill out onto public squares, where people play boules in the afternoon sun. The quiet chatter mingles with the sound of the river flowing by. Green roofs bring pollinating insects, which you'll see fluttering past the iconic grade II listed heritage of the newly restored mills. Whether your windows look onto the tree-lined banks of the River Don, the Bessemer converter of Kelham Island museum or the clock tower of Green Lane Works, you'll never tire of gazing out. As if that wasn't enough, thanks to the Kelham Island Arts Collective, there is also an urban art gallery on the doorstep, with an art gallery walk for residents to stretch their legs around whenever the feeling takes them. Little Kelham Utilities provides all utility and data services to the homes and workspaces with competitive tariffs. City Homes also believe in futureproofing, which is why there are no telephone sockets and aerial points in their homes. A shared fibre internet connection serves the whole of Little Kelham and brings fibre cabling directly into your home. This is the only available Garden House Type 4 left in Little Kelham. You can view this property in virtual reality in the Leeds Show Home, or in Little Kelham at an open day on July 17. Viewings by appointment only. Call 0113 4513076 to book.
