47 Hammond Street, Netherthorpe S3 7PP home swap

A council bedsit with a nice but small garden. The flat is small with a futon on the floor for a bed. It has an adequate kitchen with fridge/freezer and cooker, no washing machine, microwave or dishwasher. It has a nice bathroom with a good shower. The sitting room has a French door to the garden and level access to the road where there is free parking. There is music with CD and Cassette player, radio, free wi fi but no television. There is a BT phone. There is a table at which 2 people could eat in the sitting room, with napkins and place mats! Entry to the small block of flats and maisonettes ( 3 single story flats on the ground floor and 4 maisonettes above) is by a key fob at the front entrance. It is not luxuriously decorated or furnished, but it is clean and quite nice.

About the location

Netherthorpe lies just north of the city centre, the tram stop is a 2 minute walk away which carries you up to the University which is the next stop, it is an eight minute walk from Hammond Street. City Centre is an eight minute tram ride. The bedsit has the green space "The Ponderosa" adjacent to it where the weekend of the 24th-26th July Tramlines Festival features which I am looking forward to. Sheffield has a lot going on culturally, and is bordered by a beautiful National Park (Peak Distric), historic villages, and prime examples of an industrial heritage ( Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet, Kelham Island Industrial Museum )
My neighbours are all "good" including Russel (next door), elderly Marrion & George, and upstairs Chinese students and Sylvie.
