  1. As soon as I read the OP the first word into my mind was Crosspool!
  2. There does appear to be some works going off at present, though nothing too dramatic.
  3. Ranmoor is the place for large, grand houses - Old and new are available.
  4. Phoenix Futures have beaten you to it already, and I doubt they did it out of a sense of jealousy as you intend
  5. Its isn't just complaining on SF though; by mentioning yet another service failure it raises awareness of how pathetic the 51 actually is - Though I suspect that most of us who attempt to use it already know the score.
  6. Very much so if it prevents scrotes from stabbing people. Would you think that less stabbings were a bad outcome?
  7. The 52's are turning around at Crosspool. Kinda novel to see buses in the shopping centre, unless its the occasion 51 they decide to run......
  8. It may well have become a better area than it was before, but that does not mean it has suddenly become the new Fulwood!
  9. I have probably been on every street in the city at some point over the years. I also have a minor work-related interest in property so like to keep up with whats what on that subject.
  10. Being familiar with nearly all the city, and taking account of the opinions of others - why do you feel the need to ask?
  11. Mid to late 1980s judging by the style of the houses there.
  12. A long time spent living in Sheffield suggests to me that the answer given was pretty much accurate.
  13. Where they always used to turn round for decades. Crookes terminus (Heavygate Avenue)
  14. That house would cost nowhere near £20k to finish it off! More like £12k off the top of my head. Someone got a good priced house there I suspect. Said before on here, Around S8 in general is Sheffield best option at the moment - its the area to go to for lower cost decent housing.
  15. Can you elaborate why your research has concluded this? Is your conclusion a generic one, or would you say it may not apply to everyone? I could elaborate, and probably elaborate further if required. Firstly I have only ever rented one property out, and that was enough for me. What I do do is renovate houses, not to the very highest standard but certainly to a good one; and these are often bought by landlords who want a turn key option to the rental market - This is not in Sheffield though, so it is seemingly a very different market or rather markets. The general s8 area appeals to me because it is one of the few areas where the price difference between a "house needing renovation" and one in good order is still sufficient to make it a profitable venture. It is also going beyond "up and coming" and starting to be a desirable residential area. The other areas that supposedly fit that criteria, in my opinion do not do that. Hillsborough, Walkley and Malin Bridge have promised for years but have never quite made it is a "want to live" area (more like OK really) and Crookes has either gone past that barrier or is in a state of flux as student housing is in decline.
