The future of flexible living

For many of us, our homes have had to work a lot harder for us over the last year as we turned our usual routines upside down. Whether you’ve been a teacher in your kitchen by day and a chef by night, or if your garage has become the venue for your HIIT sessions, your home has had to be more flexible than ever.

At Redbrik, we’ve noticed our buyers’ demands change dramatically throughout 2020, and many requirements appear to be staying put on people’s lists in 2021. Greater indoor and outdoor spaces are in high demand in Sheffield and Chesterfield, particularly living spaces that can serve more than one purpose.

This home in Walton has a generous detached garage and workshop to the rear of the property, offering the opportunity to have a workspace or gym separate to the home. Alternatively, this property in Killamarsh features a detached garage with a games room on the upper level, creating the perfect work from home space.

Opportunities for conversion are extremely attractive right now. Many prospective buyers are looking for projects to fill their spare time (and get their DIY fix!). Sheffield properties aren’t short of basements, lofts and gardens to accommodate the need for added space.

Situated in the heart of Greystones, this three-bedroom home offers the opportunity to convert the cellar (subject to necessary planning consent). No matter how you would use the space, it would further add to the property’s appeal. If you’re looking for a doer-upper, this two-bedroom terrace in Chesterfield is currently a blank canvas that could be modernised to your taste and requirements.

We use our understanding of the local and national property market to ensure your requirements are met. With our diverse property descriptions and 3D walkthrough tours, our team showcase how each home could be used and loved to suit a range of families.

The good news is, now is a great time to think about selling your home as there are many prospective buyers in the market looking for their next home. If you have spare bedrooms or a garden room, this will be sure to capture the attention of those searching.
