This historic house, in a Wakefield conservation village, is said to have a secret tunnel.

As the oldest house in its conservation village, The Old Court House is thought to date back to 1642, and is reputed to have a tunnel from its cellar to nearby Woolley Hall. This harks back to its English Civil War origins.

The Grade II listed detached family house was a farmhouse originally, and it has been sympathetically restored, to reinstate its outstanding period features.

One focal point within the property is the central dining room with a minstrels’ gallery over, which accompanies a formal sitting room, a living room, and a breakfasting kitchen. There is a cloakroom with wet room off the entrance hall.

The kitchen is impressive, with high quality fixtures and fittings, and white granite worktops. There are some stunning fireplaces, cast iron radiators and exposed ceiling timbers throughout the property.
