 It was extended in the mid to late 1800s and offers accommodation of the very highest calibre, the old blending seamlessly with the new, thanks to tasteful improvements by the current owners.

Tucked away on School Green Lane and on the doorstep of the Mayfield Valley, the cottage is also conveniently placed for access into Fulwood Village.

It is also only a short distance from Ecclesall Road with its choice of shopping outlets and eateries, and Sheffield city centre itself, with all that it has to offer in terms of amenities and interest. 

Standing in extensive, beautifully tended grounds that include the tennis court, the cottage accommodation is light and bright, yet its stonework and rustic beams add to the warmth and aged aspects of the property.
