    About this property

    • Banney Royd Hall is an important, Grade I Listed, Arts and Crafts house by the architect Edgar Wood. The house displays a wealth of Art Nouveau features including fabulous ashlar chimney breasts flanked by pilasters or buttresses with ornate cornices many with art nouveau decoration, stone mullioned windows, splendid oak panelling, extensive ornate detailing typical of the period, and barrel-vaulted ceilings.

      The house was built in 1901 for the late William Henry Armitage. In 1942 it was requisitioned by Huddersfield Corporation's Civil Defence Committee, to be its Report and Control Centre. It was succeeded after the War by the National Fire Service, who used the house as a training centre for firemen until the 1960s, then it was acquired by Huddersfield Education Department as a Teachers' Centre. The house was reinstated as a private house in the 1990s, and lovingly restored by the current owners in recent

      The ground floor offers an excellent balance of formal reception rooms, and a kitchen dining room with an adjacent sitting room ideal for family life. The more formal rooms include an impressive entrance hall with oak panelling and an important ashlar fireplace, a fine drawing room overlooking the gardens, library and wonderful orangery with a bar. The Billiard Room is of particular note, with a recessed seating area and stunning fireplace. The finely proportioned dining room has another ornate fireplace behind a stone, broad round arch with a gilded figure of “The Angel Of The Rains”.

      The impressive oak staircase has a mullioned window and barrelled ceiling above, leading to the first floor landing. The impressive master suite has a dressing room and bathroom with a roll top bath with claw feet, and faces south over the gardens. There are eight further bedrooms, some with exposed beams and further period details, and an additional three bathrooms. A further staircase leads to the second floor where there is a further bedroom and office.

      To the rear of the house there is parking, a recently refurbished one bedroom coach house, and three bedroom cottage, separated by the original stables with a loft above.

    Banney Royd Hall must be one of the finest houses to have been on the market for some time, architecturally splendid, and a fine home too.
