Fancy a bargain? Price of Huddersfield mansion Banney Road Hall slashed again to less than £2m!

THE asking price for a Huddersfield mansion has been slashed yet again.

THE asking price for a Huddersfield mansion has been slashed yet again.

Banney Royd Hall has been on the market for five years, with buyers reluctant to splash out for the seven-acre property on Halifax Road in Edgerton.

The 10-bedroom Grade 1 listed mansion has been slipping in price since it went on the market for £5m in November 2005.

In 2008 an offer of £3.5m was accepted but the deal fell through and Banney Royd went back on sale for £3.3m. In 2009 estate agent Carter Jonas reacted to the recession by slashing the asking price further to £2.5m.

And now Banney Royd is being advertised on property websites for £1.95m.

The main building includes a billiards room, morning room and butler’s pantry. The property also includes a cottage, coach house, stables, coal house and three garages.

Banney Royd was designed by architect Edgar Wood and built in 1902 for cloth manufacturer Emmanuel Hoyle.

The property was used as a teachers’ centre for some years and sold off by Kirklees Council in 1995.
