Also within walking distance is local woodland, a gymnasium and sport centres. For travel further afield, newly upgraded Dore and Totley train station is walkable, offering rail routes to Manchester, Leeds, York and Nottingham, and with connection in under 10 minutes to Sheffield, for travel to London and beyond.
Beautifully appointed over two floors, Fairmont House spans c.5000 sq.ft and includes a fabulous one bedroomed apartment that can be accessed internally or via a separate external entrance, making it ideal for dependent relatives, guests or staff quarters. Set beneath a stone columned canopy and providing a grand entrance to the home, the primary entrance door opens to a welcoming large entrance hall that features a lofty galleried landing above. The heart of the home is without doubt the bright and airy dining kitchen, which offers plenty of space for dining, relaxing and entertaining and connects to the full-width outdoor seating terrace through three sets of double patio doors. An abundance of reception rooms fill the ground floor with an extremely generous drawing room that links with a wonderful formal dining room and further sitting room. There are also two versatile rooms that are currently used as an office and snug. Five double bedrooms adorn the first floor, presenting ample space for a growing family and boasting an exceptionally spacious, sumptuous master bedroom suite with three Juliet balconies overlooking the stunning cream porcelain terrace and beautiful gardens.
Standing behind stone walling and with a pillared entrance, Fairmont House certainly makes a lasting impression thanks to its attractive frontage that features sash windows set within feature window surrounds and a sizeable, gravelled driveway. Added by the current owners, an adjoining large double garage provides undercover parking and houses the self-contained apartment. The south-facing aspect of the home can be enjoyed to the rear, where established gardens are filled with life and a terrace which stretches the width of the home, presenting plentiful space for comfortable seating, dining and a host of outdoor activities. Within the garden there are numerous areas, including lawns, mature specimen planting, a characterful orchard containing apple and pear trees and an abundance of wildlife. Due to the size of the external space, there is opportunity to further extend the home or add extra buildings (subject to planning), if desired.
The local community of Dore is varied and active, offering lots of friendly groups and events throughout the year. Surrounding localities such as Millhouses and Ecclesall contain many supermarkets, bars, restaurants and shops. The location of Fairmont House is well placed for access to the glorious Peak District and Sheffield city centre. Popular outdoor spaces and walking routes can be enjoyed close by, such as Whirlow Brook Park, Ladies Spring Wood, Ecclesall Woods and Limb Valley.
