Somerset House, Halifax

West Yorkshire

Somerset House is a Grade 1 listed building in the middle of Halifax that was built in the 1750’s for a state visit by George II, King of England. By 2005 the building was in piecemeal ownership and in a poor state of repair. The Council received a European grant of £2 million to merge all the interests and then sold the property to a local developer. Sadly his attempt to breathe new life into the property ran into difficulty in 2016 and Teakwood acquired the property in a part refurbished state for £690,000. Subsequently a further £350,000 has been committed and the property now provides 7 flats, offices, a bar & restaurant and 4 retail units producing a rental income of circa £190,000 pa.
