Duplex apartment blends modern taste with Sheffield's industrial charm

This stunning 1700 sq ft duplex apartment in Sheffield is on the market for £350,000 – ideal for entertaining and working from home.

Stand Out features of the property in Brooklyn Works, Kelham Island, include the open plan living space with a high quality kitchen, the blend of modern fixtures and character industrial charm.

It is on the market with Purplebricks and Ivan Fewtrell, the company’s property expert for Sheffield, said: "Brooklyn Works has a rich history.

"Prior to being converted into residential apartments, the Grade II listed building was a former site of steel, saw and file manufacture.

"It retains original period features and is full of character. It is the perfect property for both entertaining and working from home.

"Whoever is lucky enough to secure this property will be in walking distance of all the boutique bars and restaurants on the doorstep in Kelham Island, which was named as one of the top ten coolest places to live in Britain."

The Brooklyn Works is a former site of steel, saw and file manufacture, on Green Lane.

The works were converted into residential apartments and offices. The structure is a Grade II listed building because of its importance as an example of Sheffield’s industrial heritage.

The works stand next to the listed industrial buildings of the Green Lane Works and Cornish Place in what has been called “the most coherent stretch of industrial landscape in inner Sheffield”. For more details visit
