Upper Lane, Halifax, HX3


Are you looking for a historic home with bags of character and a pasture for a horse? You're in for a real treat with Northfield Gate Farm... We understand this was originally a small church serving this part of Northowram, and was converted to a house many years ago. It retains some fabulous features, however, including a shaped entrance door, stone framed windows, full height stone fireplaces with wood burners, and a pitched minstral style ceiling to the dining hall. The building is not listed, and planning consent was granted in June 2021 to remove the conservatory and build another gable fronted wing, creating a much larger four bedroomed home... It could be a stunning house, couldn't it? Have a look at the proposed plans and see for yourself. Across the lane there's the pasture land, approx. 0.7 acres, so if you have a horse and would like to erect some stabling, this could be the ideal place for you. With a further 4 acres, or thereabouts, available by separate negotiation, there's as much a family of horse riders might need.


  • Detached former chapel
  • 0.7 acres of pasture plus gardens
  • Further pasture land available
  • Planning consent to extend
  • Retaining many original features
  • Surrounded by countryside
