Manor House, Ivy Park Rd Ranmoor (Mr Hogg?)

Recommended Posts

Searched for threads on this but not turned up anything...

 

We recently moved to Crosspool at the bottom of Watt Lane bordering Ranmoor. A few walks around the local area and can't helping gawping at a slightly (very) audacious and bling local house on Ivy Park Rd called Manor House. As I walked by and stared, a bit stunned by the enthusiastic Christmas decorations, I asked my other passers by staring in the gates who lived there and was told a local Mr Hogg? Name didn't mean much to me and wondered if anyone could fill me in on some local history/knowledge of this house and the owners?

I lived just round the corner from where you are now...on Tetney Road. Moved there in 1959. The houses were built by Knowles Bros who lived directly behind us in a large blue brick house.. I knew a lot of the houses on Ivy Park Road from a paper round, it had some famous people living there. Whereabouts is Manor House?

It was a much smaller (and "ordinary") house, heavily extended a few years ago (maybe 10 or 15 years ago, I lose track of time). There used to be a few "HOG" related personalised number plates on the cars. Not been past / noticed them for a while.

 

I've regularly seen the cars at Towsure, also, so there may be a link.

The house has no history. It was built in the late 90's by a local gents outfitter. There is no manor that it was the house of.

Yes, the Hogg family are the owners of Towsure. Edited by hillsbro

Went past there today. Their Halloween decorations are quite something. Top effort!
