A historic Turkish baths building located in Sheffield’s city centre is up for sale at Mark Jenkinson & Son.
The Victorian building, aptly found on Victoria Street, dates back to the 1800s and features what is believed to be the oldest Turkish suite in the country. Offers for the landmark SPA 1877 are starting above £695,000.
Formerly known as Glossop Road Baths, the Turkish Baths originally closed in 1990 after 127 years. It re-opened in 2004 after SPA 1877 developers delivered a £2 million restoration, which revived many of the original features including mosaic flooring, glazed brick walls and arched ceilings.
Situated close to the city centre, University of Sheffield and central hospitals, the building offered the traditional Turkish bath experience alongside contemporary spa treatments before closing in September this year.
Mohammed Mahroof, consultant chartered surveyor for Mark Jenkinson & Son, comments: “There is no building like it in Sheffield – it is one of those unique historic buildings which people in the city love.”
“Viewing is a must to appreciate the immaculate restoration that was been carried out to include what is believed to be the oldest Turkish suite in the country. There are also a number of rooms which provided treatments.”
He adds: “This truly is a one-off opportunity to buy a one-off building and we’re expecting major interest, not least from community groups.”
