Hollins Lane, Keighley, West Yorkshire, BD20
A thirteen bedroomed Grade II listed arts and crafts detached house with adjoining outbuildings, coach house and dilapidated gatehouse, detached bungalow standing in listed gardens extending to approximately 7 acres.
Influenced by the beginning of the Arts & Crafts Movement, was designed as a tall manor house in 1897 by James Ledingham for Mr Prince-Smith a local businessman and extended in 1912 for the Prince-Smith family, which include an off centre four storey tower topped with irregular battlements, square corner turrets and a very tall canted bay for the newly created great hall transforming it externally into a baronial style residence. Fittings of the highest standard were used throughout Whinburn both externally and internally, so creating an Arts & Crafts house of supreme quality.
Whinburn with its adjoining Coach House is noted as an important country property with a gateway and lodge house, listed Grade II buildings for historic or architectural interest. Stands in large gardens and follies extending to approximately 7 acres, and listed in the English Heritage Register of Parks and Gardens. The accommodation is principally planned across two floors and a particular feature being the baronial hall together with seven reception rooms and thirteen bedrooms and an array of storage and bathrooms together with the adjoining outbuildings, separate detached bungalow and dilapidated gate house. Currently used as a private home from which a business has been run and has been previously been used as a school and lends itself to a variety of uses, subject to the relevant planning being obtained. This important home will only be fully revealed by an internal inspection and is on the outskirts of the village of Utley, which has long been regarded as one of Keighley’s premier residential areas.
