My wife, baby daughter and I live in a three-floored terraced house in a quiet street near the centre of Sheffield, one of the UK's friendliest cities.
You go up some steps to the front door, which opens to a living-room, with gas fire, cable TV, DVD, stereo, books, etc. Through that is the kitchen, with oven, hobs, microwave, fridge-freezer, toaster, kettle and so on. This opens on to the garden, which has a shed full of furniture for those summer barbecues... There is also a door down to the cellar, and a door leading upstairs, where you will find a bathroom (complete with shower and whirlpool spa bath!) and the first double bedroom. Another flight of stairs leads to the attic bedroom, with velux windows giving a view over the city.
There is central heating throughout, and UPVc windows.
The house is comfortable and cosy and just a stone's throw away from one of the main streets to head for in Sheffield if you are after quality restaurants and pubs.
Importantly, the same street leads right out into the Peak District, the UK's finest national park, where you will find quaint villages with tea-shops, country pubs with roaring fires, breathtaking views by the dozen, and as many walks rambles and wanders as you want!
The house is a ten minute walk to the City centre, where there is a cinema, more restaurants, bars, shopping, etc. We are also a 20min drive to Meadowhall, the UK's largest shopping mall.
The lights and sights of London are a quick two and a half hours by train or car.
I am training to be an English teacher at the moment; my wife is a Civil Servant, currently taking a sabbatical as a full-time mother to oour seven-month old daughter, Eve.
