Ivan Fewtrell, Purplebricks' local property expert for Sheffield, said: “Victoria Quays is right at the former end of a canal and was converted around 15 years ago.

"The original warehouse was constructed between 1816 and 1819 and was used to unload all the goods from the canal before they were taken and delivered to the people of Sheffield.

"That means this property is right in the heart of the city centre – so you’re really close to all public transport, bars, offices, as well as having great road links from Sheffield Parkway straight to the M1 motorway.”
