  1. We live in Foxhill and love it. Plenty of green space, good transport links, a large array of shops (soon to be extended by the opening of an Asda superstore in Parson Cross) and a great community spirit. It had a bad reputation at one time, but the area is on the up and the problems are largely solved.
  2. Is this not something to ask your estate agent and even then how would they know?
  3. Not very close to Longley Lane though. Driving through town at rush hour would make that almost a hours drive. As others have said S6 is a good place to start and then the surrounding areas such as Grenoside, Oughtibridge, Wharncliffe. The north side of Sheffield also tends to be cheaper for rents/purchasing. We live in Foxhill which is S6 but one of the cheaper parts with a good mix of social/council housing as well as private homes ranging from small flats to large detached housing all of which are in close proximity (the top of our road for example) to open countryside but still relatively close (10 minutes drive) to the city centre.
  4. I shall offer the same advice as i do to everyone asking this same question. Go to the area yourself at different times of the day and night. Then make your own desicion, based on what you see. What is fine for one person isnt for the next. For what it is worth we viewed some homes in the area (on the new estate) and really liked them. We just found our ideal home in Foxhill otherwise we would have been happy to live there.

  6. However you cant compare house values 10 years ago with house values today. The value of the pound has also changed. Affordability based on average wage and average house price is a far better indication.
  7. The lack of properties for sale is having a positive effect on prices. Have a drive around and see how many for sale boards you see and how many of these have sold plastered over them.
  8. We live on Powley Road and have had no major problems in the three years we have lived there. In fact we really quite like it. There are far worse areas to live.
  9. Also bear in mind that you will now have to handle the transaction. Estate agents (good ones anyway) engage in a lot of behind the scenes work such as contacing all parties to the contract,chasing up exchange dates etc. You will now be responsible for all of this work as you no longer have a contract with the estate agent.
  10. There is the new park on Broadfield Road as well.
  11. Living in Woodthorpe obviously did wonders for your education. The spelling and grammar on show here is second to none.
  12. A few of the city centre apartment blocks had issues with this when first built. I suggest you talk to the buildings maintanance company and see if your block was one of them. If it is some remedial wors will be necessary to stop the water ingress around the windows.
