Spenfield House, Headingley

One of the north’s best preserved Victorian homes.

Bought on impulse by our client Henry Kordowicz, is the magnificent Spenfield House. It sits proudly in the grounds of the Village Hotel in Headingley. Widely considered as one of the best victorian homes in the north of England, it has undergone a massive transformation.

After a long battle, planning was eventually granted. Allowing Mr Kordowicz to begin the huge renovation, brining back original features that had been lost over the many years of the buildings commercial use. Formerly built for banker James Oxley between 1875 and 1877, Spenfield House was designed by architect George Corson. Who was also responsible for Leeds’ Grand Theatre and city library. During its construction, Oxley spared absolutely no expense and the highly decorative interior became widely celebrated. From the Byzantine inspired marble columns to the stained glass ceiling lantern, Spenfield oozes charm and elegance.




Breathing new life.

In addition to restoring the properties original features, the architect and builder have specified luxury bathrooms, high quality joinery & kitchens throughout. To further enhance the developments charm, our client enlisted us to install a luxurious show apartment.

Comprising 3 bedrooms, a spacious kitchen/living/dining space & a generous hallway. The show apartment perfectly balances a traditional setting with contemporary interior. As well as  modern open plan living, the apartment offers luxurious marble bathrooms throughout.
