A Wheel Window

Grade I listed Tudor open hall house in West Yorkshire for sale; it comes complete with a replica cabin from a 1920s ocean liner and an ‘apple and pear wheel window’

 

Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty near the Rochdale Canal in Sowerby Bridge, West Yorkshire, Wood Lane Hall is a Grade I listed Tudor open hall house that has recently gone of sale for £750,000 ($980,000, €842,000 or درهم3.6 million).

 

Centred around a two-storey open hall with a gallery over, the 7,950 square foot property also includes 5 reception rooms, a study, a bespoke pine kitchen with an AGA, 6 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, cellars and a double garage.

 

Aside from such things as embattled parapets, gargoyles, decorative plasterwork and paneling, the building – which dates to 1649 – features an unusual circular window known as a ‘rose wheel’ or ‘apple and pear’ window. One of the bedrooms was decorated in the 1940s with the insertion of the contents of a 1920s ship’s cabin and though described “in need of remedial work,” this fine building could easily be crafted back into a very fine residence.

 

Edkins & Holmes are the agents handling the sale.

  1. A f***ing flea pit hovel dirty dump!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wrecking ball needs to pay urgent visit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The stone is filthy dirty and not even worth saving!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The interior —— not in any way MAGA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why are you Poms so into these ugly relics of the Dark Bloody Ages???????? Only some sicko would want to live in this old s***hole!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Disgusting Steeple Times boring story once again and not enough focus on supporting dear Gerry and Kate McCann in their search for their beloved daughter Madeleine. What is wrong with you people? You should be helping search for Madeleine – FIND MADELEINE, FIND HER NOW

      • Madeleine McCann is/was a British child that disappeared whilst on holiday with her parents in Portugal in 2007. £12 million of public money has been spent on the search for her surprisingly but Gillian Trott does not think that enough. She relates all matters to this and repeatedly tells our readers of her belief in the need to focus on nothing but a single child whose parents didn’t bother to pay for a babysitter that fateful night.

  3. Where do you find these beauties, Matthew? You really are quite the newshound for unusual things. I love it and I love logging in here. Keep it up and ignore the haters.

  4. I again write to tell your cretin face that you are scum of the earth and damaged a beautiful wonderful family by helping Gina Miller get the stunning Viscount St Davids taken from the arms of his loving wife and child. You should be ashamed and apologize to him immediately.

  5. Showing its age and in need of some TLC but still utterly fabulous and worth preserving – I like to think that also describes me, cough cough.

  6. I LOVE this house. Rod was so cruel but he was right about it needing a good cleaning. I could make this house sparkle and also make it warm and inviting. Different people life different things. Houses like this are what I dream about .

  7. Is everyone commenting here British? If so, we yanks have a very distorted image you all being so proper. Some of you sound like moronic twits (looking at you Rod). Cheers from across the pond.

  8. I have visited this place many times as my father worked on the farm. I was aged about 10 or 11 when I first went there. I remember that they had at least one African Ridgeback dog and when my father went for the job interview it bit me. Despite the negative experiences on my first visit, I had many happy memories when I used to help milking the cows. The owners were all brothers and sisters who never married and they also owned a mill somewhere in Halifax.

  9. Wonderful story I can’t afford the house but I’m going to go visit it next week anyway. It’s so beautiful! It’s saying come visit and hear my stories. Can’t wait!

  10. I love this house, I’d turn it into a retreat. Pity I can’t afford it. There is something spectacular about old buildings with heaps of history.

  11. Hi guys,
    I was buying this house about two months ago.but on reflection the man who resides there is a male version of miss hathersham,and never done a thing at it in 25 years, it’s gone to far now, and the price is far far to much, as much as I love it.
