Situated in the middle of open countryside, Moor House on the edge of Farnley Tyas is believed to be a former brewery.

Current owners David and Kirsten Wormald, say they have found old beer bottles in the garden bearing the name T E Dickinson of Farnley Tyas, and have been told by locals that the property, which dates back to 1850, was originally used for brewing.

The property was previously two houses but is now one large home and offers very versatile accommodation set within 2.9 acres of land featuring gardens, lawns, dry stone walls, a kitchen garden, meadow and paddock. The house looks over open fields sewn with rapeseed and poppies, and towards the village of Farnley Tyas.

Internally the house is full of character and has many period features including original fireplaces, high ceilings, old style radiators, deep skirting boards and ornate detail to walls, ceilings and door architraves.

Over the past 18 months David and Kirsten have overseen an extensive programme of work which has renovated and modernised the property to make it into a contemporary and welcoming family home.

Entry is gained via the front porch of this home, situated on the road between Farnley Tyas and Thurstonland. You’ll find a welcoming tiled hallway leading to an impressive staircase. Also on the ground-floor is a drawing room with large windows, a smaller sitting room (currently used as a children’s playroom), a utility room, a downstairs cloakroom and a large dining kitchen with windows on three sides. The kitchen has recently been fitted with oak units, tall pantry cupboards, granite work surfaces, a Yorkshire stone flagged floor and a period Aga cooking range.

The other rooms on the ground-floor are all of a generous size, particularly the drawing room which is currently set up as a lounge and dining area, with numerous tall windows, which have shutters, and twin French doors leading onto a York stone flagged patio area. The room has an elegant ornate carved timber fireplace: just one of many throughout the house.

The second smaller sitting room offers a versatile space which could be used as a playroom, TV room or office.

The five bedrooms, which take up the first and second-floors, include a large master bedroom with en-suite bathroom located on its own landing area away from the other bedrooms. This room has high ceilings and a period marble fireplace, enhanced by a brand new en-suite which includes a double walk-in shower.

Three more double rooms are situated on this floor along with the house bathroom which has just had a brand new suite installed which includes a stand alone claw-foot bath as well as a large walk-in shower.

Situated on the second-floor is another large bedroom which has its own landing and could be used as a study/office space.

On the lower ground-floor there is a huge space, including vaulted cellars, which could be put to any number of uses and has its own separate access. There is also a double garage which could be incorporated into this living space.

Kirsten said: “Many people think of this house as being a bit isolated and on its own but I’ve never felt like that, particularly in summer. If you’re in the garden, there are lots of people passing by, either walking or on horseback and always someone wanting to chat about this house. We’ve been told lots about the house by the people in Farnley Tyas and although it’s close to the village, it is actually in the true Green Belt.

“We understand the front porch was formerly from a Huddersfield market, was taken down and re-built here.’’

This is a fabulous detached house which would make a super family home or even conversion to a bed and breakfast, holiday lets or other business use.
