During the Victorian era, a rise in population meant a property boom with a large number of homes built to cater to the growing population. Many homes still stand today and are as beautiful and grand as they were back then.

There is a galleried first floor landing with access to the family bathroom. The drive leading to the garage and off road parking, the neighbour has vehice access.

The brochure decribes the gardens as attractive and they are on the front of the house and to both sides.

It is close to Chelsea Park, listed as one of the city's Historic Parks and was originally laid out as the private gardens to Brincliffe Towers in 1852. It was given to the people of Sheffield in 1925 by a former Lord Mayor and Alderman Dr Robert Styring. The original small playground from 1966 was replaced, alongside a canopy and basketball area, in 2005.
