Time to look around the Clock House.

Byline: David Himelfield News Reporter

THIS historic beauty could be yours for PS585,000.

But even if you can't afford it, you can still look around The Clock House, at Kirklees Hall, near Brighouse.

The Grade I-listed four-bedroom house sits on a private estate with beautiful, manicured grounds.

The house was part of the south wing of the hall which is thought to date back to the 17th century.

Kirklees Hall was the seat of the Armytage family, which owned the Kirklees Estate from the 16th century.

Lady Margarete Armytage had lived at Kirklees Hall with her husband Sir John Armytage.

She moved to a smaller house next to the site of Kirklees Priory following Sir John's death in 1983, and the hall was divided into houses and apartments.

These include the 17th century Carr House, which formed the front of the hall. Carr House is currently for sale at PS1.2m.

Following Lady Armytage's death in 2008 the estate went on the market for PS7m.

The 750-acre site was sold to business magnate Louis Pickersgill in 2013, who lives on the estate.

The estate, now separate from Kirklees Hall, is supposed to be the last resting place of Robin Hood.
