The property is situated on Shearwood Road, which is a no-through street accessed off Glossop Road, adjacent to the junction with Clarkson Street. Glossop Road leads East towards the inner ring-road, situated within 350m and then immediately continues into the city centre.
Shearwood Road is within close proximity to Sheffield Children's Hospital, Sheffield Hallamshire Hospital (and associated Hospitals) and the University of Sheffield. As such, the majority of the surrounding properties are a mix of uses linked to these establishments/institutions, as well as private commercial occupiers and various residential occupiers.
The properties are a pair of semi-detached, Victorian properties originally constructed as dwelling houses, but more recently used for academic purposes, with accommodation over ground and first floors.
There is access via either side elevation to a rear garden area. There is also a small outbuilding (former garage) and driveway allowing room for a single vehicle to park off-road adjacent to No7. Both buildings benefit from basements which were previously used for storage.
Although there is an interconnecting door leading between No5 and No7 at first floor level, this could easily be reinstated to form 2 separate properties once again.
The properties remain in a dilapidated state of repair with signs of some historic structural repairs to the property, further details available upon request.
