West Scholes Hall, West Scholes, Queensbury, BD13
Situated in a quiet hamlet stands this detached stone built property. With a huge amount of character and family sized living accommodation this four bedroom property has much to offer. Attractive gardens and views over the valley also add to the appeal.
A period property of considerable character comes to market with a huge amount of history. Dating back to circa 1694 this Grade II listed home is made up of what was previously a farmhouse, brewery and dairy. Set in amongst fields this property is access via a small road that only serves a handful of houses, the benefits of this is the open space and long distance view that can only be admired.
With accommodation over two floors and accessed by two staircases there is a considerable amount of living space here, on the ground floor entrance hall, sitting room, library, dining kitchen and dining room. There is also a utility room to the rear that leads to a workshop/ storage area which was previously the Dairy and has a door that leads to a small cellar.
The first floor then has four bedroom, all of which are a good size and are serviced by a bathroom, shower room and ensuite.
Wrapping around the house is the gardens which at the front give driveway access to the covered parking and garage with a paved area with decorative borders. The lawn to the rest of the front then leads to a woodland garden to the side and has another access from the road. At the rear the open aspect gives views over field and the valley and has paved patio, lawn and borders.
The character and history of this house are superb including features such as, stone mullioned windows, panelling and an Inglenook stone fireplace. If you feel you are the next custodian like William and Isabel Hird who were Yeoman’s farmers and are believed to have had the house built in 1694 or the Briggs family who ran the Brewery in the 1800s you must come and view to see the charm and appeal.
**NOTES FOR LISTED BUILDINGS
Why are buildings Listed?
Buildings are listed to ensure that their special interest is considered before decisions on their future are made.
This does not mean that the building and its surroundings must be preserved intact at all costs. What it does mean is that changes will only be permitted if they respect the particular character and interest of the building and its setting.
Does listing control absolutely everything I can do to the inside of a building?
No. Listing is there to protect the historic fabric and character of the building for future generations, so replacing modern fittings like kitchen and bathroom suites, redecorating or other minor internal alterations would not require listed building consent. However if your listed building contains features like old fireplaces, decorative plasterwork, panelling or flooring it would be worth contacting the Design and Conservation Team on 01274 433952 before removal or alteration, as these features may well contribute to the building’s special interest.
