Scott Hall Street
Grade II listed mid-Eighteenth century house including land and outbuiildings located close to Leeds city centre. Property requires renovation due to suffering some fire damage. The original five bedroom house is a large three storey built in brown hand-made bricks, with an outbuilding on the left.
We have been informed by the owner that this is a Queen Anne style building off Scott Hall street. The original Scott Hall was sited in Potternewton, south of Potternewton Lane near where Scott Hall place is now. This had been the home of the Scott family since ancestral roots in Scotland. Gilbert Scott, who died in 1542, was Lord of the manor at Potternewton. The original hall was demolished and the land was used for extensive quarrying. The then owner of the quarry decided to build a new Scott Hall in hand made bricks as at the time this was more prestigious and expensive than using Stone.
Land and Layout
Built from hand cast bricks is built over 3 floors, topped by fantastic exposed oak beams & pegged roof trusses. Currently split into 2 properties. It can easily be converted back to 1 as the current owners are in the early stages of work in progress. A 5/8 bed roomed home is easily possible with 3/4 reception rooms. Also great potential to create an orangery style kitchen overlooking the extensive courtyard situated on the upper terrace. The former owners the local council sold it with a view to converting the Hall into 4 Appartments, enquirers to Leeds City Council.
The land covers a large area and is currently planted with trees and shrubs (a detailed tree preservation survey has been done on the property and is available).
This property could offer someone the option of some cottage style development subject to planning or to have a working farm, or simply use the paddock in conjunction with the stables & back yard.
The outbuildings and land provide a fantastic development oppourtunity for both apartments and houses. Offered with no planning pemission at present.
