Grove House on Hillfoot Road, Totley, is “beautifully positioned within striking distance” of the Peak District National Park and just six miles from Sheffield city centre.
The “elegant” four bedroom Victorian family home, interestingly was once owned by Thomas Youdan, organiser of the first ever multi-club tournament in the history of football.
It also comes with not one but two extra homes, one a three bedroom house on an extensive plot and a stream.
The current owner said: “The house is just beautiful and has a rich history, but I'd say that over and above anything else it was the setting that really sold it to us.
"I'd even go so far as to say that it's one of the best locations in southwest Sheffield. We're just a stone's throw from the National Park so on a whim we can pop out for long walks or a good bike ride through some of the most beautiful countryside, and we have a couple of cosy pubs just up the road, both of which do some lovely food. So our immediate surroundings feel very rural and we enjoy utter peace and privacy here, however we can jump in the car and be in Sheffield city centre in around twenty minutes. It's a place that offers the best of everything."We purchased the property ten years ago and the house was just lovely when we came here; the previous owners had really looked after it. However, we were very keen to put our own stamp on it so over time we've done quite a lot to enhance it yet further. We've beautifully refurbished the kitchen and the bathrooms, and my wife was in charge of the interior design, which is absolutely stunning throughout. Everything has been done very in keeping with the style and sense of history of the building, albeit with a bit of a modern twist."It's a fantastic family home; my wife and I have five children between us, but even when we're all here together we never get the feeling of being on top of one another. The rooms all boast generous proportions and we have a lovely big garden with areas for sitting and relaxing, and more than enough space for children to have a good run around. We also have a separate one-bed cottage that my wife currently uses as a acupuncture clinic, as well as a stable block that has been converted into a three-bedroom dwelling, which I currently use as my office, so all in all we have a superb amount of space both inside and out."
The house is being marketed by Fine & Country for offers in excess of £2,000,000.
