Abandoned mansions around the world: Pineheath house

Our passion of the week is this british mansion, which was sold last year after 27 years closed to the world.

The 40-bedroom mansion, 12-bathroom abandoned mansion in Harrogate, Yorkshire was sold in a multi-million deal to a local businessman who wants to make it a family home again.

The luxury home belonged to an indian shipping magnate and his wife, who were friends with the royal family and used it to spend autumn every year after spending the summer at their Windsor home.

Sir Dhunjibhoy and Lady Bomanji were well-known figures in British high society. They socialized with the royals and attended all the nobility top events, like, for example, the Royal Ascot.

Scattered throughout Pineheath house are relics which span many decades going back to the 1920s.

There is a vintage internal telephone system which still lists Sir Dhunjibhoy’s bedroom and dressing room, his wife’s bedroom and the other main house areas.

Among these relics there is also a portrait from the Queen, still hanging on the wall of the drawing room, as well as a portrait of Sir Dhunjibhoy.

An invitation to a prestigious lunch in 1973 still lies on a table alongside yellowed newspaper cuttings.

We specially love the beautiful handpainted wallpaper from the 1920’s.

The house has not been touched since Lady Bomanji died in 1986.

Bomanji was a philanthropist who used his wealth to support Britain’s war effort against the Germans in World War One which led to him being knighted.
He gave generously to charities which supported ex-servicemen and war widows and included Field Marshal Douglas Haig amongst his social circle.
