Bright modern house (with gym and pool) on a renovated historic site - Sheffield home swap

Our house is a new building in a gated community on the site of a mid-nineteenth-century workhouse and hospital. Several of the original buildings survive and have been renovated as homes. The site is beautifully landscaped and the house overlooks the central gardens. The site boasts a leisure centre with pool, small children's paddling pool, jacuzzi, sauna and gym which is free to use for residents. The site is a very quiet, friendly and safe place. The house has floor to ceiling windows in every room and is wonderfully light and airy.

The house is split over three floors. We have 1 king-size and 2 double rooms (the first double-bed room on the ground floor can have a double or single bed; the second double room on the first floor has a single bed with good truckle bed pull-out). We also have a double-sized futon in a fourth room/study on the second floor (so the house sleeps 8 in total). The king-size room is on the second floor. There is a new kitchen with dining area (and separate utility room), a large living room and a study/fourth bedroom. A small, paved, south-facing garden is a real sun trap.

There are three bathrooms: an ensuite with shower off the king-size room, a family bathroom with bath and separate shower on the first floor, and a toilet on the ground floor.

About the location

The site is situated in a quiet leafy suburb very close to the city, lovely parks, grocery stores, boutique shops, cafes and restaurants. The area is great for walking, climbing and cycling. We also have a great regional theatre - Regional Theatre of the Year for 2013 and 2014. Sheffield is in the very centre of England with easy access to London (2 hours), other cities (Manchester/Leeds/York 1 hour) and the glorious Peak District (just 10 minutes away by car). Sheffield is often described as a city of villages. It is a large city with all the facilities you would expect, but has the feeling of a small city.
