| Eastfield House had been the subject of an insensitive
conversion from the original Pennine farm buildings in the 1960s.
Now, once again it is in harmony with the distinctive upland landscape.
|Many of West Yorkshire's traditional agricultural
buildings hae been badly converted for residential use in the last
25 years, but a growing number is now changing hands, presenting
an opportunity for better realisation of their potential.
|Eastfield House occupies a beautiful, village edge
site, but the original muscular character of the buildings had been
lost through inappropriate alteration and extension; multi centred
arches, mixed stone courses and Spanish joinery details revealed
disregard for local construction and the house looked ill at ease.
