There are a couple of interesting properties up for auction in Sheffield in the next few weeks.

Firstly, we came across the auction of this building in Attercliffe via WowHaus on Instagram. Advertised on Purple Bricks as a “4 bedroomed shop” this 1930’s art-deco building oozes potential. It was originally built as a shop for Burtons The Tailors, and since then has had many uses from a car body shop to theatre backdrop supplier, but many of the original features survive.

So what could it become now? A new bar, music venue or co-working office space perhaps with some residential units as well? The possibilities are endless (subject to permissions of course!). The online auction asks for offers in excess of £500,000, but that gets you around 6500 sq ft of floor space. We hope the new owners are able to work with the history of the building, retain the beautiful original features and creatively breath life back into the spaces.

Also up for auction soon is a plot on in Oughtibridge that we have been working on. The site sits in a secluded woodland site to the rear of a row of houses on the edge of the countryside. We developed a design for a unique new home that is formed in two blocks of accommodation – living accommodation running across the site and a two storey sleeping block that sits down into the hillside. More details of the project are here.

The developer has decided to sell the plot with the benefit of full planning permission and detailed technical drawings, so the plot is ready to develop and ideal for someone looking to build their own unique home with the benefit of planning permission already in place. The property will be auctioned by Mark Jenkinson on the 2nd March with a guide price of £150,000 and full details of the auction can be found here, or feel free to contact us if you would like to know more about the design.
