Becca Hall is an outstanding country house offering tremendous potential. Built in 1783, the property was recently converted and extended by The National Grid and used as a control centre for the Leeds electrical network. Currently with office use, the main house retains many original features including some fine, ornate plasterwork, panelling and a flying stone staircase, to the rear is a substantial brick building measuring some 34,000sq ft. This important Grade II listed house has great potential to convert to a number of alternative uses, including hotel and residential, subject to the necessary consents.
