Estate agent Yorkshire’s Finest says Grafton House, on Savile Road, offers “a world of possibilities and beginnings in creativity and refurbishment”.

The property benefits from a wealth of period features and offers more than 7,000 sq feet of accommodation.

The agent says the house, whether it be used as a family home or a business “would benefit from programme of updating throughout”.

The main entrance to the property is a grand opening, drawing inspiration from 16th-century Italian villas, the stone construction is ornate and beautiful. Inside you step onto an original Victorian tiled floor, while the staircase, galleried landing, and lantern ceiling are described as “breathtaking”.

The ground floor enjoys three reception rooms as well as a breakfast kitchen and home office, while the first floor has four extremely large bedrooms. Another four bedrooms can be found to the top floor.
