Honley is a vibrant village with good restaurants and convenient access to the Peak District and surrounding areas. It benefits from being close to the village of Holmfirth which is renowned for both art and music. There is a good range of local schools, services and recreational facilities with a wider range in the neighbouring town of Huddersfield.
Northgate House is a fine example of a country house built in the neo classical style of the Regency period and stands proudly surrounded by sweeping lawns and woodland. It provides a wealth of perfectly proportioned rooms leading off a central hallway with iron railed staircase. The square Georgian architecture is softened by curvaceous arches, moulded alcoves and a glass dome that allows the day to cascade down the staircase and fill the hall with natural light. Sumptuous bathrooms and some contemporary renovation, especially the airy, light, lofted library, have been introduced with such sympathy and cleanness of line that the historic elegance of the house has in no way been betrayed.
Within the grounds you will find a walled garden, a terrace, lovely trees of which the magnificent Copper Beech and specimen Holly that seems to tumble from sky to earth in complete symmetry are worthy of special note. There is woodland, areas of seclusion and sweeping lawns, the whole providing much wildlife habitat. It is a wonderful space in which to kick a ball, swing on a swing and explore the hidden pathways through the trees; a place of relaxation and inspiration for both child and adult alike; a place to breathe and recharge.
Built in 1812 for William Brook, a philanthropic wool industrialist whose marble tablet depicting the source of his wealth can still be found over the drawing room fireplace, this house is understood to have been the home of only two family lines thus it is a genuinely rare opportunity to purchase this beautiful house.
What our brochure cannot tell you is that there is an added dimension here that envelops you immediately you enter through the columned portico. This house has had the breath of lives well lived breathed into its walls. It has heard the sound of many children’s laughter, witnessed splendid parties and celebrations, played host to royalty and artists and reflects joy, welcome and security; not just a house but a home in grand style. View and be prepared to covet.
