Full description

The Merchant's House is one of the oldest in the area, dating back to around 1620, and is of great historical interest. After being lovingly restored over recent years it now offers spacious accommodation that includes 3/4 bedrooms, together with 3 reception rooms. As you can imagine of a property of this age and type, The Merchants House oozes a wealth of charm and character along with many original features that include some fantastic timberwork, stone mullion windows, fireplaces and an oak lined salt cellar. Also comprising of secondry glazing throughout which was installed by a special heritage company. Very rarely do house of this quality come on to the open market and such a detailed viewing is strongly recommended.

This grade II listed building is felt to be of such historic importance, that it appears in a guide to rural houses in West Yorkshire, published by the Royal Commission for Historic Monuments of England. Three of the internal doors are thought to be original to the house, and are the work of the same craftsman used at Oakwell Hall, not far away, as is the salt cellar by the parlour fireplace in the sitting room.

An outshut was later added as an extension for the cloth merchant, built to provide extra storage and a trade area as the textile trade expanded. Now the house offers unique family sized accommodation for those who are searching for a home of character and charm.

The property is situated on the fringe of Batley in the area of Carlinghow, and provides good access to the motorway network for those who commute on a regular basis. There are good reputable schools in the area and excellent amenities nearby.
