Part of cotton mill for sale, Cullingworth, Yorkshire

Partly converted former mill in the West Yorkshire countryside

Part of mill near Bradford, which has had a siginificant amount of work already done and requires finishing to create a three bedroom house

Kirbys House, Hewenden Mill, Cullingworth, BD13 5BP

An exciting redevelopment opportunity comprising part of a former cotton mill believed to date from circa 1790. The property benefits from an extant consent for conversion to form a three bedroom dwelling with private parking and a very generous separate garden area with useful container storage.

The property

Kirbys House is part of the old Hewenden Mill range of buildings which have all now been converted to residential use. Significant works have already been undertaken in Kirbys House with the building now ready for new owners to complete to their own requirements.


Conveniently located in a pleasant and secluded hamlet in the valley adjacent to Hewenden Beck, midway between the popular villages of Cullingworth and Harecroft. It is close to the iconic Cullingworth Viaduct, part of the Great Northern Railway Trail which is open to walkers and cyclists.

The popular village of Cullingworth offers a useful range of amenities including a post office, GP surgery and pharmacy, Co-op mini market, primary and secondary schools, village hall, two pubs, a conservative club, bowling green and cricket club. There is also an antique centre and a garden centre nearby. Cullingworth has good road links to the local business centres and is served by a number of bus routes.

Planning Permission

Full planning permission for the conversion of the building was approved by Bradford Metropolitan Council as part of Application No: 08/03626/COU. Dated 04 September 2008.

Conditions were subsequently discharged under Application No: 08/03626/SUB01. Dated 25 November 2009.

The adjoining units 2 and 3 have now been completed leaving Kirbys House as the final unit to be converted.

Work Done

A significant amount of work has been undertaken to Kirbys House which include the connection of services, a complete overhaul of the roof, general building works and the construction of the lower ground floor, first floor and roof space floors and the installation of windows and insulation.

Although some timber stud work has been erected and the garage walled out, the building is effectively a ‘blank canvas’ for prospective purchasers to design their own preferred layout.


The approved layout shows the total approximate gross internal floor area (inc. garage) as 225m2 (2422ft2). The accommodation is as follows:

Upper Ground Floor Level
Store (4.73m max x 4.47m)
Garage (5.60m x 4.29m)
Lobby with stairs (2.00m x 5.80m) stairs
Workshop (5.36m x 6.52m)

Ground Floor Level
Living room space (inc. vestibule) (6.56m x 11.12m)
Utility room (4.68m max x 4.55m)

Roof Space Floor
Bedroom / landing (6.46m x 6.73m)


The property includes the ownership of the shared drive extending from the main road, a useful area of parking immediately adjacent to the property and a very generous split level garden plot nearby which currently has a large container providing useful secure storage.

The container is already connected to mains water, mains electricity and has provision for data connection so could be converted to a home office, garden room or annexe subject to planning permission.


We understand the property is connected to mains water, mains gas and mains electricity (3 Phase).

Drainage is to a private package treatment plant system shared with three properties.
