  1. I agree with the idea behind what you say, but I think looking at Sheffield as a clock face from 6 to 10 o'clock would be a better guide for the middle class areas.
  2. Where is this house? Some areas of Sheffield are going for a fair whack over asking price these days.
  3. I thought part of this plan involved the demoliiton of the stretch of buildings running down the left side of the road as you head towards the city centre and then road widening. Is that not happening?
  4. If you're happy with a terraced house you'd be looking at Crookes, Walkley, Greystones, Nether Edge or Meersbrook. Crookes and Walkley are quite studenty which is worth taking into account. Meersbrook and Nether Edge are very popular with young professionals, with bars, independent shops and restaurants, and they're right next to each other. There are also a lot of vintage shops in those areas if that floats your boat (the Sheffield "Antiques Quarter"). Edit: For some reason, I thought you wanted to walk into the city centre easily, which you could from Nether Edge and Meersbrook, but you wouldn't be able to walk into uni that quickly.
  5. Woodseats: some lovely roads, some less lovely roads. Surrounded by nice areas, but because of its large shopping street, attracts less desirable types from the few council estates in the south west of Sheffield. Good area on the whole, but not a place with a lots of buzz about it.
  6. Now being reported in The Guardian: https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2019/apr/23/shots-fired-at-home-labour-councillor-sheffield
  7. Look between 6 and 10 o 'clock if you think of Sheffield as a clock face for the nicer parts. If you're looking at the south side of Sheffield to have easy access to Chesterfield, there's a wide choice of nice areas with good schools and parks. There are "trendier" areas closer to the city centre but still easy to get out of the city from like Greystones, sharrow Vale, Meersbrook, Nether edge, which have mostly Victorian houses and are near good schools and parks, and quieter, more suburban areas like Beauchief, Totley, Norton, Greenhill, Bradway, where you will find newer semis with larger gardens. Depends what you're after.
  8. Trust me on this. Don't touch them with a barge pole. Get tiles, and use a different company.
  9. It wasn't a shop in Woodseats that recommended this was it?
  10. At 27, having lived at home, has he got any savings towards a flat rental/purchase? Has he got a job which would allow him to rent a modest one bed flat somewhere? Or is your friend expecting the good life to be presented to him on a platter?
  11. Surf and Turf on Chesterfield Road is very nice (#31 out of #1194 restaurants in Sheffield on Tripadvisor), although I'm not sure what their opening times are. https://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g186364-d7214533-Reviews-Surf_Turf_Restaurant-Sheffield_South_Yorkshire_England.html
  12. 140k won't get you a house in the "nice" parts of the city near the centre that are popular with young professionals (Nether Edge, Meersbrook, Greystones, Sharrow Vale, Crookes, Walkley) unless you get a real doer upper. You might find something in the slightly cheaper Heeley (although the average price for a terrace is 161k and rising quickly or in slighter cheaper still Hillsborough where the average price for a terrace is 151k and is probably the least fashionable of the areas mentioned). How about the area around Norfolk Park/Granville Road? It's close to the city centre and even though it can be a bit sketchy, the average price for a terrace is 131k. In its nicer parts it's got some amazing roads (have a nosey at Norfolk Road - in my opinion it has some of the nicest houses in the city). I could see this area being the next "up and coming" area.
  13. You won't get much change (if any) out of 180k for a 3 bed terrace in Meersbrook these days. It's an extremely popular part of town.
  14. But Meersbrook Avenue is south west of the city centre so surely it could have been coming from the south?
  15. What kind of house are you looking for? If you look at Sheffield as a clock face, start searching in Meersbrook and move round to Crookes and you won't go too far wrong with anywhere in between (6 o'clock to 10 o'clock).
  16. You've been part of a tenants association for ten years and you can't spell tenant? Smells fishy to me.
  17. Where was this house? Some parts of Sheffield seem to be booming at the moment still, despite slowdowns elsewhere.
  18. Just look on rightmove. No point contacting agents directly as you're limiting your options massively. Why are you set on Crookes, incidentally, if you're not even in Sheffield yet?
  19. S10 isn't closer to Hillsborough really. S10 ends at St Mary's roundabout which is a stone's throw from Bramall Lane.
  20. Yep. The child/young adult and his family need to take responsibility and should have sought help for his problems earlier. A mainstream school is clearly not suitable for this child/young adult. I never said anything about "giving him a w(h)ack" though.
  21. Interesting. I prefer the decor of a place I spend time to be original and distinctive and to make to feel comfortable. For instance, Tramshed, Tramshed Kitchen, Create Coffee and Bhaji Shack up the road have been really well designed and furnished and are places I like to spend time. Not knocking the quality of the products they're selling at Pour, though. I hope it does well.
  22. There should certainly be more of an onus on the parents to take responsibility. Mentioning class is always going to annoy some people but I'm going to do it anyway. Having worked in a number of schools across the city, representing the full spectrum of class/income/background etc., the strong impression I got was that the most well-adjusted children were those from middle-middle and working (and I mean working) class families. Those with the biggest behavioural problems were from benefits-claiming class, with a surprising number from the upper-middle class.
  23. Whether it should or it shouldn't - it simply never will be brought back. Rigorous, consistent behaviour boundaries with a clear system of reward and punishment are the way forward, I think.
