Where you should buy in Sheffield
Having shed the skin of its industrial heritage, the modern Sheffield is a contemporary, dynamic city that’s seen lots of redevelopments in and around the city centre over recent years. A great place to buy a new home, here we hone in on a number of the best areas to consider if you’re asking where to buy a house in Sheffield.
If you want to live in the heart of the city, it doesn’t get much better than St Paul’s. The central location makes the area popular among young professionals and people who work in the city, as well as with investors looking to take advantage of Sheffield’s regeneration and status as one of the UK’s fastest growing cities.
A pleasant village to the east of the city centre, the atmosphere in Catcliffe is very different to central spots such as St Paul’s. If you’re interested in a quieter pace of life close to home, this could be the area for you. Especially if you’re looking to buy a new build property, thanks to fantastic developments such as The Glassworks along Poplar Way.
Right next door to Catcliffe, Waverley is another great place to live if you’d rather be on the outskirts of town. Also offering excellent access to Rotherham, our Momentum development delivers a lovely community of 3 and 4 bedroom new builds only 15 minutes from the centre of Sheffield.
Near to fellow popular areas Fulwood and Dore, Ecclesall is a desirable place to live. Bursting with character, it’s known for its independent shops, cafes, bars and restaurants, and is a desirable place for young professionals and growing families alike. The local primary school is good, according to Ofsted, while there are some excellent secondaries nearby too.
If a key consideration regarding where to buy in Sheffield revolves around access to great schools, don’t miss Stannington. A selection of outstanding local schools makes this a popular area among families, while its position to the west of the city provides wonderful access to the Peak District.
Another sought-after Sheffield suburb on account of its location on the edge of the Peaks, Oughtibridge is just under five miles north-west of the city centre. This is a drive of around 15 minutes in good traffic, making it popular among those who work in more central areas.
