Fairy tale cottage tucked away close to Sheffield city center with views of ‘big skies and sunsets’

These images show the unique fairytale cottage described as a ‘hidden gem’ just off Sheffield’s city centre. It’s on the market for £500,000 and according to RightMove it’s in an “amazing setting”.

Rose Cottage on Cat Lane bills itself as a ‘forever family home’ with the 1885 property still boasting many character features. The sizable cottage is a stone’s throw from Sheffield’s city center, yet nestled in the greenery between allotments and woodland, with the babble of Meersbrook just outside the gates.

The property sits proudly in beautiful gardens and private land at the end of a 300 meter track. Electronic gates add another level of secrecy leading to a courtyard with parking for many vehicles.

Outside there is also a large double garage, firewood store, biomass boiler, greenhouse, small tool shed and outdoor WC. Surrounding the property are peaceful and private lawned gardens. Surrounded by many mature fruit trees, it is a great space for children to play or adults to entertain and dine al fresco.

Entering the house into a small entrance hall, a door in front of you leads to the basement. To your right is a good size dining room/study with a fireplace and two large windows allowing light to enter.

To your left is the kitchen which is fitted with traditional style cream units and a lovely feature is an open plan pantry space built into the wall fitted with wooden shelves. Another hallway leads from the kitchen to a light and airy hallway that leads to the back door.

On the opposite side of the kitchen is an open wooden staircase that leads to the first floor before reaching a well-proportioned lounge with two large windows and another fireplace making this a really welcoming room.

Across the hall is a lovely bathroom with a pedestal bath, vintage white porcelain sink, separate shower stall, traditional cast iron radiator and black and white tile. There is also a separate room with WC.

On the first floor there are three good sized double bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room and WC. The current owners have restored and exposed the original hardwood floorboards and door here.

A long landing then leads to a large secure glass door that opens onto a fully wood covered “spectacular balcony” that runs the length of the property. Here, the listing promises homeowners “incredible views, big skies and sunsets.”

Another floor up has a double bedroom and a large room with exposed beams and wooden floors that once housed a full size sauna. For more information on this fantastic property, please visit the RightMove listing.
