Tucked away in the grounds of Kirklees Hall, The Clock House is one of the beautiful period buildings that form part of the Grade I listed property.

Accessed via private electric gates, the four bedroom house has its own generous lawned gardens and shares a communal 18 acres of meadow, woodland and formal landscaped gardens.

The property was fully renovated in 2001 by Historic Restorations, and has charming character features including leaded mullion windows, solid oak flooring, exposed beams and timbers, an Inglenook fireplace, oak balustrade staircase and 12ft ceilings.

The first floor rooms include a breakfast kitchen, dining hall and study, accessed from the main entrance with a raft of period features.

The drawing room has many original features, such as a part glazed timber door overlooking the courtyard; leaded mullioned windows and a solid fuel cast iron stove.

The first floor has four double bedrooms: the master bedroom with a period fireplace and ensuite shower room; three further characterful bedrooms and the house bathroom.

The vast attic has two separate staircases which could be adapted into a dressing room, playroom or additional bedroom - and the original workings of the clock can be seen as you look into the clock tower.

The Clock House is on the market with Yorkshire's Finest for £585,000.

The Grade I-listed four-bedroom house sits on a private estate with beautiful, manicured grounds.

The house was part of the south wing of the hall which is thought to date back to the 17th century.

Kirklees Hall was the seat of the Armytage family, which owned the Kirklees Estate from the 16th century.

Lady Margarete Armytage had lived at Kirklees Hall with her husband Sir John Armytage.

She moved to a smaller house next to the site of Kirklees Priory following Sir John’s death in 1983, and the hall was divided into houses and apartments.

These include the 17th century Carr House, which formed the front of the hall. Carr House is currently for sale at £1.2m.

Following Lady Armytage’s death in 2008 the estate went on the market for £7m.

The 750-acre site was sold to business magnate Louis Pickersgill in 2013, who lives on the estate.

The estate, now separate from Kirklees Hall, is supposed to be the last resting place of Robin Hood.
