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.
