A fabulous, spacious, and beautifully presented 2 double bedroom garden apartment, commanding an enviable garden setting, yet close to a range of shops and facilities. Beechfield House is an attractive stone built detached property dating back to circa 1840 when the area now known as Broomhall Park was first developed. Historically, the property was the residence for the Cole family, better known to the Sheffield public for being founders of Cole Brothers Ltd, the predecessors to John Lewis. In 1985, the property was converted to 4 apartments, set within well-kept lawned grounds with a gated driveway and car parking. Number 4 occupies the whole of the ground floor, measuring an impressive 1,732 sq.ft. Retains period features, complemented by the installation of a log burner in 2015, engineered oak floors in 2018, an impressive new kitchen in 2019, and in 2020 a new separate shower room. Features include a private entrance hall, 3 reception rooms offering versatility, 2 spacious double bedrooms with vaulted ceilings, direct access onto the garden and car parking for 2 vehicles. Benefits from gas central heating run from a combination boiler and double glazing.
The accommodation in brief includes a private reception hallway at the rear of the property, making an immediate positive impression, being generous in size, finished with useful fitted storage units and an oak floor, which flows into one of the reception rooms and the breakfast kitchen. The lounge has a lovely, homely feel, with popular decorative tones and a focal log burner. French doors lead onto a stone flagged terrace with a stunning manicured garden backdrop. Both alcoves to the chimney with the log burner are open, leading into a study/snug area, which is cozy, and provides versatility. A further reception room has dual aspect windows overlooking the garden and can be used as a formal dining room, a family room, office, or an additional bedroom with some minor alterations. There is currently an opening into the breakfast kitchen, again of a good size, refurbished in 2019 to create the hub of the home. There is an extensive range of white, gloss fronted fitted units, with wood effect work-surfaces, including a breakfast bar. Included within the sale is an integrated double oven, a gas hob and extractor, dishwasher, fridge, and freezer. There is plumbing for a washing machine. A wall unit houses the combination boiler.
There are two double bedrooms, one being a very spacious, ‘L’ shaped room with dual aspect windows including French doors onto the rear garden. The second room is a beautiful double room with an exposed stone wall, a vaulted ceiling, and a garden outlook. There is a bathroom and a separate shower room. The former has a white suite including a bath with a shower attachment, a wash basin, WC, splash-back tiling, and a slate tiled floor. The separate shower room was completely refurbished in 2020, finished to a high standard, being fully tiled and having a double shower enclosure, a vanity wash basin and WC.
Outside, double gates open onto a driveway with car parking areas. The gates and driveway were resurfaced in 2015-2016. The owners of number four park vehicles at the rear beside their entrance door. All external areas are owned by the four freeholders, with a quarter share, and who come to informal arrangements about how the outside is used. The owners will explain more when showing you around. The grounds are beautiful, to three sides, having lawns, planted borders with an array of planting to provide seasonal colour, with hedging and trees, creating both a tranquil setting and privacy.
