This imposing, stone-built Victorian house is one of 35 ‘properties with potential’ going under the hammer next month.
The detached property, in a prime location at 24 Clarkehouse Road, Sheffield S10, is to be auctioned with a guide price of £250,000.
Originally built as a single residence, it was latterly used as a child referral centre, but has potential for residential conversion.
It is going to auction in conjunction with Kier Asset Partnership Services, on behalf of Sheffield City Council. The authority’s legal and surveyor fees are payable by the purchaser at 3% of purchase price (minimum £500).
The building comprises approximately 225 square metres of floor space over three levels, including a basement made up of three cellars.
It is fitted with gas central heating and modern wiring, fire and security systems.
The main entrance opens into a hallway, leading to a front room, a kitchen and rear entrance lobby.
There are three further ground floor rooms, currently used as offices.
Stairs lead up to a first floor landing where there are male and female wcs and four more offices, varying from 15.8 to 21.5 square metres in size.
A further staircase rises to the second floor where there are two more wcs, two spacious attic offices and a store room.
The property occupies a prominent plot on the corner of Clarkehouse Road and College Street, with a garden to the front and both sides.
Vehicular access is via a rear yard which includes a substantial garage and adjoining store.
The property will be auctioned by Mark Jenkinson & Son on Tuesday, June 4, at the Platinum Suite, Sheffield United FC, Bramall Lane, Sheffield.
