2 Bedroom Apartment (Now Let)
22 Brooklyn Works, Green Lane, Kelham Island, Sheffield City Centre, Sheffield
Available from 6th July 2014, this 2 bedroom furnished apartment in desirable Brooklyn Works is located on the top (second) floor with a great view of the river and its resident wildlife. Brooklyn Works was one of the original factories converted to city living flats and is well known in Kelham Island for having a good sense of community.
The property is particularly well-suited to university staff or similar professionals.
Brooklyn Works is brilliantly located, being 2 mins from the Shalesmoor tram stop (Blue and Yellow tram routes); near the bus routes serving the north of Sheffield (e.g. 11, 12, 14, 17, 53, 57, 57A, 58, 77 & 78); and right by the inner ring road for easy access to the Parkway and M1 by car.
Getting to town on foot only takes 15 mins via West Bar to Campo Lane behind the Cathedral near the centre of town, or you have a choice of buses and trams.
